I just read the alien power Mouth from the upcoming expansion. Does anyone have any idea if Mouth gets to choose the card that is belched up, or is it random?

Unless otherwise specified, you get to look at cards on your alien sheet. And, unless otherwise specified, when an effect says to target one of something, you get to pick. "Send one of that player's ships to the warp" means you can target his Prometheus or his biggest Fungus stack, and "discard one card from your hand" means you get to pick. So "belch one of those cards back up" means it's your choice.
Good thing, too; if it were at random, then instead of just "meh" this alien would be rubbish. Choosing the card is the very soul of the effect.

I thought so. I just wanted to make sure.
My post was a case of posting before thinking.
