    Twice now, the Son'a have been referenced in story content posted on the Star Trek Online site. It looks to me like they may feature more prominently in a future update. I'd be torn about this if it's the case. On the one hand, I like the idea of having the Son'a in-game. On the other, I'm afraid of what PWE/Cryptic might do to them.

    I always thought the Son'a should be part of the KDF. I am afraid though, their ships will be placed into a lock box with a mission or two that will feature them.

    Thanks for the videos kjc.

    The Constitution looks gorgeous, that is my favorite ship in the Prime Universe. Sigh, and I'm stuck with a Galaxy that is getting owned by 23rd century Romulan warbirds.

    I can see what you meant by the sounds of the TMP pulse phasers, yeah they are not the sounds from TWoK. The beams themselves also look a bit too fast or something, they aren't quite like they looked in the movie. That said, I LOVE pulse phasers, so I'll take them! I generally don't like TNG style phaser banks, so these would look lovely coming out of the batteries on that Connie.

    I'm always afraid of what Cryptic/PWE does.

    So much lost opportunity for awesome stories and features. STO could be so much better if they had a solid plan in place from when they were bought by PWE. Oh well that's what modding other games is for I suppose.

    The pulse phasers have a very odd sound, its sort of similar to wok but doesn't quite have the same 'punch' the sound has in the movie, not sure if the problem is lack of bass or if its just been cleaned up.

    What are the rules when it comes to STO-related content spoilers again?

    If you are wanting to discuss the new featured episode and are uncertain if anyone else has played it yet, just wrap it in spoilers tag. (Click on the "Insert" tab at the top of the chat box and select spoiler and give it a title). This way, you can say what you want and if anyone reads it, no one to blame but themselves.

    So Cryptic seemed to neglect using the ugly stick when making the new Son'a frigate, though I don't like that they used the particle collector as a dreadnought.

    It also seems a bit like J.G. Hertzler's voice acting in this episode was sub-par, at least until the end.

    I like the Son'a ship explosion effects, though I wonder why they're there. Are they supposed to be the subspace weapons they have aboard detonating?

    Oh, and....kwonos....

    Son'a frigate: I was not able to get a good look at the ship when I played the episode. I may have to demorecord a portion to get a good enough look. That said, when there is so little on a ship design, it can be quite difficult to expand to other classes. I know I have tried and failed many times.
    J.G. Hertzler: I agree. It did seem flat and was not the Martok I remember. I do hope it gets better in subsequent episodes. I think Sela and Paris was the same way for me. The only one that really seemed to be able to pick the character back up immediately was Tuvok and Nelix.
    Son'a ship explosions: I like the ship explosions too. I think you are right that it may be the subspace weapons exploding. I actually wished that was in the movie.

    Haha I caught that Kwonos though I do not think it is the fist time I heard it pronounced like that. Can't remember the first time.
