    I was a bit surprised since they were not warp theorists or caregivers and it is the week before the mega but I am not complaining. I love my Tactical Officer Neelix.

    I didn’t give the usual Friday packs that close of a look because I have Neelix immortal and don’t need any two-skill ENG/SCI crew so I didn’t know until now that they were priced at a discount. Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t the Friday Old Event Packs usually 650 dil?

    Yes, but these were 490 dil which is a great deal.

    Took 4 shots at the Reconstruction pack since I also needed more stars for a duplicate copy of Riker. Added 1 star to Neelix (3/5) and 2 stars to Riker (FF'd). Not sure I would have done it at 650 (since Riker is in portal and would drop eventually), but 490 made it worth the gamble.
  • Did one Pull...got a Begold with Spock...and decided it will not get any better....

    I really wanted Neelix, so I did 4 pulls. Got 4 Burnhams. Ugh.
    I have had the worst luck on packs for the last month or so. I would really appreciate pulling a crew I am looking for eventually.
  • i was going for Reno but got final stars on resolute Chakotay and Incognito Kirk. Can't complain.

    I tried one pack to give my luck at least a chance. 600 honor.

    Although I don’t need either one from this week, those are some great packs at a still-great price today. Well done, TP, I think there are going to be some very happy new owners of Torpedo Surgeon McCoy in your near future.

    Did one and got my third star for McCoy. Tempted to keep going but I don’t want to blow too much dil for wrap ups.
  • Mirror SanoaMirror Sanoa ✭✭✭✭✭
    Again tried one, got Owo's 3rd star. Tried a second one to see if a series was coming like when I got 3 Mirror Stamets in a row but it was just honor. Still nice!

    I'm a little disappointed they're discounting previous event packs instead of offering discounted packs with bonus crew. But for people who might need/want some of the crew in these packs, it's still a good deal.

    It saves developer and artist time, and tbh it does not make any difference for me. I just hope they keep the format also outside of Mega months. I would make one shot each week if there was a legendary I wanted.

    I decided to get a bit more competitive this week. I would have pulled for duplicate SR's if they were bonus crew so I could fill more rental shuttles. Alas... These packs will not help. I'll just save for recaps.

    I've been saying for a long long time that friday packs that have been offered before should be discounted, so I think this is fantastic B)

    It's definitely a great move. I hope they continue this outside of a mega event. I would have pulled for Torpedo McCoy with or without event bonus, if I didn't already have him immortalized.

    Agreed. Aside from the fact that having more bonus crew available for purchase would only really have event-related benefits this week rather than over the next three weeks, it was really nice in previous megas to be able to load up on crew that are otherwise challenging to get.

    How good are they at that price? I would do up to ten trying for McCoy if I had the Dilithium. And he is in with two FF 4 🌟 for me........

    Were they? It was mostly mid- to low-tier portal crew afair. I hardly ever bought any of these packs as the 5*s were often expandable.

    My assumption is that they are trying out a new price point for these friday recap packs.
    As for the mega event discount packs, I think they will come out on the first Tuesday after the mega starts. That's when they came out last mega. So, the discount packs with helpful crew for this mega should still be coming.

    Yes, that's what I thought. Last week was too soon for mega-490s, and both weeks had them on the wrong day, so it doesn't look like "instead".

    Pleased to see this happen, as it was something I'd specifically requested. Hoping it was intentional! With the state of the current and previous mega, I'd prefer to have two completely random 490 packs on weekends and the single weekly 490 mega pack they did last time. Ideally, of course, they'll also do two 490 mega packs each week, as well, unlike the last mega.

    This one had great timing, too - just a few hours earlier, I was closer than ever to pulling the trigger on spacing a 3/4 Scared Scotty left over from that mega's 390 packs. One pull finished him off and freed up a crew slot!

    I could be mis-remembering, but I think I got multiple stars for Wrathful Kirk from such a pack back in December. In know I finished Bounty Hunter Mudd from mid-week mega event packs. They aren’t always great (I would say both Owo and McCoy are great today) but the price coupled with the high chance of getting them is very tough to beat.

    I seem to recall getting a few useful Legendaries from 490 Packs previously.

    You are right.

    The final even themed discounted packs are not useful at all to me. Definitely go for Wrathful Kirk if you don’t have him though. His card is great.

    Between the LTO and four pack pulls, my 2/5 Wrathful Kirk is now FF - my 500th immortal, and so paid back 750 dil from the pack pulls.

    Same - taking Kirk from 2/5* to 5/5* was pretty awesome. A bonus third star for TP Chakotay was a cherry on top of a nice Christmas sundae.

    I did not want him, so I did not buy any. But he is a very good card, that is true.

    Hello,

    Are the 490 packs a Friday thing only, and if so is it every Friday? I have noticed them from time to time and wondered why some old packs were 650 while others are 490.

    @Detra, there is no particular pattern to these things right now. Best guess is that TP is trying out some different price points and schedule timings to assess the response levels. Just judge the value for yourself and take advantage of the ones you like best (if you have the means).


    As for this week's packs... after getting 1 Neelix last week with 4 packs, I was hoping for a repeat performance with McCoy, but it was not to be. Five packs, 1x M-113 Creature, 4x Scared Scotty. Since I already had a 1/4 duplicate of Scotty held over from the TOS mega, at least I was able to finish that up.
