  • Guessing and hoping for when these crew turn up has been a fun thread. Is it bad that I want another leak / preview of 10 more new crew!!
  • It's possible that we could see most of these during a Picard mega event next month (or the preview thereof). But I would prefer a Picard mega in February while the show is running. Or even afterward, but they'll probably be ramping up for Discovery by then.

    Why limit ourselves? Picard mega leading up to the Picard show. Picard mega during the Picard show. Does this have to be an either/or proposition? I prefer the magic of the &.

    Is it too much? Should they save some for the lull later in the year? Or will there be enough to go around? But maybe back-to-back Picard megas wouldn't be the worst thing.... As long as the older series get sprinkled in there, it could be pretty sweet. Definitely worth consideration, given Picard's popularity.

    The second one could be a Picard-show mega, rather than a Picard mega, perhaps? Sort of like the first Disco mega, you'd have to have a couple versions of Picard just like we had a couple versions of Burnham? Am I remembering that right?

    I think that's before my time. I started after S1. But that's an interesting idea... A TNG (plus Seven) mega full of old characters who will be in the new show. Then a Picard series mega for the next one.

    The first Discovery Mega also had issues with DB needing to wait until characters are introduced to announce them in the game. I suspect one of the reasons we got Tkuvma as the mega character that first event is he was announced as the big Klingon trying to unite the houses before the first episode aired.

    I don't think DB is going to do that. You're talking about the company that never added a Burnham as event legendary reward because there's a bit of cash to grab. They're never going to stuff our rosters with quality event legendaries if they can avoid it.

    Yeah, all megas without exception were full of crappy cards, lol.

    Nice straw man argument.

    No, says the person using numbers to back up his claims. It's abundantly clear that DB does not like giving crew with high event potential as mega event reward. Out of 15 megas, only 3 had main cast as rewards. Now if you want to call that being a contrarian because you prefer drama over discussing potential future mega event crew we can do that and keep thjis fascinating discussion about myself going. ;)

    That's a bit unfair. Minuet is a terrible card, I'll grant you. T'Kuvma, too. A few haven't aged well, like Kortar. Some, like Kol of House Kor, were underwhelming from Day 1. Tennavik is strong today, but he may not age well.

    But I would argue a majority have been excellent:
    • Borg Queen -- An iconic villain. 2.5 years after her introduction, has the 5th highest combined average command score. At the time of her introduction, most of the player base could only dream of having a legendary card at 4/5 since there was no "honor" back then.
    • Mirror Picard -- a version of the most beloved captain on Star Trek, and still a strong Voyager and Gauntleteer.
    • Prisoner Katrina Cornwell -- appeared multiple times as a guest star on Disco (so not just a one-off random character). A strong Voyager and Shuttler for both MED and DIP.
    • Surak -- the most famous Vulcan in their planet's history who appeared as a character in TOS and ENT. A strong Voyager and Gauntleteer.
    • Bell Riots Bashir -- a weaker version of Cornwell stats-wise, but at least this one was main cast, so usable in more events. At the time, a lot more of the player base were in desperate need of strong MED crew, too.
    • Ahdar Ru'afo -- not-so-iconic villain, but played by a well-known actor. A year after his introduction to the game still has the highest base score for ENG.
    • Determined Janeway -- iconic version of an iconic captain. Excellent stats. Strong Voyager and Shuttler.
    • Q as "God" -- another iconic villain (or at least adversary). Excellent stats. Strong Voyager and Shuttler.

    I never said the cards were bad, I merely said DB doesn't like giving crew with high event potential as mega event rewards. I agree with what you said, some of them are excellent, they're merely hovering around 0-4 events not counting the mega they're from, except the 3 main cast cards I mentioned. Is this a big misunderstanding or do you genuinely think all these cards are going to have as many events as Dax or Burnham going forward?

    I simply said there would likely be no Picard or TNG themed mega prior to the release of the series because DB simply doesn't hand out main cast as the mega card like that and that DB's recent history (eg not adding any golden Burnham as event reward) indicates that they're even less likely than ever to give cards with a massive future event potential.

    I'm not denying that these crew are strong, they are, in some areas, but event potential isn't one of them, except the 3 guys I talked about: Mirror Picard, Determined Janeway and Bell Riots Bashir. Now I'd be happy to be proven wrong but anyone expecting a Picard close to the release of his new show is building his own disappointment IMO. Statistically, there's an 80% chance the first reaction to the next mega crew announcement is going to be "who?", that doesn't mean it's going to be a dud, it just means it''s likely going to be an obscure character that will never be event crew again once the mega is over.

    There are 11 new 5, 4 and 3 star crew in the cryo chamber, and no posts about them yet. 3 of these crew are Picards so I truly hope to never hear another word about Janeway. I wonder if they are hidden, in the portal, or what. I can’t recall ever having so many drop at once, of varied rarity.

    5*
    No Regret Picard
    Four Lights Picard

    Day before the first Event of the Picard Mega gets posted, with 24 hour countdown, still missing:

    Four Lights Picard
    No Rugrats Picard
    Naussicaan Thug

    Ensign Picard in a merge is going overboard, that card is stupidly rare. I guess I better start saving up voyage tokens. Sigh.

    Cadet Picard has been mentioned now in the Mega announcement. If it is a Fusion Crew, might be that Picard and the Naussicaan.

    Figures, I have voyaged my way to a second level 99 copy of Ensign at 2/4 lol. We’ll see, he isn’t the worst card to have two of.

    Nothing personal, Scott, but I hope you’re wrong about the fusion thing. However, if you’re right, then I hope the fusion is this:

    3* Picard at El-Adrel + 4* Nausicaan Thug
    —> 5* (“Cadet”) No Regret Picard

    If the supposed fusion involves the 5* Four Lights Picard, though, some players will howl. Just my 2¢. 🖖

    Now that we've seen artwork for Cadet Picard from Nemesis, it's entirely possible that will be the Picard to merge with the Nausicaan.

    We know nothing about Tom Hardy and the set. There is no way DB is leaking details from an episode that hasn't aired yet.
  • Now that we've seen artwork for Cadet Picard from Nemesis, it's entirely possible that will be the Picard to merge with the Nausicaan.

    I imagine that’s probably the way they would go if that were to be a merge card, but I have to say it would be a somewhat poor, inaccurate choice. Sure, I’m being nitpicky here because that would be Cadet Picard from Nemesis and NOT Cadet Picard from Tapestry; you know, young Picard in the magic Q flashback WITH HAIR. Not that DB or Star Trek for that matter is ever really one for solid continuity, but it’s worth mentioning.

    Personally I'd rather that any merge character was good and useable, that means being a 5*. 4*s are for the most part now a massive waste of time and resources except for their collection value. This is a direct result of the mega schedule, campaigns, honor and the enormous amount of citations injected into the game in the last few months. Most players (but I accept, not all players) must now be in a position that only a handful of 4*s get regular use.

    Even being a Legendary does not guarantee use anymore because there are so many relatively poor ones. My desire for a merge character is that they be top of their class in an important aspect of the game, Voyages being for many the most important area. I am happy to merge two crappy legendaries into a good one if it comes to that, but Cheesecake Seven was a great compromise.

    What I definitely don't want is to have to merge blues into purples, that there is just an absolute waste now.

    Except for the fact that Tom Hardy Cadet Picard HAS been seen in an episode that apparently HAS aired . I sincerely hope that DB would not waste staff time creating artwork for a character that is not coming to the game. It's not like there are no issues with the game they could be working on instead........

    Well they did make artwork for a certain Captain Archer that's never been used so... That isn't a certainty unfortunately.

    NOPE. The picture being shared is from Nemesis. Nothing to do with the new series. DB may be bringing that picture to the game as a character. But that tells you NOTHING about any character appearance in Picard.
