My main annoyance with the instances issue is when trying to team up for things like the Defera Invasion. You manage to find a team through zone chat, and you're all in different instances. Most of which are full, so you can't actually get together. And when people try to change to yours, it's full and not presented. You all then try to change to empty ones, which take a minute and sometimes fill up as you try.

Or you lose a team member, and you can't get anyone to join your (full) instance to replace them.

Been a pain in busy events trying to team up...
I had that problem the last time I played the Defari Invasion. Was assembling a team for the Hard mission - Knowledge is the Key and we were all in different instances. Two of us were in full instances so the others couldn't come to us. Had to find an instance with only a few characters and tell everyone to come there. Then after all that we discovered that the mission was broken...

The Defari Invasion used to run 3 times a day, west coast, east coast and europe. Not sure why that's been cut back so severely.

BTW, has anyone else encountered the goliath werewolf borg? That dude is tough...

DOFF system - Getting a critical success used to give 500 or 1000 dilithium. I'm not sure if that's been nerfed yet. Normal payout is 5 dilithium. There are three things that you want to look at when assigning DOFFs to an assignment, their rarity, their specialty and their traits. Most players favor stacking for a critical success. Look for the DOFFs that increase both the success and crit success rates. You can experiment by slotting a DOFF then highlighting another one on in the roster and clicking "swap...". XP for the DOFF assignments has been nerfed quite a bit since inception. According to Heretic, it's been nerfed 5 times. I think that they should take out the XP rewards and just give appropiate commendation points. Of course I can say that since most of my characters have already benefited from the generous XP payouts. :-P

Anyone know what the bortaS (which is how they should have spelled it) will look like?

Thanks Amasov. It kinda reminds me of a Terran Battlecruiser. Except it's green.

Looks like a beefed up Negh'Var, which looked like a beefed up Vor'Cha... Starting to think Klingons are overcompensating for something.

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

Congratulations....
Have you played all the patrols as well? They should pop up when you get close to a system that has one. They are not given out by an NPC anymore like they used to.
They are quick and dirty one map missions mostly, but there are some gems in there as well....
Go and explore to find them all
If you are interested in the Diplomatic Corspe you should definitely get into the Doff System, because you can't ever reach Diplomatic ranks with the current 10DXP those missiosn give out. You need the DOFF commendation points for that.

The best diplomatic player missions however can be found on Vulcan, in the Bajor System, on Starbase 39 and Memory Alpha.

And if you like we, can introduce you to the Special Task Force missions (short: STF) which is dedicated group content, that requires more teamwork and tactics then any other mission.
The rewards are a bit grindy, but among the best you can get in the game for no money.

Ah, that could be Terradome, the only old school STF left in the game.
It is a fun mission that features the Undine.

The other 3, featuring the Borg, are split between ground and space episodes and only accessible through the PvE queue system. Same as the fleet actions, another type of group content.
