No kidding. I have a hard time believing that people are actually still paying the monthly sub fee at this point. Anyone that's not a LTS and still paying has pretty much shown they won't quit no matter what, I guess...

Some news about the next veteran rewards:
http://www.startrekonline.com/node/2678

All great. The one sour point is still the screwed up 500 day reward.

Looking forward to my Android Boff, my exlusive ship skin, uniform and ultimately exclusive veteran ship variant.

Most of my devotion to the game is based on my love of trek in general.

I was hesitant to get the LTS because I wasn't sure if STO would survive. After STO goes F2P, I'm considering creating a free acct and temporarily shelfing my gold membership. Once I see how things work out, I'll either choose to keep the gold membership or convert it to F2P.

I plan to keep my sub going after f2p, mainly because it's so cheap (working out at about £6 a month as I'm on the pre-release annual) and over half that is paid back to me in C Points with the stipend.

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

As predicted I received enough xp from the DOFF assignments to make Captain (actually Captain 2). So basically I went from LC2 to CAPT2 using xp from the DOFF assiignments. I had a Borg incursion in there plus the one of the Klingon storyline missions. If a person was actually cranking out missions while letting the DOFFs run full steam, he could hit VA pretty soon. I'm currently running 23 DOFF assignments.

I got a couple of schematics(?) from DOFF assignments, Quantum and Heavy Disruptor turrets. Unfortunately they failed on the Heavy Plasma turret and went to sickbay for a while. I assuming that if they succeed in making the turrets that they will be similar to the Light Phaser Turret bonus item which is a tactical module.

If anyone is interested in trading DOFFs, I'm looking for Rare or Very Rare Tactical and Security DOFFs. I have some Engineering, Operations, Science, Medical and Civilians to trade. I'm also one short on Technician Engineers which I need for an advanced Impulse Engine.

If you're interesting in getting some common DOFFs, I sometimes purge them from my roster to make room for others. Just let me know.

[QUOTE=Hartzilla2007;5327702]Well they finally told us how much dilithium were are getting for hitting captain. It's 80,000. Though apparently we can onlky claim it on one character.

[QUOTE]

What does 80,000 dilithium translate to in game terms? Would it be better to claim it on a lower level toon instead of my VA? Thanks

Not really. You are still better off with drops and mission rewards to stick with in the lower levels. What you miss get from the exchange.
Save the Dl for endgame gear you will keep.

Soon my TNG expy crew shall be complete!

my exlusive ship skin,
(crosses fingers) T5 Exeter, T5 Exeter, T5 Exeter (what a guy can hope can't he)

It's probably based on the new material for the Enterprise-F and the +1 ships.

uniform and ultimately exclusive veteran ship variant.
I wonder what those will be.

Might as well give up that hope for a T5 Exeter. CBS has nixed a T5 Constitution in the past, apparently on more than one occasion, even though the game's lore with "modular shipbuilding" already provides a built-in excuse for all these "old" model ships flying around - and even though they allowed an NX "Replica" into the game!

Well from the most recent F2P blog fleet crafting may be viable again, since now crafting will use something made from dilithium which can be traded to other characters.

I didn't know this, but you can level up to max and get all the gear in a day!!! I think someone was misquoted on this. Stormshade said that with a six pack of red bull you can do the same in a weekend.

I'm carefully testing out for example if i can't use the dilitium exchange to get around the grind.
buying Cryptic points low and selling them again high.
So get my investment back and turn the profit into more profit to get the better gear...
Sad, that they make you a broker like this. but at least I can play what I want in the meantime without getting gated into the repitive content they want me to do.
I took a look at the dilithium exchange but was afraid to do anything. The help ? doesn't work. I can't tell if I'm trying to buy or sell dilithium.
