    Well, we did kinda TRIBBLE off one of them near the end of the Gamma Quadrant storyline (and it just happened to be the same one whose hatred for the alliance remained undiminished), so it would make sense if that resulted in new hostilities. But I don't think it would be a large-scale conflict like before. The remaining Iconians no longer hold the grudge they once did with the alliance, and some even realized the extent of the misunderstanding/tragedy that led to the war in the first place.

    I would, however, point out...I do not miss the EM-probe carpet bombing their ships do.

    There was a lose end there though. We didnt see if that one Iconian survived or not the Hurq attack

    I don't see the Iconians getting involved again. They just want to be left alone.

    T'Ket is probably in no position to really pose a threat after the Hur'q rampage.

    Yeah, Cryptic has previously stated they left T'ket alive simply so that it makes the Iconian TFOs are still going on.

    They have no plans to kill T'ket, and the other Iconians just want to be left alone to rebuild their homeworld. I doubt we will see them in any big narrative again.

    They wont, this game is clearly only pushing forward as being one big advertisement for NuTrek, so unless the writers throw Iconians somewhere into the shows we wont see them.

    Probably not. But it would be nice to be able to visit the ones that don't hate us anymore and see how they are doing.

    You know, supposedly the Iconians withdrew to rebuild Iconia. It would be nice at some point in the future to be able to visit it, even as a social zone. That said I understand such social zones cant be a priority when they have to manage time during content releases

    Well, it could be a copy/paste of the original Iconia world we visited at the end of the Iconian War story chapter. That would reduce some of the workload required to create a new zone. Heck, it could be akin to New Romulus, where we get a few repeatable daily quests to help them rebuild. But, yeah, that kind of 'content' hasn't really been a priority for a while.

    they don't WANT our help to rebuild - in fact, l'miren specifically told us to TRIBBLE off and leave them alone for the next thousand or so years at the end of midnight - not in those exact words, obviously, but the meaning was clear​​

    Would be cool to get a storyline where we ally with the friendly Iconians against something, maybe a resurgent Borg Collective armed with assimilated Herald technology?

    1. There is no such thing as "NuTrek." The current shows are part of Star Trek rather you like it or not.
    2. Cryptic cannot be faulted for going with the current shows and story lines. It's simply the only sensible thing to do and frankly, they're doing a great job story wise.

    Whilst I can't see them appearing again as the focus of any storyline I have to say I hope that we do see T'Ket again since she was moving through deep space, doing heaven knows what, with a planet-sized chip on her shoulder that was only made worse by the events in 'Quark's Lucky Seven'.

    I mean, whilst I doubt the Iconian's will be a the forefront of any storyline I guess it isn't completely beyond the realms of possibility that T'Ket and her fleet could again be unwilling participants in 'current events' even if only through being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    We still do not know if T'Ket survived the encounter with the Hurq though. We see her ship sustaining heavy internal damage and afterwards we pretty much leave the scene. Personally I am pretty curious as to what happened, even if she didnt survive it would be nice if we had some lore blog or something over it. Also IF she didnt survive, and considering the Iconians are so few they value every single member too much, what would be the remaining iconians reaction towards the Ferengi? Would they attack Ferenginar for revenge and Federation would have to choose whether to help them or not? I mean maybe the remaining Iconians would blame it on T'ket if she had attacked - but in that case the Ferengi squad infiltrated the ships, so technically the Ferengis started the attack and not T'ket which could be grounds for a retaliation.

    we do know - she was still alive when the temporal accords were signed​​

    I dont remember any mention of her on temporal arcs, could it be you remember some mention of her during butterfly. There is also mention of T'ket on Quarks Lucky Seven on DS9 computers before we actually go to her ship.
  • paradox#7391 paradox Member Posts: 173 Arc User
    T'Ket will probably be the only one returning since the majority of Iconians went with L'Miren to rebuild their society.

    Kagran does, but it happened WAY before Quark's Lucky Seven.

    I wouldn't mind seeing the Iconians again. Like having L'Miren, tarsev and "Patel" showing up asking for our help due to some external problems the Whole can't solve, like for example, a certain megalomaniac Emperor wanting to do some crazy stunt on Iconia with a reality-shattering weapon bringing out insane Elachi to try and look cool and badass, to regain some clout.

    Anyone remember YEARS ago before this main Iconian storyline there was that npc Iconion ship that was black & rib-cage looking? It is now a Quas towing the Leahval in that "Cutting the Cord" mission. It was before these current majestic looking Herald/Iconian ships but I wish Cryptic would bring that 1 ship back somehow since it looked menacing, albeit it would probably be a gambling method.

    Calling it how it is...we don't refer as JJTrek as just Trek so it's the same with Kurtzman Trek. After all it shares nothing in common with canon and a lot of stuff in common with JJTrek

    Thanks reyan01, that is a nice screenshot of it too. I always thought it looked a bit goofy it towing that much larger Scimitar, but dang that Obex looks lethal & just mean.

    Its all Star Trek. There is no separate franchise called JJTrek. That is just something that people who don't like it put on there to separate it from everything else, and at times use it as an insult.
    The official line on "JJTrek" is the Kelvin Timeline. And since it is well established that alternate realities exist in Star Trek... its Star Trek. Just set in an alternate reality.
    Its basically trying to say nothing new exists by giving it a lable to divorce it from everything.

    Not entirely true, I continue to use terms like 'JJTrek' and 'JJPrise' but I also enjoyed the movies and hope they can eventually get a deal together to make a fourth. 'JJTrek' is just what I got used to calling that alternate universe, it took seven years and three movies for the people in charge to decide to finally give it an official name which was WAY too long imo, so I will stubbornly stick with 'JJTrek' and 'JJPrise' until the day I die.
