Since the Cooperative are still a thing...

Could we get more Borg stuff for our Captains? Considering the cost of playing as a Liberated Borg Captain, it would be nice to get things like more assimilated pieces, full body skins (finally), and different costumes and such. More so, with the new Queue being placed on a Borg Cooperative theme, it would be nice if they could get some more love visually. Assimilated weapon skins, more Borg themed gear and costume pieces for all captains, not just Liberated ones. I would love new ship visuals as well. The borg set is cool, but it would be nice to get different sets for Tac, Eng, and Sci as well.

Would anybody else want this?

    I want to see new ground traits for Borg. I never use them because they don't have luck, creativity or soldier. I've been wanting to do a Borg themed build since I bought LTS, but their traits kinda suck. That said, I think if Cryptic really wants to push LTS sales, release a universally playable Borg Cube exclusive to LTS members... Hell I'd buy LTS again just for that lol. Hangar with Sphere Frigates or Probe Fighters... I'd be down for that.

    With that, yeah I might actually create one if they had a few more customization options. Almost three years in and I still haven't made a KDF character, so maybe sometime, perhaps next recruit event, I'll role a KDF Borg.

    However, I think Cryptic said something a while back about not messing with LTS anymore, as in they wont put out anymore content for LTS. That means no new ships, no outfits, no races... nothing. Then again, they did add the ship upgrade token after that so who knows...

    Also a captains table make over. It's bs I can't even change my ship there, and the only reason I do go there is to avoid other people lol.

    I customized something out of the hirogen lobi and seven of nine costumes for my liberated borg crew. Some kit parts are cool as well.

    Like the OP I’m a bit disappointed that we don’t get more stuff here. Especially considering that it is in game. Why can’t we use the outfits from the C-Store Borg drone we purchased on our toons? Why can’t we use the male counterparts the NPCs wear for our toons as well? All of them are programed, available in the tailor just deliberately out of reach for the player. Why?

    Good lord no.

    I know they have realized the massive ugly Jprize but as a fellow LTS i think a borg cube is to much we already get 6 free ships.

    a probe or sphere i could accept but not a cube

    A Cube is a bit too massive for gameplay. However, a Borg Cooperative Sphere would be fun to fly around in or better yet the Type 03.

    Mmmh I think they would choose for a cooperative borg reputation to give you skins for your ship, i know we have borg parts from the omega rep.
    I would like to see a real prosthetic like most borg have on one arm for the liberated borg, that is all I ask

    This is my biggest gripe about the Borg Prosthetics. Liberated Borg Captains and Bridge Officers should have their arm replaced instead of holding that weird minigun. The other Captains and Bridge Officers should be holding a modified Borg arm with a handle attached.

    There would be riots in the streets over this but it WOULD sell the TRIBBLE out of some LTS'.

    everything

    Agreed, in full. While the LTS has paid for itself since beta, they really dropped the ball on the Liberated Borg species and have done nothing to update or improve them. They don't even get full body skins, making any open uniform/clothing look entirely ridiculous. Considering all of the borg assets in the game, they shouldn't have been left to rot as they were. Even at launch and to this day, the playable borg feel entirely half-assed. I would love to get some love for them, as well as, some borg appreciation for the non-Lifers playing.

    Yes, please. I would love to see a class based weapon that actually went over your arm, like the Fluidic Antiproton Wrist Lance.




    It would be nice to get more Borg stuff in the game for everyone but at the same time the Liberated captains definitely need some love as well.

    I've been waiting for years for something like that (Cooperative Reputation one of these things)... but I am a patient human Liberated Borg being.

    I could see a cooperative rep maybe, or even a cooperative lockbox, yet to me this would have come during the delta quad expansion though. Yet I wonder if we would see only reskins of the typical borg vessels (like the cube, sphere, probe, and diamond for instance), or would we see unique cooperative ships , though it could be even be a mixture of both.

    The other question would be why we would see a cooperative rep, which could be that the Borg are becoming a major threat again, or merely beginning to target massive numbers of the lesser space faring races alongside the cooperative Borg that escaped their collective.

    Doubt that will happen unfortunately...lots more money in saving something like that for a gamble box.

    Especially for us Liberated Borg. Besides more options is always a good thing.

    Would mind more Borg stuff but no Co-op PVP/PVE required to get it.

    I would not, so long as they were available to all and easy to get, i.e. no grinding for them like events and such.

    No doubt.... When STO went live, I made both my faction mains Borg.... Then for consistency purposes, as well as misplaced hopes, I made my Romlan which is ultimately my main toon Borg as well. After awhile it seemed like that was a stupid idea as they got no support whatsoever whereas Alien with its 10 robust traits picks is the way to go. Simply put, the options for Borg seem so lackluster and useless with all the extremely limited support in game. I've never used any traits and the "deprogrammed" bonus is so sad.... I wish we could pick from a pool.

    I also used to hope for a sphere or even probe ship as I thought a cube was a bit much to command scope and scale wise but nowadays I dont think it is overkill given some of the ship options in game.

    Regarding the Captain's Table - it is the biggest empty promise - dare I say lie in STO history... Nothing has been done with it since launch even after promised it would become a relevant community hub - over time and other such nonsense....
