Liked the new screen shots up, the one of the badlands looks very familiar. Think i saw a similar picture that Mr Zinc put up on his twitter pic account a few months back, with a Dev next to his screen with just a nebula type background, no Cardassian ship or planet was in there, and i thought it did kinda look like the badlands then, so here we see it up in full glory.

Wounder what sort of Alien the Cardassians were fireing at in one of the pictures?

Really liked the new pictures, nice to see a bit of ground combat too.

Kepp them coming.

P.S are these PC screen shots or Console? and with the screen shots so far, will there be a similar look for the console version do you think?

The away team fighting 8472 looks like Odo/Data clones, really weird.

StarFleet seem to be the newest group out there and if you take in all of Terren history back to the stone age they’re an ancient race to.

In a gamersinfo article they said “In addition to pitting these two ancient enemies against each other, you’ll end up fighting against an unnamed ancient evil that threatens the entire Alpha quadrant” which may have been just one writers view but it shows “ancient” gets thrown around pretty easy.

Does ancient mean they were causing problems in space, specifically in the Alpha quadrant a long time ago? And if so is a long time ago before StarFleet was in space or just back to ENT era?

Believe non-indigenous beings had no rights and have a claim on Earth. It would be a “return” to the Alpha. They’re technologically advanced enough to challenge even the Borg. They could definitely be a good candidate.

The Q are ancient but I don’t think it would be Q just because they could just snap their fingers and the Federation and the Klingons would instantly blink out of existence. There's really no "fighting" them.

That being said, there's nothing to say that the Federation and Klingons will never cooperate to face a greater threat. We expect the relationship between them to shift and change as the story advances.
I am pleased to have read the above.

However, I'm disheartened to see Species 8472 wearing clothing and a weapon made of anything but their flesh, since all of their technology is biological, even their ships are completely biological. It is true, they made a station out of what looked like metal in order to simulate Starfleet Academy, but even in that case, the real trick was a biological one that allowed them to look completely human.

They're already completely phaser resistant, it's only lacing the phaser beams with Borg nanoprobes that allowed phasers to work, and they are strong enough to rip through the hull of a starship using their bare hands! You're simply not thinking radically enough when it comes to their technology. If they're going to adopt body armor (which doesn't fit their characteristics, they should be modifying their immune system) and beam weapons, you need to think Zerg and Tyranids. If Species 8472 should grow a new organ on their head, or hands that can emit the same beams their ships emit, they should develop focused psychic attacks, their claws should become thicker, longer, and harder, they should shoot shield piercing spines that infect people the same way their claws can infect, and for body armor their skin should thicken and harden. Not only that, they should be able to make these changes on the fly, like going into combat mode.
You can even use another potential officer to train one of your current ones in a new skill.
Interesting.

Become Starfleet Commander?
That would be the Commander inChief, as a commander is a lower rank than captain. The commander in chief of Starfleet is the President of the Federation, as of TNG. Before that, it was the highest ranking Starfleet admiral.

That Cardassian ship is very well done. I hope to see other screenshots like that soon.

Looks pretty good so far im hoping its gonna be a bit similar to bridge commander when ur controling ur ship or on the bridge,voice control would be sweet aka*hollering red alert at ur comp and ur ship goes 2 red alert* one of the sub games had that jus a thought, jus curious is it jus going to be the alpha quadrent or can u like travel to the gamma and delta quadrents, or hve species from there? say left over domminion ships and soldiers hanging around from the dominion wars, and hopefully when ur doing away missions would be like ST Elite Forxes with the hazard team keep up the good work hopefully this game combines all the aspects of the popular st games.
