I too came here to say how much I liked the new tutorial. It is very well done.

He is a regular hologram, not like the Doctor who was left on for a very long time and became sentient. He is supposed to sound that way.

am I the only one who sees a little similitude between the new tutorial and the 1st JJ-Star Trek-movie ?
Starfleet Academy-cadets with no experience thrown right into action and player taking control of command (like Kirk) ... or is it just me?
Okay, no blaming, but it was more like a combination with Starship Troopers, even uses the same name (Flores) for your best friend.

Honestly, after thinking about it even further - why to even limit such awesome mission-lines for a tutorial? Why not make a series out of it, put it before the Klingon mission line. That way, we'd get to explore our character's Academy lives (and it'd even be easy to make it replayable for existing characters too..). The work on this is way too impressive to be just a bunch of tutorial missions..

The tutorial isn't all that long, and if you're going to play it on an old toon anyways, just create a new toon, all default, random the toon's name and ship name, then delete the toon when you're done.

I can only agree, the new tutorial is A.W.E.S.O.M.E., i wish the rest of the game where more like it.

The new tutorial is great! It is really what the Federation gameplay should look like.

I know we can claim Eliza for level 50 characters; does anyone know if the same is possible for K'mek? (hopefully a purple level as well! )


In short, they have not bothered to make the character available for KDF and there is no ETA (most likely never will ...)

I made an alt specifically for tryin it out myself and loved it... I also loved that Elisa was just as obnoxious as Tovan is... now just imagine that she stayed that obnoxious through out your entire lv1-40 career and was not dismissable... perhaps then youll understand why there are a half dozen or more Tovan hate threads.

The new tutorial is indeed a masterpiece. The first episode in which I actually read every word and even spoke the lines loudly for my own character.

However, why doesn't the new Origin Bridge have the new corridors as seen in the tutorial? Wasn't it supposed to be like that?

I want to add my voice to the choir, the new Fed tutorial is truly amazing! I had a huge grin on my face all the way through it. I knew what would happen to Taggart after you met the Klingons but it was still a blow to have to do it. I loved that you got the chance to pull up your captain on procedural matters and the line "I'm a Starfleet Officer, It's in the job description". So please raise a glass to yourselves in my name, and, in conclusion, Thank you!
