On this episode of The AIE Podcast,

– Nerds are running amok!

– Another SWTOR officer is in the hotseat!

– Come meet Ghomus in person!

All that and more coming up right now…

 We’ve got a great show today, with special guests Ratto Zatto and Capt Hunter  standing by to talk to us about Star Trek Online –  but first, the news…



A meetup in my own Backyard! Well, close to, anyways. There is going to be a raid on the Harry’s Hofbrau in San Jose, CA in 2 weekends! The time is not set in stone, but I know there are a few people in this area, that I’d love to meet up with you. Shout out to Oakdragon for trying to get this organized!


And it looks like Emperor Pellpatine, on April 1st, (no joke!), has put up another SW:TOR officer for you to ask all your crazy questions to! This month? Sema! Be nice folks!


Nerdtacular tickets are NOW available! Head on over to Eventbrite to pick em up! Keep in mind that if you happened to get such through Kickstarter you should have already gotten an email which will tell you how to pick up your tickets!


Speaking of Nerdtacular, it looks like Max (from last week’s show) and a bunch of others are trying to get organized for a Running of the Nerds! There were of course concerns that Salt Lake City IS at altitude (around 4400 feet!), so keep that in mind, but a few die hard folks ARE going to be doing at least a few runs while there!


Not sure if we want to call it a reboot, or if we want to call it a new chapter in the life of CapStable, but the podcast brought to you by AIEU has returned to the airwaves! Er…spacewaves? Anyways, if you have any interest in EVE you should check it out!


The ever-talented Andrew Allen, the composer of our new show theme, has reached the 15 day mark for his Kickstarter and he’s 83% of the way there! Tell your friends, we know how many people listen to this podcast, and how many of you like video game music! Support a Frogpants regular and get this album funded early!


And finally, we’ll end with a little rumors and scuttlebut. Apparently some details of Blizzard’s mysterious game, code named Titan, have been leaked. We don’t know how true it is, but someone who knows someone who might know something says Titan will be based on Earth history, and will include everything from modern weapons to magic, time travel and  heavy use of Greek, Roman, and Viking myths.


For more information on everything we covered in the news, you can find links in our show notes on our website at And of course, read the AIE Forums!


And with that, let’s welcome our guests, Ratto Zatto and Capt Hunter on the show to talk to us about AIE’s adventures in Star Trek Online



Hunter and RattoZatto introduce themselves.  Our positions in AIE STO.


How free is free?  We’ll explain what’s accessible. What’s Zen & Dilithium?


New expansion and that Romulans are like Panderians (Kinda, sorta, not really, except that they are).


Current state of the fleet and where we are with Starbase expansion.  Starbase level 5, tier 2 starbase unlocks, tier 2 tactical and science unlocks, tier 1 Recruitment unlocks and what’s on the horizon.


What end game content there is.  Special Task Force, New Romulus.  (plus the fact you can replay missions and the rewards scale with you, so high replay value)


Personal experiences (missions we particularly liked, memorable moments, etc.) In particular, the “Trekiness” of it all, from seeing familiar faces to walking the decks of places you’ve seen in the shows.


The Foundry (player created missions)



And that’s our show for tonight. Big thanks to Ratto Zatto and Capt Hunter for joining us! Next week we’ll be talking to Syrene and Huntsthewind from AIE World of Warcraft
