Though I’m still catching up on Star Trek Discovery, I took some time to go back through the Mirror of Discovery episode for Star Trek Online this weekend, to see how I felt about it, outside of grouping up with Colton to play it on Star Trek: The Worst Generation (our Let’s Play series for STO here on MMOHuts). As it turns out, I enjoyed playing these missions by myself too, and I think there’s a lot to like about them. Despite being decently powerful, I had a hard time getting through the second mission, Illusion of Communication. I seem to come across bugs in STO often, and I think I’ve finally figured out what’s doing it – skipping cutscenes! After I was done playing Mirror of Discovery, I went back to play some other missions, and wound up locking myself by skipping a cutscene.

Everyone loves the David versus Goliath story where the underdog prevails against the powerful bully. Unfortunately, real life isn’t like that. In reality, the small guy usually loses against the big guy. In the world of video games, something similar happened recently. A couple of weeks ago a private emulated World of Warcraft Burning Crusade server called Felmyst was shut down after the developer Gummy received a letter from Blizzard lawyers threatening legal action. The server took four year to develop and was a labor of love for Gummy who is unemployed due to his battle with muscular dystrophy which is an extremely debilitating uncurable disease. Kyle Orland over at Arstechnica has a comprehensive write up about what happened. Given the legal issues with creating a legacy server, the creation of Felmyst was always a risky proposition. But Gummy felt he could operate under the radar because normally small private WoW servers do not reach the attention of Blizzard. But the … [Read more...] about Felmyst Server Shuts Down After Blizzard Sends Legal Letter to Disabled WoW Fan
