Alien Quarter Market

Alien Quarter Market does not specify a non-human :crew you control. Does that mean you can :exert one of your opponent's non-human :crew's, or is this implied?

:ready a Non-Human :crew is a cost as it comes immediately before the colon (rulebook, page 4). You can only pay costs with cards you control (pages 2 and 4).

To a certain extent though, costs are one area we're going to look to clarify/improve in the rulebook, as a few concepts are either assumed the player base will know, or could be explained better.

One instance of the former is that costs are also self-referential. Take Liach, T'zen and Giiar for instance. Her ability is:

:reaction - Jettison: Change the target of an :event or cancel an :event.

We don't actually say anywhere that "Jettison" refers to the card itself. The self-referential default in absence of other identified cards is a common practice, but not one we should have assumed our player base would know.

Alien Quarter Market falls under this as well. It's costs are:

:exert, :exert non-Human :crew:

So the first :exert requires you to :exert Alien Quarter Market.
