The highs and lows of merit pulls

Did a merit pull, looking for the usual 150 or so honor. And then a GOLD border showed up!! B) A handful of milliseconds later, I realized who it was. :'( The same card I immortalized about a week ago via the campaign.

In my head, all I heard was Charlton Heston yelling "[Darn] you RNG! [Darn] you to [heck]!"

    She is good enough to start a second copy all on her own. 🙂

    I had immortalized her before she was ever put into the campaign. At first I was really annoyed. But now, at 4/5, she's my second best diplomacy shuttler -- right behind her immortalized self.

    Having the Gold Border show up means nothing, during the pull. 1* can pop up, and the Gold Border shows at first........
    Remember that time Scott vented on the Forums?!?!?

    I didn't have her originally but I was happy to add her to my crew. I had Picard immortalized though like most of the players in the previous campaign. I did the campaign with the intention of citing him and was happy as my 5th star showed up in a behold at the end of the campaign. Haven't regretted that campaign at all as duplicates of good cards are worth collecting in many cases, especially with this one. I would love the behold the OP had above. A 1/5 for shuttles and the 5/5 for voyages.

    When you finally get a legendary, and then you realize you have her FF... 😭

    Second time this has happened to me, too

    I just got Commodore April in a pull. I seem to get only terrible legendaries in merit pulls; other notables are Captain Lorca, Joesph Sisko, and War Reporter Jake Sisko.

    Well, It IS a Purple I do not have.

    But, plenty of posts about how hard it is Leveling Cyrus Roadblock.

    He was quite unpleasant to level back then. Now? I wonder how the various new missions and things help ease the pain...then again, I’m not so curious as to level another one if he dropped for me again. :)

    I have a feeling that for right now, he will get to float when my Voyage gets back and the 3*/2*/1* Crew they found go floating.......

    He's rough ... but if you have the space, keep him hanging around for the time being at lvl 1 ... he's required in a vanity collection (The Big Goobye).

    Here is a rarity! Sometimes 1 purple, but never 2!

    Merit Rewards is just an honor machine at this point...

  • Never seen purple but I’m level 32 so maybe one day been saving merit for gauntlet refresh for the future
