    Collaboration is difficult, since you can't share authorship to a mission.
    You could create a shared Account, but a) only one person at a time could Access it and b) I am pretty sure, that would be against Cryptic's rules and could have consequences.

    I have seen some fleets create missions, and tag them as such. It helps get a fleet noticed. Maybe members of the board fleets can create a series of missions. Perhaps come up with a storyline and different members can create a section of the story.

    We can post them and provide comments on the missions here, instead of in the foundry system. That way we can refine them before putting in a rating in the foundry system.

    I was actually thinking of trying my hand at creating a foundry mission, but have no familiarity as yet with the tools or how to use them. Definitely going to try.

    I was working on a foundry mission before LoR.

    If you've done any DOffing, you have probably done an "Establish a Listening Post" assignment in one of the Exploration zones. I started a mission called "The Rolar Nebula Incident," where the True Way has discovered the listening post, and has captured your officers. They are demanding all Federation personnel leave the sector, or the hostages will be executed.

    Starfleet's official policy is no negotiating with terrorists, and that all Federation officers know they are expendable as hostages. Unofficially, your presence is requested on DS9, where you meet with an admiral who gives you the chance to retrieve your officers. He points you to an informant in Quark's Bar who passes you information about where to start the search.

    You have to go to a True Way listening post in the mining asteroid field, where you fight your way to the computer center, and learn the hostages have been split up. You then follow the trail to three other systems to get your officers back.

    I thought making it your listening post that is siezed, and your officers taken might help with a personal attachment to the story.

    When I get it completed I will ask people to take a look and help me refine it.

    Sounds very cool. Look forward to testing it!

    Some impressions of the new shipyard (doesn't come with Sovereign class ship!) and other changes around our starbase .

    That ship is even more beautiful when it's not blowing me up.

    Well, the forced perspective makes it look more grander and majestic than it appears in game.

    So, anyone picked up a T3 fleet ship yet? :)

    Well I slotted the assignments for the new dilithium mine for the Klingons.

    Fed side has slotted the first projects as well. T1 seems easy enough to reach, though the projects are competing with the Fabricator upgrade a bit.

    Ok, the tier fleet ship system has always been a bit confusing for me... by T3 do you mean a souped up Fleet version of normally T3 ships, like the Galaxy class, Defiant and Intrepid?

    In this case I mean Fleet ship T3. That includes upgraded versions of the Defiant, Nebula, Nova, Excelsior, Ambassador and Mogai classes.

    Technically the ships are not seperated by tiers, they all come with 10% more hull and shields and a tenth console slot. Some have alternate boff layouts with the exceptions of normal T5/C-Store baseline ships.

    The "tier" in this case just means the shipyard tier that unlocks them.

    I picked up a Fleet Defiant to replace my Retrofit, but haven't really had a chance to use it yet.

    T J: You can see all of the various Fleet ship options in these tables.

    The only Fed side ships we don't have access to yet on fleet level are Intrepid, Galaxy, Armitage, Souvereign, Aquariuzs Destroyer and Odyssey, though that is not really a fleet ship, but the plain anniversary prototype, as weel as D'deridex and the Cryptic T5 warbirds.

    The Dilithium Mine is live.
    I would suggest Priorities like this now:

    Upgrade Industrial Fabricator (this will slightly reduce the Dilithium Provision costs)
    Then level and upgrade the mine at least to Tier 1
    Then upgrade the rest of the main base to benefit from the first dilithium mine discounts.
    Basic leveling should remain mainly on the mine in the meantime until it is done.
    After that back to the Embassy.

    Agreed. I also noticed that the starbase is ready to be upgraded to T3, but the two existing upgrade projects need to be completed first as there are no available upgrade slots.

    Is the Fleet Defiant worth getting from the T3 Fleet Shipyard? I purchased the Defiant Retrofit from the C-store a long time ago, so I assume I would only need one fleet module to get the ship?

    Correct. Should be easy enough to get and is worth it. Slighty better survivability and more firepower.
