    Why are the devs obsessed with baseball? I just don't understand...

    I am also not looking forward to the additional optical spam and obnoxious effects that will come with these new universal kit mods.

    The ship is ugly, but I do like the new floater and powerboard (I had to try quite hard to come up with something to compliment about this announcement).

    Nice, the ship I voted for seems to have won?
    Even though it looks like the design got handed off to a Jem'hadar manufacturer. It's very bugship like. :D
    The original picture seems a bit more sleek.

    I had the exact same thoughts! The bug ship is really nice IMO, as are all other J'H ships, but on this it kind of looks a bit odd. Just hoping in-game and from other angles it will be better.

    Mostly, I understand, because Sisko is a big fan. That does not, however, mean that STO shouldn't branch out. For example, into football (the variety much of the world refers to as 'the beautiful game'; I'm sure the art team could have a field day coming up with the uniform patterns and color schemes. Yes, this would extend to the ball, given that it would be part of certain relevant emotes.

    I'm assuming you're referring to what we Americans call Soccer. (As our Football is rather... heavily armored and not really global)
    As far as I'm aware, sports haven't really been visible in Star Trek other than Baseball and Water Polo. I think they showed part of a bowling alley aboard the refit Enterprise in TMP.

    Sigh. Another year of skipping the outfits. :/

    edit: which also means I won't need to restock on Favors. Which means no reason to do anything beyond the 1/day ship earning. Yay, summer.

    I was hoping this would be the best summer event EVER since they were late over a month...now another copy/paste event with more baseball stuff (getting olddddddd), a boring ship and nothing new. Only left thing to do is party and just hang out.​​

    Or....and this might sound really wild.... something that has nothing to do with sports at all... seriously, this isn't fifa or some sports game, why are the devs so obsessed with those baseball stuff? Let me guess...because it's a easy copy&paste job?
    The amount of people I see run around in those 'uniforms' is near 0, am i just super 'unlucky' and don't wander around the baseball hotspot?
    Give us something we actually WANT to use :/

    How many people do you see actually running around in those 'uniforms', the number of people i see using those is pretty much 0, am i missing the 'baseball hotspot'?
    This was a fun idea for 1 summer event...but since it's easier to just copy&paste we are now stuck with those boring things -_-

    Usually start seeing more and more around summer. Also people like having the baseball caps as options too.

    For the people throwing a fit over a uniform, at least it's not never ending horrible Discovery content. I'd rather have your problem. Anyway, love the red cap! Definitely gonna pick that up. The band shirts are pretty cool too.

    As for the kit modules, looks like I can add something to my electrical character, and maybe start a .....lava build?

    I've already got a pyro, so I'll be getting that module for her.

    Huzzah! We get a space blimp! At least that's what it looks like.
  • disqord#9557 disqord Member Posts: 567 Arc User
    They're giving us band tees but NOT making one a Caitian screech metal band that Kyona talked about in the First Contact Day blog? They could even make it a parody of kiss by naming them "H.I.S.S." Cats even have those wicked fur patterns from Ferasans, it's the perfect idea!

    I can always hope for next year.
  • disqord#9557 disqord Member Posts: 567 Arc User
    The lack of content overall and most of it just being recolors of the boring baseball stuff is lame though. The modules and kit might be cool for a few hours, but that's all that's super interesting.
  • rattler2rattler2 Member Posts: 53,036 Community Moderator
    I have a feeling the "Year of Klingon" influenced the band shirts.

    Yeah, but the Kit and Modules will be overpriced as is everything in the Summer Store. Winter is a bargain in comparison.

    I've never really found it overpriced, since I can get 500 in a 15m Horgahn Hunt, and in past years I was always Hunting often to get eggs to raise birds for rep marks. So I've always been swimming in thousands of Favors.

    There's just been a lack of stuff to buy the last ~3 years. :|

    (but yeah, Winter is cheaper/easier - just doing a daily set of Doff missions on several alts, I ended up with 1.5k+ of each ornament stored in my "holiday mule's" bank.)

    I do not like the overall look of the ship this year, but I do like how the warp half-rings have the Lukari engine vapor like the N'Kaam. The longer sleeker version in the voting illustrations was good, this one is just chunky and fugly like the Defiant class mated with a Dominion bug under an ugly tree (it is way past ugly stick level of ugly).

    System wise it looks good from the little bit they showed in the stream, though I wish they would have made it something besides a Pilot ship again (what's with this Risan obsession with Pilot?), it is great for the corvette but this thing looks like it would do better with Miracle Worker or Intelligence. And it would be nice to have had something besides just the Daystrom/Antaak/Varel for a sci-MW, especially one with a secondary deflector like the summer ship has.

    I can see the point that Risa and baseball have little canon connection.

    But what about another sport that was a major sport of 1 on-screen captain, and it happens to be a sport played in water? Archer's calling, give us some Water Polo!

    (Or not.)

    Ship #1, eh? Well... there goes any enthusiasm I had for this summer event.
  • captaincelestialcaptaincelestial Member Posts: 1,704 Arc User
    To be honest, I was expecting a big red nose on the Rainbow Caracel. It reminds me of a carnival clown :)
  • rattler2rattler2 Member Posts: 53,036 Community Moderator
    Eactly! The only ties between Baseball and Star Trek are a couple scenes and a few more lines of dialogue. That's it.

    Um... a whole episode says Hello.

    I think its mostly a difference of currencies. Winter has several, while Summer has only one. I do admit that it would be nice if everything was a bit cheeper, but I guess it is what it is. At least the Summer activities are more laid back than Winter events.

    Also it looks like all swimwear ever invented already made it into STO :P

    Having a science ship from it will be interesting, for certain. But no more creative name than "Return to Risa"? I bet it'd get more attention if it were labeled "Summer Event 2020: Gorns in Speedos!" ;)​​

    Nice. Seriously though, sometimes my characters feel more like X-men than officers.

    I like how the ship turned out. I just recently discovered that I like the corvette, I hope this one is a bit bigger. And maybe next year it could be a drone/swarmer carrier pig-1.gif​​
