# 1 Starbase Omega
02-27-2013, 02:28 AM
Hello STO Devs and players,

I would like to propose the limited replacement of Task Force Omega. I say limited as the two fleets would remain on the map but all functions and contacts would be moved to Starbase Omega. Yes, that is the original ESD from the launch of the game. Place it at the location of TFO and have the two fleets orbiting it. Place the Omega shop in there as well. You would still need to unlock the store items via the reputation system but, would need to go to the shop to purchase it (I leave it to the Devs to work out the specifics). Lets get some functionality back to the maps that have been slowly drying up like a lake in a Texas drought. Any thoughts on this?

Hmm. I like the idea. And yes, I also agree with the fact that Reputation kind of removes the fun of going from place to place.

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

Not a bad idea. Always thought that the original ESD they had could have been used for various other Deep Space stations. That is, if they ever added in more sector blocks around the "perimeter" of Federation Space, Deep Space 7 would be a good contender if upcoming content is focusing on the Romulans.

I think it would be cool to have another shared faction space dock. The design is amazing, so I really would love to see it in the game again, but at the same time I really like having shops available everywhere, so maybe they could just make it another place to get Omega stuff.
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.

While the old ESD still looks pretty impressive,

I think it would work better as a station that belongs to none of the current factions.

A somewhat different colour scheme and it could easily work as for example a Xindi space station.

In particular the Xindi Reptilians come to mind since their ships have curved struts

How much colour can make a station look alien can be seen with the station that seems to have inspired the old ESD, the Goa'uld Hasara Space Station:

I like that idea.

I always thought that the old Spacedock was a nice looking Starbase, but just not right one for earth orbit.
Placing that Starbase to Battlegroup Omega is a good idea IMo.

I love this idea.

Something with specialist stores where you can trade surplus BNPs or Omega marks for vanity items would be amazing. Say things like Omega force arm patches for standard uniforms or variant little items of clothing such as belts or gloves or even pets.

Although it was frustrating there was always a wonderful "I've got a golden ticket" moment when you rushed to the store to hand in your shiny new proto-tech counters that the new reputations seems to have taken from the game for me.

A mixed faction Star base Omega would be amazing.

I am 100% in favor of bringing the old ESD model back to the game!

I miss the feeling when you need to fly trough three sectors to get into your destination. Reputation starbases would be just right to fill this place. Starbase Omega in Gamma Orionis and Fleet Embasy on New Romulus. Embasy is though a problem to players who do not want to be in a fleet. Byt I like the idea! Devs, ad this!
