Please can you make the idea for "PvP Racing" (please click for more info) in STO a reality and if you can, what priority would you give the idea, and approximately how long do you think the idea would take to implement?

The idea was inspired by the Voyager episode called "Drive", thank you for your time, I hope you, the team and the players like the idea.

We recognize that there are a lot of great ideas for PVP gameplay or match types. We’ll be evaluating these as we take a closer look at end game and finding designs that make sense and are fun for everyone to play. I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to add a match similar to the one you suggested within the next several updates.

Thank you, thank you and thank you! :)

"Dstahl: We will be introducing an item set in the Season 3 release. These items are new special rewards for completing the STFs. These items are thematic Borg components that when equipped on your ship not only provide the stat bonus with the set, but with each item you slot, unique Borg FX and GEO is added to your ship model (we expect this to work with almost all ships). The concept comes from Voyager where they added specific Borg tech to their ship in order to survive specific encounters in the Gamma Quadrant. They look pretty cool. Here’s a screenshot of an Escort enhanced with these items."

I like this BUT I hope we have the option to toggle the appearance off like we do w/ the body armor and kits.

I wouldn't be surprised if they add the option. Shouldn't be too much of a bother to add.

That Saber looks awesome by the way.

I absolutely LOVE the Borg add-ons. Any chance of Undine parts 'currupting' the ship for ultra high regens?

OOooohhh, shiny.

I'm waiting for Caitian BOs myself.

And the talk of "first person aiming" sounds interesting. I thought that STO's ground would be more like Mass Effect. Maybe it will be?

I liked the Tholian. I wish I could remember that guy who really wanted tholian as a playable race back before launch.


I don't know about the rest of you but passive ability crew sound great. I find myself getting new officers and even though I have plenty of officer slots open for my ship, I rarely use them. If they don't have an ability I want, I discard them. It would be nice to have a use for them.

Reading through the Q&A it really looks like this game is going the right direction. Even though I will never purchase a lifetime sub for any MMO, looks like I'll be sticking around the game for a while :)
