Greetings, Captains! You’re listening to Episode 150 of Priority One Podcast (that’s right, 150!)- the premier Star Trek Online podcast! This episode was recorded live on TrekRadio.net on Thursday, November 14th, 2013 and published for download on Monday, November 18th at PriorityOnePodcast.com!
That’s right, Captains, 150 episodes, the big one-five-oh, and we couldn’t have done it without your support! Unfortunately James got a little too into the celebratory mood with the Cardassian Canar, and so Tony and Elijah take the helm whilst wearing party hats!
We celebrate this milestone episode with plenty of special guests & plenty of content! This week we Trek Out the science behind a Dyson Sphere when NASA Jet Propulsion Lab’s scientist, Dr. Robert Hurt joins us again on Priority One Podcast. In STO News, Season 8 has finally hit Holodeck, and we’ll be giving you our first-impressions of the new content. Several Dev Blogs have been published as well (19, 20, 21 and 22) – so we’ll be highlighting those for you too! Later, we’re joined by Star Trek Online’s Community Manager, Brandon “Branflakes” Feltzer to share his insights on community feedback for Season 8, and of course as always, we’ll open hailing frequencies and see what’s incoming from you, our lovely listeners.
What is your idea for a feature that Perfect World could build into ARC that might make it a more acceptable – or even useful – addition to your gaming experience?
What are your thoughts on the new Federation tutorial? Do you think it remedies the barrier to entry for incoming players? Does it do a good job of teaching game-mechanics whilst immersing you in the Star Trek mythos?
Captains, what do you think of the new Voth Bastion Cruiser? Is this a ship you want to fly? Is it more attractive than the other available Flight-Deck ships in-game?
Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
