  • But we got one. Patrickngo, would you like some chilli sauce with your hat...?

  • Simple consoles and spec seating could go a LONG way on the Vor'cha T6. It's a great platform that outperforms pretty much every other T5U cruiser... it's only a few months since I was last using one with, of all things, a Beam Overload build. T…

  • I have see the earlier versions . The remasters are from a decade ago, but very good about keeping the 60s style.
  • patrickngo wrote: » The threat an updated Tor'kaht/T6 Vor'cha poses, is that it upsets the paradigm of "Lockbox>Romulan>Fed>Klingon>nothing", because it can do BOTH PvE well, and PvP, and it isn't a lockbox, gamblebox, or premium gambl…

  • I think you've got a serious case of rose tinted spectacles there; the only memorable Klingons in TOS are Kor and Kang (though I think "Tribbles"' Korax deserves an honourable mention), while most of the others are thugs or slimeballs. The much-bel…
  • Ah, I have missed this! It seems it is time for me to look at the glass half full once more. Patrickngo, as always you make the point about "what is Honour" absolutely spot on. But I give Discovery's writing staff a bit more credit than that; …
  • Still the game's most evil and shooty looking ship! Had great fun running wolfpacks with this back in the day. IKS Ngok'yao brought out of mothballs...

  • Hmm. Between this and the anniversary ship, Andorian T6 escorts coming soon.
  • > @dragnridr said: > Hey look.....no Romulan love yet again......Why am I not surprised. Oh, BTW, Discovery is not doing very good. I doubt thise lockbox will fair any better. Plus they are ugly ships.....I'll pass on this round, yet again. …
  • Wow. First time I've ever wanted multiple ships from a lockbox.... will be worth flying a Crossfield just to annoy the haters ☺
  • Martok! Well that's worth the price of admission. ...

  • I do fly a Klingon D7 but don't have a Rom character. So I'm neutral, but can understand why Rom players would want one of their very few canon ships. The problem is how you do it; anything other than a promo pack is a kick in the teeth for those wh…
  • I can't say I'm a big fan of the visuals on the Klingon versions; I can't get my head around the "Kaiju" forward sections. If they were rotated 90' for a more traditional Klingon "hammerhead" look it would probably be fine.
  • coldnapalm wrote: » Also the secondary deflector and experimental weapon slots do like 1/4 what normal items of their slots do. This would be a FULL powered slot...which is not the same. So if they added this to all cruisers, I would be against …

  • Post-launch but pre-F2P here. This is a fascinating response - while unscientific it's interesting to note the sheer number of Pre-LoR players responding - which suggests that (at least in terms of the STO forum) the game is doing a good job of r…

  • This is why Ganalda is a much better place for ship fitting - the shipyard has a bank and exchange in the same room. Still no reason why Qo'nos shouldn't be the same, though.
  • I've bought bridges before - I like all my ships to have an appropriate bridge. These things matter . That said it would be heavily dependent on the bridge / interior in question; about the only one not in game I'd pay for is the 22c NX interior…

  • Dub'Hos - "Strong Back", in various permutations a D9, Bortas'qu and Vo'quv. Qul'Puq - "Fire Child" (D7 cruiser) Both, embarassingly, names coined 25 years ago for my FASA RPG characters and now retained by their STO incarnations. Then, for g…
