    Shan, is it galaxy/skirmish, or skirmish/galaxy (as in, which phase is first?)

    the preview said the following

    i'm going to assume this thread is more accurate, but can't be sure anymore :/

    agreed! too bad he was only in the first episode, as i thought he would be a more prominent character. hopefully he’ll show up again

    Man, if I get Sahil, I might tear up again like I did at the end of the season premiere! :)

    Nice to see Sahil represented in the game, and 5* seems appropriate.

    That’s true he had like 15 ? mins total of screen time? That‘s a lot more than the usual „not main cast“ legendaries. 😃

    Sahil's "moment" was pretty, until they completely invalidated it a few episodes later with the reveal of the existing Federation. Typical for Discovery, emotional moments over coherent plot.

    After getting Carlos Data last week, I figured I can tolerate skirmish events again if I use the Steam client and use a mouse. Much easier since I can properly view the game for long periods of time while keeping my head in an elevated position.

    Unless there is a mistake in the text (which I realize is what you’re asking about), the answer is no. Just because the mega will be “themed around” Disco doesn’t mean all Disco cards will be bonus. Besides, there are plenty of Mirror cards already. How many bonus crew do we really need?

    (I assume the question is intended to plan for upcoming faction events and not the skirmish event.)

    Outside of variants of event crew, I would not expect any blanket Disco crew bonuses for the whole mega or even for individual events. Mirror Universe crew are plentiful in both 4* and 5* varieties and, while understandably heavy on SEC, represent a good cross-section of all skills.

    Will Mirror and Disco crew provide double bonus? What about Mirror Stamets- Stamets, Mirror and Disco? Triple the bonus? :wink:

    True. And I have a large percentage. But they tend to be weak cards.

    The Mirror trait won't be an issue this next event. Really just the Faction and a half. I'm only thawing my Stamets right now. He'll be needed for the Galaxy half and I'll use whichever of the four fills my seats the best on the Skirmish half.
    The second event will be the first test. Depending on who is event crew, I may not finish thawing the...seven?...4* Mirror crew I have froze until the Phase change. I may need to thaw variants of other event crew as well to fill seats. I'm keeping about seven out at a time this event and would like to maintain that bar. I finished two gold Datas, Age of Sail and Scrooge, for this event, bringing my total immortal golds to twenty. Commander Troi and Gloria should join them by them. Maybe Queen Po, too. She's near the top of my Engineering list and I may have finished the round of improving my MED roster. There isn't much more I can do with what crew I have at hand.
    *Crosses fingers for a good portal or Voyage*
    I have three fully fused Mirror crew, Vic, Janeway, and Burnham, to finish and several more I might fully equip by then. I immortalized every fully fused variant I had of the four event crew this time and am happy with that. I added a Kira, two Data's, and two Picards to my immortal roster, three of which will contribute for a time afterwards. Other variants have been improved on.
    With two back to back half galaxies, I will basically keep a voyage out for the period between this Faction event and the Faction half. I've been picking up about 2-5 stars on purples a week lately. I'm hoping to add a couple to Mirror/Event crew out of those. Mirror Geordi and Mirror Tucker will be immortal with a single copy. Several more would with a little extra work.
    The event crew for the full Faction will make a lot of difference. If there are some good variants of those crew, that will shift the pool significantly.
    By week four, I will simply freeze whoever I don't need and use the new Burnham for crew bonus. I may even use the Skirmish to prep for the rerun, depending on the event and crew. I did well enough in Sha Ka Ree to get a copy of the 5* for the rerun and I may make a try for it again.
    Mirror isn't a bad theme and with the bonuses, several will be useful for the mid-level players. (That's where I stick myself- a flexible roster, about a third of the total crew immortal, a decent range of maxed ships, actually has made top 1500 and considers it a possibility, etc.) The choice of character for the new and existing crew will make a big difference. There are several Mirror crew we are missing and a few I would love see as originals, Riker, Yar, some of Voyager... If Mirror Janeway is an existing, the crew pool will balloon a lot.

    Well...there are 46 in total as per the Smoke & Mirrors collection, but if you don’t count 3* Smiley, might-as-well-be-a-3* Mirror Sisko, proficiency-heavy Mirror Geordi, and power-creeped Mirror Ezri, then yes it would be 42. :)
