    A fleet invite is per toon, a friend or channel invite is per player. Just incase anyone was unclear on that...

    I talked with two people that play STO on their laptops with dialup and they say play is okay. Don't try that when a patch is required though.

    I've played on my laptop but only at home using the home wireless network.

    Anyway, take care and talk with you later.

    Since my computer died, I can only play with a laptop, and as my router is too far from where I have my laptop, I'm always connected through wifi.

    So I play STO, Anarchy Online and World of Tanks (not at the same time, mind you) with my laptop through a shaky (at best) wifi connection.

    Performance only depends on your laptop features and the available internet connection.

    Mine is an i3-370 CPU with four gigs of RAM, running W7-64. I also checked when purchasing that the video card was decent for playing (ATI Mobility Radeon HD5470), even if it was at mid-to-low settings. I purchased it about a year ago for 470 euro.

    It was a second-line machine performance wise, and today, as it always happens, is even more behind the state of the art.

    But you can play STO with it.

    I honestly grow tired of the "I only have a laptop to play" excuse.

    A lot of hotels offer wifi, some even for free, so that it's not an excuse, either. And for occasional play, you can always go to an internet cafe o a library, and play with a headset to avoid making noises.

    Nowadays, the "laptop" is not an excuse, and if things keep going this way, even the "I only will have internet on my smartphone" won't be an excuse as those will be able to run STO too. :P

    I upgraded my laptop from 3GB to 4GB and you can notice a big difference in pep. Much more than I was expecting. Didn't help the graphics quality but helped with the speed at which they get thrown up.

    For a home wireless router I recommend Linksys (Cisco). I've tried others and they just can't compete with the stability of the Linksys. I live in a large house with a lot of steel in it and I can get a good signal anywhere.

    So, any chance of joining the fleet? We talked about starting one with my bro and a friend, but then we learned that you needed to be like six people. And I really want my fleet uniform slot! :lol:

    My ingame nick is: kaytara@emher

    I posted a new event on the fleet calender for the Command Transfer Ceremony.
    We will meet on my ship the U.S.S. Gallifrey-D and I will officially step down as Fleet Leader.
    Trek, who technically holds the rank already, will take over and then we can celebrate the occasion.

    Bring Drinks, Partypoppers and Dress Uniforms (fleet uniform).

    Once the transfer has taken place, I'm going to be looking to fill my previous post of Fleet Quartermaster.

    If you're interested please drop me a PM or message me in game.

    I was a STO paying member when it first started up, then stopped for a good while, and have now returned since it became free to play, using my same character. I would not mind giving the fleet thing a try...

    My main character is a Captain (31), in-game contact is Joe@Talkeetna, of the U.S.S. Alaska.
