I'd much rather have a new mission. Hell, I'd even pay for it (Or at least raise the dilithium for it. )

That's crazy. They will be just flooding the market. Of course some players will want to own ever ship that's put out.

To be honest, I'm happy with the current ships that are available. The only thing I'd like to see is a carrier or hybrid carrier. Although we never saw any in the shows or movies there is plenty of official gaming material that includes that type of ship.

That would be nice, although I'd imagine missions take longer then ships, what with story writing, scripting, etc. But if it's just one mission, instead of 5 like with the FE's, I suppose they might be able to do it. Wouldn't want to loose the FE's though.

You wouldn't be playing very long. Cut out all that F2P action and it'll get quiet very fast, because I wouldn't pay to play the FE, and neither would many others.

Why I Play: Star Trek Online - article

joystiq has an article up


I'm not going to lie to you -- I'm a huge Trekkie.
...at the beginning, I thought that STO would be just another avenue for me to express my fandom without having to worry too much about having the manual dexterity to wield a console controller.

It ended up being quite a bit more for me, however, and here's why.
and at the end she says:
I play STO, and I will continue to play STO because the game gives me more than what I bargained for... and that's community.

There's a reason I went technical instead of business...

I'm not saying all the content, just the premium content. But it doesn't matter. Although I don't understand the need to give so much to the F2P players (do other games give this much???), I will probably join their ranks soon. Have to ensure that I have my characters are properly spec'd first though. I've heard that they take away all your bonus respec tokens when you drop to silver.

From what I hear the guys working on ships and the guys working on missions are two different groups so its not an either or thing but more the ships guys finished there stuff first thing.

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

I for one feel that Admiral level characters should not be in command of 30-40 year old models. At least for cruisers there's the Dreadnought and Odyssey, both of are either brand new or can be considered relatively new in the STO universe's timeline. Not only that, I find it a little unfair that there are now three Tier 5 cruisers but only two escorts and a single Science vessel. And all three ships are just "retrofitted" versions of Tier 4 ships.

Cryptic definitely needs to fill up tier 5 with more escorts and science vessels.

Count again. There are The Defiant R, the MVAM/Prometheus, the Fleet Escort, the Bug Ship: 4 escorts.
The Luna class, the Trident class, the Nebula R, the D'Kyr Vulcan ship and the Intrepid R: 5 science ships total at T5.

Of course cruisers are ahead regardless: Sovereign, Starcruiser, Galaxy R, Galaxy X, Galor and now the Odyssey: 6

I would like to see PvP sets similar to the STF sets and of course more STF level instances.

A threat control set would be nice, that grants taunt abilities. AoE and single target influenced by threat control skill.

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

Well I took advantage of the C-point buying frenzy that the new ships are likely to generate by selling my C-point for dilithium now all i have to do is way for the market to go back to normal and hopefully get a nice amount of -points for the dilithium.

Annoyingly Dan said in an interview recently that they're reviewing whether to continue doing FE series. Apparently, since going F2P they aren't seeing the player numbers they'd like playing them in relation to the cost of making such content. No bang for buck, so expect to see more "event" style content in the future I guess.
