      ...Corporate Connections card type is 'undefined.'...

      And when I earlier suggested that CC has "no type" in starting hand terms
      the only responses were, "No". Hence the confusion.

        Well, ok, there are a couple useful Contingencies for your opening hand, but
        it seems unlikely that they would include a funny line on a card just so you
        could use extra Contingincies in your opening hand. If you really wanted the
        And So It Begins in your opening hand, you could always have used Rapid
        Growth or Airlock Mishap (such that it wasn't really necessary to include the
        CC verbology just to allow a CC and a second Contingiency in your opening
        hand).

        Anyways, the point is that it is rather clear that the purpose behind the
        mystery line on CC is so you can have up to three of them in your opening
        hand.

        (Which is useful, should you be so inclined. Start with, say, 4 Card
        Sheridan, a Human Agent or something, and 3 CC:

        T1 make pal
        T2 promote pal
        T3 play 2 CC, build to 8
        T4 play CC, build to 10 ('cause you are at 8 when you use the last CC...).
        You now have 10 total influence, 7 unspent influence, 2 guys in your inner
        circle, and a guy to use to sponsor something else. Might be a useful start
        with, say, a Crusade deck full of characters or something. But then it also
        isn't really much more efficient than the old G'Kar/Build
        Infrastructure/Ko'Dath opening...)
