Just got this through on an email from DB.

Assimilated La Forge looks very cool. I don’t know much about the Icheb character though (someone said he was on Voyager I think).

I don’t remember La Forge being assimilated in TNG/First Contact so I’m guessing it’s a hypothetical Geordi pulled from an alternate timeline that DB have created for the purposes of this game.

They wouldn’t have to create an alternate timeline, even: remember “The Federation is gone! The Borg is everywhere!” Riker from Parallels, and it looks like it’s just him and Worf up on the bridge, with a ship that blows up after a single shot from the Riker-captained Enterprise that finally figured out primary-Worf’s problem?

The other obvious choice would be somewhat DB-created: this Geordi could be from a timeline where Data did go through with what Lore tried to get him to do in Descent, and it actually worked versus killing Geordi.

Icheb was indeed on Voyager.

Three characters I couldn’t care less about. Oh, well. At least I can get another Queen.

Very interesting, great points, thanks!

Was the Parallels episode where Riker was commanding the Future Enterprise with the 3rd Nacelle? I don’t think it was (I think that was in “All Good Things…”) so I really need to go back and watch the TNG series again!

  I don’t know much about the Icheb character though (someone said he was on Voyager I think).

Yep, he appeared in almost a dozen episodes, sometimes quite prominently. He was rescued from a damaged Borg ship and kinda became Seven’s protégé; he should be a good SCIENCE. I personally think they should have killed off Harry Kim and replaced him with Icheb who was a lot more interesting. (They could have killed off Neelix and Chakotay while they were at it, and nobody would really notice if Tuvok went either).

Geordi is indeed a fake. I personally don’t like fakes and will airlock him regardless of his stats, but horses for courses.

Was the Parallels episode where Riker was commanding the Future Enterprise with the 3rd Nacelle? I don’t think it was (I think that was in “All Good Things…”) so I really need to go back and watch the TNG series again!

The third nacelle was indeed from All Good Things.
They’re both great episodes though, two of my favourites in fact. Riker did command some of the Enterprises seen in Parallels, with Worf as his first officer. -  I hope we’ll get that Commander Worf (in red) one day!

Yeah, Geordi doesn’t look bad, but as nonsensical as it would be for the Borg, I was hoping there would be a VISOR somewhere in there!

I would have preferred an event with ensign lynch, lieutenant hawk, Tommy gun Dixon and “assimilate this” worf crew.  All canon too.

Well, we don’t know what they’ll use for a 2* in the threshold rewards (none of the event crew have cadet versions), so keep hoping…

Kinda surprised to hear a couple people saying they like the Borg Geordi artwork, as I think it’s pretty horrendous. But, hey…

Lol, I love how this thread is half visual.  I personally think that the Geordi art is a shame because it’s super generic and, if you’re making up crew, why not make them look awesome?  New, Different? I think “One” came out amazing and lot of that is due to the fact that he’s not drab sepia tones like Geordi is here.  However, I guess I don’t think it’s bad because I have a 23rd century Martok in my crew who I see every day… wink
