I know there is a discussion thread about the new version but I wanted to start a new thread where we could keep track of the cost levels for adding new non-VIP crew slots as an quick reference.  I will update this post as people reply with the costs. So far I have only unlocked the first five.

1. Level 1 - 5 Slots - 250,000 credits
2. Level 2 - 5 Slots - 750,000 credits (total of 10 additional slots)
3. Level 3 - 5 Slots - 350 dilithium (total of 15 additional slots)
4. Level 4 - 5 Slots - 700 dilithium (total of 20 additional slots)
5. Level 5 - 5 Slots - 1,050 dilithium (total of 25 additional slots)
6. Level 6 - 5 Slots - 1,750 dilithium (total of 30 additional slots)

Seems very pricey to me, but maybe that’s because I’m VIP 13 and so 5 slots are meh to me.

Am I blind, but is the only way to gain access to added crew by maxing out your available crew first?

I guess it’s not a huge deal, but it’s annoying that you can’t invest your credits or other currency before you reach your crew limit.

As it stands if I want to increase my maximum capacity before I actually reach it, I have to fill my roster with a bunch of people I plan to airlock first.

Yet another oddly counter-intuitive design choice.

I agree. It would be nice to purchase the extra slots before your roster is full. But at least DB is listening to the players. I’m glad they are allowing us the option to buy slots with credits. I am, however, curious to see how expensive they will be when your only option is to use dilithium.

Is this live?  If the credits cost like this continues, I’m guessing the next 5 will be 1.5-2m.  I’ll be able to get the first 10 for sure but we’ll see after that.  Though I’m not sure if I’ll need more than 10 of those unless it’s starts raining 4* or better crew.  I don’t really care to keep anything 2* or less.

Nor spake, nor moved their eyes;
It had been strange, even in a dream,
To have seen those dead men rise.

I’m assuming at some point in the mix, Merits show up, and then Dilithium (and/or some mixture of Credits/Merits/Dil).  It will be interesting to see exactly what costs are as people unlock them…

I’m VIP 13 also. It was nice getting 10 more slots because it means I can actually get new crew. I was stuck at 120 as it was

Absalom,

That threw me this morning too. But it’s true. You absolutely cannot buy new crew slots Before you max your current ones lol. Counter intuitive to me too

I agree. It definitely needs to be changed. What happens if you buy a pack to get a crew thinking you’ll just add slots when you get them and you discover, after the fact, that the cost is more than you can pay or save up before they are deleted?  The cost of the next upgrade should always be visible so you can plan accordingly. That’s part of why I started this thread.

+1. Also please make the get more crew button smaller so you can see 3+ crew in the window. Move the crew count 120/120 to the very top next to the close icon. Presto, more vertical space.

It would be nice if the window took up the entire screen (on iPad). You get get 2-3 more crew on the screen if it did.

I only airlock duplicates. I still need three 1-star crew, two 2-star crew and all but ten 5-star crew.  I have all of the 4-star crew that you can get through the regular premium portal plus Temporal Agent Seven and Ambassador Spock.  I don’t have any of the ones that are not in the premium portal mix such as Lore, Klingon Quark, etc.

I think the price is really cheap. I think it should be more expensive.
