Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred.
It's TUESDAY! Let's Play Star Trek Online!
And it's come to this... the many space miles along the interstellar highway that we've traveled has brought us here... one final nose-to-nose slug fest with the Iconians, for the fate of Earth and the Galaxy! The Alliance has a plan... to use the Krenim ship to create a gateway to the past, allowing a team to go back 200,000 years to wipe out the Iconians on the day their world was invaded... but all isn't as it seems.
This mission... let's face it... it brought conclusion to the first five years of Star Trek Online... everything was building towards this point, and it was a satisfying conclusion... even with the predestination paraodox of Sela going to the past to betray the Iconians so that they can destroy Romulus so that she is motivated to go back to the past to the destroy them and... the circle goes on and on and on... in fact, this mission actually gives reason for replaying Star Trek Online as all three major faction (Federation, Klingon, Romulan) cause the road to this point is different, but the result is the same...
When you watch the video, you may have noticed my character really sided with Sela on the matter, because Romulans need to stick together and I wanted to see if I could've gotten a different result than obviously siding with Kagren...
But my favorite part of this mission comes when the fleet is going to try and hold out against the Iconian Armada after my ship, along with Sela's and Kagren's goes through the temporal gateway... Commander Jarok calls on the remaining ships to form up on her... and Captain Shon starts to quote likes from 'The Charge of the Light Brigade'... it's such a badass moment, and yes what the player gets to do on Iconia is cool... but I WISH that STO made a STF that allows players to fight that battle like the Kobayashi Maru scenario... cause it would be a lot of fun to see if the Alliance could win the day against hopeless odds.
Anyway what follows afterward is the Temporal Cold War... which I've done as Zagreus, but we'll continue on with Sobar and his crew to see the Romulan Perspective... plus we have the pending major update coming to the game in the near future as well, so there's plenty of things to be excited about.
