Stormbound And Down - Lets Play Star Trek Online



Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement...
It's Tuesday, Let's Play Star Trek Online!


And yeah this weeks thumbnail didn't turn out so good... forgot to get screen shots of the cut scenes

Anyway, this week, we're back to where we were before the launch of the Agents Of Yesterday expansion, which technically now that I think about it, should take place after this week's mission of Stormbound... namely the mission Vorgon Conclusions, which is where we see where Kal Danno gets his ship that is bigger on the inside... while at the same time tying things to Star Trek: Enterprise... but at the same time, and this where time travel can give anyone a headache, in Vorgon Conclusions we see Kal's ship as it's being towed by the Tholian's disappear, and at the end of this mission, we learn it returned to 2410, and the player just happens to be at both time periods...

Yeah time travel is confusing....

Now this mission is basically straight forward, it's to get the Tox Utaht back from the Tholians... while at the same time stop them from using it to do harm to a race called the Na'Kuhl , who appeared on Star Trek Enterprise... as Nazis.... in the episode Storm Front two parter.... yeah, since they are Nazis, you can tell they are not good people... and this mission gives the reasons for that... they were the victims of Time Travel, and the Temporal Cold War. Which actually makes some of the dialog in this mission when they declare what they are going to do, makes your character sound a bit dismissive and sarcastic since we took care of the Tox Utaht....

But I digress, you get a decently challenging series of space battles against the Tholians, before you get to board their ship, and that's a cakewalk even with hodgepodge gear.

In addition to the mission, the game play video starts off on New Romulus, since I filled out one of the lower Romulan Reputation tiers, and figure that would make for a nice bonus... but what we see there takes place way back in the the aftermath of Cutting The Cord. The Reputation system with these... little missions and side stories, don't really mess well with the continuity of when they should take place if you're not really grinding them out, which makes things a bit awkward cause you don't unlock it until you hit level 50, which depending on how you're playing, can be a bit tedious if you have multiple characters!

Still it was nice to see what D'Tan was up to... and on that note... I'll catch ya'll next time!
