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

I try and keep a certain level of realism to my toons - Sierra uniform seems like a logical "future" outfit and I mainly go for late 24th/early 25th Century ship designs when possible (Luna, Prometheus, Intrepid, Sovvie). And disable armour and ship visuals - hanging out with a ship that looks like it's nearly full-on Borg assimilation or wearing the "plastic pyjama" body armour doesn't do it for me.

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

^For me, that depends on the character i play. My science captain would never turn his Luna class explorer into an abomination using Borg technology.

My engineer, on the other hand, is very enthusiastic about his work. So he flys an old Excelsior because it was an engineering marvel and he pimped it with Borg tech.
He also has a hologramm of those romulan borgified Mogai in his messhall simply because he respects the level of engineering skill that was put into it.

On the matter of the new STF grind:
I'm glad I already got all the equipment months ago. Even my Boffs are decked out in Omega and KHG gear, two of them even MK XII.

I hate hearing that crap on another player's ship. It makes sector space so bloody LOUD. And those Mugato pets. I want a button to be able to mute the audio on those damned things. I don't care about seeing it so much, but I do not want to hear it.

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

Meh, I'm only slightly annoyed by the B'Tran nerf. Of course this is mostly because I'm thinking of starting a new charater and the dilithium price tag and price increases on Doffs is kind of annoying, I mean if revenue is so important why not just offer better Doffs in the Zen Store, I mean they do know thats there to offer stuff we want to buy right.

I think they should rename it STO:Farmville In Space.

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

Anyone got a good breakdown of how much STF loot (tech, salvage, EDC) to hold onto vice change for DIL to get a good balance without too much diminishing return?

Or better yet, a link to the rumored charts on the STO forum?

having a hard time figuring out what to do with mine (i.e. how much to hold onto), need to plan it out a little by tomorrow...

20 EDCs seems to be a good value, that's equivalent to 10 elite STF runs and will net you 1,500 Omega Marks, 8 Borg Neural Processors and 1,000 Dilithium. Under the new system, 10 elite STF will net you around 1100 Omega Marks and 10 Borg Neural Processors, so its just a little under the break-even point.

worth keeping any tech or salvage, or are they screwing us on those badly enough to just burn them all for DIL?

Prepared or not, Season 7: here we come!

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

I'm wondering how I'll find the time to get all 7 characters through both the Omega Force AND Romulan reputation system. And support fleet projects too.

I stopped wondering that, when S5 rolled around and put all eggs into one basket.
Been a lot easier since then.

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

I'm just sticking to grinding 2-3 toons up (which shouldn't be that difficult)

I've already met all the resource requirements for the first tier for all three of them. Cost about 440550 EC in total.

For the first tier in both reps, it should take 1 elite STF and 1 Romulan daily patrol (not counting the leveling up project of course).
