The Mission "Memory Lane' Says it rewards a Field Generator Console (+ Shield HP). It actually rewards a Shield Emitter Amplifier Console (+ Shield Regen).

I gotta say, I chose the Federation, and I liked how the missions were arranged. It was much better than I expected; it was still a cohesively Romulan story.

I thought this was a great mission set overall. Here are a few things I noticed:

Smash and Grab:
-Transporting between the frieghters 1 and 2 led to the bridge officers staying behind on the first one, while I was transported.
-Another bug just noticed, a federation phaser was placed into one of the bridge officer's hands during the cutscene following the actions after transport.

Tradecraft:
This was the only thing I noticed was the text for changing Weapons to Ship Parts had an extra weapon after so it would read Weapons weapon or Ship Parts weapon. Here is the screenshot I took at the time: http://cloud-2.steampowered.com/ugc/...7C03FD7179613/

I think when you first choose your ally there is a big in your face moment about that choice for a bit, it a tad overwhelming, and it feels like you are going to become a "fed" for a while until you get over to Eta Eridani.

You get introduced to a Fed Captain that you have a mission with, are given a bunch of Mark IV Rares in Phaser flavor, you are given a Fed BOFF, and when you go to get your ship you open the panel and all you see are Fed ships. It really creates a feel for a while that you are more a Fed than a Romulan.

I'd suggest that you need to visit your allies home base to be able to buy their ships/gear, that you not offer directly a allied BOFF at all, if we want them we can go get them, and that the tech offered be more generic, like shields, armor, consoles.

Also, if the freighter rescue mission could be made to look a bit less like the Shmar mission, that might be awesome. Different backdrop and/or music probably would do a world of difference.

Awesome work guys.

This I have to agree with. I was Surprise when I saw those Fed ground phaser, ship beam phaser and the canon phaser. It doesn't make you feel like you are Romulan at all. I thought the whole purpose of the alliance is Fed were rather interesting in Romulan tech not the other way round.

And what's with the Fed BOFF as a reward. Please no fed BOFF as rewards, since am reporting back to republic fleet not starfleet.

I have to agree with this, rather than feeling like an ally it felt like I just joined Starfleet. I would suggest keeping it more Romulan centric here while clearly indicating that you can acquire additional items at Earth Spacedock, perhaps even making a mini mission to go there to acquire Starfleet related gear/ships while keeping the Romulan Flotilla strictly Romulan-centric.

Chose the Klingons, but very much the same - it remains uniquely Romulan, with the background (that remains FULLY in the background) that would go along naturally with that choice.

I am increasingly impressed by this - cannot wait for launch...save for the fact I'll have to do all this over again, ha!

I've seen that white blob on the wings too. for some reason or another there's a delay in loading the textures there.
