# 1 Andoria... What a waste.

A wish for season 8.

It would be great if Andoria could be developed a bit more. Maybe an area that could be used as a social zone.

Perhaps a slightly more temperate and inviting area, something like winter wonderland with some locals and an Andorian tavern. Maybe an exchange, bank, etc.

Might make a good tie in with the Andorian ship.

Andoria is just one of those failed dreams that got pushed into a micro singularity.
Earth Solar System
Starship interior games
All and more can be found in that sink hole.

That is not me speaking badly about STO. All compaines have dreams/plans that just does not get off the ground. 2 letters 1 number EV1 But who knows maybe they will have a reason to do something with it in the future. If not... its still a fun place to hike and run.

Do you realize how cold Andoria is? There's a reason why those guys are blue, IJS.

Though I do feel ya. It's like realizing that you'll never be able to wipe those pesky Klingons off Uranus.

I'd like to see all of the planetary maps get the New Romulus treatment. Earth might be well tamed but there must be something out there in the Vulcan desert.

You ever drive past new housing subdivisions and see the Coming Soon: Swimming Pool or Coming Soon: Tennis Courts? Andoria and Risa feel like that. Where it's anyone's guess when/if the pool/tennis court is gonna ever get built.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Hmm, me not so much, at least not for EVERY planetary map. New Romulus already has the feeling of a traditional ground-based MMO to me, except the quests are "ambient" and progress-based instead of "Do x number of y". That said, I prefer the New Romulus quest system to the Nukara Prime or Defera Invasion quest system, since you can do anything you like to get to 100% and more or less ignore the most boring (or hardest) stuff.

Rather, I'd like for SOME zones to be "New Romulus"-ized and OTHER zones, especially "peaceful" zones like Risa to get the "Q's Winter Wonderland" treatment. A medium-sized zone with regularly scheduled "event" quests that everyone can participate in.

Imagine it. Every 20 minutes, a Risa beach SHARK ATTACK where you fight sharks surfing in on the tide. And every 50 minutes, a Risa SWIMSUIT CONTEST, where only characters who bought the open jacket costumes are eligible.

And so on.

I would love it if Andoria and Vulcan can get the New Romulus treatment. I wan to climb mohntains on Andor and hike the Forge on Vulcan. I am fine with Risa getting the Winter Wonderland treatment.

My personal favorite was a sign advertising a new office complex "coming soon in 1986" that wasn't removed until around 1994.

There is so much that could be done to Andoria, as one of the founding members of the Federation it deserves a bit of love and should be more than an unused ground PvP arena...even if it doesn't get the "New Romulus" treatment a Defari treatment would be nice (not the invasion zone). I mean Andorians don't live in the wind and flying snow all of the time.

RISA has the best chance of a Social Zone Upgrade.

Put a half dozen mini-Vacation type missions.

And it all gets paid for by a C-Store "Vacation Wear" Custome Pack with swimwear and Hawaiian shirts.
