Sector space that no longer feels like a shoe box and the new crafting system are light years(pun intended) superior to what this game offered at launch. I've seen improvements in use of imagination in other areas of the game as well, like comparing the Deferi content verse the old explore clusters. Lastly, I see more players then when I last left the game soon after the release of infected.
Not everything is great, I still feel ground combat is too tedious, but overall its a much better game and I compliment Cryptic for hanging tough in an uphill battle to make STO a respectable piece of work.
I haven't played end game and I not done any pvp. My comments are only about the content I have seen since re-subbing.
