Once they asked the authors to do a Risa episode with Stahl... Compared to that, this challenge seems reasonable.

Can I just ask a quick question - if I wanted to reference or use locations/events covered within the Star Trek: Vanguard novels, would that be allowed under the EULA?

I'm not entirely sure whether characters from the novels can be used either, but I wouldn't just to be on the safe side.

Referencing them should be fine.
It's the likeness rights that cause the big problems I think.

I dont see how its a problem, CBS owns the rights and the characters arnt portrayed by any actors... I think that one is safe, as is the New Frontier novels.

Guess what, Tholian space mobs (which cannot be reskinned) randomly produce mirror Federation ships as well as Tholian ones.

This means that in any given situation you cannot even be certain which a player will be facing when a Tholian mob is placed. This is actually a bigger limitation than no contacts being available; at least you can plan your mission around that--This will change from play to play.

Thats not too bad, I'll just add a short comment at the enemys base that you can see the file that explains this but you dont have time for intel gathering.

If I'm not mistaken, the mob you put down will be all Tholiam ships. One of the powers they use calls in mirror universe ships, as seen in the various PvE content against Tholians, so I believe this is what you're seeing. It's part of the STO lore of the Tholians and what their up to nowadays.

Cheers,

At what level of ships do they use this power ?

This challenge just gets more and more .... unreasonable is a nice way to put it.
