how can they return? if the scattered the ships across time and the crews vanished. Plot hole #1 but hay, what ever. looks like a fun series. can't wait to play
These are the fleet of Dominion Ships that the Prophets disappeared during the Dominion War. The Prophets got rid of them so Sisko and cew didn't have to deal with them during the war. But we have to deal with them now. As far as they are concerned, the Dominion War is still on.
i really hope the ships you fight that are a part of this 40 years out of date fleet are noticeably inferior to the 2409 spec ships we have been fighting. thats a long time, and there's been nothing but cold and hot war since then, there should be a big difference between modern ships and those 2800.
though i doubt they can be bothered to give them unique stats, they didn't for the D7s you fight in the time travel tos episodes.
I want to clarify my statement made earlier where someone asked if what they were seeing was all CG - all the footage was made via a cutscene tool using our game assets in new maps from the series - but yes there is a map with a shuttle interior that was shot just as you see it and yes you get to do an amazing spacewalk outside - the video teases the entire story span of the whole series not just episode 1 and many parts of the video shows content that is not finished hence the use of our cutscene engine. I am seeing people post things like you can pilot a shuttle from it's helm - that is not what what I meant by it wasn't CG. I never said it wasn't an NPC at the helm. The STO team has some great new environments , engaging story and some new amazing tech launching with this series and like you I will be hanging out on the 11th to give it a spin and be amazed.
