So are your plans for the weekly episodes to pretty much never use any of the main factions as enemies again or what?
Not necessarily true. We do want to introduce conflict between our main factions in future episodes. You are correct in that it is tricky because we have to create missions from 2 different perspectives, but there is nothing stopping us from doing this from a technical standpoint.

I'm pushing for the next two series to exclusively take place in locations around Klingon space so that we can start to introduce these sorts of elements.

I tend to agree with this and why I keep bringing up some sort of territory game. We really need to go back and tell the story of why the KDF and FED are at war and build some content around that whole neutral zone conflict. I'm not sure how fast we'll be able to make this (we've been talking about it for a while) but I'm hopeful that once UGC is available - the constant content pressure will be off my team enough that we can take a breather and work on something like this.
