Six months ago I made an effort to go back and watch Voyager (since I never got into it), and posted my initial thoughts on the series. As it turned out, I found the whole thing far too tedious and boring to watch; I couldn’t finish Season 2 and had to drop it before my tear ducts dried out.
I don’t know if watching Voyager actually caused me actual brain damage, because I subsequently watched the Star Trek Animated series and found that to be more entertaining. -_-

Included in yesterday’s patch is a new ground queue called Miner Instabilities, which is appropriately 23rd Century and AOY-based. Given the poor performances of the two AOY space queues (which made farming Temporal Marks difficult), and the relative dearth of active ground queues lately, this one is particularly noteworthy.

Did you know that the JJ-movie-verse (now officially coined the Kelvin Timeline) is now a part of Star Trek Online?

Gawd, I deserve a medal for doing these.

One of the new things that came with the Agents of Yesterday expansion is a brand new Science-based Captain Specialization option: Temporal Operative. This one thing has the unique distinction of fundamentally affecting my play-style for one specific toon, hence I am going to discuss this in a standalone post.

I had my initial run through of the new AOY content in the last couple of nights, with a brand new TOS toon: the sassy and funky Foxy Brown! Long live the 60’s and 70’s! And boo for no huge Afro ‘do! Small ‘fro is the next best thing.
Anywho, here are my initial impressions of the latest STO expansion.
