Lets Play Star Trek Online: Capture The Flag Into The Breach

So a day earlier than normal, we have a new 'Lets Play' for 'Star Trek Online'... and it's a botched recording, as the game crashed on me at the very end of the mission 'Capture The Flag' which basically saw the Super Vaadwaur get knocked into the Singularity Core of the Lleiset.

Anyway, the mission opens as a rescue opperation, the Vaadwaur have attacked a group of Alliance vessels, and my ship along with the Lleiset are sent in to save the day. To speed things along, when a ship is rescued they join the battle, thus making the space combat easy as pie. However, the Lleiset gets boarded, and so we head over to fight off the invaders, fighting all over the Lleiset (corridors, sick bay, the armory, engineering) and close quarters is just awesome and makes for great visuals.

The before mentioned 'Super Vaadwaur' is a key point in this portion of the game, as it starts to call back to an season 1 episode of Star Trek The Next Generation... which we'll talk about when it's totally revealed within the game. (Those of you who played the Delta Rising missions know already... but for anyone who comes across my blog, don't want to spoil things too much!)

Now as I said, the botched recording aspect of the mission ending, led me to include 'Into The Breach', a group mission that... well... shows off some huge limitation of a Schmitar... as the turn rate and stopping distance makes it extremely difficult to keep pace with ships with brisk-sharp turning cycles and whose size doesn't lead to momentum carrying them forward in a confined space. Still 'Into The Breach' is basically STO's 'Blow up the Death Star' mission. It's a lot fun with ships that can turn and stop on a dime.

Still its two for the price of one thanks to a foul up! Enjoy!
