I just hope that STO isn't starting down the path CO went with limited time content. It didn't go over very well and sparked some rather nasty threads. Anyways everything looks good except for the limited time thing. Not a fan of taking away substantial content, not counting the fun little seasonal events and the like.
I like the look of the Entity - looks like the remastered TNG version!
I hope there will someday be an option to try to communicate with it. The whole point of its final episode was that communicating with strange new life like the Entity was preferable to destroying it. I guess the Tholians got to it first, but that doesn't mean we can't try, right?
Why can't we just shatter the thing like the revenge-filled scientist did from a console on the Enterprise D?
What is explanation?
Well, that was in part something that it left itself open to. At first they were trying to communicate, then the scientist increased the amplitude of the carrier wave until it shattered it. IF the CE hadn't tried to communicate, that would have been impossible.
