They moved Azure Nebula from B'Moth Sector to Federation Space. Should Federation now named Ferengi Alliance?

Maybe the Tholians are involved with it? I guess it depends on just what "uninhabitable" entails.

I'm really looking forward to this season. It seems like it truly has new areas to seek out and explore.

Looks interesting, but so did Season 6 at first, before realising it's just a pointless shmup grind and total dilithium sink...

I just hope these new missions are going to reward dilithium or other worthwhile items or currency, similarly to Deferi sector or Eta Eridani dailies. Otherwise I don't see myself doing these more than a couple of times and forgetting about them completely, just like Nukara or all the Fleet missions, which I didn't do in months...

Oh how I want this to turn out good... And I mean "replayably good", not "be impressed at first and never touch it again good".

I am unable to get Datalogs out of this Event at any decent rate, 1 Datalog per Hour is just not good enough if the Event just lasts one hour and if you have 11 Characters and are still working on the first Set after all this time, thats just no fun.
Well then, you will be in luck. Datalogs are going away along with the current stf edc and drop system.
They will be replaced by the reputation system coming in season 7

As for the new sector block, yay cannot wait, and boo to any timegated stuff!

*meh*
All playing those missions during the featured timeframe does is give you bonus rewards, not cut you out of content for not playing during a certain hour.

The Tholians moved it with one of those silly webs. They're not quite the sieves they appear to be.
I was someone else here til the forum/account transition lied

Looks like there will be several places for EVA suits. Galorndon Core, a geologically unstable, barely habitable planet where prolonged exposure of humanoids to the intense magnetic fields result in synaptic breakdown... I'd say I'd want a EVA suit there, even if they aren't required...

Can you say Nukura?

------------------

Some other issues of note:
  • Carraya System - should be in Romulan space
  • Archer System (with Archer IV) should be near Sol one would think, not in Klingon space
  • Nimbus seems to be well out of place as it was located in the Neutral Zone and founded after the Federation-Klingon War (So I doubt it would be that far into Romulan Space, even with the Romulans participating)

Lol, Tau Camel (Dewa is similar to Deva, which is the Croatian word for "Camel")? 1 hump or 2 humps?

Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.

But the Azure Nebula wasn't supposed to be there in the first place.

So what you're saying is, Tholians time traveled into the past to ruin the planet, so they get Archer involved in the Temporal War, which in time helped found the Federation of Planets, which makes them a threat to themselves by thwarting their plans?

All of which started when PWE bought them. Doesn't really seem like a coincidence to me...

Of course, that's just my opinion. Who knows what's really the case?

If it is Perfect World's "idea", then they aren't listening to us. It's like they are purposely shooting STO in the foot, to shut the game down, so they can use Cryptic's resources to focus on new games.
