It's Official... Season 7 is Going to be AWESOME.
 
When Season 7 first started hitting Tribble, I was pessimistic. My favorite tanking set (Retro Borg) was getting an unwarranted nerf (and I am STILL unhappy about that >.>), the Reputation system seemed okay, if slow (no one was queuing for anything, so I had no marks for ANYTHING), and the "Season of content" was looking like grind central.

Then Tau Dewa opened up, and now I couldn't be happier. The patrols were fun, the Tholian ships (on your own) are a challenge, and I'll never hurt for Romulan Marks again. There is a TON to do on New Romulus, I could spend 2 hours in the Staging Area alone. I jumped off the pretty bridge and found MORE content... OH WOW. I came within an inch of getting a Nanov ALL THE WAY up the river, because I wasn't sprinting (I didn't know if the Nanov could keep up - it can). There is a BOAT load of new content in that sector block, and I am LOVING it. If there's anything else, it's icing on the cake.

Just one quip... On the Jouret System map, can we at least get to see Jouret IV in the map? Maybe with the crater visible on the planet? I wrote my Fed Liberated Borg Engineer's story as being from there, and it'd be a nerd-gasm-worthy touch.

Oh, and I'd love to visit Khitomer.

hey taco, pretty environments on the new romulus. Once you enter a systems space map, those look nice too.

The only thing I'm thinking is a bit odd (and not in your area of responsibility) is the whole observe the wildlife thing. Every animal I observe makes me kill it as soon as I am done observing it. Doesnt seem like something space-hippie starfleet would do. Observe the wildlife, yes. Shoot it immediately thereafter? Not so much.

It reminds me of a gripe about SWToR when it came out. Some of the repetitive quests involved jedi's running around crushing the eggs of some animal. Didnt seem terribly jedi-like behavior.

Be liking it more if Retro Set wasn't getting nerfed, but that's not your department. To your credit, New Romulus is gorgeous.

Beaming to New Romulus as I type this. I'm not sure I like the space look of it. I realize it's a work in progress, but is it's atmosphere getting stripped away? Doesn't seem like a nice place to live. :P

All of the animals you observe you CAN kill. . . but only a few of them will agro on you. It's your choice (most of the time).

Not stripped away, just intense Auroras. You can see them from the ground too.

Elite Omega Marks??
 
I for one have enjoyed the new content so far. Looks and feels like its going to be exciting and long lasting. One question though. The Elite Omega Marks aren't listed on the inventory window like it did before the patch tonight and isn't showing how many you have now. Was wondering if that is a glitch or if its been moved? Thanks.

Yeah, I was wondering if they were gonna mention or show the remains of the New Providence colony on Jouret.

So, Super-Artist-Taco, Jouret planet on Jouret map please?

I agree it all looks awesome so far, but you are essentially judging a book by its cover. That is, you have not even played it 1 whole day and you are declaring the entire season awesome. Tell us how you feel after a month and then it will actually mean something.
