    Hi Shan! I love that we are getting Mint Julep McCoy and Captain Burnham, but I have to ask... is Captain Burnham having the Augments trait and not her usual Xenoarchaeology trait an error and oversight?

    Sounds like an error, I will report it!

    Looks more like a Bloody Mary than a Julep, but great addition, either way!

    I don't see their stats on these announcements. Are they worth it?

    McCoy is a +1 Physician and +1 immortal if you aren't at 600 immortal yet. McCoy is also prone to get events recently, it seems.

    Shan is the base stats of skill 2 correct? Think it‘s a first for an legendary that bases of skill 1 and 2 are almost 500 points apart.

    Another unusual thing for the 1/5 stats, Skill 2 and Skill 3 are almost even.
    Maybe another indicator that base of Skill 2 is too low by accident?

    Love the Burnham but her stats are really bad. Wish we would stop getting these poor voyagers released.

    I’m as big of a TOS fan as the next Trekkie, but we just got a new Bones and a new Spock a couple weeks ago, seems too soon to get two more new ones IMO🖖

    At first I thought it was a tinted glass, but you can see at the top the glass is clear. Mint Juleps are usually clear to shades of yellow or yellow/green. Unless it is a Blackberry or Strawberry one. And, a Southron gentleman would only drink a Mint Julep Mint Julep. Not the trendy ones.

    Just a note about the part of your comment that I bolded... during the skirmish, I leveled up The Professor. His base stats for skills 2 and 3 are almost identical at 1/5, but he gets some separation as his fusion levels increase. It's obviously not the norm, but also not without precedent. (Of course, the Prof is a really old card, so read into that what you will.)

    These stats seem a bit fishy. They could be right, but it doesn’t seem in keeping with TP’s general operating strategy in recent months. As it stands, this card isn’t even good.

    Juleps are made with bourbon.

    @Steph loves Voyager @Prime Lorca [10FH] Grey is a popular color for military uniforms. The US Navy even had a short-lived grey uniform during WWII. I have two pair of Med. Dept. Shoulder boards in my militaria collection in the grey scheme.
    Starfleet has used grey before. Wesley's cadet uniform was grey. DS9 and 3 TNG movies used the grey shoulder uniform. There was a grey TMP uniform. Disco has just pulled it out again.

    @DScottHewitt I agree. That doesn't look too much like a julep. I'm a horse racing fan less than two hours from Churchill Downs and some of my ancestors came from Bourbon County, Kentucky. I even collect Derby glasses, though I don't drink. (Other than taking wine occasionally at communion. Sometimes, they are out of grape juice when they get to me in the back A/V table.)
    Well aged bourbon would give it a nice pale amber color with a tinge of green if a lot of mint was chopped up in it. Those don't look like mint leaves or stem either. That looks like a celery stalk to me. It has a wide stem and fine leaves. Mint is wider with a fine stem. Plus, where is the ice?
    I went digging. When McCoy makes his julep in "This Side of Paradise", he makes a "Georgia-style" julep. That calls for, sacrilege, cognac or peach brandy in place of the bourbon. It would make it darker, but not orange. Is this from that episode? Because it looked lighter and had lemon in it there. I'll have to rewatch if someone doesn't beat me to it.

    Oh, there are people now who drink "trendy" Mint Juleps with various kinds of berries.

    FWIW, the trailer for Discovery season 4 shows a significant improvement to the colour scheme of the uniforms.

    Putting in spoilers in case anyone really doesn't want to see it.

    Indeed, they look way too similar to me. The boots, the cut, the shoulder thingies... 32nd century Starfleet looks way too much like early 1940's German military. The picture @robownage posted looks better, but they kept the shoulder thingies and I can't see if they still have the boots. I think Gene Roddenberry made sure Starfleet didn't look like traditional military for a reason.

    They remind me of an USMC dress blue uniform (the collar), but in grey with an asymmetrical hem line. I would guess the boots and breeches are the more formal "Class A" and the shoes more duty uniform. The more militaristic shift probably ties in with the somewhat dystopian storyline. The German comment on the color isn't really accurate (see below). It is really more in line with CSA dress uniforms. The color, vertical stripe, cut, and breeches and boots seals it for me.

    Fun fact- German Feldgrau uniforms have a distinct greenish color that doesn't photograph well. It's a sage tone. In person, it is clear and the model paints out there capture it well. The German "grey" isn't really. You always mix green in the shadows and highlights when you paint them.
