Just wanted to have a post to say how much I love voyages. I complain fairly often about DB, and more/better explanations would have been really helpful, but this new feature drops a pile of stuff including honor, replications rations & chronitons for free! I’m not really sure I understand why people are so angry at DB over this.

That said, I’m still angry at you, DB, for not giving me any of those good deals on 10x premium pulls, so don’t think you’re getting me back as a paying customer unless you send some good deals my way.

Thanks DB for the 10 10x premium pull for $10 deal. I’ve renewed my monthly card.

Don’t worry, it’s too good to be true right now.  You can go back to being angry with them when they nerf the rewards or increase purchase price to refill anti-matter.

Amen.  I think they’ve been great.  It’s basically been free gear, honor, chrons, replicator rations, etc.  There is obviously a learning curve to it.

Have to agree.

Ran my first one over night and wasn’t impressed, but after running another two I’m very happy with them.

Still some bugs, but a real help in levelling crew in the chrons you can get

I’m also a fan!

There’s still to understand a bit how it all works, but it’s a flashy and mildly entertaining new tool that gives good rewards :-D

And any new way of getting chroniton and honour is a winner, in my book.

I was skeptical of the new mode when I heard about voyages being like shuttle missions but they are not the same and after trying it I am very happy with how voyages turned out as they are fun as well as rewarding.

Good job DB

I still love this new feature. To me, voyages feel like a star trek game more than anything else. The log can be a little repetitive, but that’s expected. It also comes up with some funny things like androids with stomach cramps that I think make it worth checking once in a while anyway.

As for the lack of communication concerning the way voyages function, I think the fun part is figuring out how my crew and ship stats affect the voyage length. It’s part of what’s keeping me engaged. They give us plenty of data to examine to see how we can try to improve our performance the next time. If this is intended (as I hope it is) I would have liked DB to maybe make this clearer because the lack of communication is, I think, what’s caused a lot of negativity about the voyages. Obviously there are still bugs that need to be fixed, as I’ve had to immediately recall voyages where the featured skill switched after I launched, and I can’t get the correct antimatter bonus for my ship sometimes, but I am still extremely satisfied with my experience with voyages so far.

Boy, I coulda written this exact post myself, right down to the special offers debacle.

I agree - love voyages, still boycotting the game with my wallet. Congrats DB on finally managing to go two steps forward, and like only a half step back. Progress!

I would love them more if the gold/silver star stat wouldn’t change after you chose your crew.

Hear hear, and I’m hoping against hope there’ll be no nerf to come with regard to the chroniton rewards, they’ve made such an instant improvement to my satisfaction with gameplay in general.  Until now, honestly I’ve felt like I was never going to catch up to equipping all my crew - the crowd of characters I want to keep but have never been able to even move past level one yet, has been growing every week, and it’s usually been all I can do to add a couple of tiers to whoever’s bonus for the coming event, and maybe complete a rare for cryo to make room.  Since the voyages started the extra chrons have let me make some real progress on characters who’ve been waiting their turn for a long time, and look at new crew as potential assets, rather than just sentimental favourites who’ll never be able to contribute much in game terms.

I also want to say that voyages have added a much appreciated amount of game play.  The strategy is great, please don’t scale back the rewards or cost.  Thanks DB for the crew slots as well.  With a mega event full of essentially all brand new crew we really needed this as a player base.  Keep up the positive improvements.

I 100% concur with all of this except i assume the intent was to ask that DB not increase (rather than not scale back) the cost, which i also stand by even though i don’t necessarily intend to often (if ever) spend dil on this feature

It hasn’t changed for me, or not that I’ve noticed.
We should investigate this with pics and evidence.

You are correct Skizzy, sorry for the confusion, I messed that up, don’t want DB to scale back the rewards or increase the dil refill rates.  Thanks for catching that.  About the only problem I have had is not getting the ship bonus AM once voyage actually starts, otherwise have had no bugs and pretty much running them non stop since released.
