Brains Before Bounty(by Dixonium)
 
Do yourself a favor and play this mission now(or soon =p). It really is excellent, and feels like a single story Featured Episode. Funny thing is, I just stumbled across it by accident. I havent seen it advertised anywhere, and it was near the bottom of the list with no ratings or reviews. Glad I found it :)

Just played it. This is a really well done mission.

I was hoping someone would just stumble across it one of these days!

Wow. I mean, wow! Thank you for your kind words, both of you! Ever since the Foundry was released I have been completely engrossed in it. It's utterly addicting. "Brains Before Bounty" was my first mission and I am proud of it, even if I was just stretching my legs.

The comparison to feature episode missions is particularly flattering, Nagus, as that was precisely what I was aiming for. The high quality of our feature episode series have set the bar high for all of us. I think that's especially true for those of us venturing into the Foundry in an effort to make quality missions of our own. If "Brains Before Bounty" is enjoyable, it's in large part because of the inspiration provided by missions like "Mine Enemy" or "Cutting the Cord."

That said, if you liked "Brains Before Bounty," I think it's safe to say you're going to flip over my next episode. Sudden inspiration struck me when I was playing around with customized space maps one day--so many options, so many possibilities!--and I devised a mission concept that I think will be wholly original for Star Trek Online. I've been working non-stop on this new episode ever since. It's going to take things to a whole new level. I'll be sure to drop you a note and let you know when it's live, Nagus!

The Foundry is just fantastic. 'Nuff said.

Unfortunately that's how this system is going to work. Spammed or lots of friends are going to get a high ranking no matter if it's good or not and the really good stuff is going to be mostly unknown. I'll probably make minimal usage of the foundry because of this. :(

This one will definitely go on my extremely short list to try though. ;)

From my experience, you can pretty much tell just from the mission journal text whether it will be a good mission or not. If the text is well written and interesting, its almost always a great mission. On the other hand, if its simplistic and doesnt really sound "right"(as far as the story of Trek), it usually isnt. I guess my point is that it isnt hard(for me) to find good missions, regardless of what they are rated.

Yes, I can't find it either... :(

Was this mission created on Tribble, not Holodeck?
