    It leaves the option to have Captain Riker for any of the times Riker was in command of the Enterprise. BOBW and Future Imperfect both come to mind as possibilities.

    FE/FF level 100 CMD 1276 (199-453), DIP 518 (90-174), SEC 967 (183-357)
    FE 1/5 level 100 CMD 886 (199-453), DIP 293 (90-174), SEC 519 (183-357)

    Puts him at the #29 overall Voyager, but that high placement is misleading - four of those above him have the same skillset in various combinations and seven of those above him have CMD and SEC. Combined with no ranked gauntlet or faction pairs, he's disappointingly underwhelming from a stats perspective, IMO. The art is great though.

    If you're buying that pack, you're probably either a completionist, a Riker lover, or really want Admiral Kirk or Captain Janeway.

    Or because they just want the strongest Riker, so far. :)
    Okay, guess it counts as Riker lover....maybe,

    I guess it doesn’t fit with the New Beginnings / Second Postings theme, but if Janeway (or better yet, Worf) had been Mutated Paris, I’d be in for this pack. I’ve got 2x FF Janeway just waiting for a couple Paris to drop, and I’m getting tired of the wait.

    An excellent point that I didn't consider. He's definitely far and away the strongest Riker in the game, and Riker is a fairly common occurence amongst bonus crew.

    Also "Parallels" comes to my mind. Speaking of that episode, how about a First Officer Worf?

    Not objectively, nope. #157 Overall Voyager, #2 DIP/SCI/MED. But he is unique among Rikers due to his MED skill, so that's a huge point in his favour.

    After Zhang He Riker, Riker Odan is the highest ranked from a stats perspective (#77 Overall Voyager, #5 DIP/SCI Shuttle, #5 SCI Base, #4 SCI/DIP/CMD), and Little John isnt too far behind (#101 Overall Voyager, #9 CMD/SEC Shuttle, #6 SEC/CMD/DIP).

    So, Koloth is still the best CMD-DIP-SEC triplet voyager then? Well, there's still hopes for "Captain William Riker" (Best Of Both Worlds).

    I'm surprised (and disappointed) that no one has pointed out that he's wearing the entirely wrong uniform.

    How do you mean, it's the same as the art ingame.

    Not sure what you mean. That looks like the exact uniform used in the game. https://stt.wiki/wiki/U.S.S._Zheng_He_Riker

    He means the wrong era. Should be grey shoulders like current fleet.
    However, it could have been an unseen interim version that was current when he retired and he grabbed it to use. Some services have legacy rules, allowing retired or reactivated personnel to grab their old uniform when they feel it is called for. In some cases, it is unofficially tolerated. I've heard stories of WWI vets showing up in their doughboy gear after Pearl Harbor to help.

    Should be grey shoulders like the screenshot, more specifically:

    I selected that screenshot since it's clearly the basis for the artwork. Except the artwork uniform is clearly red, rather than the screenshot uniform, which is clearly gray.

    I think it's far likelier that it's just a coloring mistake. But if it is some unseen interim version, it's either something from the drawing boards or a Timelines Original.

    I agree it’s red. My mom loved it when my dad would buy pink sports team gear thinking they were red.

    at least mirror vic actually has a resemblance to poor James Darren. Now that Vic is in the monthly rewards it might be a fun treat to have his art updated 🖖

    Exactly. Are people actually claiming that this image shows gray shoulders?

    Looking forward to USS Titan Riker and USS Enterprise-D Acting Captain Riker.
