    Looks like a beefed up Negh'Var, which looked like a beefed up Vor'Cha... Starting to think Klingons are overcompensating for something. :klingon:

    Congratulations....
    Have you played all the patrols as well? They should pop up when you get close to a system that has one. They are not given out by an NPC anymore like they used to.
    They are quick and dirty one map missions mostly, but there are some gems in there as well....
    Go and explore to find them all :)
    If you are interested in the Diplomatic Corspe you should definitely get into the Doff System, because you can't ever reach Diplomatic ranks with the current 10DXP those missiosn give out. You need the DOFF commendation points for that.

    The best diplomatic player missions however can be found on Vulcan, in the Bajor System, on Starbase 39 and Memory Alpha.

    And if you like we, can introduce you to the Special Task Force missions (short: STF) which is dedicated group content, that requires more teamwork and tactics then any other mission.
    The rewards are a bit grindy, but among the best you can get in the game for no money.

    Ah, that could be Terradome, the only old school STF left in the game.
    It is a fun mission that features the Undine.

    The other 3, featuring the Borg, are split between ground and space episodes and only accessible through the PvE queue system. Same as the fleet actions, another type of group content.

    They are Level 50 ships. No one knows the stats and layouts yet, but I think it's save to say they will give you something unique to them that might give you an edge.

    You don't have to experiment anymore; the DOFFs now highlight any skill they have that contributes in green, so you can see at a glance who's got what.

    Also, you can filter by required or excluded attributes if it helps. Filtering out the ones with the attributes that contribute to Disaster is always helpful.

    Nice screenshot nonetheless...

    You should check out this path: .../Cryptic Studios/Star Trek Online/Live/screenshots
    (the beginning depending on where you installed the game exactly).
    You should find all your screenshots there without the HUD overlay, you don't need to copy&paste them.

    And you can post them here:
    http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=113190

    That thread exists since open beta and contains some truly beautiful shots, a lot of them wallpaper material and some I would even classify artistic... :)
