    I wouldn't mind getting another star on Zek. I'll just try for him in a pack since I know I won't want to finish top 1k.

    Also, Bravo DB on another rerun. I think the majority of us want to see reruns more often.
  • @Travis S McClain thanks for the story!
    What's a knockout like you doing in a computer-generated gin joint like this?

    It's a galaxy event, they don't really need a larger pool of bonus crew.
  • Wait a second.. actually?!!?!?

    My understanding is that was a thing in previous events, but hasn't happened in a while.

    That was a voting option we experimented with, and it is no longer being done.

    I wasn’t around when the event first played sooo.. why does everyone call this the cursed event?

    Gather 'round, young'uns, I'mma tell y'all a story. It began on the twenty fifth day in the month of August in the Year of Our Lord two thousand and sixteen, when "The Prime Directive" went live at noon Eastern Standard Time, the same as every event before and since. Except this time, there was a flaw in the slaw. Every time any of us crafted an item, the game crashed and had to restart. Didn't make no difference whether 'twas one item or another, or who was doin' the craftin'. Nope, it just set that game into a tizzy. Within the hour, the event was "paused". All our progress was preserved (what little there was, anyway).

    The team scrambled throughout that evening to write an entirely new Faction Event on the fly, which they dubbed "Unlikely Heroes"--surely a nod to their own valiant work to rescue the weekend. The Faction Event format in those days only featured one 4* crew; three copies in the Thresholds and up to four in the Rank Rewards. It was decided to make Agent Harris the event's 4*, though Tucker variants qualified for the event bonus.

    For our troubles, we were all sent an in-game message with an unprecedented 1000 "we're sorry" chronitons, thereafter referred to as "sorrytons". "Unlikely Heroes" unfolded as intended, and we were assured that "The Prime Directive" would be "unpaused" as soon as the bug that interrupted it had been squashed. Sounded find to all of us, except it kept not happening.

    See, it needed to be fixed with the 1.4 build.

    Then it needed to be fixed with the 1.5.1 build. By now, we're into the month of October. It was decided by now to give us all a break--DB staff included--and run no event the weekend of 20 October 2016. We got a free weekend...and 1000 "sorrytons".

    The new build would be approved by Apple and "The Prime Directive" would "unpause" the following weekend (27 October). Except that didn't happen, either.

    Nope, instead, there were still problems, which is how we got "Ghost in the Machine" and another 1000 "sorrytons". "The Prime Directive" was pushed back to 4 November, except it didn't happen then, either. We got "Dictators, Unite!"...and another 1000 "sorrytons".

    It wasn't until 17 November 2016 that "The Prime Directive" finally "unpaused", with any and all progress made in that scant hour it was originally live preserved as promised. By then, we'd gone through at least three delays, two server builds, one eventless weekend, and 3000 "sorrytons".

    And that's the legend of the Cursed Event.

    Funnily enough, I started playing just a few weeks after the original failed attempt, so I got a lot of the Sorrytons, and I read all of the messages in my in-game mail about it, but actually had no idea what the deal was with it at the time. xD

    I just kept reading them like, “Oh, you’re sorry that this one event isn’t happening this weekend. That’s cool. Okay. Erm.... What event would that be...?”

    I very much appreciated the chrons, though! They helped me along nicely as a newer player. (:

    I thought that "manual pilot mode" was awesome.

    But Mirror Tucker just ran in the recently mirror mega event.
    Come on, after that there are so many characters, now you repeat some over and over.
    Be more professional!

    He is probably the pack only card for this event. Nice for folks that only got 3 stars when he recently featured.

    They haven't done a new Janeway since the Mirror mega have they?

    Unlikely Heroes was my first event! I only kinda remember all this. Guess I didn't pay much attention in the early days.

    Hope I can do better than my original #18287.

    Didn't we vote away one of the Ferengi factions at one point?

    Rule 125 we voted for their defeat in the Ferengi Civil War, not sure if that was supposed to destroy them or just drive em underground,

    Agent Janeway is a version of her Katrine character in the episodes The Killing Game Parts 1 and 2. Why she was given the "Section 31" trait still baffles me since Section 31 was never mentioned or shown in Voyager.
    There are three ways to do something; the right way, the wrong way, and the Janeway.

    Agent Janeway is inspired by The Killing Game, but introduced in an event featuring Section 31, and given the trait for the event story.

    The canon version of Janeway from The Killing Game is called Katrine.
