    I have no idea who it is, the voice does not sound familiar to me, but I will say this, whatever its about definitely involves the borg in some way. Listen to this recording from a couple weeks ago:

    https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11341963

    Its in the background and not easy to hear but 'we are the borg' among other things cuts into what he is saying at times, so whatever is going on definitely involves the borg in some way

    I'm calling it now, given that if the regular cycle holds, its an expansion year, whatever we're leading up to is going to involve the borg, a storyline or possibly a cooperative faction. The fact that the borg TFO missions are being revamped and pushed, the seven of nine overhaul, new borg related equipment is being made front and center for the TFOs and the fact that cryptic has been building up to it for years with not so subtle hints in various missions over the last few years that things have changed with them and they have become a bigger threat (remember the start of the 2800? or the stuff about the borg assimilating something new that made them far more powerful and led to the whole assimilated romulus incident?) and given the picard series focus on the borg, at least for the time being, it does make sense to push things toward a borg centric storyline for awhile. Even the TFO event rifle looks like it came out of the picard series. It very much seems like they are attempting to use the focus of the picard series to draw people into STO and vice versa

    Now just to be clear, i'm not saying the anniversary event has anything directly related to do with said storyline, i'm just saying i'd bet good money that its coming. It also wouldn't surprise me if something in said event hinted at it in some way. Remember how that went with the romulan expansion being hinted at a a bit during one of the anniversary events?

    So mark my words, whatever is coming is going to be borg related. The TFOs, new borg equipment and hints like these audio logs are only the first indications of it

    First off, thank you for posting that other transmission. I have been looking to see if there were others I missed out on and I couldn't find any. I had ignored the forums for quite a long while do to negativity and fighting and was wondering if I had missed other clues. This helps a lot. I had not heard that one before.

    And you are quite right about there being the sound of "We are the Borg.." in the background of this recording. And so that does seem to point more to this being a Borg themed event. I had just figured they were redoing the Borg related content in preparation for ST Picard themed stuff later this year.

    Still, this doesn't mean the anniversary event will have anything to do directly with ST Picard. CBS would never risk allowing Cryptic to reveal their new show's surprises before enough of that show's episodes air.

    I still wonder if Control is involved as well (though to be absolutely honest, I wish Control would just forever vanish into the inky intergalactic blackness, as it haunts my nightmares about where its supposedly been all these years, lol; doubt that will ever happen though).

    Based on the latest transmission, it sounds like we might get to fight the borg with Abe Lincoln.

    It would be cool if it was an Abe Lincoln android from the Theme Park Planet.

    Guess I got some TOS episodes and characters mixed up. Glad I checked. Had thought Lincoln was an android created on the "Amusement" Park Planet, when in fact he was created by the Excalbians. Oops. Still....a cool idea though.......

    Saw a Tweet from WoW that is using this same type image beneath the Words. Sorry, I just don't like this type of stuff. Looks like menu items bled through the paper.

    Only two years have passed in-game. That means two of their years ago, the Iconians were not yet fully on the radar and the Klingons were fighting the Federation. It was a war pushed forward by J'mpok, supposedly to help the Empire and stop the Undine infiltration. Maybe your right. And then again, maybe J'mpok just got far more war and fighting than he ever wanted and is now sick of it. Who knows?
    Two years ago, in 2409, the Empire was mighty. Ambassador B'vat, who (judging by some of his dialog) may have been under Undine influence at the time, pushed for war with the Federation, supposedly because only in war can a Klingon truly be Klingon. With that voice at his back, Jm'pok (who truly is more politician than warrior, which in an Imperial chancellor is a good thing) felt it necessary to push the war. It isn't until B'vat is removed as a consideration that Jm'pok feels the pressure lighten to the point that he can begin subtle peace overtures with the Federation - and then the Romulan Republic, with their discovery of the ancient Iconian gateways both beneath mol'Rihan's surface and in space, forces everyone's hand. It's ally or die time, and as every Klingon knows, only a fool fights in a burning house.

    By the time the threat of the Iconians is reduced, the Empire has seen what Quark observed years before - that the Federation, when pushed to the wall, can fight as honorably (and as viciously) as any blooded Klingon. Popular support for the Alliance has grown. Jm'pok would be a fool indeed not to ride those currents - which also afford him the luxury of allowing his Alliance partners to bear the brunt of fighting the Hur'q, as the KDF is still recovering from their massive losses against Iconian forces. The Fleet can rebuild, while Martok and Worf take the more agitated Houses with them alongside Feds and Roms in Gamma Quadrant.

    Nothing "strange" about it at all, just smart.

    The picture is not as clear as usual... Almost like... scan lines or something?
    Is this another hidden message?

    If that's the case, then Cryptic is pulling out ALL the stops for the community detectives to have fun.

    I think they were referring to the actual post, which makes it clear that anyone will be able to fly anyone's ships before long, at least in some fashion. Which makes that new logo in the background of the first post make sense.

    That being said, you're right, that's definitely another message. Someone better at cryptology than me will need to figure that one out, though.

    The voice kind of reminds me of Peter Cullen's voice. If we got Optimus Prime or KARR in the game, I sure would be a happy player. :D

    Listening to them a few more times, it sounds to me like it might be James Cromwell, and maybe this could be Zefram Cochrane? His ending in TOS was a bit nebulous, after all.

    It's too crisp and clear to be James Cromwell - his voice is a bit more 'throaty' (gruff?) than this.
    I'd be willing to bet, if it is a character we've met before, it will be someone that turned up for an episode or two and was seemingly never heard from again. It would certainly fit the Cryptic/STO team pattern of pulling on story threads from single episodes or two-parters and turning them into something far more significant.

    Or Kahless. They were both on Excalbia.

    It's quite distorted but it does sound like it could be Kevin Conway ( who also played him in STTNG ).

    IDK - to me it sounded more like J. G. Hertzler, who's played many a Klingon over the years (but I believe 'Martok' was the Klingon character he's most known for.)

    If so they probably would re-record the dialog from House Pegh since Kahless was in that mission too.

    Given that

    it would make some sense for him to
    re-awaken as a new clone,
    commenting on memories being intact and whatnot.
