DB, if you keep creating noncanon characters, I will stop playing the game.

Non-canon characters serve one purpose only: Diluting the character pool meaning you’ve a reduced chance to FF existing crew and will need to buy more packs to do so.

This is true if you dismiss all non canon crew on principle.  Some people would say the same about Voyager crew, or Enterprise crew, or sitcom star crew.

It’s almost as if different players have different tastes and preferences.

I don’t mind them as long as they’re plausible.

I’m still waiting for the USS Premonition to show up.

Google it if you aren’t familiar.

This comparison doesn’t really suit, because we are playing a ST game which was built on real existing chars from the beginning of all pre JJ series. The made up chars have nothing to do with ST except their names.

Lol neither does the Plotline. Its a crashing of timelines past future, etc. The premise of the game as it were.

On the subject of factions, I am surprised the Gorn and Breen haven’tbeen included.

7 week Gorn mega-event to follow this Borg nonsense.

If you’re gonna tap the CCG, I have to suggest Dukat, Gowron, and Brunt of Borg

Ahem…it’s a fictional series.  They’re ALL made up.  You’re just quibbling over which ones were created by people you happen to like.

He probably likes characters that were portrayed in an iconic show that may have had a big impact on his life. There were lots of writers on Star Trek.

He probably doesn’t like characters that have no relevancy to Star Trek outside of having the same likeness and name. I feel the same way.

This doesn’t refute my point at all.  It’s still arbitrary classification based on taste and preferences.

Like someone said earlier, there are people who don’t like all kinds of classes of characters within the game.  If non-cannon characters are your biggest hangup, congratulations, there’s less than a dozen of them.

I happen to dislike characters that require a lot of materials to level or are particularly weak for the competitions within the game; but I didn’t create a whine thread over Icheb being one of the most costly characters to level in the game while only having a slightly above average engineering base.

Unfortunately for me, there are hundreds of characters in this game that don’t meet my criteria to level and collect.

For a fandom built around “Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations”, some of y’all are conspicuously rigid.

There’s currently less than 10 non-canon characters out of over 370.
