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

And here's another bonehead question. It's a wonder I can even figure out how to turn the damn computer on! Well, anyway. I'm still trying to figure out how to get pictures of my screen image. I've been told to push the "PrtSc" button, and a copy should go ... somewhere? I can't find where the hell these pictures have gone! Have they even gone anywhere? What am I doing?! Frustrating!

Thank you.

They go into your Star Trek online pictures folder. It depends upon which operating system you have, though. In Windows 98/ME/XP, it's likely C:\Program Files\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\Screenshots. In Windows Vista/7, it will likely be found in C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\Screenshots. It depends upon where you installed the game.

Use the file search feature of your OS to search for "screenshots". That should find you all the screenshots folders for all your games.

I just play it via Steam. So much easier, and it has the built in screenshot manager.

Syberghost is my new hero!!

My newest comand, the U.S.S. Bunker Hill, departing for adventure.

Looking for Gorns on Kassae 4.

Took a visit to Deep Space Nine.

Thanks to some Devidians, I paid a visit to 23 century starfleet.

A lot of time traveling, here. Our cast picture in front of the Guardian of Forever.

Finally, my first officer, Lt. Anthi and me on my spacious bridge.

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

Has anyone seen the March Calendar on the STO website?

1-19. Cardassian Lock Box
3. Feature Episode 4.4
8. Duty Officer Expansion (C-Store)
10. Feature Episode 4.5 (Finale)
15. Flagship Variants (C-Store)
23. New Event TBA
24. 800-Day Veteran Reward
29. Mugato Combat Pet (C-Store)
29. Galaxy Ship Pack (C-Store)

Presuming the numbers are dates in March, does it imply that those cursed lock boxes will stop dropping after the 19th? What's the Duty Officer expansion? What's a Mugato?

Well, as of yesterday, I became a Silver member. So far I've not seen any difference (I haven't logged into the game yet, but I still have full forum access at startrekonline.com).

I might go LTS in a month or so, but I'm interested to see the effect the F2P has for now.

New question. I'm on the chapter called "Past Imperfect." I am at a part where I'm in the past, and I'm squaring off against a bunch of D7 battlecruisers. I keep getting killed. There is just me, and 4 or 5 Klingon ships. Anyone know how to beat this level? It's really pissing me off.
Thanks in advance.
Keep your speed up and try to pull a few away from the pack. Baring that fire at will and Torpedo spread and possibly ramming speed.

I only recall one Klingon mission being challenging on Standard setting (The Doomsday Device). Most of the other missions can be played on Adv or Elite. (Even my daughter plays Klingon missions on Elite.)

Although "Fire at Will" is a good tactical power, I prefer to use it on Birds of Prey and other small craft. Against the D7 Battlecruiser, I would probably just unleash on the nearest one, then target the next nearest, continue until all dead.

Anyway, not making fun of you, but something is wrong if you're having trouble. If you provide a little info, I'll give a recommendation:
char type
ship
ship weapons
boff skills available

You can post here or send an ingame message to @Rocketeer_7. If you send a message, I might have some equipment or personnel that would help.

Yeah, my friend recently went Silver and he said the same thing - that he didn't lose anything. He still has the bank slots, boff slots, etc. that he had before. (I think someone else mentioned losing respec tokens) Silver is looking more and more tempting every day.

When you switch from gold to silver, you don't lose anything that you currently have unlocked, however, you will no longer qualify for the veteran rewards. So you really won't see much of a change when you switch, but the new players who start as silver will not have as many unlocks (bank slots, ship tokens, etc).

Also, any new toons will have all the initial restrictions.

Played through all my toons last night and there was indeed little difference (all of them are at VA or LG, which is part of the reason I went f2p)

The only real effect it had was that when my Gorn hit LG last night he didn't get the extra Bank/Inventory slots. However he did still get the LG ship token! (As it's a veteran reward of course).

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

Appreciate all the info. When F2P was first announced I thought I would never be a free player. However, Cryptic is giving so much to the F2P crowd.

I need to recalculate how much dilithium or cp's it would take to acquire the ships my characters still need. I already have a lot of things unlocked on this account and don't plan on creating any new toons (have 8 already).

So still considering the pros and cons.
