Just a reminder to everybody, the Tholian mobs are hitting holodeck tomorrow. (Not sure about the NPC contacts, though.)

The vague details will sure make for some nice variety. I'll try to make one. :)

Keep in mind also that we have no Tholian NPC contacts (ground or space) only combat mobs. So we can't put actual Tholian models in dialogue and cannot reskin other groups or single NPCs as Tholians.

edit: Oops guess psychoticvulcan already covered that.

I've seen a few posts about NPC contacts, but I've not seen anywhere in-game where you actually speak to a Tholian (sans for the one-off that hails you when you enter the Tau Dewa Red Alert). I'm thinking this is intentional, just like you probably wouldn't talk to a Salt Vampire.

Either way, I'm sure you all will get creative ;)

Cheers,

No talking to Salt vampires?

There goes my Twilight/Star Trek cross over :(

Well, just like how Terminators are people too, so are Tholians...

They're people who don't LIKE us and often want to kill us, but they're people with goals and motives and such. IF they had a reason to, they could try to use diplomacy, in theory anyways.

drogyn1701 01-16-2013 03:27 PM

We do have canon instances of people talking to Tholians. Dark Mirror I think.

You do know that there are many Tholian ambassadors almost everywhere in the galaxy in canon? :rolleyes:

Tholians are supposedly sentient beings, not zombies. So you can talk to them and they can talk to you. Just not in STO.

Starting this challenge without Tholian npc contact isn't reasonable. And we need space mobs too. Will we get them?

Agreed we need to be able to talk to them. And yeah space mobs are in the patch, which I assume will go live tomorrow.

Again, knowing the Foundry community, I'm sure you can get creative if you'd really would like to be able to have the player speak to a Tholian. This is a Foundry Challenge, emphasis on challenge ;) Make it work with what you have. :) I can personally think of several ways to go about this.

Space mobs are live on Tribble.
