    make them independent after level 10 and not force us to choose side.

    This also, I have a number of Roms, both Fed and KDF aligned, having an actual Rom, and not just a Fed or KF with a different look and limited ship options would be awesome, although I think the fact that things like Fleets, most STFs etc being Faction specific would make it either impossible, or way too expensive to do. I seem to remember reading somewhere that the current game engine only allows for two actual distinct factions, but that was a long time ago and I'm kinda old and senile.

    You did read that post properly then but the head boss has also stated they are looking into either updating the game engine or rebuilding it to allow for more options. Read that somewhere also could just be rumor mill though.

    If there is another Faction coming, it's been shown to us via the second half of this video.

    Well as it says there Summer 2018, new expansion "Victory is Life." This is what the Jem'hadar live by. So, it does elude to a Dominion faction. Though, for the most part, I'd take it as an expansion on the Gamma Quadrant, more so than another faction.

    This is one thing we will have to wait and see on.

    But in so doing, it looks like Tacofangs will get his wish and be able to revamp DS9.

    Cryptic has stated in the past that they like to alternate what kind of expansions they do
    -LoR was a new faction expansion
    -DR was a mostly new end-game content expansion
    -AoY was a new faction expansion
    -ViL will most likely be a new end-game focused expansion

    Though GECKO has said once or twice in the past, before AoY came out, that they had ideas all the out to expansion 5, and I really can't imagine what they would do at that point

    Cardassian (for Liberated Borg Cardassian)
    Dominion (for playable Jem'Hadar and Vorta BOFFs)
    Delta Quadrant, for all these playable species:
    9A77409B4E06BB5AE906047A87FF0DBEC1AF3868
    8472.
    Borg Cooperative/Liberated Borg. But only if I get a Tactical Cube to own. Otherwise there's no point, I can make a LibBorg character anytime I want.

    At this point, I'm being incredibly pragmatic.
    I don't care if there's minimal unique story or even story at all.
    For me, it's all about the playable species and the ships, that's all I need for a faction.
    The amount of killing we do, Starfleet might as well be the Terran Empire​​

    Jello, I'm a Starfleet officer, we come in peace, shoot to kill. ;)

    Gorn Borg?

    "We are the Gorg. Lower your shieldssss and ssssurrender your sun lampsss. Your biological distinctiveness will be used to feed our hatchlingsss and your technological prowessss will add to our forcesssss. Resistance isss Futile."
    Mad Science means never stopping to ask "What's the worst that could happen?"

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options, letting the toon complexion affect the entire body, not just the head. Also a true RGB color picker applied to all costume and appearance options, which would allow for true appearance customization and homogenous colors instead of "this same exact color looks vastly different on two different pieces."
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts. For obvious reasons this would only apply to standard ground weapons.
    4) For the love of Q please revamp Plasma Ground Weapons. They look like demented Supersoakers right now.
    5) True Vanity Impulse and Deflector effects similar to Vanity Shields.
    6) A greater payout for hitting T6 Reputations. Currently it takes more time and resources to get from T5 to T6 than it does to get from nothing to T5. Make that grind really pay out at the end.
    7) Mirrorverse Refugee event similar to AoY/Delta/Gamma, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    8) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    One can work around the faction part, via bio and Role playing, if nothing else.

    Real Romulans, with no alignment.

    And add a few species for them too. Garidians and stuff would be nice.

    Thermians.
    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

    I used to want a Cardassian / Dominion faction, but they've already released the majority of their ships in lockboxes so it's pointless now.

    The Gorg!

    Someone wants to be a bionic scorpion. ;)
    Maybe they should make more versions of playable Borg, at this point, they're only three species and the Borg can be potentially from any species.

    No offense intended, but I can't take the Thermian suggestion seriously.
    Because they're from Galaxy Quest and non-Trek concepts won't be introduced to STO.

    But now I am wondering if there is a humanoid squid or octopus species in the Trek universe.
    Aquatic species aren't common, the Chelons and Xindi-Aquatic are the only canon examples known.

    Why on earth would you refer to them as Chelons, when that is a 100% made up name, when they have a canon name, which is Rigellians?

    Also there are the Aquans from TAS.

    You know I'd forego an new faction, in lieu of an Armory. A place to store excess gear, to where it doesn't take up inventory/bank space.

    As good as that sounds I doubt the devs would do that don't get me wrong be nice but the devs wont do that if they do no one would bay the bank space and inventory space for real money. They are worried about losing money at this point lol.

    No they could then offer Armory expansions as well. The potential is there. Though I suppose with enough ships and boff slots this would take care of itself :tongue:

    I still have doubts though don't get me wrong it is solid and would be popular they just have more to do like I don't fix there game take of those issues and such.

    I wouldn't say it owuld be pointless to make a Cardassian faction just because two ships were made available in a lockbox, they would just have to make the faction version of said ships a little different from the lockbox ones, and make it so the lockbox ones are simply a way to get a few ships without being in the faction.

    They could do this if they made special ships alliance factions traded with eachother such as a klingon bird-of-prey fed and romulans can use.
  • avoozuulavoozuul Member Posts: 2,484 Arc User
    In STO there is newer versions of classic ships, the Cardassian ships in the lockboxes could be seen as the classic versions of Cardassian ships much like how the TOS Enterprise is in a promo box itself, they could just make future versions of the same ships for the faction itself.
  • tilartatilarta Member Posts: 1,713 Arc User
    Well, based on the data available, we'll never see Antedians as playable.
    Because they have to be placed in suspended animation due to biological issues preventing them from being conscious during space travel.
    Makes you wonder why they were even considered for membership in the Federation if they weren't capable of tolerating warp travel.
    Although I'm sure that offer was retracted when Starfleet found out about the treachery their "Ambassadors" were planning.


    The opinion on TAS varies a lot, but it was eventually decided that outside of a few isolated episodes, it isn't canon because it conflicts far too much with established Trek lore.
    So as far as the Trek universe is concerned, nothing from TAS is real.
    And before anyone mentions it, the only reason Caitians exist is because of minor cameos in Star Trek IV.
    General rule, if we don't see a TAS concept in live action, it did not happen.

    According to the Star Trek Star charts the Antedian homeworld was a Federation member, along with most other worlds seen in TNG applying for membership like Antica and Selay.

    This is 100% objectively wrong. TAS was canon, then it was made non-canon, then they brought it back as canon, and stated it was canon, then CBS got rid of its page describing what canon is, so the only thing we have to go on is their last word, in which TAS was just canon, not semi-canon, not quasi-canon, but just canon.

    For me I can see two things happening allowing the Romulan Republic to be a separate faction it is now possible all they have to do is add a actual shipyard to New Romulus and that can be a redo of the Gasko Station itself. As for a new faction I can see the Cardassian's being added but the issue is the company is hot on Sub Factions and if they view there history that was the worse idea ever for the game as LoR had a massive back lash when this happened along with many other issues it caused and didn't fix. IF they want to add another race add the Cardassian's and separate Romulan Republic as its own separate faction, you could even add the Romulan Empire as a cause and effect of the aftermath of the Civil War and victory of the Republic. Helping the New Romulan Empire rebuild and lick its wounds.
    I've often wondered why the Republic doesn't have any space stations...
