    Yes.

    Not demonstrated as being a very good science officer, couldn't get along with her crew unless she was engaging in an inappropriate relationship with the crewmember in question. I'd have rather had Chekov if I had to choose. (yes I know Chekov wasn't born yet.)

    Really? What, exactly, did he do that demonstrated his competence? His entire onscreen resume is summed up in two words: "died messily".

    Shouldn't be a problem, any fleet that cleaned out is stupid and frankly, deserves it. They make it very easy to set levels of access to the bank, and if you don't use them, your fault.

    We are pretty well set, the lower ranks are very limited, the mid ranks are limited to the blue tabs, and the higher-ups even have limits on the purple tab, excepting our fleet admiral and whatnot. Not only limits which tabs you can get, but how many things you can take in a day, so with both of those in place, you can only screw yourself over. Either didn't set any limits for the stuff worth stealing, or promoted randoms way too far, too fast, and got it that way. Outside of Timelord, the quartermaster, and maybe 1-2 others, no one COULD clean us out. think the worst that could happen is we lose a handful of blue items.

    see all kinds of angsty threads in the STO forum, but what action should STO take? They gave you the ability to protect it, you chose not to. All the 'thief' did is use the bank at the permission level you allowed them to. If it's set for any fleet member to take up to 100 items, can't get upset if 100 items are taken. Idiots...

    So tomorrow marks the start of new items and content. The 2 year anniversary celebration starts, with a new reward for each of the 4 days you participate, plus you can do a mission to get the new Fed/KDF ships. Then the new FE begins the following Saturday (Feb 11), which should run for 5 missions. At long last, new content is almost here !!

    I was also reading the latest Tribble release notes, and they are making some great changes, including increasing the drop rate of the rare STF drops.

    I knew about the new ship (which I'm chomping at the bit to get) but also new content in 5 new missions?! At last! I hope the new missions will not be one of those you need 5 people, I hate those... Never can get enough people who know what they are doing to... oh well.

    The Odyssey class looks very nice, cant wait to fly her... I'm still picking out a name for my new ship! :mallory:

    If the new missions (part of the Featured Episode series - a 5 episode story arc) are anything like the previous FE's (Breen/Deferi, Romulan, Devidian) than they will be single player with your away team. Supposedly they will be relesing the next FE (5 more episodes) shortly after this one is over.

    However if the last Featured Series is any undication you can only benefit from running them with a team, since there are class specific optionals, which can add to the immersion and get you some nice accolades you can never get solo.

    Since I've alast mentioned the Odyssey they've nerfed it, so I'm now less enthusiastic about getting it. I'll still do the shakedown, I just doubt I'll ever fly her after that.

    I give her a go... you never know if she will get a balance pass after release... for all we know people hate her and no one flies her, then she must get a power bump of some sort.

    Hey would you happen to have a male Human tactical boff and/or a female Betazoid science boff?

    Yay!

    From what I hear its good and tanking but no so good at damage dealing which is causing a small battle between players who want it to be a Super Assultcruiser and those who want to to stay a Super Starcruiser.

    I hope what it lacks in raw punch power it makes up for with console use. I'm just not sure if I want to mount my cannons on her or use a beam array, we'll see.

    I also made the Vulcan science officer, though I doubt I will play with that much now.
    I played few missions of the Cardassian arch with Gilmore and Im enjoying the stuff maybe even more than the Romulan missions:)

    The new FE will get me to log in for the first time since the week SWTOR was released.

    It'd be nice if it at least had the turn rate of a normal star cruiser, which is 7. However I still laugh that the 124 year old Excelsior design is still the best cruiser in STO. Sod those Galaxy, Sovereign and 2409 starship designs....

    You should be able to create a Private queue for the CE using the second tab on that window BTW.

    Yes, but still only during the event hour and then i don't know if the map requires a full 20 people/4 teams instance to start.
