First Impressions: Hands on with the T6 Connie – Temporal Light Cruiser 5/5

Update(s):  1. The builds I post used to contain some sort of disclaimer recommending you don’t take my builds seriously.  I’ll add that back.  My builds are for fun, and I strongly recommend you check out the builds advice on r/stobuilds for whatever you’re looking for😉 2. In the original text I said the Annorax was obtainable from the Infinity Box, which I’m now told it wasn’t. … Continue reading First Impressions: Hands on with the T6 Connie – Temporal Light Cruiser 5/5

Lootcritter 2,000,000 Dilithium Shirts – ’cause​ you asked.

Please do NOT REPOST ON REDDIT* After the emails and tweets, I’ve made a version of my Star Trek Las Vegas shirt available through Cafe Press.  The price is a ridiculous $34, but the flipside is that they handle everything – including returns.  I will ‘make’ $4 per shirt, which will go to cover giveaways at a later date.  Assuming we sell even one😉 Ironically … Continue reading Lootcritter 2,000,000 Dilithium Shirts – ’cause​ you asked.

This has to be a mistake… $50 for a character-bound costume?

Update: The dilithium store’s overpriced costume wear (already 9 times higher than anything else) got a small 15% discount when the changes were pushed live to holodeck this morning. Update 2: Well so much for that – the discount came from our dilithium min discount. Grrr.  Thanks to Ross (@khamseen_air) for pointing that out. [sarcasm] Yeah, NOW I’m going to buy something [/sarcasm]   If vanity items … Continue reading This has to be a mistake… $50 for a character-bound costume?

A Conversation with @LaughingTrendy – Insights on Her Role As Community Manager

Insight into the inner workings at Star Trek Online and by extension Cryptic isn’t something we don’t get to know about on a daily basis. Beyond the great podcasts with the executive producers and development team members we see (and listen) to prior to a release, the role of community manager is a bit of an assumption by many. I had the chance to get to … Continue reading A Conversation with @LaughingTrendy – Insights on Her Role As Community Manager

SirBoulevard is a prolific foundry author, co-leader of the E.W.O.C. fleet, he’s a guy who thinks he can build a canon build and DPS at the same time. We … Continue reading Guest Blogger Sir Boulevard: Agents of Yesterday Review

Guest Blogger Timberwolf: 26th Century Star Ships Review

Lootcritter here: Expansion Three may appear to be short on content, but with 12 new Zen ships, 3 lockbox ships and now a T6 Marauder, plus an entirely new set Temporal powers, reputation, and specialization – this has been a hell of a week.  One might say this expansion has altered the meta in-game substantially. Timberwolf is back with his take on the 26th-century ships that … Continue reading Guest Blogger Timberwolf: 26th Century Star Ships Review
