Can we please avoid using US Military terminology to refer to ranks and so forth? (1) Its ethnocentric (and I'm saying this as a US citizen), (2) its not analogous to the series (we never see Commanders called an O-5), (3) its not comparable to the alien ranks and (4) it goes over the heads of tropers who have no connection to the military and don't know those terms.

So with the addition to STO of the Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird ( http://sto.gamepedia.com/Scimitar_Dreadnought_Warbird )which is basically the best aspects of the Bortas Cruiser, Odyssey Cruiser and Andorian Escorts... with a hanger... and battle cloak... and a freaken Death Star laser... I have to ask is this pay-to-win or power creep? Or both?

It's not nearly as easy to use as it appears. A lot of people consider the superweapon useless, in fact, because of its tremendous wind-up time (and it's especially bad in PvP since the game's PvE teaches you "avoid the big green lightshow"). It's also *huge*, which makes it surprisingly difficult to actually turn properly. The huge size also makes it easier to target, apparently - it's much squishier than it appears at first glance.

There's a bit of power creep going on, perhaps, but it is definitely not a pay-to-win ship. If anything there's been a lot of discussion of the Scim being underwhelming for the asking price.

Am I the only one who feels that the last mission in the Undine story arc is a bit anti-climactic? As a federation player you've gone through 7 different story arcs and taken part in numerous conflicts. You were a major player in the Klingon war, went back in time and met THE Enterprise, you took part in the battle for DS9, and went all the way to the Gamma quadrant to save the Federation, and you fought off the Breen, Borg, and the Romulans. And the final mission (of the ENTIRE GAME) is "A Light in the Dark"? I don't want to spoil anything, but it's incredibly easy. There's standard space and ground combat and there aren't any hard bosses to defeat. Considering the magnitude of some of your previous missions this one isn't difficult and I feel that it's really missing something. Am I the only one who feels this way?

"Stealth Pun: the most recent (as of may 2012) addition to the Federation Fleet is the Atrox Carrier, a Vice Admiral level starship designed by the Caitians, a race of humanoid felines. its a Cat Carrier."

How is that a stealth pun? I seriously don't see how it is. Is it simply because of the alliteration? Please, enlighten me.

Cat-carriers are the boxes you use to take your cat to the vet. Whilst they complain the entire way.

Or is that just my cat?
