Well after claiming my tribble rewards and and reward for the duty officer event I have two exocomps. Also I did not know the feds and klinks could get a Romulan Doff as a tribble reward.

Yes, that's also for testing on Tribble server.
I find it awesome. a Romulan explosives expert to be precise.

I do love the Tribble Doff rewards. The Android, Romulan and Exo-comp are brilliant (and for a time were my Gorn's only Doffs!)

I also think it's great that the DOFF event is giving us another Exo-comp!

Patched up last night and received a message to go to DS9 for info on the STF's. You also get a MKX purple gun that is Borg specific. More free goodies !! I also like what they did with Starfleet Academy and moving the Lore and DOFF mission contacts into one of the round buildings.

Some interesting items. I like the Romulan Explosive Expert even though it's a blue.

Thanks for reminding me. I went with a space weapon and upgraded one of my forward Plasma Beam Arrays to Borg specific. Ironically, just before that I saw the Borg incursion in every sector I crossed. After getting the weapon, I couldn't find the Borg anywhere. I even tried chasing REDALERT notices but the Borg would always be gone before I arrived. :-(

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

I was finally able to do a Defera invasion event. I did four of the single player missions, using the Borg MK X gun I picked up at DS9. It was pretty effective. This is the first time I've had an opportunity to play the Defera invasion missions on holodeck, and I just wish that they ran them a little more frequently.

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

It is quite a fun event. Have to say the Mirror Universe Event is somewhat insane! Though it did make an eventful mark of my promotion to Vice Admiral (still have half the episodes arcs to do though).

I'm wondering if there could be something for the Admiral ranks that allows you to run 'extra' ships kind of like the DOff system, where you can buy extra ships (or use old ones), select a captain from your BOffs, and send it on its way to missions. Hell, you could spend Starfleet Merit points (if they're still about, haven't looked too heavily at that kind of thing) when beginning a mission to be accompanied by one of your 'fleet' ships. That way, being an Admiral is more like an actual commander in the fleet, rather than a ship captain with a few extra doodats on his rank collar.

There was talk of a multiple ship command as part of the eventual Fleet Admiral rank, but at the moment I think that's just an idea and not something actually in development.

It's in Spacedock. I'm not sure how far you are in the tutorial, but it takes you right to it at one point. The NPC is there somewhere, can't remember his name since I haven't played in months.

It's in the spacedock. Go there and you will find an NPC who lets you switch out your ships.
