    One thing that Cryptic hasn't said much about for STO is crafting. I was always a bit bummed out about not being able to craft in CoX, and when they finally added it, the system was pretty lame. I'm hoping they allow players to do some crafting in STO.

    Or maybe crafting is the wrong way to go, but something more like a "hobby" for your character. Something to flesh out your character outside of combat and space skillz. I just don't want the game to be so one-dimensional like CoX was. Basically in CoX, the only option the player had was to fight baddies or fight more baddies. There was not a whole lot of character depth out side of combat.

    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.

    The "kuva'mach" (spelling? klingonese is non-existent), supposed to lead the lost klingons to their new world?

    But yeah, Neelix got spun around like a top with that female klingong (hot! lol, except maybe the sharp teeth thing :O ).

    This game looks plastic-y, but they better not fuck it up, because I am going to make a Kirk look-a-like and swaggerfuck my way around the galaxy.

    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.

    Can't wait for the traffic cops necessary around points like DS9. Imagine Ironforge in Vanilla WoW on a friday night ... but with star ships. Wonder what kind of dance/emote routine Cryptic could build into a Defiant Class ... making a low rider out of it might be cool ... 8-)

    Doesn't the replicator have limits though?

    I seem to recall a pretty dire need for Dilithium Crystals pretty regularly and no one popped up with a quick 'Dammit captain, I'll have to go get a new one from the replicator'

    Yeah, but the only things that the replicators have been shown as unable to reproduce is Latinum, Dilithium, Antimatter and living creatures. Outside of that, you're pretty much good to go.

    5 bucks says the first request to a replicator when the game goes beta is for some kind of vibrating sex doll

    That reminds me of watchmen_babies.jpg

    Anyways, when I heard about procedurally generated planets and stuff that moved me from thinking this was going to be an AoC type bust to something that might be worth playing. One thing I really hope they have is a way to move around your ship at will. When you consider that most star trek episodes took place on the ships, there are relatively few ST games that let you explore the ships. Usually you're either on a planet, or controlling the ship itself from the outside. By being able to move around your ship it's kind of like player housing...that goes with you!

    I'm pretty sure Jack Emmerrett said you would have limited access to places on your ship. The bridge, the med bay, the engine room, the teleporter room, and perhaps a cargo bay. But it won't be full access to every single floor.

    Aw, that's really too bad. I think that would have made things so much more fun for me, I can see how it would be hard/impossible to do with those huge flagship type things, but still...

    I think I'd rather feel like I'm the captain of a ship, instead of the ship itself.

    Part of the problem is that the shows don't even visit all the floors of a ship. I can't really think of any episodes of TNG or Voyager in which events take place on the civilian levels of the ships. I mean, the Enterprise and Voyager both lug around a bunch of random civilians who make their home on board the space ships, but you just don't really see that stuff. Its all relatively implied.

    Why do the STO babies have developed breasts and facial hair? Oh wait... they are alien. I always hoped Klingons were born with handlebar mustaches.

    Um, there were no civilian quarters on Voyager. They did convert some crew quarters to accomodate some of the passengers they acquired in the Delta Quadrant, but when they first left on their mission to bring back Chakotay's Maquis, there were no civilians aboard.

    I do not know if this is true or not, but I am going to go out on a limb here and say that you can probably find "accurate" blueprints for all/most of the ships seen in Star Trek somewhere in these interwebs.

    Any way you will be able to play a Klingon pirate so you can go pirate other players?

    Because sneaking around and ambushing other players in a Bird of Prey sounds pretty awesome to me.

    I have a friend who has a poster that lists the blue print of the enterprise and all the floors.

    Plus, each floor wouldn't have to be independently modeled from each other. But I think being able to independently move around your ships would be a huge huge plus in my books.

    There are two bathrooms on Deck 1 of the Enterprise D. One in Picard's Ready Room, one near the conference room.

    However, Jonathan Frakes swears there's only one and its located near the battle bridge.

    Man, it sucks being excited about a game that's still probably 7-12 months away from release. I'm not really bored of WoW, but I've been playing it since launch (over 4 years) and I could really use a change of scenery.
