    I lol’d at “Elvish has left the building.”

    Just sayin’…

    Very funny show, thanks to both of the guests for coming and talking.

    Aznia is correct, “elvish has left . . .” was wonderful.

    cq1) No, it is not copyrightable.

    cq2) I am hopeful, but the teaser does not give much to work with.

    Did anyone else wonder if it is significant that the teaser trailer said “New Crews” plural, not “New Crew” singular?

    Qapla’ Priority One!
    I too laughed at “Elvish has left the house”. It was quite unexpected, although there ARE plenty of pointy-eared characters in STO; can I have a Romulan Longbow for my next firefight with the Na’kuhl?
    None of my research makes me believe that CBS and Paramount can copyright the Klingon language. Now I have to write foundry missions where the Klingon portion of the dialogue is only in Klingon!
    I love the logo! I thought it looked steampunkish, and quite fitting for the time period under consideration. I am anxiously awaiting the new series, since my wife and I already subscribe to CBS All Access.

    Great job, everyone.
    CQ1: I’ll just paraphrase an old saying – My legal advice and a couple of bucks will get you a cup of coffee and a lawsuit.
    CQ2: I found the teaser uninspiring. However, if I had not known the show was coming, I suspect I would have been thrilled with it. Also, ever since I saw someone comment that it appears to be a teaser for a new show called “STAA TAEK,” I just can’t unsee it.

    I totally agree with Salami that his communication has been a highpoint of his tenure. I hear it mentioned constantly, everyone is really appreciative of how much he talks to us.

    Also, SQUEEE, they’re talking about putting the story blogs in game and even have ideas on how to integrate it to the story flow! Thanks for asking that question.

    That was awesome.
    Thank you Steve Ricossa for taking the time and you Priority One for hooking and reeling him in. 🙂
    The interviews are always the highpoint of P1 and I’m always looking forward and re-listening them for the info they provide.

    Even when he couldn’t divulge info he sort of gave some info. The Tal’Shiar trained him well.:)

    I enjoyed the science piece with Dr Robert Hurt, though after mentioning he plays with a controller I keep picturing him gazing at the stars mashing buttons.

    Kenna + Elvish = Awesome.

    Hi Priority one, my thought’s on the new CBS trailer about the color’s. Red for Command, Gold for engineering, Green for Marines and Blue for Science. Great show overall as normal guys thanks Steve for coming on it was really cool,
