Boldly Going... Again

Since I am taking a brief intermission from SWTOR, I have been looking at some new games to play.  Star Trek Online caught my eye as I have not played it in probably a couple of years.  They've had the Legacy of Romulas and Delta Rising expansions since I last stepped into the game.  So I thought I'd check it out again.  I've had a character since launch, but so much has changed that it seemed like a good idea to start fresh.

Of course,  it turns out I never transferred my Cryptic account over to Prefect World.  Sadly, this ended up being a manual process where I had to submit a support ticket.  That meant no STO over the weekend :(  Monday night, PWE came through and linked up my old account.  I couldn't leave that 675 Zen behind (and 85k Dilithium).

I've always been a fan of Romulans, even if they are just Dark Elves.  So it was a no brainer that I rolled one.  I get to experience the new content and start fresh.  So far, it is pretty cool.  I am impressed with the visuals of the tutorial world and the voice acting.  Everything seemed pretty polished.

I got to the flotilla and called it a night.  I'm not a huge fan of the starting ship, as I really like the TNG Warbirds.  I'll get there eventually.  I'm also a little bummed I am working for the Romulan Republic, i.e. the good guys.  I like my Romulans evil.
