When do you create relationships?

We created relationships whenever a new character comes up from the Legacy deck. Would we create one when we use the leftover starter character (the Generalist, of course). Do we create them on the first game they're used, or did we do it right doing it when they come out?

Re: How do [SPOILER] work?
You create a relationship between a new character (without name) and a named character.

A character that was never used is a new character.

Btw, you should spoil titles like this: SPOILER #MONTH, this case SPOILER FEBRUARY or SPOILER.

This is correct. An implication that wasn't immediately clear to our group was that this means that anyone you played up until that month will *never* have a relationship between each-other - only new characters will be able to form relationships with your "Q1" squad.

You're not the first. I don't think they'll make that big a difference though. We lucked out and didn't use the Scientist until after the relationships were introduced. So we were able to create a Researcher/Scientist co-worker relationship. Which is awesome, but in some games wasn't really all that useful. It all comes down to the cards.

Our very first (4p) game we played with the Scientist. We lost. We decided that the Scientist should be swapped out for the Generalist. When we hit the relationship rules, it went something like this:

1) Hmm.. co-worker with Researcher and Scientist could be OP
2) Checking language again... says... 'New Character'...
3) Nooooooooo
