Good episode this week. good background noises and the sets. Not certain of how canonical McCoy being on that station is?

Well, the Enterprise was in that region of space along the Klingon boarder often enough, not sure it's that much of a stretch.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Also, didn't TOS start around 2265?

Maybe this was before McCoy transfered to Enterprise.

Which is pretty cool, now we can have up to 3 blue phaser banks on each ship. Only need three more for the whole arsenal on my cruisers
I don't know if it's still possible, or if it was squashed by a patch, but you used to be able to get your TOS Connie, swipe its gear into your Inventory, delete it, get another one (the system would notice you didn't have it anymore but you're entitled since you bought it, so you'd get another), swipe its gear, delete it, etc. You could run all blue phasers Fore and Aft that way.

You can decommission and re-commission (from the C-Store) your TOS Constitution Class; and get the retrofit phasers each time still (Just did it for my new VA1 as they all scale to MkXI phasers - and it saves money. Personally, I don't think it's worth it prior to VA1 as they are always 1 Mk BELOW the max level, but MkXII gear is much harder to get atm.)

Re: Star Trek: Online

Did it yesterday, all blue TOS phasers now...I got asked ingame how I did that, cause they all only were able to get one phaser bank from the mission.
I know it's not the most powerful weapon, but's the most cool in the game! As soon, as I can procure the best EPS flow generator I seriously consider losing one of my two torpedo launcher to get a real powerful phaser boat, I skilled everything I have into phaser weapons and they are quite effective now.

I think they usually have some at the exchange. If not there you may have to do some shopping/PVPing at K-7

Re: Star Trek: Online

I spent a load of money on the Exchange last night and setup my PvP ship for Lex. I think I might try it out tonight. It's designed to drop the enemy's shields as quickly as possible and has torpedoes that will shoot through them too.

I'm going to do somethi9ng similar for Foxton at the next rank (when I can get the Akira).

Re: Star Trek: Online

Thanks... I'm way beyond a mk IV now. Already have a mk X and it's even green. but my phaser broadsides are still straining my plasma conduits. I think I need at least a mk XI and I wouldnt mind, if it was purple or at least blue. if there is a purple mk XI or a mk XII even it probably costs a gazillion credits on the exchange.

The sector space visual revamp that's going up on Tribble with Season 3 right now is sounding pretty sweet.

Yeah I saw that video too!

Here's what one poster whose been in closed beta for Season 3 had to say about sector space now:

You have two modes of viewing sector space:
Astrometrics enabled: you have very faint, tiny gridlines and rotating star-system models on thin lollipops - it's not nearly as colorful as before. Think of Pelia and Orellius Sector Space (but prettier - see below)

Astrometrics Disabled: No grids, no lollipops, and no rotating star systems. Stars appear as flickering objects that can grow in size to spheres on approach.

On top of these modes, you also have:
"Flavor text" and "System Briefings" that appear as tooltips when mousing over a system or when adjacent to one.

Starlines: Yes - warp speed finally has starlines too! These are the classic white lines - not the rainbow lines from Enterprise.
