The Borg Queen will be my first FF 5* thanks to the $25 deal, and just this morning I finished equipping her (yea!).  All my other legendaries will probably sit at 1* until the game closes. except maybe by then I’ll have enough honor to buy one star.  So how about I put the Borg Queen in a ship?  Wow, 325% damage…...if the ship has Position status.  Okay, which ships do I have at a decent level that grant Position?  Oh, none of those give Position.  Which ships do I have that grant Position that I would need to level? Oh, none of them.  Well how many 5* ships grant Position status anyway, if there are some (if not, must be a cool Borg one coming sometime)? Checks full ship menu…oh, there is one: NX-01 Enterprise.  I have 0/600 schematics toward building it.  So basically only whales have it at a respectable level for actual use.

Well played, DB. You gave us all a high-star legendary without having her completely change the space meta over the period of her release and you incentivized many people to give the NX packs another look from now on whenever they return to the shop.  Well played.

The arena rewards aren’t that great anyway, the bright side is with a small amount of effort and $25 you get a 5/5 character. I hope they continue this trend in the months to come.

I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or actually complimenting DB with that final paragraph…

Arena sucks, she will work well on a defiant or cube 4* for clearing missions.  Nx didn’t even have positioning on release, they added it after the fact due to complaints about 5* position triggers.

And even that’s meaningless since very, very few even have the NX-01 let alone maxed.

Positioning needs to be added to another 5* ship or the NX-01 needs to be more readily a available. Or just change they Queen’s trigger.

You’re giving too much planning credit to DB.  I still maintain they’re creating characters, ships, and missions in isolation.  Half the time these contradictions aren’t even noticed until players look at the data.  The team creating the Queen thought this would be a cool special ability for her, so they added it.  They never even bothered to check which ships were possible to use with it.  It’s the same reason we had impossible nodes in cadet missions.  The mission designers built mission requirements that made sense for the mission story and never bothered to check if there were cadets that could actually pass the requirement.

Actually, it does kinda make sense since we met her there lol.
