Can you give us a release date for series 8, and a rough idea of what will be in it?

Can we please have the Typhoon Class?

When will the Tholians be added to the foundry?

Edit: In the foundry I found a outfit called "Enterprise Maco" ... it has no costume model for whatever reason but still, is the enterprise maco outfit in development? or any other outfits (fed/kdf or both) for that matter?

When will STO be released for Mac OS X?

With just under 1 month until the 3rd anniversary of STO, could you give us any details about the event that you all have planned and will we be seeing the Ambassador and/or K'Vort Classes as playable starships?

...and could you please leak any kind of info on TNG and/or Voyager bundles?

2 Questions:

1: Can we expect to see more varied or longer reputation systems? The whole "Select diffrent skills via choice and consequence" system appeals to me, and I'd like to see something similar, like... In 5 mins.
In that regards, is there a chance we could not have such a somewhat limited selection of missions to earn marks for said system?

2: Theres a lot of bugs floating around in the game... Listing them all would take too long, but I am sure you are aware of them to varying degrees?
Is there a plan to try to kill as many as possible like you did in one of the previous seasons? I mean assigning the dev team to focused seek out and fix long-standing issues while trying to fix them in such a manner that they are "permanent"?

While the reception of the reputation systems has been somewhat mixed on the boards I've thouroughly enjoyed it, even if there are numerous ways I could see to make the two tracks better.

That said, have you considered adjusting the rank system so that when a player hits level cap they become captain instead of Vice Admiral and moving all the Admiral/General ranks to a reputation system that is worked through at the player's leisure and locking the level cap at 50?

1.Exploration revamp has been on the "wish list" since around season 1. Any idea when that will get onto the actual drawing board and any hints as to what it may (or you would like it to) look like?

2. Main story content? I feel like the main story hasn't been furthered in a really long time (I want to say Season 2, but I can't even remember). As much as I appreciate all the work that's been done revamping systems and improving the game, I would really like to continue the story. When can we expect something in this regard?

yes i got a good question- when is the issue of graphics incompatibility going to be addressed?

I've spent good $ on the game, and in the recent updates, it seems- even tho it says it still is- that on-board intel graphics for wondows 7 is no longer compatable with STO. it causes crashes/freezes EVERY time you enter a space arena of ANY kind. posted multiple tickets, noone cares enough to email me. Answer THAT one. :mad::confused::(
