Mine Enemy - Review

Captain's Blog Stardate 88726.91

All I can say is wow. Is it just me or does each new mission released in the game get better and better? The first thing I want to comment on is the Orions. Where did they come from and why are they here? I remember them in another Romulan mission so I'm starting to think that some of them are siding with the Romulans and others with the Klingons. I also have a feeling that they will be playing more of a role as this series continues. Overall the mission was pretty amazing. It felt longer than the other ones, but not too long. The cut scenes were amazing and had the perfect angles. The voice overs really engaged me into the story. I love that they are adding these in. I really enjoyed the fact that doing one thing would affect something else in the mission. For example, if you kill the first guard in the mine then you'd have to face 5 groups of Romulans in the next chamber. Being diplomatic only makes you face one group. The Horta was also a great addition and probably my favorite part. For those who don't know, taking the path to the north of that central room lets you save a Horta and gives you an accolade. The one thing I didn't like was the battle with Janek. It felt very very buggy to me. One moment she was in one place, the next she was someplace else. My bridge officer kept getting stuck somewhere and those freed Romulan prisoners were always in my way. The good definitely outweighs the bad with this mission. Cryptic just continues to astonish me with the work they do. Plus it helps giving a pet Horta as a reward =D. Don't forget to give me your thoughts on this mission and check out the Mine Enemy Walkthrough if you need any help. On a side note, I have just started the official STO Academy fleet in game. If anyone would like to join, just click the Fleet link on the menu bar on the left. Fill out the form and I'll invite you.

The Orion's are there because the Orion Syndicate has claimed one of the moons and does not like you snooping around their property :)

Touché, but how do you explain their involvement in that other Romulan mission? I believe it was Under the Cover of Night. There is a walkthrough on here if you need to refresh your memory.

Drake has contacts with the Orion Syndicate that Starfleet thinks he is going to use to make a deal with the Romulans. Those pesky Orion's always making trouble they should do a series with the syndicate as the main badguys I think that could be fun.

I'm sure an Orion series will be coming. I believe the 5th series is supposed to be Tholians, but I'm not 100% sure on that.
