I decided to make a Discovery character since I wanted to try out the new content that was built around starting a new Discovery era/universe character. However, there is one big thing missing in terms of player immersion:
After the initial missions there is no way to get more Discovery era bridge officers.
Sure, you can get regular bridge officers and dress them in Discovery uniforms, but the icons are different on the character status screen, which draws my attention to the fact that the other bridge officers are NOT from the Discovery era.
The whole idea with this content is that your Discovery era crew comes with you in the game, so from a player immersion/lore perspective I want to be able to make my entire bridge crew Discovery era bridge officers.
Devs: please give Discovery era captains a way to recruit/purchase more Discovery era bridge officers ... similar to the way that 23rd century bridge officers purchased from the K-13 store display as 23-century bridge officers and not standard bridge officers.
In the immortal words of Captain Sisko: "It may not be what you believe, but that doesn't make it wrong."
Don't believe the lies in this forum. I am NOT an ARC user. I play STO on Steam or not at all.
