Not done patching. It is required to play "Taris" first?

For example I posted a thread about the insanly large patches that take hours if not days to download ( no joke, many people have this issue with STO) and as a PAYING CUSTOMER I thought it was insane.
Patches the size of about one GB are quite common in gaming these days, especially on the MMO market. And they won't be getting any smaller in the future.
You just need to find a better provider or at least upgrade your connection for more bandwidth.
This here. Patches are only going to get larger or go to a Wizard101 style always downloading model.

I have long gotten into the habit of patching while I sleep.

Also don't forget Cryptic's patches are heavily compressed; when it tells you there's 1gb to patch, you won't be downloading 1gb of data.

But it helps set the stage.

That, and The Return, I would say.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Finally got to the mission. I would call it "challenging". When is the next series of missions due?

Re: Star Trek: Online

Well I've tired of my Galaxy refit and want to get the Intrepid refit instead. Saucer sep is cool but I'd rather have ablative armor.
Do I have to dump the Galaxy to get the Intrepid?

Not as long as you have open ship slots

Too bad I didn't go with the Intrepid to begin with. Now I see I need 500 emblems. That's going to take awhile.

Re: Star Trek: Online

yeah, that's kinda a drag, seeing as how it makes it pretty difficult to change ships as a VA. At every other level, it just cost a little bit of money, and was quite affordable.

Wonder if they're going to add a tier of ships when they increase the level cap to 61?

Re: Star Trek: Online

Thing is, the refits are not your average ship. You can still get all 6 standard ships for Energy Credits. Technically those are just as efficient as the refits. You can argue that so many emblems is to much to grind for but then at the same time you can buy them in the C-Store.

Yeah, that's not going to happen.
I pay monthly for the subscription. That's enough. I have the original Intrepid yet, maybe I'll just switch to that one.

Fair enough, just as long as those ships remain C-Store items for the lazy people there is no way I would accept other people at least not working their ass off for them.
And to be honest, if you set up a tight schedule for emblem hunting you can do it in 2-3 weeks.

You get emblems for: Deferi dailies, Devidian dailies, B'Tran dailies, PvP dailies, STF runs, Fleet Action dailies. Those can all be done within a day and give you about 30 (?)emblems.

Re: Star Trek: Online

And that's supposed to be 'fun'?

Only thing less fun than just grinding a game is doing so without any sort of advancement, on fairly boring/repetitive missions, for one of about 15 forms of currency in the game.

And yeah, the ships are a little better than the tier before them, but isn't that the idea behind achieving the highest possible rank? At previous ranks, I'd occasionally have an escort and a cruiser to switch between, but now that I finally get the 'good' ship, sucks they put that ability out of reach. Paid $50 for the game, $240 something for the lifetime sub, and $75 for the first 6 month sub. Not shelling out more money for every ship skin, uniform tweak, or anything else they spend their time developing instead of working on gameplay, the first $400 is going to have to tide them over for a while. I like the idea of that Galaxy-X cruiser, but no way I'm giving them $20 for it
