I personally wouldn't bother trying to make a cruiser turn 'fast'. Put Beam Arrays on the front and turrets on the back (to keep the power cost lower). Include one or two Eject Warp Plasma abilities ready for any snipes that try to tailpipe you.

Now having said that, I suppose that having an agile cruiser could be fun to play. Depends on what you're trying to accomplish.

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

It's a while ago since I've flown it, so my memory may be fuzzy, but I had a few RCS Consoles fitted to a Vor'cha on my Klingon Eng character, and that was quite fun. Not exactly able to turn on a dime, but it could usually keep most ships in it's front 90 degree arc, and I used Eject Warp Plasma (and maybe Tractor Beam, can't remember if I had that) to keep the really nippy ships a tad slowed down so I could pummel them.

Is there an issue with the mail system? I've seen some folks complaining about it here and there, but nothing specific. I have noticed that I can't delete stuff; or rather, that the stuff I delete doesn't get deleted. Is there something more?

There is now a 100 mail limit in your inbox. For people using their mail as storage, it suddenly means they have no more space to stash stuff. Plus, with no ability to delete mail, someone has apparently been spamming email to intentionally deprive people of mail space.

Yeah, the email system won't let you delete anything at the moment.

Good news, Cryptic is finally getting around to bug fixes. The first batch hit Tribble already, expect more for the Holodeck patch on thursday.

I was wondering if I was just that bad at the game. Probably died about 20 times slowly wearing down the command ship.

FYI...

A few months ago some folks were asking about the lifetime subscription. They are currently on sale for $199 (US) which is just about what 13 months of subscription costs.

Not trying to push the subscription, just letting you know incase that factors into your longterm STO plans.

If you are Romulan (Reman doesn't count) or high in Diplomacy(Marauding you can recruit an NPC on the Romulan mining colony in Mine Enemy as a pretty good rare medical doff.
Find an NPC called Rai close to the beam in point and talk to her.
Her special power is extra healing for copper based blood lifeforms.

I wonder if that works for former Borg Romulans too.

Yep. She's already a valued member of my crew.

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

My KDF engineer is loving the new traits. The one that gives bonus power to all subsystems when using EP2X skills and batteries...holy smokes, I'm in a nearly continuous state of 100+ power in EVERY subsystem. It's crazy. Some power from equipment bonuses, some from console bonuses (plasmonic leech), and skill point allocations.

Does anyone have tips on a good shuttle build? I've been trying that "save floating city" fleet action but my shuttle's beam array and torpedo keeps missing the enemy fighters.

Weapons with [Acc] modifier.
You can also modify your accuracy with a trait respec or with skill points.
If that is not enough, slow them down somehow with a tractor beam or a console based plasma.
