    Lefler and Barclay. Both Innovators. Loving the crew for the event.

    I wish I had Mirror Cochrane, would make for a great bridge setup with Barclay!

    Lots of First Contact crew in the game, I wonder if we'll see a "The Line Must Be Drawn Here" collection at some point. :)

    Who is Rurigan?

    Luau Q Voyage Rank 29
    Straal Voyage Rank 73
    Sisko(last minute replacement) 110
    Zimmerman Rank 13
    Rurigan Rank 24

    The 5* Voyage ranks have certainly improved in this mega. I wonder what Data would have been.

    He's from the DS9 episode "Shadowplay" and, I have to say, he fits the storyline fantastically.

  • I very much agree with Pilot. While I do think that Zimmerman isn't too bad, it's still noticeable. But some other new cards on the other hand... And it definitely affected way I play the game. I'm just nowhere near as hyped about these great cards like I did in the Barry Waddle mega (same kind of power but better art) and I think it is because of the art. It's disappointing to see some cards coming out looking like this especially because the Art has been absolutely gorgeous for the first half of this year. I really hope this is just a temporary fall of Quality and we'll see some flawless art like Caldos IV Crusher or Carlos Data.
  • Awesome art on Rurigan but horrible stats(even when considering his higher profs) on Barclay. Light and Shadow. :|

    He's a 4* we get FF who's in 2 collections. I don't care what his stats are.

    Good for you. So: „many collections = OK to have crap stats“. Interesting.
    I prefer both combined(good stats+collections). 🤗

    There's at least some canon justification for Barclay being this bad:

    * The way he behaved in the movie, completely fanboying over a historic figure and being oblivious to Cochrane's feelings, he barely deserves to have a diplomacy skill at all.
    * His engineering contributions to the repair is something schoolchildren were capable of in the 24h century.

    Fanboy Barclay is long overdue! He was hilarious in that movie!

    What if I told you not every single nit needs to be picked literally to death?

    Who is Rurigan?

    I recognized him after reading the description on the Crew Pop Up. He was the guy on DS9 who had created the holographic village, with the holographic people that were generational.

    Also, similar skills to Mission Specialist Lefler, the other (already existent) SR event crew. Not much of a use on his own event

    Lefler is a better ENG+DIP

    FC Barclay has a slight advantage on DIP+ENG. But is already behind a 2/5 Luau Q on DIP alone.

    Good gauntlet crew for the new players.
    I don't have Lefler yet.

    I like the Barclay art. I could tell exactly what moment he was from.

    He's a 4*. I'm not going to use him after his event even he has the best stats for any 4* in the game. Sure better stats would be nice, but it won't change how I use him. So I'd much rather focus on collections where he can provide value.

    I completely agree. any 4* = FFE and freeze. I don't care what the stats are as I "might" only use them if they pull for an event.
    Sir, I protest! I am NOT a merry man!

    17 event packs, 9 Leflers, 5 Barclays, 3 Zimmermans, 1 Au Natural Phlox, 1 Okona, and 1 Temporal Prisoner Chakotay.

  • I always find it odd when the 4* doesn't even get used in its own event (fan-boy Barclay not needed at all)

    His stats are too similar to Zimmerman. If you have Zimmerman you're not using Barclay. If you're not one of the 1500(+ packs) who have Zimmerman, then Barclay is probably seeing more use.
  • (HGH)Apollo(HGH)Apollo ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'm not using Barclay and I don't have Zimmerman. I've used either Q or Lefler this entire time. Barclay is still a work in progress and he might get some work in a few hours when I finish him.

    Save the chrons, he doesn’t do anything. Lefler is better than him and has almost all of his traits.
    Let’s fly!
  • W.W. CarlisleW.W. Carlisle ✭✭✭✭✭
    I figured as much. He's freezer fodder anyway. Nice addition to the crew pool and he gives me +1 to a couple collections.

    I find that as I have just passed 133,000 Points, that Lefler carried this thing. MAYBE got into double digits of her not being the top choice for Crafting? Second place is Burnham. over half of the ten-twenty that Lefler was not the first option.

    This Burnham:

    I immortalized Broccoli and have Q at 4/5. Those two do all the work. Lefler hasn't really mattered to me.
  • IkritIkrit ✭✭✭
    So Barclay's 5* Makeshift Component has a Dip stat of 2+(15-85). It bothers me when 5* items give so little to stats (especially when others give 100 to 2 stats).

    Unless it's a reference to how poorly his attempt to chat up Cochrane, using this item as an icebreaker, went, then I'm okay with it.
