Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement…
It’s Tuesday… so Let’s Play Star Trek Online!
The Iconian War continues this week with House Pegh… The Klingon Empire requires the player’s assistance with a covert mission deep within Iconian held space. It’s very dangerous mission that could turn the tide of the war, which isn’t going well, the Iconian Forces are overwhelming, they can appear anywhere at anytime, and the combined forces of The Federation, Romulan Republican and the Klingon Empire need something… ANYTHING to rally hope…
And thus we have our mission, to sneak into an Iconian Base and disrupt their production of Omega Particles, which are used to power there Dyson Spheres. Things go rather smoothly, resistance from the Heralds are easily dealt with… but there is another factor...Kahless the Unforgettable is coming along on this mission as well!
For those who don’t know, this Kahless is a clone of the legendary Klingon Emperor who was discover in the Next Generation episode Rightful Heir, and serves as a figure head, an inspirational leader for the warrior race. He’s along for the ride to make sure one way or another becomes legendary, where songs would be sung as the blood wine flows. And he gets his wish, as one of the Iconians, T’Ket, is also at the base…. And guess who wants to go one on one with her?
That’s right Kahless sees an opportunity, and thanks to a little help from the team, me manages to disarm T’Ket… but chopping her arm off! But alas… Kahless does not get to strike the killing blow and is lost… but he proves that the Iconians can be injured. So while things didn’t go down as intended… the Alliance now know they have a chance… as slim as it is.
This mission is pretty fun, and there is an actual jump scare, thanks to how the Heralds can appear out of nowhere. They can be a bit overwhelming, but in addition to the player’s away team, there is a group of Klingons serving as support, making the battles even more wild. The concluding space battle is also a bit of fun, though the solar portals are still a pain in the backside.
On a side note, I had issues with my lights, so my picture in picture box is darker than usual… hopefully I’ll have it back to normal by tomorrow night for Yay or Nay for the Hall of Fame
