Are items you previously bought, like liberated borg bridge officers, no longer unlocked for the entire account?

As long as it was before F2P started then it should still be account wide. If not, you might want to submit a ticket.

All previous C-Store unlocks can be found under Legacy Unlocks.

Yes they should, most of what you had purchased from the C-Store prior to F2P should be in your "Legacy Unlocks" Tab (expecially if you bought the Enterprise Bundle or TOS Bundle) - except for some ships which will still appear as 'purchased' or 'available' in the 'Ships' tab on the C-Store window.

Why not swap out the Tetryons for another HD phaser cannon? Don't get the reasoning behind the rainbow, just hurts the power levels...
I have the Tetryons in there because of their abilty to disable shields. It gives me an extra chance of their sheilds dropping before the torpedoes hit.

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

having a right pain with the Captain's level ships... went for the cruiser as most people suggested, weapons aren't doing dick...

seriously... just got my ass kicked on a standard patrol against some reman ships, nothing even serious...

At least the Captain level ships start becoming interesting again. The CMDR level ships are the worst design, IMO. None of them were of any interest to me, just tried to blow past them and back into real ships again. Weak link in the ship progression.

Stupid Question, but are you running max power level? Also keep in mind that the Galaxy class has room for so many beams, they really eat into your power reserves. Good power management is essential for cruisers.
Second stupid question: are you running anything higher then Mk VI weapons?

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

I was going to wait my new computer, before I start to play..but my inner Trekkie was screaming "Play now"(Yeah, I had to scale down the graphics quite a lot but that is OK)

Now after playing this for the past two days, I am enjoying it a lot. The story lines are interesting..and all the familiar names and places warm my heart
Space battles are fun and ground combat seems fine to me, though I wonder why my officers like to run to my line of fire so much.
It took while to learn many of the things but luckily that is mostly part of the good times.

I made to Lt.Commander today.
It took along time to choose if to take an cruiser or an escort. I ended up choosing an escort, because of my characters tactical origin.
Though, I must say that most escort-ship types do not look very good, appearance vice. It Seems that cruisers and science vessels are generally better looking.
But I am happy of my ship anyway..and I love the turning rate and the firepower. Though little ship
I will maybe choose cruisers, when I make another character later.
