    Seems that everything glitches on my first character that attempts it. My KDF character played okay. That Ferengi is just dust in the wind (to the tune of "Dust in the Wind".) :guffaw:

    The "overflow" missions are sickbay assignments. I've also had those, up to 22 in my case.

    You could be right. In the past, it seemed that recruitment assignments (which take 20hrs?) would be the only thing incomplete yet I'd still have 20 open assignment slots. Perhaps that was just on the test server. Don't remember.

    I actually don't run many doffs assignment now except to get the diplo xp. Which comes in handy as you travel around the galaxy.

    Anyway thanks for the update.

    You guys are evil. I had a gold box tucked away and after reading your posts decided to open it (against my better judgement). Of course I was richly rewarded with an item that sells for 50k on the exchange. Nice return on the investment or not...

    LOL, I think I'm done with the whole Cardassian box scheme.

    i was done with the Cardassian box thing as soon as it started...

    picked up a 'rare box' on an STF, thinking 'ohh, should be some cool borg goodies or STF token stuff inside...', but no... upon opening it, i was rewarded with a normal Cardassian box, which instead of the kickass free stuff i should have got from the STF, i would have had to pay to open...

    screw that... ST:O's just turned into 'Galor Spam World' lately... pissing me off

    Wow! I played it waiting for Operation Gamma to kick off.

    I don't understand why it's only a 4 star mission. It was buried under a ton of 5 star missions, which I'm now curious if they all really earned 5 stars or if those are inflated ratings...

    You guys have ignored this thread for a while.

    For those interested... the calendar for March's releases online is up now...

    Not sure what exactly the 'flagship variants' or 'galaxy pack' are going to entail there... the one that does have me interested is the DOFF expansion... Here's to hoping it's a token that allows you to do more than 20 assignments at a time...

    Flagship variants sounds like skin pieces for the Odyssey maybe?

    the flagship variants add saucer separation to the Odyssey and Escort combat pets to both the Odyssey and the Bortas

    Not skins. +1 refits. With the ensign universal, saucer sep and the escort combat pet for the Odyssey and a BoP pet of T5 size for the bortaS.
    Hopefully with better bridges.

    You've always been able to buy Veteran status; it's just you can only buy one month of it per month.

    No of course not. Where did you get that idea? It's saying that people who have subbed will be getting their 800 day rewards. Notice that there is no C-Store label on that line.

    They said that they were working on Galaxy and Intrepid-class ship interiors like the Defiant one they recently released, so I'd guess that's what that pack might be.

    Here's some shots of the Odyssey's saucer separation and auxiliary craft:

    It means the C-store Odyssey and the TNG ship interior, which means I'm going to have to touch up my Galaxy-R in a month.

    Also it looks like its not a TNG bundle. :(

    They've just updated it to say "Galaxy Ship Pack", which doesn't really clear much up but could mean it's just a pack containing all of the current tier 5 variants (Galaxy Retrofit, Galaxy-X and Venture) into one bundle.

    This would make sense since they're adding saucer separation to the Galaxy-X. No real value to me though.

    ^No mention of a new Feature Episode after the current one finishes? Any word on when the next one will begin?

    We'll see.

    Still hope for a Galaxy Interior at some point. Decided on skipping the Defiant Interior for now.

    Had a bit of tough luck with my STF runs today.

    Got disconnected and it didnt let me back into our premade fleet map. :(
    The rest of teh team had to finish with 3 people in the end, but they did. Congrats.

    I teamed with Trek88 after that for a PuG run and we had one guy either also disconnect or abandon the team early on and one being afk for some time.
    He later returned but might as well have not, because even though he flew a MVAM Prometheus I easily outdamaged him in my Sovereign. He couldn't keep up with the small waves of probes by himself, so I had to do it after I already took over for him dealing with the cubes which one shotted him repeatedly.

    The other Prometheus in the match wasnt that good either, so our Sovereign and Excelsior pretty much dominated the run.
    Then when we destroyed teh second gate after an eternity I got swarmed by the spheres and exploded and the team just barely destroyed enough probes to prevent a fail.

    Donatra took a while , too, we were in no danger of losing at that point, was just a matter of persistance, but the dps and resistance of the escorts must have been going toward zero at that point, because they had so many injuries...

    Well, we made it too in the end... yay.. sort of.
