Yeah, should cycle some of the stuff in the bank, anyway. A good amount of it is getting stale, and doesn't move around much. Sell off some of it in favor of needed Starbase projects, or at least new and interesting stuff for the bank...

Its the Enterprise, every single last one including the sailing ship and the space shuttle. What more needs to be said?

Mike@mikestretton

Please be gentle.

I am Captain - level 37, commanding a Galaxy class that lets me down against Romulan Warbirds. I have a KDF character that I have never used. I have only ever done individual missions/episodes in this game because I do not have the knowledge to do Fleet actions or anything else. I am willing to learn.

OK, let's do this. Fleet me.

Matt Hunter@matth431

Sci VA, currently in a DPS-style Luna on my first Advanced difficulty playthrough. No experience in PvP, FAs or STFs. Have soloed a few bits of Nukara but that's about it.

Assuming it still hasn't sold on the Exchange, have a nice bottle of Dosi Rotgut to crack open!

ETA: Cheers for invite, have dropped the outstanding warp coils and shield generators into the Military project and as much dilithium as I had on me.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Quick question as the wiki has failed me - what exactly are fleet marks used for? I get that fleet credits = buying special fleet items but are the marks contributed towards projects? I haven't seen any required for the projects we currently have on the boil.

Also, the stuff in the starbase vendors looks very nice (fleet ground weapons, armor and shields)... is there a vendor selling fleet equipment for ships (beam arrays, etc) that I've just not found (or do we need to complete a project to get one)?

Fleet marks are used in upgrades and projects on the fleet starbase. Besides that, I really haven't seen any other uses for them.

Thanks. Also, on checking, looks like we can't make fleet ship weapons/equipment the same way we can get special ground items... bit of a shame as I don't PvE often enough to get any of the Borg/MACO sets... would be nice to have an alternative route to high-end gear.

ETA: I stand corrected - looks like the next Engineering Tier should allow space weapons!

Stupid Question, but I just realized... have you noticed that the Starbase name can be changed in the UI?

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

I will pass on this.

I'd rather do the Tribbles before this.

Sure, more NPCs make it seem more lively, but those NPCs couldn't be more generic and they just got ported over from the other Starbases and Quonos.

What I think about when i decide if a special project is worh doing it's the RP value.

Open blast shutters? Works. Check.
Consoles? Why not? Check.
Tribbles? Kinda cute, but ALL the time forever? Not so much.
Improved Bar? Sure thing. Check.
Generic NPCs not wearing the fleet uniform? Hell no.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Honestly, I think the base is lively enough with the current number of NPCs, anyway. Plus, all they really do is get in the way.
