    Time to finish levelling my recently acquired 1/5 Gangster Kirk, then to figure out who all needs to be thawed... looking just at 4* and 5* crew, I have 12 active and 17 frozen Picard/Kirk/Kira variants. Yikes!

    All these crew, not a single MED among them.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, I count 42 crew (not including Wrathful Kirk) and 37 are SuperRare or higher?

    I doubt hope med will play a huge small part to the seating - Bashir will be on standby but I won't worry too much about that and avoid those missions if necessary.

    Given the number of bonus crew - and especially the number of 5* bonus crew I have - I’m going to stick with a threshold-and-out approach this week. However, the original plan was to skate through this event with as little participation as possible in phase 2 by way of using some 3* time boosts. That plan is over, to preserve as many as possible for next week.

    Survivalist Kirk is also the only Engineering crew.

    That thought never occurred to me ;)

  • Hmmm, Reno-gate followed by Kirk-gate when he comes out as CMD/SEC......I hope not! :smiley:
    Dear DB: Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.
  • FlemmingFlemming ✭✭✭✭✭
    I just realized I recently FFFEed Gangster Kirk. (And part of me felt immediate relief that I did not have to grind to the final threshold next week)

    If DB really wanted to go all-out on a Tuesday pack, they’d drop a 5* MED/COM/SEC (or maybe MED/COM/SCI) Kirok.

    ...I can’t imagine we’ll be getting a Kirok anytime soon.

    It would be a lot of Kirk all at once. I’d also say the poor way in which that episode aged would further lower the chances, but we have Duelist Yar...and, after checking the mission list on the wiki, there is a surprisingly large number of MED slots (not all of which are OR’d with other skills). Besides, after the tepid response to the crew in the last few weeks of the current mega, running out a desirable character right before a useful event could be financially lucrative - a good start for their Q3 balance sheet.

    I have 3 stars on Anastasia and 2 on Dixon. Should be a cinch to FF them both and nab bonuses from two collections!

    Guess I know my leveling priority for the next few days.

    I think it's important to note that Frederick La Rouque is not a Dukat.

    Actually, it's a fair point. In looking through my bonus crew, six of my top ten have CMD and DIP (although not necessarily as strong as La Rouque, and those aren't necessarily their best traits). Although having him wouldn't hurt, I'm not sure it would give me THAT much of an edge. And I would be able to save those resources for a character who would actually add something to my crew or that I love (aka Wrathful Kirk lol).
