  • I only managed to make two Foundry missions, and one of them always broke after every update (something about the event handling on a couple of critical NPCs)… what I might do is write up a fanfic for each one. Out of my ever-growing stable of char…
  • I feel stupid now - more scuffling around inside my system shows that my graphics drivers were out of date... fixing that solved the problem. Sorry folks! :: retires, muttering imprecations on certain "Support Assistant" packages that tell you new…
  • Exploration missions, those were the days... running around being shot by random hillocks... or that time one of my boffs stubbed his toe on a rock, jumped into the air, and never came down.... Not to mention the random physical geometry TRIBBLE …
  • Worst news I've heard in the game, full stop. The Foundry was a very good thing - an outlet for player creativity, and a chance to see some different (and, yes, more "Trek-like") content in the game. Yes, I'm sure it's a pain to maintain it, but e…
  • It looks pretty. The game play is manageable - I've been doing it with public pick-up groups, and haven't had any serious failures yet, so clearly enough people are understanding the instructions (not that "interact with stuff that wears a plot hat…
  • Same problem (UK) here. I'd like to think the staff haven't got time to respond because they're too busy fixing the problem....
  • Viewing stats in system space. First became aware of it while people were shooting at me, in fact.... It seems to be fixed now, though. Back up to - well, a touch above what I'd considered usual (about 1% higher, in fact.) Maybe changing maps …
  • @finsches123: no, "pecus" is another word meaning "cow" (interestingly, it's the root of "pecunia", being the stuff which you buy cows with), and "buy" is a legitimate secondary meaning of "paro, parare" - I'm working from Thomas McCarthy's "Latin-E…
  • So, OK, is the title "Para Pacem" ("Prepare for peace") or "Para Pecum" ("Buy a cow")?
  • Well, it seems to have recovered today - possibly yesterday's maintenance covered whatever foul things Microsoft did to my computer, or possibly the computer digested whatever MS threw at it and settled down. (The event log pointed a finger at some…
  • Well, I'm now in a situation where I get the pop-up to start the queue, and I accept, and the queue never starts - "Planetary Assault" in the Karemma Sector today, if it's important. I can see a number of ships just sitting around doing nothing, I …
  • Count me as another experiencing problems with Sinister Gathering today....
  • I got "Savior" from Mine Trap on my main, and happily use that one.
  • Surella I am in something of a pensive mood as I make my way back to the bridge. The impression of my - experience - in Vansittaert's device has already faded, as I said; it was something too vast for a single brain to encompass, unaided. Nonet…
  • M'eioi "Whit in the guid Lord's name did ye dae, woman?" Carolyn Caird yells at Surella. The team from Temporal Investigations arrived aboard the Madagascar ahead of every other Starfleet ship. It's headed up by Caird and her associate T'Mev,…
  • Carayl Nothing happens. That's the bizarre thing. Nothing happens. Vansittaert stands there with his mouth gaping comically open, and Surella charges across the catwalk, straight through the focus of the psi emitters. There's a brief moment…
  • If there's an analogue in the Trek universe to the British, I think it might be the Andorians, actually. Former colonizing and imperialist power, now given it all up? Check. Technically a monarchy, but actually ruled by an elected assembly? Chec…
  • Surella I take a deep breath and step through the round hatch. Beyond, the spartan interior of an airlock chamber, and another round hatchway before me. I check the control panel beside the hatch. The boarding tube is a force-field cylinder,…
  • I had trouble getting this one started on a new KDF character. I tried building up the reputation, talking to the ambassador, and so on.... I was only allowed to start the New Romulus missions after doing every storyline mission before them in the …
  • M'eioi The interior of the mission pod is a single, spherical, space. A broad metal walkway runs around the waist of the hollow sphere, and a narrow catwalk crosses it from one side to the other. I can see machinery - exotic particle manipulato…
  • Surella It is almost a surprise when we emerge from subspace without some sort of disruption. There is activity on the sensors, though, a great deal of it. I study the viewscreen for a moment, trying to establish what is happening. Galactic …
  • Carayl Vansittaert presses his fingertips into his temples. He takes a deep breath, holds it for a moment, exhales. "What on Earth possessed you," he asks M'eioi, "to say something like that?" "It's no more than the truth." The Caitian is a…
  • Surella Amphicyon crashes out of subspace just as subspace itself distorts. The lurch makes my guts protest, evokes a warning bleep from the shields and the structural integrity field - On the screen, a twisting, roiling column of eldritch fl…
  • It's in the Discovery lockbox. Which makes sense.
  • M'eioi "Welcome aboard," the man in the shiny black tunic says. He has a peaked cap with gold braid on it, and epaulettes with five broad gold stripes on them. "I'm Commander Parlabane. Head of security for the Carnegie." "Admiral M'eioi. …
  • Very few Trek ships are actually tiny, by conventional standards. Even the Defiant is roughly the size of a football pitch, and the Defiant is way down the small end of the size charts. I think the Vanguard Carrier probably has all the space it ne…
  • First one I spotted was the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation. Share and enjoy.

  • Shortly after I posted that, real life started getting in my way.... I got back to my computer about an hour an a half later, and the counter had reached 97.31. Unfortunately, I had to go out, then, so I killed the process. Whatever's going on, …
  • Carayl I nod to Vekna, who nods back and sidles down the alleyway, trying to blend in and look discreet - as much as a Klingon can, on a mainly human colony world. But the alleyway is crowded, and the main thoroughfare is bustling with traffic -…
  • Never thought a thread of mine would be important enough to get necro'ed (@baddmoonrizin) To be fair, Cryptic sort of addressed this issue by bringing out the Infinity boxes, which at least are all the same kind, and are gradually displacing all …
