The Voth have developed a unique Immunity Matrix, which phases a volume of space around their ships to provide them with total immunity to damage from that direction.
Trying to bring more utility to Subspace Jump in PVE? Not bad.

Who knows, the heavy anti-energy weapon focus might just be the catalyst needed to get a solution to the torpedo problem.

Very cool. Sounds like we won't be able to just sit still and blast away at them like we can at pretty much every other enemy. I like that.

While listening to the podcast, Geko states one Voth ship is so large that an Oddy can fly inside of the trenches on the Voth ship.
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.

The dreadnought looks like a wraith cruiser from stargate atlantis

And let the arguments as to which pointy looking ships do or don't look like other pointy looking ships begin...
