    Cute. I'm glad it doesn't seem to be a must-have.

    I got a second ⭐ for Bem. Wanted the little guys, but adding a ⭐ to a Legendary works!

    I just wish the avatar was not such a big close up so we could see the tardigrade better.

    I REALLY hope extreme close-up selfies are not going to be the new thing.

    I agree. I thought Q was just a mistake. Now this one. Why were the sizes changed, @Shan?

    If it had been this I would have bought a bunch of that pack.

  • I am not sure we can change how the avatar looks as it it auto generated :/
    I think it is our biggest face yet.
    I will add this to our list of potential improvements we can hopefully look into.

    So, although nobody asked for my feedback, I feel strongly about letting my feelings be known anyway. :p

    I quite liked that Short Trek episode — I thought it was cute, for a one-off episode. But as with characters from TAS, my hope is always that the artwork for characters taken from non-live-action shows will be represented in a more realistic manner in Timelines, matching the majority of the rest of the characters in STT. (Although TAS characters in the game have been sort of hit-or-miss in that regard.)

    This, however, makes me think that if Lower Decks characters are ever introduced, they'll be completely unrealistic-looking, and will instead look pretty much like the highly-stylized animation of that show. And since one big reason why I play is because I enjoy collecting characters, seeing things take a turn towards that style of artwork might just turn me off from playing the game at all, at some point.

    Yes, I know this is only one character. But we also had Em, for instance, and it opens the door to the idea that not everything needs to look like it could exist in reality. That's not something that pleases me. I like realism in the characters' artwork — it draws me further into the game. Playing with characters that do not look in any way realistic would change the very face of the game for me.

    Of course gameplay is a very important part of maintaining players' interest in the game. But would all the various gameplay elements be half as interesting without the characters? The artwork in STT — and the quality and realism of said artwork — has always been highly important to me... that's why I've posted numerous threads and posts over the years about artwork I've enjoyed and artwork I thought missed the mark, in hopes that a certain level of quality was maintained. I'm happy to say that I think that much of our feedback here was taken to heart by the powers that be, and that there has been a pretty high level of consistency and quality for some time now.

    But I still enjoy this game after 4+ years, and so I would hate to see something come along that would affect my enjoyment and make me reconsider sticking with it. :/

    Just giving my totally unvarnished personal opinion, of course — YMMV.


    Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

    It is more that it is just Ephraim and no Dot in the avatar for me. I bought two- both Em/3/Green now finished- and am resisting buying more as all the purples are FF for me. I love the episode and want it so bad though.

    Are they really auto generated? I've noticed before that the two faces are much closer in the portrait for Balok:

    Hmm crew portrait is different I believe but nonetheless you are on to something

    Is that not something you can confirm?

    Ripper is primal, but not tardigrade
    Ephraim is tardigrade, but not primal
    Would be nice to see those consistent before the pack is gone, especially with a collection involved.
  • Hopefully, here in the UK, we will get to see the Short Treks at some point. As it stands, I have no idea who this character is and so it follows that I won't bother purchasing packs.

    Understandable. It is a fantastic episode where you do get to see it. It's one I recommend even to non Trek fans. They will be easy to Retrieve once added to the Portal. I already started checking!

    I believe Rescue Uhura is the only one {So far} who is from TAS, but looks more like artwork drawn of a live-action character. And she is drawn so "Live-actiony" people didn't realize she was from TAS when she was introduced, mostly.

    The first four should be on Netflix under trailers and more. The rest you can buy on DVD for around £10 or so.

    For the captain avatar version of Ephraim and Dot, this is something that we will be able to rectify, but I do not have an ETA. I've logged in the request.

    Avatars and crew portraits are not auto-generated, that was an error on my part.

    Regarding the traits, Ripper would indeed need to have the "tardigrade" trait added, however "primal" will not be added to 'Ephraim and Dot' as it does not fit with the episode.

    That makes sense, within the context of how both were presented. Ripper DID do some "ripping", thus the Primal. Ephraim was much more non-Primal and not at all Rippy.
