Apparently there's been some issue about the launcher not getting updated. I have no idea if its related to your problems, but you can try downloading the launcher found at this link: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=505501

I've had problems too. Though, in my case it seems to be related to Steam, which is odd because I had the game long before I ever downloaded Steam. STO just magically appeared in my Steam library one day.

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

My problems over the past couple days seems to be a combo of lag, bumping into invisible walls, or having the character 'bounce back' (or just get pushed back a few feet in a random direction) when running. failed a couple PVP races because i just suddenly went backwards out of bounds. Seeing it on regular missions, in spacedock, winter event, etc. something on the server is broken...

This was just posted by Cryptic: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh....php?p=7401771

Hello Captains!

I'm excited to announce that we are going to be working with Denise Crosby on a TOP SECRET assignment. I'm going to try and get some of your Star Trek/ Tasha/ Sela questions answered, so... have a question for Denise Crosby? Leave them in this thread and I'll try and get them answered and posted in the not too distant future.

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=
I guess she's going to be doing voiceovers for either Tasha or Sela soon.

Yup. It's pretty much an open secret by now that she will be featured inthe next FE.
Maybe they tie the Enterprise C and Sela's fate together somehow.

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

I've been having this problem recently. It concerns the mission where you go to the Aelas System in the Alpha Centauri Sector Block, the mission you do when you reach Commander Level 23. Whenever I try to beam down to Aelas IV it keeps telling me that it can't transfer my character. Has anyone else encountered this problem, and if so what do I do about it. I'm registered through PerfectWorld rather than Cryptic, I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

^Problem solved. I just turned away from the system, went away for a few light years, and then returned to the system, and the mission played out fine. Don't know what happened.

thought to share with you fleet I'm in, and our fleet starabse, bit of a guide. Currently doing loads of dill trading, bought 15000 zen when it was at 86, now that is at 97 i am selling it all, doing zen/dill trades best way of making dill without spending hours farming.

When i started this game in October I only had 500 zen and 57000 dill, now well lets just say i am doing quite well.

- I'll check out that solution, thanks.

- Yes, I think it's be cool to have a FE with the Enterprise C.

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

I'ld like to introduce the a Chel Grett build I have been working on, the Hydra aka the 3-Set, 6-Torpedo Chel Grett Warship. This build is primarily meant for tactical officers who have maximum skills in Starship Project Weapons, Starship Projectile Weapon Specialization and Attack Patterns.

Fore: Romulan Hyper-Plasma Torpedo, Breen Transphasic Cluster Torpedo, Experimental Romulan Plasma Beam Array, Rapid Reload Transphasic Torpedo
Aft: Breen Transphasic Cluster Torpedo, Kinetic Cutting Beam, Omega Plasma Torpedo, Rapid Reload Transphasic Torpedo
Deflector: Polarized Parabolic Deflector Mk XI
Engine: Supercooled Combat Impulse Engine Mk XI
Shield: Dielectric Oscillation Resilient Shields Mk XI
Engineering: Zero-Point Energy Console, Monotanium Alloy Mk XI, Neutronium Ally Mk XI
Science: Assimilated Module, 2 x Field Generators Mk XI
Tactical: 3 x Transphasic Compressors Mk XI, Ambiplasma Envelope Mk XI
Boffs:
  1. EP2S
  2. TT1, APB1, T:HY3, APO3
  3. TT1, T:HY2
  4. EP2S, Aux2SIF
  5. HE1, HE2, TSS3 (or GW)
Doffs: 3 x Projectile Weapons Officers (Purple), remaining 2 doffs of your choice
Power: 50/100/25/25 (83/114/57/38)

It is an expensive build, that combines the best aspects of three item sets: Romulan Singularity Harness, Omega Adapted Technology and Absolute Zero. The end result is a very impressive torpedo boat that is high on damage and crits very often. Set all weapons on auto-fire and what you have is a torpedo boat that continuously spew deadly torpedo after deadly torpedo, both fore and aft.

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

What an intriguing build. I wonder if the Klingon Honor Guard/Adapted MACO space set would be good to use with it because of the bonus to torpedo damage.

Frankly, I doubt it. Torpedoscorts usually perform terrible, maybe even worse than Beamscorts.
Got any parse?

Survivability-wise: on one hand you can run very high Shields, on the other hand you've got a weak Shield & Deflector.

Mobility-wise: well, Combat-Impulse Engines on a .18 Impulse mod Ship must be quite sluggish.

Edit: as said above, the KHG set (Engine&Shields, no need for the mediocre Deflector) would be highly advised over the Breen set.
The Breen set is beyond terrible. Even white generic MkXI gear is better.

For comparison, here's how I set up mine:

1. Weapons:
- Fore: 4 Fleet Advanced Antiproton DHC Mk XII [Acc] [DMG]*3
- Aft: Kinetic Cutting Beam, 3 Antiproton Turrets Mk XII [Borg]

2. Gear.
- Deflector: Maco XII
- Engines: Fleet Advanced Hyper-Impulse [Turn] [Spd]*3
- Shields: Maco XII
- Devices: Subspace Field Modulator, Shields Batteries, Deuterium or Engine Batteries.
- Tac Consoles: 4 Mag Regulators XII (sadly, only 1 is purple)
- Sci Consoles: 2 Field Gens XI (blue), Subspace Jump
- Eng Consoles: 2 Neutroniums XII (w/g), Borg

3. BOFFs (varying, but usually):
- C Tac: CRF3, APO1, CRF1, TT1
- LC Sci: TSS1, HE2, GW1
- L Tac: APB1, TT1
- L Eng: EPTS1, ASIF1
- E Uni: PH1

4. DOFFs: Warp Core Engineer, Warfare Specialist [Borg], Shield Distribution Officer, 2 Damage Control Engineers; all purple.
Thinking of switching to EPTS1*2 (losing PH1) and getting rid of the Damage Control Engineers for more Shield Distribution Officers.

Numbers? Well, there's a parse on the previous page.

Torpedoscorts are very viable. I run a Armitage with mostly torpedos.

In PvP I usually am among the top damage dealers.

However I think with torpedo builds becoming a fad thanks to all the Breen ships and Omega/Romulan torpedo weapons, people start to defend better against kinetic damage while not so long ago, every skill point and equipment went into shield tanking.

Am I the only one not excited about the Ambassador? It just seems silly to me at this point. I really liked the Oddy, as an anniversary ship, as it was very STO. But the Ambassador? Old and busted I hear there's both a T3 ship (where the Ambassador would logically belong) and a T5 ship. Maybe different?

At least I have some KDF toons this time. I missed out on the ship last year because I was so new I didn't have a second character.
