Is there a pattern here? Or is it a countdown?
Now sure, Dstahl is a tad busy - but this is something you've committed to and shouldn't be dependent on one person. For Q's sake, today's the 5th!
We all know you're working on something super secret that is going to blow our socks off - but the suspense is killing me! Is it UGC? Is it Starbases??? Something better????? If you really really can't say, how about at least throwing us a bone with an interview about the new diplomacy system or some information about the upcoming Klingon PvE so we have something to drool over for the next few weeks in sweet anticipation?
Honestly a new Engineering report wouldn't be much different then it is now. Anything that has already been released will be removed. All the stuff marked as in development that we don't have yet would stay the same. Other stuff can be found in the latest State of the Game. Keeping an eye on Tribble also helps. As for stuff to drool over, there were some screen shots Dstahl posted up about ship interiors. I don't remember where they are though.
I agree with Bracknell, CBS has to approve before Cryptic begins development. It wouldn't make any sense to develop then get approval. Most likely the process is Cryptic has an idea and makes a general plan. If CBS approves it then Cryptic begins a more detailed plan and then begins development. CBS may have to approve other things during development.
