It's Friday and that means it's time for another question. You guys came out in force last week, and thanks to you, you'll be seeing Excalbian Lincoln and Excalbian Kahless in Project Londo when it comes out later this year. It was a commanding decision, with 85% of respondents preferring the consistent naming to the more natural naming. We really appreciate your votes and your discussion.
Today, I have the first of two Nor-related questions for you, straight from the team working experimental design Project Babylon. This team, led by Paddy Tye (KazonPADD), is doing painstaking research into Nors and looking for ways we can help them and reduce their overall complexity. In order to facilitate that research, we want your thoughts on two potential rules changes. The first is around using the Station's WEAPONS. Here's what the glossary currently says about doing so:
Glossary wrote:You cannot use your ship's or facility's WEAPONS for any purpose unless it is uncloaked, unphased, and undocked, its WEAPONS are greater than zero, and you have a matching personnel aboard. (If the facility is A Nor, the matching personnel must be in Ops.)Here's the question, as worded by Paddy himself:
KazonPADD wrote:So our first question is: Does being in Ops really matter? If Sisko were alone on DS9 and was busy trying to fix the reactor core when suddenly the Cardassians attack, would he not be able to order the computer to return fire from any location?What do you think? Would this change make sense to you? Do you think it would matter? It would eliminate a rule, which is generally good - but there are often other factors involved, and that's why we're turning to you. Share your thoughts with us in a reply, and let us know if this is a rule that's hurt you - or saved you - in past games. And let us know if it's something you'd be okay with going away, and if that makes sense.
Have a great weekend.
