Enjoyed the video, and the Ambassador looks great - looking forward to it!

Great job guys!

It is amazing how I am seeing this interpreted as players or accounts. The fact is Stahl said 2 Million Captains. I highly doubt that the number is a representation of the number of accounts /players. Just taking the statement as is, that means the number of player characters with no qualification of the time-frame. So yes, I would believe that there have been 2 million characters created in the game since it's launch.

Now active players/accounts is a completely different ball game and it depends on what you define as "active". Last 6 months, 3 months, month, or week? Just from my experiences in game, scanning zones, etc... I would venture to guess that the number of active monthly players is hovering around 40-50K. That is being generous, try getting a Klingon 20 man Fleet Action to pop!

If they make a Romulan faction I will be so happy. I don't even mind if it's half-finished like the kDF faction (which I play all the time). It's unlikely, but maybe they are so confident that Season 8 will bring enough KDF content that it will be considered finished enough.

About damn time too.
Iconian? A label created by the Dewans to give voice to their destruction.
In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.
We simply... are.

It's too early for a Romulan Faction. We all know how long it takes Cryptic to push major content & there have been no hints that this was already underway.

My thought is that considering Denise Crosby has been billed as Yar AND Sela this is going to be the new FE Series that has been brought up previously for 2013.

It will probably involve the return of Sela after her "abduction" by the Iconians. My guess is that we will get a 5 story arc that involves her Romulan faction being backed by the Iconian, or even Tholians, and trying to conquer New Romulus.

Also, that's a new Romulan symbol on the page... and unseen faction perhaps?

If a Romulan faction is introduced I would gamble that it would be a primarily rep based faction and not level conventionally like we do now. I sense a new mechanic incoming.

video looks awsome! great action with the new ships! really looking forward to both, especially the kdf one actually. great views of the ambasidor, its texturing is spot on, looks like it has great detail, except for lacking torp bays and escape pods under the saucer.


i do have a slight concern though, at 2:31 in the vid the ambassador is firing beams from in front of the nacelle strut, not from the strut. its not gonna have that problem in game right?


also im not sure what else march under the raptors wing could mean other then play as a romulan. i just hope its not play an episode and have your new romulan captain join ether fedration of klingons

So Dan Stahl has said that the next major expansion is going to be big, too big to be called a season.

He's also said 'season 8' is going to be big for the Klingons.

Today we get the biggest cloak tease ever...


Could 'Season 8' be as big as he claims? Could it bring closure to the Klingons and Open up a new Romulan faction?

I wouldn't get your hopes up for Season 8 being the "Big Klingon update", or the "Klingon Season" we've heard this twice before already... while those two instances did bring a small amount of KDF-exclusive content -they were mostly hype.

buuuut it would be awesome to finally get some more parity between the Red & Blue.

They were also done with a much smaller number of employees...

Not saying yer completely wrong, this could be hype also... but there's always hope.
