    I would love to see Garak and Dukat voice overs. Being able to explore Cardassia would be fantastic.

    Sela may have be the one who destroyed Romulus. But Picard was the one who sent her mother back in time. And he did so based on what Guinan. So Guinan or Picard are the ones who are then responsible for the whole Iconian war?

    Its a great debate in our fleet.

    But me always being the devil’s advocate, asked another question…

    “Who made the temporal Vortex that the Enterprise -C went through?” Us? Sela herself? Or another temporal faction? Sounds like a perfect thing for THE TEMPORAL COLD WAR!

      I blame Captain Rachel Garret. If she had stayed where she was and died like she was supposed to, none of this would ever have happened.

    • GavinRuneblade on January 30, 2019

      I can’t help but think about the similarity to the time, many years after the Civil War, when Pickett was asked which of his supporting commanders failures, or his own, was responsible for the results of “Picket’s Charge” and he replied “I always felt the Yankees had something to do with that”.

      One thing Midnight made clear is that long before Sela did what she did, T’ket (at least, possibly other iconians as well) was a hateful being no longer capable of compassion even for her own people.

      Everyone has a choice of how to respond to being wronged. Putting the blame for our actions on someone who wrongs us is a cheap copout. Star Trek has always been about taking the high road, even when it’s harder.

      One has to wonder how might M’tara and L’Mirren have spent the last 300,000 years if T’ket had been the one Sela killed on the gateway instead of some anonymous Iconian civilian. L’Mirren, even with T’ket’s influence and the trauma of the loss, still knew forgiveness. M’Tara was cynical, but still showed compassion for the Preservers and her Heralds, and she tried to pursue the war humanely.

    Cardassian embassy leading into playable faction, Free T6 upgrades for my Galor class cruiser, and pretty much what Ron and Sanokskyrat said.

    On a sidenote, what do they intend to do with the annorax time ship? I personally believe that the ship, whose purpose is now been fulfilled, is too dangerous to leave in any one faction or alliances hands. It should be destroyed or dismantled so no one group or evil subset of a faction can get their hands on this very powerful weapon.

    Note on discussion “can you be prosecuted..” think of the movie “Minority Report”… What to do with Iconia..Well, as soon as T’ket settles down, may have her open up a Bar,Grill, and Combat training arena.. just a thought. Give us a reason to go hang out.. and you know.. Nature loves a paradox.. so no real issue with several thousand starship captains that have all performed the same act.. The universe is just wierd that way..*wink!*

    Wonderful show everyone. I think they will release the new episodes, the mirror event (modified), and then drop the new season. It will involve the gamma quadrant.

    My wishlist for the Cardassian arc revamp:

    If the remake includes content from “Cage of Fire”, please do the ground part right. Boff pathing is horrible in the current episode.

    In some way, keep “The Tribble with Klingons”. Either leave it in it’s current arc or move it into the Klingon arc.

    Bring back Karen Andrews, DS9’s executive officer from “Second Wave.”

    I hope the Tholians will be introduced in some way. But then again…

    The current Federation/Cardassain arc has several enemy factions. Cardassian True Way, Alpha JemHdar, Mirror Universe, Pah-Wraiths, Undine, Klingons, and the Dominion. You might even consider Section 31 as antagonistic faction. The number of factions we face should be trimmed a bit.

    It all looks great! But I wish that they would have changed or removed the mission “Of Bajor”. I love that STO is not all about PEW PEW PEW! buuuut when we engage in talkie talkie missions I want them to be more engaging. I feel like that mission cloud have been streamlined more. Great show as usual!
