The one thing all the data mining in the world can't quantify....and that is fun.My question to all of you is....are you still having fun playing STO? On a scale of 1 to 10,with 10 being the most fun and 1 being purgatory.....
Season 6 was kinda ok, but I kept feeling the dread that was going around for season 7. I think all that doom tarnished my view and all. They did seem to try to fix things, but didn't aim high enough to see the real problems, the Mute System is a major one that skips across their screen and they just are " Meh! " about it. Haven't been muted yet, maybe because I don't talk.
But season 7, has me with severe mixed emotions. I'm happy with something new to aim for like the Rep System and new accolades to do. But I'm also finding myself angry, frustrated at Cryptic/PW attitude about the " She'll be right! " approach to the bugs as they have in every season. To me it's just getting worse.
I seriously nearly quit season 7 twice, but keep remembering that I did get a LTS under Atari and it's under PW now, so I aim to get my moneys worth from whoever owns it.
If I had to do a number :
Season 6 - A 5. It was kinda fun, but needed more. I just bummed around the galaxy really.
Season 7 - A 3. Cryptic's attitude needs to buck up, and when they say some players are rude, I think they should take a good look on how they act and then rephrase that. They have broken and forgotten so many promises that I no longer believe anything they say. I dare say lied as well. What is a broken promise, but a lie in disguise.
I play because I have a LTS, if I didn't I would of left season 6 behind. And no, I'm still not spending money. I did under Atari twice, but never under PW, and I have no future plans to do so.

I am currently unsupervised, anyone who knows me will tell you that this will most likely lead to trouble. =3
Any EC's or Dilthuim left unattended for at least 0.1 seconds shall be nicked by me and never seen again.
Season 6 : 8/10 - Fleet (6 members) progress was slow, but Nukara was enjoyable.
Season 7: 8/10 - Dilithium, is easier to earn now for fleetlings who arent level 50, dilthium is now rewarded for more entertaining content IMO, because doing Gorn minefield with buddies is a darn sight funner than those exploration missions. Also, new romulus is fantastic. Reputation is meh, but i kinda like it more than random drops. Dilithium seriously needs to be lowered though, 20,500 is not on for a XI beam array.
One thing i have done less since s7 hit, is visit the forums. Now 80% of posts are complaining/bashing cryptic, or moaning "ermahgerd grindfest 420 bwaa i want everything now", because it's only a grind if you make it a grind. I don't "Grind" infected space, because i enjoy it. They can be unpredictable, do you get shoved in with a 4man escort premade and basically sit back and watch whilst you do no damage compared to them, or do you get shoved in with 2 rainbow star cruisers and have to work?
