I may just have to dig my log in details out and have a look at this.

I like the new Romulan uniforms. Of course, improving over the canon ones wouldn't be difficult.

Interestingly enough they look like a greenish version of the jackets you could get during the winter event.

I may have missed something, but why can't I access a Romulan character? Is this only for folks who pay for the membership?

Romulans don't go live until some time in May.

I'm assuming well start a board fleet, too. I'm so in.

I just suggested 2 names for the Romulan fleet in the fleet thread.

Are there any advantages to a Tac character flying a tactical ship, and engineer flying a command ship...etc...?

Your career skills compliment your "career" specific ships, but there's nothing holding you back. Most of my characters fly mix-matched ships for versatility vs. optimization.

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

I just had an interesting experience.. I thought I knew the game well and could build a good ship. But I couldn't increase the dps on my Engineer's Galor beyond 3.7k dps.

So I had a friend take a look at my ship and he made a few minor suggestions. Replaced EP2Aux1 with EP2Weapon1, changed the universal boff station from science (hazard emitters and transfer shield strength) to tactical (torpedo spread 1 and AP:Beta1), made me take 6 points in Attack Patterns skills. Suddenly my 3.7k dps Galor is now doing 5.5k dps! I'm still somewhat reeling in shock at the huge boost in dps.

He has a few suggestions that he claims can push dps up to 7k, replace B:FAW3 with B:FAW2, replace APelta1 with AP:Omega3, replace my wide-angle quantum with a romulan plasma torpedo. Should I do it?

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

Sounds fine, especially the recommendation to put points in attack patterns, my personal recommendation though would be...

Stick 4x single cannons and 4x turrets on it (or 3x turrets and borg cutting beam), pref disruptors for the resist debuff. Cycle cannon rapid fire 1 & 2 and DEM 2 & 3 and you should have a pretty big DPS monster....

OR, if you're going to extremes, use this build:-

3x purple technician doffs (of the cooldown reduction variety).
Fore - 4x single cannons (or 3 cannons + torp of choice) (crtd and crth are good choices here)
Aft - 4x turrets (or 3 turrets and cutting beam if you have it)

Eng consoles - RCS, Borg, neutronium, romulan zero-point console (increases crit chance)
Sci consoles - 3x field generators or replace some with romulan plasma proccing sci consoles
Tac consoles - 3x energy type buffing consoles


Lt Cmdr Tac (preferably rare romulan tactical male boff as they boost crit chance and severity)- Tactical team 1, cannon rapid fire 1, attack pattern omega 1
Cmdr Eng - Emergency power to shields 1, aux to battery 1, aux to battery 2, directed energy modulation 3.
Lt Eng - Emergency power to engines 1, RSP
Ens Sci - Tractor beam 1
Lt Universal - hazard emitters 1, transfer shield strength 2 or torpedo skills

The 2x aux to battery skills will reduce all bridge officer powers down to global cooldowns, effectively meaning you have two of every skill. Two attack pattern omega 1's, two cannon rapid fire 1's, 2x RSP, 2x DEM etc etc. And yes, this is working as intended by the devs.

The cutting beam and borg console gives you the chance of a nadion inversion proc, for every shot of ALL of your weapons. Trust me, with the number of cannon and turret shots being fired, it procs a lot.

The Marion Francis doff gives you

That should get you to 9k.

Playable Romulan Faction? I'm in! Never was much for my Klingon toon, so I'll just delete that and use the space for the Romulan which shall be ever so superior.

Maybe we can get STO to add it as a uniform alternative.

Same here. I have a Klingon character, the most I played it was during the 3rd year event.

Yes, I do. It's required by law. Brannigan's Law.

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

I found this neat app on Google Play called Star Trek Online Guides;

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...RPX0d1aWRlcyJd

It's got tons of cool info, like dilithium farming, where to get cheap commodities, 'cheats' such as sequences like at Drozana Station, video guides, etc. I recommend it.
