I am with you OP. I got The Foundry email and am going to give the game another go. I was here at launch but various issues drove me away. Now player content (diplomatic missions!!!) + a new gaming rig = me back on the bridge of my science ship. I am going to patch up tonight after work and I am looking forward to it.
One question. I have not played for over a year..how long will it take to patch? Can I do it tonight and still play or should I overnight it? No, I am not using dial-up!
I haven't tried your mission yet Darren but tomorrow, but also try Cojoined, fantastic story driven mission.
Seconded - Cojoined is really first class.
I went on half heartedly to try out the Foundry on Tuesday, ended up playing for hours on Tuesday and Wednesday night, had an absolute blast. Been very impressed with how much good content there is already, and how non linear it is.
Cryptic has a epic hit on it's hands with editing tools this good (not just STO specifically, but in general) - at least if they keep polishing the game.
