    I will do. I logged on and it says that I am already a member of TrekBBS fleet? I must have joined when it was originally set up years ago....

    Its entirely possible, while the TrekBBS fleet roster shrank significantly before it joined the 8th Armada, I know there are still a number of old TrekBBS players on there while we work towards completing the fleet.

    If you want to move to a complete fleet, just ask. We have several lol.

    Ok, well I logged in and there has been a lot added to the game and it was almost overwhelming to the point where I didn't know where to start!

    I wasn't a party to any of that period and I'm sorry that it happened, we do use a custom roster tool that prunes the roster with very specific criteria but I don't believe we used it on the trekBBS so it most likely happened before the fleet came into the 8th. That said, the door is open. Old trekBBS members are welcomed back into the fold and free to distribute out across the armada to take advantages of any benefits or boons from the completed fleets. If I could get my hand on any old roster rolls, I would send out new invites and reach out to the old membership.

    Also, I have an open game chat channel players can join. I check it every few days for new members and reach out to them if they aren't online when I am. /channel_join TrekBBS

    And agreed on inventory. I spend more time looking for gear and managing what I have then playing some nights. I have a board for just managing what captains flew what ships and when using what gear!!

    @TimeOfNine depending on when you last played, the game might be a whole new game to you. (space combat is still spacebar to pew however) It might be worthwhile to just roll a new toon to re-familiarize yourself with the game if you have a free slot.

    I'm one of those people not on a roster anymore. I've thought resuming again in the game, but I might wait until the summer event, if I resume again. but it's doubtful. Other things in life are more interesting.

    Well, if you want to pop in or park your toons, the door is open either way but always pursue what you want, I wouldn't want anyone thinking play STO is an obligation of any kind.

    Not sure, never flew one. What I do know is that people keep chasing the new hotness. Cryptic could put a T6 HotMess into a promobox and it'd move boxes and drive the dil exchange out of whack

    ^^^Oh i stayed away from the lockboxes, used the stipend to buy keys then sold them for EC and bought the lockbox ships that way......hence why i just added to the cluttered mess of ships i have to wade through, and the only good thing about the LTS is the stipend as it allows you to bypass the whole lockbox gambling mechanics of the game somewhat.....assuming you actually play the game. Lol
