Has anyone got the Klingon one yet?

I unlocked Klingon play last night. I might make one just for getting the ship now.

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.
I sort of feel unsmart now.

Flying? Turn rate for Odyssey is like Jabba the Hutt after Thanksgiving dinner.

Is there a trick to doing the Q event Klingon side? I talk to him and he doesn't have quest in menu.

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

I'm having some technical difficulty with a quest, "The Other Side". Basically I've played through the mission of going into the mirror universe and retrieving the Bajoran orb, killed the bad guys and their ships. The only thing I have left to do is to return to our universe through the portal.

That's where the problems began. When I enter the portal I receive a big dialog box that says "Couldn't transfer character" and get kicked to the character selection screen. I tried logging in and found myself still in the mirror universe, so I went through the portal again and yet again I got kicked to the character selection screen. As its quite late, I went to bed and this morning I tried logging in. This time, I'm in sector space but the mission still requires me to enter the mirror universe portal, so I tried to continue the quest and yet again "Couldn't transfer character" and character selection screen. Now, I can't enter the quest to complete it. What should I do?

I had this problem with another quest. I'm guessing this is a problem caused by the most recent update.

She's a smart kid. She's in gifted math, science and reading. Plays the violin and piano. Is a gold level swimmer. Plays tennis. Previously did soccer. gynastics and taekwondo. Speaks 5 languages including Latin. In STARFLEET International, she holds the Order of Surak 1st Class.

I used to think I was smart until she came along.

Your not joking, apart from the tac station which gave me access to cannon scatter buff, it takes away a tac console, that was about it.......plus i might be imagining it, but moving and firing seemed to drain power a hell of a lot quicker than in the old crusier.

Still it's free, will have a better look at it when the server goes back up.

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

I'm more impressed with the Odyssey than I thought I'd be. I like having two universal slots. I can see where a Tac or Sci might want to consider using the ship. A Sci character could slot 4 sci boffs. That would be interesting. It has one less Tac console slot than the Excelsior Refit, but a stronger hull and larger crew. For now, it's in my ship inventory and and I'm still in the Excelsior Refit (my engr).

Ironically, I heard a lot of characters complaining about the Odyssey. They didn't know it would be a cruiser. It's a Star Cruiser in fact. What's funny is its picture in the character gui is smaller than the normal Star Cruiser.

****

Added: I agree with Haggis and tatties. The power drain seems worse.
