I'm honestly surprised by all the outrage about this... is it really that shocking that a fan pointed out that CBS doesn't seem to enforce canon in STO, and that a Cryptic employee(s) are aware of that fact?

I love STO and I absolutely LOVE working at Cryptic and more than anything I love making ships.

I was jabbing at the fact that it IS in fact pretty common for a lot of STO players to point out Canonical inconsistencies in our game, and that CBS never does, but you'd think they would lol! It's ironic, that's all. It doesn't bother me any - as an artist I really enjoy the freedom CBS gives me.
I'm just glad you were joking and not some pre ragequit rant. We lost Dan, it would suck if u left too.

Actually a few of us did pick up on that ... BUT I personally also see the beauty of venturing into the unknown a bit.

That's not how it was taken though. By some it was taken as dissatisfaction towards the game. Even I who originally took it as a joke did a double take and questioned the post after people came to me saying it might be some sort of rage post.

lol yeah - I'm never leaving STO. I make space ships for a living - it's the best job I've ever had lol!

I'm not trying to disparage STO or CBS here - but I'm not gonna act like it's some big surprise to me that like 90% of our game deviates in some form from Canon - it would be very silly to attempt that argument.


Now about how unprofessional I am - yeah... I already know that. I don't get paid for my good manners on the internets though lol! I love u guys.

Every show/movie that ST has ever made deviated from "canon", so why not a game based on it?
