Hey all! I played this game a lot a long time ago, and returned about a month ago. I just wish to tell you my opinion about the STO storyline, and curious about how many ppl think this way, and how many do in another..
I think there is a problem with direction of the current STO stories. Its hard to tell, moreover as english is not my first language, but I find it in a way boring that there is always a new main enemy in the game. I watched some Star Trek series, not all, and haven't watched all the movies. I have no problem with campaigns against jemhadar, cardassians, borgs, or undine, fedss and klingons and I could tell a lot of more main races I remember of from the Star Trek films.
We had the vadwaaur, very strong, very technologically advanced aand defeated. Then we had the iconians. Very strong, very advanced aaand - well not defeated just survived. But another super strong main enemy race is gone. Now we have the nakhuls. I bet they will be very strong, very advanced aaaand at the end we defeat them too. And there will be another race. From another timeline, from another universe, from another galaxy, but a more stronger, a more advanced super evil enemy will come and we will always defeat them..
I wanted to write that this is boring, but that is not the best word and I do not even know how to describe it. Of course this is only my own opinion, I do not say this is soo bad and unplayable and boring. This is a good game and I like it, buut I would like better if the story was not about a big big big friendship, coalition, alliance and galactic union between klingons, feds, cardassians, romulans.. noo! For me these are one of the main races, and if everyone is happy with everyone it will be boring.
Someone said in a mission, maybe it was cpt. Walker that in timelines where there were no alliance between klingons, feds and romulans or the alliance ended, well that timeline was disastrous, or somethin similar he mentioned. I want that timeline!!! I would be so happy if the alliance between these three races would somehow ended in the coming storyline. I want a campaing, no, I want MANY campaigns, storyline missions and even new reputation systems about new wars between the federation and klingon empire. Maybe the romulans could join either side as "mercenaires" or something, but I want endless wars, and battles not with terrans, iconians, nakhuls and who the hell know what kind of super evil species will show up later. But I want between klingons, feds, romulans, jemhadar, and cardassians. There can be a ceasefire in every two or three season, there can be even new species with less role, but Star Trek is this for me. Of course next to the endless explorations but we all know that this is a more action based game.
I do not want a main role again for another specie coming out of the blue and another galactic crusade where we save the whole universe from ultimate evil, again, for the 128th times. I just want a simple endless war between klingons and feds. "Normal" scale battles and wars, without any superweapons, super destruction, super annihilation etc.
