A game where my ship and crew is put in some random area in the delta quadrent and has to find its way home? maybe not appealing to some but this actually sounds like fun to me, just as long as it does not take 7 years, maybe a week or a few days or some certain amount of in game play time.

I would prefer another faction with the same quality, or better, just like the Romulans.
Getting all these new player ships is great, but lately it is getting out of hand a little. I see more fed captains flying captured enemy ships than actual fed ships. at this rate it would be easier to take the fed / kdf/rom put them all together, and call it one big faction and just let everyone buy anything they want. feds can be explorers, kdf can be the warriors, roms can be the spies.

Lets see more factions with there own specific ships rather than introducing a new species and handing their ships out to the fed/kdf/rom. could even make it a 500 or 1000 zen option to switch factions to get more people into other factions.

Therefore you might want to give another star system another wormhole like bajor to the Delta. Or just work on the gamma quadrant first. MHO.

From there more constructions ships make there way through the gate and assemble a star base and ally them selves with the talaxians and nelix as the ambassador.

Then your free to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before
An easier solution would be to explain that while exploring in the Gamma Quadrant (through the Bajoran Wormhole), a joint Federation/Romulan Team discovered another Stable Wormhole that leads to the Delta Quadrant.

This would not only get us there quickly, but would also give a reason for there to be more development and use of that already existing resource in the game.

Of those listed I had to go with the Kremin, Year of Hell was my favorite two parter. I was disappointing that the Vaudwar were not included in the poll but I dragged that subject to death already. I just hope the Devs are thinking about them.

If it was going to take Voyager 100 years at maximum warp to return to Earth
I thought it was said in series it was going to take 70/75 years not 100 ? , this is from memory so I may be wrong

This sounds great, could add both voyager species and deep space nine species at the same time. could make a sort of battle between the alpha-beta/gamma/delta quadrent species. instead of faction wars it would be quadrant wars

To tell the truth, none of those options thrill me much.

The Kazon and the Krenim are probably logical choices. But I don't have any enthusiasm for either of them. Possibly because the Kazon are dirtbags and I haven't seen the episodes with the Krenim yet (still working through Netflix occasionally).

What happened to the Turei and the surviving Vaadwaur? Those underspace corridors sound like an excellent excuse for exploring the Delta Quadrant.

What about the Ocampa? Seems like it would be hard to tell a story about the Delta Quadrant in the post-Voyager era without dealing with that question.

The photonic lifeforms? ("Heroes and Demons", "Bride of Chaotica!", "Body and Soul", "Flesh and Blood") Seems like we have lots of options there, too.

The Vidiians were terrifying. At least if you were assimilated by the Borg you were still mostly intact, with the addition of some cool cybernetics. If you were captured by the Vidiians, you would end up as part of someone else's skin! Creepy!

A Vidiian mission would make a great Halloween or Friday the 13th featured episode. A ground missions through a Vidiian ship or base would be like a shop of horrors. I would love to go up against the Vidiians in STO, if only for the sheer terror of the thought of what happens to you if you lose...

Hmmm initial thoughts

The Kazon seems unremarkable ship wise

The Vidiian post phage encounter could be interesting

The Krenim also interesting, temporal forcefields

The Malon The garbage guys?

The Hierarchy Seems meh

The Devore ? afraid of telepaths


So just by the memory alpha material if your looking for bad guys the Krenim, Possible allies post-phage then the Vidiian, the rest seem to be minor players in an sto setting used to flesh out some story lines perhaps.

Vidiian would be my vote in that case forging new alliances and all that.

And then you click 'respawn' and the whole thing is ruined.

Very nice, very very nice. I can see the Voth interesting in suppressing the idea they came from the Alpha Quadrant. More correctly that little planet ruled by primitive primates who think they have something in common with them. Best just to wipe earth out of the star map and be done with it.

I do want to point out something VERY important about the Vidiians. The Phage was apparently cured for them. In the Voyager episode Think Tank, http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Thin..._%28episode%29

It was said They have been able to help hundreds of clients, including the Vidiians, for whom they cured the Phage. Granted they had been underhanded... but if the Think Tank was as smart as they appeared in the show... Chances are they COULD pull it off. And I think the Vidiians would have been willing to pay any price to cure the Phage. So if you introduce the Vidiians... Remember that they may not have the Phage.

I Voted for the Malons because the first episode they were introduced, I like the idea of their garbage scows showing up to start dumping their Toxic waste in the Alpha Quadrant. Via Wormhole Far from home, out of sight out of mind. And when pointed out they are endangering lives... Sorry not our problem. Maybe even sending automated Scows to dump the radiation. Theta Radiation bombs as weapons. So an entire arc could be to locate the wormhole, Get through it... get past the Waste disposal group (Which was said The technology that recycles Theta radiation would put them out of business.)

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Night_%28episode%29

No body likes the idea of being put out of business, by simple technology. The Klingons would be more inclined to destroy these attackers, or make a new allie to at least convince them of the error of dumping in Klingon Space, To... encourage them to dump in federation space. Romulan republic might be interested in stopping the dumping (which could be encouraged by the Tal Shiar) in their space and getting additional trading partners.

The Federation being the do gooders they are... to help them correct the problem all together.
