We're about to start a game with Daybreak (all the expansions actually) and have a question about Balternate:
Does the restriction prevent him from using the Cylon action at all, or does that make him an exception to the "If you are not in the Brig," part of the Cylon action?
My thinking: Balternate cannot use the action unless in the Brig, thus cannot reveal himself unless in the brig. However, since the second half of the Cylon action cannot be used in the brig, and he can only use the Cylon action in the brig, the result is Balternate can never use the second half.
My brother: Balternate's "unless in the brig" superscedes the "If you are not in the brig," requirement and therefore switches his restriction: He is only able to use the second half while in the Brig.
We've got some time before the game will begin, so hopefully we can sort it out.
