This didn't make any sense. Starfleet wouldn't have dissolved that task force or took down their defenses, especially after how close the Borg came to taking over Earth. If anything, the return of Voyager with all their information would have bolstered their defenses. It would not be unprecedented for Starfleet to keep defenses up for as long as the Borg. In Kirk's day he encountered a race known as the Furies which did a good job of wrecking the Klingon fleet until the Enterprise came in to save the day. Starfleet setup defense posts around the area where the Furies entered the alpha quadrant through an artificial wormhole, and those defenses persisted until the Furies returned during Picard's turn at the wheel.

Any race that poses that much threat to the alpha quadrant and is unpredictable at their return requires constant vigilance, and it makes no sense for Starfleet to decide to go to sleep on it.

It was good to hear from 7 of 9. She has the same human last name as I do (Hansen). Its pretty cool to get some info on the story line, as to what has been happening in the Star Trek Universe. I would like to learn more about what some of the other characters have been up to also. Very cool.

I first heard about STO last year in GameInformer. I thought it would be up and running by now. I've recently read that 2011 is when it will be up. Is that Correct? Is development taking that long or is there some other reason its taking a long time?

That was a nice little supplemental log and it was good to hear from Seven.
I'm kind of scratching my head like Seven though. Starfleet only waits a few years and then pack the whole task force in? Makes no sense, especially against an enemy like the Borg. Definitely looking forward to the next time line update.

Marko, Cryptic only got the license for STO just over a year ago. That's not very long in MMO terms for development. Cryptic is actually blazing along compared to many other MMOs so we just have to be patient.

As others have said, this `supplemental' approach not only gives us something to enjoy while waiting between official timeline "Path To ..." updates, but the supplemental information has a different focus to it; it can focus in on details which aren't necessarily crucial to the larger context of the game.

Well done, and the characterization of Ms. Hansen read as spot-on to me. If only the Voyager writers had consistently treated the character so well.

I take it that Cryptic's "interviewer" here was Kestrel, yes?

In any case, thanks again all. Much appreciated.

Actually, Alivet wrote this. She's fantastically talented and you will see more of this from her.

I could imagine the Dominion infiltrating Starfleet leadership and choosing this option to weaken the Federation.

You claim that it doesn't make sense...However the U.S. government/military has done this same activity throughout our history. When they see an adversary hurt, they change their focus to another possible adversary and keep looking away until the first one somehow returns to power and then the government and military are in a rush to re-organize. Governments do this even if the Analsyts say different. Does it make sense? No, but it is done.

Thanks for that Awen, a good read - does this mean that the next path to 2409: 2386 is on its way soon. =D

I really liked how this one was set up. It has a much more personal touch to it, and it puts a nice little focus to it that you couldn't get with the normal delivery system.

I would love to see more like it, interviews, news reports, maybe even some memos or personal communications to go with the normal history.
