Lore Based Possibilities for Star Trek Online

Posted Thu, May 13, 2010 by jeffprime

With many TV series, movies, books, games, and comics to draw upon, the Star Trek IP is a rich source of lore that is almost second to none. Sadly, STO hasn’t taken full advantage of that lore, so your pals at Ten Ton Hammer are here to look at some lore-based possibilities that would enhance STO’s gameplay.

I’m stunned that the Romulans aren’t a playable faction at the present time in STO. Who wouldn’t want to play them? First, they’re emotional Vulcans who don’t mind giving in to their emotions and fighting all-out. Second, they’re based on Romans, with a Roman hierarchy and command structure. So far, you have Roman militaristic Vulcans, which is insanely cool, but then you get to add the cloaking device.
