Awesome, so any new info on the F2P? Like what will be available to the free players? (Races, Classes, Missions, Etc) I'm sure they haven't gotten all of it figured out, but there might be some info out there.

Guys, I'd like to do few Borg missions, who is in, come one ppl, Infection, Cure all wait for you brave souls.

BTW had funny encounter today, i ws waiting outside Siberian system looking for teammates for infection and there' was a team of KDF guys trying to get one more for their infection team, anyways I tried to join them, and one of them replied, But you are a Federation!?

I've replied, so what, are you some sort of racist to discriminate against the Federation (i know, i know kf and federation can't play same missions), it was just funny joke, and I thought to share it with you.

posted my latest vid, one of my borg missions in Sirius Sector, thought would be fun to see what I see when I am at the helm of my little warship. If you like what you've seen let me know by posting a nice comment on the youtube. cheers.

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

I didn't complain about the merging because the (sub) forum is called "Trek gaming", not "Star Trek Online gaming", so flooding it with STO-related threads was not a good thing.

I, for one, also play STA2 Fleet Operations, which is also "trek gaming" and any thread about it belongs here.

Oh, and Mr. Trek, it is possible that in March, as the F2P STO will be going full swing, you will not be able to purchase a LTS anymore. Now or never.

I'm considering reactivating my account in November-December to make sure I get the benefits of a paying account, but I possibly will make a second free-to-play account.

Possible but unlikely.
Following the Champions modell, which STO will most likely do as close as possible, they will continue to sell liftime subs. You can still buy them even a year after CO went FTP.

As Timelord pointed out below, it looks like Cryptic are following the Champions Online model for free to play (which they suggested people look at if they wanted to see when STO f2p will be like). If that's the case then it shouldn't be a problem.

It may not be as close as people think, though. In particular, Dan's expressed that the CO model of restricting free players from skills won't work for STO. We'll know more tomorrow.

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

F2P details are now live:

http://www.startrekonline.com/f2p

All content, classes and default races accessible to both tiers, Foundry editor restricted to Gold, Silver has reduced inventory, bank, character, and BOff slots, limited access to chat, in-game mail, Vivox and forums.

No date for the changeover.

The thing that I think is likely to have people up in arms - KDF will not unlock for new players until level 25...

I'm just crossing my fingers that the free to play doesn't cause huge problems. Wait and see I guess.

What are these boxes - cargo pallets/crates things? you get them when you play borg alert, what can i do with these? O yes and computer core fragments? any value in them, or should i just simply itch them for more space in my bank?
