# 1 Arms race
08-11-2011, 05:30 AM
Hey guys,
Seems like that the KDF arenít in the arms race yet. Are the kdf ever going to get any uber consoles that compare to the ones feds have been getting on their c-store ships? What gives?

The KDF don't need the so called uber-consoles... They are about brute force...

Example: Even their most elaborate game, is banging heads together.... and thats not even battle.

I don't know for sure, but I feel I've read somewhere that in the next batch of ships being released (many of which are planned to have console special abilities), the KDF actually has a larger proportion. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
So the KDF may actually win this next phase of the 'arms race'

Also, all consoles will be available to both factions eventually (Duty officer system, anyone?)

I would very much like to see a link for the post where you read this...it would make me happy.
I've seen a post about some new skins for existing ships, but nothing about new ships, nor KDF getting any special consoles, nor that all consoles will be available for both sides.
Please show me where you read a Dev stating that.
Player-made rumor threads are just not beliveable.

Where did you see that all the consoles will be available to both factions? I highly doubt that. If they did do this it's a lazy fix, why not create different ones for kdf? Maybe that makes too much sense.

Well, well...how interesting...
Now, to see if those quotes will be added the "The History of the Klingon Empire according to Cryptic" or if they will become reality anytime soon.
It would sure be nice...

CaptLogan talked actually about ship skins the KDF should get sometime in the future. They never said when we will get them in the near future of IF they will be free at all. From previous experience I expect them that the ships will be delayed by the powers that rule again and in favour for more Federation only stuff. If we get them earlier I expect them that we will have to pay in C-Store for them an exorbitant fee.

Thanks Dan! it's refreshing to know that they are making some. So used to not having any shiny new toys for my ship. Hopefully these new consoles don't de-cloak my b'rel

Yes, most consoles on both sides will eventually be acquireable by the opposite faction. The exact mechanics of this are still being worked out. Similarly, we are working on a mechanic to make it possible to acquire these consoles in game.

The current plan includes about fifteen or so KDF consoles and ships in this batch, although the timing of when these come out may be staggered, and everything about this is subject to change based on a lot of factors. This is, in fact, somewhat more than the number of Federation consoles and ships currently planned for this set.

The KDF consoles are in the process of being built and artified (what, that's not a word?) They are still undergoing a lot of iteration, and we may very well pull some, add some, modify some, shift some around depending on a lot of different factors.

Some of the ones currently in the pipeline for the KDF include:
  • Aceton Assimilator
  • Vandal Siphon Probe
  • Barrier Field
  • Graviton Flux Wave
  • Isometric Charge
  • Vent Theta Radiation
  • Raiding Party Boarding Shuttles

All of this is subject to change, but all of the above are at some level of completion and testing internally. The above is definitely not the complete list, but we're still working on names for some of them (such as a sort of supertorpedo).
