FYI, after they fixed the mirror ships, it's as easy as it ever was now.

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

Well, PWE CS says I discovered an unknown bug (go me) and I should probably just recreate my character.

I wonder if the free fighter I claimed a few weeks back will be available to my new character?

As long as you're the same faction, yes. Those were all account-based. You just have to claim it.

So am I the only one enjoying the T'varo retrofit's destabilized plasma torpedo weapon and the damage it inflicts on unsuspecting targets?

Nope. Try shooting the torp, hit evasive but stay on course for target so you stay ahead of the red blob, lay a carpet of mines in your enemies face, hit singularity jump to get out of there before mines and torpedo hit.

I'm thinking of going to another fleet, guys. (Chorus: ''Basest treachery!''). Monsieur Timelord seems to be the only other fleetmate ever playing, and fairly infrequently at that.

Can ye recommend another fleet for a lonely soul lost in space? Almost level 20 now.

It's pretty sweet, especially when firing it off while cloaked.

Yeah. Fleet is in a bit of a slow spot. At the moment there is nothing to Do except the Crystalline Catastrophy Event.
That should change, once Season 8 launches.

I've been in a few fleets, including ones that have hundreds of players and have completely upgraded all fleet assets. Pretty much all of them are deathly quiet and it is caused by how Cryptic has chosen to design the game.

MMOs like EverQuest and World of Warcraft have multiple daily events that heavily encourages 20-60 guild members to participate in them. These events make members mingle and interact both game-wise and socially. That in turn encourages lively and friendly guilds.

Events like those don't really exist in Star Trek Online. Most of the game revolves around 5-player events played with strangers. Sure, there are a few 20-player fleet actions but again you can play those with complete strangers. As a result, fleet members don't have a reason to interact and socially friendly fleets are a very rare thing in STO. Fleet assets and projects don't really improve the socialization either, its mostly the fleet leaders trying their darnest to get members to contribute more stuff.

If you're looking for social interaction, try the DoffJobs channel. There's always a bunch of friendly and helpful players in there.

Yes, before you jump ship, try a few chat channels for socializing first in addition to this board.
If you are interested in accolade hunting I can recommend the channel Accolades.
It has a friendly bunch of people who also help each others ihr on Missions to get group accolades and stuff.
I use it regularly.
Staying in TrekBBS Armada has the advantage that you won't have to deal with any fleet politics and hoop jumping to gain access to benefits at least, since our members are not competing for resources.

Apparently the current Avenger-class Star Cruiser is being renamed to "Sentinel".

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

Thanks very much for the advice, lads. I think I'll continue to fly the flag, after all. I'm not ungrateful for the invitation; I just like some chatter while I play! I'll try the channels.

TV, what was that mission you mentioned that gives you the level 20ish ship again? Temporal something?
