I thought 21st or did they change it? 19th is the new film isn't it?
In my part of the U.S. it's the 16th. I'm not sure where most of you folks live, though.

Anyhoo, I'm looking forward to the new Romulan stuff. Very excited!

Right now I'm conflicted. I'm flying an escort (so I can do more PvP), and while I'm good at the pewpew, flying an escort doesn't feel like flying a starship. Yes, it's the Defiant, and it's got a lot of Trek history, but I prefer flying cruisers. The problem that arises with this is that cruisers don't do much of anything in PvP.

I've geared everything towards this escort, even using up most of my fleet credits and dilithium to outfit the ship with canons and gear to help me do better in PvP, and I am! In STFs I can obliterate enemies without getting much more than a scratch. In PvP I can do shield melting damage in seconds! But it feels like work now, instead of fun, imaginative, Star Trek play. Does that make any sense?
