Okay... I'm being lazy and don't feel like reading 51 pages of comments... What is the trekbbs fleet name? I've been playing STO a lot lately and thought joining a fleet might be fun. My STO character is Miranda @ BoxWhatBox if someone could send me an invite.
I thought I recognized that name. You just bought a Plasma Turret Mk VIII [Acc] from me in the exchange for 70k energy credits. lol

Yeah... The price was a little high, but I wanted it for my Escort. Plasma weapons w/ plasma boosting tactical stations, shield boosting science, and ablative armor. All uncommon, all level VIII. She's a good ship.

I sell my common for 10k, uncommon for 20k, and rare for 30k.

The fleets called the TrekBBSArmada. Next time I'm on I'll add you if someone else hasn't done it already.

Sorry. I usually do a search and see what other people are demanding for the item and price mine a tad lower than them. The cheapest I could find was 75k, that's why I priced mine at 70k.

If you like, I can craft anything for you so long as I have the materials available.

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

Exchange 101 for Dummies (or Noobs)

Don't use the Exchange to transfer items between your characters. I see a lot of Noobs (I assume) posting valuable items for 1 or 100 ce, thinking that they will just logout and back in on their other toon and purchase it. Wrong! Someone else will snatch it up first.
Anything that could be sold on the Exchange could be mailed instead. Just enter your handle and send it to yourself.

You can use the Exchange to transfer money between your characters. Post something cheap (like a tribble) for the amount that you want to tranfer. Try to pick an amount that will be easy to located when you do a search. Log out and then log in with your character with the cash. Purchase the item and you should almost immediately get an email that your item sold. Log out and then back in to your original character and he should have the money. Example: To transfer 1 mil from Doc Lee (rich) to Jho'dig (poor), Jho'dig posts a tribble on the exchange for 1 mil then logs out. Doc Lee logs in and purchases the item, then logs out. Jho'dig logs in and has 1 mil credits.


You can also use the Exchange system as temp storage. I'm sure that Cryptic did not intend for players to use it that way but it works. When you see an item posted on the Exchange for 999,999,999 credits, someone is banking it. They've set the price so high that they know that nobody will touch it. The system isn't foolproof as I've had a couple items I was saving get purchased. Yes, it is stupid for them to buy my items when cheaper items are available but it happens. I can only assume that they thought my item was more valuable since it had a really high price tag.

Hope this helps. :-)

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

I've done something kind of like that, only the reverse. Common item that no one wants (aux battery for example) for high price to transfer credits over.

Thanks again for letting me tag along with the Fleet Action. I had lots of fun.

I am now an expert at getting blowed-up.

And thanks for the phaser, too, TV.

Yup, I had a great time last night with the two Fleet Actions... that is, until my internet connection suddenly cut off. I really need to change to a different isp soon.

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

So, appear to have found my first niche, as Defera Invasion guide. Did a couple successful runs with TrekBBS fleet members this weekend, had a good time. On yesterday's run, we cleared all of the areas well within the alloted time. I didn't get anything special in my bags, but think Bailey got 2/3 of the Borg arms, nice haul!

Anyway, on future runs, more than willing to take a group through if I'm around. Seem to have the hang of how to blast through them quickly and painlessly. Well, as painlessly as you can with the crappy way that zoning works for that event...

I've got a couple of them, can't decide if they are worth using, or selling for the couple million credits they are selling for on the exchange. Anyone used one? How do they work/look? Worth losing the potential profit for?
