This place is so Borgy that even space itself has turned green. Or perhaps there was a St. Patty’s Day parade.
Now that things are calming down a little following the Agents of Yesterday intro missions and the Risa summer event, I’m able to get back to questing my way through the episodes in order. I’m still in the middle of the Delta Rising series, so I guess it’s time to do a handful of random missions to make friends with various cameo races from Voyager.
Two out of the four have to do with the Borg and pretty much all of them are just cruising around in your ship and blasting stuff. If nothing else, it was a good excuse to get back in touch with this Atrox carrier. I know last time I spoke of it I was super-excited about getting this ship back, but I have to say that after an hour or so with it, I’m sporting serious reservations.
Mostly my complaint comes down to the sluggish nature of the ship. It’s as agile as a loaded oil tanker and that makes getting anywhere or participating in combat more of a backseat event. Sure, it’s cool to see all of my fighters swarming about, but I have to ditch my torpedoes to go full turrets just so that I can always be fighting.
I’m starting to think that I might want to go back to my heavy escort carrier. Fewer ships, sure, but the photon torpedo spread and the faster speeds and turning would be quite welcome indeed.
