With the new First City and the upcoming ~whatever~ that will be easing levelling a KDF Character, I've been thinking about the Klingon Courthouse seen in ST:VI as well as ST:ENT.

I see two questions:
  • Where is it? The space on the First City Map is too small!
  • What use and/or need do we have for it?
  1. In a separate Instance from the First City, the entrance from the First City is actually only a descending set of Turbolifts/Stairs that takes us down to the Courthouse. As the Courthouse dates back to the earliest days of the Empire, days when the home world was rife with civil wars utilizing primitive Nuclear Weapons, the Courthouse was designed to withstand a Nuclear Attack to the city.
  2. Well, Foundry Missions for one, for another, it can be a good location for RPers, Fleet Meetings, throw the Judge down there and get him off a bench and onto the bench.. If they ever do any more KDF-exclusive Storyline PvE, a trial sequence, where we are the defendant or the Prosecution/Defense would be awesome.. Quite frankly, it would have more use than Risa or Andoria at this point, that's for sure.

Good idea, we've got the judge, why not the courtroom?

Oh just nitpicking but I think you meant Star Trek VI, not IV right?

Um...yeah...? Do tell.
I must have missed that info, what pray tell do the developers have in mind to help ease the pain of the grind to level? A new mission pack? A couple story arcs?

That's why I put ~whatever~ there, they haven't given us any significant details, just that they're doing.. Something.. That will supposedly help ease the KDF grind.

The Klingon academy and a KDF tutorial are both still in the Engineering Report, that'll help.

I think the courtroom is a great idea, I've noticed several door in the First City that apparently don't go anywhere (don't open on approach) so there's numerous places they could tack it on to the map in a future update.

I've also noticed that several areas around First City ( the med lab, and the offices near the Hall where J'mpopk is) seem to be taken directly from the KDF ship interiors (the med lab and the engineer's office, specifically). While I really enjoy the bridge interiors, they really stand out from the rest of the First City map-the art doesn't quite fit right. I think it would be cool to see these rooms updated too, to correspond with the art and assets used on the rest of the map.

May I ask how? Seeing as how the KDF War College (Academies are for academics) and tutorial will only help new Klingons (or new Alts), how will that help ease the leveling grind for those past Lt.5?

I'd love to see the courthouse in game. I think there was a Foundry author who made a pretty good replica in the interior so I guess it would be just up to Cryptic to work on the exterior. Though, I'm wondering if the courthouse seen in Star Trek VI was located necessarily in the First City? I guess what I'm trying to say is that it is my best hope that Cryptic would build another city/neighborhood, with the courthouse being the main attraction. Will they? Probably not. But I can have my dreams stomped on.
