The Phoenix replica is the token we get from FC celebrations. Doesn't mean we we won't get an Akira refit or the Steamrunner.
There are still to refits coming and several new ships.

I guess its inevitable. Since this is a brand new ship designer, Cryptic's starting him off with ships that are not complicated and have little functionality so he can quickly learn how to hook up his ship models in STO's game engine.

Didn't Cryptic originally say the Phoenix was going to be a shuttle (we need more of those).

It would be fun. You could take it in the Borg Incursion and give them some payback for what they almost did to the human timeline.

I have heard that a T5 Akira is in the works.

Just fyi, there's currently a 20% discount on most items in the c-store, except for the Odyssey and Bortasqu ships. As a result, the dilithium exchange has shot up and is now fluctuating rapidly between 270 to 280.

Anyone know if the phaser relay consoles improve the spinal phaser lance on the Dreadnought Cruiser?

Yup, the lance is improved by phaser relays.

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

Kinda disappointed by the First Contact Day stuff. Mission was pretty boring (just run and talk to 5 people), and you get a non-combat pet. Not useful, and we have SO MANY of those sorts of things that the bank is overflowing. And in most cases, afraid to throw it out, because it was a special thing and you can't get it again.

Really need to have a bank expansion to admit that the number of special stuff we're supposed to be keeping has overwhelmed the slots if you've played since launch.

The KDF Alphas mission was fun, though. Liked that one!

Lot of effort into First Contact Day for a limited-time thing, though. Hopefully the maps and whatnot are planned for reuse shortly. Would hate to see the time wasted on short vanity stuff while missions and other rework, bugs etc go ignored...

Well, Alpha is going to be a regular mission and Utopia Planetia already has been confirmed to become a Foundry asset.
I a just disappointed, that there is no exterior for it.

They have a bank expansion. It's 240 C-points.

Thanks. Gonna have to start stocking up on Phaser weapons to switch to for the Dreadnought Cruiser then. My Assault or Advanced Heavy Retrofit can get all those Polaron weapons.

Does anyone know of how to get over the ground attack glitch, where you're unable to inflict any damage yourself (turrets still seem to work), without leaving the map? Had it come up in Cure STF and didn't want to incur the leave penalty.

Ok, I'll once again demonstrate my stupidity. I just got myself a nifty little "pet" Phoenix. Now, what do I do with it? How do I access it?
Is this all that I am? Is there nothing more?

I'm sure this is another question that will be answered by "Cryptic hasn't finished that for KDF players yet," but does anyone know a good strategy for finding colonial missions to send Klingon duty officers on? I'm still ranked at level one (13,000/15,000) on that skill, when all my other duty officer skills are much higher.

Put the Pheonix in your Inventory, when you are flying around in space you can select it and "use" it. Where did you find the Pheonix? I've been all over the Sol map and Roamed spacedock and can't get to the utopia yards...
