Its been stated more than once that more blogs are coming with a lot more information. This may be the single most anticipated piece of content with the new patch and...i'm disappointed.

I was hoping for a major league STF simular to the original Star Trek Movie where the Enterprise flys into V'ger.

Ground STF's are insanely difficult. With a timegate that requires an almost unfathomable amount of DPS. I've got dominion set gear and i honestly dont think its enough how quickly i die in there. I hope this is a more balanced game on normal/elite because if its like the previous ground. Its not going to be played much and a lot are going to be disappointed.

Ground STF's arent played as much because of what it takes to get the job done. Its a lot harder than space in terms of equipment and skillpoints spent. Have fun...i guess i wont be taking part in this.

Oddly, it seems that the way to survive in Ground STFs is to do space STFs until you can get Mk XI Ground sets then do Ground STFs.

As for me, if it's fun, the rewards are good, and the changes/additions to STF rewards are nice (with the whole reputation thing...) then eh, I'll do it a few times.

But I'm looking forward to the adventure zone, I've wanted an excuse to bring a boff with me somewhere for months.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Nice, one night when I have enough time to try it. I would love to tangle with the Borg Queen. As it being ground. I love it along with space action. Looking forward to this and other features for Season 7.

At the risk of being opportunistic, I'd really like to invite some of the folks in this thread to play my Foundry mission. If you're wanting some into the hive-style space action, check it out.

You might have to turn down some settings. But, if you're after intense space combat on a Borg-like version of the Vault, there it is.

It might nicely complement this stf.

So, yeah, please see sig if you're angry that this stf is ground-only.

Don't use a minigun, then you won't have to remodulate every 2 seconds. If you are using the Omega-Set, don't use the secondary firemode first...

The problem is you're using the Dominion set. Which is most useful against Dominion forces and only marginally useful against anything else. The ground STF's (even the Elite versions) for the most part are pretty easy. From my own experience since beta, the ground portions aren't played as much not because they're difficult. But because they're not space.

But Brandon is right in that "Into the Hive" refers to the ground portion of the STF. The space portion will probably have its own name.

It is a face off against the Borg Queen diamond as well as some other challenges at one of the unimatrix complexes. It is pretty awesome.
