What rainbow assortment are you talking about? Appears all Tetryon to me. Looks like 1 Fleet version, suspect the rest are the old Borg Mk XII versions.

Yeah, all tetryons of varying flavors including the Nukara refracting hyper-dual beam and a couple of phased tets... They come in another shade of blue.
The Nukara universal console is for all intends and purposes a tactical console that enhances my Tetryon damage as well, so losing about 10% base damage for more crit and enough turn/resist through the engineering consoles to keep up with lighter cruisers and destroyers make it a very fun set up.
No Borg weapons, though, the standard tets are genuine purples with mostly [acc] mods.

Here's an interesting article on the Duty Officer (DOFF) system:

I think (my memory is getting leaky) that the series is about dragons leaving Earth to travel the stars then returning and enslaving humans. It's written at the young adult level, but is entertaining.

I see the Romulan Republic haven't repeated the mistakes of Taris and Hakeev, by not blowing up their homeworld while trying to reach the Iconians. Admittedly, this isn't actually sending us to them, but I doubt they knew that beforehand.

In other news according to Geko, on a recent podcast, he mentioned that the space adventure zone is about the size of three sector blocks (which I think are actually split into three separate blocks) and that the ground adventure territory control area is probably just slightly smaller than New Romulus.

My goodness, the latest tribble patch is a massive 1.7GB in size. Be warned.

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

I just played The Breech on tribble. It involves taking out a HUGE Voth Fortress Ship.

Part 1 plays very much like Sisko using the Mirror-Defiant to attack Mirror-Worf's huge ship in Shattered Mirror. Kinetic Cutting Beam is a very useful for taking out hard points.

Parts 2-5 play out inside the interior of the Fortress Ship. Initially, the ship's layout can be a little confusing. But after a couple of play-throughs, you will know where to go. Big ships with slow turn rates may have some difficulty flying around inside the Fortress Ship. Voth cruiser's Barrier Field are a nuisance. Flanking attacks on them is the key, which means either a high speed, fast turn rate cannon escort or a ship with 360 degrees weapon coverage.

Notes for Part 4: Primary Power Core has 2 rotating shield that makes it immune to damage. Cannon users are screwed since you'll have to repeatedly move and turn the ship to get your cannons in the right position to fire. Broadsiders would probably have a much easier time by moving in big circle around the power core.

So I just tried The Breech. Only had time for one run.... it was kinda confusing... definitely taxing on my older computer... I'll be upgrading in a few months. Was fun though.

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

I seem to have developed a knack for achieving 1st place in Crystalline Entity elite while playing my Gorn in a fleet Tor'kaht. Unfortunately I have also developed a propensity for neglecting to pick up the box of marks afterward. :/

I did that several time in another scenario until my daughter pointed out to me that I was leaving the reward behind...

I've been getting tons of purple equipment at least. Lessens the sting! But I think I've lost in excess of 200 marks. Aargh.

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

The new feature episode Sphere of Influence was very good. Good story, Michael Dorn, some great environment design. Quite enjoyed it. And I loved the special bridge officer powers.

Played it through twice with my Fed main to get both special items. The two piece set bonus (warp core and 360 degree antiproton array) boost antiproton damage, and as I'm using antiproton on my HEC, figured I'd try it out.

Not so sure about the carrier yet. Don't have space on that character to open the box. But I am leveling a Klingon science officer that might make use of it.

I totally intended to activate all of the dormant Iconian gateways in the galaxy and thus doom us all to fiery "demon" death, honest.

The new FE is very nice indeed
The story is quite good, cool maps and Michael Dorn did good job as Worf.
I really loved the references to TNG and Voyager episodes also.

The reward carrier is OK..but cant say that it is the best looking ship around.
I did unbox it to my main engineering toon, but doubt I will be flying it much right now.
