Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)
I certainly understand their reasoning. The exploration clusters were hastily written bare bones systems that were never fleshed out and the original creators have left Cryptic long ago. Nobody understands how it worked nor have the time or inclination to try and add on to a highly "cryptic" technical system. So its natural to scrap the whole exploration cluster.
I do hope they have plans to replace it with a better form of exploration.
