    I'm happy for a reason to take a week off.

    Or... nice artwork, 3 stat-buffing collections, solid stats (not elite, just solid), and a reason to care about Alexander in-game. :)

    Three collections? Nice, I want it.

    It's Alexander ... He shouldn't have been a 5* in the first place. I'm more miffed about the crappy flashbacks just repeats without any added benefits ... So for me this will be a hard pass ... Looks like alcohols back on the menu boys :)

  • If we can get the Kal'Hyah Martok, we'll have the entire groom party. Throw in Bride Jadzia and Srirella and we could have a nice collection... Or how about a wedding collection in general? "You Are Cordially Invited..." Is the perfect title either way.

    Bride Keiko also. What about a Bride Torres and Troi and Groom Paris and Riker? The couple who got married in TOS when the Romulans first appeared?

    We have the Bride Troi, but we need Groom O'Brien. As many O'Brien's as there are, they are all DS9. No TNG era O'Brien's to be found. Him in his dress uniform would be perfect.

    Dress uniform would be perfect for the wedding collection. But we also need Transporter Chief O'Brien and Conn Officer O'Brien from TNG.

    Question: If I wait to claim all of the Threshold rewards until after the event concludes, will the Community rewards be included with them? I read this as slightly ambiguous, so some clarification would be appreciated:

    Hmm that's a leftover from another event I think.
    That sentence should not there in this case.
    Community rewards will be included at the end of the event.

  • I think Alexander was the worst developed semi-regular character who had a speaking part in all of Star Trek. His stats match. Morn had a more developed story and character than Alexander.

    The scene where Morn is way in the background telling "the funniest joke in the Galaxy" is hilarious. Of course we cannot hear a word of it. But the actor is just so animated. I believe I read somewhere that since he was out of audio range, he was told to "just tell a funny joke" and he did. The laughter of the extras apparently was organic and natural, rather than pretend.

    I'm still bitter that they lied and said "we'll provide the old 5* at 400k in reruns", then said "hahah suckers, you bought that, we're changing the name to flashback and giving you the finger instead."

    6 years in, and nothing changes.

    Captain Morgan Bateson (July)

    Frank Hollander (also March)

    Very good summary. And excellent examples of the variation in what is basically the same thing being different. I know they love Flashbacks over Reruns because Flashbacks need zero re-working. But, adding that 400K reward shouldn't be major work. And would increase engagement for those that need the character, or a star for the character.

    Adding a 400k reward isn't the work. Adding a new character is. It's the same work for every new character whether it's a 4*/5* in a Tuesday pack, a 4*/5* in an event, or even a 2*/3* added somehow. They apparently can't keep up with adding new characters a week(2 in event and 1 in Tuesday pack) plus the mega crew and the occasional giveaway, gauntlet, and honor hall crew. The rerun saved them designing 1 new crew. The flashback saves them designing 2 new crew. So the combination of both a rerun and a flashback between megas gives them 3 crew they don't have to design so they can design the mega crew and the other additional crew.

    Well, I thought the 400K Reward was from the Event already or something like that that was existing. My bad.

    The 400K reward is the existing legendary from the event. But they have to be replaced in the ranked rewards, so that means adding a new legendary for that. And it generally means tweaking a few things about the event to fit the new character as well (bonus traits etc), so that's some more work that they don't have to do with a flashback.

    But, isn't the Ranked Legendary SUPPOSED to be for the next week any way? I'm totally confused.

    Yes. So in the week before a rerun you get a new legendary as the ranked reward, then the old legendary as the 400K reward in the event itself. In the week before a flashback you get the old legendary, then no 400K reward in the event. The ranked reward during the event will always be next week's legendary, whether it's a rerun or a flashback.
