We have been in 2409 for 3 years now. idk what has to been done to move up to 2410 or 2411, but i was thinking if moving up a year was possible. For the anniversery event, make a video on all that you guys at PWE, Cryptic, and even Atari(when they were here) have accomplished this 3 years(or one year if moving up to 2410, so to speak).
I personally think this game has come a long way in the past 3 years(im sure i forgot some of the great achievements), and i would like to see a video on those accomplishments this game has made.
Many people have complained about things in this game(im guilty too, i know), but i think over all this is a great game, and im happy i came across it almost 2 years ago.
Also with going up to 2410(again if possible), make a special map to go too, that has pictures of awards this game has won and some of the new ships and items that have been made.
Thank you all a Cryptic and PWE, this game is great
It should certainly be 2410 by now, for two reasons:
- it's absurd to think that all this stuff is happening within twelve months
- the in-game chronology establishes that "the 2800" (which introduces the Enterprise-F) happened in late 2409, and the Enterprise-F was later seen celebrating First Contact day (which takes place in April).
"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured ... the first thought forbidden ... the first freedom denied ... chains us all irrevocably."
If anyone thinks they can go from Ensign to Vice Admiral in a couple of weeks, then they are sorely mistaken. Ensign and Lieutenant are probably in 2409, but the other ranks are later. Vice Admiral might be 2419 or 2429.
Every episode of The Simpsons is a single day in a calendar year, which explains why no one ever ages or changes their clothes, but perhaps not why the family suddenly has a flatscreen television. Or so goes my own, only-vaguely-analogous-to-STO theory.
In the context of the Klingon-Federation War, I'd prefer to think of it as another brief flare-up brought upon by outside forces just like the last war was. It would then make more sense to have it take place in a single year while the larger war covers multiple years. STO's story is already taking a lot of cues from DS9.
Unfortunately, the nature of MMOs means that moving ahead in the timeline is hard to do since all that older content is still there and accessible, and new to new players. An offline, single-player Star Trek RPG* wouldn't have that problem since it would be telling a more linear story. I never played WoW, but isn't Cataclysm what it took to accomplish similar goals? It was pretty divisive there from what I understand. Wouldn't be any less so here.
* someone go make that right now, I would love to see it.
