  • Fantastic. GOD SO MANY BONUS CREW. Thrilled to get another star on my OG Kirk.

    That's a lot of potential event crew
  • Is Grudge that fat kitten? 😱🙈

    Nice to see Manchester Booker already - I really hope they get around to using David Ajala properly in Disco.

    So... does Data Q count as a variant of Data? :sweat_smile:
  • So Kirk will be a 400k threshold?
  • JayBeezyJayBeezy ✭✭✭
    Hey Shan! Frederick La Rouque was event crew in the second running of this event. Is he still event crew in this third running of the event? And can we can him for the 400K threshold instead of Gangster Kirk? Selfishly, I already have that Kirk immortalized. Thanks!

    Data Q has counted as a variant of Data in at least one previous event, that I can recall.
  • EnderWEnderW ✭✭✭✭✭
    Kinda called it! :D This will be the first event where I have almost all the event crew immortalized (Carlos Data being the odd one out). Is this the first three-time rerun?

    I, too, am interested in knowing if Frederick La Rouque will count as event crew; he's done nothing for me since this last event, so any use will be good in my opinion.

    I think the Expedition with Data and the Professor has been run three times and maybe one or two others. I'll pass on the pack though. Dix will need thawed and AK is nearly done.

    They don't really use most of the actors properly in that show

    I keep getting them mixed up. Will we get Kirk at 400K?

    If it’s a rerun then yes we should

    Despite being a re-run, I salivate at the thought of sending my army of Kirks on 95+% shuttles all weekend long. :smiley:

    Thanks! Just froze a second last week, and they both might make the cut if i go all-in. :smile:

    Nooooo! My 3/5 Gangster Kirk demands satisfaction!

    But my Frederick La Crewslot could also see some use. Make him bonus (small or big) and stick him in the thresholds at 450K!

    To thaw or not to thaw.
    Dix is in stasis, along with Admiral Picard, Incognito Kirk, Evil Kirk, and Niners Kira.
    I'll need Dix for sure, but Nexus Kirk is my only other immortal Kirk, that's my only finished Kira (AK is 4/4 lvl 90 and will be done soon), and I have 2 Immortal gold Picard (Mirror and P&#1) out. Slim pickings for a faction.
    Besides AK, I should be able field two immortal gold Datas (Age of Sail and Scrooge), by next week. That will raise my number of immortal golds to twenty. Gangster Kirk is 2/5*, but nearly FE. Commander Kira is the same. RP Kirk is FE, but 1/5* for now. Several FF purple Picards I could work on and some 1/5 Golds of him and Kirk. Data and Kira are two of the crew I don't have many choices for period. I only have four Kiras, counting the 2*, and not a lot of Data considering how many variants there are - just the 2 campaign 5*s and maybe 3 4*s counting Data Q. I'm going to be scrounging to build a viable roster all week. I can feel it.

    No there are a couple of really old events with multiple 5*s that have already been run 3 times.

    - They Came From the Holodeck
    - The Trouble with Klingons
    - The Game's Afoot

    are ones that come to mind.

    I always wondered how they would deal with the multiple 5* situation ... yes FLR should be present somewhere ...
    - bonuses
    - as another threshold tier ... haveing either Kirk OR FLR is going to irritate sections of the playerbase ... for example, I couldn't care less for FLR, as I don't have him, but would love to add a star to Kirk ... plenty will be in the opposite position. So really they've worked themselves into a bit of a corner here.
    - an event pack with 3 5*s and 2 4*s ... wow, complicated. :)
    - etc.

    He has his own gravity well.
    Keep calm & October 15th!!!!!

    What incantation do I have to chant to summon a response from Shan on my La Rouque question?

    I think it’s clear based on the announcement he’s not event crew.

    Wouldn't be the first time that something was left out of the announcement as an oversight. And I'll send a DM to Shan on Monday asking for clarification; no point bothering her on the weekend over a small issue that isn't relevant to the present event.

    I keep getting them mixed up. Will we get Kirk at 400K?

    Simplest way to remember, is the reward the week before a new crew or an old crew. If there was a new 5* added, then the old 5* is 400k threshold. If the old crew was the rank reward the week before, then that crew won't be repeated with another one in threshold.
  • Any chance they flip the threshold rewards to Anastasia?

    Usually they flip them.

    I would have guessed the opposite.
