Gives a nice place to sink all those Prototype Borg Tech drops that keep disappointing me in the Elite STF runs. Better than nothing, but pretty much running all purple Mk XII Antiproton DHCs and Quantums now (with a pair of rear turrets), so running out of things to buy with them. Have started dumping them into making a cruiser beam boat with the spares, just to have something to put them into. Heck, my backup escort is running with a full loadout of the MK XI purples, got all the castoffs when i upgraded the primary.
You know what the really screwy thing is.

I noticed yesterday that a Mark XI Phaser sniper rifle does slightly more dps then a Mark XII Borg Phaser sniper rifle.

Poor Donatra, we took him out before he even had a chance to cloak.
He?

Here's the actress who plays Donatra:

This is not the uniform she was wearing yesterday. It doesn't even look regulation. (but should be...)

Did you finish your foundry mission(s)? I think you were working on Drake Must Die or something like that.

I had it done, but then Cryptic changed something that broke it, and I pulled it. I should fix it and put it back out there; haven't felt motivated in that area lately.

I asked this a few months before, but I'll ask it again: is it still impossible for Klingon players to complete the Gorn, Nausicaan, and Orion ground kill accolades? I have 1 kill in each of these categories (probably due to arena matches, but those are few and far between for Klingon players, although F2P has made them a little more common).

Unless someone creates some specific grinding missions in the foundry, there won't be a way (besides ground pvp KvK), I suppose.

Funny thing happened on Qo'nos today while I tried to RP for a name for my new ship.

"My fellow warriors! I need a GLORIOUS name for my new battle cruiser!"

"Executor?"

"Now why would I want a fed-de-ray-shun name for my ship?"

"Its the name of Darth Vader's own ship. "



After a barrel of bloodwine, I decided to christen my ship I.K.S Puqbe' vo' wo'
The Federation translation would be "Daughter of the Empire"

How do you get through deactivating the DS9 sensors with the Jem'Hadar ships shooting at you while you are trying to shoot at the work bees?

As with all bees, get rid of them quickly so you can work in peace.

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

I have a small problem.

I made a Klingon Engineer back during the Anniversary event and got him one of the Bortas packs.

I haven't touched him since. I'm going to have Miikka focus on some Diplo DOffs for a while so I thought I'd try him out in the meantime. Well it turns out I don't really care for Engineering, especially ground combat. It's just building stuff. I like shooting!

I could reroll him as a TAC, but then I'd lose the Borta (which I really want to keep) and from what I was able to gather on the forums, this game isn't real big on GM rare item swapping.

Any ideas?

Patience. They will eventually be in the C-Store. That's your only option.

Also, check your other Kit options. There are a few kits that debuff targets and buff yourself and allies instead of dropping turrets and generators.

According to this http://www.startrekonline.com/node/2898

It seems like what's stopping the Vesta from appearing in STO is licensing issues.
