I normally play a Cruiser, but somehow, it seems even if I follow two Escorts into battle, I am teh one to recieve the full attention of the Borg ships. Nothing like starting out Infected Space being under the tractor beam of the Cube and both Sphere's while the TAc's are running hog wild, being completely ignored. I end up spending all my heals and buffs on myself just to stay in the fight long enough for the Tacs to finish the job.

I think Tac ships should recognize the need for them to go after probes and Nanite sphere's and for Cruisers and Sci ships to cooperate to take down the bigger structures. But that could just be me. I've just been in too many situations where I am going for strcutures and then turn around to see probes and ninite spheres getting away or being ignored by the Tac members of the team.

Fanbois - Fans of the various series who are so stuck on canon that they spend all their time pointing out the "glaring" violations of ST canon.

For example: "Why is Sisko's baseball still on the desk at DS9 30+ years after he left his post?"

Nerdcore Gamers - Hardcore MMO gamers who have never known the touch of a woman, but "do you a favor" by telling you that "your gear sux" or "YOUR* doing it wrong"

*misspelling on purpose

Ear Collectors - Goobers whose life mission it is to follow you around Spacedock, challenging you to duels, even after you've refused their request for the 20th time, all because they got a new toy they want to play with.

Elitist Min/Maxers - the ones who want to know your character's build, DOFFs, consoles, weapons, and BOFFs before they "consider" letting you in, but they won't ever actually invite you to group. They will, however, point out how your build and BOFF skills must fall into some narrow criteria and that all others are wasting points.

RRPers (Ridiculous Role Players) - You know the type, the ones who respond to everything in character, even if it's an OOC conversation.

It's the same reason he left it behind when the Dominion took the station in the show: he intends to return.

That's what I figured too. Considering he's with The Prophets, he bound to turn up eventually between now and The End of Time.

If I could take a stab at why, I would assume it's a monument to Ben Sisko who, as far as Starfleet is concerned, is 'Missing in Action'.

He never did intend to be trapped with the Prophets before running off to the Fire Caves after all. That whole situation just sorta uprooted his life in the middle of living it. Never went back for the baseball.

If I were the station's new commander I might feel it necessary to leave something behind as a memento of DS9's great Captain Sisko. You know how sentimental those officers can be.

I had a "I've got to go AFK for a while" on infected ground the other day, we were already down two and we were right before Ogden, so we had to sit and wait for him for 15 minutes, when he finally came back, we tried the room once and before we could give it another try, he had to AFK again. Then I had another group where everyone claimed they'd done it before, but only two of us knew that you had to activate all three consoles at once on the generators in Simmons' room. Then one of them decided to "test the water" we literally spent an hour and a half in that one room, because we kept having to redo the generators as their timers ran out.

Honestly if I were the new station's commander and the previous tenant went off to make friends with some all powerful beings for a while... I wouldn't touch his stuff either.
