# 1 New Romulus Blah Blah

So I finally get to New Romulus in the Live server and I have to sit through 5 minutes of blah blah?

I don't remember it being this long on Tribble?

Kudos to Voice Talent, but can we ESC out of blah blahs please?

It's as bad as SWTOR.
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

I am going to somewhat second this. I thought D'Tan's speech was OK as far as length goes, but then the other guy went on a speech as well. It is nice to set the scene, and since it was a whole new area and kind of a big thing game lore wise I think it was appropriate. At the same time, developing an "Esc" key option to end cut scenes, as well as a option to re watch them if you accidentally hit esc would be a nice feature. Some people really like cut scenes and some people really hate them.

Blah blahs.. /lesigh

i wonder how popular a mmo would be if all they did was skip the story skip pretty much everything even travel and just spawn you in a large square room with rows of NPC's each with a quest to which after accepting it you would spawn in another square room with the required things you either need to collect or kill.

don't even put quest text in.. just say You are required to kill/collect X number of X

then after hitting max level give you a HORRAY message that flashes the screen like what happens when you win minesweeper and your character is deleted and you start all over again.

OP do you believe that would be the bestest mmo evar?

oh and for PVP just spawn everybody in the same square room all with equal gear and have them go at it until the last man is standing. simple. balanced and impossible to complain about.

There is a big difference between story and cutscenes. When it goes to a cutscene, you dont do anything except watch. A lot of people, myself included, dont like this. I play games instead of watching TV because I want to do stuff. Having an option to quickly get through cut scenes is a lot different then getting rid story text a player can read through at their own pace.

First viewing it's ok for length.

Having to go through it with all the alts...not so fun.

I appreciate the time and effort involved in the cut scenes so I do think it's something you should need to go through once. Perhaps a flag at account level when you've viewed it, so you can bypass with the alt army?

Yeah, I want to reiterate that I actually enjoyed this cut scene. I think an esc key way to get out of cut scenes would be a good feature.

That would be the greatest MMO of all time...

I read that you could hit the escape key to bypass these cutscenes. Has anyone tried it, otr did you all just assume that they were like the older cutscenes that you have no choice but to endure.
I personally want a Star Trek game that is actually Star Trek. On a qualitative level that could be a lot of different things for a lot of different people. But on a quantitative level, if the developers were to watch star trek and make the game like what they see, then at least it will be a shot in the right direction, as far as I am concerned.

Let's not overstate the issue. Cut scenes are well and good for players that enjoy them. I avoid the missions that don't allow me to skip them. I never play mmos with sound so they're just a minute or two of twiddling my thumbs. Not that bad, but fairly annoying when repeated with a few alts.
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.
