# 1 On Massivly interview...
01-29-2013, 11:40 AM
so listening to the show..

Ok, next season.. its more then a normal season.. it may actually qualify as an expansion.

I am holding my breath.. but I think it may just be possible that we're going to see the KDF faction blossom to a lot more then we currently have. He's being very close to the chest with these cards, but I've been listening to this guy yack for the last 3 years. and he really did drop some hints that say "K.D.F."

heres the link, check it your self.

Given what the 'Reputation System' is - I don't get how they can be considering a Thlian one; as (if you follow the new Romulus story via the Romulan Rep cutscenes); the Tholians are such Xenophobes; I don't see why/how any non-crystiline lifeforms would trust them; or would believe what they say. Even as far as TOS goes, they weren't interested in contact; and if you go by comments made during the TNG TV series run, the Federation has/had gone to war with the Tholians a couple of times since the TOS era.

I'm not against new Reputation system additions per se; I'd just like them to have some consistency and make some sense in the overall STO storyline that (I assume) Cryptic is talking about getting back to and featuring a bit more in game - and not just get a Rep system added because some portion of the Dev team may think it's 'cool'.

Just my two cents.

As a primary Federation player, I wish the KDF players all the best and I hope you start receiving the attention and products that you've been missing all along.

I really hope we do too. It would be nice to be able to enjoy the faction I prefer without losing out on a lot of story and general content.


Fingers crossed. This interview has given me a sliver of hope for the next season/expansion.

I see your point, but I suspect that the possible 'Tholian Reputation' that they are considering would be anything like the Romulan one form S7.
And seen how the Tholians wreak havoc in STO, I think it would be closer to the 'Omega Rep' where we would actuall fight them or prevent some devious plan of theirs through mission.

Never get your hopes up, you'll just turn into one of those disgruntled forum posters.

Who says a reputation has to be a positive one. Just look at Kirk's with the Klingons!

one can hope.

if they fill out the kdf in a semi decent way, then that also raises hopes that the romulans wont just be tacked on either.

im not going to get my hopes up and be disappointed but i do think the KDF will see some good love this year.
