To the est of my knowledge they have access to any ships from any computer games licenced from CBS, and have full access to the ships from the FASA startrek RPG and associated products. No idea why cryptic hasn't gone whole hog to holler on getting these assets in game.

Release 8.5 "STO The Next Generation"

Let the happy old bug stomping commence, along with refinement toward enhancing each factions play experience!

yeah, they don't have a license to use any FASA or game material. They can only use the TV shows, the first 10 movies and they can kinda sorta use stuff from the books.

The old computer game stuff is owned by Bethesda and Activision. They can't use the FASA stuff because not only do they not have a license for it, but neither does FASA anymore.


Back on topic, The KDF isn't even losing anything, no one came and took away your Bioneural torps to put in the lockboxes.

Yes that's correct.


And canon doesn't "favor the feddies", The Federation/Starfleet IS Star Trek.

Every other race was put there for the Federation to meet, interact with, provide a counterpoint for, etc.

Star Trek Online isn't canon. It's an MMO.
All cloaks should be canon.

True, but STO being a multifaction MMO meant draw both hardcore fans and new players alike means it should cover more than just the outlook of the feds. Sure they are yhe primary faction but more than just fedfans exist whom enjoy the IP.

So the fact that those other species were building empires spanning thousands of systems before mankind even stepped foot on the moon is irrelevant because of the point of view of the narrative?

I'm sorry guys, I forgot to quote lordmalak when I posted that.



Here's the quote:

He was talking about actual TV/Movie canon which is why my response came out like it did.


I don't think STO should be all about the Federation and I think a one faction game would be severely boring.


Sorry for the confusion.

Ultimatum, the quote you've attributed to me above wasn't me. It was Malak:

I'm not well-versed enough in canon to really contribute to canonicity debates

Who let you in here? Go back to your carebear Feddie forums, the grown-ups are talking here.
