    sweet I'll be able to finish fusing Dolim, and this will help level up my Xindi Patrol ship.

    Skirmishes are my favorite event type. Amanda Rogers and Data Q are two that I most look forward to. No new ship is a bummer, but overall... I'm a happy camper. :)

    I'll run out of chronitons, I'm sure. I wonder if this will affect how many people go for broke in this current week's event.

    Well we knew even before the start of the Mega that Skirmishes would be in week 2. So if i had to choose between burning my entire chrons on the galaxy before, or doing it on the skirmishes, where you get some great loot and chrons on top, my vote would have been easy. But thats just me.

    If Q2's wiki page is correct, we have 12, 12, and 10 second initialize bonus crew so far. Would be nice if Data Q was usable faster.

    Didn't we just have Dolim in another event?

    *Noting that Data Q does not count as a Data variant*. (Not that it is important in a Skirmish event) but good to know in the future...

    Do we know for sure that Data Q won't count as a Data variant in the future?

    You would think Afterlife Q and Q2 would have instant activations...not 12 seconds.
    That's eternity for a Q

    This. The only reason to burn hard in this week’s event is if you really like Q2 either by himself or as help for the last two events of the month.

    A bit disappointed to see another existing 5* ship, although this is the only one I don't have enough schematics to have built.

    Ummm no. Dolim has never been event crew.

    If he counted as a Data, then variants of Data should provide a bonus. For that reason, I wish he were named Android Q. I assume he's an android, anyway.

    Aw, man. The card I most wanted in the most grindy event. Hope the packs generous to me when she comes around.
  • So much tapping incoming.
  • Travis S McClainTravis S McClain ✭✭✭✭✭
    Second favorite event type? Check.
    New crew member I want most out of this whole mega? Check.
    Chance to FF an existing 4* who will level me up in a Collection? Check.

    Yeah, I'm in. I have stuff planned for Friday and Saturday, but should be able to squeeze in enough laying time to hang in there.

    Ooh! This would be a great time to introduce a 3* Data. Otherwise, the only existing 3* variant of any of the Featured Crew is Florist Q. (Yawn.)

    I think it would have been announced. Pretty sure injured Torres was. But... How about a new 2* version of Q2?

    Will be an exiting event, even though i am not even close to the position of getting Amanda Rogers. I am fine with Qata and the second star on Qod. Also looking forward to the post mega packs, maybe a lucky draw.

    Huh. Thanks. Not sure why I though that. Maybe I'm just thinking weird overly-made-up alien with weak set of only SEC-CMD combo . . . like Gorn Captain.

    Isn’t that the current admiral division arena reward?
  • ByloBandByloBand ✭✭✭✭✭
    Oh. My. (Q as) "God".

    A crew I've wanted for a long time being offered as the ranked reward of a mega event in the event type I enjoy the best?!?! I am making 100% of my chroniton reserves available for next weekend!
  • DavideBooksDavideBooks ✭✭✭✭✭
    Wait. Both God Q and Dolim have abilities that require positions status, but the Xindi Patrol ship does not grant Position Status. I'm sure there are many that don't use the event ship, me being one, but you've made it the worst choice. Well thought out.

    What triggers positions? I'm afraid I don't pay enough attention to ship abilities.
