# 1 Livestream Q & A from Forum Fans!
05-12-2014, 06:28 PM
Hailing all Captains!

This Friday we will continue our new effort to bring some Q & A to our Livestream Broadcasts! Check it out on our TwitchTV Channel here!

This thread shall remain stickied at the top of the General Discussion sub-forum to allow for forum users to submit questions to be answered by STO Community Manager CaptainSmirk during his next Livestream show.

Submit your questions here by EoD Thursday, June 26th, for a chance to have your question answered.

The team will pick which questions Friday morning, that will be answered during the show. We will post the Q & A list here in the main OP, and every week we will update the list to add the latest responses. We will also DELETE all questions from the previous week once the chosen few have been picked and replied to. We want to keep this from becoming a endless scroll of replies, so the deletion of questions will only be to keep the thread short and sweet, as well as current.

NOTE: All answers will be subject to change. Sorry, but I have to expressly include that.

Tune in to hear your answer, or watch for the Livestream Recap after the show to link you to the recorded version if you can't make it!

Remember forum folks, we can only answer legitimate questions that won't leak anything about new content that is currently REDACTED, or anything that isn't related to our current or former gameplay. Questions about other employees interviews, or information that has since changed will most likely not get into the list.

Thanks for your participation everyone!


This week's Question & Answers:

Thanks again everyone!

The new TR-116B rifle - will it have a new model? Do you plan on getting one, Smirk?

Also maybe known as "SFC3"

# 4 In Progress Accolade Removal
06-25-2014, 03:47 PM
Captain Smirk,

While this is not about the Foundry, could you please pass this along to the Dev team?

With the removal of the Exploration missions (and associated accolades), can we get a way to remove "In progress" accolades that can no longer be obtained?

For example, having started the exploration missions in the star clusters but not finishing them. Once removed, the in progress accolade will be there forever.

Speaking of a forever accolade in progress, a Fleetmate has the "In progress" accolade from the Year 1 celebration of having Q transform him into different creatures 5 times. He didn't know it was an accolade back then and it is no longer being offered. It annoys him to which he gripes to me about it.

More KDF content?

Coke or Pepsi?

With Memory Alpha's removal, many foundry authors are forced to move their mission starting doors to sector space. Is this removal permanent or will the place get an updated ground map eventually?

Playable BOFFs? Are we ever gonna be able to 'play' as our bridge officers instead of our captain all the time? Even if it's only in social zones.

1) Is there any plans to have another Foundry Mission Bonus Mark Weekend or have "Mark Packages" a standard part of content specific and/or content related and/or content approved Foundry Mission Rewards?

Having Borg Related foundry missions give bonus Omega Mark Packages, for instance, is a great way to get players to do Foundry Missions as opposed to just "grinding' Infected Conduit 200 times.

The last one was great, but I don't think a lot of players even knew about it, plus many of the "Descriptions" for Foundry Missions, didn't specify 1, 2 or 5 players, what difficulty or skill level it was designed for, or whether they took 10 mins or 10 hours to run. If both of these "Information" issues could be addressed, I think it would work much better.

2) Are there any plans to have a "News Popup" like the one in Nevewinter when you first log in with a character, that spotlights Foundry Missions and spotlights Bonuses and/or Events?
Please ... Make it so ...!

When will the kit modules get their own search category on the exchange?

Since you're under NDA, that rules out most of the questions I have.

BUT I would ask the following:
If allowed, which ONE map within STO would the Devs like to re-do?

Last year, we might have heard "ESD interior!" I'm curious (without breaking any NDAs) if you can ask the Devs, then share with us.

It also gives us a sense what they'd love to work on, if given a chance, and/or have played themselves and want to see changed.
