    Well, I can't say that Trekbbs Armada is terribly active at the moment seither, but new members would help with that of course.
    It you are still attached to your old fleet, feel free to join our Chat channel to get in touch with us in game.

    It's not just you.

    I had this problem all weekend, after the 10/3 patch. No one's really clear on what the problem is that I've seen so far. I expect we'll hear something sometime today.

    Gotta fix the horrible audio bugs, too. Was getting really loud and obnoxious "Bonnie Kin" audio while walking through DS9. And then a bunch of audio of a female character dying. DS9 was also apparently going to red alert alot, per the audio...

    DS9 should probably go to red alert more often though, it might stop it from being taken over so easily. :D

    I heard rumors this is triggered by players who have found a bug and exploit that. But don't know if true.

    Anyway, guys, read the new Dev blog.
    Golden Times ahead for us Cruiser captains!!!!

    I love the new powers for cruisers. I've been considering going back to my Regent for a bit on my Fed main. Once they roll these out past the new battle cruiser (with 5 forward weapon slots!?), I'll definitely give the cruiser more play time.

    Someone snapped this on the test server, it would appear the Avenger-class battlecruiser has Vengeance-like weapon pods: http://puu.sh/4Kr8U.jpg

    Also, the ship would appear to have a dual-neck setup like the Odyssey-class, though the gap is vastly smaller than on that vessel: http://i57.servimg.com/u/f57/14/83/54/34/avenge10.jpg

    Wow, you know, that is just a beautiful ship. Absolutely stunning. Time to start an Engineering captain. :)

    By the way, anyone here use opposite gender characters?

    The comms array thingy is a good news for all cruiser captains. I'm looking forward to testing it out. I am also looking forward to similar promised changes for science vessels.

    However I'm not sure about this new Avenger class ship. With the Battle Cruiser label, I was kinda hoping it would have a Cmdr Tactical station rather than a Cmdr Engineering station. It cuts down on the ship's combat potential. With a turn rate of 9, it is going to be the fastest turning T5 cruiser but I am not sure the ship can swivel quickly enough to bring cannons to bear. Although I suppose it makes a good dual Aux2Bat candidate.

    Although its final stats are to be determined, I'd imagine the base turn rate will probably be close to what is seen there, it can also apparently use a cloaking device and equip DHCs as well. With 5 forward and three aft confirmed weapon slots, I think it'll be pretty neat.

    It'll also be nice to have a smaller cruiser again, since its size is meant to be close to that of the Excelsior-class.

    Rather looking forward to this battlecruiser. Aside from the good stats, it's one of the better looking cryptic original designs going by the model on redshirt at the moment. Looks a bit like an compact armoured Odyssey.

    Console sounds to be a bit useless. I can see the drones being destroyed within seconds of launching them.

    I suspect I'll buy it when it's released. Wonder if it has it's own bridge.

    I'm gonna predict it won't.. standard bridge as it's a Federation non-Flagship.

    It has a min-maxer's wet dream stats for a cruiser (at least the fleet version), so it won't need any extra incentive to sell well.

    We will see a lot of them flying around.

    I will stay in my Sovereign for the time being, since I just like the design better and got it running at the best efficiency I can squeeze out of it.

    Doing the last few upgrades available to me atm. Need a couple more XII tac consoles and possibly the Marion doff since I have the funds now.
    After that, it's simply a waiting game until better Embassy/Mine consoles and warp cores become available to me.

    Thanks! I tried to add you but you weren't online. Maybe we can try again tomorrow!

    I do wish we'll get a new bridge, even a generic one shared by all Fed ships. The ones we have now are so bland and overly large.

    Nice. I would actually use that one... at least until they get me a Souvereign bridge.
