Would someone be kind enough to provide a transcript? I have trouble paying attention to audio-only podcasts.

I like the fact that he admitted that the kdf needed more costumes.
I like the way the interview was conducted.
He is an honest man.

I don't think anyone would have been upset if there was a fleet vet ship. I think we all expect it coming too be honest. We are all a bit suprised that it hasn't happened yet.
BUT, please do not release the console on the vet ship to the fleet ships. But allow the fleet ship to use the vet console.

I wish he could tell us if a Fleet karfi was incoming (with a new skin).

There were some great bits in there.

FAW is well explained, but it sounds like it still needs to be ironed out because it involves an ability spanning programming issue.

A grid like territorial pvp system would only come after fixing normal pvp.

The Constellation class looks like it will be the next major star fleet canon c-store ship, with the picard maneuver console.

The Norway class might be one of the last canon additions star fleet wise.

Crafting expansion is a PWE mandate, but can only happen after May.

PVP will likely take things from NW, like the foundry.

The Negh'Var will likely be the next Klingon +1 c-store ship or something.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.

No problem, I apologize for any mistakes.

The Picard maneuver will interesting, I feel like they will need to do more than just the warp jump to make it worth a console. Other wise I don't see much use for it outside of shortening aphastrike distances, or brief attack evasion. Maybe they could add a decloak damage bonus to it or something.

I think it could work something like the Tier 5 Romulan rep power. Maybe like 3 seconds you can't be hit but can keep on firing.

I think we should have an official poll for some of the weird/Wolf 359 ships, see how many people want them.

That would be pretty fitting, but it brings up the whole ships are capable of targeting at warp thing, which kind of renders the maneuver useless doesn't it?

KDF have been needing new costumes for a very, very, very long time. If he just realized it now, that doesn't bode well for us.

I'll listen to the interview tomorrow as I'm too tired. a +1 negh'var sounds pretty sweet.
