    the third from the last option is the Armada uniform Rincewiend, See the Fleet thread for exact color boxes and details.
    I just put that in here because you seem to not like any of them. If your not attached to any specific uniform then you might as well use the fleet uniform:)

    Is this game down for maintenance everyday or what? Every time I can play, which is late at night or early morning, it goes down for a couple hours. Pissing me off.

    Every couple of days.
    2 weeks ago it was daily.
    Par for the course for almost every new comercial MMO...

    To be honest, I'm starting to get bored with it. I made Commander and that's nice, but I have no interest in playing that much. It all gets so repetitive, and I'm not paying a monthly fee just to wait on something better, so they really need to add content.

    It may not be maintainance, but an overloaded login server?

    Yeah, I'm starting to feel that way too. I haven't touched the game in a couple of days. I agree the game is very repetitive.

    I might come back later, if they make changes.

    Adding a bunch of science missions (and not scan this and go there) would be great. Diplomatic missions, too. Also, I'm not too fond of the instancing, as there are only a handful of people on any base at any given time, and so it feels like a ghost town of NPCs, and if I wanted that, I'd buy a game that didn't require a monthly subscription to play.

    No, it's maintenance. Goes down at 5AM CST every morning. I am still just a Lt and I have been playing missions all over. Getting my butt kicked by Gorn battleships was quite annoying last night. I can't remember the system, but it's in Regulus. I could probably take on 2 but not 5....

    You guys hear about the big marketing foul-up made by Atari & Cryptic over the weekend?

    The Atari website started selling STO at a $10 discount and 60 extra days of free play a week before all of the original subscribers' first 30 free days have even expired! Got the whole STO forums on the official site going bonkers with a good possible third of the players threatening to leave the game possibly!

    Here's a few links:

    Yeah, this has really backfired on them.

    From the reviews, and what I've been reading, this game is a graphically nice, Star Trek-themed timesink. So I'm not as annoyed as I was initially that my single-core, dx9 PC doesn't make the cut.

    So I'll rant. The starting point for a big, online, Star Trek game, would be a VERY large universe to play in. Thousands of stars, with most of it unknown space, filled with unknown aliens, lifeforms, gaseous anomalies, planets to scan and/or investigate. A game that conveys a vastness to space similar to how Starflight did back in 1987. Let it be large enough, that you can have both gatherings of large numbers of players, and still be able to get isolated. Big, and full of interesting stuff. Strange lifeforms that attack your landing party. Ancient ruins, artifacts.
    Starflight had its grind, also - large amounts of mining ought to be an optional activity - but that game captured the feeling of exploring space and encountering aliens better than any I know of since.
    I'll be keeping my eye on STO, though.

    Large universe, better graphics than 320x240 2D, an actually completed game. Pick two. ;)

    You do know you can turn half-resolution off in the options panel :p

    Starflight is still one of my favorite gaming experiences of all time. I would love to see a modern version of it.
