    With the release of Human Saru, Reunion Spock and Kirk's reign as top Voyager will last about two weeks. He comes in at almost 200 points ahead before bonuses.

    I make this joke good natured-ly:

    TP Powers-That-Be: Oh, you guys want power creep, THEN WE'LL GIVE YOU SOME POWER CREEP!

    :D

    yes, which makes the continued calls by some for more power creep to be just that much more foolish - "here, let's get a bunch of cites to finally power up the crew whose value has stayed stable for years...AND NOW MOAR BIGGER CREW"


    ahem - thanks as always for the info Shan! :)

    I really hope that this card stays with those stats. It is great to get a card that I both want to own and want to play! For a long time Braxton, Gary Seven and Burnham were in a league of their own with a spread in the hundreds between even Braxton and Burnham. If this new Saru is the new Braxton he will be a peg ahead that they will backfill with characters going forward.

    To be honest I'm not even sure that 200 points is enough. Braxton has been in the lead for so long that the counterfactual of regular envelope pushing over two years would likely have us a lot higher if it had been done correctly. I'm still salty that in recent memory they have released unplayable cards that I want to own (but what's the point in getting cards if you will never use them).

    Save your citations folks!

    Why reviewing stats?
    You guys don t want regular 12h voyages? 😩

    DB/TP hadn t don t much and not even regular/constant power creep
    over the past years, so i see the new Saru as the new Professor Sato, that came out 3 years ago and had a huge DIPbase lead over 2nd. Now Saru has as much of a lead on voyages stats over 2nd. Don t see any issue here.🤗

    It will make TP BIG MONEY and a huge revenue increase on event packs and offers.🙂

    EDIT: If stats gets nerfed, you‘ll lose „some“ bucks(for event packs)
    from me(and others)

    Going to ask for a double check on Human Saru's stats from Shan, please. A voyage lead that large would be a huge departure.

    It reminds me of the timelines originals. People didn't like it so DB/TP stopped. Then you started bringing it up with Ben and we got Chekov. People didn't like power creep so it slowed down. Then some people started to complain here about lack of power creep and now we get power creep on steroids.

    I mean it's good that they are listening I guess. This does feel a little dramatic as if they want to stoke a rebellion though. I still solidly believe that this is a good move, though I would have preferred to see 10 cards go up by 20 each, if only so that there would have been 10 cards worth hunting down and this would have increased the chances that everyone will get cards that they both like and use.

    With just 10% starbase bonuses Gary released 56 points ahead of FOB. Braxton released 35 points ahead of Gary. Saru is 202 points ahead of Braxton. Definitely the biggest leap since Voyages have been in game. There's precedent with base crew like Sato, Tribble, Culber, Bones, but this would be the first time for such a large voyage gap.

    Not speaking to whether it's good or bad, would just like to make sure the stats are correct.

    In Engineering is a thread about the problem. Always when they add new crew they appear and disappear out of vault. Fixes the day after.

    Keeping things in perspective (and making sure my joke is given proper framing), I am reminded of Spock and Valeris' exchange in Undiscovered Country:

    SPOCK: History is replete with turning points, Lieutenant. You must have faith.
    VALERIS: Faith?
    SPOCK: That the universe will unfold as it should.
    VALERIS: But is this logical? Surely we must...
    SPOCK: Logic? ...Logic is the beginning of wisdom, Valeris, not the end.

    I'm taking a zen approach to power creep: it will happen and the cits I've used in the last few months (for both my Braxton and RS&K) were not wasted because I will continue to have good, strong crew. I would encourage everyone to think along similar lines.

    Though I would say I'd like a break or two from the bloodbath events...
