Really enjoying it

I do find the missions to be a bit samey

1. enter system and fight ships

2. beam down and shoot a bunch of guys

3. beam up and fight some more ships

4. win

but still it's cool, i am really trying to educate myself on ship builds etc, I want to start using antiproton weapons and the new featured event should help me get a lot of ap weapons for free.

Most of us have played STO for at least a year, if not more so feel free to fire questions at us.

The pre-50 game centers around Featured Episodes. However once you hit level 50, the game changes to focus on two things, queued events and reputation. Queued events such as Special Task Force (STF) are short 5-15 minute missions that gives you dilithium and marks when you complete them. You then contribute these to personal reputation projects to build up your reputation for various groups, which in turn unlocks good gear that you can buy to further enhance your ship and personnel.

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

If you visit our fleet starbase, there's a room on the right that has four vendors. They sell fleet gear, which are some of the best items in game. You'll need fleet credits and dilithium to purchase them. You get fleet credits by contributing personnel, fleet marks, commodity items and dilithium to our fleet projects. Both fleet marks and dilithium are earned by playing queued events (you'll have to read carefully to see what each event rewards).

Well, just made another stab at War is Good for Business. Stupid Naussicans killed me again. And again. And again.

I guess I'm doomed to never even reach level 10. lol

I kept failing that mission, then I realised you can upgrade your bridge officers weapons and armour, so make sure you did that

Also you can always ask for a team up and pretty much everyone will help you.

What kind of gear to you have on your ship? May I recommend you upgrade your weapons, ship equipment and consoles to green from white.

While not usually necessary, it can give you enough of an edge to survive where you couldn't before.

LOL. Yeah, I know, but when I'm playing there's never anybody else online. The joys of working the night shift.

And it could be an upgrading problem. I kind of suck at that, too.

A simple method if survival is shield Distribution.
Do you keep your shiels balanced at all times?
And make sure you have weapons at full power. It might be tempting to run a balanced setup, but you only do decent damage at max weapon power.

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

My problem is I play so infrequently, I sometimes forget how to do that stuff. I DO keep the shields balanced when in battle.

I don't know, I'll fiddle around with the ship specs etc when i get home from work. I have 2 days off starting in an hour, so maybe, if I still can't beat it, somebody from the Fleet can come in and kick ass for me.

I've been having lag issues lately, too, which is making controlling the game a bit of a chore. Only in STO, though. My LoTRO works fine.

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.

Edit: Oops. Double-post. Didn't realize I was the last one in the thread. My bad.

Tell me some details of your ship and components.

Sometimes small upgrades make a big difference.
