So, I just realized my group may accidentally have an infinite supply of Momentum/Determination (at least under some circumstances).
See, the Captain is a Human Veteran, with the Veteran Talent and Spirit of Discovery. We now also have a dedicated Executive Officer (whose stats are not relevant beyond his existence).
So...the Captain can spend 1 Determination to add 3 Momentum. He then gets the Determination back 1/3 of the time. If he doesn't, the XO spends 3 Momentum to give it back to him. He repeats this process until he gets 3 Momentum free of charge. Then he does it all again to total 6 Momentum in the pool. This may require 3 Momentum (or +3 Threat to the GM) to jump start depending on whether the Momentum gained by Spirit of Discovery can be immediately used to regain the Determination, but that's a pretty easy bar to hit.
That's also as much Momentum as anyone can accumulate...but he can then do the same to give everyone on the ship bunches of bonus Determination (fueled by the infinite Momentum thing).
I'm not sure this is actually a problem, as he can only pull it off when a Value applies since Spirit of Discovery requires the same justification as most other Determination spends (though the Commanding Officer thing to give others Determination does not), and it thus only happens when the Captain is properly motivated...but it remains an infinite resource combination under those circumstances. Unless I'm missing something.
