Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

I've tried out the free to Play version on the Tribble and for the most part I've enjoyed it so far. There are a couple of things I'm concerned about though:
  • I'm really not sure about Dilithium. While I didn't have any issue purchasing my second ship, it does seem to only be available on some of the more boring missions (IMHO). It'll be a grind to get an additional new ship or special weapons.
  • I don't like the new mission progression. One of the nice things about the old mission progression was that you could skip a mission if you wanted. With Lex I played them all, but with Foxton I deliberately dipped in and out, choosing instead to progress via other means. I do like the new interface though.
All in all though, I am liking it for the most part. However I am now unsure if I'll go free play or lifetime next March (but that should give me plenty of time to decide)
