In this week's show, we talk more Trexels as we Trek Out the game with Lead Designer Craig Bolin! In STO News, we get all nostalgic as Cryptic takes us on a year in review and hints at what’s coming in 2014 -- but that's just the tip of this festive iceberg as there is an avalanche more news and presents coming our way! The Romulan Survivor Duty Officer pack is getting an upgrade, as is the entire roster itself including an awesome new ship that has not only a fantastic new console but a torpedo launcher that's sure to be a winner; Voth set bonuses that will give the Romulans a run for their money; new small craft, a sale on Master Keys and the latest patch notes to hit Holodeck before we dive headlong into a discussion on the changing state of MMOs, and what this means for the players of STO! Then, in this week’s Community Spotlight, our resident foundry guru ChivarlryBean returns with a Foundry Review of “A Time To Search”, and of course as always, we’ll open hailing frequencies and see what’s incoming from YOU, our listeners.
