    Look forward to more offers and events in the future. The events and gear we have typically provided internally are going to be offered to the public on a more regular basis. Look forward to more community benefits.

    Cell ship invites are over at this time.

    Great event! Thanks for the access. Everything went better than expected.

    The big fleets feud and the little guy wins! I love capitalism :D

    I'm not sure I could care less what the reasons are, in all honesty. I've benefitted from this thread, fleeties and friends have benefited from this offer. They're doing something good and useful for the community.

    This isn't Eve.

    I would like to thank the Nerds of Prey for allowing me to visit their Tier 5 starbase and obtain some of the Fleet items I had wanted. Thank you for this great service. :)

    Sorry, but the NoP is performing a service to literally hundreds of players who cannot obtain these items otherwise without paying millions of ec. It doesn't really matter what the reason is or why the event is happening; the only thing that should matter is who benefits (the players).

    I am at a loss as to why your continual posting in the thread is necessary. You can either 1. benefit from it, or 2. let it go. I don't see what's so hard about this, or why you feel compelled to repeat the same thing again and again over several pages of the thread.

    I usually just post when someone from Dental makes a jab at Hobo - if this is for the community as you say - why do dental members keep making veiled jabs at hobo - or some kdf fleet does "this" - wink wink - but we won't say who.

    Come on nabreeki - really? I suggest you rein in those dental remarks if you do want to keep this just about benefiting the community.

    Actual this closer to social democracy, if this was capitalism the big guys would be price fixing to gouge the little guy and sto's fleet banks would be involved in semi illegal schemes that cause the whole system to collapse.

    Sorry if this has been asked, but this thread has gotten very long.

    Are you guys just doing invites for hanger pets? I'm interested in a embassy and/or Dilthium Mine invite(if you've hit T1).

    The offer for starbase invites for elite hangars is carrying on forever. A considerable extension of the orginal 72 hour event.

    Sorry, we're not doing Dilithium mine/fleet ships. Everything else is yours to grab.

    So what do you care, exactly? We're not naming/shaming any fleet, thus no comments need to be reigned in.

    The fact that Dental posters are making references to Hobo and not saying this "event" has nothing to do with an ongoing feud tells just as much as if you mentioned them by name.

    When a Dental poster says a certain KDF fleet with a fully complete T5 starbase does such and such - it is exactly the same as naming them - as most know that Hobo is the only one with a fully completed starbase.

    At this point i don't think it matters any more as you have accomplished your task of cutting off their sales of elite pets - I am sure it was a race and your only regret was that they had a few days/weeks?? to be able to sell them.

    i have said all along that I am happy for the playerbase because I don't like the gated starbase system which restricts high end gear only to those with the EC or being involved with a mega fleet.

    I am happy to hear that you will keep this policy going and hope you do the same with elite weapons - if you have not done so already.

    I am sure that you are aware that my comments have only continued to keep this "event" in the spotlight - so in effect I am helping get the word out in a round about way.

    but I won't comment further as by this point I am sure most players know.

    so with that - lets get on with the game:D

    Many thanks for the invite to your NoP base, and the opportunity to obtain the Elite hangar pets.

    Thanks also for the free gift when I arrived. It was most generous, and very much appreciated. :D

    Regards.
    Beau.

    I've posted before how I took NoP up on this offer. Got some help when I ran into an issue where my Vo'Quv for some reason was not registering, resulting in me not being able to acquire the Qaw'dun BOPs (despite me just using the Vo'Quv in PVP just before entering the NoP Starbase). Anyways, they helped me resolve the issue and I got the awesome Qaw'dun BOPs.

    Again, thanks alot for the access on things I otherwise would not have been able to acquire for many months. My fleet is good and we try to pump our SB along, but we're just not a large fleet.

    Quick guide to pets so people can see if they have the requirements:

    Elite Power Siphon drones, Elite To'duj fighters, and Elite Orion Slavers can be purchased by anyone with any carrier or flight-deck cruiser/escort.

    Elite S'kul fighters and Elite Fer'jai frigates require the Kar'fi carrier.

    Qaw'dun birds of prey require a vo'quv, either standard or mirror.

    Elite Interceptors require the Dacoit flight-deck cruiser.

    Elite Tachyon drones require the Corsair flight-deck cruiser.

    Armoured Marauding Force shuttles require the Marauder flight-deck cruiser.


    If you have any trouble claiming these pets, check your permissions in your fleet, and make sure your fleet has the provisions to buy them. You can also decommission and recommission the c-store carriers to fix hangar permissions, BUT BE CAREFUL. Take all your equipment off them first, and make sure it's a c-store carrier.

    But you know what? I guess it doesn't matter now does it? By being allowed to visit their studios Cryptic has pretty much signed off on you and your fleet haven't they? They've said in deed what most of us have suspected for years. They're not going to stop you. They're not going to correct you. You won. After long last, you really, really won. STO is yours and no one is going to do a thing about it. Congratulations.

    I admit, might take the offer on this later, not to buy something, but because I've never seen a tier 5 Klingon Starbase, and the curiosity rather has me really interested in wanting to see it.

    My fleet has a tier 4 SB on both sides, and I've seen a tier 5 Fed SB, but never a KDF one.
    I remain empathetic to the concerns of my community, but do me a favor and lay off the god damn name calling and petty remarks. It will get you nowhere.
    I must admit, respect points to Trendy for laying down the law like that.

    Thanks for the opportunity to get access to the hangar pets! Due to a bug I couldn't get everything I wanted, but maybe I get another chance when the bug is fixed. Again:

    Thanks!
    Grazie!
    Merci!

    Too bad all my klanks are just fleetless marauders, so I have no particular need of these services at the moment. Still. Hats off to everyone at Nerds of Prey! I haven't been this entertained on the forums since everyone decided to freak the hell out about dilithium rewards for no reason at the Season 7 launch. You guys make all of this a far better experience than it would be otherwise.

    Now... perhaps Dental (or, perish the thought, even Wesley) could open the loving arms of Dear Leader to Federation players? I would find that most amusing.
    Relax.

    Just to let you all know about something we saw on Drozana, this is the attitude of those who will charge you for starbase access. We care about being true to Gene Roddenberry's vision of a utopian post-scarcity future, but not everyone will regard you with the level of respect we think you are due.

    Some of you may have witnessed this, please refrain from naming and shaming the person and fleet involved! Thank you to you all.

    [Local] Xxxxxx@xxxxxxx: who cares for spineless selfrespectless losers buying from you?
    [Local] Xxxxxx@xxxxxxx: we dont want to cope with useless noobs as much as you do :)

    We are dedicated to providing all of you with this service indefinitely. We hope you enjoy the satisfaction of depriving this kind of person of income when you join us on our starbase. Feel free to stick around and enjoy a bloodwine by our fire. Qapla'!

    I don't think the word "free" exists in this person's vocabulary, so I'm guessing it's a cat hating borg.

    Thanks for your support, but please refrain from speculating, I only wanted to make a point. We do not wish to name and shame anyone on this thread. If you agree that this would be counter-productive, please edit out the fleet you named from your post.

    REDdit ALERT (Fed) has agreed to open up their Tier V starbase to everyone. I would just like to say thank you for doing this for our Federation players.

    Join the "NoP Public Service" channel for invites. We hope everyone enjoys their free fleet equipment.
