    Started to play this again.
    Played in the beta, and got a lifetime subscription, never touched it again for a while.
    It's changed so much, my new character is already commander 22 after only a couple days.

    My 2 friends made me go science though since they are tactical and engineer.

    Went from Captain level 30 to 38 just today, my god, the Mirror Universe PVE's are XP goldmines, and the quests are also great, at this rate, I'll have my Star Cruiser tommorow.

    Yup, it's pretty easy to level and I can get the old STO difficulty by going on advanced.

    I wish I was frivolous enough to get a Lifetime subscription, but it costs more than the machine I play it on.

    Do not.
    Gold membership/lifetime is not worth it at all.
    The only good thing I get out of it is the 5% xp boost, and that is from being a 700 day veteran.

    yes, MACO shield is the best in the game with the right setup.

    And the full set's Heavy Graviton Beam will disable nanite generators and probes

    Figured a strategy for leveling up once a day, with limited playtime each day:
    Duty officers
    Foundry Dailies
    Story mission

    I can easily level once a day with this.

    Personally I'm not even trying to get to the highest level, goes pretty fast even if you only do duty officer missions.

    With a mission sometimes when I feel like doing one, or grouped pve missions, those are a lot of fun as well once in a while.

    Okay, so I'm doing the tutorial and I'm at the part where you beam down and rescue colonists from the borg. I'm running around blasting groups of them and then all of a sudden my weapons aren't working. It's not any kind of debuff or lockdown or anything, all the commands are still on the bar, I've tried clicking and using the corresponding keys, but for some reason I cannot fire my weapons, the rifle of the phaser.

    Has this happened to anyone else? It was just random and sudden.

    it keeps fucking people over in PvP, bloody annoying when it happens to you or a teammate, but yeah, it's a known bug, been around for a little while, hopefully gets fixed

    You could try hitting alt + 1, then see if it works after that. If that doesn't work, try re-log.

    Anyone got any tip on how to train a bridge officer ability that you can only be trained from an another boff? For example torpedo: Spread III, i've bought like 20 uncommon ones but none trains it.

    I'm torn on whether to get a Galaxy or Intrepid Class for Captain rank. Leaning towards Intrepid because I'm a Science officer but I really like the tanking ability of Cruisers. Reccomendations?

    If you don't mind C-Points, you can weigh the retrofits. The Galaxy retrofit allows saucer section separation, whereas the Intrepid retrofit has Ablative Armor generators (like in the last episode of Voyager) (also, the Defiant retrofit has a cloak). If you want one of those for Rear Admiral, go for the other at Captain.

    I'm an Engineering officer and I've been eyeing up the Intrepid. Apparently it is good for engineers, and I've never really liked the look of the Galaxy class myself.

    I just got my Heavy Cruiser last night too: the USS Lucid Nonsense; preceded by the USS Halation Effect, preceded by the USS Ethics Gradient.

    I usually name my ships after classic literary characters, eg. the USS Lestrade and the USS Moriarti.

    Tempting with my stipend, but not enough missions use shuttles, and once you reach the endgame all ships that aren't of the tier are basically useless.

    I name mine either from the list of Culture ship names, or after TVtropes pages.



    Can someone explain to me the purpose of those small craft? What are they used for exactly?

    barely anything

    the mission "The Vault" is the only use for them right now, but the next FE is a shuttle mission.

    There was a shuttle daily that let you craft the delta flyer, but when the game went f2p it was removed I believe.

    Probably a behind the scenes thing

    Edited:

    the STO servers are so slow that the game isn't even patching for me, it got the 54% and stopped, restarting doesn't work.

    He played a human character in an episode of Deep Space Nine (actually playing Worf in human form as part of a vision from the Prophets) and played Worf's grandfather, Colonel Worf, in Star Trek VI (my favorite Star Trek movie).

    Yeah, but that is the Observation Lounge on the Enterprise behind him, now that I look at it more, it was without the green screen effects.
