A 'TON' of space missions huh.....I always get suspicious when Cryptic uses generic terms like that.......we've had the 'BIG' and 'EPIC' updates that failed to deliver.....'TON' is meaningless without some number attached to it.

'We developed it to take you right into the heart of the action.'.....I'm sorry,but after 2(!) years this really sounds like 'We were to lazy to actually finish the mission and design a space part for it.'

^ more likely.

I find it sad that a small team can defeat the Borg QUEEN as well...

Looks nice, but the Borg are a tired cliche and I'm pretty sick of them.

"Take you right into the heart of the action..." without wasting time in a space part.

Ok, so a space battle is apparently not part of the action.

But then again, what could a ITH space battle provide that the other three can't? Thinking up new space mechanics is a bit too much, granted.

What I would like to see is a new kind of kit the Queen drops, which you can customize with your reputation XP.

What rewards will we get for this? That's the question. Or will it be a hollow STF like Terradome? Sure we'll all play it and rant and rave about it, and sure kicking the queen off her throne will be a worthwhile reward but then what? A lock box, two uncommons and maybe one rare or if someone is lucky a very rare XI drop?

That concern aside, I can't wait to try this with my fleet!

So - is this also going to be broken down into "Into The Hive Ground" and "Into The Hive" Spce like the rest of the Borg STFs? What are the rewards for this? How about a Random piecce of Proto Borg Tech both space AND ground? I'd be cool with that....

Starcraft II infatuation?

First we get the Bortas, which looks like the Hyperion Command Cruiser.
Now the Borg Queen resembles the Queen of Blades.

No space portion is a bummer as well.

The first Dev blog for Season 7, and it about an STF! I would have thought it would be better to lead with something new. We have been waiting for over 2 years for this. How do I feel? Ya another STF which I would have to play to death to get the stuff I need/want. I'm more interested in how the Omega reputation system will work and affect me. It's taken me 9 month to get the MACO mk XII ground set, I want to know if it will take that long for the Omega.

If this is the only news about Season 7 than we are in trouble.

The TON of space missions I guess will be for the Romulan Reputation system. BTW. TON by most definitions means 100! Are we getting 100 space missions then? Or is this a Cryptic TON, which is 2?

Another opportunity missed by Cryptic.

Maybe you did not see the big one in front of it, most likely to be followed by two, and since we are in mid October and season 7 comes out mid November, we might get lots of blogs leading up to it.
