New easy question: If you buy new characters from the C store, do you also get the starter's amount of new bridge officers, or do you have to just use the ones you already have?

Each character has their own set of bridge officers. Don't be fooled. Sometimes bridge officers from two different characters may have the same name and even share the same face, but they're different individuals who can wear different gear and learn different skills.

My guess is Starfleet has learnt cloning techniques from the Dominion.

The Galaxy class and varients are popular. It makes a really good tank. My baby is the Excelsior Refit, but it's a C-store purchase.

Don't understand the question about the bridge officers. They generally stay with a character. Some can be transferred to another player (then back to another of your characters).

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

Been out of town a lot lately. Had difficulty getting into my account. Later saw the posts about Cryptic resetting everyone's passwords. They should have put a banner up that everyone needed to update their passwords for security reasons. Of course that would have required "Customer Service" thinking on Cryptics part.


I picked up the 600 day VA ships. So Doc Lee finally gets to move out of the barge (Odyssey) and into the Intrepid Refit. Will take a little adjustment getting everything optimized for the new ship but should be more fun to play. Jasmine took the BOP refit, but is staying in her carrier for now. Trying to decide what role the stealthy BOP would be best utilized for.

I had the same problem. Not been able to get online much in the last month and I came back to find my password didn't work. Guessed that cryptic had done something like that.

Admittedly, this week I've been spending a bit more time in Diablo III and less time in STO. However, I still do log-in daily just to issue new assignments to my duty officers.

I really need some advice, I am obviously doing something wrong and I can't for the life of me figure out what.

I am currently Rear Admiral, Lower Half (42), and for the last 13 levels have been stopped by this one particular mission. I cannot seem to beat the Romulan ship Sithesh, from the Romulan front mission Ground Zeros. It's heavy photon torpedoes keep tearing me to shreds.
I had a lot of problems with this ship initially on my Science Officer - mind you, I attempted the mission at the level you can first obtain it, so not sure how the Sitesh scales to RA. Since learning a few tactics for D'deridex class, I've been able to beat it - died a couple of times in my Intrepid, but beat her first time out now I'm levelling a Tac Officer in an escort.

Get a PBAoE damage power. ANY damage to a Heavy Torp will destroy it, and with PBAoE you don't need to take weapons lock off the main target... Beam Fire At Will has too high a chance of not hitting all three torps in time, for my liking. Photonic Shockwave or Tractor Repulsors will save your skin - the latter is my preference since it locks onto the warbird herself once it's destroyed the torps, and the knockback gives you some distance. If you can remember to save those up to fire off when the torps get within range, you'll survive. About the only thing the Romulan ship can do about it is luckily down those systems with Viral Matrix or subsystem damage.

If you can't polarize the hull to remove the tractor beam, try Evasive Maneuvers - it won't break you free, but you'll be able to turn better which helps keep a strong shield facing the warbird... even if you destroy the torps, her disruptors are still gonna hurt if focused on one facing for too long. Jam Sensors if you can.

Assuming you have a shield repair and can boost your weapons enough to keep up a slow, steady stream of damage on the Sitesh, you'll wear her down.

tractor beam is only effective within 5km range. When it locks on to you and you hit evasive you get your turn rate back once you get past 5km.

It looks interesting, especially that lieutenant commander slot being an engineering position, and still having three tactical slots. But for a 2000 c-point ship, it should had a universal bridge officer slot.

I guess it is a ship to go head-to-head with the monster of carnage that is the Guramba.

Not spending any money on that.
Makes me think the new Sovereign ship will be the ultimate cruiser like this is the ultimate escort.
