StormShade Interview | STOked 69

This week in the world of STO, the developers have gotten around to righting a few wrongs that have persisted since launch. Tune in to hear the tweaks that will make everyone a little happier!

And then, in the interest of making you even happier, we’ll have a heart-to-heart interview with Cryptic’s Online Community Rep, Shaun “Stormshade” Brodie.

And last but certainly not least, Cryptic launched the highly-anticipated first mission in a new series of Featured Episodes, and the boys from STOked were there to give you their hands-on impressions of “The Vault” from top to bottom.
