So it's the same game, with new characters? I always hoped there would be new missions more than just adding characters. My feelings on the game right now are that this mission is complete, give me some more.

i too am disappointed if only crew. thinking about the roles pandemic expansion introduced, i can see how getting new characters can be good for replayability but we definately need more than characters to keep the game fresh. my hunch is there will be more than these characters. also looking at original description of game: This product is designed as a non-collectible, non-blind, all-in-one-and-done game, but is built upon the "expandable" board game model meaning that down the line, new missions and Crew Members will be made available for folk to play other "episodes"! obviously they could release separate mission pack but i have feeling they'll do combo to judge sales and see whether more expansions will be profitable. perhaps it's wishful thinking of my part lol

It seems these are all designed to beef up the ship combat aspect of the game, I think. I suspect Scotty has a once per turn as an action repair the enterprise a click ability. Sulu will probably have some ability like once per turn exert once to increase your skill check by one. Chekov will have a 'stay of the ship and be useless' ability.

guesses on skills:
Scotty: Engineering, Transportation.
Sulu: Stealth, Combat
Chekov: Transportation. ?

If Scotty gets double transportation and Chekov gets the engineering then it's gonna be a frickin crime.

I like this game but after about a dozen or so plays I could use a few new missions ...

Its almost like they designed the game with 7 characters (after all how could scotty not be in the base game) and then said, "hey lets take out three characters and sell them as an expansion!!"

cmon ... lets have some new missions!!

I think they missed out "....and to make as much money as possible "in the final game description? No suprise though, it is a Clix system.

Some mugs will pre-order it though (like me!). shake

After only 3 plays I already long for new missions - come on getting new missions out seems rather easy to produce...

Having only miniatures in the expansion makes it a guaranteed DONT BUY for me

I was contemplating this game but yea, this expansion is a disappointment.

3 Figures is a booster pack, hardly an expansion.
