With the new missions for KDF and Romulans - Have any of the Fed missions been reworked to fit in with any of the new storylines?

Will the Romulan faction include Foundry functionality from the start?

By which I mean: will I be able to make Foundry missions for Romulan players at launch?

Does Star Trek Online have a QA (Quality Assurance) team? And if you do why don't they seem to test for things players do on a regular basis like heal their ship's shields and hull, or change their bridge officers, or take a newly released ship into an STF?

With upcoming May release containing bug fixes and new UI tweeks, will they be released earlier than the new content, or will this be another update bomb where you guys release everything at once and sit back and hope the game doesn't implode from bugs ?

Getting queues to pop over on the KDF side can be difficult sometimes due to the lack of players. Recent queues have been cross faction to help with this. With the advent of the Romulan faction, can we expect new queue events to be cross faction? Will older queues be re-tuned to be cross faction?

It's been said in a few places that an all new character creator is coming in May. Can you share any more details on that?

Several of us run multi-faction fleets and have a bit of trouble keeping up on the Starbase and Embassy projects for the two existing factions, especially for smaller fleets. With Romulans coming I fear that my own fleet cannot keep up with even more fleet holdings. Is there any help for us on the way?

STO has become very DPS oriented to the point where many of the player base jokingly call the game "Escorts Online." Are there any changes coming down the pipes to bring science ships and cruisers back into the fight?

Are any new STFs going to be added in with the Romulans joining the fight?

Is New Romulus going to be the HQ for the Romulan faction, similar to ESD or Qo'nos? I ask because up until this point the factions have not been able to visit the others respective HQ. Would Federation and KDF players be able to visit the Romulan HQ if they are based on New Romulus?

New Romulus is a beautiful planet, but doesn't have all that much to do on it right now. With the Romulans coming, are there any plans to expand the content there? Would it be only for Romulans or for players of all factions?

Tacofangs, AKA The Artist formerly known as Tumerboy, is pure awesomeness wrapped in a taco shell. How do you deal with being around such awesomeness on a daily basis?

Great question as I have a lot of ideas for Romulan missions. That's assuming they ever answer my ticket that I submitted several days ago about not being able to create a character because I have no foundry slots or something like that. Apparently if you delete your last foundry character then it breaks!

Quite a few fleets are now hitting Tier 5; can we expect to see another fleet holdings coming in the May update?

--I've always liked Mr. Arex and his Triexian/Edosian species from the Animated Series. I know that even if there aren't rights problems, there might be animation problems for a 3-armed, 3-legged species not built like an Undine, but what are the chances that we could get that species in the game in any way? Doff? Unique seated contact who doesn't have to have walking animation? Though, if possible, C-Store/Lobi Store Bridge Officers would be nice, too.

--Another species I've been interested in is the Kelvans. Though they appeared in human disguise, the description given in TOS's "By An other Name" was fascinating. Mini-Lovecraftian monstrosities -- Mini for Lovecraftian monstrosities, that is. TOS's, even TNG's, special effects couldn't create them. But you could, and they seem like a fascinating enemy that you could flesh out. Worf bragged that he faced one in battle, so they're still around. I know this couldn't come soon, but have the Kelvans even been on your long-range sensors? Because I think they should be.

Dear cryptic here is my questions,


Jem Hadar Dreadnaught and the lock on the hangar pets.
Why was this done and why did you want the customers so angry ?
check here http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...527061&page=68
68 pages of angry people for this ludicris lock on the hangar for the dreadnaguth.
Normal players cannot get the advanced jem hadat attack ship hangars.
why release a half ship and half locked to 500 mill ec that no one ever gets ?

2nd question

how much will the expansion cost and how will lifetime customers be affected by this.


klingons got nothing again ?
If only they fix Cloaking bugg *new message BOOM decloacked.
