Well, if you read the article - at bthe bottom, there's a STO Milstone Graphic listing all the Star Trek actors who've done voicework for STO - and it lists Denise Crosby as voicing BOTH Tasha Yar and Sela (It could be Sela is not in the anniversary mission; but they probably have something with the character in the May 2013 update - or both characters could be in the anniversary mission.)

And (assuming they stay on schedule, and everything works, you'll be able to find out in a little under 24 hours.)

Also, I have to say - kudos to the Cryptic/PWE marketing dept. on this one - the way you guys are doing coordinated teases and building up anticipation for all this is nice. (It's a far cry from how the Cryptic marketing folks used to handle this stuff) -- hope everything goes off glitch free (that would be a nice change of pace too )

I doubt it will get much because its free, but I'll be putting my T5 Ambassador on the exchange after the anniversary event because none of my captains even care to take her for a spin around the block.
I doubt it'll be anything but 'Bound to Character', as it is a Freebie.

it's definitely based around romulans. the text before the mouseover is romulan.

whether it's the introduction of a romulan faction or just a series of romulan based episodes, no one really knows yet. don't jump the gun saying that a romulan faction is coming.

Meaning, well march Beneath Them. I'm not sure what else it could mean.
O_o

#1 its MAY, it says so in the URL already...
#2 ...trek knowledge fail bro


http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Time_of_Awakening

"The change was brought on by a Vulcan named Surak, who preached a philosophy of using logic to control emotions, as well as total pacifism. He was effective in spreading his teaching across Vulcan, though he encountered heavy resistance from many Vulcans, especially "those who marched beneath the raptor's wings", even starting a nuclear war. Although Surak died of radiation sickness at Mount Seleya shortly before the last battle against these factions, his writings were preserved in the Kir'Shara. "

tl'dr: "march beneath the raptor's wings" = Romulan Slogan

Glad Tasha is back, but I feel the video spoiled me.

Needs a spoiler alert.



As for those stats on that page...........I'm calling shenanigans.

2 Million Players? Can easily bet that the majority of that number were Goldfarmer Advertisement Bots with another majority being Player Mule Accounts.

16,500 Fleets? I'm assuming that number counting the number of Fleets created since STO's launch.

Something about the StarFleet Engineers experimenting with new designs in anticipation of the Galaxy Class.
I think he means the STO Ambassador's Nacelles are larger than the Ambassador Studio Model. And I have to agree, looks larger than it should be.

Will need to see a side view to compare it.

The rom faction is already here, it's just cloaked.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.

Pretty sure it's going to be bound

Even w/o it being Sela, whoever emerges to the leadership of the Romulan Empire, New Romulus is not going sit well with them. The Federation and Klingon's involvement with the new colony is all but an official recognition of New Romulus as a new seat of power.
