My only thought is, will bases be capturable and destroyable. As if a fleet can invade another's base to take it over so the fleet has 2 bases and more then its gona be dull. Also defend the base missions which the article touches on. Well if the base isnt in real danger of being blown up then whats the point. If you lose the mission does all that happen say you failed the mission but still have the base i mean thats stupid. Bases need real value tied to them imo if you put all that effort in then they must be worth something to those that build them and so they need to be able to lose them or they blow up otherwise they lose alot of value as once there built then u dont have to worry about them.
They better be in persistent states i.e anyone can fly up to them and either attack or comm them etc if there instant states then this will fail big time. Nobody wants a base without it being involved in the whole game where anything can happen.
But the pics show the stations and they do look nice well the big one with the framework exposed like it really is being worked on looks cool i do hope that is visable alot in different stages of building and see workabees and ships building the station of better yet get players do manually build it with workerbees
Also i hope the season 6 launch includes ALL of the things starbases and fleets need not just a start of the feature and it develops over season 6 into 7. They have had 6 months to work on season 6 since f2p came out. As we have seen in the past that seasons seem to say well have this and that but then when there out they say well we got this done and thats there but for the rest ull have to wait as it rolls out over the season which sorry but is balls.
I want to see klingon bases been shown as i have a feeling that klingon faction will not get as much as feds will maybe they will get one base and no tiers which i really hope they dont do that otherwise its gona pee us klingon players right off. Equal attention or dont bother.
Bare in mind also that star trek is in a state of war and yes eve has features like this and so what every game copies other games so why not just do what others do. It would bring alot of fun and teamwork to the game.
Such an epic article, just when STOked went all doom and gloom to, no offence to Jupiter broadcasting but what was said in episode 124 was just so wrong.
The design is beautiful, it's just a real shame that we haven't got a peek at the Klingon Fleet Starbases, always left out of big articles like this which makes me sad.
I am however loving the fact that FS will be available in tiers from one to five, visibly showing a big difference between each, both in the starbase construction and the surrounding environment, that's amazing!
All that's comes next is for the details of the design mechanics to be released, and that's been sounding more and more similar to the ideas in the "Fleet Starbase Summary Concept Beta" thread. I want to know so badly if I've helped at all in any way influence the design.

Come on keep it to the facts of the article, twisting words is bad...
