So I typed up this cute question about T’Pol giving a bonus for T’Mir without, ya know, actually reading the post and seeing you already covered it.

I didn’t read and jump the gun?  Shocked, I know!

Anyway, since I have the first post and squatting rights on the first question, I shall amend and ask a new one.

What, exactly, is a “Laborer Spock”?  Is he working in the West Virgina Cole-mines?  Is he in hour 33 of a painful birth?

Yay for Arex!

This is the first event in a while (I think) with all new crew. Can’t wait!

I’m assuming Spock from City on the Edge of Forever.

LOL Is this Arex:

???

The artwork looks awful and as simple as drawn by a five year old. It consists only of 4 colors LOL. It is okay for a 60 years series but not for nowadays standards. Please don’t mix these **** cards further with the real ST chars. Has to look silly if I man a shuttle with this monster among Picard, Dax and Kirk.

The good thing, I’ll absolutely sit ALL events out where these cards can be won.

That’s Arex. No idea what DB’s art for him will look like, but TAS characters have been being requested since the game launched.

He is from the animated series which is cannon by the way. But you do what you want. See you in a couple of weeks

Yowch! T’Mir sounds cool. Would love the new Spock but my chances of getting a 5* are very slim.

Arex!!!???

No, no Nope!!

How about we push for versions of Scotty as a “variant crew” since he hasn’t ever had an event, and James Doohan did Arex’s voice?

Yeah, that’s been my one concern with bringing characters from TAS into the game. I really, really, really (x 1000) hope they go for a more realistic depiction of Arex, a la:

If they make him look more like this, I’m 100% on board. If they for some stupid reason go for a 2-dimensional cartoonish portrait, the results would be disastrous. I think a majority of people who said on the forums that they’d quit the game when Animated Series characters were added would actually warm up to the idea with a 3D real-life interpretation of them… but if not, those same people would be a lot more likely to leave in droves.

But what am I worried about? It’d be silly to think that DB would do such a thing. (Right? It’s silly, right…? Please tell me it’s silly.)

His art was revealed at Vegas. He’ll fit in fine.

All well and good T’Pol being bonus crew because of T’Mir, but will T’Mir count as a bonus crew of T’Pol in the future??

If not, it makes me wonder why I would want her at all if her base and prof are not top of the range. Just another medicore, very-unlikely-to-be-bonus-crew clogging up your slots. (I hear they have an ointment for that…)

LoL it is a series for little children. I don’t care if it is canon or not. Don’t think it fits in the game because it is silly to mix real characters with this children cartoons. But that is just my opinion. I’m happy if you like it. Go for it smile

+1 But:
If he would look like this, would it still count as canon?
