    Hmm, it's still asking me to chose a sub option even though it accepted the code.
    That page lets you download the client.

    Playing it now. Played it back in beta, and the sense of scale still seems pretty off.

    Its an camera engine issue which apparently would be a very big Pain to Fix since its very deep base code in their engine.

    The areas need to be big so the Camera can fit.

    The TOS Constitution Interior is good though, its one of the smallest, and they've made a 'canon' Defiant class interior which should be coming out in the coming months.

    Too bad the engine doesn't support 3d skyboxes. It's very glaring starting right off the bat with those ships outside the window.

    Klingon content any good now? was pretty bad at launch.

    I still have my unused retail code but am gonna give the alienware offer a go to see if I can get back into it and maybe try a different ship class (was escort before).

    haha neat, was able to use the code on my original account because I only ever added the headstart code.

    Klingons have gotten some stuff but really it's still pretty bad, thats why when it goes f2p they're making all Klingons start at lvl 21 so the content gap doesn't seem as large.

    I've been enjoying the Heavy Cruisers, having 4 phaser banks firing at once with 2 Quantum torpedos firing with emergency power to shields beats anything PVE can throw at you.

    I really like some of the non-combat quests like the medical one, or the power rerouting.

    Just picked up a sub again, and man am I out of the ballgame. I could use a refreshing course on the basics (as in game mechanics and the new ground combat, not how to move/fire/use menus), but it's hard finding a comprehensive guide about it. Suggestions, anyone?

    You get them for free in the C-store, or the NX at least.

    Somewhere Nov-Decemebr I think.
    And yes, Cashshop is a given. Character slots, respecs, ships etc. are all being sold in the store.

    Anyone got some techniques to quick levelling? I don't mind team missions at all, but doing 20 solo quests in an MMO does get tedious. Especially if the time VS reward is... rather low.

    Yea, play with other people.

    Speakin of which we need an FP fleet.

    When it goes F2P, is anything more gonna be for cash, or is it staying the way it is.

    Ignore Patrol missions, they're boring, take forever and only give 1/4 of the skill points that a Story mission would give you.

    Talk around Earth Spacedock is that F2P accounts will only get around 25% of game content and have severe restrictions.

    I believe there's a list of all the differences between F2P users and subscribers on Cryptic's site for the game.

    I am perfectly aware what a wolf pack is, you can't really do that here.

    We aren't submarines.

    Well I guess ships with cloaking devices would be pretty equivalent to a submarine.

    I wish ships had less weapon banks (Torpedos excluded as they get seperate slot(s)), fired less often and did more damage. I feel like I'm hurling dozens of tiny "needles" when firing, instead of the damaging "spears" like in the show.
