Priority One Podcast - Episode 66 - Al Good Things...Part 1

Quote:
03 February 2012 | Its the show so nice we are going to air it twice! We are joined by Cryptic Lead Designer, Al Rivera on the show this week! He answers your questions, and in such great detail, that we had to split the show into two parts. Al answers some of our questions and a metric ton of community questions. There is quite possibly more information in this one interview, than in all our previous interviews combined! Thank you Al, this was a treat for us and, we hope, for our listeners. Enjoy Part One of Episode 66 and tune in Monday February 6th to hear Part 2, the thrilling conclusion of Episode 66, “Al Good Things.”

Our Blank of the Week features a couple of fantastic Videos and a message from a friend. First, Lily Garrett produced a shockingly good STO Anniversary Tribute Video, to mark the occasion. And not to be outdone, Cryptic released an awesome promo video for the forthcoming Dominion Featured Episode Series. Also we take a minute to talk about Adam Ihle, the creator of the U.S.S. Enterprise - F. He finds himself in need of some assistance, and the Star Trek Community is here to prove that we are the living Roddenberry Vision. Make it so!

In STO News, we cover Season 5 Dev Diary entries 15, 16 and 17, which feature news from Stephen D'Angelo on the upcoming Dominion Series, STO's move to STEAM, and the Foundry Author's Tip Jar, as well as highlights from the recent patch notes!

Check out the new Priority One Facebook Page and say hello!

Also, be on the lookout for Alex's newest Priority One Comic Series Update. Check it out here!

Listening...

"Let's watch the video"... 2 seconds later... "That was Epic!" LOL

Adam Ihle also makes an "apperance" in the Odyssey Shack Down at Utopia Planitia, as Commander Ihle.

Thank You AL for the warm reassurances of upcomming KDF content to complete the faction I love.


SOooooo... Hiring Podcasters.... I know of one that may be of use to you.
Not me of course. I'm way to unstable for game development.

To bad the first part was nothing but fanboi fluff. We have all heard for 2 years of more Klingon content. I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe in Part 2 you will ask some tough questions like getting the decloaking bug fixed or when the rest of the Klingon ships listed in f2p blog #10 will be released. Of course I won't hold my breath on that either.

The Son'a were dying during the events of Insurrection but since they then went and joined forces with the Dominion it's safe to say that they were getting expert help in genetic engineering to solve that issue. It would've been nice to have seen them added to the forces we fight in the Cardassian sectors, but oh well.

Great show guys, i enjoyed it alot.


Yo Al, you never comment on my part of the question about KDF uniforms, did the Orions not have any clothing of their own style before joining the klingons other than the few minor items?

Enjoying the show so far, and loving Al's chat. (Such a soothing voice, eh?) Pretty awesome that he's friends with Vince Zampella. Hot scoops! Now we need more missions with dolphins and whales and AUG-HBARs.

I rather wish the press releases (aka Dev Diaries) were reported with a little more... analysis or at least context. James parroted DD#16 about STO appearing on Steam, without the tiny bit of context that D'Angelo was talking about Steam's Free Games section and not its catalogue. James made it sound "totally new, tell your friends." Yes, do tell your friends! But I bought STO on Steam last summer on a $5 sale. Been launching it using Steam ever since.

First paragraph:
Quote:
Today, Star Trek Online joins the Steam free-to-play games list. Steam and STO have a long history together, with STO’s digital download version being a popular title in Steam’s portfolio of top tier games. We’re happy to continue being part of the Steam community now that STO has moved to F2P.
Nitpicky sure, I admit. And I'm sorry that it bugged me enough to write about. But I don't believe there's such a thing as being too accurate in news reporting. Not in an age with circular wikipedia references. Context and analysis is what separates facts from fan service.

This does raise the question of whether the game could use Son'a mixed in with its Dominion/True Way mobs.

Personally, I'd rather not see the Son'a as villains again. As far as I could tell, ST:Insurrection was a completed storyarc, with the Son'a reintegrated in the Baku culture. Though it may indeed be sad not to see the ship models again... I don't see how it could be milked for more entertainment while staying credible.
