Re: Star Trek: Online

Re: Star Trek: Online

True this.

You can send anything not bound. So, items with the "bind on pickup" cannot be attached to be sent even to another character from your same account (last time I tried, at least). But crafting materials, generic equipment and weapons and special "bind on equip" items not bound can be transferred.

-Turns out they are 'Bound' Items so cant be sent via mail.

There are 3 types of items:

Common (White) - Can be e-mailed to any character.

Bind on Pickup (BOP - Green, Blue, Purple) - These items become bound to the individual character as soon as they appear in your inventory. Any 'Bound' item is tied to that character only, and while you can sell it back to NPCs, you cannot e-mail it to another character, or put it up on the Exchange.

Bind on Equip (BOE - Green, Blue, Purple) - These items become bound to the individual character once they are actuall equipped (worn) on that character; or equipped on your ship in a weapon, console, or device slot; and you'll get a pop up Dialogue Box asking if you're sure you want to equip the item because once you do, it's 'bound' to that character. Like BOP items, once bound, you can sell it back to NPCs, you cannot e-mail it to another character, or put it up on the Exchange. As long as you DO NOT use/equip these items, you can e-mail them to other characters, or put them up on the Exchange.

Re: Star Trek: Online

The new Rhode Island Nova Class variant is on Tribble.
Tested it last night and now I'm worried.
It is the first time Cryptic is introducing a variant of an existing ship that is more powerful then the old one at the same tier to the C-Store.
You gain a second Lieutenant level science power and another science console slots without any drawbacks at all.
This is the first serious step to people paying for an undeniable advantage.
So far you could buy a lot of useful stuff, not not necessarily superior, if borderline sometimes.
I will not buy this even though I really was looking forward to the ship.

Oh, the console. The console I would be fine with, since it has huge disadvantages, too.

But sorry, no sale for me.

Existing Nova is Tier 1. This ship is Tier 2.

Re: Star Trek: Online

No, Old Nova is also T2. T1 science is Oberth.
So you got effectively two T2 Nova science vessels.
One has a Lt and an ensign science station and one engineering consoel slot.
The other has 2 Lt science stations and two engineering console slots without losing anything.
One of thoses costs extra money...

Re: Star Trek: Online

No, they are not. When was teh last time you visited ships requisitions?

If Nova were T1, then Olympic would be T2, Intrepid would be T3 and Luna would be T4....
I'm missing a T5 here...

Sorry, but you are wrong.

I thought the new Nova was T3

says so right here

So the being more powerful wouldn't really be the problem if that was the case.

Nope. It says T2 and it is... technically. Just a T2 with better abilities you have to pay for to get.

T3 would have made me happy and I would have clicked on buy the second it's live.

You know the fleet action que system kind of sucks for ground fleet actions since you can't come and go as you please any more.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Well, the deal is completed. Perfect World has commpleted the acquisition of Cryptic Studios; so Atari is out of the picture as far as STO goes:

Story 1: http://www.joystiq.com/2011/08/09/pe...s-acquisition/

Story 2: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/3...ic_Studios.php

Many Cryptic Devs had stated they wanted to hire more staff, but couldn't until Cryptic's 'For Sale' status was resolved - and if you xcheck the Cryptic main website, they are looking to hire more staff now; so, I think this should end up being a good thing in the long run.

Re: Star Trek: Online

dstahl has posted the following update regarding the upcoming Borg intercepts on the Star Trek Online website - http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...86#post3693186

The Borg Red Alerts work like this...

As you are flying through sector space, A Borg Fleet may appear randomly from hour to hour. If they appear, a Red Alert button will pop up in the sector asking for any ships in the area to fight off the attack.

If you choose to do so, you will be instantly warped to engage the Borg Fleet with up to 4 other players of either faction, of any level.

The zone is setup so that the Borg Fleet is level 45 in most sectors (with a few sectors having higher level Borg). All players will be bolstered up to level 45 in order to survive the conflict.

You will have 15 minutes in which to dispatch 4 Borg Engagements (includes Probes, Spheres, Cubes, Tactical Cubes) travelling through the vicinity. If you die, you respawn a short distance away but can quickly rejoin the battle.

If you manage to defeat the 4 encounters in time (which in testing has proved to be a decent challenge for pugs, and a few minutes to spare challenge for max level characters on Normal difficulty) it will spawn one of ten named Borg Boss ships (of a ship class you've never faced before with a deadly new attack). You will have 10 minutes to dispatch the Boss encounter before it returns to transwarp.

All encounters in the Red Alert give quite a bit more XP than usual but do not drop rewards. There are numerous accolades for defeating the various Borg Red Alerts in all the different Sectors.

We plan to keep these events running non-stop throughout Season 4 as other Borg Invasion events and STFs are released.

These Red Alerts are a bit of a prelude to the increased Borg threat.

You can look for these to begin after our August 25th update.
Sounds like fun !!
