  • I think someone once calculated the chances of an Epic Coupon to be the same as a T6 ship from any other box, of somewhere around 0.5%. From what we can tell the odds are somewhat global, not tied to the individual. Which seems to sometimes improve your chances of seeing an Epic Coupon during a Pheonix Box Weekend or an…
  • It's a 3 pack for $30 or 1 for $15. Not unlike the T6x tokens. So it's $30 to boost 3 characters. Is it worth it? If you want content to explode even faster, maybe? Hopefully they start adding some more challenging stuff at the other end.
  • The Regular Gagarin is one of the best Beam Boats in the game. This one looks like it might be a really good Torp Boat. Which is an interesting switch. They seem to have given us a lot of really good Torpedo Boats this year.
  • The problem with the various novelizations and comics is that they typically fall into some strange places as far as IP Rights, Licensing and Royalties. Far more complex than simply pulling from the episodes. Which themselves can have some complexities with how screwy the CBS/Paramount/Viacom/Secret Hideout rights can get.
  • The Picard Uniforms are currently the ones I would want. I also wish they would revisit the current tailor and make some of the non Fed Outfits actually useable as Uniforms. Like the Ferengi stuff. Maybe broaden the KDF Color Pallett's a bit? Oh and Rios's Pimp Hat as a Uniform Option!
  • 1. Warp nacelles must be in pairs. As Andrew Probert explained in this web site's 2005 interview, "Gene specified to me, in fact, that starship warp engines operate in pairs... because they're codependent.... So in the same breath he negated [Franz Joseph's] three-engined dreadnoughts along with the single-engined…
  • I came to what should have been a rather obvious realization a few years back while reading some of the Eaglemoss Collection Magazines that come with their ships. Back in the day, the main key ship designers. Matt Jeffries, Andy Probert, Ralph MacQuarrie, the ILM team etc were by and large Industrial Designers. They…
  • Just think of the fun to be had naming it? USS Ty'di'Bool USS Eurynol USS Porcelain Bus IKS B'dey
  • A 32nd Century Space Toilet. Remember to be considerate. Always Flush and leave the seat down for the next user. We strongly recomend against firing photon torpedo's while toilet is occupied.
  • Hmmm? Are you on Console or PC? And is it in some way restricted by Race/Faction? There is some weird things with the tailor that I wish they would straighten out at some point. For example I have 2 Fed Aligned Rommies. One Rom, One RomBorg. The Rom can use all Fed Uniforms and clothing elements. The RomBorg can't use the…
  • Off Duty -> Off Duty-Bare Chest -> Upper = Swimsuit Top Retro
  • I can sometimes squeeze in 4 just barely. I'm not a good enough floater pilot to do it routinely. I think most people could easily hit 3 every time.
  • The two Halter tops, the Criss Cross and Sling, and the Mini T are considered acceptable casual dress. Which makes sense. Just as the TOS Mirror top makes a perfectly acceptable Sports Bra type top. The Retro swimsuit is a straight up TOS on screen outfit. So CBS likely didn't have an issue there. Really the only female 2…
  • Better than the Dance is actually cycling HorGahn Hunt and Flying High on 3-5 characters. Ideally with fast Impulsive floaters. Horgahn Hunt will easily net 300 favors in its 15 minute timer, at 5 mins per character. Or if you are really good and can flip 5 characters in at 3 mins per, 500 favors. You can easily cycle 5…
  • Oh gods no. They are seemingly random when they do correctly trigger. You'll hit them square and half the time they won't trigger or I'll get a delayed trigger. The Ramps are almost worst. I've had a few times where they've launched me straight up and more or less left me there.
  • I've gotten two Chu Chu's a couple of times. But it's rare.
  • While the Races are not the best reward return, I do find them as one of the most fun things to do in game. And I generally don't pay any attention to the other racers. I'm just trying to get a good smooth perfect run in each. Doing that I find I place more often than not. I kind of wish the races had a visible timer so…
  • Minuet, Vic Fontaine and the Andy TRIBBLE EMH MK II would probably be on the list. Especially Vic who both knew he was a hologram and was a regular recurring character. Grandpa Rurigan's Village including his Grandaughter Taya from the DS9 Episode "Shadowplay", in which the Holograms were not simply sentient, but were…
  • This is not entirely true. Some pieces of Swimsuits do in fact work outside of Risa.
  • Sexiest/Dirtiest is Subjective. But here are a few tips. 1. A few of the Female 2 piece Swimsuits are also useable as "Off Duty" gear. At least the Tops are. The Mini-T, Criss Cross Halter, Retro and Sling Halter Tops all work as Off Duty Wear. So may be combined with other gear for some interesting casual or post…
  • eh? I run with the newest Stem Bolts Board on 2 toons and the McFly Pheonix Store board on 3 others. My win/loss rate is about the same across all. As in I can and do win or hit top 3 with the older board. The newer boards are faster off the line, but so long as you are hitting the speed boosts along the way the older…
  • The Risa races and other events cycle every few minutes. If you hover over the Summer Event box it will expand to show the next hours activities. There are 2 Powerboard Races and 1 Biathalon every hour. As for being able to compete? Have you ever opened Pheonix Boxes? The ones you get for Dil or as free giveaways on the…
  • Dilithium Sink Ideas. - Upgrade weekends are the most efficient. Run at least one a month. - Good Dil Sinks are all about the Space Barbie. Move some of the more obscure Outfits out of the Lobi Store and into the Dil store. Many of the costumes are things people want, but will never ever buy when they have to horde their…
  • Today's Patch (Thursdat July 1) Broke the floating detached nacelle's on the Crossfield 32c Refit. Is this a bug or a feature?
  • In looking back at the Story Arcs involving J'ula and the Disco era I came to realize something. That Disco era characters are without question the dumbest yet simultaneously self righteous fools in STO. With the Federation Disco characters being among the worst. Look back on it all and calculate out how many lives would…
  • We've gotten some pretty clear indications that T6 refit Oberth and Steamrunners are in the pipeline. I would not be surprised to see a Constellation as well at some point in the not too distant future. Also if they are doing a Steamrunner I would imagine a Saber is probably already on the teams radar. Those two ships seem…
  • I would point you to Apendix Q.038-099.a of the Prime Directive otherwise known as "The Janeway Clause". "We're the Federation! It's Not Evil if WE do it! (Mr Tuvok load those really juicy radiation torpedo's we stole from the Vaaduarr)"
  • Just a heads up. A lot of this might not be STO. With May's Windows 10 Update Microsoft added the XBox Live Tools and Services to EVERYBODY. These startup in the background whenever you start a game, pretty much any game. And in a lot of cases it seems to consume way more resources than it should. And disabling the damn…
  • She destroyed a fully populated Starbase at Seedea. That wasn't Akar. That was her. And no, Starfleet personnel do not count as "active combatants". She did this at a time of peace between the Federation and the Empire. She was and remains a terrorist. Further the Attack on Andoria was not staged by Akar. She brought her…
  • The problem with J'ula is simply nothing involving her felt earned. And L'rel fails several concepts of good storytelling. "Chekov's Gun" being the big one. She's not a character, she's an object to be acted upon. And one pulled out of a Wizards hat at the last minute to resolve a story. And no Al, the player Hatred of…
