How is this possible?

After reading about the new Temporal Agent event coming out, I decided to pop on over using an old character I still had back in that time. This player was a fleet admiral, in a fleet, had a T6 ship and maxed. Hows this possible?

    Looks like an old glitch/exploit that was fixed. But that player some how got around the fix. As for the T6 ship one can be used during that era if it is certain store ones. One of the mods should take a look at that and move it up the ladder.

    When they made the changes to the captains that are "stuck in the past", they may not have made them retroactive?

    If you have cross-faction flying unlocked, you can use any T6 C-Store ship while still in the TOS zone now. Also, while it doesn't sound very fun, you can still level up your character by repeating the TOS missions without doing the last TOS mission (which flicks you forward in time) and level up very slowly that way. You can't do much else while still there with the Account Bank, Dil Store, Event tab, TFOs and most other things being locked out, so it's kinda a pointless challenge to do so.

    Even with all the restrictions to curb the exploit some people have a character that stays there just for the ambience, sort of like Scotty bringing up the TOS Enterprise bridge on the holodeck in TNG to revisit it.

    don't suppose you happened to get the person's @handle by chance? don't post here if you did but PM it to me. Unless that person has done several of the missions and unlocked doffing during an XP weekend, then cheesed some doff assignments, that shouldn't be possible.

    I'm speculating a bit but perhaps the player splurged a lot of money on the Discovery legendary bundle with the L65 boost and the ship, and invited the character to a fleet from an alt who was already a fleet leader?

    Whatever the case, lets leave this guy alone. We really need to have the mods push this up to Cryptic? Is this guy doing anything detrimental to the game? Seriously?

    If this is what the player enjoys, then let him/her have it. No need to 'release the hounds' for someone doing something so harmless.

    Discovery is good, it's you that sucks.

    Agreed.

    There are plenty of bugs that could be fixed first anyway. This one doesn't affect anyone else in a negative sense. Just leave him be.
