I absolutely hate this, It's all ground combat, seems to be almost no space battles. Is there a whole quest chain that is nothing but space combat? that would be awesome, ground combat in STO is really not something I could ever see myself enjoying. I'd be the captain that would let my 1st officer do all the away missions. the ships my baby, i'll be damned if I'm gonna leaver her if you know what I mean
There's some good space combat in "The Undying", but it is rather short.
The reason there's so much ground action is that they want people to spend more time on Nimbus III, which was probably expensive to make. I don't think the nature of the missions needed an adventure zone, though.
"It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid."
Hehe.... I loved it. But I love ground comabt in STO sooo.... I had a lot of fun wandering around and massacring everything I saw. It's like.... Oh look, enemies! I wonder what mission they're part of? Enh... who cares? I'm gonna kill them for the fun of it! Hacking graboids apart with a sword is fun! It's easier with a repeating pistol though.
