    Free stuff is always good.

    Unfortunately it seems the trend is to give us free stuff simply to prop up/promote terrible iterations of Star Trek.

    Well at least we're getting them appropriately right as DOffs...

    As to their Active abilities...
    Without knowing the percent chance, all but Mariner's seem usable, to some extent.

    Now I wonder how long it'll be 'till we see the STLD uniforms and Rutherford's eye accessory character available...?

    Cryptic, would you actulaly like me to spend actual Money? It's Simple:
    • Full, Story-driven, select from start 1-50 Klingon Side
    • Scrap current Lock Box & Lobi system for something more reasonable
    • Expand Dil and Rep/Fleet Marks to regular story content

    One could say what goes on in the lower decks stays in the lower decks but that isn't always the case especially when you involve a "monster of the week".

    As for the eye accessory (and hairstyles)... I hope they didn't get lazy and render the heads as unique one-piece models...

    I wonder if they will add the California Class? And is this that image a possible tease for that?

    I haven't watched Lower Decks yet, but it looks like expectations are set too high for comedy cartoons. It's not as if it was meant to be the next Akira or Gundam.

    As for other recent shows, it's as good as we're going to get for the foreseeable future.

    Yea, I was surprised they were Uncommon quality, given the Show is based common officers doing more essential work, on a far less popular vessel. Though I'm sure ever Crew even their has a few special or more gifted Officer's, just as we all have special gifts or talents.

    It be great to see Uniforms at some point, in some form or fashion. I've wondered as the series launches this week, if it might even spawn or inspire a few other Lower Deck items as well.

    Still I'm going to try to enjoy the show, even if it's got a comic twist or spin to it; and am still greatly anticipating it, as many are just happy to see more Star Trek options!

    With Discovery I'm enjoying the series overall, S2 was better than S1 imo but the second time I binged S1 it wasn't as bad as I had remembered. With the Picard series I enjoyed it better, but found the finale lackluster. I just haven't been able to become hyped for this Lower Decks not sure if that's because it is a cartoon or something else.

    Regardless, many thanks to Cryptic for the free DOFFs! Good useful DOFFs & Specialization Points I always struggle to obtain so this is welcomed.

    Common doffs can die on missions, so people would be afraid to use them. Uncommon are still as common as dirt, so they aren't special.

    Still not entirely sure this is not somehow related to April 1st.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    What is not clear is if this will be char o account unlock... should be account... so i dont have to claim them on all my chars... because that will take a LONG time, but didn't find any information of that and if it is reclaimable..

  • rattler2rattler2 Member Posts: 53,036 Community Moderator
    Odds are it will be an account unlock. I still got that Niel Falconer DOff, as well as access to I think Ang the Vicious from back when they tested Nukara Prime.
    And Cryptic has moved away from the character unlocks for these giveaways.

    Nope. Klingons will be getting more revamped content and stuff later. This is just a tie in to the release of Star Trek: Lower Decks.
    They did something similar with Discovery (Uniforms), Picard (Seven's outfit and hair), and the Kelvin Timeline (Admiral's uniform).

    Noted this line: "Our med bay is already overstaffed, ok?"

    Over staffed means you have more medics than you need... or maybe more medics than the facility has room for...

    Even Mariner's TBH. on, off, on, off, on. so you end with SS, and if you're taking fire the blinking might absorb a few hits too.

    Wow, an Orion doff without Seductive as a trait, that's kinda rare for STO :p And here I thought the push would be to wave Tendi around as a reason to allow the same thing that was done for Worf. After all, you can for a fee play Klingons on fedside. Why not Orions if the show supports it? :p​​
  • foxman00foxman00 Member Posts: 1,119 Arc User
    For you lot asking about the Uniform. Ambassador Kael responded in a reddit/sto thread regarding it.

    "We plan to do the uniform, but this is the giveaway for the show because this is what we could do with the time we had. :)"

    We are not even done with the year. We already have Year of the Klingon Part 1, more is coming soon. Also, what do you have against the Federation? They are not freaks.

    I think he is implying that the year of the Klingon should be exclusive for Klingons. Nothing at all additional for Federation, Romulan or Jemmie's in any shape or form.

    Which if that's it, is plain stupid.

    Kahless knew to come in out of the rain.

    Kahless would not bankrupt Cryptic by driving away the 70% of players who prefer Federation content.

    I would have thought blue, because they are the kind of rare idiots who survive their own stupidity by sheer luck :lol:

    Anyway, getting free doffs is great, especially since at least three of my newer characters got hit with the no initial crew bug (talking to the Caitian or the Klingon who usually gives them produces nothing) so their crews started out as just the cadet event ones, a few c-store doff packs I had stacked up from a previous giveaway or bought, or the occasional one mailed from another character, whichever I had available.

    FYI you can also buy randomly-generated and mailable DOFFs with fleet credits.

    True, though I am not in that much of a hurry so I am just doing the regular personnel officer recruitment stuff and passing along extras from other characters as needed. I had enough in the packs and whatnot to at least get R&D going and a few of the space and ground things running, and I would have used the packs to bolster their crews anyway.

    The actual starting crew doffs stink anyways(1 green and 15 commons I think?). I can throw together a better starter bundle from extras on other characters. At least that'd be green or better.

    I like the joke of making these green quality. they're the only named uniques that are green :p
