Greetings, Captains!

Sensing an opportunity, Apollo has swooped down from Pollux IV and returned to Earth, declaring that it is only he and his fellow gods who can deliver the Federation from the temporal anomaly crisis. Can you redirect Apollo’s benevolence towards the Ferengi Traditionalists, who are in need of a miracle, or the Gamma Quadrant by way of the Bajorans, who know how to speak to a god?

Interesting.  Thanks for sharing.

Could we get a look at the art either here or on FB?

Hmmm will CW Kirk do more or less clogging of the airlocks than Lwaxana did? i have actually seen a surprising number of people use him in the gauntlet…and this continues a very welcome streak of Kirk events, which there cannot be too many of!

I’m assuming that for a lot of people that care about CW Kirk, many will wind up disappointed that they will only have the chance at 2/3.  At the same time, most that will get a 3/3 Troi will already have her 3/3 from rewards not that long ago.

Feels like a missed chance at a new 3* but maybe that is just the perspective of someone who has both at 3/3 already.

If it’s standard reward structure, I agree.  I’d have done 2* Kirk for threshold and then 3* in rank.  Personally I have 3* Kirk and Troi FF, so I don’t really care myself.

The one possible worry is if DB puts 3 copies of 3* Kirk in Threshold rewards and removes the lowest 4* threshold as a result.  Then you’ll need to finish in the top 2000 to FF Kirk instead of the top 2500.

Heather, can we get the 1/5 stats for Goddess of Empathy Troi, since those numbers are of greater importance to more people than the 5/5 stats?

Thanx.  smile

Of course. Why wouldn’t she?

So Apollo seems like a male version of Edith Keeler with similar traits and good med roll. It’s good that he’s in packs as 1/4 is enough for the gauntlet. Kirk somewhat unremarkable.

Troi seems good, another 800 base DIP at 1/5 (probably) with a good med roll.

Probably safe to skip this one though, diplomacy is getting a bit overcrowded.
