Event Name: Resistance
Event Type: Hybrid Event : Faction Event followed by an Expedition Event
Event Crew: Assimilated Janeway 5* (New), Admiral Picard 4* (New) and Riley Frazier 4* (New)
Event Dates: Thursday 05/25 until Tuesday 05/30
Phase 1 End Time: Sunday 05/28 at Noon ET (16:00 UTC)

Event bonus crew: These exact event crew, and the Borg Queen, provide the best bonuses, but all crew with a Borg trait and all versions of event crew provide some.

My previous edit was incorrect! It has now been confirmed that crew with Borg trait WILL provide a bonus. My apologies for the false alarm!

Some non FF stats

Assimilated Janeway
FE 1/5 level 100
CMD 497 +(107-196)
SEC 345 +(64-158)
SCI 821 +(99-369)

Admiral Picard
FE 1/4 level 100
CMD 260 +(203-378)
DIP 468 +(233-436)
SCI 220 +(57-165)

Riley Frazier
FE 1/4 level 100

CMD 310 +(38-79)
DIP 465 +(177-361)
SCI 272 +(147-312)

And some answers:

- The threshold rewards are correct, and are by design
- The only change to tickets is the fact that there is no longer a time limit of 1 hour. Using a new ticket will remove the exhaustion effect from your crew. Reset remains the same, tickets will reset with a new day.
- There are Chronitons in the rewards because: most players like Chronitons and find them useful! smile
- The VP Bonus is a multiplier. That is all that I may say.
- The mechanic regarding criting on a rare reward node has not changed, once it has been achieved the rare reward is obtained, the star and the reward will disappear. This will reset when a new ticket is used. So it will indeed be very beneficial to use crew providing a VP bonus on those specific nodes.

Think you. While expedition is technically “new” to the format, I guess I expected a whole new type of event that was completely different. Guess it was only rumors that we would get fleet vs fleet and ship battles would be a part of it some how. Hopefully Janeway looks good.

Will Admiral Picard be the was-previously-imaginary version from Future Imperfect, with his delightful little goatee, or some new timeline version we haven’t previously seen?

Sounds great! Well done to the people who called the Assimilated Janeway 5* - you were spot on!

Also nice to see 2 new 4* for the final event - I can’t wait smile

There is almost no point in spending time boosts or dilithium in the Faction portion since that VP will easily be dwarfed by the cheap VP generated in the Expedition portion, especially since there is an American holiday on Monday.

An expedition event over 2 working days; good luck to the unemployed. I certainly won’t have time for that Shame, I had already started levelling admiral Janeway and the rewards look great. But if there is an american holiday on that monday it seems pointless. That is a huge advantage for American players

Well, thanks for not starting Phase II on Saturday, at least. I don’t know if I could handle that much Expedition. wink

On the positive side: The new crew sounds enticing (more so than the Contagion event, which I find kind of meh, except for the additional star on Her Majesty). Hope the artwork is decent.

How will Expedition Tickets from threshold rewards work?

Will we be expected to hold threshold rewards till phase 2 so as not to waste any tickets? Currently hybrid Faction/Galaxy events don’t work very well together since in order to compete efficiently you must hold rewards till phase 2 in order to use Chronitons effectively. This reduces the player’s ability to level and fuse event crew during the faction portion of the event.

I’m glad they chose Riley, solid episode and she should provide some eyecandy to all the green, implanted, lens flared, decapitated, blind on one eye Borg we got so far.

No enthusiasm at all for Volunteer Borg Janeway, although I’m sure she’ll have a 1300+ stat and/or a 900 roll.

Very disappointing end to a Mega-Event that promised a lot: at least another hybrid type adds a little interest.

Thank you, DB, for what sounds like a GLORIOUS event! I’ve been wanting an Expedition-Faction hybrid event for a long time. And thank you for not putting an existing 4* in the rank rewards this time. Very much appreciated.

The concerns I hope you’ll address are:
- In galaxy-hybrid events, we have to delay redeeming rewards until phase 2 in order to use all those chroniton rewards. Will that also be a problem with Expedition tickets? I feel like this would be solved by switching the order of the phases to put the faction event last, but I’m hoping you already have a different solution for this event. The big problem with waiting to redeem rewards is that the chroniton rewards are intermingled with transmissions and crew.
- Is the new Admiral Picard from the episode “Future Imperfect”, or is it a non-canon Picard? This is a big concern for some of us.

I hope this will be a good capstone to this month of events. We fans appreciate how you have tried to put together a big epic Borg month, but at the halfway mark it has started to become tedious and I’ve grown tired of farming polyalloys, interlinks, relays, and microconnectors.

Sounds like a marvelous event! Can’t wait for it. I really hope Admiral Picard is the same Admiral Picard from Future Imperfect.
