Is this the acute Red Angle, or the Obtuse. (Burnham or her mother)?

When do we find out her skills and traits.

    Its the new Gauntlet crew.
    Sir, I protest! I am NOT a merry man!

    This was my first question, too. Burnham’s mother seems like the more obvious choice because it reduces the Angel’s utility as event crew.

    So...what skills do we think?

    SCI, I would assume. Maybe SEC? And I can feel CMD because she basically led Disco around the universe.

    I'm hoping I'm wrong. Because then that's the same mix as Armus.

    And @Shan, can you confirm if she will count as a variant of Burnham ?

    SEC/COM/SCI is possible, though I agree it would be far too close to Armus (and Gary Seven) to be of real value. My hope is for ENG/SEC/SCI or ENG/SEC/COM - someone who can break up ENG walls populated by The Caretaker while providing a gauntlet skill combo that is hard to find, unless you have two-skiller Augment Commander O’Brien. Given how involved Gabrielle was in building the suit, it’s a skill set that I think makes sense as well.

    I fully expect this to be another Gauntlet crew that I will never get (see: Caretaker, The). 🙁

    My negativity aside, I could see an Eng, Sci. Com skill list; seeing as it was built by either momma Burnham or Mike Burnham; Sci as secondary because time travel obviously. The third trait is the wildcard; could also be Dip because it’s the catch all or Sec because it’s the second catch all (I see no chance at Med).

    If the company gets its act together, I will play Gauntlet again, because this could be a very cool card. The skillset speculation alone will be entertaining enough for the next week. 🖖

  • This is amazing.

    This should be fantastic. Please do not let us down with a underwhelming image
    This has the potential to be among the best Portrait in the game.
    I so do not want to be disappointed.

    It's only my opinion but....

  • Bye bye Armus... Don't get your slick stuck on the way out....

    Do the developers realise that new cards are not new content?

    It's like we scream, "new content" and they sling a couple of new cards our way.

    Honestly, I think they do realize that. Or at least that's the impression I got from Ben during his Timelines Talks interview.

    I will say that a new Gauntlet character is a bit closer to new content than a regular card is, because it at least temporarily revives a part of the game, but Ben made it sound like there was more stuff coming that genuinely new.

    Gross choice IMO, glad others are content about it

    I was thinking SEC (for protecting her daughter), with ENG & SCI (for having built the suit & equipment needed to travel through time & space).

    I could see an argument made for MED, since she was essentially a distant caretaker/guardian for her daughter.

    A combination of ENG, CMD, and SCI could be a real possibility given what happens in the show.

    We don’t have many ENG/CMD/MED crew...that would be nice.

    Seems like it would be science, engineering, diplomacy combo. Science because red angel was able to time travel, engineering because the suit was created, diplomacy because red angel was able to send signals to others.
  • The Red Angel is a good choice. I like the devs' habit of using unique and extraordinary characters as Gauntlet rewards. Kevin Uxbridge would be another good choice for this in the future.

    That said, if this one isn't an ENG primary crew with enough firepower to finally break the Caretaker's indefensible dominance of that trait, I will walk backwards into the ocean while howling a blood oath of vengeance to the gods.

    I wonder how much of that contentment is relief at having a new gauntlet crew regardless of who it is, rather than the actual choice itself. I think I fall into that category, since the Red Angel was at the core of the most needlessly convoluted storyline I think Trek has ever featured. I’m also looking forward to a unique/useful skill set that we haven’t seen in the gauntlet yet.

    It was a compressed version of ENT's temporal war, with a more personal, emotional core rather than ENT had.

    Both were pretty weak as arcs though.

    I enjoyed a lot of S2 of DISCO, but I found the arc overall came up short. The Red Angel was an intriguing character at the start, and could've joined Trek's roster of powerful beings, instead it ended up being pretty prosaic.
