Well I managed to scrounge enough extra dilithium for a fleet module so 1 down 3 to go.

I think they broke the foundry becuase part of the way into a mission I stop getting drops and skill points and I never start getting them again no matter how long I wait to try again.

There's a point in the Foundry missions where drops and the like stop happening, so you can't just farm the battleship destruction missions for good drops all day. I believe once that happens you have to wait a day until they start back up again.

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

Wow...I had a weird bug. So i played for about a year as a paid subscriber about a year ago, and then quit a year. I wanted to start a new character, (I have only one Fed) but it said that would cost 600 zen to buy two new slots. So i *just* grinded enough dilithium to get 600 zen. About a week ago i started a klingon character, but it seemed too boring so I never got her past the tutorial. I was just about to spend my zen when i decided to delete my klingon, and loe and behold I suddenly had a slot open to get a fed. I logged out and logged back in to see what would happen, and my slot disapeered, and again it said i need 600 zen. So i quickly created another klingon character and then deleted her and suddenly i had a slot again, so this time i took it and now i have two fed characters.

And still have my 600 zen. Weird.

That is weird, sometimes when I log in it says that I don't have any characters...

I have to log out all the way and back in again to fix.

lol there's going to be a lot of exploding andorian ships over the next few weeks. I like to think of myself as an experienced STO player, but I'm not even certain I'll be able to make a viable build for them.

In the hands of the handful of really good players, such as Daizen, they'll be absolute terrors. In the hands of the remaining 99% of the playerbase, they'll be laughing stocks.

I see I'll be grinding for an Andorian ship...should take about a month. I looked at the upcoming stuff for the rest of the year, and I'm really excited.

I hope the game is doing well financially. I certainly see lots of people running around. On the flip-side, I read they couldn't afford to pay a voice actor $50,000 to come on board. Well, as long as the game stays up, I'm happy.

Who said anything about taking them into ESTF's or PVP? I'll just drool over it while doing my usual doffing run.

Dale, I stopped paying attention to Cryptic's financial status a long time ago. I think one of the things that keeps the game going is diehard Star Trek fans. No matter how bad things get, it's still a place for me to get my geek on.

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

Pretty much. The other side of that coin for me, though, is that they've burned enough of my trust over the last couple years that I'm really not giving them any of my money anymore. Paid for a 6 month sub, then a lifetime one, and talked myself into buying the Gal-X back when it was halfway worth flying, but not a penny since, and no real plans to. Anything I pay for, they'll nerf eventually and make me regret the purchase, so I'm cutting out the purchase part. If they're hurting for money, it's people that have made those decisions.

And they've made so many ways to get the in-game currency that only the stupid or lazy would bother to reach for a credit card at this point anyway, so not really sure where their money is supposed to come from...

Seriously considering getting a lifetime sub at the moment, although also looking at subscribing just long enough to get the 1000 day veterans rewards (I'm on 770 at the moment).

Personally I really enjoying the game at the moment.

Of course if you get the lifetime you get the vet rewards as soon as they come out. And I heard they might be considering doing more vet rewards.

Besides after a year your lifetime is paid off, maybe sooner if you keep subtracting $5 every month from the stipend you get so then you get all the sub perks without having to pay every month and free zen every month.

Yep. I think if they did another discount for lifetime subs I'd probably go for it this time (now I have the cash).
