  • I think I'd star up Benny.

    For what it’s worth, none of the three are considered to be voyage powerhouses (Benny is #131, Miranda is #103, and Frasier is #118) or are terribly helpful in the gauntlet (Benny has limited usefulness, the others have none). If you don’t have a strong preference for a particular character, gauging how they would help improve voyage duration and shuttle success rates would be the best evaluation tool - and one that depends on who you already have in your crew.

    If you’re relatively weak on SCI/DIP or DIP/SCI voyages (or DIP voyages in general), Dr. Jones at 1/5* is better than a 2/5* Benny Russell for shuttles and roughly equivalent for voyages. Captain Bateson even at 3/5* is relatively weak and only becomes decent at 5/5* (and even then there are many better COM/SEC options out there), so I would only recommend putting more stars on him if you’re really in need of one day maybe improving your COM/SEC voyage times.

    If it were me looking at these three exact options and fusion levels, I would definitely take Miranda. Benny is a great character from a great episode but TOS has a special place in my heart and the incremental increase in DIP/SCI voyage lengths is larger by adding a 1/5* Miranda to your crew than it would be to go from 1 to 2 stars on Benny.

    I have Benny at 1 star. I would absolutely add a star. I find him useful and as a Sisko, he is an event crew.

    I'd star Benny I actually still use him on voyages quite a bit at 1/5, he has good base so is useful for Sisko events.

    Benny is where I went. I also got a 3rd star for him with another begold after this. Thanks for the help. But I was still torn especially with Dirk's comments but in the end getting him to 3 stars was a nice bonus.

    I'd probably go Benny, you can never have too much of The Sisko

    you made the right choice. Miranda would have almost no event utility while there are lots of them for sisko (and one happening next week too!)

    A SCI Sisko is a valuable commodity in Sisko faction events. :-)
    Accepted. Mark them, Galt.
