Are the merged cards worth it??

Ok, bit of a random one but I one I feel needs to be asked: Are these merge cards worth the hassle?

So far I have obtained and frozen The Duras sisters and Tuvix and neither offered any great stats. Neither were part of any collection and they required a lot of portal pulls to get to ff/fe.

I'm all for card collecting and froze all my orignal cards before obtaining these two and freezing them but Im wondering what others think? Are they useful or just a vanity project?

I currently have a 2 star mutated paris and a 1 star captain janeway, with only janeway previously banked. I dont know if i should bank paris first, or just go ahead to merge them.

The stats are not great for an evolved janeway, and like i said there is no collection. But banking paris is 1 step closer towards the imortalised 375 cards achievement.

Urgh. Lol

    Evolved Janeway is a good legendary at higher fuse level.
    Hope you know about leveling to 99 and fully equipping before doing first merge, of the merge crew. After that first one, no leveling of others is needed.

    I remember evolved janeway making voyages for me at lower fuse levels too.
    Mainly because of DIP MED DIP SCI combo.
    I know it is not MED I have no idea how I put MED in.

    Of course they aren't worth it. ;) Just something that DB thought up to keep the masses occupied (and spending). Oh, don't forget the massive bragging rights that are earned! :smiley:

    I don’t think they are worth chasing but that’s just me. As for Evolved Janeway and the DIP/MED combo, there are so many in the game with that combo. Jumping through a bunch of hoops isn’t worth such a common skill set

    @Banjo1012 She has no MED.

    Like most things in life it depends... For me she was worth it. She is my best DIP with SEC.

    I took the word of the guy above who said he remembers using her for that combo. I see she is DIP/SCI. Another skill set I would not jump through hoops to get

    Nowadays I do not spend as much as I did in the first six months of playing. Back then she was easy to finish. FTP I would consider it trice though as they will block 3 slots for a long time.

    Tuvix can be used in some events. The Duras Sisters are great. They have a high ship attack and a very long attack time. I still use them. Janeway is good, but I don't have her maxed yet. Zero One, One Zero is worse than the individual cards.

    They're mostly vanity projects. The 3* merged to 4* are easy enough to do so might as well. Mutated Janeway has been doable for me so far. I currently have her at 3/5 and only used a 4* citation twice when I wanted to ff a 3/4 and clear two roster spots. I think she'll eventually be worth it at 5/5. Cheesecake Seven is probably the best of the bunch in terms of stats, but also the worst to try and build because of the 5* Doc required. I might consider getting a 1/5 and then citing via citations from there. And the binars are so bad that I would just skip them.

    Absolutely this. Fusing her naturally is probably a project that will not be finished by the time the game shuts down.

    The Bynars I will only do after the individual two are done. Vanity, absolutely.

    For me, Janeway ticked me off, so I worked for her, and Immortalized her immediately.

    I find you dont even need to do that, as in leveling to 99. All my other fusions were sat at level 1 when i merged them to the card. Not even equipped.

    EG a lv1 tuvok (at 3 stars) was fused with a level 1 neelix, no trainers used at all. Was the same with the Duras sisters.

    The build rate for the lower cards was not much better than levelling the higher card

    Most people do the Level 99/FE thing, because when you do the Fusion, you end up with a fully equipped Level 99 of the new card. Handful of Legendary Trainers, and the Fusion card is 💯/FE..........


    EDIT TO ADD: If you are Fusing two three 🌟 Crew, chances are that one of them is going to have lower Rarity Gear at 99 than the new four 🌟. Same with making two four 🌟 s into a five 🌟..........

  • They are by far the best use for super rare citations. Lizard Janeway and Cheezcake7 are very good cards.
  • Zom[BAD] Squirrel Zom[BAD] Squirrel ✭✭✭✭✭
    Besides Lizard Janeway and Cheesecake Seven, none are worth imho.

    I often use cheesecake seven. Because she has med / eng combo and often the trait is needed for voyages. Janeway is seldom in use.
  • DScottHewittDScottHewitt ✭✭✭✭✭
    My LizWay is always either on a Voyage or a Shuttle.

    I've seen quite a few Durases in the Arena. They do have that on my duration high Attack Boost. Not everyone has Sledgehammers for every Crew position.

    If you are Captain level 60 or below, (also depending on a number of other variables) then Tuvix & Duras Sisters are great for certain things. I remember using both of them often to complete missions. Of course, that was way back when they were new and still towards the top of the power board, which they are not so much anymore.

    Once you get higher leveled and are more focused on other crew, then you can just freeze them for collectible purposes. (Which is what I did)

    my 5/5 FE Lizard Jane goes on frequent Voyages and shuttles. I won't even consider Binars for a very long time, perhaps one of the last crew I may ever build.

    I'm still waiting for another mobile doc for my cheesecake Seven...

    I concur with this. The only fused crew of value are Janeway and Seven.

    Imo, the 4* fuses are really just for collecting. Once you have them, freeze them. Its unlikely Duras will ever make an event. They have a total of... 3 traits... I have seen them on Arena battles though. Tuvix might be more useful for newer players seeing as he/it? gets bonus for Tuvok and Neelix

    One Zero Zero One is totally useless... and probably only worth doing when you have nothing else to collect...

    Evolved Janeway is worth it. She makes a lot of voyages for me AND a lot of shuttles, given her very high base scores for Diplomacy and Science. Plus she is a Janeway. Full disclosure: Janeway is my favorite captain so I love this card, but I believe she is still great objectively. (My credentials: I have Evolved Janeway immortalized)

    Indulgent Seven is worth it. The Med/Sci/Eng combo is not as rare as it once was, but she has strong base scores in both Medicine and Science making her useful for both voyages and shuttles, plus she counts as both Seven and The Doctor for event purposes, giving her a lot of added event value. (My credentials: I have Indulgent Seven immortalized)

    Tuvix is probably not worth it anymore, although for brand new people I would recommend going for it. His scores have been power creeped pretty hard at this point, but he does count as both Tuvok and Neelix for events, but after a player gets a healthy roster going, Tuvix will probably remain in the freezer. (My credentials: I have Tuvix immortalized)

    The Duras Sisters are worth it if only for their Arena ability, although if you have better options available they are not worth it. (My credentials: I have The Duras Sisters immortalized)

    One Zero Zero One is not worth it. Like, at all. Were I to create a list of the worst cards in the game, this one would most certainly be near the top of that list. Tons of work to put together, only two skills, both of which are REALLY bad. (My credentials: I do not have One Zero Zero One)


    Of course all of these cards have value to collectors, so from that standpoint if collecting is a priority, then ignore these recommendations.

    What he said. Every word. My Evolved Janeway has been a big help and I think will still be valuable after I finish citing the Xindi Insectoid and Prophet Sarah Sisko. She does eat a lot of slots, so careful planning around event/theme packs is a good idea and any 4* citations that can be spared will help speed things along even further.
  • Since it was mentioned that none of them are in any collections: I'm all for making a collection of fused characters. We have one for the gauntlet-only crew. Why not have one for merged-only crew? And while we're at it, we should have one for voyage-only crew as well.

    And before anyone asks, I don't already have them all. 😅 Collections would offer an additional incentive for collecting them.

    Good ideas. On both Collections.

    One thing that I didn't see mentioned (sorry if I missed it): Tuvix counts as Neelix and Tuvoc for events. Neither of them really get many events, but I have no regrets about working on Tuvix. He's mostly on ice, but he comes out from time to time. Neither Tuvoc nor Neelix have an abundance of variants. Having one that counts as both isn't a bad thing.

    Other than that, I agree with @Bylo Band 's assessment above.
  • I would rank their usefulness like this:

    1) Cheesecake Seven. There are other options with MED-ENG, but most of them don't have such a good voyage rank and none of them has the event potential of this card.

    -- a long distance in usefulness --

    2) Evolved Janeway. I have her at 4/5* now and she's relatively easy to upgrade using the purple campaign citations. Given that she is a decent voyager and main cast, not having to spend honor on her and still being able to fuse her up in a relatively short time, makes her useful, in my opinion.

    3) Duras Sisters. For everyone who doesn't have Locutus yet, they're good in the arena.

    -- another long distance --

    4) Tuvix. By the time I had him immortal he was already completely useless for me, but that might have changed now that 3* are probably easier to get through voyages and campaign pulls.

    -- an even longer distance --

    5) The Bynars. I want them because I liked them on TNG, but I can't think of a single thing they would be useful for.

    I too have mentioned this on a previous thread. A collection for both seem overdue
  • Early on the fused purples are great. Tuvix was a highly used card for me for a long time before I acquired better cards.

    They’re also just fun and good for completionists.

    The fused gold cards are definitely worth it. Evolved Janeway is a really good DIP card, and Cheesecake Seven is just amazing all around.
