The Sisko Fiasco & Outcome: Why Does DS9 Crew Even Matter?
Today's show comes hot off the emotional high that was Saturday's event launch disaster. First Sisko was pulled, then he was offered again later, but without synergy, miles, OR a paired sms in a different type of spend event.... Could the outcome have been better? Does this actually benefit SOME players? Why was the change a problem in the first place? All this is discussed THEN we talk about WHY IT MATTERS? Is Sisko even worth owning? Let's break down their purpose, how they work, and what...

Plasma Mining, Espionage, and Heavy Hitter Updates
Tonight folks, we get into some super nerdy science math that eventually, after hours of testing, points to a simple, and common occurrence.... the Harvester is bugged.... BUUUUT not in a way that necessarily HURTS players, but definitely DOES NOT do anything to help with the clarity of the new ASB or it's mechanics. Let's talk about WHAT'S VALUABLE about the ASB, and what's the most valuable as you progress through this loop, as well as break down what's wrong with plasma mining. Then we'll...
Talking Trek Special Report: Gaila Gets Gutted
Today's show is one that's relatively rare.

But today was one of those days.... Talking Trek dives into the decision made by scopely today regarding a very long standing mechanic, the Green Goddess, Gaila.

It’s the Biggest One I’ve Ever Seen....
Of course we're talking about the length of the show.... or the pace of progression, or the scaling back of progression time through an earlier loop, or the event store? There have been many reasons to be fussy with this arc, but it's TURNING out to be one of the better ones in terms of pivot, reaction, and feedback based change. What is the final projected loot count? What is the hard math on Syndicate advancement? And what events do you need to prep for in the final days of the arc as we...

What is the Sting? And Why Does It Hurt?
Tonight we had big plans on lots of math. So we got to SOME of it, but we got into a great discussion on the Mantis, and it's abilities.

So let's find out WHAT it is, and why it's having an impact. President Eco hangs out tonight to talk a little about EVERYTHING and to soak up some of that Talking Trek knowledge. Please share...

Incursions Take 2: Community Roundtable Response
So incursions went off as planned, and TECHNICALLY speaking, it worked for the most part. But there were a few little things, some in engineering, some in design, and others just in perception that Scopely could probably tweak on to make this a little bit better.
