    Will be interesting to see Dr. Pollard's stats. She is the CMO, commanding the medical staff, including Culber, no? If so, perhaps command should be her secondary skill? Please, DB??

    Soooo I just watched that episode of TAS on Sunday and was thinking he would make an interesting card - curious to see how he'll look in-game.

    And YASSSSS for Pollard!

    Awesome!!! Aleek-Om is from TAS and is the closest I am going to get to having an Avian Xindi so I am going to pretend that is what he is.

    And Dr. Pollard is funny with her acerbic wit on Discovery. Yikes though, now we are going to have to hear the whingeing on of the haters who claim to like star trek but hate a huge swath of it.

    Still going to be a great event though. Thanks DB!

    Both those are awesome crew additions. I like the animated series characters. And I have been we need Pollard for a while. She is a cool character.
    Remember that time Scott vented on the Forums?!?!?

    On the positive side, that bird is so alien it could have any combination of skills...and SCI ;)

    He was my favourite Sesame Street character growing up.

    SCI: Historian Researcher
    ENG: He was voiced by James Doohan
    DIP: Cause he's a bird

    do we think that ENG is enough to make him (? it?) a jury rigger? :#

    Can we get some more characters from TAS?
    Character wishlist:
    • Lieutenant M'Ress
    • Amanda Rogers
    • Sarah MacDougal
    • Mirasta Yale
    • Agmar
  • Dirk GundersonDirk Gunderson ✭✭✭✭✭
    Some TAS love? Hooray!

    Pollard isn’t my first choice for a new doctor (paging Dr. M’Benga to the lobby) but if she ends up being MED/COM she will be worth going for.

    I'm personally not a fan of TAS, but hope to see Dr. Pollard get more screen time in Discovery season 3. I'll probably go threshold-and-out, unless the following event is a straight faction where I'd be buying event packs.

    I might join you, unless Dr. Pollard has good stats. My hopes are MED/CMD/SCI.

    Can’t argue with that.

    Acerbic wit? I honestly can’t remember her saying a single word. Also don’t remember her name being mentioned once. Also also, I wouldn’t call Discovery a “huge swath” or Star Trek

    Many of the "Disco haters" hate the JJ movies and TAS as well. They also will likely all hate the new Picard series and claim it also is not canon and why can't Picard be more like he was in TNG? It gets tiresome especially when the complaints are the exact same every time in every post. A few players that insist on being wet blankets and trying to take the enjoyment from everyone else. Dr. Pollard is great in the second season of Discovery and has some funny lines when people are injured in the sick bay and talking with people who have visited them.

    I’ll have to take your word for it. I don’t remember her ever saying anything, and I’m not rewatching to find out.
  • I'm just glad that Commander Uhura is in this one. Can finally FF my 3* copy!

    Well, according to Memory Alpha, Dr. Pollard is a Lieutenant (junior grade), so an inferior officer to Culber who is a Lieutenant Commander. Still, my recollection was of her telling Culber what to do when he was recovering. Maybe that's because he wasn't back on duty yet and still a patient? Either way, I still hope she has some command skill.

    I do like popcorn. But let's kick it up a notch to kettle corn.
