Isn't the whole theme of the tholian thing supposed to be temporal related? Thus far I've only seen the Wells show up to fight Tholians.. never anywhere else?
It only shows up to fight Tholians. Anything else, and you'll get the appropriate flagship for your faction. You apparently get a Korath class timeship if you're KDF.
Which makes sense, if the Tholians are messing with time and space portals. Why wouldn't 29th century Starfleet be taking an interest?
Formerly GT-01. Runnin' a small lite-RP casual fleet called "The Voyagers"! Message me in-game at either Salen@GT01 or Xavok@GT01 if yer interested. Here's my neat Idea's Thread.
I have been spending all my time in game doing STFs and patrolling around New Romulus and these Wells class ships keep showing up to help me in the patrol missions. What is this? Is it something I'm doing or is this just some new "feature"?
Yeah, the Wells mainly show up during my STF. It almost always does, especially when doing the Fleet Action of the Vault, or the one that you have to rescue Rommie ships.
I noticed the same thing, but only in the Beta Lankal System.
Usually, a Wells class ships appears at the second relic, but isn't targetteable. He attacks Tholian ships, then disappears (he simply fades away, no warp / hologram effect).
Next on the third relic, the ship reappears, but is targetteable. And he keeps helping me huntil I warp out.
I checked closely, and there is no Tyken's Rift (well I don't know if it's one, but it has the same FX) appearing when he pops out, like when Tholian ships summon Mirror Ships (I also noticed they usually summon reinforcements AFTER they die).
On one occasion, I had an Obex type Iconian ship coming from the planet when I finished beaming up the last relic, scanning some anomaly, then warping out when I got closer to him. Had this happen once in twenty times in this system. I'll try to make some screenshots next time (or use the demorecord).
I haven't seen yet both Wells class and Obex ships in other patrol systems in Tau Dewa (besides Enterprise-F in the skirmish missions).
I knew about the Enterprsie before it turned up, but was surprised when fighting Tholians in one of the systems in the New Romulas sector for the patrol daily, something started shooting from off screen. Then turns out a Wells class was flying around shooting at Tholians, and it kept dissapearing and reappearing a short distance away. I thought it was having issues with it's time drive. I'm very happy it did, as Tholians always prove troublesome for my ship on it's own.
A Romulan Strike Team, Missing Farmers and an ancient base on a Klingon Border world. But what connects them? Find out in my First Foundary mission: 'The Jeroan Farmer Escapade'
