As Timelord said, you'd likely have to level up to VA to be able to use it again. But, hey, at least you'd then have a third Tactical Console slot (which will by default have a Universal Cloak Console usable on the Tactical Escort Retrofit or the Dreadnought, but can be removed to open up the slot for a different console).

Okay so this hasn't ACTUALLY gone free to play yet, has it? Because I just tried to log-in and nothing. Maybe we should change the title of the thread to "Going to Free-to-Play Soon"? Because the title as is is very misleading.

This is pure supposition, but I'd lean towards thinking they would either go directly into your normal inventory or into the overflow bag (which would be accessible via the inventory screen).

While it is a bit buggy and rough, all the changes on Tribble already include some bits of new content.
Doff system is fun and oddly addictive.
*Addictive* would be an understatement. I haven't worked on any missions since acquiring the Duty Officers. I want to see how soon I can make CMDR just using the DOFF system.

Here's the link to my discussion of Duty Officers.

I hear you, but I say keep it as is. You can not already play live, but the Tribble test server has most of the FTP features and many of us play there and discuss them here.
If it helps, I expect the live transfer around December (pure guesswork on my part, could be as early as November as well.)

Thunderchild anyone?




Is it free (once you get you free ship token like my refit defiant class) or only way to get this sucker is to spend 1200 atari rip off greed credits.

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

Price is 800 C-Points and it is a T3 ship. There is no T5 you can use the skin on, you can use the Point Defense Anti Fighter console on other escorts though.
VA retrofit ships will become C-Store only with FTP and will likely cost 1600 C-Points then.
So if you have yet a free VA ship to claim, do it soon or if you want an account wide unlock spent the 1200 points now.

I would buy the thunderchild if there were a T5 Akira or if you could use the skin on the fleet escort.

They are a business. One that is going free to play. Which means they need to sell things to stay in business. Nothing greedy about that.

Character transfer (copy) from holodeck liver server to tribble test server has been enabled. Every player is allowed to transfer a single character a single time. So choose wisely, my friend.
This will give you a first feel for the upcoming currency conversion. For the first time you can see what your emblems, merits and bagdes will get you in dilithium.

1200 cheap-by-industry-standards let-the-developers-feed-their-children credits. Fixed that for you.
