In this brand-new edition of Ask Cryptic, the STO Team delivers answers to player submitted questions.

These questions were asked last Thursday and Friday (4/18 and 4/19) in this thread, as well as in our French and German forums. For this month, they were answered by various members of the STO team.

As always, thanks for this.

Any chance we can get a more solid answer on PvP, though? We've received the same "on the radar" answer since May of 2010...
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?

That was decidedly unenlightening.

Q: (kirimuffin) Will Romulans have access to their allies' C-Store ships and consoles? When a Romulan character opens a console reward pack from a lockbox, what (if anything) will she get?

STO Team: As revealed in a recent blog, there has been a change in which allied ships members of the Romulan Republic can command. Romulans will have access to Tier 4 and lower C-Store ships and consoles from those ships, but will not be able to command Tier 5 (Rear Admiral, Vice Admiral, Brigadier General, or Lieutenant General) ships.
If we cannot access the Tier 5 ships from our allies' shipyard, why bother with having the players choose an ally? According to one of the previous posts, the original reason you are forced to make an alliance is for endgame content. As a result of this one particular change, the main reason for the alliance is now irrelevant.

Can someone explain why this has changed?

It?s delightful that Sela congratulates us when we reach a new rank, that we gained by obliterating her minions, ships and plans !

Q: (syberghost) Will there be any Romulan related special goodies for Lifetime subs?

STO Team: We do have a Dev Blog planned that will reveal our Lifetime Subscriber/ Veteran/ Gold Member rewards. These are almost finalized, so plan on seeing the blog about them in the very near future (as soon as early next week).

Q: (westx211) Will there be playable liberated Borg Romulans for Lifetime Subscribers?

STO Team: Yes! More details will be provided in our upcoming blog about Lifetime Subscriber/ Veteran/ Gold Member rewards.
