    It‘s just a wild guess though...

    So much scrolling. Hope that gets fixed soon.
    Thank you for the info, Shan. (Hope your time off is/was enjoyable.) I'm looking forward to a skirmish and Uhura and Chapel, but mostly Gary of Izar. And hopefully more of that quality dialogue.

    Is this Nimbus III Uhura, possibly? (Wasn’t that a rescue mission?)

    Was thinking that one but I’d bet it’s going to be this one:

    Anything less will be a disappointment.

    I am 1000% okay with this.

    Could it be the Uhura who, along with Chapel, led an all-female rescue party in TAS episode 'The Lorelei Signal'? 7q42xyfmonkp.jpg
    Intriguing...if that were to be the case, it would be the first TAS version of a main character and could raise some interesting questions about art style - would it follow the tradition of taking the very flat TAS art and making it something truly special or would it borrow a pose from one or more live-action scenes with a different uniform?

    I’ve always assumed the 2* Kirk was his TAS version. Am I off-base in thinking that?

    Yes, but I'm accepting it as head canon now.

    This is interesting. I always assumed it was TOS since the artwork is much too detailed to be TAS, but upon further inspection Commander Thelin, Aleek-Om, Arex Na Eth, and Lucien all have equally detailed artwork inconsistent with the original hand drawn art. That being the case you may be right.

    However, given that the other 2 options in the first free captains choice (2* picard and 2* promoted sisko) are all main series, I would venture to guess that the original intention was for it to be TOS. Who knows really.

    So much oooooooooh! Early news, and new Chapels and Uhuras are always welcome!

    (Plus an ew for another repeat 5* ship)

    Garth isn't event crew but should give full bonus right?

    Garth isn't listed as event crew here
  • Garth is the recurring mega, he’s event crew all month.
  • ~peregrine~~peregrine~ ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Glenn Fiddich , the Mega-Event recurring 5* has been featured crew (i.e. high bonus) in each week of every prior Mega-Event. 🖖

  • I know, shan just didn't list him as bonus crew
  • Dirk GundersonDirk Gunderson ✭✭✭✭✭

    He is event crew. Event crew provide max bonus. Therefore, Garth provides max bonus.

    ^ What Dirk said.

    For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure variants of Spock should provide medium bonus as well.
  • Don’t have a legendary Uhura card yet, so definitely jazzed about this event. Maybe I’ll try to go for more than 1 copy. I hope she has at least decent stats.

    I am very much looking forward to seeing how the need for a couple hundred Federation transmissions gets worked into this skirmish event ;)

    I really hope it’s feather fans Uhura! That was a rescue team after all! Lol!
    Weirdly enough, I’m also Vulcan Housewife. Also, RNGesus hates me, like really, REALLY hates me.
  • I'm a bit surprised that the TNG-era appearances by the TOS bridge crew are all bonus crew, but the Disco Spock variants aren't. It's almost as if they're two different people...
  • I think it is based on the actor. TNG variant is the same actor, but not disco variant. It's a peculiar type of logic, but the path is clear.

    Speaking of transmissions, it might be worthwhile to run Augments shuttles since Christine Chapel is certain to need Medical and Science Experiments.
