Okay, repasting my part 1 review in here! Come one and all and give it a play!
The Borg interior was extremely well done, must have spent a lot of time setting it all up but it gave just the right feel that the whole place was falling apart. Oh, and was one of those Borg dancing? There were a lot of really nice features - was that a decontamination prop in there? Nice usage of it! Space maps were also quite nice though I find the DS9 map and the Bridge map at the end were a bit wasted. They could have been done with pop-ups rather than an entire map to visit. - Oh and I love the use of the fire sinders as tiny asteroids (that was what they were right?)
-Tech: A lot of good use of triggers etc. for explosions and progression. For first one it's a good job.
Nice level of combat on the interior, I find Borg irritating when you face too many but it was just right for a damaged cube. In space, seem just right at first, though I was expecting more of a fight from the second wave - bit too easy at that point? Though maybe fine for part 1 - it's usually good to keep combat basic early on and build up so you're probably right on this.
Premise is solid. In terms of "giving too much away", I think what you have to do is give away more teasers. If you give too little there is not enough of a mystery to care about and I could have done with a little more. Yes there is a Romulan on board, but to be honest, he could be from anywhere. A recently captured scout ship or something. As mark says above, some mystery could be reiterated in an overview at the end to remind you of questions that need to be answered.
-Choice & Side Stories: So far, none. Again, part 1 but later would be good to have more choice in responses (esp. as a Vulcan) and just to generally give you an "illusion of choice" as they said in the podcast.
"Is It Trek"
I'm going to start adding this to my reviews as a topic (not as a good vs bad thing, something can be very funny yet un-Trek, it is a category thing so this isn't part of my "rating"). Trek in terms of values, feel & diversity etc. Differs of course between Fed/KDF/Rom. For your mission, not many value conundrums at this stage, but you did rescue the Romulan and there was nothing anti-Trek - feel could be improved in later parts. Diversity - very few NPCs (3 in total?) but thus far all white human males.
And my notes on part 2 so far;
1) Maybe keep the mission giver as a pop-up and go direct to Vulcan rather than via random person on ESD?
2) Having a group patrolling on a bridge... looks a little.... weird....
3) The name "Lib3ral"???
4) More background behind characters when you're setting off - in the ready room - would be welcome. Helps you care about their fate to hear a little of where they came from.
5) How dare that Vulcan order me to leave the system! I'm a Starfleet Admiral dammit! Screw you cowardly Vulcan man, I want to continue my investigation and you're just going to have to stick it.
@isthisscience: Thank you for reposting your review! I've already answered you but will post it a.s.a.p. inside this thread.
For everyone who already did my mission and/or wanting to, i would ask you to be as much of a critic as possible! As language is my weak spot i would ask all of you to give me as much input as possible of any typo's or grammer mistakes i might have made.
If there is anything that bugs you (storywise, NPC's, placements, etc) and you might have an suggestion or improvement, please please please share .
