Captain Archer From Beta Returns! (Sort of)

aovfwwja719f.png

I thought when I saw this and the new packs (which weren't initially showing up with art) that maybe DB was being exceptionally cute with the timing, but he's not even in the vault or avatars list - and we've already had one Archer who was in the vault (COP Founder Archer) disappear entirely.

I hope this means we're getting this new Captain Archer as a reward crew some time during this mega-event!

  • This Captain Archer art also exists in Episode 6, Mission 2: Ancient Guardians. Probably they're just re-using art of someone else "from that era" because "story."

    That said, I'd really like if he were in this mega-event. We need a proper "Captain" Archer the way we have a Captain Janeway, Captain Sisko, and Captain Kirk.

  • I saw that Archer too and I got quite excited. I've been looking forward to another Archer

    I know it isn't the only re-use of the art, but it coinciding with a "mavericks" pack got my hopes up... even if Maverick would probably apply more to the younger Archer from First Flight.

    I'm guessing this will be a 2* Archer and Archer will be one of the event crew. Hmm...I wonder if each week will be a different Captain?

    we already have 1 2* Archer i suspect this Archer will be a 4* and if he is next event Away Team Archer(2*) will be threshold

    Please, DB. Give us this Captain Archer. He deserves a proper Captain character.
  • I had the same reaction. Hope this is a 4* version someday, would go along with 4*T'Pol.

    Though the artwork looks more like Luke Wilson than Bakula...
  • Yes to more Archer!

    Even if I now can't stop seeing Luke Wolsingham, dammit xD
  • Someone at DB really hates Archer. First we have to blow him up in episode 6 and then he goes “missing” to justify a non-canon COP Founder Picard.

    It’s really past time for him to join the crew.

    He could be introduced as a 3* in the ranked rewards, like Talos IV Spock was a few weeks back.

    I cannot see them making Captain Archer a 3*. A 5* maybe, but a 4* would make the most sense.
    There are three ways to do something; the right way, the wrong way, and the Janeway.

    I'm just thinking in terms of game mechanics - there needs to be a 3* for the rewards table, it'd be a neat way to use the existing art without getting anyone annoyed at a 'new' 4*/5* using art that's been sitting around in the game for ages already. Not the most prestigious use for a Captain, but there's already a bunch of crew where their rarity and rank don't line up (including 2* Archer himself), what's one more?

    It'd be nice if one of the events this month has a new Archer. Ideally, we'd get this guy as a 3* "Captain Archer", and then a new 4* Archer as a Ranked or Threshold reward.

    I'd really like to add an Archer to my crew, but I dislike the existing 2* Archer and his voice lines, and my preferred Archer (Mirror Archer) doesn't seem to want to be pulled. :(

  • I hate looking at Mirror Archer. His distorted artwork needs to be fixed desperately. (He is stretched out tall and skinny in case you haven’t seen him.)

    I have a fondness for Away Team Archer since I was the first to max him way back when. The only character I will ever have the chance to do that with.

    I've only seen him a few times from seeing other people's bridge crew or the gauntlet. Disappointing if his artwork is screwed up...

    This is very old image of Archer, but not released crewmember yet (as was Tomalak once)
    Leader of the Czechoslovak Fleet (Starbase level 112). We are recruiting!

    The shot selected to make the Mirror Archer illustration from is one featuring Archer gesticulating grandiosely (and in the show, also kind of doing a Captain Morgan).

    Perhaps they could have chosen a different pose (maybe from when he's giving his big speech), but instead they've sort of asymmetrically squished him.

    As seen on-screen:

    My main bugbear with the Mirror Archer illustration is that he's got regular Archer's hair from S3/S4, rather than the crewcut Mirror Archer actually has.

    There isn't a "Captain Picard!" (I'm kidding, Enterprise-D Picard would probably the be the "Captain" version).

    But we really need an Archer event with a proper Captain Archer base form.

    The rarity of the existing Captain personae:

    5* Captain Sisko
    4* Captain Janeway
    3* none
    2* Captain Kirk
    1* none

    Given what we have perceived as a disinterest in Archer on the part of whoever makes character selection choices, I would posit it seems making Captain Archer a 1* would make the most sense. (To complete the set, we would get a 3* Captain Lorca.)

    I’m guessing the event crew will be a different ship captain each week of the event. Janeway, Archer, Kirk and Picard.

    We've been watching Enterprise (my wife's first time watching it) and I really don't get the Archer hate. She actually avoided the show because she didn't like Scott Bakula, but I guess he's growing on her because she likes Archer now.

    I too would like to see Mirror Archer's artwork fixed, and have a proper Captain Archer.

    Here's a quick edit I did to Mirror Archer. Looks way better to me.

    Mirror Archer is one of the most annoying ones, only popped him out of the freezer to expand my CMD options for covering shuttles and voyages.

    It's the pose, I know its meant to look grandiose, but all it achieves is making look a bit of a buffoon.
  • I just went back and took a look at my Mirror Archer and sheesh, yes, DB really needs to fix that, but that’s not the only portrait problems they’ve been having lately. The Borg Queen and Arex also recently got all fuzzy, like they’re out of focus within their portraits, though it’s most obvious if they’re used as a user pic. DB seems to be having a run of graphic difficulties lately.
    Weirdly enough, I’m also Vulcan Housewife. Also, RNGesus hates me, like really, REALLY hates me.
  • Here they are, where I used the Orion guy as a comparison so you can see the difference.
