# 1 More ugly rumors about ships
06-22-2012, 04:17 PM
SO is it true that the Devs/Cryptic are seriously considering giving widespread cloaking and a Bop-like escort to the feds?

Are you seriuosly gonna pimp out the last uniqueness for the KDF for a quick buck?

Honestly, cloaking for the feds so they can do what Gene thought heroes should not do?
What possible need does the federation, a force for peace and exploration before war, need for a vessel designed to raid colonies, supply lines, plus overall a machine designed for conquest have for a BoP-like escort?

Does the IP mean anything anymore or has STO just become a "feddy wants it and we will sell it to them" cop-out?

Really? Let people pay for what they want. besides in a Star Trek Universe, what's wrong with practicality when your basically a universe at war or cold-hot war.

Hey we live in a JJ Abrams Star Trek universe where practicality and the need to be tactically sound . So ef the old cannon.

no we don't, 2409 and the universe STO is in are appart from the timeline created by Nero.
Vulcan is still there if you remember.
the event leading to the destruction of romulus are in STO's timeline (romulus destroyed)...but the time travel effect didn't take place in this reality.

You sound like the British Navy during World War I.

Wait doesn't the IP still mean a way to get money for the rights holder :wink:

Though I doubt every Fed ship would get cloaking ability as they would probably have to make a cloaked texture for all of them then.

Blurgh. Facepalm. And other negative reactions.

Seriously, if they give cloaking and universal console escorts to the Feds, then stick a fork in it.
