Does this mean an … Continue reading Star Trek Official Fan Film Rules Released, thanks Axanar!

Attention to Detail – The Little Things in Agents of Yesterday

Updated with the proper credits as to the team, and further explanation of the origins of the symbols used.  Ironic and embarrassing considering the title of this blog post 😉 This hasn’t gotten a lot of attention yet, but the attention to detail in the upcoming Agents of Yesterday expansion has many Tailor fans excited.

First Impressions: Hands on with the Vorgon Xyfius Heavy Escort 3.5/5 Stars

For most players the process to earn the ship takes little more than 5 minutes a day on Risa. It can be done with a rental jetpack, and from most reports is a simple process to learn. I’m not a fan of the flying game so I took advantage of the Lobi voucher route and finished the ship on day one. There isn’t an advantage … Continue reading First Impressions: Hands on with the Vorgon Xyfius Heavy Escort 3.5/5 Stars

Anecdotally it seems like we’re getting them sooner each season. The Na’Kuhl are a temporal adversary after all, so in theory at least they could have shown up at any time 😉 My first impressions with the Na’khul … Continue reading Overdue Review: Hands on with the T6 Daemosh Na’Kuhl Science vessel 4/5 Stars
