    i feel like every problem you encounter should have a "reroute power from the main deflector dish" option, regardless of the situation.

    SIR, THE BORG HAVE US IN A TRACTOR BEAM

    ain't no than ensign, reroute power from the main deflector dish

    or

    SIR, THE KLINGONS ARE OPENING FIRE

    who cares, just reroute power from the main deflector dish

    or

    SIR, WE'RE GOING TO CRASH AND WE'LL ALL DIE

    cool, reroute power from the main deflector dish

    or finally

    SIR, THE MAIN DEFLECTOR DISH IS DOWN!

    well... reroute power from the main deflector dish!
    This always made me wonder why they didn't equip their starships with multiple large deflector dishes.
    The things just seem so damned useful for everything other then deflecting.

    I feel like for this really to be a Star Trek game true to the series: all combat should be avoidable with awesome monologues, about half the missions should be entirely answering complicated moral questions, and the rest should be ridiculous technobable extravaganzas. Combat is Star Trek is lame, and not really what made it so great or fun, I really hope this game gives some cool, non-combat options.

    You might think that, until the dancing girl crew turns out to be Orions. Then they make slaves out of the pain collar wearing slaves and very disturbing things happen.

    I'm pretty excited about this game. Actually, the things I'm most looking forward to are the Fleet options. Fleets are the guilds of STO. Sadly, I can't find the source now, but I was reading some stuff about how fleets will work. It sounds like Cryptic is taking the secret base thing of CoX to a whole new level. If my understanding is correct, Fleets will have their own star bases, with ship repair docks, mining platforms, and other "guild perks." Additionally, I read somewhere that some of the high-end ships will only be available to successful fleets, probably due to the large cost associated with them. Wish I could find the source for this.

    I'm really big on the social aspect of MMOs. I think games that offer a ton of perks for guilds and fun things to do outside of the usual instance running and raiding are always a plus.

    Edit: Also, Cryptic has said that there is a very good possibility that down the road we will see some new factions, specifically Romulan and Freelance. Honestly, Freelance sounds like the most fun to me. I wish it was going in at launch. Right now, between Federation and Klingon, I think the Federation is gonna outnumber the Klingons about 12:1. I will probably be one of thse Federation. Klingon just doesn't sound that interesting to me.

    If I could pick a dream faction, it would be Freelance, working fringe jobs and trying to stay out of the way of both the Federation and the Klingon empire as well. Sort of a "chaotic neutral" faction that is a home to smugglers, pirates, and other sorts. All races welcome.

    the idea of uncloaking behind a Sovereign class starship in a Klingon battlecruiser, and shoving a barrage photon torpedos up its ass is very very appealing to me.

    Yeah that sounds fun and all I guess... I can't wait until I have to convince a Romulan captain that I'm in the neutral zone for purely scientific reasons.

    I always just assumed that they pillaged and conquered to get their tech/resources, like they do in the show.

    Also, they viking metal'd their way into getting their first ships, which let them go after other races. I mean there is no fucking way they could make a starship on their own. The extent of their idea of science has to be "how do I stab shit faster?" considering how they act half the time.

    Well, if you go by the logic of "if it isn't in the shows, then it doesn't exist" then no, it doesn't exist. The shows and movies are canon for this game. And if Klingon scientists don't make an appearance in 40 years of TV history or like 10 feature films, then that means there aren't such a thing except in some dumbass extended universe bullcrap.

    Klingon scientists are referenced in several episodes of DS9 (and possibly TNG), and one makes an appearance in Enterprise. They're considered lesser citizens in the Empire whose primary duty is to serve the warriors by designing new and interesting ways for them to kill stuff.

    Was that Neelix?
    I remember Quark winding up in sickbay on DS9 after getting some hot klingon tail, but I don't remember Neelix.

    Granted, the thought of neelix having sex is plenty justification for it to be blocked from memory, let alone rough sex with a klingon.

    Has Cryptic given any sort of time table for when this game is coming out, or at least when the beta will start? I'm starting to get super pumped for it. I need something to break me away from WoW, and this game looks very promising. The more recent videos are amazing.

    Also, I've read some things on their official forums that have me pretty excited.

    Apparently, there will be semi-randomly generated content. Cryptic wants players to be able to "explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations" etc . In order for that to be possible, it sounds like they are going to have some sort of randomized planets generated for missions, based on a set of predefined criteria.

    I also read that they are considering a single server option, sort of like EVE. Space is a big place, and if they do it right, there should be more than room enough for everyone. I'm pretty pumped about the idea of a single server.

    There is an episode where Voyager meets the lost Klingon ship in the Delta quadrant. The Klingons on the ship believe Be'lana's (no idea how to spell her name) child is the savior of the Empire or something. I am pretty sure Neelix hooks up with a Klingon at that point.
