Story Line (SPOILERS)

So I today finished the storyline, much to my shock. You have this HUGE buildup to the Iconians, after battling Species 8472 (I don't recognize the name "Undine" as it was never in the series, therefore they are Species 8472) and the Borg, then the mysterious ship appears and lays waste to the cube! It's all so exciting, I couldn't wait after shutting down that gate to see what's next!!!

I beamed to my ship and waited for Starfleet to give me the next part.

And I waited

and i waited

and i waited

Then I hailed them

And found out that's the end. And has been for quite some time.


WHY would you build this huge story up, that was really good, then just halt, and give us dinosaurs with laser beams instead? WTF? Seriously, W T F? Is this how you treat your main story? Just drop it like a ton of bricks after a buildup?

It's been like that since STO started.
We have the Iconians, but they barely act against us. The S8 will have the Voth that are related to Iconians in some way. Just like the Tholian before.
Yet, we still don't know why the Tholians are messing with Nukara or New Romulus. We don't know if they are with or against the Iconians.
The Undine threat was never closed, yet we don't talk about them anymore.

STO open a lot of plot line, never close them, and open new ones.

In a week, we will (probably) have the answer for Sela disapearance. Which was first seen about 3 years ago. At this current rate, we will see the end of the Iconians threat in a decade. Or two.

I thought this thread was about something, but it turns out it's just another dinosaur protest thread. Pity.

Meh. Been here, done this. NEXT.

It's been like that for quite a while now. If you looked at the mission lists, you would have known that.

As others have mentioned, the storyline has expanded laterally since the Undine story arc, as the Cloaked Intentions storyline was releasted after that arc (even though it takes place before, chronologically).

It's seems fairly evident that an Iconian gateway is going to be the method of travel to the Dyson Sphere (just look at the promo picture in the launcher).

Lastly, and somewhat unfortunately, it's in the best interests of an MMO to make very few changes to the status quo. The wars between any of the factions won't be resolved to anyone's satisfaction, because the gameplay is centred on the conflict between those factions.

I'm only semi-protesting them, I cant do anything about it so i really don't care. I'll just kill them like everything else :)
