Event Name: First Impressions
Event Type: Hybrid Event Faction (Augments - Federation) /Galaxy
Event Crew: Captain Lorca 5* (New), Reinforcements Stamets 4*(New), Marla McGivers 4* (Existing)
Event Dates: Thursday 10/12 until Monday 10/16

Bonus crew: The featured event crew + T'Kuvma will provide the best bonuses, but all versions of event crew + non featured Discovery crew and Augments crew will provide some.

I cannot guarantee at all that I will be able to provide this every time, but for this event, here is the list of crew who should provide a lower bonus:

Non-featured DSC crew
Desert Philippa Georgiou
Lieutenant Commander Saru
First Officer Saru
First Officer Burnham

Augments
Alternate Future Bashir
Mirror Bashir
Racquetball Bashir
CMO Bashir
Bashir, Julian Bashir
RAF Julian Bashir
Joachim
Wrathful Khan
Young Khan
Persis
Augment Picard
Augment Riker

    Thanks for posting what info you can.

    Not really looking forward to two Faction/Galaxy hybrids in a row.

    While i appreciate the announcement i find it pretty lame and boring to have the same event type 2 weeks in a row.

    At least it isn't Faction only

    Thanks for information
  • Well, needing to run Augments shuttles might eventual get me the 12 bajillion Science Experiments needed for the new Janeway and Saru, so once this event's over I guess I know what I'm running.
  • Waiting on CBS is like waiting on your kids to clean their rooms.
  • On one hand, yay science experiments!

    On the other hand...can't we get an expedition event already? :P

    I'm looking at that being a definite plus. I'm glad for the fair enough warning so I can get working on leveling a couple augments that I don't have FE.
  • I wonder if this means the augments are going to make an appearance in Discovery...

    Another galaxy? That's extremely disappointing for the player base.

    I would've agreed a few weeks ago - but with all the chrons from voyages (and the gazillions of items we'll all have due to said chrons and the fact we don't have to use items in the replicator anymore) should make galaxy easier...
  • So...augments are rather science-y/medical-y.

    Will we actually get a good SCI/MED event crew?

    It's relative. I think it will increase the scores, but will it make people who don't play galaxies do so just because they have more chrons? Personally, I'll continue to use my chrons on crew rather than galaxies just like before.

    +1

    This first event is pretty harsh. Having trouble not failing 85% + missions at 1800 vp. If I don't do well enough in this event to get the recurring 5* in the faction portion, I'll have lost all interest in participating in the rest of the Mega event.

    No, it will make Galaxy events more competitive.
    "Dance with me. For science."
  • Faction/galaxy combo is good, easy to get a 4/4 without spending dilithium or wasting too much in the galaxy part. Just hoping for an underpar 5* here...
  • Well, needing to run Augments shuttles might eventual get me the 12 bajillion Science Experiments needed for the new Janeway and Saru, so once this event's over I guess I know what I'm running.

    Agreed. I did 4 x Warp 10 "Rockslide" (12 Chron Space Battle). So out of 40 missions I got 3 Science Experiments.

    Just, ugh.

  • It's a shame you aren't at least able to confirm the identity of the none Discovery crew.

    Kind of vague. Augment crew?

    Really?? That's a lot of characters. Does not seem right.
  • UnkieBUnkieB ✭✭✭
    It's a heck of a lot less than when they do all Klingon's or all Starfleet Captains, etc.

  • I always do best on expeditions and yet they're the rarest ones. :( I always do the worst w/ factions but at least this one's another hybrid I guess lol

    There are three ways to do something; the right way, the wrong way, and the Janeway.

    The OP has been edited since it was first posted. Assuming it was done by request/directive I will just say that the initial post indicated that DB is waiting on external forces.

    So what are the odds the following week will be expedition? We haven't seen one of those in a long time.

    I'd guess about 50/50 pure faction vs faction/expedition hybrid.

    Augments shuttles won't help you. They don't drop basic science experiments or the 1* counterparts. Only the 2* variety. You still have to farm the ones you actually need from cadet missions or wasting chrons.

    I'm fond of galaxies myself - community awards ftw ... and faction/galaxy hybrids are arguably the best of both worlds.Also DB have given us a faction that has some decent gear.

    Not understanding your reference. Perhaps you quoted the wrong post. I never mentioned shuttles or augments.
