This would be a wise choice :p. Thanks for the recommendation Mark .

Perfection, part 1 and Perfection, part 2 fed side. Make sure yer level 41. Part 1 is kinda tough and long, but 2 is a little easier.

After you beat those, there is another series that follows it called Scars of the Pride. That series continues the story of the characters you meet, but doesn't involve Borg anymore so don't know if you will want those.

Any number of them. Of ones I've personally reviewed:

-- "The Rising Phoenix" by the late Mark Valentine, one of Cryptic's own. Courtesy of his untimely death, no ending, but a brilliant part one: dark, dramatic, provides choices in how to proceed, and brilliantly written.

-- "Collectiveness Strikes Gold" by stoutes. He's not a native English speaker so his spelling isn't the best, but it's fun to play.

-- "Contact Squared" by eldil. Starts as a sequel to TNG: "First Contact" and gets dicey fast.

Not going to be my next STO project, but I'm going to have a character slot opening up soon and was considering tinkering with the foundry.

Out of curiosity, how easy is it to make branching narrative with the foundry?

Can it be finessed, if its not supported?

With a couple small exceptions, Cryptic doesn't do branching storylines in its missions, so it isn't supported in the Foundry. However, it is possible, albeit difficult, to finesse the system into making branching stories.

If you're interested, there are video tutorials on the subject at starbaseUGC.com

I've enjoyed playing one Borg-related mission in particular some time ago, which had quite a nice story... think it was called "One of none" - I may be mistaken on the exact name, will check for it next time I am online... except the ending, I've enjoyed it, and would recommend it.

The station rescue sequence is epic! It made me think of that old Stalone movie: "Daylight". Plus my character Kell, has a cameo .
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)
