Master Keys haven't shot up in price like they have in the past. Unfortunate for me - I spent all my EC on my main to get keys early to sell at a gain I guess between the low dil:zen price and the key sale, people aren't wholly depending on the Exchange for keys.

Also, it seems the boxes drop less. Probably not true, but maybe. I did two combat missions and a couple STF's, and only got one box. Heck, I've only gotten 20-30 boxes total in the last month, when I used to be able to do that in less than a week.
I've gotten an average of 2-3 for each Featured Episode or Foundry mission.

Don't laugh. It's an Excelsior. It's just weaker than my earlier ship. I really bought it for asthetics rather than playability, since I always liked the Excelsior. Oh, well, I may just go back to my previous ship and chalk it up to experience. Better to waste fake money on this than real money on something important.
I've spanked my share of youngsters with my Excelsior. Of course that was before. Not sure how it handles against the newer ships that have been released.

The Ambassador is here at last, for free! All you need to do is play a new featured episode. Which probably means stat-wise, its going to be a crappy ship for end-game but I don't care. My "Ships bearing the name Enterprise" set is going to be complete!

New state of the games is out. Looks like we're getting a new featured episode and the chance to pickup a free Ambassador-class
ship!

My launcher is broken, too...

Big red acknowledgement on the forum pages about that.

Nope. Not tried yet tonight. Just saw it on the sto site.

How much better do they want to make it? It's incongruous enough that the Excelsior-class is better than the Galaxy.

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

Do we have stats yet?

AFAIK the going theory is still that the Ambassador will be a science mirror of the tactical Excelsior while the Galaxy is a pure engineering cruiser.

It is possible that Cryptic will release a better version with better hull/turnrate/shields/speed/universal stations/consoles and different flavors for tactical/science/operations, but then it would break away from it's niche.
The Odyssey is supposed to be the versatile cruiser (as the Vesta is the science flagship and the escort flagship spot is still vacant) in game while more exotic configurations go to lockbox ships.
I'd rather see another T3 fleet version of the Ambassador than a C-Store version.

Cruiser line:

Pure Cruiser - Galaxy Class
Weak flavor tactical cruiser - Sovereign (Galaxy Dreadnaught)
Weak flavor science cruiser - Starcruiser
Strong flavor tactical cruiser - Excelsior
Strong flavor science cruiser - Ambassador
Versatile tactical cruiser - Regent
Versatile science cruiser - ...
Versatile cruiser - Odyssey

It will be interesting to see which ship will fill the sister role to the Regent with a universal LC station and a science flavor in console slots.

Come to think of it, they might actually release a 25th century refit of the Ambassador to fit the versatile science cruiser role.

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

The Ambassador class is here?! Woohoo! Great day to play STO! I just won a Wells time ship, too! Seriously, I bought a key just for fun, unlocked one of my boxes and *bam*. A guy offered me 38 million right off the bat, but I wanted it for myself, and so the U.S.S. Sagan is now part of my rolling stock.

The SotG Dev article says Thursday 1/31/13. <--- That's when the mission voiced with Denise Crosby as part of the cast, will be added to the game, and any Fed character that completes it between that date and 2/14/13 will get a free Ambassador Class ship (KDF characters get the new Cryptic designed Battlecruiser they posted about recently.)

Ah, thank you. Let's hope, Cryptic sorts out the launcher client problem or many players will be pissed to miss this Chance.

Edit: Mine seems to work again already.

They reported that the problem is fixed earlier today. So there shouldn't be any further launcher issues.
