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

I don't know if anyone who has Romulan toons played the sequence "Mind Games" involving capture and brainwashing by Sela and the Tal Shiar; it's pretty creepy and dark considering some of the things you have to do. Also, it's pretty sad what you hear of the additional things the Tal Shiar does to one Romulan patient on Nimbus III later on.

With this sequence - "Mind Games" - and even the Deferi sequences, I tip my head to the people who made the player - me - feel for some of the characters, including our own toons who also have to 'experience' these moments in their own way.

There were some people on the official forums complaining about the mission when it was first released with the Romulan expansion, because they didn't like that heir hero character was forced to take these horrible actions.

But I think it's among the best missions in the game.

So... Harry Kim? I realize that they're on a budget and he probably comes cheap, but they picked just about the most forgettable and least interesting member of a forgettable, uninteresting cast.

Still, it could be funny. I'd imagine he'd hate the player's guts.

Well anyone who uses the Bug ship should rejoice your getting a free upgrade when the expansion goes live.

With the release of Star Trek Online: Delta Rising, this starship (either from this run of the promotion or from previous runs) will be upgradeable to Tier 6 starship capabilities at no cost.
I wonder what that means for the other lock box ships.

Well, well, well, have a look at this one sentence in the latest Tribble test server patch.

It is now possible to tag (Foundry) projects as category Quarters, for your entire player housing and crew quarter’s needs.
And a few posts down, a dev had this to say:

It means that if you want to use the Foundry to make a map that is intended to represent a ship interior, personal quarters, home, etc., you have a category that you can put it under so that people don't mistake it for a mission.
Looks like soon we'll be able to entirely customize the look of our ship interiors.

The dev later posts that the Quarters tag ties into The STO Player Housing Project

Since the last patch, I have not been able to login at all. Anyone else having a similar issue?

I'm actually logged in now through ARC.

I did have issues with rubber-banding/lag one or two weeks ago, but that comes every now and then; not as much as it used to.

Mine fought me for about 10 min, it didn't want to load the updater, but it went through eventually...

No issues for me logging in. What kind of issue is it specifically? Launcher won't load? Engage doesn't engage?

I am so behind it's ridiculous. I haven't played for a few months, but the changes have been sweeping! I'm still getting used to the new crafting system.

^ I like the new crafting system. It's how I'm trying to make some EC. But I think some people sell some stuff way too much. For example, what player is gonna sell a very rare ship shields Mk VI for a couple of million. No-one is gonna that much for something at that level.

Had no problem logging in earlier.
