I agree with everything JonBuck says above -- this was an excellent mission.
One caveat -- if one disables the Axon after they've popped their Photonic Galors, the Photonic Galors don't disappear the way they would if a Kheldan class ship were destroyed. Since we can't destroy the Axon (for good reason), the Photonic ships should drop when it's disabled the same as they normally would.
The atmosphere of the new map is amazing and gorgeous. I'm glad I have a good video card for it -- it was one thing when we're in the blue subspace haze, but the environmental effects were spot on even when we were just in the ship proper.
I'm a little disturbed that we don't have any medkits of our own -- both with the Deferi and now here we have to scavenge med equipment from what's on hand. I have a Holographic Science Officer with all medical skills (thanks to the referral program). I'd like to think he'd bring his medkit with him instead of hoping he can find something in the Cardassian sickbay. (This underscores the need to let our bridge officers do things they should be able to do -- medical officers or even just science officers being at the top of the list).
All in all (with the notes from the main series thread in regards to the unfortunate use of Drake still in place), I'm actively looking forward to next week. Nice work!
Is there a typo in the reward? What does "-400 proton resistance" mean? Is it supposed to be "anti-proton"? And if it is supposed to be anti-proton, does this mean it actually makes you more susceptible to anti-proton damage?
Really enjoyed this episode. Its nice to see more NPC's interacting with each other especially when they are fighting each other in space it makes the game feel like its alive. Plus its awesome to fly in amongst all the combat going on.
Some nice touches once your onboard being able to read the logs etc would love to see more of thing.
Can't say I lost to the Phantasm. I did it with two characters. One away team was Sci heavy so I managed to outheal his (quite impressive!) damage on my Captain. The other away team was Engi heavy which focused on deploying a billion turrets with a handful of drones. I think I simply kept him entertained with the room full of toys. Great mission all in all, can't wait for next week.
