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

Oh just to warn you guys, they're turning the field generator console (the one that increases shield cap by 35%) into a science console, along with the shield regen console.

If you've currently got them placed in the engineering slots, they'll stay there, but as soon as they're removed they'll only go in science slots.

This is going live tomorrow, just in time for the new flagships and their limited science slots. Huzzah!

I think that the field generator change effect Zylah the worst, Benefits Foxton the best and Doesn't make much difference to Lex, so it's swings and roundabouts.

Re: Fleet Bank
I planned on only putting a couple of lower level items in and based on the feedback I'll restrict it to Cmdr and higher.

One of my daughter's characters is a Vulcan sci/doctor. She's intergrated that character into some of her projects at school.
Interesting. Did she write an RP story about her or something?

[QUOTE]


She had to invent a new language and used the Vulcan in the backstory about finding the language in a temple on a planet they were exploring. On another project, she had to write several stories and the Vulcan was in one of them. The character is kind of her alterego from our Star Trek club. Thanks for asking.

My alterego is spread between two of my characters: Jho'dig (engr) and Doc Lee (sci). On one of the Star Trek "which character are you" test, I scored as a cross between Scotty and Spock. All other chars were created to test something and to my knowledge don't reflect my real character (or if they are, it's a much smaller part). Having said that though, I recently created a character to look like me for the thread that Methos started. Was considering deleting it, but might build it up to be me in cyberspace. Who knows.

Hartzilla - I get tons of those two types. Send a msg to @Rocketeer_7 with what you're looking for. (I never think to check this forum while I'm playing)

JRS - that is spooky. If he got assimilated, it might be an improvement. Just kidding. Oh, he might want to check his viewscreen.

I was hoping to pick up the new ships for all my characters. Now don't know if I'll get to play at all. Had something unexpected come up. If I'm lucky perhaps I can sneak on for a short while and claim the ship for the engineers. However, it will take something gamechanging to dislodge Jho'dig from his Excelsior Refit.

Well if you have some blue quality ones that would be great but I'm not to picky.
