  • Yeah, but they didn't have to be here at all. Do people play the game to hear the voice of some actor or to do things in the game? I can watch whatever Star Trek series/episode/move if I want to see those other guys in action. That Starfleet thought so much of me to give me command of a ship fresh out of the academy…
  • No need to feel bad for someone that made something that you do not enjoy. This is okay for me. Not the greatest, but not the worst. I mean, no malice involved but I think that episode quality has been going in the wrong direction for a while now. It feels that the emphasis has moved from our Captains to whichever voice…
  • I wonder if their analytics didn't tell them that consoles/items/modules with super-flashy graphics sold better. I was absolutely blinded in a run, well, yesterday now because of all the spammy visuals going off around me. You work to pull some skeletons to you and then someone sets off something that prevents you from…
  • And at least it's not a TFO that makes us remotely control characters that have had their brains removed, or perform surgery puzzles to re-install those brains.
  • Well, I have only done one puzzle, and that is giving it a lot more credit than it deserves... The room had a few glowies and the voice said "add this to the cauldron" so all you have to do is check the glowies until you find "this", then you can't grab anything else until you add it to the cauldron. The other thing I did…
  • Yeah, which is why most groups I have been in do not seem at all concerned with anything but getting done. The Wand and Old One pet are both prizes for completing 14 days worth of TFO. The few extra marks do not seem to be enough of a motivator for people to go cat hunting.
  • I encountered an issue in one of the Hurq missions this morning. Put on my Solonae EV suit and it started switching me between that and a generic EV suit. Gneric suit for ~3 seconds, then my Solonae suit for ~1 second, with my spotlight lighting up the screen, then back to generic, then back to Solonae, repeat, repeat,…
  • Let's not, since that has nothing to do with this. Meanwhile, back to this TFO and the "Old Ones", having just re-watched Catspaw it is just a quick mention, but also appears to bring up an issue here... Korob: "We have a duty to the Old Ones". Sylvia: "What do they know....". So this, to me, says that Korob and Sylvia are…
  • Yeah? And? I didn't design the mission, but it is what it is, and what it is is a colonist dump. And that is at best. If you send a high-quality bartender or diplomat or whatever other civvy away on the mission then it's a dump for them, too. At no point did I claim it was superior to Relocate Colonists or any other…
  • The above posts are all correct, but the exchange is the quickest way to go, and you can (probably) buy exactly the profession, race, and gender of bridge officers that you want*. And while buying the cheapest one available may hold some appeal, you can also take a look at their traits and maybe pay a little, or a lot,…
  • Yeah, it's basically designed as a colonist dump. You can build their numbers rather quickly, so they added a few dumps like this. I think it's a bit of an issue that they even allow you to slot non-colonists (and maybe allow for prisoners and refugees as well) in these slots, but I guess if someone wants to dump an…
  • Meh. I just want to get stuff done, so if I can send a single ship out then I do so, and when that mission gets done I have that many more ships available for the next admiralty missions and the next and so on. If you are just logging in, filling admiralty, and disappearing for a day or two then "saving ships" might seem…
  • So don't. For one, you are not required to complete every day in order to get the "headline" reward. Sure, you can earn some bonus dilithium on the extra days, but if you just want the Gagarin or the Wand or whatever, it doesn't require a full-event commitment. I have the Gagarin. I may or may not participate further in…
  • Hopefully this will be just the Halloween event while Hearts and Minds can remain a Friday the 13th event. Not that I expect that my Captain will use the wand, but Catspaw, to me, gave fans of the original series a practical demonstration of Clarke's famous quote more than actually bringing magic into Trek. This stuff…
  • When they said "Old Ones" I thought "Great Old Ones" and my mind immediately went to the Kelvans, who in their true form sound Lovecraftian to me. I guess a lot of beings can claim the title though. I mean, any ancient race, especially one that has died out, is close to dying out, or is widely believed to have died out,…
  • The Land of the Lost movie was made to be a comedy. The kid's show may not have been high entertainment but it was an adventure show, but when Hollywood decided to revisit it they couldn't be bothered to try and write even a mediocre adventure. And then there were the old "Jim Carrey as Steve Austin in a Six-Million Dollar…
  • There are images from the show, if that is what you mean. Maybe if this went on test someone might have some from the game, but if not then we'll have to make do with what they give us until it goes live.
  • I don't think that Trek is a great setting for "realistic". Space Above and Beyond lasted all of 23 episodes including the pilot. One season. Rated well on IMDB, with no show below a 7.0 (I know, not exactly a perfect measure of show quality, but it's all subjective anyway) but the network didn't want more. Too expensive?…
  • And I have done it many times for the event and have seen it every time. I won't pretend to remember if it was always this way during however many times I ran and re-ran it on various characters before , but it was certainly this way last night.
  • You can argue differences in presentation between different iterations of the franchise or even different episodes within the same series, but you can not argue that TOS, or any other show under the Trek umbrella, did not include social commentary. There are a lot of potential problems with presenting certain material,…
  • As has been said earlier, there are only two actual factions in the game. Want to add a new faction? Okay, I nominate Romulans. Of course, the question then becomes what to do with the "old" Romulans? There are, no doubt, a lot of Romulans that have friends in the game playing proper Federation or KDF Captains. Telling…
  • Maybe they could sell some prefixes, including an option not to have one on any ship. But the prefix bundle and any ship could be the "H.M.S. Whatever" or the "So-And-So" with no prefix at all. And those are just two examples. If it's available for some ship then the bundle would make it available for all. Everyone could…
  • And a few more,,, Doing Butterfly, towards the end of the first cutscene the Klingon in charge suddenly had a rifle in his hand while at the conference table. Gave me a serious mafia vibe. "We're going to put the hit on the Iconians, see? And if you don't like it, my little friend here has a few words for you, see?" Also,…
  • No thanks. Don't care. Seven is not my Captain. The game and the stories should be about our Captains and how the decisions they make help shape the galaxy around them. A lot of what I disliked about Delta Rising goes back to how the "guest stars" were used, and this has carried into other episodes with other guest stars.…
  • I think that they should tie it to the accolade. Character has visited the ships and got the accolade? President doesn't talk to you.
  • I'm just borrowing the analogy that was used. Not commenting upon how accurate or inaccurate I may think it is.
  • I'll say again: I am not interested in playing a Terran Captain. Not as my main. If they allowed us to play as renegade Terrans then I would make one just to see the story. It's a safe bet that they would merge with the rest of us at level 10 so it would be a quick and easy look. If there was a Terran recruitment event and…
  • But they promised a uniform. They showed a uniform. They did not at any time explain that the uniform pictured was not what you would get, let alone that it didn't include any pants at all. And if they want to try and pass off some free-to-own pants as the "correct" pants for the uniform then they should have shown those…
  • It has to be possible, doesn't it? I mean, every character's appearance is in the game, so the game should be able to read it and reproduce it. And whatever gear, skills, abilities, etc., our captain and away team have are things that the game "knows". Players are superior to the AI, but if they buff them up (more damage,…
  • Did they use the "tight basic" pants in the image/advertisement? No? Then those are not the "correct" pants.
