    Okay, I played the new FE. Really amazing. They did some outstanding work on it, and I thought it had some of the best voice work in the game as well.

    One slight correction, seeing as Fluidic Destruction introduces the Undine space zone which has you fighting planet killers, it would have to take place after Surface Tension which introduces the planet killers.

    Yes, Fluidic Destruction happens in 2410.

    It bugged me that Tuvok kept calling Sol "Saul" and Qo'nos "Konus". Other than that, really solid ...and it drew me back in again dammit.

    The fact that you can tailor your armor and kits now just sealed the deal.

    Welcome Back! :lol:

    In other news, I've just met my crazy long term goal of equipping all 8 of my Fed characters with a Tachyokinetic Converter Console without spending a single dime. That's 1600 lobi crystals, around 400 lockboxes opened and close to half a million dilithium in cost. Only took me about one and half years of effort. lol yes I'm crazy

    Plus Torg is still discommendated regardless of what faction you're playing as.

    Argh! Okay, so not completing the primary mission to protect the IKS Kang is one thing, I understand that it happens sometimes, but failing, and then just leaving?! I wanted to strangle the other four players on my "team."

    What really sucks is that I get punished with them, since the map kicks me out after 120 seconds, and then I have to wait another hour just to try again.

    I hear you, its why I don't join pugs. Thankfully, I have access to PublicEliteSTF and the various dps channels who generally are good players with good builds so I don't have to face the continual frustration of public groups.

    It is worse with the new season 9 "STFs" like Undine Assault Elite. Even good players suddenly find their ship totally not ready for the level of punishment that the swarms of Undine ships bring. Timelord, Vendikarr and I played one last night and one of the public player just dropped out after the first 10 minutes. Thankfully, the remaining four of us managed to push the swarm back and eventually won.

    That was a good run. We did miss beating the timer, and not by much. The Planet-killer was at 20% health when it ran out. I'm not sure what the timer does, but if we had five players instead of four, we may have beaten it.

    Heh, that was my group in Hive Onslaught last night. After about 10 minutes as well, one decided to just peace-out with no warning. We gave the benefit of the doubt and hoped it was just a DC, but that wasn't the case. We pushed on with four, but then another also quit without letting us know. Common courtesy, people!

    Its funny. After so many seasons, fleet holdings and reputation factions, I still find myself going back to tried and true staples for my ship's gear. Stuff like the Omega, Borg shield/deflector/engine sets. Why is it that none of the Romulan, Nukara, Dyson, Undine sets hold any interest to me?

    I have noticed the Borg stuff is tough no nonsense gear suitable to fight anyone, while the gear on later reputations feels tailored to fight a specific foe, and isn't as useful for others.

    I have never felt stronger in my ship since I got Borg gear for it.

    I still use the Borg gear set on my ship, mainly because it's the only full gear set I have currently. I took some time off from STO and I'm just getting back into it now and trying to catch up.

    I like Season 9 for the most part. I was a bit disappointed with the ending of the story mission though. I felt that just as it was rampping up the action and excitement, it pulled the rug out from under me by taking control during the final combat. Having to watch things play out in cut scenes that I had no control over and being forced into an 'on rails' shooter space combat section, completely took me out of the moment and spoiled much of the fun I was having.

    Overall, I like all the changes they've made, but their story and gameplay integration still needs a lot of work.

    Oh good. I had also been away for awhile and was curious about ship's gear because all I have is Borg tech. Glad that this question was answered preemptively, and also that my stuff still matters.

    So it looks like Cryptic's released a new Starfleet escort vessel that has the boff seating of the lockbox Undine ships. Then they nerfed it slightly by adding an unremovable rear cannon that only fires backwards. So it effectively can only bring at best 7 weapons in the fore, port and starboard direction, and 4 weapons in the aft direction.
