You know, if STO had a gameplay style similar to Eve. Starbases would be that much more involved into the game. Given STO's small playerbase and how much area can be used along the borders of federation and klingon space. A Fleet can setup a base in anywhere in their respectively territories. With mining spots and exploration zones nearby to be used. While in a PvP effect, opposite factions can raid and assault starbases inflicting damage, reducing resource collection and design advancement on starships.
Ofcourse, we are stuck with a flight similater with a one button attack (give or take).
Ship equipment should of had more stat involvement, including speed, innertia, effects on structural etc, and improving on these designs could of been done on such starbases, aswell as gathering resources to create more starships. But again that is an impossibility as STO's features are too limited to expand and while I am a startrek fan, and only played eve for a few months a year ago, Eve Trumps STO in so many ways.
iT Would be really nice if we player can vote for Design of FleetStarBases,and evry tier t hae more Dsigns,so not all bases are the same,for Exampl:Tier 1:Type1 , Type2 , Type3. . .like we have for ships. . .

iThink that KDF do not have StarBases (iN ST series).
Under Siege, heh. Wonder if that's how the Devs are feeling.
ROFL... No doubt but uh I would hope that with a title like that... that some major content like playable non time gated content will be coming our way... My working theory is that the raining of lockboxes will keep us at bay as our new main villain that we have to discard at alarming new rates...
I wonder if the tier 1 Klingon on will look like a futuristic Tampon too?? lol
seriously thou I think they're not bad looking, just hope eventually we can tough them up some as far as looks later on. After all this isn't the peace loving, tree hugging hippie Federation it used to be. I see cylindrical storage pods and instantly think click click boom.
I just really hope the system programmers don't totally screw these up and make them Elitist Fleet friendly only.
