I'm very disillusioned that Goatshark dodged any detail on how tech-sharing alliances will be justified. Particularly from the UFP perspective.

I specificaly want to understand the rationale that allows the Federation reconcile Prime Directive violations, namely,
  • Providing knowledge of technologies or science (TOS: "A Private Little War"; VOY: "Caretaker")
  • Taking actions to generally affect a society's overall development (TNG: "Who Watches The Watchers")
  • Taking actions which support one faction within a society over another (TOS: "The Omega Glory"; TNG: "Too Short a Season")
  • Helping a society escape the negative consequences of its own actions (VOY: "Time and Again", "Thirty Days")
  • Subverting or avoiding the application of a society's laws (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold"; TNG: "Justice")
  • Interfering in the internal affairs of a society (TNG: "Symbiosis", "Reunion", "Redemption", "Redemption II", "The Price"; DS9: "The Circle", "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges"; VOY: "Thirty Days")

There will be rage, but you know what? I like it. I think it makes sense in the context of STO - I'll hold back final judgement until I've finished leveling up my first Romulan but I'm hopeful and looking forward to the next Dev Blog!

These days, adventure finds us.

So some serious "stuff" is gonna go down, and we're gonna be thrown right smack into it.

Oh, I like. You aren't starting with the Republic, or the RSE. You're in your own corner of the universe... I really do like it. Wish this first post had more... but maybe it'll actually become a weekly thing and we'll get more information. ^_^

Love the neglected Bird-of-Prey nacelle in the background of the colony pic. Maybe this even becomes our first ship?

Like Greed, Nerdrage is eternal.

So Sela WAS rescued by the Iconians, and Hakeev was following what she wanted him to do? Hunh... ok then.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
