I presume you still have to focus the TST to strike with it outside an engagement?

That's right, so tactics will affect him just like it would against any participating unit.

Along with the game mechanic that allows you to discard a card, before drawing up to 6 this lets you basically do the same thing without giving information about your hand to your opponent. Also, like Majestaat said, It lets you get to your better cards faster without needing to be able to empty your hand each turn.

It's not a forced reaction, so you can choose not to use it if you like every card in your hand. Nevertheless, the objective is always strong to cycle through your deck faster to get those cards you really want to see.

I take it this objective is rated so highly purely because of the other cards contained in the set? Because the negative reaction makes this the first objective I've encountered that I wouldn't want to have in play if I could help it.

Nope, actions will be clear when focussing a unit (or something) is part of the cost.

Do I have to focus the droid to use the ability (sorry, newbie :-)) ?

Don't forget that the refresh phase happens in specific steps.  You remove a focus token from each unit, objective, and enhancement, then you remove all shield tokens (Droid could react here), then you replace destroyed objectives.

I think this effectively kills twist of fate. Interesting. It would seem not to matter much but still a great effect.

It does, and while it only lasts while undamaged, the decks that play Twist the most don't usually want to attack. Forcing them to do so can be a big help to get a clear strike.

1st unit is any unit. Correct? And 2nd unit obviously is cost 2 or lower, probably for good reason. Paying for this card with a unit-resource and then moving it to a target card is so satisfying.

Correct, making it great to refresh one of your big units and exhaust an enemy weenie in the process.

  That is true I didn't even think about that. So if a card says put a focus token on it to do some effect, you would be able to do that when it's exhausted, but because this card reads "focus this unit", you cannot because he is exhausted and that specifically prevents the act of focusing. 

 

 

  I would also think that because of what it says under 'Reactions', that if you were to un-focus him he would not be able to move another shield during refresh since the refresh shields step occurs and then is over, regardless of how slowly someone takes tokens off cards. However, if later on someone causes them to remove a shield (IE Tie Scout), then it should be no problem to do a second one at that point. I think.

I think that the reason why you can't use this guy more than once per turn is because exhausted cards cannot be focused to activate abilities.

 

According to rulebook:

A card that is exhausted (i.e. has one or more focus 
tokens on it) cannot be focused to pay for card effects, 
cannot focus to strike, and cannot generate resources.
 
However if you somehow manage to remove a focus from him you should be able to activate his ability twice.

Question from a friend. If you have a bunch of shields, and presumably enough units out, can you load this guy up with multiple focus to shuffle them around? It does not mention a limit once per turn or anything,

 

----Also was thinking it might not, since removing shields is an all at once type thing, so however many ET-74s you have would be able to grab a shield, focus, and replace it at the moment you refresh tokens.

Yep, it can put a shield on any unit or objective that doesn't already have a shield. You'd could even target your opponent's unit or objective if you really wanted (and there are situations where you might want to do that).

Can't see a problem, you're simply putting a shield in play per the card's text, not following the rules from the shielding keyword.

Question: Can you place this shield on ANY unit or objective even if it's not participating in the engagement?

 

There is no "in this engagement" reference here. Obviously, Fate card shielding effect doesn't seem to be restricted per se, but i just wanted to see if there is room for interpretation here. I take it that you can place it to any unit/objective.

 

Rulebook says:

 
Shielding
When a card with the “Shielding” keyword is declared 
as either attacker or defender, its controller may 
immediately place one shield token on any friendly 
unshielded participating unit, or to the engaged objective 
card, if unshielded.

Yes, its text box would be as if it were blank, so the card would essentially say nothing after the word "character".
