In STO, there is a serious hazard. Almost every place you visit is littered with random asteroids. These things are incredible deadly to space craft. Well, except in STO where you bounce off them.

Actually, as a tactic when being chased, you can sometimes use them to instant break and have your foe fly on by.

I suppose this is nothing like the Corbomite or Picard maneuver and more like the Pike maneuver(the unofficial explanation of his condition).

Get used to this view, every other mission has you navigating an asteroid ring...

not *every* but most... then again there's not a whole lot of decoration in space. Planets, asteroids, nebula, maybe a few moons.. stars.. that's about it, so within that very limited number of elements to put in space they did a decent job of making it pretty.

A lot of systems have quite stunning backgrounds, the only problem is you can't see it for all the bloody asteroids.

Perhaps, but it's to the point now where I'm all "Not ANOTHER asteroid ring..." I can appreciate them trying to beautify things, but I wouldn't mind SOME missions happening in empty space...

all the deep space encounters happen in empty space.

Oh wait, I forgot we're only allowed to hate on the game.

Yeah, grr, space feels so confined, and gold spammers and and and, it was down between the hours of 3am and 5am twice this week, bastards!
