A Beautiful Memorial, and a great plan for the long term.

Cryptic’s move to memorialize Leonard Nimoy was not only touching, but well thought out for the future.  It’s a tough place for any company to be in.  How do you memorialize one?  When does it become crass commercialism? They solved that in a beautiful way. The statues on Vulcan and New Romulus set the tone for arguably the one character who has impacted the multiverse … Continue reading A Beautiful Memorial, and a great plan for the long term.

T6 Jem’Hadar Strike Ships will indeed have a Frigate Pet variant.

Chalk up another positive move by SalamiInferno.

UPDATED: T6 Jem’Hadar Strike Ship Stats – A Marginal Retread of a Fan Favorite Ship.

At first glance, the T6 Jem’Hadar Strike itself is underwhelming with only minor improvements over the original Jem’Hadar Attack ship. Hull improvements which are negligible considering the the jump in DPS, a seating arrangement that does offer some Command and Intel abilities (questionable for an escort at best), and a +5 to engine power. (Yes, Bug ships are still awesome in the right hands.) Apparently … Continue reading UPDATED: T6 Jem’Hadar Strike Ship Stats – A Marginal Retread of a Fan Favorite Ship.

After Leonard Nimoy’s passing this week at 83, the Senator offered this take on the state of Star Trek Online.  Its a honest assessment, … Continue reading Guest Blogger: Senator Vorporak
