Forgot about the EV suit thruster bug. Managed to walk all the way to where you needed to go up to ledge and that stopped me. One would think we could walk up a wall since we're wearing magnetic boots :p

Anyway, not too big a deal. I posted a bug report and my J-H will have to make do with the Inhibiting polaron beams from Dominion Rep. They do quite well, actually in conjumction with the space set from Home.
Now a LTS and loving it.

    I know this. I've been playing since around LoR, thank you :)

    I was just venting in a good-natured kind of way.

    This is also the first mission-breaking bug I've run across. Most others don't bother me.

    Well, there was that one bug that broke Frozen, but it's fixed now.

    Well, looks like BTR is still broken.

    When I reached the end of the space battle and beamed to Ops, it was the New Ops, with no Kurland to talk to. There were buttons to contact Enterprise and Loriss, but once I spoke with them the game didn't recognize this and check them off.

    Yes, I put in a post in the bugs forum. Getting ready to send a ticket as well.

    Yikes, I remember it being broken like that shortly after the DS9 revamp so early 2018. Some bugs never get fixed :(

    I vaguely recall there being some workaround, but I can't remember what it was. Or if it was just "sometimes it works so play the whole thing x times to succeed once."

    If you search PC bug reports you might be able to find old topics on it.

    Just curious but why even post? Neither of your posts dealt with the actual thread topic & were more just negative rhetoric on STO overall & an attack towards the original poster. Granted I have to concede to contributing to that very thing now, but was curious of your goal with those posts?

    I for 1 am thankful for the thread/posts since I learned about that supposed EV thruster "bug" so I now know to avoid that mission for now.

    I think last time I played it, it did have the thruster bug. But I was able to complete. Kurland was in his office looking out into space.

    I wonder if the thruster bug was due to setting up the code for the Red Angel activation thing, since it also has the same extended tray as activating an EV suit.

    That's possible about the thruster thing. Still, with the workaround I was given I was able to get to the end.

    Still, the game should have marked that I talked to Shon and Loriss, and it didn't. Unless I have to talk to Kurland first. I may go back and see if I can find him. He sure wasn't in Ops.

    Thank you! That's what I needed to do was talk to Kurland. And yes, he was in that office. I guess last time I played the ep it was still part of the main storyline and not an Available mission.

    Many thanks! Now that I know how to get around the kinks I can play it for the whole set of beams and maybe a couple cannons and whatnot.

    Yes, I don't mind playing the mission. "Kurland Here" doesn't bother me at all ;)

    Its a meme.

    Anyways I just wish that the Dominion Polaron wasn't such a pain to get, and that there were other options besides just dual cannons and beam arrays.

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind some DBBs and turrets/DHCs

    But I'll take what I can get right now.

    That would be SO great if Cryptic expanded the selectable option types.

    Just about everything they relegate to the "available" tab gets bugged in some way.

    What is really annoying is that there is no skip function so just going for the polaron array takes something like six missions (several of which are especially annoying, like the "Of Bajor" step-and-fetch and the shuttle mission) instead of only one, which makes the reward somewhat lacking by then. It would have been better to have kept them in the episodes tab and just have the whole thing skippable for those who don't want to bother with it (same with Spectres, it really looses relevance when kicked to endgame even though it is one of the best of the old episodes, especially since it makes the Andorian phasers practically worthless by then).

    Besides expanding the selectable option types as foppotee suggests, it would be good if they matrixed the rewards so instead of repeating the exact same mission to get a set that is currently all stacked on one, you have the option to chose those items in other missions of the string. That matrix idea might be a problem though depending on their database design.

    Most of the missions aren't so bad, and the AA makes the shuttle mission that much easier as it melts the bees and gives you time to shut off the sensor nodes in one sweep instead of having to start over.

    Other than that, there isn't much about the 2800 arc that I really dislike, including Of Bajor. I got most of it done in one swoop up to getting to the Gamma Quadrant before shutting off for awhile and finishing it the next day.

    The new KIDD and DOT-7 drones helps out when you're doing BTR.

    I'd prefer to take a Point Defense with me in Op Gamma. Practically oneshots the swarmers. For added comedy take the full Cardi console set from the Cardi Intel ships.

    I have that full Cardassian console compliment on my Elachi Qulash (all Elachi turrets) ship + the M'Chla's Graviton Displacer, the S'torr's Chains of Fire, Gravity Well, Charged Particle Burst, & + more for some fun piloting. I think of it as my space spider. That 3 console set is pretty useful & having all 3 making the 1 min cooldown is extra beneficial.
  • echattyechatty Member Posts: 5,534 Arc User
    I don't have any of those ships or consoles. Still, now that I've played through everything and don't need the ship stuff I can just replay BTR a few times to get what I really wanted.

    Thanks for the tips, though.

    I think the Point Defense Console comes off the T3 Thunderchild so... shouldn't be too difficult to get.

    The point defense console is also in the Phoenix store so it is easy to get without having to buy a ship.

    It's still playable, you just need to slot the thruster in your big tray. Bring up your powers list and it'll be in there.

    Which brings us to an odd omission: why on Terra isn't Dom-polaron the default type Dominion operators have access to at ship gear stores?

    Because they only come in beam array and dual cannon flavors. Whereas normal Polaron comes in all flavors.

    Hypothesis: This is Polaron with an extra Tetryon proc. Maybe it represents Dominion research into hybridizing their tech with Breen tech? It could be experimental weaponry from a bygone era.

    I equip the Shuttle with two Omnis as the Weapons in addition to those Point Defense Consoles. I never did try it with slotting the Point Defense Protocols for that Mission.
