    Apparently the colony is the size of a standard episode map with "lots of nooks and crannies" to discover and will feature events which Fleets can run for themselves.

    Could Cryptic be any more obvious at this point?

    Just announce the DS9 expansion already!

    The preview video (on their Twitter feed, which is where I'm getting all this from) shows DS9, the wormhole and a lot of Jem'Hadar ships.

    Not surprising, been calling it ever since Future Proof came out
    -Cardassian story revamp
    -Mirror Leeta
    -Talk of a DS9 map revamp
    -Tholians, and Breen, both species that made some sort of alliance/treaty with The Dominion, and Dominion showing up
    -Going to the Gamma Quadrant to visit New Khitomer in the future
    -Tzenkethi, a species mentioned in DS9, become a major story arc
    -Rodek, Kurn's fake life given to him in an episode of DS9

    Yep, definitely makes sense as the next logical direction to go in.

    I didn't spot any new ships in the trailer either. Couldn't make out the ship with the yellow engine trails; all the rest looked like ones we already have(excluding the generic "alien" ship).



    Anyways, here's my notepad infodump:
    TNG Anniversay:
    -Skant & Shuttle for everyone(September)
    -Galaxy Bridge/Interior

    Levar Burton making an appearance
    New Episode: "Beyond the Nexus"

    New Fleet Holding: "Panov" Lukari/Kentari Colony (5! Tiers)
    -Standard episode sized map with "nooks and crannies".
    Tzenkethi Ground Queue (Defend the colony)

    Season 14:
    -October

    New Specialization "Miracle Worker"
    -divert shields into hull

    Jem Hadar (Invasion?) fleet at DS9 ("Victory is Life" 2018)

    I used the Galaxy Class since Beta release and always hoped for a better interior... I've used the Galaxy non-stop for so many years.

    Just a few weeks ago I finally changed to something else.... AAAAND they release a Galaxy Interior.. TRIBBLE.
  • somtaawkharsomtaawkhar Member Posts: 5,890 Arc User
    So why is that they are saying season 14 is coming out this October, but the trailer says 2018?

    Also, this makes more sense as an expansion announcement, we aren't going to sit on Season 13 for a whole year.

    I get the feeling someone dun goofed somehwere

    Season 14 in October

    'Victory is Life' expansion in 2018

    I'm curious to see what they will do with this since the Dominion War has been over for a long time. I definitely welcome an update to DS9! Can't wait to see what they do with it! :smiley:
    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

    Doesn't take that much effort to reason out...season 14 is new holding/FE and a continuation of the Tzenkethi arc, Expansion 4 relates to the Jem'Hadar, and probably means gamma quadrant if it's a full-sized expansion.

    The goof's in the interpretation, not in the information.

    We have already taken out, or made peace with, basically every major power in the Alpha, Beta, and Delta Quadrants, and our long war with the Iconians and their proxies, as well as the Temporal Cold War, and our Tzenkethi conflict, have caused us to reach a level of technology bordering on the limits, with us being able to weaponize time itself, and our mastery of protomatter thanks to the Lukari.

    It isn't surprising that the Dominion, the only major power in the Gamma Quadrant, as well as the only power even the Iconians were hesitant to attack before they were really prepared for it, would start getting some cold feet about letting us do what we want.

    Though I suspect the conflict between us and The Dominion will be a lot more then just that.

    We’ll also have server-wide giveaways of the TNG Skant Uniform and the Type 7 Shuttle to celebrate the anniversary of this landmark television show.

    Finally thousands of players get what they desire most, this:

    More than one thing is coming. :wink:

    This October - Season 14
    Next Summer - Expansion (in all probability)

    That said there's probably a season 15 (covering early spring to summer 2018) too so while we know that the Dominion are coming to what degree they'll factor into the expansion (for example, hold off on confirming a playable faction) is something that we'll see play out over the coming year.

    Is that from the game? Looks awesome.

    Hopefully Engineering doesn't magically open into the corridors like it did in that Riker/Worf scene in Generations. :p

    Yes, but knowing Cryptic, they likely have the game set to like render scale 5 to make it look better then what you will actually see in-game.

    So you mean like any other game in video game history? Take for example the amazingly upscaled GTA 3 teaser pictures. Which look a LOT better than the actual game. It's always like that..

    Why act so suprised? Get a couple of Titan's in SLI and run your game in Renderscale 5. Problem solved!
