    I think it's an objective fact at this point that the recap packs for this mega event will be the best since the TOS mega event in 2019.

    Concur. I look forward to sleeping.

    Do you guys think that the juicy recap packs will mean there'll be less competition in the events because the chances of getting the good golds in the packs is better? Or more competition in the events to make sure everyone gets a decent amount of copies of the good golds, so that the pack pulls will finish them off rather than be 1/5s?

    I have Jodmos at 3/4 so I'm only aiming for top 5000, but I don't want to be kicked down too far again like in the Dexa event & miss out. I guess this week's Galaxy might be a good indicator of how much grind will be required.

    Beautiful lighting and texture work on the new Burnham art, but I think her left eye is just a little too close to the center of her face. At least enough to trigger my visual OCD...

    I’m going to hoard my dilithium and smash recaps for sure. Might even grab a couple of $4.99 skirmish packs for the dilithium.

    I have one star on Dexa and two on Human Saru from the events. Probably won’t finish too 1500 in the galaxy or skirmish so I’ll hope for good luck.

    I try in the event so it requires less stars to finish in recaps.

    It is just the effect of a 3D image being shown as 2D.

    Edit: is it the left or right eye.

    Edit: After seeing the event page on the Ap, it looks more like a shadow problem. The shadow looks like it is part of the eye.

    That is my strategy as well. There is probably a mix of strategies for recap packs, but I suspect ours is prevalent.

    People go hard on skirmishes to get honor but I think it is worth it to try. If not Jodmos should pop up some time in a portal or voyage.

    Yeah I think that's how I have him already from pulls and/or voyage drops, so I could wait some more, but really if he's right here in front of me I figure I should give it a crack and finish him off, especially when I'm at capacity for slots (again :neutral:). I might be the only one excited for Klingon Torres this week for the same reason, if I can grab 2* from the ranked rewards and the 1* from community she's finished & frozen as well.

    If only we could get a mega full of reruns & flashbacks so I can catch my breath...! :D

    I'm just happy they made the Excelsior a 5* ship. I was almost convinced they were going to make it a 4* one and really mess things up. Can't wait to see what it looks like!

    and finally a ship with transwarp that isn't Borg! now, if only we could have voyage ships automatically match traits so we don't have to scroll through alllllllllllllll of them every time...and/or newer schematics in the arena rewards...

    Um, how are the Skirmish classes going to work? There is a 4* and a 5*, but there is a 3* instead of a 2*. No hull bonus in the lower class? The 4* would eat the 3* for lunch if both are maxed. It doesn't matter to me. I play on Epic these days, but the newer players need something.

    The only thing the newer players are concerned with is whether they can compete in elite or epic. If not, they will just do normal(?)

    Basically, trying to rack up the most points they can for a round.

    My 3rd account I started near the beginning of December was able to compete with a level 9 bounty on epic. Of course, I had made purchases in it which helped getting schematics. Now that I am not spending money, it will take some time to get a ship to level 10, and be one I can compete with in Epic. The bounty works well for me with 4* Rura Penthe Kirk. I think I went with a 1* Killy and a 4* Talas. I think Killy is the only one who is no5 equipped. But I do think last time one of the specific event bonus crew provided an early atttack boost.

    The blue accents on the secondary hull are all wrong, if this is the in-game model. Otherwise, pretty good from what they've showed us.

    You mean the "Hanger Bay Doors" above the Deflector Dish? I think several versions of the model were made for different ships in the movies and shows. They may have looked at the wrong model.

    The intel deal has popped up early. What happens to the intel if the event hasn’t started?

    I am sorry about that. I believe the Intel will need to be added once the event actually starts.
    If you've purchased it please submit a ticket and let me know the number so I can take care of it :)

    Actually it looks like we will take care of it all tomorrow before the event starts.
