Bortas(qu) doesn't fit through Omega Leonis Transwarp Gate... lololol


anyway... could we have this instead:

pretty please?

*never liked this Space-Stargate in STO*

granted the Borg Gates in Voyager Endgame looked like that

but they had all of this attached to make it *go*

(so, where is the Federation Transwarp HUB anyway?)

imho the whole canon techy perspective of Transwarp Gates in STO is a bit fishy and only there to add some Zone transfer points, instead of being an integral part of the Universe, how many hours did we listen to Technobabble how the Warp Drive functions?
Yet i don't have the slightest idea how the Federation Transwarp *Network* even works.
Well, besides pressing F
(we don't even need to fly through it, there is no epic animation... just a loading screen after pushing a button)

this could be much much much more awesome, visually AND lore-wise .

Wicked funny pics of that Klingon behemoth Zerobang! And that 'Perpetual' Transwarp Conduit is simply awesome! And I wholeheartedly concur with ya on the lack of the transwarp experience having any oomph at all. Might be nice if they preface the instance transition with a cut scene of sorts, not unlike what happens when one warps out of a system, but with a lot more transwarp pizzazz.

well they have shown that they can open the doors on ESD (sliding doors tech) when a ship approaches, and that they can auto-zone based on location when you fly through the doors of ESD.

sooo...
the Perpetual Artwork shows that the gate physically opens and closes, probably a security measure so that nothing can get through from the other end that doesn't have clearance (like a Borg Cube ...lol).

With those 2 things combined a Transwarp gate like in the Artwork would absolutely be do-able by now.

also it is WIDE enough so that multiple ships could enter or warp out from it, without clipping + pushing each other around all the time (which has become a real problem with the increased instance sizes + F2P population bump)... [you can't see DS9 anymore because of all the ships around it ... you constantly get pushed around by spawning ships above Earth, Qo'nos and DS9... sometimes it's so bad that you have to fight your way out of the ship ball before you can move ;P ]

You see tons of ships because people cried they didn't feel like it was an MMO because they saw too few people, so the devs upped the instance population and now you have ships piled on one another.

lol My Kar'fi got stuck in the Transwarp the other day......

I was coming in from Eta and set my auto course to Beta... went to get a drink of water.. come back and stuck in transwarp @.@.. it was worth a few chuckles
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

Really would be cool, especially would like to be able to see a "physical" transition rather than a dialogue window popping up.

1. Hilarious. I can imagine the anger the Klingons in that ship are feeling right now.

2. Is it me, or does the Perpetual Transwarp Conduit look kinda like a Mass Effect Relay?

I agree some specifics about how the transwarp gates work or/and a reskin of them would be cool and most welcomed.
