With the advances in the story line of the Romulan's, are we finaly going to see that playable Romulan faction any time soon? the alpha quadrent feels a bit small with only two playable factions, But thats not to say that you guys havent done a bang up Job with the game so far!

Has the idea/concept of space bound shipyards been discussed? Possibly star system/ non star system based ship yards in which players can fly up to and change between owned star ships without the need to dock or leave the ship?

With the fairly recent Cross Faction raids that went underway during the winter event, has this given any ideas to the dev team for supported raid content, perhaps as a reputation or separate instance?

With the STF stories kinda lost during the split, is their any plans to return the old STFs, at least for a weekend? Perhaps even with updated rewards to reflect the time taken to beat it, such as additional omega marks?

Finally, is it possible to incorporate a similar *optional* space dock walkway on ESD and Qo'noS like the 3 yr anniversary mission. It would be a nice secondary way to get to your ship as apposed to a simple beamout.

Can we expect any short term additions to PvP, like maps?

Can you comment on Escort survivability? These days, it's incredibly easy to make an Escort tank just as well as a Cruiser. Have the Devs noticed this as well? If so, do you plan to make changes to the way defenses are handled, like boosting Cruisers (via innate damage resistance akin to the innate Defense bonus Escorts get) or toning down the effectiveness of Escort tanking?
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

There have been numerous threads regarding the correcting and/or modifying of starship models (most notably the Steamrunner, her impulse engine placement and registry lighting) are there any plans to address these issues and what are the chances of seeing the Steamrunner as a C-Store/Fleet ship (or at least the option for fleet skin as she already has the stats) ?

# 196 Foundry updates and many more?
02-07-2013, 07:03 PM
The Temporal Ambassador episode was a great way to see what happened after the Enterprise C enter the temporal rift. Also, is there any way you guys can get the Tau Dawa Sector Block with the systems and surface playable for the foundry? When can we expect to have new ships and new episodes? I was hoping you guys can bring in very special events such as the Nexus from Star Trek Generations or even as a Duty Officer mission. Also when the Romulans come into play in May, will you guys be bringning back Denise Crosby as Empress Sela. Will there also be another time travel mission where you can bring all 5 captains and their first officers to team up with you and to save the day from certain doom for the Federation? Will there be any other special guest from other Star Trek actors? Will the USS Enterprise from the alternate timeline movie be playable?

Please I would like to know more as soon as you can.

Quite a while back we were told that a playable Romulan faction was in the works however it has not yet hit STO. When can we expect to see a playable Romulan faction enter the game?

Can you please fix the stations on the ships so that we can save the current setup of boffs and abilitys for each ship. Every time i switch ships i haft to redo the stations and abilitys for the ship this is VARY frustrating and time consuming to do.

1: Since you're no longer calling it "Season 8," what IS the May update called? Considering how hyped it's gotten and how big you've made it seem, my vote is Star Trek Online Phase 2 or Star Trek Online: The Next Generation (Yes, really).
2: Will we see any "Remastered" episodes this year? What missions might be on the Remastering Short List?
3:Will we see a bigger variety of melee weapons soon? There are very few different ones, and I'd love to see a few d'k taghs, Kar'takins, and katanas.
4: Considering all of the Di sinks in-game, could we PLEASE have a raise in the Di refining cap (even if it's a ZEN purchase)? 8,000 a day isn't enough, and the Veteran refining DOff mission is both insufficient and too much of a tie-up (an Active Assignment slot AND a DOff for an extra 1,000 after two days? LOLno).
5: How many STO Let's Plays/Podcasts do you actively follow?
6: On the forums, many people post suggestions/ideas for additions to the game, some of them quite wonderful. However, I remember one dev recently posting that the reason some couldn't be used was for intellectual property rights. Since you claim to read the forums thoroughly, is it possible to set up a system to fast-track these intellectual property sign-offs and get some of these ideas in-game?
7: Last month, in your interview at Gamersbook, you dropped the notion that you may be adding Warp Cores as an in-game item. What kind of stats would these cores affect, how many kinds have been considered, and what does this new slot mean for the Ship Status UI?
8: Will we be seeing more of the Temporal Integrity Commission any time soon? If so, will anything they do end up getting me questioned by the Department of Temporal Investigations?
9: If you could put one Star Trek captain (Kirk, Picard, Archer, Janeway, ore The Sisko) in-game, which one would it be, and what might they do?
10: There's quite a bit of content (at least Fed-side) in Cardassian territory, but almost NONE of it deals with the legitimate government. In the future (possibly with the eventual Cardassian reputation), might we become more involved with the Detapa Council? If we do, is it ANY possibility that we might end up seeing Elim Garak in-game? And, if we DO eventually visit Cardassia Prime (other than the True Way mission there), will we see a Dominion War memorial?

You mentioned that the entire character creator is getting an overhaul. What exactly does that entail? Are we getting more options, or is it just a bug/UI fix?

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
