Are the ‘Unexplored’ sides of the new system discs meant to be an odd purple colour rather than blue of the base game?

Makes it obvious what’s coming up in the stack...

I find that it’s only noticeable when you compare the old ones and the new ones side by side or when you are specifically looking for the difference. In a normal game, I don’t really notice the difference. Of course, if your eyes are keener then mine then drawing from the bottom of the decks is the commonly held solution.

goo It seems to me that the same color differentiation was true on at least one of the last two expansions, if not both. Therefore, it wouldn't have all that much of an impact if playing with all the systems, which we always do. (I just didn't mention the original change, it to my players, and we've been ignoring it).

The Exploration cards have the same color difference. I don't see it as too much of a problem.

I wrote an email to gale force nine. I don't accept this. the color difference is huge! the borg system discs are purple, and the borg exploration cards have a darker blue card back. So you can clearly see what's coming next. The base game costs around 70-100€ here in germany and the Borg expansion around 35€. This isn't acceptable for this price tag.

Did you hear anything back from them?
