It's about the worst Enterprise captain in history, even beating out Archer.

The Gale is nothing. It's just the title to the story. It involves the Enterprise trying to contact Remans on a planet, but things go awry.

Unspecific post is Unspecific.

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

The one from Ferris Bueller?
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.

Never liked Shon, but I do like that the Captain is not Human for once. If they were going to make an Andorian captain of the Enterprise, They should have made Thelin of the USS Kirk. If he was worthy of commanding a ship named after the Captain who made the Enterprise famous, than he could command the Enterprise. plus he was already established, and they could have done more with Miral Paris.

Agree. Shon sucks and I can't stand him. It would have also put Miral Paris on the Enterprise, which I would have liked. This Enterprise crew just.. can't stand any of them. I remember the First Contact Day event, talking to all of them. They were all completely unlikeable and wooden.

Akin to the reviews of the Season 1 TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT crews then? The difference is they had time to grow and develop. We got to see that character growth.

The fact is these ent-f characters have been developed quite a lot -outside- of the game now through literary works in this magazine. A medium that just isn't available to all the players of this game. I think the opinions of people who have made their mind up about Shon et al. from the Featured Episode and the First contact event are a little skewed - through no fault of their own. Cryptic isn't doing enough to weave the Enterprise F and it's crew into the game, and our personal story progression. Although, I hear they may pop up in Season 7 and 8, so hopefully that will start to remedy this issue.

origcaptainquack - I would suggest taking a wander to your local magazine retailer (who stocks national magazines, i.e. maybe not your local newsagents) and read the story there.
