    You should all come play with us! I joined the TrekBBS fleet recently and we could use more people. I'm chatty and I would be happy to run group things with you, though I'm a noob and there is still a lot for me to learn though I've been doing a great deal of research. Besides, the true endgame is Space Barbie and I'm all into that!

    Aren't you constrained to play when the BBS fleet wants to?

    Nope, you can pretty much do everything you want solo. You have to PuG TFOs (AKA dungeons in WoW), but so far that hasn't been an issue. I'm guessing elite difficulty stuff would be harder to do without a good group (not necessarily your fleet), and there are fleet events that have to be done with the fleet (I think?) but that doesn't seem to be a significant part of the game. Someone with better knowledge of this can explain since I don't know a lot about fleet actions. Overall I'd say it's the most solo-friendly MMO I've played and I've sampled around 15 of them.

    Thought I'd give the game another try after being away for a while. Is there a reason it runs like total ass on the Xbox One S?

    It's a port that was made as cheap as possible as a cash grab for the consoles and that is why it has issues on both xbox and ps, and i doubt that will change anytime soon if their bug fixing and patching on the pc is anything to go by. Lol

    Building a rainbow beam boat now for endeavors since I got lucky and got a Risian Luxury Cruiser. It's a crap ship for TFOs but it's cute and will be funny to play. I'd like to work on some faster raiders next, though, because it's fun to zoom around more easily.

    Be sure to look at some build ideas over at the DPS league and STO academy. If you have any questions let me know. I'm working on my sci epg build... time to show a certain someone what space magic can do!

    It's a cheap port of a game that doesn't even run that well on PC.

    I finally gave up on the game, when I beat the Doomsday Machine and it reset my progress back to the beginning of that episode. It was disappointing after working my way through that choppy mess.

    Starbuck, next time you are on the PC version send me a message, i got some free keys for you as i had plenty of zen left over after i had bought that Dyson pack, so i bought keys and split them between people on my fr list, spread the wealth so to speak as it was just sitting there doing nothing, and you are the last one, i sent a message but you have not been on yet, so if you see me on come find me..............although not that i will ever get around to using the ship pack, but you never know, they might bring a story pack out that might be interesting to play through, so they can sit there until in mothballs until then........digital ships in digital mothballs, how did we get to this state. lol

    I liked your sci build in the TFO we did. I think Sci is the way to go if you want to do really interesting things in group content. Currently I'm just lazily antiproton beam boating my way through everything, but I'm going to switch to a cannon build once I have the resources to change out my tactical consoles.

    The true endgame is Space Barbie, if you ask me, and I'm going for a TOS theme so my cute little Tellarite female Captain has an adorable cadre of a TOS Andorian, another Tellarite, a Betazoid ( I made her look like Deanna Troi lol) and a super cute Aenar. They all wear adorable skirts like in TOS but they kick ass.

    Thanks, it's a build in progress but still a good hitter! So much money is made from space barbi but we al have to have that look just right. I've been thinking I should invest in the Andorian ships roll and new Andorian tac... we'll see.
