Dan, mind taking look at my ESD Proposal?

I have an idea that the Space Doors on the old ESD can be functional with the sliding door tech the team implemented with the new content.

All I'm saying is that I hope it's less of a fleet action and more of an Open PvP match to destroy or defend the station based on your faction.

For repeatable raids, a fleet action makes sense but the big reveal should be an open PvP instance to reward the diligence of Klingon players who really haven't had a PvP experience - despite allegedly being a PvP faction.

In Everquest we did have GM Events between the Good and Evil factions, so instead of having it as a Raid it be simply a GM event at certain times and Federation players defend the Starbase in their various instances.

Cryptic analyze the outcome and the average result is the changes that occurs.

Then why not make the potential ESD FA run like DS9, upon arrival there's the option to either engage in the conflict, which personally I'd like to see be both Space and Ground, like Starbase 24. Or you can enter system and use as normal but ESD would obviously look different, either partly destroyed or the new space Mushroom?

Frankly, I retract my previous statement. THIS would be more exciting then Utopia Planetia... Especially if done right

I have mixed feeling about this ...

1.- Having the klingon force attacking Earth everyday (or running around it to enter the zone) seems very out of canon to me. You dont usually see klingon warships around Earth. Same would go for feds around Qonos.

2.- If this ends up being a fleet action for klingons, it would suck for new players to have missed it.


So what are the possible solutions.

1.- Skip the fleet action and make it a PvP event for a weekend, similar to what CoH did for launch with the devs playing as the enemies at some times of the day. This would be my prefered option.


2.- Make the fleet action for klingons, but only attach it to Earth for a weekend, then add it to the replay mission console at captains room for everyone. Or make one of the rooms in ships a Holodeck, where you can put this now, and any future events of this kind later.

I don't care if Klingons attacking Earth every day makes sense or not. This sounds really awesome. Can't wait to see the new ESD fed side and can't wait to blow the current one up kdf side!

I could also see this as being STO's first big live event. We could have a few of the new weekly quests leading up to this moment, on both sides. Then, select a date and time, for the actual live event!!

Or they could make it a standard event for the time being and, once the event has ended, hook it up to mission replay or the Guardian of Forever as something players can go back and continue to experience.

I'm bumping this, solely because I think this would make STO epic!
