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

Personally I find every faction kind of the same. In the long run as you get to the higher levels, it doesn't really matter what faction you chose in my opinion. However, I did enjoy the Rom introduction since I started it after a break from STO, came back when I got the mail about the new faction, missions and such.

I hope they keep updating the game as they have done so far.

Also, what was the name of the trekbbs fleet? Would be interested to join.

Has anyone been able to get on today? I'm not going to bother if there's a queue - the game will still be there next week.

I was able to get in just a moment ago without any issues so it should be fine.

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

Has anyone played the new Fed tutorial and could tell me how much content is in it? I'm out of character slots and wondering if it would be worth re-rolling a level 11 toon.

Or you can provide us with your character@account details and we can send you a fleet invitation.

Its just 3 missions that bring you to level 3 at the end of it. I find that it is quite similar to the old fed tutorial (fighting the same foe), just with better artwork and better story.

I have a question ever since my Romulan character hit level 50 I haven't been able to access the New Romulus Command Center, does anyone know how to fix that?

Yeah, i lean a little more toward the roleplaying part as well. That's why my crew is almost 100% Andorian (as opposed to entirely human with a token alien like in the shows) instead of generic alien captain with a Jem'hadar, Breen, 3 Borg and other special officers.
My only special ground officer is an Android and he looks Andorian.
Wait, we can have androids? Is this a Data-quality android?
Want.
Work held me up about 5 hours longer than I expected and I have to get up early to go back to work, so I don't have the time to really get started on my character tonight, not if I want to feel half way human tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get home at a decent hour tomorrow so I can get started. I was pretty unhappy about having to wait another day, but I don't have a whole lot of choice. I'll be looking forward to it tomorrow though.

Yes, there are Android bridge officers. However they are a pretty high veteran reward.
Either you sub for a few years or you go lifetime, if you want it.
They have a lifetime sale for a cheaper price than usual, but it's still a major commitment to go for it. 200 bucks plus taxes...

If you want o have a Soong type Android without that, just get an alien boff, give him gold eyes, gold/silvery skin and a twitchy stance... vóila: Android. You just don't get he skinless patches that show machinery underneath as a costume option.... and the reboot ability that auto-revives him when he dies.

Was it actually downloading new stuff, or was it just patching from the files it downloaded earlier in the week? The client has recently gone down for some emergency maintenance, so it could also be that if there's another patch being rolled out today.

Pretty standard. They release something, only test a little, underestimate the number of people that are playing, and CRASH! I mean, maintenance. You'd think they'd understand that the game surges like this, and plan for it, but 8 seasons and they haven't figured it out yet...

Well, I think it's more complicated than that. They just never get the chance to test under full server lose until they go live with an update.

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

Okay I have Storming the Spire sussed out. The side facing the starting point is the "hard side" or front side, and the other side of the spire is the "easy side" or rear side.

The front side's task is hard. They have to defend our troop transports from being destroyed before they can unload troops. So they have to take out *everything*, including Voth ships, swarmers, turrets. And in phase 2, they have to take out the Voth Dreadnaught ship.

The rear side's task is much simpler, prevent Voth Troop Transports from landing and unloading troops. So the easy side's task is to take out Voth Troop Transports. The other ships are pretty much optional. And in phase 2, all they have to do is take out escaping Voth shuttles that blow up easily.

Because of this, I think the best strategy is to assign 3 of the best, highest damaging ships on the front side and have the two weakest ships to the rear. So there are 5 players and 5 defensive positions to fill, Front Left, Front Middle, Front Right, Rear Left and Rear Right.
