Personally, I would have used this wikipedia page.

As someone who didn't know what aggro was till a few months ago, I focused on the first part of the post because it seemed like a legitimate question. I didn't get anything accusatory from his post. Snark, yes, but then I like that. Your mileage may vary, of course.

Apologies if my first reply was terse.

Ah. Got it. Doesn't seem like such a unique concept that it needs it's own terminology. Just another example of people needing exclusionary jargon to feel like they're more special than anyone who doesn't know it.

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

I really enjoyed the game from Feb 2010 up until Season 4: Misfire. Not only did Cryptic change up ground weapons and kit abilities (I found out later this effected my ground PvP to the extent it made it thoroughly unenjoyable,) but they also implemented the ridiculous ques for Fleet Actions.

Somehow that last change completely effed up my game, as any and ALL of my (20) characters who were in (my own) fleets became unaccessable. Anything and everything that is team/fleet related - even a request - sends my comp into a system crash.

So for a while I was able to play non-fleeted characters, then whatever maintenance they did in mid January just completely sealed the coffin, and all characters send the comp to the "blue screen of DEATH." Tried multiple times to get help in the forums and with tickets, but got no help, or bot tickets saying my comp was the problem. Oddly enough, Champions Online works fine. At one point, Storm Shade claimed he'd look into, but that was about 1 year ago this month.

You do the math.

So yeah, basically I went from loyal fanboy to disgruntled troll in a matter of days. I really do miss the game. It was my first MMO, the PvP matches were amazing and I had hours of fun playing it. Too bad it's just a memory now, but like Kirk says...c'est la vie...

Romulus, have you tried completely uninstalling STO, clearing your Internet Explorer cache, and then re-installing it? I've had corrupted files before that pass all the launcher checks, but cause the game to crash consistently when specific things are done.

Bran Flakes: "Even though this is an enemy species"

GRR! I hate those who label Tholians as an enemy species! HOW DARE THEY GENERALIZE MY ENTIRE SPECIES SOLELY ON ONE ENCOUNTER IN A PARALLEL UNIVERSE!

And I thought we were pretty tolerant. We gave the Enterprise the time they requested when they were in our territory. We have ambassadors to the Federation. We stayed out of the Dominion War. We even gave "The Sisko" our own valuable silk! Now we're branded as enemies? I disapprove!

To be fair, there is hardly any species that isn't a enemy of the federation these days.

Well, scanning fungi on an alien world would make for a pretty boring game.
