I just love the city that the second Dominion FE occurs in! It really feels like a city outside of North America. To me, it feels like a blend of Mediteranian, and Louisiana Cajun with just a touch of Korea. Magnificent!
Please add more of these areas to the game. There is so much potential for this location and places like it for real roleplaying opportunties. If given the time, I'm sure that enough DXP missions could be added that if a player wanted to make a truely Pasifict character, they could go from Ensign to Captain without having to get into a single fight or brawl.
I agree, however its proximity to DS9 will limit its use post this FE unfortunately. People at RA-VA levels will just stay on DS9
RPers will most likely use it. RA/VA characters on DS9 who are there for STFs aren't really 'socializing' except to confirm STFs anyway, so it's really a non-issue as far as those players are concerned. It's hard to get into RP or whatnot when you have no idea when the next queue is going to pop up.
