# 1 No Rocket Boots???
06-28-2013, 01:05 AM
This has been one of the most asked for items. Now there is zone you can fly in there is no rocket boots? The zone looks great but no rocket boots? Maybe next year. Do not take this wrong but no rocket boots? Other then that one thing I give the event thumb up.

Because rocket boots are hard to control.

Floaters are canon, and referred to as being available on Risa, so it makes sense to use them instead of rocket boots. Here is a Memory Alpha link, as minimal as that info is.

+1 for the vid

as much as i'd love me some rocket boots (did get them in city of heroes) the jetpack is already a proven piece of technology that is easy to control.

Those are not rocket boots, those are magic boots.
Otherwise they' would have killed both Kirk and Spock when Spock goes into the horizontal.

Those are major boots cause "technically" they would just drill into the ground.

There are no rockets in Trek altogether lol. Spocks boots are the equivelant to them.

There are rocket boots in game! I thought this was common knowledge. They're sold by the famous Cardassian war-hero-turned-trader Gul Libbel outside Starfleet Academy...

Actually Impulse Drives and Reaction Control Thrusters (actually just about anything in Trek called a "Thruster") are forms of rockets.

Impulse Drives a rockets that use fusion to produce plasma that is ejected though a thrust nozzle for propulsion.
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.
