Ok, General Veers, Hologram gives Fire Support Mission to a trooper. On that troopers turn, it can use that ability to do 60 points of damage, with a save.

Dominate then allows me to take control of that character, and have it act as if it taking a turn.

That would, in theory, allow multiple fire control missions on one turn, correct?

Well, technically, it would still be 2 uses of Fire Support Mission on two different turns (one on the trooper's turn, one on the turn for the character with Dominate).

So, yes, using Dominate, you could use Fire Support Mission multiple times in a single round.

oooo that's nasty; nice catch. This could wipe a non force user out with bad rolls.

That was kind of my thought.

Buh-bye Boba.

And since it is a commander effect, killing the trooper is only useful if it is the LAST trooper within 2 squares of holo Veers. Otherwise, it just transfers.

You mean the last trooper that can get to within 2 squares of holo before holo activates again. I've even used Thrawn-swap to quick get a trooper in position before holo goes again.

BTW, I noticed that Veers' CE can only be used on a Trooper follower, but his "destruction criteria" only requires a Trooper ally to prevent the holo's untimely demise. I've used the Fel STO twice as a last-ditch effort.

Hmm... Dominate. Include Emperor Palpy to increase your odds, using a Force Point, of failing your save. I like it... lots :D

Yeah, but then you can't keep the ST "shooter" in thrawn's bubble, which, IMHO, is the only way to actually make GV,H useable. Beside, Thrawn's swap is incrediblly useful in getting a ST with FSM into unforseen positions (although once your opponent figures it out he starts acting accordingly). I personally, won 2 tournies with him doing just that. Revan took 2 orbital bombardments to the head without rerolls.
