  • Wow. I rag on DSC and I get read the riot act. I point out my issues with Voyager, and those same people nod and go "what might of been". What a strange world I live in. But love the discussion.
  • > @azrael605 said: > Ugg, Year of Hell was junk, as for Equinox, I'd have spaced Ransom as soon as I found out about the experiments. Sisko had about the same depth as Lorca to be honest. Holding on to 6 century old grudges, commiting war crimes, lots of other problems. DS9 in general, as a lifelong reader of really good…

  • You have to talk to Kennington, go around the Academy, accept the next mission then you can get the Walker.
  • 1. Time travel to missing eras of Trek. IE ten years between TMP and TWOK, 70 years between the launch of ENT B and ENT D 2. C store Connie, even if DSC.(I know, never happen). 3. Tier 6 nova 4. Go find new Khitomer 5. Go meet Ben Sisko in the temple 6. SANDBOX! I'd like things to do besides red alerts and replaying…

But Science Vessels are not about doing damage with weapons, that's the realm of Escorts and Klingon ships. When you engage Aux weapons your main attacks are reduced in strength. > > I know the DPS…
  • Yeah it's a bug. For any non DSC ship on the Fed side, you get the engine power up sound for DSC, then standard warp out sound. Hopefully it gets fixed because it's damned annoying.
  • > @brian334 said: > The size of the ship is a non-issue. It matters not at all to the story. If it's 200 meters or 700, what real difference does it make? We're talking about a pretend spaceship set in a pretend future with actors portraying pretend people in a pretend war. Why is it so hard then to pretend that the size…

  • (Moderated posts redacted. -- StarSword-C) And guess what I like: https://goo.gl/images/AEW2eo Not that TOS Connie is a bad looking lady. But I like my Prometheus.

  • > @jonsills said: > Basically, Som, they hate DSC for reasons they are either unable or unwilling to articulate, and will instead seize on non-canon information from outside sources to claim that canon "is broken" (when even TOS couldn't decide on the size or crew complement of the Enterprise; Pike claimed responsibility…
  • > @khan5000 said: > Its a visual reboot. If it's the same size, sure. But when you take a 250 meter ship and make her 432 meters, that's not a visual reboot. That's like trying to claim USS Enterprise CVN-65 is a visual reboot of USS Enterprise CV-6.

  • Damn it, long overdue for a tier 6 Nova. My wallet is ready. Only thing that would be more epic, if I could mount aux DC. I'd bounce off walls. Or an AUX DBB or AUX omni. Come on cryptic. DO EEITTTT.
