BTW, thanks god I work that hard with mine romi to stop the evil tal shiar to develop thelaron weapons..
Federation allied using illegal mass destructions weapons = Ok
Yeah, this console garbage makes a mockery of that whole plot line.

It has gotten ridiculous over the past three years. In its current state, I would have to agree that Star Trek Online is far from an immersive "Trek" experience. Even many of the newer missions require you to share a persistent "zone" with the non-Trek "generic space game" players. A name change would be more honest, but, obviously, would cost them the marketing hook of the "Star Trek" tag.
As for the ships, I'm still trying to figure out why the art team mess with the clean lines of canon designs and make them look like something a kindergartener might draw with a crayon. Of course, it's the consoles they're really selling anymore, imho.
This ship is OP regardless of how you try to justify it.
I find this statement funny when you consider that don'tdrunkI'mshoot, an experienced PvPer who's usually first to criticize anything OP, considers this ship to not be too OP or UP
And I'm not just making that up: his post about it is on page 9.
Was named Trek17, but still an author.
Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.
Thalaron weapons. The energy type that the, "Geneva Convention in Space" didn't like? The same terrible weapon type your own story line had us oppose the Tal Shiar and Obisek for?
Canon is one thing but your inability to deliver a vision consistent with your own continuity is really disappointing.
Maybe you chose to arrest Obisek, but I did not. So who is to say me, or others got closer to obisek then the republic and got the thaleron?
Also, there are romulan players who like to pretend they are the romulan star empire by wearing the talshiar uniform, and have I.R.W. on their ships. So if those players use thaleron, it would be suitable.
so nothing of canon is really affected, unless a player says hes part of the republic and uses the thaleron, but that would be the fault of the player, not the game.
...Also, there are romulan players who like to pretend they are the romulan star empire by wearing the talshiar uniform, and have I.R.W. on their ships. So if those players use thaleron, it would be suitable.
If the thalaron is availible because it's suitable for players that want to pretend to be in the RSE, maybe then it's suitable for them not to have access to Mol'Rihan, not be able to travel to Sirius, Tau Dewa & Omega Leonis, not to be able to join fleets, PvE, etc.....you get the point.
Because true Starfleet Captains command Exploration Cruisers!
Thank you Cryptic for finally giving me MY SHIP!!!
Why the T.T or the Whining about it being op? the radiation effect can be easily countered its like plasma just higher damage. Carry a Hazard Emitter!. The rest of the damage is easy use your defensive skills and don't sit still. if its cloaked use a plasma vent or something that has anti cloak or hold in it description. learn to read and quit Q.Q please its not that hard. You can also block a lot of damage but using the right hull plating or Armor and not going and being console heavy in the universal.
Wiki and asking around can get you answers. Its up to you to cry and make lemonade after eating a lemon or squeeze it and sell it. Your Pick!
:This is intended as a informative response not a insult even though i know most will take it either way:
Well I'm not sure about the numbers but I'm pretty sure no heavy armor/weapon Rom ship kan turn better or faster then Feds streamline designed ship. Just logically thinking about it.
That & as many times as The Federation has beat baq romulan troops. Even in the movie, the reason why it got blown up was bkuz it was to slow. Kouldnt even out maneuver a ramming attack
Um. You must've missed the point where it was going from dead stop, to the side (and forward) while the enterprise was going forward.
All the rest of the scenes it was dancing around the Enterprise E with ease.

These design travesties, even with their op (imho) consoles, won't convince me to shop for zen, even if I weren't already boycotting premium purchases.
How the heck is the STO scimitar such a horrible model compared to the scimitar from nemesis? They are exactly the same. If not exactly, very damn close. Seriously explain how the ingame model is so different.
Hell, if it wasn't like the movie in terms of abilities or design, people would be ******** more. And the Scimitar was not a carrier. Infact, one hanger fits since we saw the one hanger in the movie (true, it was huge, but still only one). I can't believe people are refusing to even consider buying it ONLY because of one hanger bay.
edit: I'm laughing right now. Everybody is ******** because of the thalaron weapon, yet they don't complain about the Tal shiar ships?
So the republic would flip out and destroy any scimitar using captains, but accept ships covered inside and out with borg tech (made by the Tal shiar no less) into orbit and into orbital stations easily?
