    He never said it would happen, only that those were the 4 races with enough popularity/pull to make a faction viable.

    No, I mean I get that. I'm just saying "hahahahahaha" because the very concept in and of itself is absolute hilarity. Besides isn't that what Eve Online is?

    Cryptic needs to just stop calling this an expansion pack; they're abusing the term. An expansion pack should be a full campaign, not an alternate tutorial with a ship pack.
    You are forgetting that its not only the ToS stuff, but theres also a full story arc for everyone + new queues + new rep + new specialization.

    but lets keep up with this BS premise that the ToS stuff is the ONLY stuff in the expansion.

    Oh, I'm sorry, an alternate tutorial and a cross-faction arc. My bad.

    LOR started out with about four times that amount of content with full leveling arcs for two factions and some of the best gorram writing in this game, new reps, and an adventure zone, and DR had at least double that amount of content, a level cap increase, and new advancement mechanics.

    This is just a season update with loony marketing.

    It was literally the exact same snuff as on the Fed and Klingon side.

    I was talking about their unique content [personal insult removed]

    With that I'm going to leave this here. It's support from a "reliable source" for what I've basically been saying the rest of the TOS faction is going to be like.

    https://lootcritter.com/2016/05/27/confirmation-about-aoy-content-from-a-reliable-source/

    It's a lot of silly "well I can't say with any kind of specific language" (because otherwise that's PR spoiled and a developer pissed) but we're probably looking at a continuing arc set in other time periods where the player takes up the role as a temporal agent. And that's probably where the word "Agent" comes in for the name of the expansion.

    Want more? Wait a few weeks, I'm sure there's going to be some blog posts. You're not going to get anything more official now, no matter how many times you stamp your feet. :p

    if that's true that's a good thing I guess, I won't feel so bad about not using the character after I have all of the account rewards from the recruit event.

    When I think about everything we've been through together,

    maybe it's not the destination that matters, maybe it's the journey,

     and if that journey takes a little longer,

    so we can do something we all believe in,

     I can't think of any place I'd rather be or any people I'd rather be with.

    To answer the original question, there are more than six unique missions. I am reliably informed of that fact by a trusted source, which is all I need to know.

    Hoping we get to go to the future with Daniels in the 31st century, as that would be epic!

    Though, to be fair, from what we know, it will be a very nice season. But still just a season.

    If we took the same mindset to other content we could just as well say that there's no new summer event ship, no new summer items, and you know what the entire thing just isn't happening. Would that be reasonable in any way? No, because "what we know" is obviously incomplete, and it's worth keeping in mind that the summer event is very likely happening before AoY.

    Regarding the whole thing about dying and then coming back and people noticing ...

    OH and I guess if you want a Star Trek example ...

    Except all these people didn't travel in time to actually fake their death "intentionally" ... haunting their relatives & friends "on purpose" afterwards ... Apples & Oranges ... but yes we'll see ... I guess everything is at least "possible" in Sci-Fi ... maybe your toon is just an ***hole ... or Janeway :P
    Faked death? Time Travel?

    Ah, found it ...

    Yeah, there are known knowns, there are known unknowns, and there are unknown unknowns.

    One of the known knowns is that there will be a summer event(it's on the in-game calendar), another is that the event ship will be Vorgon(Cryptic leaked that themselves). Also we know that Admiral Leeta and old Scotty will be in AoY.

    Known unknowns include the stats of the Vorgon ship, and what mission/s will include Scotty and Leeta.

    Unknown unknowns? Heh, that's the great uncertainty of life. :)

    I can't say I'll be upset if there's only 6 missions in the basic TOS faction story line. I think the reality people have to realize is that the entire thing is really just a bone to be thrown at a small but very vocal segment of STO's fanbase that has been begging for old school Trek stuff for years. With the main story line moving into the Temporal War arc, there's finally a sensible chance to throw that bone.

    But a bone is all it is, and all it was ever going to be. I mean come on. We're on the edge of 50 years of Star Trek. On the one hand, alright 50 years and the franchise still lives. On the other, holy TRIBBLE this is scifi from the Golden Age, and like a lot of scifi from the Golden Age it kind of looks like TRIBBLE to anyone who didn't live through it (and talking about rose tinted glasses, TOS hasn't held up well with time and even when it was new maybe half the episodes were any good).

    They (cryptic) are doing the best that they (cryptic) can (are able to do).

    It's physically, financially, managerially, culturally and organizationally impossible for Cryptic to do a better job on this, than they're already doing.

    they don't have the ability to do better.

    If this were even remotely true then there needs to be some serious firing and hiring going on. Or PWI just axe the studio. But since it isn't true, stop spewing drivel.
