paragonlostinspace Nordavind  Yep, its a great compromise and very cool of them. Atten is a legend, like some kind of MMO character. Amazing what he’s done.

JeromyWalsh  I love what you are doing, and I backed it, and I’m cheering for you but probably gonna have to bet against that deadline :D Nothing personal, its just, you know, kind of what MMORPGs do LOL.

Nordavind  Though one of the submersibles on the RSS David Attenborough will be named Boaty McBoatface. ;)

Siphaed Yeah, and I don’t even see it as a horrible thing. Good MMOs take time to bake. Impatience hurts the genre, so I’ma be patient. :D
… Except as pertains to Blizzard. *side-eye*

Siphaed Zulika_Mi_Nam I don’t often agree with your point of view but this one no hesitation :-)

Nordavind that may well be its official name but it will always be Boaty McBoatface inour hearts :-)

Slightly MOPcast related: The ship won’t be called Boaty McBoatface, but RSS David Attenborough.

Enterprise wasn’t that bad.  I’d wager to say that all of Enterprise, even its worst episodes, were better than any Wesley Crusher episode of Next Generation.  Will Wheaten maybe some cool hotshot now days, but back then he was the most annoying character ever created for Star Trek. Ever. Even more so than Q.

Zulika_Mi_Nam Ha, well, timeline-wise, Voyager/Nemesis was the most recent, with Enterprise being a prequel series and all that.

After a little research, I decided to sit on the sidelines for CoE.  I hope it funds and makes it out the door with the planned systems intact though.
I can tell Justin is a true Star Trek fan as he said something in regards to the last series, Voyager – ya I made though one episode of Enterprise too.

Bree, I’m the same way on backing games. I backed Camelot Unchained  and I don’t expect it until late 2017 (maybe early 2018).  I’ve hopped into it for the crafting/player markets alone.  The different Alpha phases were delayed by many months; the Beta now too.  That’s expected.  MMO launches backed by big companies alone have announced many years out from when they launch with many delays too. That is the nature of the beast that is complex digital gaming worlds (no, not copy-and-past instanced boxes to sell housing items akin to SotA).  I have popped into CU maybe a grand total of twice during FNF’s.  Just basically waiting for the feature flesh out.
