Re: Star Trek: Online

^ Is it true that it's possible for Klingons to fight other Klingons of other Houses or such like?

The Klingons being at war with the Federation just feels so... unnecessary to me. Why not make a new big bad enemy that both the Feds and the Klingons can fight?
Here is where the current books actually provided something that could have served perfectly as a pvp-enemy for Klingons and Federation.

The Typhon Pact

It's an alliance between Romulans (one of the two current romulan states), Gorn, Tholians and a race of avians called Kinshasa (really pissed at the Klingons).

If you go back to my first post in this thread, a couple of pages ago, I said...

As an avid reader of Trek novels, I like the direction the novels have taken post-Nemesis (with Destiny and the Typhon Pact) MUCH more than I do this silly idea that the Klingons are once again the Federation's enemies! I think even if I hadn't read the books, I'd still think it was a stupid idea. Considering the history of the Klingon-Federation Alliance throughout TNG, and especially following the Dominion War, I think its a HUGE step backwards to make them enemies yet again. Especially when it means they aren't introducing new, BETTER enemies - or say, making old enemies who we don't know much about (like the Gorn, Tholians and Breen) join forces with their own alliance.
That is actually the reason I posted here in the first place - I believe the Typhon Pact would be a MUCH better enemy than the Klingons, and wanted to see if anyone else agreed.

Oh, and you forgot the Breen and Tzenkethi.

Re: Star Trek: Online

My guess would be that if they had Klingons as the primary adversary, it would mean less designing of completely new ships for 'new' races. Considering their track record for new vessel designs, I wouldn't put it past the developers.

Unfortunately that report got this response from Cryptic: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...792#post922792

Also it was mentioned by one of their representatives at the European Games Expo that they expect the release date to fall somewhere in March 2010.

Hmmm, why do I have the feeling that this is too early?

Re: Star Trek: Online

Okay, maybe this says more about me than I'm comfortable with, but...

RANT ON!

Did the guy in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uo0o9kKVqDo) call the area of space between the Federation & Klingon Empire the "Arachnis" sector??? (A-RACK-NISS)

It's the "Arcanis Sector" (R-CAIN-NISS)
I thought the people who knew this stuff were working on the game?

I'd rather it be renamed completely than no one there know how to pronounce it.

AND rant over.

Apologies.

There can me more than one sector along the Federation-Klingon border.

Re: Star Trek: Online

I´m really looking forward to this. This could be so great. I hope the monthly fee isn´t to high so. This could easily become the best Star Trek game since "A Final Unity".

Too true, It just bugs me.

It's something I first recall hearing in DS9, and then later in the books.

They said they were using the books to get some ideas, so I think it's just a mispronunciation.

I just hope someone catches it if it is.

"If you're teamed up with 4 or 5 other players all of your Captains will end up going down to a ground-based mission.
Craig says. Cool.

"If you're teamed up with 4 or 5 other players all of your Captains will end up going down to a ground-based mission.
So instead of one captain ignoring regulations, we have 5 captains all going on an away mission together.

Sounds really smart...

Re: Star Trek: Online

If a captain wants to go down to the planet, he can go. I look at it as "Captain's Prerogative."
