Free to play launch day! Hello new players! I’m Hav and this is Podcast UGC, the first and best podcast devoted to the Foundry and Star Trek Online. We try to introduce ourselves and our style during this show before we jump into our interview. And no, I’m not as “mean” as Terry and I make myself out to be in the show! I was just messin’. We hope you stick around and watch the show next week!

So our Captain Geko interview was somewhat epic. With a final runtime of two and a half hours, we opted to take a break for most of the show and let you simply listen and enjoy. Al Rivera goes into extreme detail on just about every question you could possibly want to ask, making this week’s show the most dev communication we’ve had in 6 months! I literally feel bad for Star Trek Online players who don’t give the interview a full listen.

Submissions for the Jem Hadar Ship Contest are done. We’ll be playing the missions this week and announcing the winner next week. Thanks for all those who made a mission! We hope you had fun.
