# 1 Awesome episode!!

Just went through the new episode. It's awesome. Almost every character had a great voice over, really charmed up the atmosphere. Wish there was a voice over for every mission!!

Only the parts where you had to circumvent the security controls could have involved some mini-games instead of linear button klicking. But it's still better than pure guesswork.

But the Ambassador class surely is boring for a VA.

This was one of, if not THE, most 'Trek' feeling mission I have played in STO. I loved it, and have enjoyed playing it on both my Federation and Klingon characters. The voice overs were excellently done, and seeing my BOFFs in there as well was a very nice touch.

Honestly I've felt a lot of the past voice over work was pretty poor. But they seem to have stepped it up a bit in this new mission, which is a good sign.

I have to agree with the OP. One of the best missions. You pulled off the sense of urgency very well, I kept looking over my shoulder most of the time as those NPC's took their merry old time.

Moreover the story fit perfectly into TNG: Yesterday's Enterprise. I wasn't sure how they were going to pull off Yar still alive in that old timeline but it was done very well and I really enjoyed it. I am really going to hate seeing it disappear.

On another note, I learned from a fleetmate I missed an accolade. Is this mission repeatable?

Mission is repeatable, and will NOT be going away. At the end of the event, it will just stop giving out the T5 ship reward.

That's cool, I'll be looking forward to it. The problem with voice overs is they have to pay talent for it so I wouldn't expect to see too much of it any time soon. It's too bad thing were so laggy today, might it a little harder to enjoy things, but this mission was very well done.

I rarely take the time to logon to the forums, but I felt obligated to thank you all for this awesome episode Featured episodes are hands-down, my favorite content in this game, and I wasn't expecting anything nearly as awesome as what you delivered here.

As others have stated, the voice talent was terrific, the story was very "Trek", and the new gameplay elements, such as crawling through the maintenance shafts with nothing but a hand-drawn map was nothing short of awesome. It was the perfect length for an episode as well, if you take the time to interact with everyone around.

Thumbs up... I'll proudly be showing this to some of my non-STO playing friends to win them over I can't wait for missions of this same caliber in Season 8.

Thank you again!

Want to add my voice to the parade of appreciation for this 3yrs anniversary episode.

What I enjoyed most was simply looking around. For the first time in a long time, I didnt just run through the environment. It wasnt because this ep is brand new that I took time to soak it in ... it was because the map and visuals were excellently done. Bravo!

My only selfish ask now is how can these tool be pushed more quickly to the Foundry? I think Cryptic should hold back graphical surprises for when they release new eps, but once their out it would be cool to see what the community would do with them? Inside of a Tholian base? New twist on a mining operation? The potential for this community to use these new toy to give back really excited my hopes for the longevity of STO.

I digress ...

Thanks Cryptic and all involved for this and all you do. Congratz and Happy 3yrs!

I was pretty impressed by the quality and creativity in this mission. I don't know how you did it Cryptic, but you even got a different character on my account to be in the mission as well. Great job

There were so many epic moments in this mission I almost lost my voice from cheering so much. Commanding the Enterprise-C was awesome, and that Wells-class ship one-shotting a Tarantula was so unexpected and so epic I almost cried.

If future missions are that great, the future looks bright for STO.

Only question: does my character remember the events of the mission, or were his memories of the new timeline wiped clean by the 29th century Starfleet? It seemed kind of ambiguous.
Please fix the Foundry lag!
