    The stats for those ships are good. I MUCH prefer the feddie bear version tho for looks. I still think the KDF one is wierd...and not in a good way.

    Hmmm... I wonder where Discovery will go with the "skeleton fish" looking concept.
    That is what those ships in the link you sent me to look like: skeleton of fishes.

    They wouldn't use that for Romulan, would they?

    The Qugh in markhawkman's picture reminds me of the shape on those Sarcophagus ones, when you see it from the top. Which end is the front?

    The in-game lore is that it's kinda like Geordi's visor or something.

    Well this is a pic of the place the game dumps you when you beam up while in first city, and AFAIK all the ships are facing the same way. :p So front is the side facing towards the top-right corner. (also unless my guess is wrong, the pic has, 4 Qugh, a Sarcophagus, a Tadaari, a Qin, and a Tarantula)

    I really hope they allow the Federation BOFF to use other uniform parts. I've picked it up anyway, but will not be using it very much at all if I can't put her in the same uniform as my other bridge officers. I'm assuming this is an oversight and will be fixed eventually.

    I noticed this as well and was a bit surprised. Knock on wood...

    LOL! I have no clue what any of those ships look like by the name. I am NOT a ship woman!

    I had problems with identification of the silhouettes of tanks and aircraft, too. In the Army I was supposed to be able to identify friendlies from enemies. I would be dead if I had to figure that out on the fly...without the flash cards.

    Would learn faster, though.

    Absolutely no idea where to find my T'Kuvma uniform. I read that there's supposed to be a separate category for it but I can't find it.
    On either the Head or Uniform tabs in the tailor you will see in the upper right of the part where you choose costume parts a dropdown list, by default it's usually set to "Uniform" for Boffs.

    No idea why this can't be a uniform, but well that's what it is.

    Also, the Qugh is popular enough that I was able to snap this shot in orbit of Qo'noS.

    I know where it's supposed to be. I looked there before posting. That's the problem. It's not there.

    Ah, that, the costume category is broken now, but here's where it's supposed to be:

    Well I went and bought the pack. As I did it with converted dilithium it didn't cost a penny, now all I need is another Phoenix event to bring the exchange rate back down.

    I can't help it, it totally looks like a parking meter to me, even has the little exit for the change coins / parking ticket.
    It should have a placate buff, because the oponents will spend a lot of attention searching for the slot to insert the coins...
    We want to keep the foundry.

    I have to wonder how often she gets pranked off hours by people sticking magnets to her head or playing the drums on her.
    Mad Science means never stopping to ask "What's the worst that could happen?"

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options like rolled sleeves, adding a "thickness" modifier to hair, and letting the complexion affect the entire body, not just the head.
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts.
    4) Terran Empire event similar to AoY, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    5) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    So, an "extra" in the background was wearing it for a scene (or two) in the Pilot of Discovery. Never gave an explanation for it or what it is used for. At least, not yet?

    Interesting...they paired it with a Tactical vest for Feds in the game....in this picture she is not wearing it. At least, not from what I can tell.

    She's not. The tactical vest was added to the BOFF because of the overwhelming demand for it. My guess is that they did it to give the players the vest without having to add it in as a separate uniform part in the pack.

    I am still torn on this, buy buying it, or the ships in the C-Store; we need to incentivize Cryptic to add more to the C-store and rely less on loot boxes and other cash-grab methods. I would love to see a model where lobi are offered in store. therefore all ships are somehow purchasable through the store.

    But unfortunatly like most developers, I am afraid that we have to pull them away from the lootboxes kicking and screaming. The first step of that is supporting what they do offer in the C-store.

    That is why I am torn.
  • geezerpunkgeezerpunk Member Posts: 133 Arc User
    I have been watching Discovery, but not digging into everything about the show, like I did for the other series. So my information may be lacking, but the helmet has not really been defined in the show all that much. Except that it is a high speed interface to the ship. It is apparently only the one person that uses it, so weather it is to make up for a disability or what hasn't really been gone into on the show.

    I also don't know if there are people assigned to other ships using similar helmets as an experiment, or if it is only on the Discovery. I just kind of view it as a Federation experiment in trying to link an officer directly to the ship for faster response time.

    Doesn't cost a penny?

    7,350 Zen for the fully discounted Pack. At current Exchange rates that is about 2.4 million Dilitium. About 300 Character days worth of refinement. How many hours did it take to accumulate that?

    That times $10 an hour is the cost. ;)

    Not as many as you might think- for one thing I bought my Zen during the last Phoenix event when the dil exchange rate was far more favourable. ;)

    For another I have 11 (now 12) active toons all having healthy reserves of dilithium ore thanks mostly to the admiralty system.

    It'll be a while before I get to the contents though, have a bunch of prior masteries to claim first! :D

    Yah across all my toons I can pull 6k-7k zen a month just doing admiralty. So 30 min a day to run through them all over say 45 days, is maybe 22 hours playing a game I already play. Just took 30 min out of my game play to get "free" dilithium/zen. So doesn't cost a penny. If you were JUST logging on to farm dilithium, I guess......22 hours worth of my time. But since I'm playing for an hour or two every day, its for all intents and purposes free zen.

    Still wasn't worth it to get the pack. Bad deal compared to what's been released before.

    Well I finally got the money saved up, but the sale price is gone. Oh well; I can go buy some audio equipment if they don't want me to buy it.

    On the plus side, the Phoenix Event always causes the exchange rate to drop so if you have the dil, now is the time to buy! :D

    Yes, some person believes that 35 years ago, a person from CBS (can't really recall who, when, or where) showed up and stole the Tardigrade concept from them. :(

    Hi I don’t know if this has been asked but since the players on pc have already received the option to buy the discovery operations bundle when are players on both Xbox one and PS4 going to get it? Thank you.
  • psytce0002psytce0002 Member Posts: 107 Arc User
    .

    Cryptic plans to make the combat pet account wide so buy now & cross your fingers?

    Was this on the live stream, I watched most of it but never heard this statement and the pack still states it's once per account?
    https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11084823-the-discovery-operations-pack!


    Yeah, Kael said on the live stream that they will eventually make the combat pet an account unlock.

    Still, I wouldn't go buying anything until it's actually done. A verbal intent on a live stream isn't enough when you're talking the type of outrageous price this pack costs. Buy at your own risk, but if you want the combat pet for your account you should wait until it's actually implemented. If that takes until the sale is over, then fine.. skip it.

    Just remember the Starter Pack Bait and Switch scam.. you're not working with a company that's afraid to skirt the line when it comes to their customers. Keep that in mind before you type in a credit card number.

    Has anyone noticed if that has happened yet?

    From folks I've talked to in game, it is still a single character unlock. I don't know how long it's been since it was 'said' it'd be made an account unlock, but I'd guess more than a month at this point. They really need to live up to their word and get it done.
