    Question. Do you require voice chat?

    Hello,

    No, we have been using the team chat or the actual channel itself.

    It has been brought up to use but we are not sure how the RP element would translate, the RP is NOT a requirement FYI, but up to this point team chat has been ok.

    Ok, it's just as well. I have to play late at night and don't want to disturb the family.

    This channel..this group has made the game wonderful for me. People more concerned about fun and Star Trek than huge damage numbers..its simple pure awesomeness.

    Acknowledged Wailord... will send priority 1 message, sorry trying to get the lingo down ahhaahha!

    I have a question... would the Ambassador class be in consideration for TOS or fit in a group of like the connie, Miranda & Execel?


    Answer: I believe so since Kirk made mention of them in ST:VI Undiscovered Country.


    As for last night, that was fun. We had enough people on the channel, and available, to run a 9-person CE (Normal). For some of the others, we had two Task Forces (4-5 person groups). Hopefully we can get enough people on to do a Starbase Defense or some of the other 20-person events.

    Or, as was suggested last night, run smaller groups in something like the Tau Dewa Patrol.

    Either way, being part of this has made the grindfest funner. Just need to set up my other characters for this as well.

    Likewise.

    One of the things I LOVE about the channel is that the attitude is the polar oposite of the norm.

    Parse requests were forthcoming last night - not so that we could establish how high our DPS was, but so that could establish that it WASN'T too high!

    And I also love that I can keep my Elite phasers etc on my Fleet Rhode Island because, being a Sci ship, DPS was never going to be overwhelming anyway, and I much prefer crowd-control and healing.

    Kyana/Lela it has been a pleasure and honor flying with you! To have you in STB has been nothing short of awesomeness... I look forward to many more STB with you. Thank you for making the game wonderful for me!

    THAT WAS AWESOME!

    What a great group of people! You made my first non-PUG such a pleasure. Everyone were working together; helping each other - outside and during the missions!

    The only problems I had (besides getting my team settings fixed) was getting my Gal-R to not overshoot my destinations.

    Trizeo1, your enthusiasm is infectious.

    Thanks for a great evening, see you again soon!

    (BTW Thanks to everyone for your patience last night while I was getting up to speed.)

    I don't know - your Galaxy was quite the tank, and enjoyed seeing you get stuck-in when was able to turn my attention to it. :-)

    Given how this is working, we may be able to actually set up certain roles depending on who's flying what.

    I know that I would be the Tank in Gal-X with the obnoxious amount of hull it has (still trying to figure out how I'm getting 63k+ hull). Will have to work on BOff abilities a little bit to really make it work.

    Edit: Oh yeah, need an invite sent to @Shrilan if possible, please. Another one of my friends in RL that is interested in this.

    Hey Sirokk,

    Im glad that you were able to come out and try STB out. I do like seeing how helpful people are with giving some loot from the runs to others especially if it's MK X phasers :)

    Well I do LOVE Star Trek and like how I get to try and emulate some of that in the game gets me all giggly like! hhahahha!

    I think the wait is ALWAYS worth it IMO. I'd like to thank everyone for being patient with me as Im not the fastest organizer :o

    Look forward to flyn with ya again Captain Sirokk!

    Based on experiences I have had with some people in this channel I think it is time to start forming PvP matches. The rules are very simple. No Boffs, no colsones of any kind and your gear is all white either default from the ship or stuff from your shipyards vender.

    Whenever Im in a team I do make an effort to balance the team out with my ships as I have escorts, cruisers & sci ships... plus it's super fun to use all my ships. That's a great idea talk amongst the team to see if it is required to balance it out. I know I would always want to have a sci ship, *ahem* NOVA!, on my team.

    When I get in game I will send an invite :)

    To share what characters and ships I can bring for the sake of searching for team balance...

    My 3 Fed characters are VA, each are Sci, Tactical and Eng. My main, the best one I am at using is the Vulcan Eng. I have a Klingon that's a step or two from 50 and Level 8 Romulan.

    Tier V Ships:
    Cruisers: Ambassador, Galaxy-R, Excelsior
    Science: Nebula, Vesta-Sci (3-pack)
    Escorts: Prometheus(AE), Chimera, Mirror-Patrol Escort

    I also have other non-Fed and lower-Tier Fed ships.

    Most of my gear is Omega, MACO and Adapted MACO. Mix of energy types, MK XI Blue or better.

    I spend most of my time with my Eng in a cruiser. It's the most satisfying being able to tank, deal some decent damage and heal teammates.

    Had an amazing time guys, the synchronized warp outs and ins were really fun. And with everyone forming up on the Federation's Flagship cruiser at a end of each, so cool to see.

    Had a bit of RPing going on, and it certainly felt like Trek.

    Unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to try out my Cheyenne refitted for torpedo support, but I hope everyone else had fun.

    (Really felt like a serious task force, an Odyssey, a Soveriegn, two Defiants, and my little Cheyenne.)

    I'm working on setting up a TS3 server for this (at least part of it). Once I have it set up, I'll send Trizeo the information to pass along to others.

    Will only work for a maximum of 20 people to start.

    Had yet another fun time Trekking with you all last night.

    I can't hype this channel up enough. It's really just a lot of fun to throw off the shackles of the "serious" MMO player for a bit and just revel in doing Star Trek things with like minded players.

    I'm a terrible RPer and even I try to get in on it a bit.

    It was funny, last night I overshot the mark when leaving and then when warping out, my ship did a weird thing I'd never seen before on the leave map sequence. It elongated, went forward and then took a sharp 90 degree turn right as it streaked away.

    Anyways, I also saw mention of ground missions. And was wondering if there'd be any protocols for those? Like my one guy has Mk X MACO set, with the phaser rifle. And a sword. But it'd be fun to go back, and re-equip phaser pistols or something. Still he's an engineer so he rarely goes anywhere without either turrets, turrets, turrets, drones, turrets, more turrets and a mortar. Or mines, mines, mines, eventually a mortar and more mines.

    And a sword.

    I have one for my fleet I am bringing back online tonight if you want to use that instead. I just upgraded that server so it should be good to go. I just, literally, need to turn it all on.

    This was pretty fun.

    I'm still suggesting we try the Dyson sphere contested zone/space battlezone. 2 teams of 2 should be able to split into 2 and hold all 4 points, then regroup on the dreadnoughts.

    Also, was a Vigilant refit, actually.

    The Commander-level Defiant surprised me - it's a FAST little ship, especially compared to the Fleet Escort and the Fleet Patrol Escort.

    Hey Steve,

    I'd be up for this, please do not take offense if I do say no as I mentioned to you before I'm not much of a pvpr but did have fun when we had our matches.

    Hey,

    Sorry about last night... wanted to fly with you before going to bed but it seemed by the time I got back on you were already gone.

    Tonight I will be on for a while so hopefully I get to see your Cheyenne in action!

    Hey guys,

    I would totally be up for this and I thank you for doing this for the STB channel.

    The ONLY thing I would see wrong and wrong is the not right term is people talking over each over and what not when doing the RPing part but I'm not opposed to trying it out thru comms... much easier to talk than type especially in the heat of a battle.

    I just ask that you don't make fun of me when I trip over my words trying to be all Picard like! hahahah..

    Thanks again guys for helping me out with STB!

    Im glad your having fun as much as I am!

    Feel free to let people know... the more people on the more chances of getting some good groups together.

    TBH this has taken over any grind of mine... the only thing I really end up grinding is my daily Dill cap but playing STB style is just way fun right now.. not like I need to grind MK X weapons! hahaha!

    I myself am new to the world of RP but I've been having fun with it especially when a whole team is doing it. You don't have to be good at it as long as your having fun... I won't judge and I hope I don't get judged.

    That warp thing has happened to me plenty of times!

    If we do end up doing ground stuff in STB the gear can be the best of the best I think. I'm not much for doing ground stuff but did enjoy the Dyson ground stuff when it first came out and I do the occasional colony or Defera stuff to change it up once in a while. I was thinking of the ground stuff actually being tied into some of the space stfs we do.. for example Khit ground & Khit space.... have a full mission thing you know?... just a thought

    Hey risingstar2009,

    Totally agree with your setting up roles PRIOR to the mission starting, we can leave that to whomever formed the team.

    I think I forgot to invite your friend, my apologies. Ill do that when I get on later tonight.

    I'll be on later today to team up, can't wait to get started.

    As for roles, I'm all for that. We could get some psuedo-structure going in some places, make ourselves a "real" battle group, so to say.

    Trust me... same here!

    For the most part it seems MOST of us know what the STF is about. For example Khit, before the mission we call which side probes and there you go. Last night we did a pug wth the Indy, Defiance & California (Intriped, Defiant, Galaxy) and it was a pretty long battle. We did things like call the probes but more less let the RP factor take over. What I mean by that we destroyed the 1st gen and then I mentioned I would go to the 2nd one and when I knew the borg cube was coming up I asked for assistance... after the take down of that our fellow captain requested assistance with the probes then I was ordered to the other side to assist.

    The roles, I think, should be defined by the TF captain and as more of us get our other ships going we can also get a feel of what the mission requires before hand. For example if I got into a team with all Galaxy's... well I would switch up to my Defiant or MVAE to give the escort punch.

    This will all be a WIP but I think the essence of it is coming out and to my hopes it's what I wanted to gain out of it.... some good ol' Star Trek pew pewn fun!

    I love seeing just how quickly this channel is growing/spreading, and that a light RP element has grown organically out of it.

    Player roles in ships are more than likely going to happen not out of us demanding them or neccesitating them, but instead naturally out of the RP and need to the lower DPS. I feel like in our need to emulate what we have seen on the screen or read in books, we are this a Star Trek game that it could have, should have been.

    Oh and just the general kindness of everyone has been astonishing. Everyone that I have had the pleasure of flying with has been far and away more helpful that I could have hoped. If there is anyone new to STO looking over this thread join this channel as I did. You owe it to yourself.
