Crew Collector, How to Acquire?

As I try to immortalize and freeze my 'baseball card' collection of crew, I have started to run across crew that was exclusively an event reward, or is otherwise not obtainable through pulls, etc. I know there are a lot more in the 4 and 5 * rarities, but in my efforts to finish off my 3 * crew, Nepenthe Riker, Human Airiam and Restless Trip Tucker seem to be currently unobtainable by any means (unless I'm wrong? in which case I'd love to know the secret).

What other crew is currently unavailable and in 'unicorn-status'?

  • Generally speaking, when new crew are introduced they aren't added to the "Portal," which means they won't drop from packs, voyages, et cetera. Once or twice a year there will be a Portal update which adds most newer crew in, but in the meantime they're basically unobtainable.

    It's been a while since the last full Portal update, but hopefully we get one for the holidays or the January anniversary. In the meantime, if you didn't get those rare crew from the events that introduced them, all you can do is wait. I also recommend saving up your merits, so you can buy a ton of merit packs after they're added to the Portal.

    Anything added to the game since October 2019 isn’t in the portal except EV Suit Tuvok and Picard at El-Adrel.

    Yeah, when you combine the time since the last portal update with the couple months of releases preceding the update that don’t get included, it really adds up.

    Last update was March actually.

    Yes - six months since the last update plus leaving the crew released from October 2019 to March out of the pool really adds up.

    What about Commanding Officer Sisko? I’ve had him at 100 with one star forever...

    At present, the only way to get this Sisko is through the achievement and that's just the one star. If you want to FF him, you have to spend the honor to get the Rare citations.

    Aren't portal updates traditionally 6ish months apart? So it's due for another update.

    Yep, we're overdue

    Thanks to @“SSR Barkley” being kind and sharing a chart made by a fleetmate in another topic, we actually have some data on this:

    Either way, we’re due for an update. Given the pandemic and how it has disrupted so many things, there’s certainly a reasonably explanation but hopefully the update comes sooner rather than later.
  • I figure we'll probably get one around the holiday or anniversary celebrations.
