    My Favourite Nicholas Meyer moment:

    Managing to get Spock, in a moment of genius, to make what can be considered a Fart joke in ST6

    “Gas. Gas, Captain”

    The Red Alert mode should really be an optional toggle, or at least for pets. When in recall mode, pets should not enter battle mode, and always full impulse. And increase the distance for pets to enter by a lot, 4 km even 5 km is a must, given current AI.

    My favorite Nick Meyer moment is not so much a moment as a theme: I always appreciated his ability to avoid villain decay. His big bad enemy in Undiscovered Country were Klingons, not some new super powerful race, but the Federation’s oldest rival. And they were dangerous because they acted like traditional klingons. Loved it.

    Content I want to come back, I agree with I think it was Winters who said the joined Space and Ground Borg STFs. I had often heard fleetmates talk about how awesome these were, but I started after they were already split and never got to do one. I specifically don’t want mine trap to be a special event, because it is my favorite content in all of STO and I want it back permanently.

    What retired content should come back? Divide et Impera! There are throngs of new Starfleet captains who haven’t gone through the riveting experience of being railroaded into space shooting up a Romulan base/obviously-a-medical facility by some ridiculously hawkish Starfleet admiral, only for that admiral to turn out to be an covert Undine agent! Who to this day turns up at Starbase 39 for tea with Admiral T’Nae while being completely mum about the whole ‘making you zap innocent peeps for nothing’ thing. EVERYONE here must believe that this head-wringing tale MUST be a part of EVERY future Fleet Admiral’s story, YES?!? *Sees the shaking heads in the room* No?! Just me? Ah, shucks. 🙁

    Really though, I’d like to see Mine Trap come back at some point, probably not in an event grind capacity (for the reasons I’ll describe later), but just as a queue. It was quite fun, at least if you had a good team that knew what they were doing and/or could follow directions. That was really it’s only downside (besides the chances of a 20-man queue popping being nearly impossible nowadays): if people didn’t read the directions, they usually just fopped about and did whatever they wanted without much effect, making it much harder and less rewarding than it had to be. With a decent team on your side though (mostly in the ‘paying attention to things and communicating’ capacity, I don’t think there was much in the way of gear/kit power requirements), it was very enjoyable to watch those salt vampires burn…WITH FIRE!!! (Literally, I burned those vampires with my Romulan Flamethrower. 😉 )
