Guest Blogger Hera: The Photon and Proton Science Pilot Escort Build

Lootcritter here: Hera offered to provide a kinetic build example after a few conversations about her success with it.  I’ve had requests for build advice, and while i’m happy with what I can do, offering a look at how others reach their goals  gives me an opportunity to learn as well.   In the coming months I will be offering other builds specifically for new players getting into Star Trek … Continue reading Guest Blogger Hera: The Photon and Proton Science Pilot Escort Build

Guest Blogger: “Only Six Missions” – Faction Parity, Disgruntled Fans, Lost Direction, and Years of Built of Tension

Lootcritter here:  I have my own feelings about the amount of content poised for release with Agents of Yesterday.  As information drips slowly out for us to dissect, rearrange, speculate and then vivisect (yes, a dead horse reference) – the STO fandom in general is both confused and concerned, and for some super happy at the thought of a TOS expansion.   What I do … Continue reading Guest Blogger: “Only Six Missions” – Faction Parity, Disgruntled Fans, Lost Direction, and Years of Built of Tension

Guest Blogger Timberwolf: Wells Class Temporal Science Vessel Review

Lootcritter here: It’s been a hell of week, full of surprises. The announcement that Star Trek Online is coming to consoles took us all by surprise, generating as much hoopla as one would expect while leaving many of us with unanswered questions.   In the meantime, Timberwolf has branched out yet again with another review – this time with the Wells Class Temporal ship.  The Wells was my first experience in … Continue reading Guest Blogger Timberwolf: Wells Class Temporal Science Vessel Review

Guest Blogger sirboulevard – Dawning of the Age of Aquarius: How to Make Console Pets Better

Lootcritter here: My ship reviews are in progress and yes, the much-delayed Hestia review is forthcoming.  One of the drawbacks of the Hestia (it is a great ship) is that the pet mechanics are dreadful.  Unless you’re very lucky, the console pets in Star Trek Online are underwhelming. So while I’m neck-deep in the new Skills system over on Tribble, we have another guest editorial on the status of console pets by sirboulevard. … Continue reading Guest Blogger sirboulevard – Dawning of the Age of Aquarius: How to Make Console Pets Better

Guest Blogger Timberwolf: Federation Flagships Review

Lootcritter here: Nine new ships this week – NINE.  And after a weekend of pure fun, I’ve had a chance to set up all three factions and I can say there’s not a dog in the bunch. Timberwolf’s been salivating for a T6 Odyssey for as long as I’ve known him – so it’s no surprise the following review is a love-affair with this ship.  And I’m in complete agreement. … Continue reading Guest Blogger Timberwolf: Federation Flagships Review
