Wow, no idea. If you run the mission again, does the same thing happen?

Left the mission, and was able to restart half way through. Went to Hobus 1 again, started battling the Sithesh again.... same thing happened. It disappears for a few seconds, returns but is 'stuck' in the map border. I can lock on weapons. But they just won't fire. Weird thing, the Sithesh CAN fire at me.

Sometimes there's weird glitches. Just have to exit out and go again. It will usually take you back to the last checkpoint, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and do the whole thing over again.

Unless that's what you've done; then you just have to put in a ticket, and maybe wait until it gets patched or something. I had to do that with the second Cardassian mission - it would drop the mission when I switched maps.

Its pretty clear people are already cashing out their EDCs and salvage for dilithium. The Zen-Dilithium rate is rising

Great. Just what I don't need it to do.

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

There didn't seem to be any change in the dilithium exchange this morning. I cashed in my daily refining amount and got 51 zen for just over 8000 dil. The rate was 158, and has been swinging between 158 and 160 for some time now.

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

I'd expect that. While we're going to see an increase in dil from the STFers cashing in before the change, the there's still a lot of fleet stuff going on, and as fleets advance there's just going to be even more of a sink for dil. Plus, they're likely saving a bunch, as we're going to need it for the S7 stuff.

There's not really that much of a dil increase anyways - just a lot of folks are going to have tons of ore sitting there, waiting to be refined, as they're probably the folks that get 8000+ a day easy.

In other news, I heard that having more toons is a good way to make lots of zen (if one has the time, and I have the time), more than worth buying more char slots. For purposes of RP, I'm going to try not doing any of the story missions (at least until I can get mk x-xi stuff from them) - my main already is the big damn hero, you know. I wonder how that affects leveling speed. We'll see.

Yup, I have 7 toons so far and they net me a minimum of 13,440 dilithium every day just doing foundry quickies (1,440x7 dil) + answering historical questions (480x7 dil) at Starfleet Academy or KDF Academy. Best thing this just requires half an hour every day.

What are those foundry quickies that you speak of?

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

Go to the foundry mission search thing, and do a blank search under "Hot." There will be some that "Fed SFA Quicky", or stuff like that, usually right on the top of the list. There's one for the academy, the main base (ESD or First City) and DS9. Probably others too, but that's all I've looked for. There's three for each area, so you just sit there and scan one place, for three little missions, bam you're done, 50 fleet marks and 1440 dil richer. There's also some expertise too. And if you don't want dil, you can get an item.

On a completely unrelated note, I started a new toon (my second fed) and went to do the training mission for the charity guys...and after 50-60 Delta Velanis missions, still didn't get one. Funny enough, the very first mission I did at lvl 1 (besides the "grab your stuff" ones) was an Aid the Planet or whatever those were. I had donated some gear from another toon to sell, so I had the EC, but that was pretty lame. And even lamer that I haven't finished that mission yet.

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

They are a set of three extremely short player-made foundry missions that can be completed in one shot by pressing a single button, hence the name "quickie". There's a set at every major port of call. You can find them in the foundry by searching for "esdq" (Earth Spacedock), "sfaq" (Starfleet Academy), "ds9q" and "kdfa" (KDF Academy).

I usually go for the SFA quickie as its very close to the history question lady and I can quickly do both and net 1,920 dilithium, 50 fleet marks and some expertise in under 2 minutes. At the same time, I can also grab doff assignments from the nearby personnel officers, killing three birds with one stone

@The Royal Family: I haven't restarted the whole mission yet. I'm going to restart from where I am one more time, then if it fails, I'll leave the entire sector, and re-accept the mission.

@Timelord_Victorious: Thanks, next time I'm online and get stuck, I'll see if your online.

Okay, I feel like a noob. I've tried several of the quickie missions and get nothing for them, no exp, no dil, nothing. Doesn't work on any of my toons. What am I doing wrong?
