The look of the ship with the fleet pylons remind me a little bit of Perpetual's Excalibur-class Enterprise-F.

I'd just like to say happiness is a brand new video card.

Indeed. And a new processor. And more RAM.

Shadows and bloom still kill me, though. Good thing I don't like bloom, and the difference between High and Medium shadows isn't that much (at least in space).

[QUOTE=Crimelord_Insidious;8746498

...

It's not about roleplay... it's about looking at nice features while playing [/QUOTE]

LOL, the last toon that got me excited was Vampirella (circa 1969). Although Holli Would and Jessica Rabbit are honorable mentions...

On the serious side, I created a female character on LOTRO just because it fit the character better than being male. It's difficult to play because as soon as the char steps out, she's surrounded by weirdos. If I create a female char, I don't go out of my way to make her sexy, but it still draws too much unnecessary attention. Just my experience.

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

I have both male and female characters in STO, pretty much equal amount of both
I tend to think about the background story of the toon before I create it and that sometimes determines the gender then or at least play a part. I rarely write that story to the profile, though I have been planning to do that later still to some of my toons.

The Avenger seems smaller than I thought it'd be:

I just got an Avenger battlecruiser. It is quite impressive. I got 3 dual heavy phaser cannons, 2 quantum torps in the front and 2 phaser array and 1 phaser turret in the back. The frontal attack is awesome!

Just what did they fix in the Foundry? I don't see anyone talking about it on the forums or anything.

And with today's patch my inability to play the game is resolved. Wonderful.

Well I picked up the Avenger today and am conflicted on whether to use it on my main fed tac character or hold it for when I make another fed character and stick to my Vesta.

Have you guys seen the "Klingon Intelligence Files" on the Voth? That document read like they've been written by a human, its an immersion breaker for me.

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean.

Thought the same thing.

It's like they wrote it and then decided to throw the KDF a bone by making it their report instead, inserted the word warrior a couple of times and called it a day.

By the way, anyone here use opposite gender characters?
My Fed and Klink are male, but when LoR went live I made my Romulan female just to mix things up a bit. So far I haven't run into much creepiness. Less than I expected, anyway.
