An ETA is not necessarily a specific date, it can simply be a time frame. For example, he mentioned we'd see the Tholians in 2012. They wont even give a year for the KDF, which is just sad.

Our goal is to challenge Fleets to accomplish major objectives that will help define and differentiate Fleets from one another.
How will fleets "differentiate" themselves from each other? Other than making their base look different from other fleets'?

Whether or not we do more Feature Episodes, we need to have a steady pipeline of new content.
That's true, but... you don't really say what the content will be. I want more missions! They don't need cutscenes or voiceovers or whatever, just give me something to play (in fact I would say that all the fancy stuff of FEs just makes them take too long to produce).

The expectation is that we want to improve PvP and resolve some of the frustrating elements in the existing maps. Whether that means overhauling existing maps or making new ones is still TBD, but we have resources committed to this effort.
Well that's nice, but it sounds like you're just going to be revamping current maps / game modes. I want more stuff to do, not the same old same old, even if the same old is shinier and works better. Add PvP to the Fleet additions, or add territory control, or something!

In the near future you are going be seeing both new Bridge Officer and playable Captain Species. While Iím not at liberty to spoil what these are yet, itís on the schedule.
That's exciting!

Q: (CiprianP) When are you going to address the Elite STF loot table issue? Even if Gozer said it isnít broken, there is a very big discrepancy between the time and enemies we face in the normal version versus the time and enemies in the elite version when it comes to the loot we get.

Dstahl: While Gozer has looked into this and the system is working as designed, we are evaluating the loot given out in the STFs and determining if and when we are going to make an update to address this. You may see an update to this after the Featured Series ends.
Then the system IS designed so that people can go 100s of STF runs without any tech drops?

Some interesting if cagey responses. i think all of us basically want to hear firm(ish) dates and numbers. Ie 4 FE series a year and klingons stuff by late 2012 etc etc, and in the past thats not worked out too well with them missing dates and times and people then raging their heads off.

still it would be nice to have a rough idea about FE and klingons and what they can expect. being cautious, which they now seem to be is probably better in the long run but its difficult to take when it was so open before.

Ships which shouldn't be around 100 years in the future (or more). Miranda and Excelsior I'll sort-of forgive, since they are rather long-lasting. But NX-Classes and TOS Constitutions? Those ships are 250-150 years old. I realize some people want to fly their favorite ships, but COME ON!!!
I think in hindsight the older ships; NX, TOS Connie, etc. should have been added as permanent holo-projectors, rather than regular flyable ships.

Ambassador class I think should be added as a skin for the T3 Excelsior, seeing as most people only want the Ambassador in game for aesthetic and Enterprise continuity.

They should reopen the polls again, get numbers on what ships people what to see the most. This time though get more people involved by advertising the polls on the the homepage and in the launcher.

I dont think anyone(well most people anyway) are asking for a set date, just an estimate. A year, for Q's sake. There is a difference between being cautious and not wanting to set deadlines you cant meet and not even being willing to give a projection. I mean, we're talking about 1/2 of the game's factions here, and the problem that must be solved before any future factions can be added. Its a pretty significant issue.

I thought I had a valid question about the imbalance between escorts and the other ship types in STFs, wish it hadn't been ignored

I doubt they even working on them. Which is likely why they did not answer any of the KDF questions.

Heck I did not even ask for any date. I just ask what the future plans for KDF was. Listing areas I like to see improvement.

I get the feeling the KDF is the Third rail of STO

It sounds like playable Romulans and Cardassians are coming to a grab bag near you. It also looks like the Jem'Hadar boff we were thinking would be the final reward for the current FEs might also include a playable Jem'Hadar captain.
