Gamma Quadrant
« on: 14 January 2009 03:20 AM »
I know this will probably be in a huge expansion later on. We haven't got much news in the Timeline on the Dominion. I don't think the Founders hold can last. I wonder if they will even care if it does. I predict that the Jem'Hadar are going to come into their own. We only know about a few races in the Gamma Quadrant. So I think they'll end up invading here so we'll get more races in the expansion.

IF they are including Deep Space Nine and Bajor in Star Trek Online at Launch - I dont know how they can possibly NOT include parts of the gamma quadrant at launch.

Perhaps we will see a small portion of it.....

OR they could pull the, "You can visit Deep Space Nine, Bajor, Cardassia etc., but the Prophets have closed the wormhole during this time of violent unrest in the Alpha Quadrant." 

Anything's possible in the Star Trek universe.  Maybe they will just put some orange space traffic cones in front of the wormhole with a sign that reads, "Detour-70,000 light years ahead"

Naw, the UK doesn't have a monopoly on that, try driving around Chicago sometime, we have the perpetual "orange cone" highways.

been thinking about this problem, but you see this is the problem trying to make the game in the future, people already want to go to certain places and the staff will have a hard time explaining why you can't.

if they had set the game inbetween TOS an TNG (you know that elusive 75 year gap in history) they could have easily and slowely introduced new areas of known history, while at the same time defining what occured in that 75 year gap. Known beginning and ends work for games, although if Gene had mae the gap longer (like 300 years) it'd have made the job easier.

but then again, 80% of the people would be upset if they couldn't have thier Defiants, galaxies and svies.

I don't know.  Setting Star Wars Galaxies in the middle of an established timeline was one of it's greatest failings.  I won't get started on that abortion... 

But I like the idea of setting it in the future's future.  You have a lot more rope to play with, although it's still just as easy to hang yourself.  If they have a good set of story writers, you can pratically write anything or anyplace out of the "now." 

Although, truth be told, I am nervous about the quality of the writing staff after reading the timeline updates. 

But then again, I felt the same way after having the plots of some of the Star Trek expanded universe books explained to me.  But when I read the books they were mostly good...mostly.  I hated what they did to Trill.  Making them related to those annoying brain parasites from the Next Gen.  That is, to date, the only episode that I turn off when I see it on.  I hate that episode and hate what they did to the Trill.

OK well...I'm done with that little conversation with myself.  ;)

well Star wars Galaxies was screwed from the beginning, tghe new KOTOR MMO is going to be much better off in that reguard, and is set inbetween known events, but before the movies.

I truely belive with a franchise Title, it must be wthin known beginnings and endings, otherwise it becomes just another abhoration with a crappy story attached to it.
