They have added female android and all department versions at the end of 2012.

I also got my Ambassador class ship although I doubt that I will use it much. The mission was better than was in the near past.

I made sure to rerun the mission and get a spare Ambassador retrofit, too bad these things are bound to character I could pick up some extras for other characters in both commander and Rear Admiral if they were bound to account.

It is not a complete uniform. Just a belt and shoulder strap unser chest gear.
The Intention is probably to wear it with the TNG uniforms.
But they forgot the cuffs and collar modifications.
Thanks for the info Timelord_Victorious!

Just speculation which i can't test, as I have the TNG uniform unlocked account wide.

Is there anyone where who never unlocked it before and got it from the mission?

Just tried. I wasn't given the TNG uniforms. Just the Yesterday's Enterprise belt and chest gear.

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

Well after being locked out of the game since the "end of Winter Wonderland" patch, I finally got frustrated enough to uninstall and install from dvd. Still took 3 days of patching after the install. Just finished, so I'll check out the mission tonight.

The strange thing about the install was that it asked for my key. Luckily I didn't chunk that after the original install in 2010. Don't understand why they wanted that anyway as I'm a lifer...

What's wrong with the android? I claimed it before but didn't bother putting it in my crew as the crew is already setup the way I like.

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

I'm finally about to start playing this game. It's taken over half an hour to get a name - naturally everything Star Trek-related is gone, including names from the books and weird combinations like JadziaTuvok (the names of my cats). Hell, even Ebola is gone - not only that, but Ebola 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 as well!

Oddly enough, JJTheTraitor is available, but I suppose that may not go over well with some...

The game seems to prevent close-sounding names. I found that if I played around some by adding random numbers for a while, then came back to the name I wanted that it would let me have it.

Apparently I missed the update, long since given up hope. As of about 2 weeks ago, nothing wrong with them at all. For the past year and change, however, they were promised to be available as male or female, and in all 3 specialties. The excuses bounced around a lot, but result was we were stuck with male engineer only, and only just fixed. Now you can have whatever you like

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

There is no restriction on character names already in use, same for ship names.
Any restriction you encounter there is for iconic names CBS/Cryptic doesn't want players to use or for profanity and stuff.


The @handle name however can on only used by one player as that is your Cryptic account wide adress. Even if someone in Champions Online or Neverwinter Nights uses it already you can't have it for STO.

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

As a relatively new Trek fan, would this game be right for me? It seems very fun, but I'm just wondering if you have to have an abundance of Trek lore to be able to understand.

In addition to that, what are your thoughts on the game?

Just try it out. It is mostly fun.

There are many canon references you might not get if you don't have an overall knowledge of Trek, but Cryptic plays fast and loose with canon anyway, so outside of references you won't be lost.Just treat it as a space shoot-em up with ground bits and you are good to go.
