# 1 Voyager Bundle Pack
07-19-2012, 03:41 PM
Hi STO community,

I posted a thread about a Voyager bundle a while back, but it died, and after rethinking the idea, I thought I'd post my ideas here.

Essentially, what we need in a Voyager Bundle pack is the following:

Voyager Interior - Bridge, Engineering, Transporter Room, Hallway 1, Hallway 2

SC-4 Shuttle - with [Ablative Hull Armour - S] console and [Transphasic Torpedo Launcher - S]

SC-4 Non-Combat Shuttle Pet

Compression Phaser Rifle that scales as you level

[Uncommon Ocampa Nurse Duty Officer]
[Rare Talaxian Chef Duty Officer]
[Very Rare Liberated Borg Astrometrics Scientist]


Talaxian Bridge Officers and Playable Species to be released at the same time for same price as Ferasan for Federation accounts.
Kazon Bridge Officers and Playable Species to be released at the same time for same price as Ferasan for KDF accounts.


I look forward to the community's feedback on this idea.

I like your duty officer ideas and I think that would be the easiest to do. Not to sure about the Talaxian and Kazon bridge officers though. Right now those two races are exclusive to the Delta Quadrant and so far, STO hasn't really delved into that region of space. I just don't think the developers will create new species that don't have NPC applications. If they do eventually have some episodes with those races, then yeah, they ought to make them playable and bridge officers. I like the interior ideas too, especially since the existing interiors don't do a good job of imitating the interior of the Intrepid Class.

I'd be more than keen to see a Voyager bundle!

Let's have a look at each idea, shall we?

  • Deck 2 - Officer's Mess with Counselor, Chef and Bartender DOff contacts

  • Deck 3 - Captain's Quarters

  • Deck 4 - Transporter Room and Brig with Security Officer DOff contact

  • Deck 5 - Science Lab with Science Officer DOff contact, Sickbay + Morgue with Medical Officer DOff contact

  • Deck 6 - Holodeck with possibility to play a Captain Proton holonovel.

  • Deck 8 - Astrometrics

  • Deck 10 - Shuttlebays 1 and 2, with NPC contact to allow selection of small craft.

  • Deck 11 - Main Engineering with Engineering Officer DOff contact (I'd personally move the Ops Officer DOff contact to the bridge, possibly having the later automatically use the costume of whoever's my Chief of Ops)

Room locations are based on Strategic Design's deck-by-deck schematics from Cygnus-X1.net, and I've opted for having them on the actual decks for authenticity. I've also skipped 7, 9 and 12-15 as they aren't depicted in the TV series.

I'm very fond of the Type-9 shuttlecraft as well - perhaps there could be a choice of either the standard skin and the Adm Janeway SC-4 skin?

Also, a proper interior.

Not a fan of that design, but not my call.

Yep - no questions asked.

But only when an FE for the Delta Quadrant has been opened up.


Now, for some of my own suggestions:

  • Perhaps an unlockable Captain's Yacht variant - the never-seen Voyager Aeroshuttle? - Basically, 400-Day Veterans who have the Captain's Yacht AND have bought the Voyager bundle would get an alternative skin for their flyable Yacht.

  • Allow the user to toggle the LCARS color scheme - the canon multicolored ones or the 2400 blue theme.

  • Each room should be modular, so that in the future if Cryptic uses Neverwinter's Foundry system to allow players to customise ship interiors room by room, said players would be able to expand on the ship interiors themselves.

Game features I'd like to see improved / expanded: Better Ship Interiors // BOff Costume Slots

Can it have a Janeway Hologram that I can kill over and over and over, various and sundry ways, all horribly painful? I'd buy that.

I agree with every part of the OP suggestion. In the words of Capt. Picard;

Make it so!

Interior - Maybe not put all the rooms on as many decks, condense it down, similar to the current format. Also like the ideas for where to put doff contacts. Maybe not worry so much about BO places on the bridge as a whole new game mechanic would need to be created.

Species - To be fair, Sela has allies from the Delta Quadrant (the Hirogen) and the KDF and Starfleet must have considered it by now (especially now that we have transwarp and quantum slipstream drive. We could at least get the Neelix and the talaxian settlement where he left.

Also, loving the idea of a Delta Quadrant FE series (possibly based around the second Caretaker array? or the Borg's recent strength is due to a new unicomplex? and we'll be going to the Delta Quadrant if and when 'Into the Hive' STF is released anyway). That would be a great time to release the pack (like the Belfast/Defiant pack when the Dominion FE series was playing).
Lastly, no crusty8mac, you may not have a killable Janeway hologram. (If you read the book 'Before Dishonour' she got assimilated, I'm sure that will satisfy your needs).

Loving the feedback guys, keep it coming and any other suggestions, if the Devs see this we might kickstart them into action (there is a bundle in the pipes according to one of the Engineering reports recently).

It should also come with a 'Warship Voyager' ship and uniform costumes, just for the lulz. Also, because evil Janeway = awesome. Love the black gloves, too.

Here's my suggestion for a Voyager Bundle. I'm assuming this bundle will cost ~$20 so I'll try to mirror the DS9 bundle, I agree mostly with what the OP suggests:

Proper Voyager interior:
Bridge
Engineering
Briefing Room
Mess Hall
Ready Room
Sick Bay
Transporter Room

The hallways and interior would be properly scaled. And the crew should be wearing the standard Voyager uniform.

Next I think they should include the Admirals Uniform and the Dress Uniform.

Next should be two weapons:
[Very Rare Hirogen Rifle]
[Very Rare Compression Phaser Rifle]
Both scale with level.

Next is the shuttle. You may think the elusive Aeroshuttle is my choice, but I agree with OP, I'm recommending Admiral Janeways Shuttle (with proper interior of course). It should also come with [Console-Universal-Ablative Generator-S]. I don't think a non-combat pet is necessary.

Now finally, the Duty Officers, I only have one change from the OP.
[Uncommon Ocampa Nurse Duty Officer]
[Rare Talaxian Diplomat Duty Officer] (Neelix was the Fed Ambassador to the Delta Quad. )
[Very Rare Liberated Borg Astrometrics Scientist]


I might add that a Warship Voyager Ship would be a stand-alone purchase. (Which I would buy) Oh and Evil Voyager uniforms can be made properly with DS9 uniforms, no need for a purchase.

KDF players have said many times they don't want the Kazon. To the point we'd rather get nothing.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.
