Rule hint for this card

This card has an clarification:

When this objective allows a download of personnel and ships in response to battle, it is to a specific destination (“download there”) and thus the cards may report anywhere at the location (e.g., personnel may report aboard ships), ignoring quadrants. However, a SECURITY personnel downloaded with the objective’s final function must be reported to a facility or other place where that personnel may normally report, because no destination is specified. See downloading.

If a facility or site provides the place for the downloaded SECURITY personnel to report, both the personnel and facility must be in their native quadrant. You may not download cards with this objective when your opponent attacks your Non-Aligned ship at your homeworld, even if there are crew members aboard matching the homeworld’s affiliation. The specific card that is attacked (the ship) must match the homeworld and its universe (see mirror universe).

The “compatible ships, leaders, (and) SECURITY personnel” that you may download with this objective when your card is attacked at a homeworld must be compatible with the card that was attacked (and with each other, if they are mixing).

An attack by a Borg Ship dilemma or Rogue Borg Mercenaries, which are self-controlled, will not allow the download. Your opponent must attack your card with his ships or personnel.
