So looking forward to this expansion! The love of things Trek is apparent in the work and efforts that the fine crew at Cryptic put into this game.

FINALLY they flesh out the DS9 section of the game! Too bad none of the Siskos joined in…Avery Brooks was expected not to take part (sadly) and Penny Jerald-Johnson is busy with The Orville, but there was no reason why they couldn’t get Cirroc Lofton back as Jake. Or cast an adult version of Ben and Kasidy’s daughter Rebecca…and one would’ve expected Ezra Dax to show up in the Aventine…

(Stupid typo)…I meant Ezri Dax not Ezra LOL. And the graphic designers on STO should go back and redo Garak’s expression on the Promenade… he looks like he had an accident in his pants LOL

I would not be surprised if any other characters show up with or without voice overs.

I’d happily pay to have The Sisko appear in a vision from the Prophets and stare muthaf*kerly at me.

And this will be more exciting than anything from Discovery.

Speaking for yourself of course.
People that watch Disco are still way more than the remaining 100 whales that cryptic entirely relies on

Go ahead and keep having a tantrum Ron…

What does Discovery have to do with a DS9 expansion for a video game? Quit whining.

Can you play as Aaron Harberts and deploy the Beverly Hills 90210 bible?

Obsessed much?

Yeah I’d say. Quickly becoming the site clown. Used to be frustrating, now it’s legitimately funny.

I’d say that they are tedious than anything! I feel nothing but pity for them- endlessly trolling because they likely don’t have much in the way of a life. It’s sad.

I find myself playing this game much more than I thought I would. Really frustrating I can’t seem to get the Odyssey long uniform though on console…

Really happy to catch up with the DS9 characters and see what they’ve been up to outside of what’s been written for them in the books.

I believe the only way to get that uniform is to be a paid subscriber for a certain amount of months, or buy a lifetime subscription. But you can get a similar Odyssey uniform from your fleet starbase. It looks better in my opinion and has a shoulder strap like the old WoK uniforms.

lol OF COURSE they opted to do this!
Other than being forced to spend time at sea with “Star Trek” fans,
their doors aren’t exactly being kicked-in with work offers.
We’ve all seen “Galaxy Quest”. Those guys were so desperate for a gig,
they were reduced to doing conventions and TV commercials
for a local used car salesman, all just to get a check.

You know that Galaxy Quest wasn’t real, right?

Bashir is wearing black badge “Section 31?”


I somehow doubt it after what happened in the last season of the show.

Oooooo, I’ve been waiting for a Jem’Hedar playable faction for quite some time. This should be awesome.
