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

Thanks I'm thinking of buying some more slots at some point to get a Galaxy class as well. It's one of the few I really feel I'm missing. It just looks so fantastic, and there's not beating it in sheer scale!

I dunno, the Odyssey-class makes the Galaxy feel somewhat small these days: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7210/6...ee00e393_o.jpg

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

Now that was nice fun PvP.
I went into Ker'rat to find some Klingons and I found out just how good my build really is. It took 3 of them to kill me and they had to work for it.
Two I could take on and even managed to destroy them from time to time.
Sovereign is just that awesome.
Doubt I could have done that with the Odyssey. To compensate for the aweful turnrate I would have had to get more heals and sacrificed DPS.
And then a stalemate would have been the best possible outcome.

Now where is my Sovereign Refit with that Rapid Burst Torpedo launcher the Enterprise used in First Contact?

One thing I never understood was how a torpedo launcher that fired four at a time was considered rapid burst? The Enterprise-D was capable of firing multiple torpedoes at once: http://youtu.be/H_XbWq49vUM

Awesome!
And yes, the FC Sovvy would be a godsend in this game.

So, I spent (an aggregate) two hours today trying to get my build and Boff balance up to something I could appreciate, and I think I've done it. I was in Ker'rat a while ago, and took on a Tac Odyssey, and a BoP. Anyway, so they start tearing through all of these other players, and me being one who likes to foolishly step into such things, but also wanting to test my new setup, decided to take him on.

At first, it was myself and three other ships against the two of them, but eventually, everyone else left except for him and his BoP friend, and for about 10 minutes, we just fought back and forth. Finally, after blowing up the BoP (who never returned), I got him down to his last few points, but then he sped off, way out of weapons range in a split second. Still, I did it!

So, my DPS is about what it used to be, my defense is back to at least what it once was, and having survived this PvP match, I can honestly say I'm satisfied with the results.

The Galaxy class is a popular one, but I've never liked it. In fact my free Galaxy Refit has never been taken out. You do have a few choices though with the Galaxy, Refit, and Dreadnought. Plus the Nebula/Nebula Refit is it's Science sister. I've also seen some successful Galaxy tanks.

Well, I'm more of a fan of the Galaxy. I've always liked the look of it. The Nebula is an other favorite. The Odyssey, while an intresting ship in some ways, and certainly full of potential for some nice build what with it's capacity, is a bit too derivative in it's design of the Sovereign in my opinion. The Soverign was such a new design compared to the Galaxy class that I feel the Odessey as a new flagship, didn't break the amount of new ground that I would have liked. The split neck is a good element though.

Seeing them side by side really shows they are very different.
The saucer is arrow shaped and the engineering hull is nothing like the slim sovereign's at all.

Yeah I keep getting an Excelsior to the Soverign's Connie vibe from it.

I flew my Excelsior next to an Odyssey yesterday, and it looked like an AMC Gremlin driving next to a semi-truck.

Cool, thanks. My level 1 and 2 transwarp abilities appeared as soon as I reached the appropriate marauder rank. I think.
Well, nothing. I got L3 Diplomatic and there's no transwarp option for Sierra-39. I guess I'll have to submit a ticket, which means I'll never see anything come from it.

EDIT: It just now appeared. It's listed as "Starbase 39 Sierra"

You should try the Defiant next to it

Glad it's working for you!

Some internet searching shows that I'm not the only one with the problem, but developers say that it'll take a lot of work to fix the issue. I submitted a ticket, which vanished, without any change. Hooray.
