  • They did say on stream the ship would be available on the 14th (at least on PC, I expect console players may have to wait a bit) and the level boost is a little different since it also includes 2 tier 5 reputation buyouts. The blog for it is now up and contains one minor error: This isn't the first Vanguard ship without a…
  • Update from Twitter: https://twitter.com/trekonlinegame/status/1494395947853352969?cxt=HHwWksComc3MlL0pAAAA
  • They posted on Twitter that they're aware of the problem and looking into it FYI. If I was them, I'd give out campaign progress partly based on Borg event progress once the problem is fixed.
  • Other methods include making and selling R&D items, (Omni beams, Aegis set items, TR-116B) selling stuff you get from lockboxes but won't use, or even selling lobi stuff. Like ships. Some people may sell T6 lockbox ships or Promo ships too. T5 Infinity lockbox ships aren't worth so much, but by the same token aren't as…
  • Verity is a Legendary ship, which by definition includes the consoles of it's previous variations, so that's not a perfect example as these aren't legendary ships. That said, I do think they ought to be able to use the consoles from their other variants. Also, the new consoles have no ship restrictions, so you can use them…
  • Bonuses aside, there's the question of how KDF allied chars would even get the console, since as far as I know there's no T5 versions of the two ships, and they probably won't make any. Right now the only way they could get the console is to get it from the T5 Sutherland, and it's the Fed version of the console so won't…
  • Just as a bit of trivia, Gamma recruit was run in 2018, 2019, and as mentioned in 2021. Before 2021, Delta was last done in 2015, while Temporal was originally done in 2016. Delta and Temporal both needed work before they could be rerun due to arc changes and removed missions. Gamma got some reward changes in 2021, but as…
  • From what's been said previously on Ten Forward, I think we can expect all the recruit events will be re-run every so often. (Comments from the decision makers basically saying, "Why did we spend all this time and money on this content if we're not using it?" in reference to the older recruit events.) KDF Recruit was last…
  • As a workaround, I'd say do your window shopping with the coupon banked. Only take it out when you've decided what to buy. Also note that the T5 coupon and maybe T6 coupon also seemed to interfere with the operation of the Purchased/Not Purchased search filter, since everything shows up with 0 price with the coupon, which…
  • Just saw this, to access the chat and fly-in settings click the button on the chat box then click Notification Settings.
  • On PC at least, this was added a while ago. Bringing up the Admiralty/DOFF window (or I think talking to the manage ships NPC) should add all zen store admiralty ships that character has access to. (Meaning if you don't have Cross Faction Flying unlocked, you shouldn't get KDF zen store ships on a Fed char. If you do have…
  • Just a little note about the Da Vinci's experimental weapon, while it doesn't currently respect Tactical mode on ships like the Titan, it does however respect the autofire on/off option, so if you turn autofire off for it (and aren't pressing a key that would cause it to fire) it won't fire on a target unless you select…
  • In case you didn't get the previous explanation, Escort type ships have experimental weapon slots. (Like the recently released T6 Steamrunner or the Prometheus line.) He didn't clarify if there'll be a sale, but as previously mentioned, it has been mentioned on stream that the ships would be available separately and in the…
  • A request for a weapon visual slot has been mentioned in chat during Ten Forward streams, but due to the way the system currently works, it would be a bit more complicated to do then the shield/engine/deflector visual slots. I don't think they entirely ruled it out as an idea, but it's probably not a high priority. It…
  • The .demo files are text files, you can likely edit them to change the name/registry of the ship in order to make a video using demorecord. (I know the values are in the files, I haven't tried editing them.) Edit: Oh, and one likely reason for certain names/numbers being unavailable, is probably due to legal stuff in the…
  • Mirror Gagarin event has nothing to do with the event campaign. Likewise the Risa Luxury Cruiser is also not part of the Event Campaign. I believe there should be one upcoming event for the event campaign, so you should get your prize then.
  • Assuming you are launching the game through Steam, when you actually try to buy Zen it should bring up a Steam purchase window saying how much it will cost in whatever currency you use in Steam, (possibly including tax) `assuming you have money in your account. Don't know for sure how currency conversion for STO works, but…
  • I think this is a normal thing for people buying zen with credit cards, to guard against people buying stuff, selling it, and doing a chargeback.
  • One of the benefits of buying a Legendary ship is getting the consoles of it's variants. As far as I know, the only Nova variant with a console is the Rhode Island, so I think a Legendary Nova would come, if it does, sometime well after at least one T6 version is released. It is just speculation at this point. On one hand,…
  • A little observation about the timing of this update: Prodigy premiers October 28th. Which makes me think that maybe the T6 Nova will be the Protostar's class. (I've been thinking something like that could happen ever since I saw the Protostar.) Maybe there will be news on Ten Forward tomorrow, or on next week's Ten…
  • Commercial airline travel also used to be pretty expensive, (relatively speaking) but now middle class families go on trips together, when there isn't a pandemic going on. It costs a lot of money to get new ventures/products off the ground, but after that it can be easier to expand them and eventually lower the cost.
  • Subspace Vortex. It's a lockbox skill, available via Infinity BOFF training manual pack, or from the old Xindi-Terrestrial lockbox.
  • In Counterpoint, recently, I think I've experienced these issues where my ship has gotten stuck without visibly running into anything. Think it affected Mirror DS9 and DS9 both. Can't say I've had any issues with the regular DS9 social map though.
  • Reworking interiors and fixing bugs in an existing interior are not necessarily the same thing. (Much of the work in making interiors or bridges after all is the 3D modelling, which is already done for the TOS interior.) As far as Andromeda, the gag real DVD extras have a few Hercules references, (like Kevin Sorbo picking…
  • The dil/zen exchange is flooded with dil so people who want zen have to wait. Normally it was the other way around and people trading zen for dil, at the current rate, had to wait. At the time I'm making this post, there are around 270 thousand zen worth of dil offers queued up waiting for people to trade zen for dil.…
  • You claim the rewards from the zen store promo tab first. Look for: Fanatical Charity Promotion 2021 Tier 1 and, if you got it, Tier 2. Then you should be able to claim the ships via zen store/shipyard.
  • Haven't seen that happen, but a possible workaround would be to try and do gravity type skills near the ship but not centered on it. (I have however seen a ship get stuck on the outer edge of the outer ring, wasn't inside just couldn't go forward and couldn't find reverse, wasn't hard to destroy either.)
  • Maybe the text is wrong if you have bought all the fleet slots. All the characters I've checked (Including a fed Alien char) have the proper tooltip text, but none of them have bought all the fleet slots.
  • Fleet Research Lab doesn't give Personal Space/Ground trait slots, it gives Reputation Space/Ground trait slots (active or passive) and a Starship Trait slot. Totally different sections. Hovering over the slots shown in the pics show a tooltip that says "Unlock by applying an Elite Captain Training Token to your Captain."
  • New Steamrunner variant coming, so this one apparently got split up into multiple pieces now for customization, which causes these issues. (People went through the same thing with Atrox when Aspero was released.)
