I still suck at this game. lol Too much starship combat for me. Wish it was mostly away team stuff, I'd be playing it every day. But nooooo, I get stuck on a starship part and don't touch it for almost a year. lol

Try the Featured Episodes which Cryptic reruns right now. They still have space combat but are very ground intensive and have generally better stories than leveling content.

Otherwise check out Foundry missions. Some players focus a lot more on ground because it allows more diveser story telling than space.

Finished the feature episode "spheres of influence". Seemed very familiar to the Stargate Universe pilot episode. Both feature going through a gate that is overloading unto an unknown strange and deserted alien ship far away.

Enjoyed SOI, but was over all unimpressed. To much "go here, click here, go here, click here". Fun, short, but not particularly challenging.

Not bad, but not much room to explore, pretty straight-line

Also hate when they put two set pieces in the same mission, forcing you to replay the one mission for both pieces. Worse when you're trying to equip multiple toons, so are looking at 4, 6, 8, or more replays. Once per toon would have been fine, save the next set piece for the follow-on mission. A couple other FEs have done this, which sucks. Ok to put a ground and space piece in the same mission, as you could be aiming for either, but putting two space pieces in the same mission is lazy/boring.

Frankly, I"m not impressed enough with the Obelsik carrier to bother with rerunning the mission for my other toons.

I'm running it twice on all my toons simply because the two set items work great on shuttles and fighters.

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

Yeah, i don't care about the ship, just want the console and beam. Good for shuttles, but thinking I may have it as a rear weapon on my regular ship in place of a turret. I'm running AP anyway, so blends in, and by doing that and the console, there's a 10% AP boost as well, which adds to my front weapons...

Anybody playing right now want to help me beat those damn Naussicans in War is Good for Business? Still can't beat the buggers, and I'm getting fed up to the point where I'm about to go into STO hibernation for another year.

Yep, I almost wish I could script my input and just let it run while I make a sandwich.

I was also disappointed on the low number of accolades available compared to previous episodes. I ran around doing some things that probably should have earned accolades but didn't.

It was good to hear Worf, but I feel that Cryptic was banking on his star power too much. They just didn't put much love or attention into the episode. I ran my engineer through and his drones took out the defenses. That never happened before...

Yeah, SOI is so simple and mind numbingly dumb that it almost felt like it was designed for young kids.
