Deep Space Nine Wormhole?
 
I had my first trip to deep space nine last night as i thought i would have a fly around cardassian space - saw some very nice large ships (compared to my little escort!).

I went into the DS9 system and was excited to see the wormhole (not knowing if it was there or not) and to my surprise it was... but... it doesn't look anything like what we see in the show! it looks for much of a better word... horrible.

To me it looked like a spiral blue galaxy with a bright yellow exploding centre, I was quite dissappointed to be honest!

Now i'm sure in the past i have played a star trek game which has got the wormhole correct (although i can't remember which one)

other than the wormhole i found DS9 quite nice, had a little run around the prominard looked at the stuff i couldn't buy (being at lt.com lvl3) then went on my way back to federation space.

does anyone else think the wormhole looks rubbish or is it just me?

Seeing as how the wormhole looks lika blue spiral with a yellow center in the show, I think it looks nice.

I haven't seen it yet - I really need to visit DS9 tonight - but according to your description it sounds a lot like the wormhole looked in ST-DS9.

I thought it looked fine. Hopefully at some point we get some missions that involve going through it.

If only those missions had a decent frame rate it would be nice :P

Although it doesn't look exactly like it did in DS9, I still think it looks good enough.

You do, and theyre good fun. But don't expect to be visiting the Gamma Quadrant because that doesn't happen ;)

I'm not going to say anymore, except that if you see certain ships which shouldn't be in that area of space, then rest assured that it IS explained as part of the whole DS9/wormhole storyarc :)

Just out of curiosity, What level and how do you pickup the Cardassia/wormhole missions?
Thanks

If I recall correctly, the main DS9 / wormhole missions are given at about Captain 5 ish. Which is odd because you are actually given quests for that area (Patrol, Exploration and Defend missions) at Captain 1, so it leaves you wondering about certain things until they are explained later.

Btw, whoever gave the go ahead to put in the two Entertainment commodities / stem bolts missions (which is just prior to the DS9/Wormhole missions) needs shooting. Why force players to spend that amount of money just to complete a mission? Its ridiculous and unbelievable. Its part of the main storarc missions and therefore must be completed, but to expect players to mess about like that is just silly.
