Hello team.

I will not ask about the BETA.......I'm a patient man.


We all know, that we will be able to play only with the Federaton and the Klingon Empire.
My question is: Will we be able to at least MEET with NPCs from all the other major powers (CARDASSIANS, Ferrengi, Breen)?

# 213 haling ?
01-25-2009, 03:36 AM
hi this is my first time in a form of any kind so i dont know if this is the right one to do it in but i just wanna say that i wuld very much like some kind of voice command like the headset on the 360 or a normal mic for pc players for haling other ships like they do in star trek for example target a ship and do a command saying (open a channel) wait for the other player to activate then chat to them just like in star trek i just think that be prittiy cool

sorry if someone has already asked these

On other MMOs you're able to run/walk/fly through other objects like there not even there. Will it be like that in STO, or will we actually crash into planets, asteroids and ofc, other ships?

I know someone has already asked about travel, but it didnt give alot away. Is it going to take a few seconds to travel from Earth to Qo'nos for example. Can we set warp factors when travelling long distances or is it going to be loading screens between sectors of space?
Transwarp gates and such may exist, but are they optional to use. Could, if we wanted to, just fly out at warp for a few weeks to get to a planet?
Can we engage enemy ships whilst at warp?

Can you release any more information on Klingon ships, can you confirm whether the B'rel, K'vort, Vor'cha class ships are going to be used aswell as any new designs?

As far as im aware, there are alot of options availible for players when encountering new races. Does this include conquering them, stripping them of resources and using it for personel gain? [evil grin]. Very Klingon like :p

Thanks in Advance

It is assumed that you will NOT be able to just phase thru solid matter like ships or planets. That would take some gameplay out of the game such as last chance ramming an enemy to kill them. Friendly ships are unknown, you may be able to fly thru them do avoid "friendly fire" situations. WoW has servers for PVP damage were all damage is felt even by friends or comrades. Unknown if STO will offer this as well

Again, unknown as of yet. It would seem that entering warp to a specific place would be a load screen of sorts but they havn't said anything about it yet. Warp factors and the like have not been given attention during the Ask the Dev. segments.

Lets hope so, otherwise exploration may not apply very much at all...

Hopefully, yes. It was a main focus in the show and makes a ships speed very important during gameplay.

As far as ships go, let go of any assumptions you have about seeing your favorite ship in use here. The game takes place 30 years after known ST history so many ships will be altered/refit or simply decommissioned in this time. The Klingons are known for sticking with what works, after all, the Bird of Prey and K'ting'a have been in use for the Empire for centuries so I would think you would still see them around, maybe with upgrades to systems but basic look still intact. So far they have only released pics of new Federation ships so I have no clue what to expect from the Empire. These are all assumptions and educated guesses.

YES!!! The Federation may not have this ability because they are passive so they must befriend new civilizations and hope to gain their resources that way. But the Klingons CONQUER! So one would expect that the difference in gameplay between the two races would be that the Federation makes 1st contact with a helping hand and the Klingons do it with a phaser!

Remember, these are just resonable assumptions based off what they have released to us all so far. I would suggest you go to the main page and read all the articles posted so far to catch up. And definately read the Path to 2409. The interesting things located there will help you when assessing what will be capable of the game, in some cases.

And yes, this is a good place to ask questions. You may find a more suitible forum thread for more precise answers in the forum main page but any thread is a good place for questions.

Take care and I hope to see you in battle you smelly Klingon targ!:p

THAT WOULD ROCK!!! but I doubt it.

That would require to much for usser systems and I think they want to make this game axsessable to more people then just the ones with a killer lay out.

I hope so, I am a Cardassian lover and I want to at least battle a few Guls before bed each night.
