# 1 An Omega ??
11-01-2013, 09:55 AM
Ran through the Sphere of Influnence several times and thanks for fun adventure and access to new toys.

One question after defeating the elachi and the NPCs have a discussion about what to do with the gate. The Enterprise contacts Shon and mentions "an Omega" and that the computers and engines are offline (or something close to that).

So what is "an Omega" that is being referred to in the cutscene?

In case the ddevs read this and we are already at topic...
Can you pls find a solution for the problem the omega directive created?

Because the ship is apparently doing passive scans for omega particles, and a lockout during battle would be... devastating lol

It doesn't happen from passive scans, apparently:

In the Voyager episode, after the shockwave from the destabilized particles hits Voyager, nothing is triggered. When they scan for the source of the shockwave, however, the directive kicks in and locks out the ship.

In the new mission here, none of the federation ships that arrive are locked down immediately. After the battle, they scan the gate and still nothing. It's only when the Enterprise actively tries to scan what's on the other side of the gateway do they trigger the directive and the lockdown.

It should only pose an issue facing a ship powered by Omega, in which situation shooting at it indiscriminately is liable to bring about the disaster the directive is meant to prevent.

I'd not want to be on a ship where this happens and there's no captain to unlock the ship or the lockdown means I can't escape a more immediate danger.

Captain of a ship can quickly override this. But it's one directive you shouldn't ignore. EVER.

This seems like a good protocol, with TERRIBLE implementation on Starfleet's part... For reasons described above.
These are the unoriginal voyages of the starship Aether. Its continuing mission: to explore boring new worlds, seek out Dilithium and Reputation, to boldly go where everyone has gone before.
