13 comments by Gul-Dukat(tech) on Oct 11th, 2014

Hello to you, my loyal citizens of Cardassia. Today I bring before you a short video showcasing our progress in back-end changes and polishing. Sadly we're not quite ready to reveal the magnificence of Cardassian and Dominion fleets, but rest assured Dev Diary 13 will be on the way very very soon! 

A Big part of what led me to create this short video was simply excitement about the way things are looking and playing for us now. We've been lucky enough to get even more talent on board to help us out in the final stages! Baz1701 whom many of you will recognize from the Bridge Commander community was good enough to volunteer to help us out after the team met him at Destination Star Trek last week. In addition to this amazing piece of news that has gone a long way to ensuring we can meet the final date we have set Ambarenya, a previous member of the team whom is primarily responsible for the Federation description entries has been able to rejoin us after a sabbatical concentrating on other things.

Enjoy the video, my loyal citizens, and let us know in the comments below!

Just out of interest (sorry if i have missed this in an earlier update) is there any chance you may be changing the wormhole effect to a more DS9 style?

Again for such am amazing mod

It really doesn't take very long to build the research facilities and carry out the necessary research before you're building your second, more powerful capital ship. That said, your first capital should be able to remain useful throughout the game - no slouch when it comes to firepower, with useful abilities, including the ability to capture enemy planets.

I feel sad if my original capital ship gets destroyed. Faithful old warhorse has been with me since the beginning.

While there is some merit in what you say, however the current format is used to portray a sense of 'build up' - small colonial force arrives in a new sector before finding itself confronted by hostile forces, forcing it go go on the offensive/defensive. The way things currently are, every race starts with a more or less equal footing - even the Borg...

The Galaxy is the second capital off the assembly line anyway so you'll have one firing a full photon spread at something fairly quickly.

Having said all that, I'll run your suggestion past the dev team however I wouldn't hold on to hope... If I were you.

It's more about time constraints and engine limitations. You will still be able to board and take them but there probably won't be any visible assimilation of frigs. Caps we've decided to leave unboardable for now, as it can really skew balance.
