I did make all the system map planets, however there were last minute changes and someone else was assigned this task =)

I will look into this. Thanks!!

Yeah, that map is empty of all backgrounds, so no planets, no stars, just black as far as I could tell.

A better question might be, what didn't have a dilithium tax appended to it? (and yes stf gear now costs $$)

It's "The Magnetic Void" from Battlestar Galactica.
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

Clearly Portal 63 took a fancy to that system and ran off with all the planets, as it's empty besides the orbital installations.

I agree. On that subject:

Captain: "But... "we're in the Gamma Orionis Sector Block..."
Helmsman: "Course plotted to avoid transwarp gate."
Captain: "But this trip will take CENTURIES!"
Helmsman. "Yep! I'm gonna sing the doom song now! Doom do-doom-doom dooooom..."

*7,000 years later, arriving at Earth, only the Helmsman remains alive, and his doom song echoes through the halls of the ship.*

I have to agree from what I've seen overall. I have in fact been trying NOT to try everything out so I still have something to do when S7 hits Holodeck proper.

I am still concerned with the dil sinks, and very concerned with the implications of the changes to DOffing (and the impact it will have on starbases, embassies and reputation); however, in terms of basic content I am liking what I see.

While the planet does look very nice (although more of a Neverwinter cut and paste) I'm not really a fan of what I'm seeing so far.

The reputation system, while a welcome change from the random drops, is just another grind on top of a game that has descended into one long grind. It's basically just another mini starbase at the end of the day.

It is nice to have a large map to play with but there is so little to do there beyond run pointless mini-games often set against timers. To be honest I can't really ever see myself wanting to go there. Defera as a setting is ten times better in my opinion and beats the heck out of spraying insect swarms or leading baby squids to their mother for little in return. It lacks substance and innovation to me and just feels big for the sake of being big and devoid of any real meat content.

It feels stagnant to be honest and while it's not a game breaker for me other than the few added stf missions and the omega rep system I really can't see myself going out of my way to play any of it.

I do understand that it is just a stepping stone to future development but it's not really adding that much to the game right now as a sector.

I'd much rather have seen some decent episode content and more stfs added to the game rather than another dilithium sink.
