Ok... I just spent 30 mil for a plasmonic leech console as I understand it's probably the 2nd most valuable console in the game... give or take... at least it better be for the money!

Anyways, I'm running my engineer with the MACO set using tetryon weapons... I also understand the plasmonic leech conflicts with the MACO set so I'm on the hunt for a new ship set....

Question is, which set will compliment my loadout... Nukara? 8472? Something else? Which will compliment the leach and my tetryons?

Or should I use a combination of sets, but then I'd loose out on a fell set bonus...

I'll miss my MACO set but I want the get the most out of what I'm using.
Just curious, but what type of ship is your engineer running? I'm taking into account Intrinsical's advice up there.

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

Hmmm, I wanted to take care of some missions before taking care of some offline missions in the 'real world' but I've been having trouble with some 'rubberbanding' and 'lag' issues lately during the space and ground missions, and during general walkarounds.

I sent a ticket with info about my connection. Apparently, there is a thread online that gives some info to document when you send information to the Cryptic/Arc people.

I was, however, able to retrain my Vice Admiral. Now she has levels in pretty much everything except threat control. (I don't want attention on me, I like flanking when possible since so many do it to me anyhow).

I now have to work for dilithium towards my costume change (550 Zen), and eventually my multi-mission sci vessel (2500 Zen).

Currently running Prometheus class ship but before I was running on a T5 Galaxy with beams. I'm running the Prometheus just cause I want more maneuverability and canons, the the seperation is fun too! I switch back and forth.

Yes, same as Federation got a Veteran uniform for 200 days.

But the Feds get 2 variants in addition through the fleet tailor store where the Romulans can pick those same uniforms up for their Fed Boffs only.
Well at least the Romulans get all their uniform options unlocked, when they unlock them, fed characters still have to buy the Wrath of Khan and Starfleet Academy uniforms to get all of their options available.

May I present my Jem Hadar crew.

I finished the ground outfits, though not quite sure if I keep the Vorta in that uniform.
What options are there to give Boffs civilian clothes that would fit her?

Now the grind starts to give everyone at least a Dominion Weapon and of course try to get the Jem hadar ships somehow.

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

I have a question related to the new uniform code, specifically its with regards to the Commanding Officer Service Uniform (page 6) and Flag Officer Service Uniform (page 8).

Both uniforms only define a red color striping across the shoulder. That makes sense for Tactical Officers, but what about Engineering or Science Officers? Should they be wearing the red stripe as stated in the pages or continue to wear a gold or blue stripe?

Its probably just up to what you want to do about it, but so far the only guy I've seen (having not gotten through the rest of the missions yet) who wore a different division color (the admiral for fleet action mission who wore gold) is now using red, everyone probably uses red regardless of being tactical, science, or engineering.

I went ahead and asked on the forums.

I'll let you know if I hear anything.

I think the idea is, you've reached Captain or Admiral by transferring to command, so you wear red - like Worf on DS9 went from security gold to command red.

You're right. I checked All Good Things where Beverly Crusher was in command of the USS Pasteur in the future timeline. She was wearing a red uniform.

Well checking the forums I got this response to my question

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...1&postcount=91

So it sounds like you only have to use red regardless of class using the admiral uniform, but cpatain uniforms can use what ever division color.

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

Question:
What Reputation lines have story continuations? (For example, the New Romulus continues the story with the Tal Shiar, and I think the Dyson continues the story with the Voth defector. Are there any others)?

Of course, I would hope - one day - to have all my Tiers full for each Reputation area, but I overall want to focus on the ones that further the stories.

I think New Rom and Dyson are the only ones with continuing stories that have cut scenes... the rest are just nothing but a reward at the end.
