I thought everyone who completes OT8 is assigned the post of OT Ambassador with the purpose of preparing themselves and others for the release of OT 9&10.
This has always been true.
Where's the news?
Good point, also I really don't believe that DM would trust anyone to do it, it wouldn't have been left by Ron so it would be new tech and there is no one that DM would allow to do that. If they could just invent tech like that they could be the new Commodore and kick DM out. He would have to OK it and he would have to do almost the entire bridge before he would be able to even look at the materials.
A) it won't happen and at some point people will realise, after redoing the bridge a zillion times or
B) it will be pretending there is tech that there isn't, and the few people that survive long enough to get on OT9 will just tear up their certs and demand a refund.
Either way it would be out KSW.
