Oh, people, There are plenty of games that have had their multi-player services cut in the past. If the community is strong enough there will be a program that acts as a connector. It has been done with C&C Red alert 2, and C&C Tiberian Sun, and even some games that had no multi-player features to begin with. Just because the official server is coming down, does not mean multi-player will die. It will just be up to an inventive person to make EA look bad by providing a freeware program that does the same thing.

Except the the Federation is a republic not a democracy. If it were a democracy all citizens' votes would be tallied on every issue. What we see and hear is that citizens elect a council that make decisions. Good grief, Klingons, know your government types.

Not, how it really happened of course, but an interesting design for a game. It kind of reminds me of Age of Rifles.

Thank you for your reply. I'm still not sure about number 7. Your number 3 explanation makes sense. I appreciate the clarification. I don't think referencing TOS is outdated though as the tech for all series, except JJ Abrams movies, are based on TOS; yes, the time at which Excalibur takes place the TOS tech itself may be dated, but the idea behind the tech still applies with some exceptions (ie: Dilithium recrystallization).

I still don't think point 11 makes too much sense though. Will the inertial dampeners and structural integrity fields handle turning a ship at warp? Despite the nav-deflector field, which is not the the issue I meant to address (sorry for the confusion), and only a degree of turn, the energy requirements would be large. I think it would be more likely that the either the ship would mostly survive with the crew being smears on the wall or the ship would crack like an egg. Imagine traveling down a highway at 120 miles per hour (193 kph) and then attempting to turn. Even at small increments you'll feel the stress of the turn as pressure or a sudden lurch. Since warp speed is an exponential measurement, it would be hard for me to imaging a ship capable of making even a one degree turn at 186,000 ^9 mile per second (300,000^9 kps).

In the Next Generation, they already have torpedoes that travel at warp. Why would you need to take your ship to warp and have a huge energy signature aimed at the target. A few warp torpedoes would be less likely to attract attention. Unless you like the idea of over-kill or your target seeing you coming.

A ship is limited to one direction of travel in warp and must drop out of warp for at least 3-4 seconds to calculate a new course, according to cannon. So you are right. That is why most starships when they come under attack at warp drop to sublight speed, because they are then capable of maneuvers. Maneuverability of a starship at warp is like a brick flying through the air.

You might be able to strafe drop out of warp. then come about and warp again, but it would not be worth it, I think.

There is limited in-warp combat in Star Trek, though it is seldom shown as an exterior scene. Before Into Darkness, we see it in Nemesis (The Scimitar disabled the Enterprises warp drive while at warp)and there are many point in Deep Space Nine where Dominion ships attack a shuttle or the Defiant at warp.

That is the easiest and most traditional way to code a warp jump, but I agree with the developers that the warp drive should be more accessible in more situations. The tunnel would limit the creativity for a player to solve certain problems. The Picard maneuver would be very hard to pull off if warp was an isolated tunnel. Also, it would be nice to have to drop out of warp if you came under attack.

This is an exciting development that should help make this an amazing game. I did have a few thoughts about the warp "rules" though

I don't remember warp rule 7; could I have a reference for that one.

Also, number 3 only happened when ships were going at more than the recommended cruising speed for long distances. the Enterprise NCC-1701, for instance, could travel at warp 8 in an emergency, but routinely only
went at warp 6. Warp Six worked for extended periods provided there was
enough dilithium (lithium in season one TOS) to focus the reactor.

Lastly, number 11 is simply flat wrong according to Tom Paris on Voyager. He stated in one episode that the first thing they taught pilots at the academy was, "When faster than light, no left, no right". There is probably conflicts in the cannon, but Paris seems very certain about this, and he is acclaimed to be one of the best helmsmen.

Personally, I would prefer a mod that rewrites or adds to the single player. I don't play multiplayer often and would rather enjoy a deep and rich story line.

I only got part of the way through the new jedi order series, but I really like what I read. It was a welcome break from the usual sith vs jedi/ empire vs rebel(republic) that star wars usually is.

This is a neat idea! I do see some issues with how to coordinate ground and space efforts in a way that would hold the interest of gamers, and there may be possible technical issues with making two maps run side by side without direct, or at least limited, interaction between the two, but if it is possible great!
