Greetings, Admirals! You’re listening to EPISODE 234 OF PRIORITY ONE PODCAST, the premier Star Trek Online podcast! This episode was recorded on Thursday, August 6th, 2015 and made available for download or streaming on Monday, August 10th, 2015 at PriorityOnePodcast.com!
This week, we’re looking forward to Season 11, “A New Dawn”, which was just announced. We have an exclusive interview with Al “Captain Geko” Rivera, and a few other exciting guests, recorded LIVE at the Star Trek Las Vegas convention. He’ll be answering some questions about the new season, as well as taking a few others submitted by Priority One listeners.
But before we get to that, in Star Trek Online news, we’re talking about the rather lengthy patch notes this week, with some new features and one controversial nerf. We’re also looking at what the devs are currently doing to combat lag.
And of course, after the interview, we’ll open Hailing Frequencies for your incoming messages.
