    I would say that considering problems we all had with LOR release, this update works just fine.The problem is content!
    It is so stupid!
    If we could just buy reputation with ZEN, i wouldn't never ever visited SPHERE!


    i expected a real one.... read below if you disagree with this then you dont follow Canon trek for the real one see TNG, Episode 6x04 Relics

    A Dyson sphere is a hypothetical megastructure originally described by Freeman Dyson. Such a "sphere" would be a system of orbiting solar-power satellites meant to completely encompass a star and capture most or all of its energy output. Dyson speculated that such structures would be the logical consequence of the long-term survival and escalating energy needs of a technological civilization, and proposed that searching for evidence of the existence of such structures might lead to the detection of advanced intelligent extraterrestrial life. Different types of Dyson Spheres correlate with information on the Kardashev Scale.

    And the voth

    The Voth were a saurian species, presumably having evolved from beings originally native to the planet Earth, but later coming to reside in the Delta Quadrant. A significantly advanced species, the Voth were cold-blooded creatures, had a superior sense of smell, and skin pigmentation which altered according to moods.

    Interestingly, Doctrine also proclaimed breaking the transwarp threshold would be dangerous to the Voth and its society. The race was held back millenia as a consequence. However, someone took a chance, and managed to take the race into a new era.

    Based on the remains of Voyager crewmember Hogan, Voth scientist Forra Gegen concluded his long worked-on Distant Origin Theory, stating that the Voth had evolved on Earth. This was later proven by Captain Kathryn Janeway and The Doctor, who traced both species' DNA back to a common ancestor that lived among the dinosaurs.


    The Ministry of Elders arrested Gegan for heresy, accusing him of preaching against Doctrine. Despite Gegan's protests that he was merely conducting a scientific expedition, the Elders tried to accuse him of being reckless, that his "casual theorizing" was damaging the Doctrine, intentionally or otherwise. Scientists loyal to the Elders wanted to say that although the data were compelling, Gegan's interpretations weren't clear. The Elders were reluctant to punish Gegan as such, but were more concerned in getting him to retract his claims. Voth society was not willing to accept such a radical concept ? even Gegan's daughter was skeptical of it.

    One Voth Elder went as far as to declare that if she accepted this theory, she would be admitting her race fled in terror from Earth, scratching and clawing their way to the part of space where the city ship is now, that her race had no birthright, no legacy ? the concept appalled and disgusted her. Commander Chakotay attempted to persuade her that surviving among some of the fiercest creatures in Earth's history, creating a culture, language and technology, leaving Earth when it faced peril and going into space, and journeying to the Delta Quadrant to start a new life was the definition of the Voth ancestors, the struggle that made the race what it was ? its heritage.

    It was not enough ? the Ministry of Elders convicted Gegan of heresy, and threatened to imprison him and the crew of the Voyager on a prison colony. Gegan could not live with that on his conscience, and retracted his claims to save the crew. It is unknown if anyone else has since pursued the research into this theory. (VOY: "Distant Origin")


    All of the inofmation is from "Star Trek" something this game is "ment" to be bassed on, please PWE/Criptic if your going to get something from the "show" get the content correct.

    Just completed the "new and shiny tutorial", and i'm proud to report that NONE of the feedback provided on the forums was taken to heart.

    When the server comes back on, I plan on recreating one of my older characters that I barely leveled (and has nothing I need to keep on it) so I can run that tutorial!

    My view on Voth being they are canon is that the whole dinosaur thing wasn't needed. I listened to the multiple podcasts with Geko talking about well we have dogs so they need dinosaurs. A correct relation would be if humans had cave men for seeing eyes dogs then maybe. With the generator ground mission watching that barrel go along I expected monkeys to fly out of it.

    Here is my take on it all....


    First revamp rep system was a joke

    second the server's do seem to be a lil more stable then lor release so cheers there other then half resolution problem.

    third The rep system is killing sto sorry to say it. I lost 9 new people in my fleet over this issue mainly over the 20 hour cool down time most kids these days have a short attention span ne way's so why have a rep system have a 20 hr. cool down......... rep system is TRIBBLE and the comment was made if rep was able to bought in Zen store he wouldn't go back I am in total agreement with this statement come really more rep. omg it would take a year to finish all the rep u have us doing.... wtf peeps on that

    fourth I wish they had better customer support ne would be nice other then waiting 3 week for a email saying u are s.o.l

    seriously thou I was angry when sto made voth hostile they didn't like endotherms but wasn't killing them. or experimenting on them either......... game content should reflect show it is called star trek online and shouldn't make up there on version....... I look forward to seeing the patch notes but I want to now its been 4 weeks I submitted help tackests and no reply I paid 20 dollar for a ship I cant cliam wtf

    weather u like it or not they are dinosaurs and it is canon and been on this show.... The way PWE have done them is not they got the looks sort of right but the infomation incorrect..
