I found this more and more illogical the deeper I got in to this arc. How come we don't get the federation officers that we save as DOff prisoners? At least that would make sense why we're helping them when we're aligned to the KDF.

# 112 Combat Pet Concerns
05-20-2013, 03:08 AM
I was a bit too liberal with pressing Skip, so I couldn't play the mission where you get the combat pet Targ to try it out.

But a couple of my concerns are this:

Firstly, why a Targ?
Yes, it's an iconic Klingon animal, but I'd much rather have a Gorn Saur.
Dinosaur or Pig, which would you rather have?

Secondly, is it like a Horta?
Use it for 60seconds and then it's gone?
Or can you keep resummoning it when it dies?
And does it stay out permanently or only for the aforementioned 60seconds?

I'm wishing they'd use the Champions Online combat pet mechanic, regardless of the pet being invoked (Horta, Targ, Combat Drone, etc).
In CO, a Combat Pet remains active until Dismissed or it gets killed.
And when either of those events occurs, you can instantly summon replacements.

Despite picking up and using a new ship at lvl 11-12. The NPC dialogue still refers to my first inactive ship as the ship that is needed to a new mission.

Combat targ? If you're talking about the trip to the ice prison (can't remember if it's Rura Penthe or Rura Pentha, so nyeh), when I did it a while back, you got a jackal mastiff. I mean, obviously, they could've changed it, but the jackal mastiff was kind of 'important' to the mission. You could have one track Drake, and, ostensibly, it's the one that comes with you as a mission reward. A Saur just wouldn't be something that would survive on that ice world.

I used it in First City as a test, and it's kind of like security escort. Doesn't stick around long outside of a fight, and isn't a single use item.

Aw darn it.

Sounds like it's not really useful anyway, not if it's just like a security escort or something.


Still, they could have made another mission where you get a Gorn Saur, considering how many missions they just added.

So far I have been very impressed with the Romulan and Klingon storylines! Having set bridge officers in the Romulan storyline is an interesting idea and seems pretty cool. Also having Denise Crosby doing Sela's voice is incredible! You should have more actors reprise their roles in the future. I look forward to playing both Romulan and Klingon characters when the update hits the Holodeck server. Kudos everybody! Well done!!!
