My posts on STO have been a bit sparse lately, mainly because I am falling back to my old hobby of online text-based RPG. I know in this day and age, how do text-based games compete with MMOs with pretty pictures, right? Well in a text environment you can make your characters as nuanced as you want, unrestricted by a game’s codes. And it’s your imagination being flexed, rather than living in someone else’s.
ANYWAY, I’m not here to debate that today. Nope. Today I just want to do a quick review of the latest episode “The Renegade’s Regret”.
Spoiler Alert? Sure, let’s do that too.

The latest Feature Episode Brushfire hit Star Trek Online last night. As part of Season 13.5, also added were the Endeavor system, the Ferengi Admiralty campaign and addition UI hotbars. Why on a Tuesday and not the usual Thursday patch day? You got me!
I played through the Episode with three different toons last night, twice with Fungi and once on my own, and here’s a quick review. Spoiler Alert! I will try not to discuss a lot of the details in the episode itself, but I may end up accidentally letting something slip. Let this be your warning!

Cryptic just announced Season 13, Escalation, will be incoming. That’s an interesting picture though… where is this, exactly? Those neon signs look kinda like katakana, written by clueless gaijin with poor pensmanship! XD

The new feature episode that came with the giant patches is “Echoes of Light”, which focuses on the Lukari’s (who we met in the episode “Sunrise”) first steps towards interstellar travel. We are essentially playing Vulcans during the Enterprise era, shepherding a new spacefaring species along the way.

The Agents of Yesterday expansion is officially out today (technically, it was last night, so yeah, that’s YESTERDAY!). >.>
Here is the official announcement.

The latest feature episode “Stormbound” is… well, a bit of an odd duck. Ever since the tail-end of the Iconian War, there seems to be more emphasis placed on time-travel plots, which frankly is a tricky thing to play with, and Stormbound is a good example of why that is.
