  • Hey yeah. the video was awesome.. I should have started with that. Keep playing around with DemoRecord and sharing the results. Maybe try doing a trek TV-show-style with your ship and different environments. If you want an original theme, I'll throw…
  • Oh I understand all that. I'm fine with it, actually. Because there is no hard rule that says a MMO cannot be both a sandbox and a theme park at the same time. The story missions are great. But what do we do in the periods between story content rele…
  • Just like they tantalize us with the view of the Reman compound on New Romulus. It's the place where our Reman character would feel most at home, yet we cannot go there. But we can see it...The gameworld doesn't matter to them. Just thehoops they ma…
  • Or how about remote pilot a workerbee into the dock area and do maintenance work on the ships in there. Or various systems inside the dock that maintain infrastructure and survivability for the whole station? One of those meta tasks I keep bringing …
  • No need to apologize... All MMO means is massively multiplayer Online. Star Trek Online qualifies under that limited description. What STO is not is a Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game. Oh we CAN roleplay in it. But whatever role we ass…
  • If Cryptic added anything that gave this game grear depth, I think I would have a heart attack from shock.
  • You don't get rich by throwing money at the same thing if it is truly failing to deliver. Trust me, just like lockboxes in STO, the metrics are telling CBS that New Trek is profitable based on actual internal tangibles. If those tangibles were to ta…
  • To me, it means that a lie has been exposed, more or less. We were told that we could not get into the ESD shuttle bay because it was incomplete and that it really isn't as big as it looks. Well, actually having the camera in there moving around, it…
  • Let's say there are 2 million downvotes to 100 thousand upvotes where the 2 million say they refuse to watch something or buy it because [reasons]. But when the views or sales are counted, 3 million people viewed or bought it. THat's the sort of thi…
  • No it hasn't. It is simply exposing underlying perspectives connected to not only the Janeway Class, but to the subject matter it originates from.
  • All fair points, but they discount the fact that there is an overlap of people who express their disdain for Discovery and Picard who watch them all the same. It does not matter what the upvote/downvote ratio is on a video if enough downvoters actua…
  • Of course you can. That is your prerogative, just as it is your prerogative to refuse to embrace an incarnation of a fictional series on the grounds that you simply don't like it. It's called individual entitlement to an opinion and active choice to…
  • But how widely IS it really despised? You may despise it. I may despise it. But in spite of us, it has its own following from people who likely look at the Trek shows WE love with the same level of disdain, for whatever reason. No matter what we ol…
  • My position that they should have created a foundational 32nd century branch for STO stands. We're not dealing with the same situation as we had with the Relativity and the Enterprise-J, both of which appeared in exactly one episode of a show and ga…
  • I was being sarcastic. But you cannot tell me that ships from CENTURIES into the future would not be equipped with offensive and defensive tech that would trounce pretty much anything. They would not be on par with 25th century ships. Whose fault …
  • Actually, for a long time people said that STO was not really true to Trek as it is so disjointed and illogical with how it handles its continuity... BUT... CBS has actually taken steps to make Star Trek itself disjointed and illogical with how it…
  • Did you watch S3 of Discovery? Detached nacelles are a thing in the 32nd century.
  • I don't like the inclusion of those ships either. We should have been given a choice of eras rather than just a mish mosh of everything just thrown together willy nilly with no meaning or purpose. Yes... "Time travel solves everything" It's one of…
  • This is beyond ridiculous. We have a ship that won't be in active service for 700 YEARS. This goes way beyond a ship that is rare. This is a ship that simply does not belong. Now... If Cryptic were to create a branch of the game set in the 32nd ce…
  • Awwwwww,,, That would mean we'd have to do what we say we're willing to do to get the nova: PAY SOME FREAKING MONEY!
  • Not with the intent to fail... Just the intent to cater to new players and people still creating new toons and running through existing content over and over again. To someone who already has the ships they want and is not interested in running the …
  • This is one of the things that ties into my dream of an industrialization gameplay loop. Something that gives players real reasons to obtain and use a wide variety of resources for the purpose of producing things as small as personal gear pieces all…
  • I'll take a 32nd Century uniform that comes with a 32nd century galactic map to be populated with all things relevant to S3+ of Discovery completely isolated from the rest of STO for a pure 32nd century era experience. Unlocking this would be done v…
  • In terms of adding systems, in order to add privateer in a way that would allow any player race to be a part of it while still retaining Faction-0 status would have to be pretty extensive. For example, in order for privateers to have gameplay that i…
  • Not taking the bait, Som. I told you I am done fighting with you over every little thing. - Exploration (players were getting lost in big rooms with only one way out and no obstructions.) - Foundry (what we were supposed to use to replace explorati…
  • I disagree. I believe they need to start pushing everything towards a common cooperative approach, reflecting the whole Alliance narrative, where all players are on the same team. The more demifactions they keep adding, the more divided up everythin…
  • Privatier could be possible as an origin story, and a character created as such could, like the Jem'hadar, start at Level 65. Rather than level through all the pre-existing stuff yet again, it could introduce a series of gameplay loops that feed int…
  • It all boils down to janky, poor design. And an indication that the devs who make the decision about these overwhelming effects do not actually play the game on live to be able to see the pixel vomit for themselves. If they play only under controlle…
  • I voted "Other" for the same reason why I don't buy anything: I do not believe in throwing money at what amounts to fluff items. I am only willing to pay for actual playable content, or the ability to unlock gameplay loops that provide actual stuff…
  • No reason to hate you. But I do need to point out that you represent the reason why it does no good for the vocal minority to speak out against what they insist is bad business practices on Cryptic's part, citing valid reasons for taking such a posi…
