What I am realy hanging out for is some more screen shots of Star Fleet Academy :p
I can appreciate your enthusiasm as I play both sides of the game, but I think with the KDF faction fires warming up over a continued lack of development this sneak peek has two functions. First to whet the general appetite of the player base and second to give confidence to the KDF fan base.
Given the massive amount of new things that get pumped into the Fed side, and the growing KDF concern over the relative dearth of shinies for their faction, it is more effective that DStahl gave the KDF a visual assurance that love is in the pipe for them.
Besides anticipation is often the best part of a reward. Think of how much more satisfied you will be when your first impression comes from the inside without the preconceived notions that can come from an outside view that a screen shot could give you and the shadow of disappointment those preconceived notions often carry could sap the novelty out of the experience.
If the surprise of a punch line is what makes you laugh in a comedy shop, then it is the surprise of the novel that makes you marvel at the visage of a new land.
