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

Just started playing this again with a friend (level 11 at mo) and I had the mission stop the gorn advance but I can't enter the Argelius system? I get no prompt asking me to enter it...

Any idea why?

I got T5 in both the Romulan and Omega reps.

I'm only a few Omega marks away from a full MACO Mk XII ground set.

Its possible you're at the wrong system. According to STO wiki, the only mission involving Argelius System is to pick up a passenger for Treasure Trading Station.

Perhaps if you can tell us the name of the mission you are currently on, we can point you in the right direction.

I'v dropped it now though might return to it, what do you get if you have a paid sub? do you think its worth it compared to the F2P model.

It really depends on how long you think you'll enjoy playing STO. This is the advice I give everyone who ask me this question: For STO, a monthly paid sub isn't really worth its cost. If you really want to pay, there are two good options.

1) Pay for One Month - It is just a single payment of $15 and in exchange you permanently unlock all Gold Subscriber benefits including larger bank and inventory slots, an account-wide bank shared across all your characters, more bridge officer and ship slots.

2) Pay for Lifetime - Its a huge sum of money, but very well worth it if you know STO is the game that you enjoy so much that you want to play on a regular basis for at least the next 2-3 years. In return you not only get all the Gold Subscriber benefits, you also immediately get ALL Veteran Rewards from the moment you pay Cryptic.

Btw if you choose this option, know that Cryptic routinely offer lifetime subscription at a discounted price twice a year. That's the best time to purchase your lifetime subscription.

So, today I got to teach three people how to do KAG. No E. That was an... interesting STF run.

We have to run a rep assignment to unlock the costume options now on the stf gear?

I agree with Intrinsical.

You can pick up the game client for cheap. I've bought the basic one for $3, the collectors edition for $8. Install it and it will give you 30 days of subscriber status. Installing both will give you 60 days. Then if you decide to go back to F2P, at least you have the bonus items and expanded options.

If you're going to buy a lifetime, wait until the price hits $249 or better, $199. The main advantage of the lifetime sub is the monthly stipend of 500 zen. If you're patient, you'll never have to buy zen again for the items you want.

I'm here to tell you that the Breen Chel Grett is a very nice ship.

This is the Silchas Ruin, the ship from which my Gorn engineer, Icarium, engages in his separatist actvities.



Running disruptor cannons on it right now, but I'm toying with the idea of a plasma weapon build.

Yes, its a good ship. I am in the process of equipping mine with Breen Set, Omega Adapted Borg Set, Romulan Singularity Harness Set and 2 Rapid Fire Transphasics. Its going to be a really sick torpedo boat.

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

One of those Breen ships saved my ass in a Borg encounter, very powerful. I have another question about the paid sub model, how much ZEN do you get per month in that model? Also can I just say the Zen thng is stupid, I wish the store was just real money micro payments and not buy Zen with real money and Zen to buy stuff.

Well, my main (Thalia) has added the USS Niflheim to her fleet:


And, quite frankly, I'm slightly dissapointed at the performance, though this is only a single parse (ISE):



6538 TDPS.
That's just about what I averaged with the Hermes-F (though I had one freak 8k occurence back in S5); which doesn't add up: this thing has one more Turret.

Don't get me wrong, the same DPS as the Hermes with more survivability (more Hull, potential for a 3rd Field Gen) and much better versatility (Gravity Well!) is nothing to scoff at, but on paper it should be slightly stronger.
On the other hand, the Speed is a good surprise: although it's supposed to be slower than other Escorts, the +5 Engine Power does help mitigate some of the Impulse Mod loss; in fact, I wonder if it's not faster!
I'll have to check (for future reference: 31 Impulse @57/25 Engine Power).

I haven't been able to login the last few days. The launcher never connects with the server. Anyone else experiencing problems?
