The sneak peak at starship battles looks great. One thing I learned the Galaxy Class still outmatched the bird of prey in every way. You’d have to bring in support starships to bring down a Galaxy Class especially when it’s the Enterprise D. Looking forward to future battles with lots of Klingons, Cardassians, and so forth including go up against a Borg Cube. Really impressed!

Nice sneak peak. I really liked the visual aspect of the starships battling - I had no idea this kind of thing was going to be in the game. Looking forward to it more now.

Cap Denslog .......... Supplemental

As much as I will enjoy the intellectual pursuit of diplomatically using my persuasive skills…... I always enjoy a good fight. Especially an exceptional round of firing phasers and photon torpedoes at the enemy if my opponent doesn’t see the need to take a seat at the negotiating table.

It looks like you Guys and Gals on the DisruptorBeam Team are doing an exceptional job at giving me a chance for a good fight. Great video and the game seems to be warping into shape. One suggestion although I know this is just a pre beta version of how the game will look. Viewing the skirmish from my Battle Bridge with a LCARS overlay on the edges of the screen would look great. While I’m ascertaining my Shield Strength and Hull Integrity,  a LCARS Tactical Display woulld draw me further as a player into the battle. ........ We need and deserve the full gambit of ST decorum for this awesome game you are about to release.

The new starship battles look great guys.  But Q as a starship crew member?  Don’t you think that’s a little ridiculous?  Now maybe if it was human Q that would be fun but any other Q seems like a bad idea.

No one has said that Q would be a crew member (have they?). That *would* be awkward. Eternal/Omnipotent crewmember with a Linear/Human captain sounds like a recipe for disaster. On the other hand, every mission would be easy, since Q could just ‘disappear’ the problem.

What I’m thinking/praying is that JDL is doing voice work for various missions in which our crews encounter Q and need to figure out a way ‘around’ him (or ‘through’ him) to get to a goal or to prevent a catastrophe. That would be more like Star Trek.

Shan? Khatie? care to weigh in?

I guess you didn’t watch the latest video about starship battles then.

They specifically talk about how using Q will be “risky” but if successful will apply a bunch of status debuffs to your opponent’s ship.

I don’t think Q is going to so powerful that it is an “Instant Win” sort of thing.  Powerful yes, but for you or against you will be the risk.

Not the point at all.  I’m really talking about just the nonsense factor.  I don’t care what’s going on in the Trek verse, there’s no way any version of Q except human Q or the Voyager human version of his son would be a member of your crew.  It’s just silly.  And if he was, he should be tremendously powerful.

The writing around JDL Q helping your crew (and of course the probability of him helping any non-federation crew even moreso) would be more like he shows up and messes with your own crew and less like, “oh hey, Q, glad you reported to your station for duty.  Maybe if I’m really lucky I can convince you to mess with my opponent just enough for me to get some weird advantages but not enough to just make them disappear or win the fight for me outright”

The whole thing is just strange.  It just seems more to me like they shoehorned him.

Or maybe he has a vested interest in correcting the timeline?
