Thought there might at least be a KDF equivalent, kinda shafting people there. Not horrible, just a disappointment that they didn't work both sides with this promotion.

Problem is, KDF doesn't have any old non selling items they can give out without shooting themselves in the foot.
Apparently the one and only C-Store costume the KDF does have must still be selling.
If they'd make that one free even for a day, the little income they have from KDF would stop completely.

Of course they should at the same time finally make some iconic costumes for KDF that would enhance their income instead.

Of the top of my head I can think of the original outfits of:

Kruge, the Duras Sisters, Gorkon, Worf&Jadzia Wedding, Ceremony, that Klingon Captain in ST V and I'm sure there are more.

Oh well, let's see what they have to offer today. Not that I can claim it, since my internet connection won't be up until tomorrow evening probably.
Chances are I already have whatever it is.

Eh, I'll claim it just because, but that's 2/2 on ones I have no intention of using. Already got a million costumes from set pieces and whatnot, and all my BOFFs are the unique ones you can't put into uniforms anyway, so nowhere to display most of these things...

Meh, never could get into using a full special boff crew. I follow the Trek formula and have one "special" officer at most.

Whoever runs the STO Facebook account (Branflakes, I'd imagine) said the next three days will have KDF-available ships
3 KDF ships will be available between tomorrow and Friday, one each day! Qapla'!
So that's something.

Also, the lockbox is Elachi, who'da guessed?

Because there hasn't been any slot growth to account for all of the special rewards over the years, just KEEPING the special BOFFs has crowded out most of my 'normal' crew, even if they were purples. 2 Borg, a Reman, a Breen, a Jemmy... A couple of the originals are still on the team (upgraded to purple, of course), but not much room. And usually the special ones have additional skills that make them a better choice, so my regular guys usually just stay on the ship, and I use them more for the ship powers, whereas the special guys beam down. Just annoying you can't tweak their look at all, even to put them in a uniform...

And the Android and the Photonic Doctor. It's drifted so badly that I forgot TWO and didn't notice

The Android is alright. You can customize it as it's basically just an alien with special costume pieces and abilities.

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

Not complaining about any of them, they're ok. Just pointing out that I've got 7 BOFFs that are in addition to the 'regular' ones, so it's crowded them out. And out of that group, the android is the only one you can do any customizing to or put in a uniform.

It would be nice if you were allowed to select between the default costume and the starfleet option. Basically like when you choose to wear the MACO or OMEGA costumes; can either do that or the regular uniforms, but can't mix/match much. Where's the harm in having a borg in a starfleet uniform, as he's part of my crew anyway? Have the option to wear their 'native' costumes, but allow them to mix in with the rest of the team. Would at least make them look a little customizable, vice every away team having the same 4 guys following them around.

On the other hand, once you hit endgame there's almost ZERO use for your away team anymore anyway, so not like you see them much. Either running group events or solo items, maybe sometimes you can bring one guy down with you. Beaming down as a group almost never comes up anymore...

This seems to change with the new adventure zones. Since we get a new one soon, you will see more of them then.

Apparently boffs get back into focus. They are revamping the Fed tutorial right now and give your crew a similar treatment like the Romulans got. So make them more involved. Looking forward to get a new First Officer type.

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

The freebie today is the Yellowstone Runabout.

It comes with a special engine that enables any shuttle craft to use an AoE slow debuff.

You can also use the standard Danube runabout skin instead of the Yellowstone skin.

It is better than a standard runabout and better than a standard shuttle.

Though I think Captain's Yacht, Delta Flyer and Peregrine fighter still beat it.


Klingons can claim the KDF fighter for free today, too.
