Bran Flakes: "Even though this is an enemy species"

GRR! I hate those who label Tholians as an enemy species! HOW DARE THEY GENERALIZE MY ENTIRE SPECIES SOLELY ON ONE ENCOUNTER IN A PARALLEL UNIVERSE!

And I thought we were pretty tolerant. We gave the Enterprise the time they requested when they were in our territory. We have ambassadors to the Federation. We stayed out of the Dominion War. We even gave "The Sisko" our own valuable silk! Now we're branded as enemies? I disapprove!
Starfleet certainly didn't like you though, they even had special combat training to deal with in the mid 2300's. But then that was because your species did destroy a Federation starbase in 2353: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Thol...er_aggressions

So, y'know....

Would be nice if the loader screen started defaulting to PWE instead of Cryptic, though, now that we've had to change. Minor annoyance, but still, should be an easy fix...
Mine started defaulting over to the PWE login once I made the change; your screen doesn't?

Interesting; CBS didn't want the Constitution class in the game AT ALL originally, and Cryptic had to talk them into it.

Of course CBS, it's Star Trek online, i mean why have some of the most iconic ships in the franchise in a Star trek game that's main fun focus is Star Trek ships. LOL

Think back to the shows. We see Mirandas and Excelsiors all over the place in TNG, DS9, and VOY; but we never see any Connies. Not once.

Correction, we did see the original Enterprise Constitution class in DS9 and Enterprise. :P

^Actually it was the Defiant constitution class vessel (in the Mirror Universe episode) in "Enterprise", just to be pedantic... but yeah, they avoided putting the Connie in - presumably because it was an iconic 22xx ship, not a 23xx ship, whilst the others aren't iconic and associated with the 23rd century.

Although the remains of a Connie-refit can be seen in the debris field in "The Best of Both Worlds" Part 2 (so there was at least one at the battle of wolf 359)

3.6gig patch on Holodeck (I know the maintenance isn't done yet) so it looks like season 6 is incoming.

Apparently we need a fleet leader on to create our starbase (assign a system etc)?
