    With Navaar as the gold, we're looking at Stream of Lives for the rerun.

    Not a bad hybrid. I remember it. I should do better this time around considering I need to thaw the 4*s and has Navaar at 80 1/5*.

    Probably not enough time to complete their jobs.
    I see the same symptoms at my work.

    Mine too. But if something optional can't be done correctly, maybe they should not be devoting the time and resources to it.

    Just want to say that I do appreciate WRG choosing for the holiday period one of the event types with a good degree of flexibility for players about when to take part.

    Why not a Xindi-Avian based on the skull seen in Enterprise and an artist's vision? Represent all the Xindi species and make a collection.

    Would be cool. There was a book where there was one Xindi Avian still alive.

    There are several non-canon TNG Mirror characters so I don't think a Xindi-Avian (once real but never depicted) would be far-fetched for the game.

    The Mirror TNG are from a series of comics. I have some of them. The 5* Dr. Pulaski is from a comic. She's wearing the early DS9/Voyager era uniform. We only ever saw her onscreen in the early TNG uniform, plus a few on offs.

    I agree with the sentiment, but I wish they had made this one a galaxy rather than skirmish. Skirmish is all about time-in-game. Whether you are aiming for high ranks or just honor accumulation, you've gotta put in the hours. There's no (legal) way to avoid it. With galaxy, you can clear thresholds and even rank for the 5* (if you have decent event crew) with just a few hours here and there. Ah well, happy holidays to all, and to all a good skirmish.

    Voq always counted as a variant of Tyler, but does Tyler count as variants of Voq?

    I believe he has in the past. But I have to ask...in what scenario is anyone using any variant of Ash Tyler other than the one that is featured crew as event crew in a Skirmish?

    If someone doesn't own Voq, or they want to use his variants to crew their ship. Seasoned players like us don't
    do that, but others may. There is a reason why variants are given event bonus ability. Did you really need to ask?

    It's week 4 of a mega event and you only need one featured crew - put Sahil on your ship. The only people who actually have an excuse to use a variant of Voq are those who are so new to the game that they couldn't score Sahil in this week's event but were lucky enough to get Tyler in a behold.

    I have no issue if someone wants to use a Voq variant...but do that in addition to one of the featured crew.

    Never was a fan of the TAS, which is why I've airlocked every copy of those cartoons I've ever gotten. And here we are, using one of them as a featured crew.

    It's honestly refreshing to see someone complain about characters from a show other than Discovery for a change.

    I can complain about Enterprise if you want :tongue:

    DIS is a lot better this season, in my opinion. Good pacing, and a real slow burn for the main arc. There are still some relics of bad decisions in previous seasons, but I'm starting to feel optimistic.

    That’s interesting. I am not liking this season of Discovery like I did the others. Curious if you are a Star Trek Picard fan. This seasons reminds me of that.

    You don't get an extra bonus for using a second bonus crew. You can use a voq variant if you want, but that should be because of his ship ability. I'm terms of event bonus, use a single featured crew and then your best ship battle crew for the rest.

    PIC had some cool ideas, and I liked the cast, but overall I wasn't a big fan. (I also barely remember much of it.)

    For me, one of the biggest issues with DIS S1-3 is the pacing. It always felt like it was in a rush, and there was so little time for build up or repercussions. Among friends, I've said that DIS really needs twice the episodes per season to tell the stories it wants. That would give it enough room to build up the story, as well as the sorts of character-building tangents that are both fun and let the main plot breath a bit.

    If DIS is rushed, PIC is edging towards warp. Without hyperbole, I think every episode of PIC could have filled the better part of an entire season. And that's ignoring backstory and flashbacks, which could provide the rest. There are individual scenes in PIC which could have been an entire episode B plots in TNG.

    But DIS S4 feels more consistent, slower paced, and with far more emphasis on a slow build. It's not perfect, the recent episode which tried to give justice to high-level negotiations and a cadet training mission was cramped, but overall it's doing much better. It also feels more character-driven, rather than stories relying so much on reactions to external forces.

    Where do you feel DIS S4 and PIC S1 align? I love hearing different perspectives.

    Interesting Discovery looks like it may not have another season. Because of losing Netflix backing which had allowed them do what ever they want.

    Now they are already selling the costumes from Discovery. But they could always wear the emperors new clothes😉

    As far as I know, nothing has been confirmed either way. Considering Picard, Lower Decks, Strange New Worlds and Prodigy are all being made without Netflix backing, it would be a bit of a leap to assume that Discovery leaving Netflix would suddenly leave Paramount without enough money to make a fifth season.

    As for selling costumes - are these the season 4 costumes belonging to the main cast? If so, that could be a bad sign for a season 5. If not, I wouldn't buy into what's being sold.
