Airlock help please for 1/4 crew

Hi,

with the influx of new crew through the mega event pull I need some crew space.
At least 3 have to be airlocked but more is even better.
My weak point is ENG at the moment.

All candidates are 1/4 and low level:

Klingon Quark
General Martok
KDF Gowron
Kurros
Subcommander T'Rul
Commander Dolim
Rura Penthe Reed
Captain Q
Waitress Ezri
Warship Chakotay
The President of Earth
Command Hologram
Tommy Gun Dixon
Dominion Dukat
Duchamps
Lal
Changeling Bashir
Temporal Agent Seven
Princess Jadzia
Forra Gegen
Automated Unit 3947

Thanks a lot for your advice!

Best regards
HP

    It's generally a safe bet to dump non-main-cast crew members, with a few exceptions. In your list, I'd personally suggest you can airlock: Kurros, Dolim, Gegen and APU 3947. There are several others who are borderline, but that's who I'd start with.

    Even though she's not main cast, I'd say keep Lal for now — her ENG is quite high for a 4*, although you'll of course need more stars on her to reap the full benefit.

    Among the best of the main cast crew, imo, are: Princess Jadzia, The President of Earth, Tommy Gun Dixon, and Klingon Quark (though he is absolutely awful to level).

    I'm sure others will chime in, but that's just a quick run-down. ;)


    Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

    My first advice is to keep those cards that align with your personal preference of characters, irrespective of anything else in the game - if you really like someone from a show/movie, they belong in your crew :)

    Beyond this, with respect to 4* characters, I lean now towards first keeping those that are members of one or more Collections. After this, I look for who has a large(r) number of Traits, as these will likely be used to define more Collections in the future.

    Eventually with power creep, plus your acquisition of more 5* crew in the future, I think you will come to find that the skills/abilities of current 4* crew are not very critical.

    Lal and Princess Jadzia are for sure keepers

    Klingon Quark -- a real pain to level and likely not worth it, but I like the character

    Rura Penthe Reed -- good for the arena

    Waitress Ezri -- she is super helpful to me and frequently an event crew

    Duchamps -- not easy to level, but main crew and even at level 70, he was my best diplomacy crew for a brief time (very brief and fully fused from the event)

    Changeling Bashir -- don't have him, but I understand that he is a great crew

    Temporal Agent Seven -- see above

    Princess Jadzia -- love her

    The only ones you REALLY can't afford to airlock are Bashir and Jadzia. Unless you'll get like thirty 5/5 they would be core of your Voyage crew. Rest are airlockable, even if main cast are less than non-mains. MAYBE keep T'Rul for Romulan Eng in case of another Romulan event.

    One thing and I hope it is not too late keep Dominion Dukat! - you will get him fully fused (as long as you daily login and claim rewards) in just over 2 months.

    The other ones I would keep for sure are Lal, Bashir, Reed, Jadzia, TA Seven - although if pressed and you have Drone Seven you could get away with airlocking (though you would lose an extra variant of her should she be event crew).

    2ndry cards I would try and keep hold of are:
    Duchamp, Quark, Waitress Ezri, President of Earth, Captain Q, Command Hologram, Chakotay, Dixon

    3rd Tier for possible future Romulan/ Klingon event bonus
    Martok, Gowron, T'Rul,

    So In sum go with what Data says as that leaves Dolim, Kurros, Gegen and AU3947

    Hi guys,

    the next round of airlocking of at least one 1/4:

    Antaak
    Commander Nevesa
    Edith Keeler
    Kazon Seska
    Kilana
    T'Mir

    Still my weakpoint is ENG.
    Any help is appriciated!

    Best regards

    Honestly you wouldn't loss much by airlocking all of them. If you play Gauntlet - keep Antaak. And may be useful in "all Klingon". That's it.

    ...

    Maybe Seska too (she Eng primary, though not exactly good and definitely not as 1/4).

    ...

    Nevesa is Romulan, Kilana IIRC may be useful for some nodes but not worth it as 1/4... T'Mir and Keeler have nothing going for them.

    Dump Keeler and Kilana for sure. Nevesa, Antaak, and T’Mir all feature in one collection, I think. But if you aren’t worried about collections, I agree with @al103 that Antaak is only one to keep - for an all Klingon gauntlet.
    Fleet: Starship Trista
    Captain Level: 95
    VIP Level: 12
    Unique Crew Immortalized: 525
    Collections Completed: Vulcan, Ferengi, Borg, Romulan, Cardassian, Uncommon, Rare, Veteran, Common, Engineered, Physician, Innovator, Inspiring, Diplomat, Jury Rigger, Gauntlet Legends

    I actually meant shuttles for Med on "all Klingon" bonus faction events... His traits are varied enough to hit bonus on Gauntlet even without his Klingon-ness.
    and T’Mir all feature in one collection,
    There are other ways to finish Vulcan collection than almost useless 2-skill.

    T'Mir isn't easy to level, but she is my best Vulcan command crew and I need Vulcan command for a node on a level, though I don't remember which now.

    It's not EP5-8 or CT I think, don't remember Vulcan nodes there. Meaning strong Com is unlikely to be needed for it.

    T'Mir is one of the crew who seem to be prevalent on all the 4* Borg Spheres I keep encountering in the upper echlons of the Captain division in Arena. I had airlocked her earlier and am just now starting to gather stars for her again, specifically for this reason. ;)

    Antaak --> a definite keep, has kinda unique skills (MED/SCI) for a Klingon, decent option for MED in gauntlet should you need help there.
    Commander Nevesa --> meh.
    Edith Keeler --> meh.
    Kazon Seska --> keep, if you are light on ENG then why consider ditching her? She's not that bad, when the game started she was one of the better 4* ENG options out there. :) She provides you with some ENG ... especially if you followed the advice to dump Gegen and APU3947 ... I use Gegen often on ENG/SCI voyages. You could have picked up stars for them on a voyage ... just keep all ENG crew for the time being, plenty of other options to airlock.
    Kilana --> keep, you need her to unlock a node (or have Weyoun FF/FE).
    T'Mir --> keep, good for Arena.

    Thirded or fourthed on keeping Antaak...with a 25% crit he can take out any other MED primary except maybe Defensive Phlox at 5%. I think I have also seen more than a few Klingon/Desperate/Geneticist gauntlets where he gets 65%.

    Hi,

    the next round of airlocking...
    All are 1/4 and level 1:

    Duchamps
    C.O.P. Founder Archer
    The president of Earth
    Stranded Odo
    Trader Odo
    Undercover O`Brian
    Defiant Commander Worf

    Any advice is appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards

    My O'Brien and President are frozen because I have better. Odo is event crew this week. Duchamps has Worf and Klingon for future events but is hard to level. I froze him, too. My Defiant Commander Worf is sitting at level 2 waiting for more stars, so I don't know if he is any good.

    Unlike David, I have O'Brien and President of Earth active, because I use them. Miles is employed in the Arena, and the PoE is used fairly often in Voyages. Stranded Odo can be very helpful, depending on who else you've got who can fill his skills. I don't use Trader Odo at all, really, but I do think he's cool.

    Duchamps is an utter pain to level, and hasn't been used except when Worf is event crew. I love his look, and I love Worf, but if you're short on slots, I'd say dump him for now and when you have room later (and the resources to level him), you can look to perhaps pick him up again. DC Worf, not as hard to level, but goes equally unused on my crew roster. I don't have an opinion about COP Archer, as he's never been a part of my motley band of heroes and villains.
