I would be happy seeing either Sovereign or Akira refit.

I'd like to see the Caitian Carrier but is it a Sci ship?

If Cryptic is releasing 10 or so new ships, it doesn't make sense to exclude the Ambassador.

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

New ships are always welcome to the game, IMHO
I just hope we also get some new bridges to the game sometime in the future..not to mention more content.
There is certainly lots of material to draw ideas from.

The mining event/mission..I do not think its that bad at all, beats the academy event certainly. Though it seems the amounts of ore you get are rather small. I did it about twice with one of my toons, so far.

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

I'd say an Akira refit would be most welcome, especially if it's a choice between that and a Sovereign refit, the escort selection seems a tad light at the moment in comparison to science vessels and cruisers. Perhaps with a small carrier function like previously mentioned?

From the sounds of it, I might be one of the very few who actually enjoy the mining mission...

It depends on whether "new" actually means 25th century vessels, or just new to the game.

Somehow I doubt it... Al Rivera is totally against the Ambassador. The only argument of his for the ship is to complete the Enterprise lineage. But so far he can't bring himself to let it in game, and then he won't make it anything higher then T3.

If you've read Star Trek Vanguard - Harbinger, is it possible to recreate the USS Bombay battlescene in the Foundry? Especially the bridge events. Thanks.

Epic fail on the STF front last night... 3 Cure Elite failures, and 1 KA Elite failure. The only EDC I got was from a Need/Greed loot drop. So frustrating - felt like such a waste of my time!! Will be trying Cure again tonight, probably around 8pm EST.

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

ohh owch...

i ended up doing a few this morning, nothing major, picked up 4 EDC's though, but no salvage sadly...

on the up side, i redid the Breen 'trilogy' mission set 3 times between the STF's and amassed over 1,200,000 EC's from selling the complete Absolute Zero set three times lmao

New "old" ships would be more interesting to me.

Hmm.... I'll have to try that Breen idea. I've been looking for a good way to make some extra EC's, aside from waiting for the Tour the Galaxy event, which never seems to be on when I'm online.

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

well the breen absolute zero set sells for 100,000 a piece... three pieces are pretty easy to get, it's just the middle mission with the puzzles and flying around the sector that takes time... i'd average it out at around 90 mins work for the three pieces, 300,000 for them, add another 100,000 or so for all the various drops you'll find around while doing them, and you can pull an easy 400,000 to 500,000 for 90 mins work...

That's the quickest way i've found of making EC's aside from DOFF missions... i'm close to 10,000,000 now, probably aiming to hit 20,000,000 by the weekend if things go according to plan

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

Eh, I make more off just scalping things on the exchange. I've got a list of 4-5 items that are expensive sellers, and then just hunt for ones that are under-priced and relist them for higher. I flip the high-end AP weapons, the expensive ship weapon consoles, the shield sci console, a few others. every now and then, people list them for what the 'value' is, rather than what they are selling for, so it's an easy 100k markup at least.

And BoP, failed the KA Elite mission? Must have been a pretty epic shitty PUG! Easy to not get the optional if your group sucks, but takes effort to fail the main mission by letting 10+ probes through. 2 people can make sure you at least pass, while the other 3 fiddle-fuck around with trying to blow the gates. takes a while, but you won't fail. I need the MK XII from that mission, so keep trying it, and I always take the probe duty. kinda boring, but puts me in control, knowing that at least we won't fail because someone's a 'tard.

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

i keep trying to get my head around the exchange thing but haven't quite mastered it yet...

i tend to sell the big things there, like master keys and stuff, but haven't bothered looking into actually selling anything else there...

From the hints that were given in the interview...
- At least 2 ship models will be refits. Sovereign and Akira??
- One ship model *might* somehow be related to Star Trek: First Contact. Sovereign OR Akira? Playable Borg Sphere?? Vulcan Survey Ship??? Phoenix T5 Refit????
- One ship model will likely be a non-Starfleet carrier from a "Federation member race". Caitian Carrier?
- Apparently he has not been given the green light to start modeling the Vesta. Don't care, but others willbe heartbroken
- Chances of seeing the Ambassador will be very low. (based on his forum posts) About as expected as dumb.
Interpreted that a bit.
Yes but you see the Ambassador isan't as cool as the Excelsior and we all knows thats what really matters

You know the one thing that suprises me how people on STO's forums go on about the Excelsior being a popular ship when I know everyone hated it whne it fist showed up.
