    Creating an Ion Storm? That sounds interesting indeed!

    A good read and I look forward to the final result!

    Very good read, kinda want to re-play the attack on Utopia Planitia now... even if it will make me feel like an TRIBBLE :P
    One minor nitpick though: Exotic particle generators? Isn't "Exotic particle" supposed to be a vague term used to describe any kind of by-product generated from special anomalies?

    Edit: lol really? TRIBBLE is the new censor word? XD

    Sounds like she could be a cruiser with a science lean, or a full on Sci ship.

    This was one of the most dumb things the novels made up.

    The funny thing is that Enterprise (the series that is) implies that there's only 2 genders for Andorians and that whole thing is based on line Data said in TNG that could interpitted many ways.

    But will it be compatible with the Constellation Class skin? Inquiring players want to know.

    Creating an Ion Storm? That sounds interesting indeed!

    Yeah! +20% chance of your Captain being replaced by their evil counterpart from an alternate universe upon activation of any attack pattern......

    That would be nice actually, random chance of the original Iconian Dreadnaught "Obex" ship the game had that appeared in game before in the mission "The Return" that was 'removed' and Folded into "Where Angels Fear to Tread" like if you use the Triolic Pattern Enhancer on ground has a chance to bring: "Entities reported include Tribbles, 23rd century Klingon Dahar Masters, 23rd century Starfleet Security Officers, and Devidian Phantasms". I can't say I've seen more than Devidians (I've seen 2 spawn before from same deployment)...actually amazed they never implemented a chance of such with any space powers that make rift type things...

    Buran would/could be an excellent name for an Andorian Captain. Perhaps spelled as - B'urran. :)

    I couldn't post yesterday, but the Andorian zhen is a feminine gender (like a few posters above mentioned) but then the name of the captain starts with the "th" prefix, which denotes a thaan, or male gender... If the captain truly is one of the females of the species, her name should be zh'Pev, not th'Pev... At least that's how their names work, as far as I know...

    Also, the name Buran is what the Soviet's called their version of the space shuttle... It flew a few times, as far as I know... But they only built 1 and a half of them (meaning the second orbiter never got completed). So it is a fitting name as far as other ships named after American space shuttles go... Just an FYI...

    Otherwise, another good read!
