And the alterations made to the Bringing Down the House arc. I found it disconcerting that one scene had no voiceovers whatsoever...

I like how it plays out. You're not roaming all over town doing this and that. You've got purpose.

However, I wondered why Alexander called himself "K'mtar", so I had to look that up. And Worf was correct in the Star Trek episode the grown up version of Alexander appeared in... thanks to the alteration of time Worf's assassination was no longer certain. However...


Um... if anything STO isn't considered canon, right?

Nothing that isn't seen on a TV or movie screen can be considered canon in the realm of Star Trek; STO just uses many canon elements to link to the canon Star Trek.

I think that's one of the things left up to the players, since anything in the shows, movies, or books that takes place after this would be dozens, if not hundreds, of years in the future.

So, if you don't want to consider it canon, that's up to you. Personally, I do consider it canon...though I limit canon on the story missions to just one character per faction--given that I have multiple characters for each faction, they can't all canonically go through the story missions in the game.

However, if we operate in STO canon, there's the interesting fact that in the future the Klingons have a Rozhenko-class time shuttle. Even though he actually never made that trip. (Paradox alarm.) If Cryptic wants to be funny they could actually have the K'mtar from TNG return and find his father alive.

STO is not canon. Like every novel, comic book, and other game bearing the name Star Trek, it is its own private sub-universe of Trek. What transpires here has nothing to do with what happens in the canon Trek universes.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

While the future that K'mtar came from is no longer certain (Worf is still alive and present in STO, so whatever happened was prevented), but Alexander still met K'mtar.

Now that the Federation and Empire are at war, having a human name becomes more of a liability to him than it would have been in DS9. Using a Klingon name is a convenience. It preempts the many questions a human name invites. Alexander has perfectly good answers to those questions (Son of Worf, House of Martok, veteran of the Dominion War and presumably several since), but as K'mtar he doesn't have to explain those reasons to pretty much everybody he meets.

I wonder what would happen if K'Mtar met a Klingon who knows of human history and that his human name is the same name used by a famous conquerer....


There's one thing I really like about the tutorial missions... you get to take command the Klingon way (though I think even by Klingon standards the way you took it was pretty unusual).

You're all missing the point here. The point is that the Klingon tutorial,new missions & revamped missions are awesome!
And yes, they are. It truly is much more fun to level a KDF char now.
