Don't really care if this makes me look scummy but I'm not sure I believe his story... and even if it's true, what use is he to the crew? He can't shoot tonight and he'll likely be targeted by the AQ before he gets his power back. The only real hope of a use is if there is a watcher role to protect him (no, I'm not asking for a claim).
On the other hand, if he is the AQ, we don't have an immediate way to test his security officer claim since he's impotent and can't get a shot off tonight. We'd have to wait at least two nights without help from another power role and by then it'll be too late. Assuming there is a psychic, they could test him tonight... but I'm not sure that's much better than us just lynching mitch and testing someone else since it's highly questionable he'd ever get to shoot.
Normally, I'd be 1st to back off a D1 cop claim but I'm not so eager to do so here. Anyway, let's talk this out but I'm not at all ready to unvote mitch.
He can shoot tonight, because I did in the previous game unless there is some new unspecified rule that I skimmed over (my bad if I did). If he get's converted, we'll know because he didn't shoot, so that literally eliminates one person, guaranteed, into the next day. Worst case scenario, he is actually AQ, converts, and it becomes a guessing game afterwards. Thus far no one is countering the claim either, so I'm going to assume that he's telling a partial truth. It's a big giant WIFOM that I'm seeing. We can either eliminate Mitch, hope he's AQ, win, or lose a crucial power role. More than happy to discuss this further since the deadline isn't until (tomorrow)?

Of course, with Mitchs claim and his earlier outburst I admit I may have been too lenient. The claim seems a bit bogus. At the very least, he seems to be claiming something different than what the security officer was last game. Would be interested in hearing from you DDS, you were in favor of the game being set up the same as one of the options from last time, why doesn't his claim strike you as more suspicious?
I'll also note that the alien game was the only other time I can remember Mitch appearing upset, he usually laughs things off.
unvote vote Mitch
You certainly did make a U-turn on this after he revealed.
I gave us those four setting's as a foundation of what this game COULD be. If it is, there's a %50 (sorry, math), that he's actually a security officer, and there may even be a psychic present. Maybe I'm the only one that can appreciate the significance behind a S/O because of it's NK ability. If Mitch guesses (or us), guess correctly, he can shoot the AQ during a conversion on himself or someone else. Remember, however, that benga did state previously that the conversion would still happen despite the AQ being shot.
All that aside, I do agree that Mitches scum tells are in line with the previous Alien game.
