  • Congrats to the winners! Some great stories there!
  • When I first saw the title and the picture, I was thinking they were going to start selling private cabins on Risa. But, much as that might be interesting (and open a whole new part of the game), I'm less inclined to enter this particular contest. Nice idea, but not for me.
  • Indeed. I was thinking that having "James and Whetu's Excellent Adventure" as the next wargame scenario would have been most righteous! However, no doubt the temporal implications of having Abraham Lincoln lecturing the Federation Council would have been bogus. Oh well. That would have been a simulation that would have…
  • Hey everyone! I was very disappointed to learn that the day/night cycles for Risa and Bajor (Risa in particular) are not simply broken but intentionally locked into day. The sunsets and nighttime of Risa gave a unique setting in the STO universe, one where people could look up at the stars while on a beach with others, and…
  • Hey. Great show, as always! To the questions asked, How do you feel about the possibility of bringing back iconic characters like Bones, Scotty, or Spock in CGI format — much like they did Peter Cushing’s character in Rogue One?: I think the use of an actor's likeness with CGI is acceptable when that actor is unable to…
  • I would very seriously question anyone who thinks that is an Excelsior. The warp nacelles are not the correct proportions, are not the correct type, there appear to be two Secondary hulls that are not the same shape as that on an Excelsior or a rollbar connecting the upper two nacelles, and the Primary hull is either…
  • From my own experience in Trek and Trek gaming, from the FASA game days to this game (and discounting all the ship designs put out as eye-candy without any thought as to actual Trek engineering), the one consistent element seems to be that ships with multiple warp nacelles were ships that needed more power for their…
  • Hey guys! Another great show, with all the news and interesting discussions that make Priority One the go-to podcast for Star Trek! On the issue of a Star Trek Cinematic Universe, that is what Star Trek Horizon and Axanar are/were, and the stories within those two productions were compelling enough to hold the audience and…
  • "Number one, you have the conn. I'll be in my Ready Room." "Uh, sir. That's not a good idea. The Engineers just changed the lights in there and..." "AAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!" "Medical team to the Captain's Ready Room. The Captain has been blinded. Equip for Medusan protocols." Seriously. The effects in space and some other…
  • This sounds like someone new at the company coming up with a 'great idea' that worked 'in another company I was with', then botching it and panicking to try to find a way to cover their backsides. It seems out of character for the devs of this game to allow some players to receive promotional items and not others who…
  • You comment about the bug being 'huge', but then can't understand why they can't fix it instantly? Then, you go on some kind of tantrum about them not caring about their players or their game when they have -repeatedly- demonstrated in the past (and been noted by their playerbase for it multiple times) that they are among…
  • Hey guys! Great show, as always! Priority One is where I listen to find out what is going on in the world of Trek and the game, and you never disappoint. As a comment as to the idea of doing an episode or movie from the vantage point of a species being introduced to the Federation and perhaps not being overjoyed at the…
  • "And, in the places where once happy voices and good times with the dawn, only stillness and the empty spaces of those now gone." Too bad the galaxy doesn't take a holiday too. Guess it's time to get back to saving it....
  • While I might have technical issues with some of the JJverse Trek, it was always still Star Trek to me, no different than the Mirror Universe was Trek. I think everything, from Enterprise to Beyond is part of the Trek universe and should be part of STO. The only thing I find bad about this lockbox is how much truer to the…
  • Great show, as always! I'm saving up for my anti-matter home heating unit as we speak. As to the Community Question: 'What's Your Favorite My Little Pony Character?'.... My favorite is Boris the Groundhog. Yeah, I know his job as head of the Custodian Staff for Ponyville meant he didn't get much screentime, but he is the…
  • Excellent show, as always. Priority One remains the number one podcast every week for me, and never disappoints! What do you think Star Trek Online could do to reinvigorate some of the older, tired queues? I had to give this one some thought, both because of the number of queues in the game and how players at different…
  • Personally, considering what I've seen of other fan-made films, this was an incredible film. They didn't try to depend on fans watching because they used established characters (unlike quite a few fan films that put actors who clearly are -not- the characters they portray into their films), they didn't try to re-tell…
  • "This is not something they can help us with" is not an acceptable response from any technical department when responding to a technical issue that is directly in their department. I have to wonder if the reply was really from someone in Support and not just someone sending out a response to try to quiet things down.…
  • Indeed. I have the same problem. The Fleet Advanced Heavy Cruiser (T6) I had active when the patch went live is not able to be activated (this after logging in and finding myself in a shuttle and having the map load freeze when trying to switch to it). While I can select any other ship, that one is now unusable, and none…
  • Indeed. Same problem here. Found myself in my shuttle, when I tried to switch ships, map load locked up. Upon re-entering the game, found the ship I had active during the patch is inaccessible. It is rather baffling that the devs didn't catch something like this before pushing the patch to live, as it is a rather obvious…
  • So, here is my entry: The U.S.S. Dawnstar (NCC-96427-A) on approach to a very busy station.....
  • Been having this problem for a little over a week, and submitted a ticket. After looking over things, it seems probable it's a problem in the internet pipeline between the computer and PWE servers. I'm East Coast, USA, but it seems to be more based on the pathway your system is using to get to the servers than the physical…
  • Ever since the DDOS/Network issues over the weekend, I can log into STO for about 15 mins, then I lose connection and the launcher will either not load, load slowly, or will fail to connect when I try to launch. I haven't been able to try it on CO yet, but this reminds me a lot of the period when PWE pipelines were being…
  • Yup. Seems the attacks are continuing. Was fine this morning, then dropped in the middle of an episode without ability to relog on since. Clearly, the person responsible will continue to do this, as it costs them nothing to run a bot. So, until the authorities do something, we're out of any PWE game.
  • What I'm curious about is if the new cruiser retains the Advanced Transwarp ability of the Excelsior, or if they dropped it. No mention of it in the blog, so we'll have to wait for the follow-up, which will probably be pointless as it no doubt will be available in the shipyards before the stats are blogged out. Personally,…
  • I think it's more the case that they had the D'Kora bridge already in the game, and so didn't have to do any work to include it as the bridge of the Nandi. Removing things would require work, so that would mean no bridge (as proven by the fact that the Risian ships never got their bridge for this reason). So, count on it…
  • Hmm...we get the chance to obtain a Ferengi ship, and now Ferengi across the galaxy will be able to match the standard of fashion set by the first of their race to make Risa a place of opportunity for profit as well as pleasure? I detect the hand of Quark Enterprises in this year's Festival. :cool:
  • I'm wondering how many people who are expressing disdain for the event ships' stats/boff seating are min/max types. Seriously, a ship that isn't exactly one thing or another to an extreme is not a bad thing. It fills in the gaps between such ships in the established fleets, and puts that ship in a place more unique than…
  • Trendy must have three kinds of headache when reading posts with either no punctuation or a cap letter every other word.
  • Actually, on reflection, it makes perfect sense. The Risians might have had concerns about their cruise liners and fast yachts being too vunerable to piracy and the Borg in past years, so it would make some sense for them to agree to the Consortium's plans to redesign them as pocket warships without giving up their…
