I say no to this. I do not want to see all rewards folded into the Reputation system. It's not practical anyway since the Reputation system is only open to players at level 50+, and there are many missions and FE's that are available to lower-level characters.

My post was more 'tongue in cheek' about what cryptic are likely to want and not my own desires. The option to completely remove the level system and replace it with a single branched reputation system keeps the entire game uniform and expandable in more diverse ways. It is also apparently catering for what many players have 'been calling for' as has been the justification for several of the things appearing in season 7.

The Romulan system has already currently shifted rewards away from the Reman FE series, and the console has left the Assimilation mission, so I see this trend continuing later on as they are otherwise killing the need for people to craft/buy items with dilithium.

More dilithium sinks.

Even fewer ways to obtain it.

Don't scoff! This will fix the game.

I've no doubt that there are already internal discussions going on surrounding season 8, hopefully a lot of that talk is excluding the Federation (cause frankly, we've got enough for them for the time being).

Anyway, the purpose of this thread is to realistically detail everything we would want to see in the game once we get into Season 10 (this can include Season 10 content too).

##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### #####

By Season 10 I would like, most importantly, to see the full development of both the Klingon Defence Force and a fully playable (level 1 through to level 50+) faction for the Romulan Empire (or whatever name you'd give to a rebuilding Romulan-centered faction). This should include a fully fledged fleet (a minimum of 9 ships per tier; three ships per skill choice), a unique featured campaign for each faction (some of the Klingon missions are currently Federation copies/edits; these need to be removed/reworked so that they stand alone), fully accessible social zones along with unique STF, PvP & PvE content.

As mentioned above, I'd hope that Season 8 will at least focus on getting the Klingon Faction up to speed, then Season 9 could focus primarily on a playable Romulan Faction with Season 10 being the next universal update with new missions, ships and features for all.

Season 8 hopes for the KDF would be more (overdue) hair styles for KDF warriors, better attire customisation for KDF clothing, more starship customisation (a lot of the current designs are limited), and a couple of new races to choose from (Talarians as example). Wouldn't hurt to throw in more (M'Ress-style) hair for Caitian and Ferasan choices too, outside of the Z-Store.

Season 9, again as stated; Romulans. You've got the Romulans, you'll have the Reman too. I could personally see the Suliban and Vaadwaur being implemented as allies, as with (to a certain extent) the Son'a.

I'm aware that the development team doesn't exist just to work on new races, and I'm not suggesting that seasons 8 & 9 focus only on the above two mentioned factions, what I am saying is that they should be the main focus. You'll obviously have other featured episodes to play with (one that rewards with a Cardassian Boff would be nice (hint hint)), and more stories to tell.

More for Season 8 (seeing as there is less work faction wise as we've already got half a Klingon one); Unique Bridge Officers, specifically Breen, Jem Hadar and Reman ~ a little user customisation would go a long way to making a lot of people happy. Doesn't need to be a great deal, just some. Maybe give us 10 templates to choose from in regards to appearance or something then a unique attire or three to match? Just some variation so we're not all running around with identical Boffs.

##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### ##### #####

Anyway, that's it from me, for now. I'd ask other people throw their wishes in here too, though would ask that you remember this is specifically up to season 10. Anything you might think wont get covered before season 10 (a playable Tholian faction) there isn't any point in mentioning, cause it wont be a realistic goal.
Agreed.

I'd also add playable cardassians, and more ways to get Dilithium, support for the solo player, and each faction being on point with each other.

Not a bad idea this.

So every member of a fleet has their own... room? I'd rather you have this on your starship than your fleet base. Surely any Captain is going to have their own, customized quarters on their starship than they would on a starbase? Still, it's an idea.

I'm still not so sure about D'Tan. Was playing the early KDF episodes today and they've got you fighting the Romulans. Yet here we are, in the same year, allying with them. Not something I'd think J'mpok would do, especially considering the way Martok went down (for supposedly being weak and too open to outsiders). I guess J'mpok is a hypocrite.

I can't realistically see Cardassians any time soon (before or during season 10). It's unfortunate.

Season 8: Full KDF Content

-10 KDF exclusive missions

C-store Orion, Gorn and Nausican bridge packs

C-Store Negh'Var with Heavy Disruptor console/weapon and LTC and Ensign tac slots

C-Store Gorn heavy cruiser, orion escort(a ship, not a callgirl. Although... ) Nausican escort carrier to be rolled out throughout the season.

2 New level 50 STF's/FA's vs anything other than the borg or tholians

Season 9: Full PVP revamp

Full balancing pass for all ships, weapons and equipment(ground and space)

Equipment that has been removed from the game is either replaced with an item of the player's choice or is made available through crafting.

PVP is reworked as a persistant on-going territorial conflict which players can affect the expansion of borders, conquering of worlds and space based assets with a reward system that tracks your participation and efficiency/effectiveness(your percentage of completed goals, kill/death ratio, etc) similar to the reputation system.

GIVE THE PLAYERS A REASON TO PVP

Season 10+11: Full Romulan Faction + finish balancing off the factions re: ships and content with an eye towards a future of cross-faction content only for both pvp and pve

Too tired to go into this. Briefly, make it more intrigue/espionage/covert-based content rather than simply "go here, shoot this" missions. Scimitar IS NOT made a player owned ship, for the simple fact it should remain an over the top overpowered NPC only asset.

You might want to re-read my post.

I wasn't referring to us having to wait another five or six months, but was instead stating we've been waiting five or six months since season six.
