I’ve been making my way through the Cadet Challenges bit by bit; got to the last mission in Ex Astris, hoping to get Just One More Reward. Cleared out everything bar the impossible 2nd sci node (boo!) and the first med node. I finally got around to levelling Bones to 100, wanting to exploit his Resourceful-ness to make an attempt on that damn Med node.

Not easy to get that rare reward, for sure. Assuming a crit amount of 130%, that means Bones has to combine his base of 213 with his trait bonus (90) with a roll from 191 to his max roll of 196; I make that odds of 0.03% or so to get a crit success. And that’s before the Crit decides if you get the rare or not!

So I dived in, expecting this to take a month or 2 or 10 of the weekly tix.

With my level 100 Bones, I got the rare 2 runs in :D

Ok so seeing your luck made me want to take my McCoy out of the vault and give it another go for that node. Last ticket of the day, he rolls a 191 and I crit that node AND get the prize. Color me surprised. Back in the vault he goes. Now I need to get that last science drop.

you can’t. no crew rolls high enough to crit that node. Pazlar comes the closest, but her max roll is not enough.

Primary reason why I’m not bothering with Bones yet and why he’s on ice for now. Second reason is that there’s frankly no point to clearing all the stars anyway except for completionist tendencies (which I do have to some degree). There certainly aren’t any in-game benefits to it.

If the SCI node is fixed (add resourceful trait to it and then Pazlar will crit it) and some benefit is added to having all stars cleared, I’ll revisit it.

Grats Captain! I’m looking forward to another spare crew slot myself.

With the right trait, Recovering Spock and Acting Ensign Crusher would have a chance to crit too. Oh for a trait on that damn Sci node!

+1 No need to even try and finish that mission until, or more likely if, they ever fix the science node.
