Cryptic, please give us other mini games to do to earn Q's photos besides "The Fastest Game on Ice".
I would love for a Cryptic Dev to run this 25 times in a row and explain to me how fun it was. It's not fun, it's a chore. Yes, I know, free ship. But who cares, the game needs to be fun no matter what you're trying to get. This was actually the first event ship I've gotten in two years and have avoided it previously because I find the grind so tedious. The only reason I decided to bite the bullet and do it this time around was for the T6 Carrier, which is A. a free T6 ship and B. a carrier which I love.
Please fix the bug that auto fails the mission if more than one player tries to run the race at the same time in the same instance. And last thing I'll mention about the race is, shouldn't the NPC you're racing against have the same physics apply to it that the players does? They run around the track perfectly and there is little room for any error. I get a head start in the beginning which seems to not be WAI and from lag in the game. If the NPC gets ahead of you by almost any amount there is no way for you to catch up.
Give us a funner race, add a "speed boost" option that can be used once or something like that, give us more than one track layout. Variety is the spice of life.
The snowmen throwing snowballs at everyone. Getting knocked down while just trying to get from the gate to the gazebo is really annoying. Please get rid of the snowmen around the gazebo and around the starting point for the race.
Please consider making these winter events feel more like Trek and have a little more basis in reality. As they are now, they just look childish and silly. They feel like they could be taken out of any generic MMO out there and not at all fitting in the Trek universe. Yes, all of you will say "there were lots of silly Trek episodes". I know, those are the ones I hit "skip" button on. I'm not a grinch, not even that old (34 years old) but I would like to have something more mature and realistic than what we're getting now with the gingerbread man pets and the snow ball launchers and fat Breen.
