Then you've got NPCs asking to do do still - find me some land, find me a bottle of kanar, warp to Deep Space Nine to get me a jumja stick... WTF?

If you want me to do missions, have me do missions, don't have me babysit or some crap.
Agreed. That's what New Romulus is: lots running around pressing F. Boo.

Cryptic put those puzzles and stuff (not entirely sure which stuff you're referring to specifically though) in the game to address the issue of "all combat, all the time!" What would you do to make gameplay use less combat, more diplomacy? Because it is needed.

Well, non-canon stuff like this makes me wonder if they're just not letting us have numbers just to be difficult.

Why can't we color the starship any color? All pink or all bronze? Why can't we change the color of the ship's engine blooms? Why can't we have the ability at some point to put a sovereign class hull on a saber saucer? Mix n' match!
If you read the Countdown comics, prequels to the 2009 movie, you would see that Data was indeed the captain of the Enterprise. The Path to 2409, which was posted on the website, and is now available on the Wiki or at Starfleet Academy, explains more. And it's all as "canon" as possible, since CBS has to approve every little thing. Even if CBS didn't have to approve it, literally everything that happens in STO is "non-canon," because it doesn't happen in one of the official TV series.

Same thing goes for the ship colors - CBS has certain restrictions in place. I'd have to go hunting for a bit, but there was a quote from DStahl a while back noting that CBS even had a say in what the turbloift doors look like.

I agree that more hull freedom would be nice, but allowing complete kitbashes wouldn't be attractive. Someone suggested in another thread a "nacelles" costume pack, that people could get from the C Store and be given some cool new nacelles to place on any ship. Things like that I would support.

The Romulans are friendly. Some of them. Others aren't. As for the Klingons - read the Path to 2409.

Not really sure what the canon issue is there. "Data" is B-4 with Data's memory engrams; remember that last scene in Nemesis? As for the registries, just as the TOS-era ships usually had ~1000 numbers and the TNG-era ships had ~70000 numbers, STO-era ships usually have ~90000 numbers.

Read the Path to 2409. It did wonders for me when I started the game. That is, before Cryptic took it off the website...

I still have the STO-based paperback book, "The Needs of the Many". It's sitting on my desk, in fact. Has the entire "Path to 2409" in the back.

Lagging, D/Cing, or rubberbanding? Here's some help.

The way that you are always treated as a lackey regardless of what the npc's rank is (sometimes they are lower rank, sometimes its even your own officers!) has been one of my most disliked parts of the game.

That said once you get to max level and start the endless STF grind you obviously don't have to deal with the imbiciles anymore.

Then of course they release new content such as the new romulas system where apparantly running around watering plants is something fit for a vice admira/lieutenant general.

You can send your duty officers off to raid ships, trade with other factions and craft consumables but as soon as it comes to watering a plant apparantly your the only one able to undertake it.
