  • Wait, what?? And here, I had been warming up to the idea of Mirror Leeta showing back up to be a nuisance every now and then, like STO's version of Team Rocket. :/ And to hide it in a short story in some magazine that clearly not all of us read...why in the hell would that not have put something like that in one of the…

  • Since I don't watch TRIBBLE, this was my first time actually hearing him talk. I now better understand what people mean when they complain that the awful rubber suits hinder their actors' performance. That being said, as a hammy Saturday morning cartoon-level, T'Kuvma actually reminds me of a lot of the other named foes…
  • This is not going to end well. Something that game developers and the elitist tryhard types never seem to understand, regardless of the game in question, is that removing the path of least resistance doesn't magically make harder content more appealing to the players that weren't bothering with it. A combination of three…
  • The only reason why we're even getting a KDF variant is so they can point to it when KDF-aligned Romulans and Jem'hadar ask where their Recon Destroyer is. The announcement that Romulan and Jem'hadar players could fly their allies ships was actually a small boon to the KDF, since it may have insured that they will at least…
  • Yup, as soon as I saw the announcement that Romulan and Jem'hadar commanders would have access to their chosen allies ships, I knew the main reason was so they didn't have to worry about making Romulan and Dominion variants each time they made a new set of ships. Heck, we should probably consider ourselves "lucky" whenever…
  • Power-hungry TRIBBLE, then. Have any of them given a sign that they're not all that on board with the whole "war with the Federation" thing? Worried about family, friends, or even themselves or the cost to the Empire? Has any of them served as a character unto themselves and not as merely an obstacle for the protagonists…
  • Is there diversity among TRIBBLE's "Klingons"? As I understand it, they all tend to just be bloodthirsty TRIBBLE, with only varying degrees of fanaticism and/or intelligence.
  • I consider myself a liberal. I don't care that the main character is female, black, or has what is traditionally a guy's name. I don't care that there is apparently an openly TRIBBLE relationship on the show. I DO care that the focus on the main character seems to come at the expense of developing TRIBBLE's side…
  • I was actually thinking about making a thread in Ten Foward (since it deals more with Discovery as show then STO) specifically asking what fans of Discovery actually like about it. I've seen plenty of people give reasons why they dislike Discovery (even if some of them are a little silly) but as you said, most of TRIBBLE's…
  • That article actually does pretty good job of detailing most of my own issues with Discovery. Thinking about it now, I actually shouldn't worry as much, since I don't really think Cryptic's writers are capable of the same level of "grimdark" as Discovery's showrunners. They kind of tried during the Iconian war, but it's a…
  • There's a line from Overwatch that Torbjorn occasionally says upon loading into the Omnic Monastery, that keeps repeating in my head.... "NononononoNO. N.O. NOOOO." Another good one is: "This is like the culmination of a thousand of my worst nightmares!" Though in my case, I apparently wasn't worried enough about the…
  • Ugh, following up an expansion about my favorite Star Trek series with one about that...abomination. And adding yet another Federation mini-faction, to boot. I occasionally feel bad about the fact that I tend to do what I have to for unlocks and then just shelve alts from recruitment events, but this will be one alt that I…
  • I will likely be playing a Jem'hadar, instead.
  • My feelings as well. I was already somewhat disappointed by the news of playable Cardassians being made available, since that likely means no official Cardassian "mini-faction" for the foreseeable future, but was still planning on eventually making a Cardassian character regardless, and was simply going to wait for another…
  • Having the same issue. Went to Japori to likewise complete the endeavor, and now my character seems to be stuck permanently in a loading screen. Restarting the game did not help, nor did turning off on-demand patching. I have a really bad feeling our characters are gonna be stuck in limbo until the next actual patch goes…
  • Ironically enough, I normally find most of the Cryptic-designed Fed ships to be absolutely wretched looking and yet...I actually kind of like these. Not a big fan of some of the individual parts, like the nacelles and such, but otherwise, I actually like the overall design, from the quad engines to the more pronounced hull…
  • Yeah, unfortunately, even if people do actually test things on Tribble and report bugs or provide feedback, it's still ultimately up to Cryptic as to whether they will address those bugs or take that feedback into serious consideration. Also, you know the current state of the game isn't optimal when even certain members of…
  • I'm not a big fan of the look of the Suliban Flight Deck Cruiser itself, or the ship's stats...but yeah, the thought of having a squadron of little Suliban cell ships did almost make me reconsider my purchasing decisions. :D I'm not sure how much anyone from Cryptic marketing actually pays attention to these threads, but…
  • Likewise, even before Admiralty, I rarely queued up for things, unless that was the only way to earn marks/Elite marks. And even then, only to get what I wanted out of a given Reputation. Otherwise, I'd rely on runs through the Voth Battlezone, event rewards, and the conversion of unused marks to get my daily allotment of…
  • This is probably the most excited I've been for a guest voice actor from one of the original shows in a long time. I'm not a huge Klingon fan, but I did always like Martok. Worf may have had a heavily idealized notion of what a Klingon warrior should be, but I always felt that Martok came the closest to living up to that…
  • I haven't spent a dime on STO since Delta Rising originally came out, and I also got the TOS crew email. I'm also a primarily Romulan player, who grew up with TNG and DS9, and thus have no particular affinity for TOS. A free gift is a free gift, but I can't help feeling like this might have gone to someone a bit more…
  • It would actually be one hell of a twist if it turned out the Lukari were villainous this whole time, but I sincerely doubt that will end up being the case. Us being at New Kentar right as the Tzenkethi decide to protomatter bomb their moon isn't any more of coincidence then when any of the starships from the shows came…
  • I actually completely forgot about that mechanic. I tried the whole "turn into a Borg" thing once, but noticed that it screwed up my hotbars, even when I got back to my character, and decided not to mess with it again. Likewise, I've only see one enemy player turn into a Borg, and they didn't really seem to do much of…
  • The only part I still find problematic is the little "maze" with the floating balls of death. Even if one is doing that part correctly, it can still be slow going depending on how those things decide to drift about. I feel like, if you have two teams of relatively equal skill and gear, the winning team will almost always…
