    Here is a screen cap from the video, it's a bit blurry but you can clearly see Lorca

    If mirror Lorca could blend into Starfleet so well, prime Lorca is probably capable of surving in the Terran Empire. Though he might really have PTSD this time...

    What was it Spock said? "It was far easier for you as civilized men to act as barbarians, than for them as barbarians to act like civilized men."

    Well... the problem with Prime Lorca's survival is that apparently the ISS Buran was already tagged as a rebel ship and was being actively hunted by the Charon or some other loyalist ship. Not only that, I think she was destroyed too.

    While I am seriously super excited for this... This is what we were surpose to go to a 3rd party site to see?
    Please STO, just stick to announcing things here on their own site, and don't do this again.

    Cryptic, would you actulaly like me to spend actual Money? It's Simple:
    • Full, Story-driven, select from start 1-50 Klingon Side
    • Scrap current Lock Box & Lobi system for something more reasonable
    • Expand Dil and Rep/Fleet Marks to regular story content

    As i seem to recall didnt Lorca die?

    Mirror Lorca did. Or was absorbed by the mycelial network.......

    Prime Locra.... well, we know he swapped places with his Mirror-Counterpart; the assumption was that he probably wouldn't have survived in the Mirror Universe; however it was never addressed further and was thus left open-ended, so who knows?

    the ISS Buran exploded immediately after Prime Lorca crossed over, unfortunately it is assumed he died.

    Can we pretty please get those hairstyles (for Lorca and Landry) in the costume editor? Pretty please? :smiley:
    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

    Is this the last part of the Discovery expansion? Can someone/thing else take the spotlight?
  • rattler2rattler2 Member Posts: 56,051 Community Moderator
    I'd love to have Landry's hairstyle too.

    Jason Isaacs Well done. The first Star Trek Captain to join STO. Would be wicked if one day we had Archer, Lorca, Pike, Saru (presuming he will be captain in S3), Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway All in one expansion or game up date.

    Also this isn't an expansion. By the time they're finished with it it will be the size of an expansion, but it is not classified as an actual expansion. Frankly I'd call it a beefier season. But its not Expansion level beefy.

    Commander Landry? "I'm gonna shoot that Tardigrade till it tells me how to use it as a weapon" Landry? The most ridiculous, condescending, wanna be badass chief of security in the history of Star Trek? I can't wait to meet her..

    No.

    Cryptic has talked about how, by the time the Discovery content is done, there will be two full arcs. This likely referring to how Age/Mirror of Discovery are two arcs in the journal.

    A full arc in STO is MINIMUM 5 missions, more typically its around 7-8. So, if there are two full arcs, we would need a minimum of 10, but probably closer to 14-16 missions. Rise of Discovery is only adding another 2 missions, bringing our total to 6, so we have at least 2, probably closer to 4-5, more Discovery content releases.

    Now, Cryptic did say the stories will likely jump around a lot more. So this might be the end of the Discovery content for now, as they wait for actors to become available, but we are likely not even half way through the Discovery content in general.

    We still need the
    -Playable Discovery Andorians, Tellarites, and Saurians
    -Discovery era Klingon costume parts
    -All of the remaining Discovery era Fed and KDF ships
    Cryptic has said they are going to do.

    yes, this is the last Discovey expansion, there is no more content to base any missions on as the Discovery and its crew are now 930 years in the future (from 2257).

    Props for getting Jason Isaacs hes a great actor & Lorca was my only draw for the 1st season.
    That said im sad its all Discovery based at the moment as its not the strongest of the ip thats for sure

    Cryptic has literally said otherwise.

    And you seem to forget that all of the Discovery content so far has only involved stuff from season 1, there is still all of season 2 to draw from like the Red Orb, the Talosians, Terralysium, Section 31, the Red Angel suit, Boreth time crystals, etc. etc.

    i'm literally basing this on what cryptic has said

    Except you are obviously not as Al Rivera has talked about how long the Discovery arcs will be, and many of the things the Discovery expansion will end up having, and Rise of Discovery isn't bringing it.

    Hell, we already know there is another Discovery themed event in June as the second part of the "earn a free T6 ship via coupon" event, as well as the release of the Disco Connie and D7.

    a new connie dosen't mean there will be new missions

    And we actually have a thread in General Discussion asking what players would like to see included from Season 2. :smirk:

    One thing I wonder is how they'll portray Prime!Lorca to contrast with the deadly serious, morally-lacking Mirror one.

    Personally, I'm half-jokingly hoping for his personality being close to Adam West's Batman:

    "Hello, old time-travely chums! Are you on some kind of time star trek or something?"
    "Holy smelly Tellarite phaser, Ellen! Get me the Klingon-repellent phasers online, if it's not too much to ask!"
    "Some days, you just can't get rid of a warp core breach!"
