  • Just like with the Akira, I own all the current versions that are available. I'm not gonna pay any amount just for a Skin.
  • With the increase in max item Mark to Mk XV, will items that we used the Ultimate Tech Upgrade on automatically become Mk XV or will we need to go through the Upgrade process with it?
  • I'm going to wait for some of the reviews on the higher end models before shelling out my hard-earned cash for a couple of the ships I want (thankfully, only one is on the 'Not Available' list) as the current price is too high.
  • Good questions all around. When I first joined STB (Star Trek Battles), it was more focused on Team Play and appearing as cannon as possible. That mainly meant using faction/species specific weaponry. Consoles were a non-issue so long as you kept under a certain dps limit (which has been increased or removed as of Season…
  • "You're Good Ash. I'm Bad Ash. You're a goody little two shoes, goody little two shoes, goody little two shoes. "Good? Bad? I'm the one with the gun." BLAM!!!
  • This is a fairly typical response for an impersonal apology, and about the best you're going to get given the medium for the conversation. If you were able to speak to some one directly or in person, you would be able to tell the difference if they were truly sorry for the TRIBBLE up or not. In the end, you got what you…
  • Just the weapon builds are limited. We've run all variety of ships. Depending on what I feel like flying, I'll switch between ships like the JHAS, JHDC, Tholian Recluse, Risan Corvette, or the multitude of Fed ships I have on my roster. Fed = Phaser (AP for Wells, Mobius, and Aeon), Photon, Quantum, or TriCobalt KDF =…
  • It's cause you're downloading the rest of the game instead of having to download map after map when you play. Believe it or not, it does make map transition faster, and less likely to crash due to map server not responding.
  • The closest thing right now is the Gateway website. Unless a 3rd party does an app, I doubt we'll ever see one for the iPhone, Android, or Windows phones/tablets (at least those not strong enough to run STO itself.
  • To the OP: Items given out with Pre-orders, Deluxe, Collectors Editions are sometimes made available to all players after a time that is negotiated with other companies. This may happen to all the special items, but it is not guaranteed for all of them. Threatening to sue Cryptic/PWE will probably cost you more that…
  • I primarily run the Elite Yellowstones on my Dreadnought for the CC factor. Allows the Lance to inflict some real damage. I use the Delta Flyers as an optional loadout and have seen some nice assist in numbers with them. Best in terms of raw DPS is tied between Swarmers and Scorpions. Nothing else comes close.
  • Weapons that you have are fine. We can run a Parser to see where you currently sit on DPS output and help you adjust it if need be. Usually it just involves dropping your weapon power rating. Is your forum handle your in-game handle? If not, please post your in-game handle or email one of the Admin's (@handles in very…
  • It's not a KDF Operational Title. It was more in reference to the fact that Martok had Overall Operational Command of the Allied Forces during the Dominion War.
  • Would be nice if they brought back the reusable batteries. That should be in the crafting system.
  • I think it varies cause I didn't lose anything when I was a f2p player for a while due to lack of funds. My new alts after I went f2p still received their bonuses (re-train tokens, VA ship, etc., etc.,). I didn't have to buy the account bank or ec cap increase either. But, that may be due to the fact that I joined the game…
  • The NCC-XXXXX is nothing more than a number to help the bean counters keep track of ships instead of using the name. It has nothing to do with the date the ship was put in to service.
  • No. Star Fleet Vessels are designed to be adaptable via upgrades and have a standard service life of 100 years with routine maintenance and several overhauls. Only reason to retire a ship is that it no longer serves a purpose, the reason it was needed has vanished, or the design is outdated by new ships coming on line.…
  • Its is unique to Gold/Sub/LTS members get over f2p players.
  • I'll add in my thanks as well. I've been in the game since Season 2 came out (and I still remember when you had to spec in to a specific ship class for an Engineering Skill). While I haven't always cared for some of the content, nor some of the update changes, I am happy to see the game progress forward since PWE took it…
  • To play Farmville STO, of course.
  • Yes. I frequently do it to Jem'Hadar Attack Ships and Nicor Bioships. And you would be surprised that it doesn't exceed the established 8k limit. I tend to run right around 6.5/6.6k in my Defiant when up against Undine. Against Borg, I lower my weapons power a little bit so I am not insta-vaping the Spheres/Probes. We…
  • Ditto in US-Mountains. Get to the Cryptic Screen then locks up and says it can't initialize On-Demand Patching or reach the log-in server. And I'm using Raptr to log in.
  • And this is one of the reasons I love the primary channel I am in. Star Trek Battles (topic is in Federation Gameplay Sub-Forum) is for those who want to run Canon loadouts and don't care about High DPS. We actually lower our DPS to give us a challenge and bring back the Team Work aspect the STF's originally had. And we…
  • Unless they do a MASSIVE revamp, this will never happen. Switching Game Engines from an established system to a new one is a logistical and development nightmare. Everything has to be redone. Artwork, game mechanics, modeling, animation, and probably a few others I am forgetting would all have to be recoded for the new…
  • Welcome to the Channel. Invite has been sent, as well as a Welcoming Email In-Game. Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
  • Actually, there is a way around this. Not sure where or how to code it, but it what if NMS was specific to a players machine? It would still require that you be online with STO, thereby giving other players a chance to explore worlds others have explored, but the main program of creating new worlds for the player to…
  • Comparing STF's to EXPLORATION missions isn't exactly right. The STF's state exactly what it is about. When I think Exploration, I want to discover new civilizations that require diplomacy to deal with, not shield generators, rations, or other commodities right off the bat. I also didn't believe that a space-faring race…
  • Exploration has been a joke since the start of this game. It was the same missions recycled over and over again. Honestly, I am glad they got rid of it. PvP was never my forte, and will never be. Mainly because I can't stand the childish behavior of a majority of PvP'ers when they either have to gloat or whine as much as…
  • Die Zombie thread. As I expect this thread to be closed soon, I'll answer the question. Depending on the mission you two are trying to run may be Single-Player only. Temporal Ambassador and the last 3 FE (Featured Episodes) have all been single player for the first run through. If it isn't, make sure both of you have the…
