    I hope that Galaxyinteriour will be a general makeover and replace the standard "Galaxy"-Bridge pack that i already have. Because those are ugly and way to HHHUUUUGE!

    Have to admit I'd really enjoy seeing some more Cardassian and Dominion based content so the teaser at the end was appreciated. The fact that the Cardassians played such a major, heavy role in DS9 but were all but written out of their arc in favour of "Mirror Leeta" in the revamp has never set well with me.

    As for the Dominion, I'm hoping that there isn't going to be a "Dominion war 2.0" and we get to approach them as an ally. As previous posters have suggested, some enemy like the Hur'q or perhaps T'Ket and her various pets attacking the Dominion and giving them a run for their money so they turn to the Alliance for help would be appealing to me.

    I don't see a playable cardassian/dominion faction ever emerging, nor the ability to have playable Jem'hadar or Vorta. Cryptic seems quite happy with the current 'solution' of allowing players to recreate them in the Alien character creator options. Disappointing though as I'd quite like a proper playable Cardassian, at least on the Fed side since Cardassia is a protectorate of the Federation.

    Though, Cryptic did introduce playable Talaxians for Lifers, even though there's no communication or means of travel between the Delta and Alpha/Beta quadrants for quite a bit of the game.

    But first I'd really like to see a conclusion to the Tzenkethi arc.

    Don't get me wrong I'm very hyped for all the new stuff but......season 14? already? any season after 10 has had about 2 missions before the next update is announced, 13.5 only got one! basically cryptic my advice is slow down the number of new seasons and ".5's" and instead put all the new content under one season and things will be better :smiley: and my thoughts on the ds9 thing, maybe the Dominion want the alpha quadrant changelings back don't forget we left them all on Orias III and seeing as how the 25th anniversary of DS9 is next year......

    I always find it funny when people make comments like these, because going on the STO wiki will show that seasons last 3-4 months before going to the .5 season, and .5 seasons only last 3-4 months themselves, and by the time season14 comes out, it will have been 4 months since the .5 season.

    This isl iterally the exact same since they started doing .5 seasons back in season 8.

    what I mean is the .5 seasons can last for an entire year or how ever long they want to but more content to go with them would be nice not just the launch stuff and then that's it until the next thing.

    as to the TNG interior I can't express how much I love it. I only hope we get the ready room as well with some of picard's trinkets and livingston :smile:

    They really can't last for a year or however long because the studio has a soft deadline to release a significant addition to the game roughly every three months, or at least behave as if it does. Starting at Season Ten is also a bit of a cherry-pick, given that Season 9.5, the last non-expansion release prior to that one, had zero new episodes and zero revamped episodes, and the prior few releases only contained one new episode each and some revamps for some of them. I'd like more episodes, too, but they seem to be on a limited episode release schedule this year, and that's what we're getting. It's as good as the year prior to Delta Rising, and better than the year prior to Legacy of Romulus, but not as good as what we became accustomed to during 2015. I have hopes that this slower pace of new content will pay off with maybe all of the old serial FEs getting a revamp in the near future, since they're all looking pretty dated by today's standards, and/or the expansion next year having a decent chunk of new content for existing characters.

    LMAO! Man, they sure jumped quick from Season 13.5! So desperate to keep this game alive! And I'm already placing bets that new Galaxy-class layout is gonna be exclusive to some ship pack like you did with Voyager.

    Lets hope not, because my zen is ready :smiley:

    I have my doubts about it being in a multi-ship pack because all of the current variations of the Galaxy are already in those. Since owning a part of the pack usually precludes you from buying the whole pack, it would be difficult to code, and limit the number of sales that they get for it. They can do it, since they made the Temporal pack available to anyone who already owned the few pieces of it that already existed, but if the only new part of this supposed new pack is that interior, then why bother re-bundling it. Maybe they'll make it part of a big pack that includes no new ships, like how they offered the TOS and Defiant interiors with those bundles of odds and ends way back when.

    Like someone mentioned, it will probably be sold in a similar way to the Voyager interior. I bought the TOS ship interior bundle even though I already owned the TOS Connie and bought the Voyager bundle just for the interior. The only Galaxy variants outside what I used leveling tokens to acquire other are the MU Guardian, Galaxy X, and the T6 Galaxy X. Hopefully the MU Guardian skin and parts can be used on other Galaxy variants. Because of the different variants though and possible interiors, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a mega bundle of everything and then smaller packs like the Galaxy bundle with standard and Future Imperfect interiors, Galaxy X bundle with All Good Things interior, and a Generations bundle with interior. I do hope the interiors do include the Battle Bridge on a lower deck.

    @ambassadorkael Hmm, will this new Galaxy interior be available on all current Galaxy ships we already own?! Will it be only on a new Galaxy ship we need to buy? Or will it be like a bridge pack?

    I'm saying that's unlikely because there are no ships to bundle it with that aren't already part of other bundles. The Galaxy bundle contains the Tier 4 Venture, the Tier 5 Galaxy Refit and the Tier 5 Galaxy-X. The Tier 6 Andromeda is in the cross-faction Cruiser bundle and the Tier 6 Yamato is in the cross-faction Dreadnought bundle. Despite some stylistic similarities, the Guardian and Mirror Guardian are not part of the Galaxy family, since they can't use Galaxy parts. The Voyager interiors were able to be put into an Intrepid bundle because none of those ships were already in a bundle at that point.

    I'd put good money on it being usable on all of the Galaxy family of ships, at the very least, but also on you having to purchase it to do so, in whatever fashion that they decide to make it available. No special screen-replica full interior has been free to begin with ever before, and I don't see that changing now.

    I thought it may be interesting and a twist if they would introduce career only characters. For example, Vorta for science, Jem'hadar for tactical, and Cardassian for engineer... I really want to play a Jem'hadar and a Cardiassian one day....

    FTR, I don't mind paying for bridges; on the contrary, really. :) I just hope they don't pull some dipsh*t where you can only buy the bridge/interior pack if you buy a Galaxy bundle first, and you already happen to have a Galaxy ship somewhere (which is also part of some bundle), thus excluding you from getting the bridge/interior, like they did with the Intrepid bridge/interior. Cuz that would be incredibly lame.

    Right, they gave away the bundle that the TOS interior was in after how long? 5 years? It certainly wasn't free to begin with, as I said above.

    You'll see a TNG 30th Anniversary Bundle that probably will include the Interior and other stuff (more TNG themed Uniform variants, including the free Work anniversary sash, etc. - plus maybe the T6 Galaxy Class variant.
    ^^^
    Already own the Galaxy Class variant; or got the other stuff when it was 'free'? Too bad for you, you'll still need to pay if you want the interior.
    ^^^
    My basis for this? It's pretty much how they sold the TOS interior. Many players had already bought some of the other TOS items that were bundled with the interior (including the TOS T0 Connie starter ship at the time) <---- But that didn't lower or give any sort of discount to/for the pack. If you wanted access to use the interior, you bought the pack, period.

    If I was to guess right now, it would be somewhat similar to what was just posted, but the ship, if there is one, will be a new Miracle Worker variant of the Galaxy. We have 2 Sovereigns with different specs, why not 2 Galaxies? It won't bother me if I have to pay full price for the bundle, even if it includes uniforms that I already have, so long as I can still buy the pack. The Intrepid bundle being the only reliable way to get the Voyager interiors (save for a couple of very brief surprise runs of the standalone interior) and being unavailable if you already owned the Tier 4 or Tier 5 Intrepids was just awful, and is something that should be remedied by making the interior itself a permanent addition to the C-Store.

    Levar Berton made it to the front page of reddit today. He is getting sued by WNED for saying "You don't have to take my word for it" on his podcast. So he better not say something like "I can go anywhere" or "I can do anything" in the episode. Hope the case gets dismissed Janeway style - that's a Starfleet expression for GET OUT.

    Good to have him on STO and looking forward to the episodes.

    I could imagine the dominion being upset about
    that Jem Hadar that got killed in Brushfire
    , maybe a threat on a similar scale to the iconians? Maybe some idiot went to Dewa and T'ket is annoyed so that one is going against 10 other iconians and a galaxy? Maybe bigger... Maybe there we will be visiting a different galaxy who also struggled with the iconians, want revenge but we won't let them so they hate us.... so many possibilities.

    Will the TNG one piece uniforms be available for purchase finally? It would also be nice to have the TWoK jacket available to use without the turtleneck under it as well, like it was in Yesterday's Enterprise. A full collar TNG uniform from the same episode would be awesome too. Admiral Picard's uniform from Future Imperfect would be an amazing addition to our uniforms as well as the ability to set the ranks on the Future Imperfect badge and colors too, so you could do Admiral variants. I would also like to see Admiral Riker's uniform from All Good Things as well.

    Aside from TOS where the minidress seemed to be standard for females, it's always been an optional uniform and would continue to be so. Now we will finally have some true equality, where men and women both can choose either pants or skirts according to their own preference.

    The practicality argument makes some sense, but it's never been a primary concern on the screen productions. Aside from a brief period in the TMP era films where we saw some armor for security and a radiation suit for Scotty, everyone has always worn flimsy cloth uniforms that won't protect from a stiff breeze. Fortunately, you have armor suit and other options you can dress your crew in if you're concerned about work hazards.

    Also in cases of Race. If you go to Starfleet Academy and look at the cadets, you will notice that all the Caitians are wearing skirts without stockings. It was just something I noticed during one of the "duty officer weekends". At the time I wondered why, then as someone who tends to have more than my fair share of body hair, I discovered why when I wore a broad weave shirt to work.

    That day I gained a ton of respect for the Dev that realized that Caitians would have specific problems with normal uniforms due to hair. They could do enough undergarments or linings to make the torso parts more comfortable but the moving parts like the legs and the arms would almost have to be bare.

    ^^ This times 100!

    Please, Cryptic, do not make the same mistake twice. Don't pull some lame cr*p saying I already own a Galaxy, and therefore am uneligible to obtain the full Galaxy bundle, and thus the interior. I'm one of those ppl who said I'd pay the price for a full ship even, just for a good interior. Now you're making one. No dipsh*t, please: just sell it to me.

    The founders don't really care about "solids" so a death of single Jem'hadar (who are cannon fodder anyway) would not matter to them 1 bit nor would probably care one bit about the So'na that we killed dispite what so'na captain claimed

  • ltminnsltminns Member Posts: 9,070 Arc User
    Apples and Oranges. There was no Voyager/Pathfinder bundle before there was the Interior. It all came out together, though you may have picked up the lower Tier ships individually before the Bundles. Remember when it first came out you had the new T6 Pathfinder to add the Interior to as well as the larger Bundle. You couldn't have bought the T6 ship by itself.

    The Galaxy, on the other hand already has a lower Tier bundle and the T6's for the Galaxy and Galaxy-X have already been released, so there is no place to put the Interior, except by itself, or as a Giveaway.

    So maybe the Interior will be part of the Anniversary Giveaway and put into the C-Store for purchase for afterwards. They should add the Voyager Interiors to the C-Store as well and stop this madness.

    They are not going to release a T6 Galaxy Premium Remastered Edition with different seating into the C-Store. :)
