Season 9 Rumors

Captain's Blog Stardate 91790.99

So let me spread some of the rumors around for Season 9 which should be coming in April (yay).

Tuvok will be returning for at least two more episodes that follow the events of "A Step Between Stars". I'm looking forward to more of that because I really enjoyed that mission. Speaking of missions, Terradome and the Undine should be getting a nice revamp. Those story arcs and the Terradome STF really need some love from Cryptic.

The biggest rumor in my opinion is a revamp to kits. Right now you buy a kit and it comes with a bunch of abilities. The revamp would allow you to choose individual abilities and essentially create your own kit. That's something I've been looking forward to and wanting for a long time. Along a similar topic, science vessels should be getting that secondary deflector slot.

Apparently there will be a military based fleet holding. Not sure exactly what that means but all I know is Cryptic can slow down on these holdings. Don't get me wrong, they are cool and I enjoy visiting them, but they don't need to come out with a new one all the time. It's like reputations, they can release a new one every other season. I'd be ok with that.

I think that about covers the basic rumors for Season 9. Thoughts on these? Is there something you'd like to see? Leave those comments!

In my opinion I like to see kit creator, but I want to see the ideas used in the Dyson Reputation put into Omega, Romulus, and Nukera. Such as ec instead of buying lots of extra stuff. I have to agree my fleet is having problems keeping up with our normal project but adding new holdings keeps slowing us down. Plus dili and doffs are in high demand for these projects. I would like to see one thing... I want to see the Enterprise MACO uniforms :)

I would to see kit creator especially for those BOFFs that you cant change their appearance.

Fleet Projects; our Fed fleet is done but we are struggling with our KDF fleet, really don't need another project at this time.

What I would like to see is a Mk XII Breen Space set. Could be purchased along the same line as the Mk XII Jem'Hadar set :)

I mean no offense but seems like FED side star base's always gets more priority over the KDF side, anyone noticing this to?

Do you mean the fleet starbase and other fleet holdings? Both sides get the same exact thing.

I mean in the fact that there are usally more Fed players playing then the KDF so therefore FED starbase tier 5 while KDF is somewhere near tier 2..

The Fleet Starbase of the STO Academy Legion (the KDF extension of the STO Academy) is currently at Tier 4. I guess, the "lack" of full Tier 5 Starbases is based on the fact, that Starfleet is simply more popular. ;)

I understand what you're saying JayHayesSTO. Unfortunately that depends on the fleet you are in.

Generally though, as TacPaddy pointed out, players tend to favor the Fed side so it's my popular. As far as content that is released, Cryptic has done a good job of keeping it balanced.

I totally agree with the idea that the holdings could take a slow down. But that's from a small fleet perspective. I'm sure the older, bigger fleets want the new stuff.

Having said that, knowing what's ahead makes it a goal to achieve so ultimately Cryptic could slow but ... meh.

I like the idea of Kit-making, but there are going to be some OP combos made that will become standard must-haves and that's a bummer. Tie Kit-making to Crafting ... now THERE'S what Cryptic needs to do.

Well we know we're supposed to receive additional ship by the end of 2014 (I wonder if we'll insurection's scoutship)

I have to admit I wouldn't mind a brake from fleet holding, but I agree that bigger fleet need them to continue generating FC. Maybe they could start looking into new way for people to generate those?

What i really look forward to is new STF, has much has I love doing them with the fleet, we are so regular that missing missing an optional is something we talk for a week after lol . Something on the ground that is fun would be a nice change of pace, the current one are way too long to do for the reward. (we did ISE in 5min 15 earlier, try to top that on a ground one)

There already is a way to earn Fleet Credits once a holding is complete. Fleets can run the provision projects which not only add more provisions but like any other project, allow players to earn Fleet Credits.

I'm also looking forward to a customized Kit and a revamp of the Undine. Frankly, they always seemed a bit underpowered, considering that they kicked the Borg in their behinds.

I would like to see a break in the release of new Fleet Holdings as well. They tend to pull away the focus of the Fleets main Holding, which is the Starbase. As much as I love each and every Fleet Holdings for their unique benefits, all Fleets should be given a break, so they can catch up. This applies especially to rather smaller Fleets.

From the Tribble patch notes (I haven't tried yet):

For testing purposes, the test console on Drozana Station will provide anyone with random assortments of level-appropriate kits and modules as many times as the tester desires.
