    Keep in mind that the enemy is regenerating shields while you're turning back for another run. The quicker you get energy flowing back on target, the less shield is in place for your next cannon run.

    Edit: also keep in mind the Defiant had beams as well as cannons.

    Well the Defiant in the game is clearly not canon Defiant unfortunately. It's not even a "real cloak". I would really love to see the Achilles class starship in the game. Actually if i could pick any ship to captain in the Star Trek Universe i'd pick the Achilles class.

    Anyone that wants tips, help, etc, i'm more than happy to help.

    Add me in-game: Ninja@MonCapitan

    I play during Asia Pacific hours however...

    I splurged and bought up the Mk XI Phaser Turrets, a bit higher DPS and Phaser dmg but barely noticeable.

    starting tp look good. Not much you can improve gear wise now.
    Next, look at your powers and how they affect your gameplay.

    Science consoles, quantum torpedoes, and better tactical consoles, and powers to improve my gameplay, I should be ok with in few weeks or month or two.

    After all you guys all've been playing for months on end.

    Or you could just claim it in the C-store for free.

    Really?

    Got it originally with the code.
    So I wasn't aware it's a freebie now from C-Store.
    Always only showed up as purchased. ;)

    I was referring to the "nose" of the Defiant class, which seems to be missing on your screenshot. That thing happens to host the ship's main deflector.

    Oh, right. Now I feel silly for not realizing that was what you meant.

    You can't see the deflector in that screenshot because I'm using the saucer section from the Gallant-class variation. If you look at the image here, you'll be able to see it.

    Yeah I think this was likely done becuase they didn't use different codes to get it and as a result it spread through out the internet and thus there would have been no point to charging for it.

    Perfect World's CFO stated in an earnings call on Monday that STO will be adopting the "free-to-play" model by the end of the year.
    You can see the transcript for yourself here, and I found it via this thread on the STO official forums. Another user over there also pointed out that one can listen to the audio of the conference call here.

    Re: Star Trek Online goes "Free to Play"

    I think that such a MAJOR move on the ONLY online MMORPG game of the Star Trek franchise deserves its own thread, not a few remarks on an already huge thread that is a catch-all-subjects related to STO.

    I would not go as far as suggesting to sticky it, but I do honestly believe that it does deserve having its own thread.
