I thought the new mission was fun. A little story progression and a cliffhanger.

And quick-equip is great.

It really wasn't bad.

Honestly, i wish they'd not focus so much on trying to make kewl artwork and new setups, and just have someone spitting out these kinds of missions on a regular basis. Monthly, or even every two months, doesn't seem like too much, especially if they don't go nuts with new artwork or voice overs.

Can still do big season updates and whatnot, but even a slow trickle of regular story content would be a huge hit, and keep the story moving along....

Haven't had a chance to play recently. Going to do the new Tuvok mission now. So excited because as most people know I am a Voyager lover!

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

just downloaded the game for the first time last night and had a really good time! I finally treated myself to a top of the line laptop so Star Trek MMO was one of my first downloads!

One thing I was wondering, is your initial senior bridge crew random or the same default for everyone? Right now I have 2 female humans and a female Bolian.

Anyway, if you see Slvon Th'Chaplin of the USS Newport say hi!

Used to be random, the latest season update made them your former academy buddies, though I think one of them is a vulcan?

Welcome to STO This is probably one of the best times to enter the game since they just launched the new "season" 8.5 which includes a lot of changes to the low level federation player missions. So it should be easier and more fun to play.

Oh, and feel free to ask us if you face any issues. We're always happy to help out.

What exactly have they changed with the low level episodes? I replayed "stranded in space" and didn't notice any changes.

That's because Stranded in Space (and the mission with the Vulcan Ambassador as well as Doomsday) was already remastered ages ago. But after the Tutorial revamp during the main seasonal update they now remastered most of the Klingon Front levels afaik. Haven't had a chance to play them yet, though.

I hope, they will eventually get around to do the same to the Romulan and Cardassian Arcs.

Slyvon, let us know your Character@handle name, and we can add you to the Fleet. That way you'll know when people are online, and especially for playing through the first time, sure people are glad to team up and help you through some missions. Some are more fun/easier as a team.

I played up until the Gorn episode with the missing scientists.
There were maybe 2 or 3 very minor cutscenes, some minor changes to the environment.
Most noticable the surface of Kassae IV and streamlining of mission flow.
Less trash mobs in unnecessary places.
So far there was no additional VO work by Lt. Flores fro example.

I think "streamlining" is the perfect word to describe what they did with the early Fed missions. I'm leveling up a new Fed engineer and have noticed it going a lot smoother than when I leveled my first character.

I'm thinking of starting a Fed Sciencer. What's Science about? Healing, mainly? Shield tanking/draining/rifts?

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

yeah, kinda. The 'magic/caster' class with debuffs and whatnot. Honestly, not sure I'd bother. STO has completely ignored them as a class, and none of the team stuff really rewards or has any place for the SCI abilities. Really, you either need to go heavy on DPS and TAC, or go ENG for the tank/healing powers. SCI is that middle ground that's not really good at either, and the thing it does bring isn't super helpful IMO...

I liked the Tim Russ mission. Enjoyed beating it with Tuvok and the EV suit part was cool. Trying to play the Q game but you can only really do it once a day.
