I was always confused by that big fight.

People argue that in Trek fighters wouldn't work as they wouldn't pack enough punch to get through a ships shields to do any damage, yet in that entire fight I don't think I saw shields flash even once. and the opening shots by the feds was to sic the peregrine "fighters" (yes they are more like heavy shuttles due to size) on the cardie ships, and they did some decent damage to their targets

In case anyone missed it, the episodes to watch were in the Dev diary.

As someone who just started playing STO last week, I must say that I'm glad the game is continuing the canon of the series as a whole. I had imagined that outside of the events already happening in the series, the game would do its own thing. That being, in the case of this FE, we'd never have heard from the 2800 ever again as the show would have been the last time we saw them ever and would never use any plot element left behind from any of the shows.

I'm happy to see that, officially or not, they're continuing using plot elements from the shows. Makes me smile as a mild Trekkie. :)

The FX on the shields would have killed the budget on the show, especially for all those ships involved.

So, as per usual, they took a shortcut.

My favorite series and by far one of the best battle scenes. I am excited for this type of action.

Awesome, your awesome for posting those links. :D :D

I have a question though, does the new FE correspond to the order of missions in the mission log. Since the changes you have to do the missions in order. I have a VA that haven't done any of the Captain level Cardassian/Dominion True Way missions.

I hope this does not effect my ability to play the new FE. What level must I be to do them? and do I have to do all other missions in chronological order, in order for me to play the new FE themselves?

Watched and all ready! Very excited

I'm reminded how awesome DS9 was after those videos, makes me want to watch the entire series again!
