    Gonna have Prospero Data on guitar for this one. Just needs a tophat and sunglasses to make a good Slash!

    Data, need an intro riff please...
    (Thank you, and here we go!)

    Welcome to Trek Timelines!
    A "collection" game.
    They've got all the crew you want, Captain you know their names.
    But if your favorites you find, you know what you'll need...
    If you got the money, maybe, you can pay slot fees.

    In Trek Timelines, welcome to Trek Timelines!
    Slots will bring you to your, shun-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-nuh knees, knees!
    Aww, aww. Dil savings gonna bleed!

    Welcome to Trek Timelines!
    New crew on us, every day.
    If you want 'em you're gonna bleed, yet still more price to pay.
    So you open up some portals. Get a great event score.
    Might earn yourself five lights, but, only get to keep four.

    In Trek Timelines, welcome to Trek Timelines!
    Feel like, feel like...this was unforseen.
    Slots make me want to scream!

    (Data interlude)

    Welcome to Trek Timelines!
    A slot crisis, every day.
    You find to live, you must buy more slots! Like a whale you will pay.
    Got a hunger for what you see, you'll get them eventually.
    You can have any crew you want, but you just, can not keep 'em for free.

    In Trek Timelines, welcome to Trek Timelines!
    Down on my, n-n-n-n-n-n-nuh knees, knees!
    "Oh more crew slots!", I plead!

    (Once more Data)

    Slots are tight. You never,
    Never wanna run out.
    Run out. I'm oouuut! Slots!!!

    Know where your crew are?
    They're in the airlock, baby.
    They're gonna flyyyyy!

    In Trek Timelines!

    I’d record it, but I can’t hit 80s Axl Rose notes. Of course, neither can 2010s Axl Rose.

    Ya but we all expect crew slot sale and maybe 5 free crew slots. In the coming up megaevent.

    I don't expect that.
    Okay not we all then “some of us” instead.

    Rather, I'm hoping that a targeted use of irony will serve to further highlight the ridiculousness of the crew slot mechanic, the pricing of extra slots, the inability to freeze non-FF crew, and the lowball honor reward from airlocking.

    And charging us to pull them out of cryo.

    Can we please get some free crew slots with this new mega event?! I’m hoping more than 5. 5 slots get filled before the event is even over. A half off sale would be nice too! Please don’t make me beg, it is really ugly when I start begging 😢😅😂.

    This is a pay to win game. Either buy new crew slots, work harder to immortalize and free more crew, or air-lock your least favorite crew. Those are your options.

    How very Federation of you! I'm sure Riker would approve!

  • Some extra crew slots would be lovely with the new Skirmish events.
    /me bats eyes at DB
    Welcome to the Star Trek Timelines Discord server

    Rise, like lions after slumber, in unvanquishable number
    Shake your chains to Earth, like dew, which in sleep had fallen on you
    Ye are many; they are few!
  • Y'know, if DB were inclined, there would be an easy way to split the difference between P2W crew-slots and F2P demand: announce that they would start giving extra crew slots at some consistent interval, say 2 or 3 months. They could set the interval so that it covers some of the new crew but not all; so if you want to keep crew out, you'll still have to buy. But if you just want to keep up with certain crew because you aren't vaulting them fast enough, a bit of management would let you stay inside this window.

    If they announce this as a consistent change going forward, it should minimize the squawking from those who've bought slots before, because they still have value.

    Mind you, I'd prefer they just eliminate slot limits altogether (or set a new max that covers all crew unless you keep duplicates), but I'll accept this compromise gladly.

    Ok, how's your English accent? ;)


    Every crew you make,
    Every one, I take.
    Every crew I chase,
    But I have no space.
    I need slots for crew.

    Every single day,
    I log on and play.
    But I need to say,
    How can I convey?
    I need slots for crew.

    Oh, please, D.B.!
    Crew belong to me.
    But by some mistake,
    My goals, you unmake.

    Discard till I ache.
    My will, you just break.
    My progress, is fake.
    In my heart, a stake.
    I need slots for crew.

    My crew gone, they're airlocked without a trace.
    I dream always, of having, unending space.
    I get some slots, but my need, I still outpace.
    A distress call into cold, empty, subspace:
    I keep crying, "D.B.! Crew slots, please!"

    Oh, please, D.B.!
    Crew belong to me.
    But by some mistake,
    My goals, you unmake.

    Discard till I ache.
    My will, you just break.
    My progress, is fake.
    In my heart, a stake.
    I need slots for crew.

    Praise be! Now I can stop hoarding my dilithium and extend some Voyages in pursuit of Colonel Worf.

    I mixed you up with someone else in the old forum.
    You were the one that dealt with a fact.
    DB is in this to make money.

    So if DB does something like they just did. You will get to be pleasantly surprised.
    The rest of us who are optimistic will be wrong more times than we are right.😉

    Thanks @Shan!

    Now can you have a special offer for Dilithium so we can give your company money!
  • Shy KhanShy Khan ✭✭✭✭✭
    Whooo hoo! Free slots and a sale! I can breathe, again! (Unlike in real life... stupid tree pollen...!) Thanks, Disruptor Beam!

    Though a day too late for poor, airlocked Cadet Wesley Crusher.... Shut up in peace, Wesley.

    Oddly enough, I airlocked him yesterday as well. May the vacuum of space bring rest to the dear airlocked 1/4 card of Cadet Wesley.

    Woohoo! D.B. comes through just when we needed them! <3

    (And I'm totally taking credit with my latest song posted this morning, since I beat Shan's announcement by a good five minutes. ;) )

    Let me add, I managed to hold on to him in both my accounts because I made a decision to freeze all 2 stat superrares except Mirror Phlox, and Captain Klaa.
    In my main account I have the other 4* immortalized two stats frozen. That includes some good base stats as well as Graduate Burnham who could on occasion make a voyage.

    Otherwise, my Cadet Wesley Crusher would have been introduced to space.

    Thank you DB.

    I can now fully participate in the mega event :) Had to hold back the last several events dreading another 1/5 or 2/5 permanently blocking a crew slot. Still ended up with a Killy and Rom.
  • Shy KhanShy Khan ✭✭✭✭✭
    Now I’m wondering if I can immortalize another 16 crew by next Tuesday to get some more dilithium.
