Khitomer is possible.

I wouldn't rule out Nimbus 3 either.
While the movie it was featured in was lackluster it could be an interesting game map with all 3 major powers focussing "diplomatic" ambitions there.

NO!

Erdion Nebula
Eridan Nebula

that one was bad enough...


Azlesa Nebula Normal
Azlesa Nebula Elite
Azure Nebula

give it a NEW name please, this will only lead to even more confusion in the Red Alert and DOFFJOBS channels


!!! Red Alert up in AZN !!!
which one is that? hmm?


half your Playerbase can't remember the weird names as it is,
at least make them clearly identifiable.
( in this one case i really don't care what NASA calls that region ;P )




And if there is a new Sector Block, does that mean new DOFF Missions for it?
Or will it just be the default set of random assignments that can pop up everywhere?

Only three devs on the panel, what a massive disappointment. No big surprise in what they said either. Seems like a big opportunity was missed, especially as the end of the year might be very very interesting.

As always the Massively article was a let down, that's why I never bother with their site. It read more like "Dan Stahl said everything!" Apart from the name checks at the beginning and being able to recognize from the photos Thomas and Jesse, mainly from my years of watching STOked, you would never know they were there.

"The Azure Nebula featured heavily in the Star Trek: Destiny trilogy. It was said to be created in 2168, and it contained several subspace passages with exit points all over the Milky Way Galaxy and other galaxies."

This would seem to easily coincide with the release of the Vesta class... Also, the 'exit points all over the Milky Way' angle seems like it could tie in to a Delta Quadrant storyline.

I liked it, it is a BIG step for STO. Getting their name out and becoming something more I see. More places to explore will be a MAJOR plus.

Delta and Gamma Quads (hopefully MASSIVE) will make this game *drool* awesome.

Embassy as in... Allies? Enemies? Debates? I would love it!

TrekRadio should hopefully have it up in the next few days.

Cheers,

I cant wait for Season 7

I couldn't find the Venheim Nebula on the Star Trek Maps...

Though I do see the Azure Neb on the border of the three original Trek powers...

Looks like I was right with my guess yesterday as to which area would be opened next...

I can't find Kithomer or Nimbus on the Trek Maps either...

Never mind... They aren't on the map...

Nice to see STO engage in some publicity like this. Looking forward to catching a video of things. ^^

You're right. I don't have any excuses except for the fact that I wrote this article at 2:00 am to make my deadline. I was a bit tired - not the least of which, since I was on stage talking with these fine developers I couldn't take notes as to what it is that they said.

Next time I'll not report anything and leave everyone hanging who couldn't go. /snipe

Your saying you'll refuse to do your job as a reporter for massively? I guess they should be made aware of your intentions so they dont send you next time. /snipe
