    OMG… that outro! I LOVES IT!

    I’m not sure how long ago this interview was made but I remember saying on more than one occasion in the live recording a few weeks ago that TM stood for Thomas Cryptic Cat Merrone… I also want to point out that I’ve said on P1’s Facebook that the newer blogs have TY P1, a shout out to you guys… Calling it now so Trendy can NOT say nobody’s paying attention. ^-^

    About the Constellation Class… it’s always been an ugly ship to me… it reminds me of the earlier automobiles with the huge grill on the front and me having this deja-vu that I have to get out and hand crank it to start the warp reactor… Not for me. The stargazer and Heavy cruisers are just not comperable in combat to the abilities of the Excelsior, even the fleet variant falls short of the Fleet companion Excelsior.

    As for the announcement trailer… I can’t repeat my feelings for that here. it’s too graphically detailed and not suitable for younger audiences…. Oh what the hell.

    I’ve been telling people that “announcement trailer” was really just an extended teaser… I liken it to the cryptic Devs shoving a banana flavored ice-pop in everyone’s mouths while saying “We also have your favorite flavors, just wait!” meanwhile the Devs snicker childishly after feeding everyone a /banana/ ice-pop….

    The Constellation Class Starship is my absolute favorite 23rd centure ship and because of the Constellation Class costume unlock my Mirror Universe Heavy Cruiser Retrofit is technically a Tier 5 Connie.

    where is this form??? I have looked all over the website and I don’t see any sign of it.

    I was really excited when you announced it awhile back but I haven’t heard you say a thing about it since. I love the idea of having a pseudo pipeline to the devs.

    Hey everybody, enjoyed the episode and thanks for reading my feedback. And thanks to Smirk and Trendy for their hard work for the community. Moving on…

    To be honest I wasnt super excited about Delta Rising, mainly because I’ve never been a big Voyager fan. But after watching the new trailer I am definitely excited to experience that story and see those locations for myself. So kudos to the team who put that trailer together and mission accomplished on raising the excitement 🙂

    PS: maybe its time for me to go to netflix and catch up on Voyager :p

    It was mentioned about the possibility of adding a way of testing starship builds in the game. Doesn’t this already exist in the form of the ‘no win scenario’?

    wonderful show, loved the interviews, thanks for coming up LT and CS.
    Loved the trailer, very well done, with lots of interesting stuff. I really hope we get to see our own characters on the ziplines (or abseiling for the hoyty toyty).
    CQ1) Loved it.
    CQ2) Its a fed ship, meh.

    Glad to hear Trendy and Smirk on the show explaining some things. It was nice to here how things are going.

    CQ1) I loved the new trailer. I normally don’t pick apart trailers so I doubt I would have caught anything you guys didn’t. But it was nice to see the battles in borg space against the Voth. I wonder if three way fights will be present more in this expansion.

    CQ2) I would only get this ship if it fit some roleplaying or storytelling role for me. But that’s the same for any ship that I purchase. It has to fulfill some need fo rme to get me to purchase it.

    I only watched the trailer twice and didn’t notice anything worth noting. In all honesty, adding new content is great, but I would much rather have existing problems/glitches/imbalances fixed before getting a shiny new ship. As for the Constellation class cruiser, the only reasons I can see for getting that ship would be the console and the added ship costume option that was taken away from us previously.

    Re testing new builds, I use the Eta Eridani “Triumvirate” missions; Shmar/Zibal, Traelus/Satellite Repair and Alhena/Distress Call to test builds; dirt simple (and predictable) missions good for some basic test runs.

    For some advanced builds, we use starbase24; get a top 3 tanking without dying once, and your ship/build works 🙂

    Great show, loved the Cryptic Cat and Trendy piece – that’s why we follow you guys!

    Great show guys.

    Oh and Cookie looks a’freakin’mazing in that Crusher uniform 🙂

    regarding the delta rising trailer, i thought it was well made and i think the music really fit what was going on in the background, i also liked how they showed a lot of voyager in space battles. it felt like i was actually watching voyager. regarding the constellation class, i think its cool that they finally added the stargazer to the game. the reason that someone would want to fly it and its fleet variant is because they like the look of it or they are trying to make a cannon captain picard character.
