Anyone else think the Tholian concept looks a LOT like an Atta from Tabula Rasa?

Not that I dislike it or anything, I happened to LOVE Tabula Rasa and miss it dearly, just saying...

Vast majority of this I like.

I will say a couple things though:

1) - I like the idea of sets, I definitely like the look of that Borg set - But please for the love of Bacon let us turn it off if we want. (I have one character for whom that set would fit perfectly. All the rest would not fit at all.)

2) - Melee - I've got mixed feelings here. On the one hand, I like melee as it is today, it's enjoyable, quick, and combo-focused, which is fun.

On the other hand, there are definitely tweaks to be done; and the new system could be many times better. So basically what I'm saying is - please don't stray TOO far from where we're at, unless you can make it incredibly enjoyable.

Also on melee - new weapons, we need them. I know you want the new melee system in first, and that's OK; but please make sure new weapons are coming shortly thereafter. I'm absolutely dying at present <x.x>; (Okay not really dying, but you know what I mean.

3) - Crew Deaths - On the one hand this is an interesting idea; but on the other hand it could be really irritating. As an alternative, could we pay to have the same crew member back? (As in, they're injured badly and need time to recover?)

This may not matter if the 'crew' option means they're just faceless goons; but if they do what I hope they do - and actually stand at a station somewhere within your ship, it'd be nice if I could have them back in some fashion, as if they were going to do that I'd probably spend a fair amount of time building them, even if they're basically statues. (I'm weird like that.)

4) - Is the uniform issue why our BOs cannot have Off Duty uniforms? When that issue is resolved can they have Off Duty uniforms?

(Could you check my thread about Off Duty uniforms in the BO section? Please?)

A few things....

First - most of these ideas sound great. I would hope free-targeting would be optional (there's a very good reason I play MMO's and not FPS's) and Borg gear could be "toggled" like kits or armor.

Next - the reason given for not including Caitain BOffs makes no sense. Any conflict Caitain BOff would have are identical to conflicts Fed Klingons, Ferengi, Regalians, Pakled, and any others I might have missed will have. The issue will have to be addressed anyway. I don't see why adding Caitains to the mix will make the issue harder to deal with.

They could just add a check in the promotion system. If promoting a Caitain, Fed Klingon, etc.... see is those have been bought in the C-Store? If yes, then the promotion goes through. If no, then maybe the BOff refuses the promotion "at this time." Heck... how many promotions did Riker turn down before he took the USS Titan? Even Picard turn down a promotion at one point.

I do have one question? What about the Borg BOffs? The liberated Borg were a perk for getting the lifetime sub. Anyone with 480 Cryptic point can buy the two Borg BOff's and promote them getting their own playable liberated Borg on either side. Will the Borg BOffs be exempt from promotion? Just curious.

I was wondering if we will have Delta Flyers in the game, like the one on Star Trek Voyager?

Forgot about the Delta Flyers if we can't lunch shuttles from our ship it pointless to have them in game.

Tholians = look great

So many questions asked and so few answered=NOT so great! Thank you for answering two of them!


Asked:


1. When will we see some Klingon sashes for our FED BOs?

2. When will we see bridge functionality/travel /combat/ panel interaction that is much needed to be trek?
( More ship interior usage, uniforms, computer use, auto navigation by system, alternative view point instead of instance ( IE ready room to bridge).

3. When will we be able to customize uniforms (by class) for NPCs?

4. When will we see a new BO training system/Trade/Recruit (exchange style) with new BOs and banked fleet skills to prevent training fraud/theft among players?

5. Fleet Admirals : will be able posses fleet star bases, but will be be able to have a same instance (fleet action by other fleets and factions) capture the flag/ or base, and will we be able to place them in Federation Space?

6. When will tier 5 ships be updated across the board? (IE Universal: 1 Commander, 3 Lt. Commander, 1 Lt. slots) so all classes may utilize all ships potential? ( 8 weapons slots forward and aft)

7. Playable Captain BOs when? (Want want !)

8. Android Playable/ Hologram character/ BOs when? (Want want !)

9. Sitting in chairs...ever?

10. When will BOs be able to use kits?

11. Mission replay ever?

12. Klingon and Fed teaming?

13. When will we be able to include away teams on STF and Fleet Actions with not enough Captains?

14. When will we see "Yesterday's Enterprise" TNG Military Uniform and white Phaser belt? (for extra weapons slot available on all uniforms)

15. When will we be able to mix and match all COM badges and uniforms variations for full customization as advertised?

16. When will we see the title system/powers ( First Officer, Chief Medical Officer, Security Chief, Transporter Chief)?

17. When will you fix the Galaxy X that needs a refit turn rate?

18. When will we be able to max out our character tree and unlock all LVL III abilities? (Fleet Admiral?)
Or leave the skill tree open to move points around? ( re specs are a band aid to a bad system)

19. When will we see a BO/ NPC Ship interior placement tool?

20. IN GAME (NON C-Store) expanded commissioned crew roster as suggested before C-Store release?
(no increase at VIce Admiral? like 6 slots?) for crew?

21. When will be able to customize uniforms for BOs that we currently can not?(BORG STF, BREEN, HOLO SCIENCE OFFICER...ETC)

22. When will we be able to use all newly purchased uniforms with (all) BOs?

**23** When will we be able to have NPC fleets composed of our Captains follow us around the universe?
23A Shortly after Fleet Admiral is introduced?
23B Can we then Compose away teams from all crews and/or NPC Captains?

24 When will we able to take away teams of 7? (or up to 7, and let us decide how many up to 7 to take,
want more BOs on away teams)

25. Can we keep BO's after they train another BO? ( instead of jacking up the exchange prices, people would be more willing to train if they did not lose the skill.)

Thank You......we still have a long way to go......


Answered:
Q: picardalphaclearance: (wrong name spelling ) Sitting in chairs...ever? Mission replay ever?

Dstahl: Sitting in chairs has been low priority as we have far more urgent requests for the animators and tech-art developers, but itís something that we will get to eventually. Mission Replay is scheduled for Season 3ís release.


I am glad I am a LTS because we still have a long way to go..........to make this Star Trek. When can we name our customized species instead of just calling them Alien?
I have to agree with you on everything you said.
This game feels more like magical fantasy game than sci-fiction the way they are going with most things.
1.Now i want to no why we can't do research on our ships.
2.Make our career mean something. example science officer who just like doing research. this is were crafting comes in. they will get blueprints and research then to unlock their serects. this way it more fun.

Simple cosmetic request for T5 galaxy and nebula's - let us have the Gal X warp nacelles as options, so we can recreate the "Venture Variant" retrofit as seen in DS9. Since the Gal X is already in game, this shouldnt be much of a problem.

Thx.

about crew death i think it should be recoverable/buyable from allied planets or sbs it would be a irrantant, but it would add abit of realism. take the breen missions. on my adv escort i had got blown up and had massive damage. i only had 50 crew memeber left. the rest were greyed out. by all means they should have been killed. but instead my crew recovered in a few min. like rabbits. crew death would also add abit more trek imo.
