    Just reached T5 in Romulan reputation - hurrah! (I'm a little slower than most because I don't get time to play every day.)

    Then I looked at the T5 Purple Romulan and Reman space sets... 750 marks per PIECE?! Bloody hell, that'd take me months to grind...

    Oh well - I have my Romulan experimental set, Jem'Hadar set and Vesta set equipped. :) This lot sure packs a punch - never have I blasted through stuff so fast in a science ship...

    It does look nice though. One thing is it actually looks decently proportioned. Some of the bridges in this game are just way too big. The captain would need binoculars just to see the view screen.

    Yes. Yes it is.

    Just a quick tip, the fastest way to earn romulan marks is to evolve and sell elder eppohs. Each is worth 400 marks and all it requires is spending 5 minutes everyday for 9-10 days.

    Yeah, one thing that bugs me about the bridges are their size. The interiors in general need reworking. They're all the same generic interiors. If you're on the Odyssey class, or even a Galaxy class, the sizes are fine, but when you're on an escort, or a smaller science ship, it makes no sense to have a two level crew lounge and huge hallways.

    Plus, they don't feel like ship's corridors, they feel like Starbase corridors. I don't think they'll ever fix it, though, even though they can.

    Yeah that's my biggest complaint too. The ship interiors are way out of scale to the character models. Then you get the opposite problem in that some of the starbases seem to compact in side but have huge exteriors.

    My wish list for interiors:

    - More class specific bridges
    - Properly scaled interiors (this my #1)
    - A shuttle bay to walk to instead of beaming over to shuttles
    - Class appropriate engine rooms.
    - And one none interior one: Add Soong-Type (or similar) Androids to the playable character races. Though (possibly and finally) getting Romulans is a step in the right direction.

    Class specific bridges would be great, and they can't tell me they can't do it. The runabout interior is small, and works great! The Wells time ship bridge is small, and is pretty cool, though there's no interior to get to the rest of the ship and that sucks. So I know they can do it, they just have to do it. I've even suggested it to them, with the willingness to pay Zen to get a class specific bridge.

    The Defiant interior could work if you're on an escort, though that is a Zen option.

    I think I went into a STF with default power settings. How embarrassing.

    So, I just did the Temporal Ambassador Mission. I really enjoyed it. I hope that this is a sign of missions to come, good quality, interesting, decent depth.

    A Question, the Yesterday's Enterprise Uniform. I can't find it in the Tailor Menus. Is there some special unlock package to get that. I looked through my inventory multiple times and couldn't find it as a box in there.

    It is not a complete uniform. Just a belt and shoulder strap unser chest gear.
    The Intention is probably to wear it with the TNG uniforms.
    But they forgot the cuffs and collar modifications.

    there should be a new part of the costume menu for chest gear and the other part can be found in the one for belts.

    Typical, came out half-finished and doubt we'll see the rest. Needed more tweaks to work with the TNG-era uniform, and could have been an easy change to tweak the TOS Movie Era uniform to hit the Ent-C uniform as well. Instead, it got rushed a bit and we got a 'meh' belt add-on when they advertised the Yesterday's Enterprise "uniform"

    I'll hold my breath, sure it'll be fixed right after they get around to fixing the Android from the 700-day Veteran Reward. Only 400+ days behind and counting :techman:

    I am not sure. The uniform pack might include the 3rd season TNG uniform if you don't have it already.

    They have added female android and all department versions at the end of 2012.

    I also got my Ambassador class ship although I doubt that I will use it much. The mission was better than was in the near past.

    I made sure to rerun the mission and get a spare Ambassador retrofit, too bad these things are bound to character I could pick up some extras for other characters in both commander and Rear Admiral if they were bound to account.
