My Borg Captain would love a ship similar to the Borg enhanced Voyager with parts of the interior borgified. However, she has adopted a secretive voluntary assimilation policy. Only my Borg Engineer Boff decided to volunteer for it. Some of the other crew members have gone for minor borg enhancements, but nothing noticeable or threatening. My collective consists of only 2 borg which reduces her crew's efficiency from what it could be.
The Borg would have less problems if they adopted my captain's policy, but they are too stubborn which is why my captain was kicked out of the collective.
i fully 100 percent would love to see an assimilated ship skin --------+1(a million times) make it like the romulan assimilated mog'ai escort and you guys would have a HUGE money maker on your hands in the c-store.......as much as that would suck.................i would buy it as long as it was under 300 points
you would have every person who is like me (anything for more ship designs) eating out of the palm of your c-store
and i also would be willing to wait til AFTER the klingons get all there new ships so they cant flame this idea and have it for BOTH fed/klingon
as for getting CBS to approve i could see it going a little like this
cryptic- ok all the ships you've already approved ...can we just put some green stuff on them...
CBS- omg seriously no one will go for that
cryptic- we are gonna put it on the c-store and call it assimliated borg skins
CBS- lmfao ok but seriously i want a share of the c-store profits
atari- WOAH um no way its ALL OURS muahahaha
cryptic- how about i give you a SUPER SPECIAL REWARD and 100 CRYO grenades
CBS- throw in a lower cooldown on my slipstream drive and we got a deal--
cryptic- hmm, throw in a few seasons of how i met your mother on dvd and its a deal
CBS- you drive a hard bargain but it was cheaper than CHARLIE SHEEN so shall we get this in writing
cryptic--absolutley oh and can we get this on a rush order so we can put them in before the klingon ships I SO HATE the klingons....ive never forgiven them for killing my son...
CBS - lol kirk quotes your hilarious
cryptic---beam me up scotty!
ok its late i think i lost my mind somewhere in this post
I too only purchased the lifer sub to play as a Borg. An assimilated ship skin would be very cool indeed.
Would be awesome to have the following added in STO:
Borg tactical sphere skin
Borg armor (TNG looking Borg armor)
Borg plasma firing arm weapon
Ship interior alcoves (like in Voyager)
Ship interior modded Borg panels
Borg (player) user interface with voice
As a Lifer, I can honestly say that the #1 Reason I got it isn't "you only pay once, ever". It was the Liberated Borg character !
So, while not adding any advantage to the player, you guys are pretty good at character customization so here are my ideas...
1. Ship Costume: Assimilated Ship (any fed / klingon ship) Pretty much a skin pack that would make it pretty visible that your ship has been assimilated by the borg. (Green warp nacelles, Borgified hull, etc.)
2. Ship Interior / Bridge: Assimilated Ship (hoping you get my point...)
It'd buy those as soon as they come out on the C-Store.
Another thing (no idea if it's already there) when killing borg, would be nice to actually loot "Borg Weapons". Again, no real advantage, only the typical green borg weapon color and usual weapon stats (no matter the weapon type).
I think it'd be cool to be a Liberated Borg who's at the same time, attached to his ship and also (like most liberated borg) has a true understanding of the advantages of borg technology.
Show some support, we might, one day, have this !
We freed you from the collective.
Worthy men died prying you out of the collectives hands.
They died so you could live free.
YOU got saved.
Not some starship.
YOU got command of a ship that was originally not the one you have been yoinked from by the borg.
There is no reason why you should have a borgified vessel, especially not after switching ships like 4 times....
