    Except that the iconic Cardassian ships are lockbox.

    As already mentioned, everyone forgets exclusivity. Just because they ARE T5/6 already, that doesn't mean you can't have similar, less powerful ships sans the unique consoles. And I imagine even if a Cardassian/New Link/Dominion faction was made, it would follow the Sub Faction role.

    Another thing that would be interesting, is if the new sub faction was the KDF version of Agents of Yesterday. Perhaps splitting off at level 20, or 30, to keep the story from becoming conflicting. Maybe do a combination of Klingon and Starfleet missions, keep it different.

    I'd rather see the new real estate in the Alpha Quadrant developed over another quadrant map.

    One of the best NPCs in STO, second only to T'Nae, is Loriss, the Vorta who takes command of DS9 in the 2800 story arc. At times she is childish, as Vorta are portrayed in canon, but the character is powerful and sympathetic, (something so few STO villains achieve,) and she stands out as an example of a well written NPC opponent. I hope she's still with us when the Dominion Fleet arrives.

    I concur... I rather fancied her as a protagonist in that arc.

    Why all the fuss about what obviously is only going to be a revamp of the season 5 2800 arc.
    It'll be nice to see the new art, but that's all.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    Cryptic has already said the featured series missions like Specters, Cloaked Intentions, and 2800, wont get revamps.

    They are the only pre-LoR content, besides the Defera Borg Invasion Zone, that is off the table in terms of revamping.

    It's content from season 5 so it is more than likely they'll change their opinion on the 2800 arc.

    If the Dominion/Cardi half a$$ faction do not come now...when then? This is the right and only time for redoing Ds9 and all the Gamma quadrant expansion. It is coming and be prepared for it!​​

    Never?

    I've pretty much given up on a Cardassian faction...

    Plenty of other factions they could of went with but instead we got a half arsed second fed faction.

    Loriss? She's not available, she's my Vorta Aliengen Romulan Engineering Character. Some of her clones are Bridge Officers on most of my other Characters.

    Which is what a Cardassian faction would be: a 4 ep story that lets you choose Fed or KDF at the end, and from T2 on you're no longer Cardassian.

    They have already used most of the systems from the expanded map in one mission or another. Or they are Federation/Klingon Empire worlds, that have been well settled/developed for over 100 years, meaning there is nothing to do there.

    Your and my definitions of "nothing to do" with the First Federation sitting there differ quite widely ;).

    The gamma quadrant has a Dyson sphere. I bet a very angry iconian and new Dyson ships with new upgradable protonic weapons. Whoot!

    Okay, T'ket is acceptible if she brings a protonic weapon update. Cannons, arrays, and gear that defends against protonic as well as enhances it would make protonic a full weapon energy type.

    What if The Dominion is A Dominion, an independant nation within a larger Empire.

    Like their could be a Dominion of the Founders, A Dominion of the Herq, A Dominion of another powerful race, all ruled by someone else, and this Empire of Dominions is in a civil war.

    I thought of this based on how Dominions work in the real world.

    Within the Commonwealth, what they call the British Empire in the old days, you have The Dominion of Canada, The Dominion of New Zealand, The Dominion of Australia, and so on.

    It's mentioned in the iconian ark. I forget which mission. I believe it's the one you infiltrate with sela. She finds a reference in a computer.

    Thank you for the correction. Even if it does come across as smug and self-righteous.

    I would say that the new episode Brushfire provides some hints that point into the direction of the Dominion becoming our allies (otherwise that Jem'hadar would have been completely and utterly pointless). Martok might even play a central role in negotiations between the Alliance and the Dominion. As always there will be some major threat that cannot be countered by one single faction alone (Tzenkethi, T'ket, unkown race). Everybody will band together until victory is at hand.

    I remember the Rapier, god was he arrogant. When he was speaking to us, I have a slight urge to punch him in his vorta nose :) That was years ago though. Who knows, in the next expansion, we might meet Eraun 6, who might be a bit nicer, and not so arrogant :)
    Read/listen to the optional dialogs at the end of Boldly they Rode. :D Sooo much fun! In one of them Loriss mentions that Eraun is "sulking" and amuses herself by "expressing fawning sycophancy on his behalf". Hahaha.. :D

    -Even Mirror Leeta is only the way she is because that is literally how her whole universe is. She isn't just evil and ruthless for the sake of it, she is that way because that is how everyone there is raised to act.
    Also... she was possessed by the Pah-Wraiths...
