This is exactly why I hope every day that my life and my future never ever rely on anyone else's memory or "eyewitness" testimony. I am not indicting your assertions or the person you are responding to, just observing how fickle a thing is memory and how susceptible it is to change over time. The concept of one's own memory as a immutable record of past events is a quaint fallacy at best.

Anyone who is married knows memory to be a capricious adversary. You live with someone and, at least ostensibly, you witnessed exactly the same event, saw and said exactly the same things, but let me tell you, your memory and your wife's memory of the same thing can be completely and totally different

Agreed, I think they did a great job on them. A mane and some fur patterns would be nice, but I'm pleased overall with what they did.

I can see it now.

BREAKING NEWS BULLITIN

"Cats Overrunning the SOL Starbase

In the light of an invasion similar to the overbreeding of tribbles, Admiral Quinn has declared 'Open Season' on the Thunder-Cats. He is awarding free shuttlecrafts for every 100 heads broght in without the rest of the cat. When asked what to do with the rest, he said "Feed it to the tribbles."

And now, a word from our sponsor.

I noticed that in the C-Store, the screenshot for the TOS uniforms shows both the male and the female wearing the male uniform. When this item is purchased from the c-store, will it also unlock the female version? This question applies also to the MU uniforms (which don't have a picture yet in the c-store)

Additional question.. the Tribble listed in the C-Store, is this in-fact the Rivera tribble? if so, I think that should be specifically spelled out in the listing. Otherwise very few seeing it in the C-Store will realise that this is "the special uber tribble that can't be bred ingame"

Since we are now selling my pre-order/retailer exclusive items, why is the Chromodynamic Armor, Multi-spatial Personal Shield, TR-116, Red Matter Capacitor and Automated Defense Battery not included on the C-Store?

Any DEV wanna answer why they are picking and choosing at this point?

I suspect that the first three have to do with specific contracts with specific retailers listing out time periods wherein that given store is the only place a given perk will be available.

I'm not sure why that would be true of the Red Matter Capacitor, mind, since that's a Collector's Edition perk and is not store specific. I think the same is true of the Automated Defense Turret.

On my side of things, I hope the Chromodynamic Armor and the Phaser Turret (not the Automated Defense Battery but the drop turret) will go in sooner or later.

Let me add my thanks and "Good Job" to Cryptic for how they handled the Catians. Very nice job. Can't wait to see additional traits added like Manes or spots as well.

Also, in light of the Catian launch, I think there is an item that is now CRITICAL and must be added to your replicator ....

Excellent! One suggestion for Caitians, though ... the tail. Unless they're running it should not stick out straight like that but rather hang down more in line with the spinal column. I know you guys used the CO model as a basis for the tail, and it does look a lot better than anything over on CO, but it shouldn't stick straight out like that. If nothing else, they'd be forever getting their tails caught in turbolift doors.

I purchased the MU uniforms, and it does unlock the male and female costumes. I am having an issue with the mal tops, not allowing color changing options, though.

Hey Gang,

Wow, I can't wait to get home and start my Catian. They look awesome from the screenshots. If I was not out of town on business, I would be cruising around with one.

Personally I am glad they added the "pre-order" items to the C-Store. I plan to get quite a few of them. I also am very happy that I like ships and therefore got my pre-order through GameStop. Saves me 800 C-points. Now if only the TR-118 rifle would show up. After reading The Needs of the Many, I want one.

Thanks,
Duncan
