Jury-Rigger-Collection finally finished, what next?

The important(?) collections are finished, at last.
I have now to decide what to focus next as there is no major collection left.
Best choice would be the Gauntlet Crew, but my Caretaker is only 1/5 and in the other collections there are some purple crew, 2/5 or 3/5 that would be more easy to finish.

Hmm, any suggestions?

    I have the crew necessary to finish the jury-rigger collection, but lack 2 stars on one of the purple crew. I have decided that any other collection that comes to be completed naturally is good. However, I will not go out of my way for any if them. Instead, focus on your best voyage crew.

    I'd endorse Sherwood Forest as well (partly because it's one of my targets right now), but I think the more amusing aspect is that every collection in your screenshot is in German except Sherwood Forest. Could they not translate it?
  • I lean toward Holodeck Enthusiasts. You get a legendary Janeway from that one. I'm closing in on Jury Riggers and have my eye on the Holodeck next.

    I assume that is because in English, 'Sherwood Forest' is a proper noun that actually exists, the actual name of something in the world. It would be described as 'Sherwood Forest' in any language.
    The rest of the collections, i.e The Big Goodbye, are just nouns and adjectives that can be translated.

    It appears that all your collections require 1 more immortal to reach the next milestone, not necessarily finish the collection. My advice would be to decide if the milestone reward is worth the cost in citations, and chrons/items build if not all lvl 100.
    If you have excess honor, and 1 collection that requires 1 purple 4* cite it may be worth it for you. But of course this entirely depends on your stockpile of currencies vs. the reward.
    The milestone rewards are not worth the honor cost for gold 5* citations (with the exception of holodeck collection when the next reward is janeway. Bcuz you get a 1/5* crew for a 5* cite. That is if you only need 1, 5* cite to complete a crew for the next reward that would be the copy of janeway.
  • Whichever ones offer free 10 pulls as the next reward.

    That sounds kinda reasonable, but when I try to think of other real-life examples, that’s not true. For example, the region that the Germans call “Schwarzwald” is known to English speakers as the “Black Forest”. Some more perusing around the Internet reveals several forests whose names are one thing in English, and another in the native language. At the very least, even if the Forest keeps its proper name, the word “Forest” is translated into English.

    I’m not saying I know the answer or anything. Just raising a few questions. (I might be the only one who finds this interesting...if so, apologies! 😁 )
  • Hmm, i think i will go for the Timelines Originals first because of the free Premium Pull and i have a Mirror Janeway 2/4 there. The other purple guys are Cyrus Redblock 2/4 from The Big Goodbye and Tarquin from the Delphic Expanse but the milestones are quite lame. Every other Collection needs legendary crews.

    Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest are exactly the same in german.
    Why Schwarzwald is translated properly into english but not Autobahn (for example) is still a mystery ;)

  • The nice thing about Katrine is that once you have the first copy, you can always cite her if you become too impatient to wait for the rest of the crew you need to reach those higher milestones. That's if you care about getting her, of course.

    I myself would prioritize finishing The Caretaker for that last 1% bump in SCI proficiency. A lot of players insist Gauntlet jackpot crew drop regularly enough this is a waste of Honor, however. I'd rather not leave it to that much chance for four more copies. It's unlikely for any time in the foreseeable future that he'll be attainable any other way. On top of that, he's handy for voyages. At least, he is in my crew. He may be negligible for yours.
  • The only comment I would make is you wont get the Guantlet crew to drop, until you cite them, then the next day you will get him to drop. Happened to me with Armus.
  • IvanstoneIvanstone ✭✭✭✭✭
    Work on crew that occupy two collections or work on Holodeck Enthusiasts.

    Personally, I don't have anything for the former. The latter I can do work on Odo (yuck) but would rather work on BestRiker or Kim (I don't have either).

    I'll probably work on the Bond Collection next because I have Honey at 2/5, Bashir at 2/5 and Garak at 4/5.

    :D Yeh, there's definately some question marks here, and in language in general. Languages are tricky, and once you think there is a rule to follow, you'll find there's always exceptions that don't follow the same logical pattern, for no rhyme or reason, especially in English!
    English has always, and still does, adopt many words from old Germanic, French and other languages around the world into normal use English, but didn't always follow a rule pattern on usage. Not that that answers why 'forest' wouldn't be translated as per the others. That's just probably an unintentional DB call.
    I am a TEFL teacher, teaching English in Asia, and I've found English is pretty tough to learn as a foreign language; trying to teach the grapheme ea in 'stream' , and then in 'great' for example!
    Languages are cool, but can always be tricky!

    What we need is some form of ….. Universal Translator !! :D

    Anyway, I have been holding off citing any gauntlet crew because as soon as I do, one will drop, and I don't want to feel like I could have put that cite somewhere else! I have had Picard, and Fierce Guinan drop once on a voyage, and that was a very long attempt , not something I do too often for these crew specifically - so I would think about voyage crew once you get one copy.
  • UluruUluru ✭✭✭
    After finishing the important collections, I cite voyage crew.
  • RaraRacingRaraRacing ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'm personally working on Delphic Expanse, as I have 7 of 8 (missing Sphere-builder) for that one and all crew are in portal:
    - Xindi Insectoid (2/5): good voyager
    - Sphere-Builder (0/5): good voyager
    - Degra (4/5): good shuttler
    - Loque'eque Sato (1/5): ... hmmm, yeah, not really but hey, to complete.
    --> not sure which 3 you are missing though ...

    - Sherwood - you don't have other crew options, so scrap that idea.
    - Play Ball - weak 5* crew ... and you have no options
    - Chaotica - same, even though you might have options.
    - Wild West - you have 1 left, but in general not the best crew.
    - Bashir - Weak 5*s after Honey Bare and Falcon.
    - Holodeck - has some decent crew ... but you have no options left ... getting Lucille would be neat though, so pick up those crew in beholds ... one of the better options is not in portal through (Chef Riker) but you'll have to cite some duds to get Lucille 5/5 (unless you cite her).
    - Originals - some good crew for voyages that can be cited (Yar, Assimilated La Forge, Prince Bashir) but plenty of duds (Convergece Day Quark) ... keep in mind that it goes 9 immortal, 11 immortal, 13 immortal and 15 immortal ... so two per tier ... high cost for the rewards.
    - The Big Goodbye - both Gloria and Satin Dress Sloane are good voyagers so this is another good collection for game value ... I'm missing Sloane otherwise I'd have this collection completed.

    --> So, depending a bit on the crew you own I would go for either The Big Goodbye, Delphic Expanse or Originals. You can cite up good crew for the game (e.g. voyages) and boost collections.

    The only weak one in Wild West is Data and he's got unconventional stats. In fact all 4 5*'s for this collection have abnormal stat allocations which make all of them good for events.
    Bashir is himself weak but you may want another MED/SEC/DIP. I know I do. Garak has unconventional stats, traits and decent total skills.

    - I'm guessing the 4th the OP has left is Durango Troi (3x 4*s and a 5* we all got for free) ... who has good base stats but is CMD/DIP/SEC (as is Uhura) and that's probably not the most pressing area for improvement that most players have ... most people don't rate North Star Tucker highly (I did and cited him ... but he's kinda a short term investment).

    - If I needed help in MED for voyages I'd chose good crew to cite rather than crew associated with collections ... same goes for Garak ...

    Hence the advice to cite good voyagers who are part of a collection ... but it is hard to know who those 8 crew (not counting the Caretaker) are that the OP can cite ... be better if they listed all 8 crew ...

    Frank Hollander is a pretty weak crew - at 4/5* he has my 19th-strongest base COM, and that’s behind four three-skill crew at 2-3/5*. Still, he’s the only Data with COM and that is bound to come in handy in Data events.

    sometimes the proper nouns get translated,but in general they dont... dont ask me why...
    i think its also a personal reference...
    and sometimes there are so many translations possible,it would just not make any sense-> "robin hood" for example, there are a lot of possible translations for "hood" depending what you want to say... and i dont call him "robin kapuze" for sure;)

    you dont say "donald ente" in german,its allways been "donald duck" and a brownie allways been a brownie,same with "sherwood forest". i think they are just adopted into the language

    i´ve never heard someone saying "black forest",all english people i spoke with translated it to "schwarzwald" because "it is how the people call it who are living there,and so should we"

    one of the most funny moments i ever had when i try to translate some words into english and a "british gentleman" tryed the same in german... hilarious...but after an asian family joined in very interested,we lost it completlyXD
    but hey,we all came together,had a great time (even tho we got to communicate a lot with our hands),and thats all what matters!

    why you english guys call it "pretzel" instead of "brezel/bretzel"?
    and i know a "b" isn´t even a small hurdle for you;p
    why translate this?

    (i hope it is readable somehow,my english is pretty poor...)

    According to the OED, the English “pretzel” probably comes from English speakers’ hearing the pronunciation of “b” in a southern regional German dialect and thinking it was a “p”.

    oh,yeah, forgot about dialects... this could be it:) thx for this answer
    also depends on the region if you write "brezel" or "Bretzel"

    and after they "translate" asterix&obelix from "german" into saxon dialect,everything is possible:D

  • eXo | das411eXo | das411 ✭✭✭✭✭
    whatever you do, i would STRONGLY advise you wait on citing anybody until we know the next mega and event crew, so they don't decide to drop in someone you cite now...

    ...and if you can wait long enough, maybe wait to see if they do the premium packs for honor sale again this year too!

    Just wanted to point out that Age of Sail Data handily beats Hollander for data CMD, though he's the only alternative and was a pack only crew originally, though he's now in portal.
