Let's not overstate the issue. Cut scenes are well and good for players that enjoy them. I avoid the missions that don't allow me to skip them. I never play mmos with sound so they're just a minute or two of twiddling my thumbs. Not that bad, but fairly annoying when repeated with a few alts.
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.
So I finally get to New Romulus in the Live server and I have to sit through 5 minutes of blah blah?
I don't remember it being this long on Tribble?
Kudos to Voice Talent, but can we ESC out of blah blahs please?
It's as bad as SWTOR.
Whining about more voice acting and storyline? I mean no offense by this, but if you don't want storyline, what's the point of playing a trek game? Might as well go play some other generic shoot-em-up online rpg if you don't care for context or storyline. We need some background so that we understand what's going on, and if you don't get that, there's no meaning behind what we're playing. However, I do agree that there should be a cutscence skip option for players who have played through it more than once. That's a different issue, though.
