I'll make it its own.

Cryptic Studios needs to have better representation from CBS/Paramount. John Van Citters, the current Star Trek Lore King of CBS/Paramount used to visit Cryptic Studios at least twice a year before the Covid-19 Pandemic started. 2020, 2021 and 2022 have been INSANE for Star Trek TV in general. Star Trek Online and Star Trek Timelines are the only games that are ongoing aside from a few main title games like Fleet Command and the Prodigy PC/Console game.

Ground Combat isn't that hard to learn but it does need to be interjected a lot better than it currently is. To some people they don't touch Ground Combat in general because they think you need a whole college course to understand it when in reality it needs to be re-taught to understand. It needs to be fixed. there needs to be hardpoints like Headshot, Legshot, Armshot Etc. there should also be No-Power Ground Melee zones like what was planned back in 2011.

In 2022 the only Episodes[Story Missions] that we got are Red Shift, Blue Shift, The Calling and Eye Of The Storm. and Cryptic Studios as well as MFatum know damn well I want to see all the locked missions that are old and from launch brought back. Especially Past Imperfect because it has loot Federation Characters don't have access to and have not had access to since it was put behind a lock.

The Event Campaigns are nice. 3 and 4 have been probably my favorite thus far and they are nice for ongoing things. As for ships in the C-Store with a lot of attention going back on the Mirror Universe I thought it would have been a good time to bring back Miles 'Smiley' O'Brien's son in his Typhoon Class missions as well. I don't mind the new ships with new consoles and new skins. that's all nice and dandy. they also used to come into the C-Store a lot more pre-pandemic as well.

Re-Engineering was something that was added about 2-3 years ago. it costs 400 Dil for one spin and goes up with however many things you want to spin. Warp Cores, Kit Frames and a bunch of other things are UNABLE to be Re-Engineered. That would help a lot of the repeatability of the game. People will come back to re-engineer old items. frames and whatnot. this should have been implemented back when Re-Engineering was Introduced.

I have tried to get my points accross without using useless buzzwords or stuff like that. I hope I have done well. I know what I say doesn't really get attention anymore. there are like 5 Endgame Connies in the game. that was really what I was known for back when I was hella active in the forum.

Peace Out.

    These are good suggestions.

    I think the team has to think about striking while the iron is hot. Star Trek is BACK (as of Star Trek Picard S3)

    Some will be defensive and snarky and think "Star trek was back with Discovery", but it wasnt... Wait until you see S3 of Picard, and the spin offs that come BECAUSE of it.

    If there's a chance for Star Trek Online to ride the coming wave- it's to get to work on a serious Revamp of ground combat and a new style of gameplay.

    It may be a huge undertaking, but it means getting another 15 years out of the game and that isn't a bad thing.

    And Cryptic/Gearbox definitely needs to get Paramount/CBS to stop renting and restricting the license and start realizing that Star Trek Online is like a Star Trek Toy that could both serve to freely advertise as well as be further woven into canon!

    The head of Merchandising for Star Trek is dropping the ball on this one BIG time.... And Star Trek Online needs to talk to people at CBS/Paramount. Make a proposal.

    STO should be supported not charged rent.

    How do YOU know what the deal is between Cryptic and ViacomCBS!? You do know they work together and have been doing since day 1! The only restrictions are on a very small handful of things, and VCBS has 'veto', which is rarely ever used. You suppose alot of things about the license, that you cannot know.

    Star Trek was back with Discovery, end of. There is no denying it, it's canon. You are doing nothing but gate-keeping. The game has been riding a wave for years starting because of Discovery.

    Finally, once again and as pointed out in your other posting, what you're asking for requires millions upon millions of dollars and a complete rebuild of the game that would take years to do, but copying that 'other' god-awful game is not what players want in a Star Trek game. Star Trek needs to clean up it's space act, way before tackling ground combat.....and OP....ripping off Fall-out...seriously!?

    My idea isn't Fallout inspired. Its just about different hitpoint counts for attacking said parts.

    There is no need, there is little advantage to taking out other body parts when a simple stun disables everything. What you suggest would be appropriate for lasers and projectile weapons.....which are far inferior.

    instead of TRIBBLING with target hardpoints, some attention to ai would be so much better

    This is literally word for word the same post made in "that thread" where there you expressed disappointment in it not being remarked upon, so you decided to spam it with a separate thread, not to mention with a click bait title. Spamming /thread
