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

First Impressions: Hands on with the Vorgon Xyfius Heavy Escort 3.5/5 Stars

For most players the process to earn the ship takes little more than 5 minutes a day on Risa. It can be done with a rental jetpack, and from most reports is a simple process to learn. I’m not a fan of the flying game so I took advantage of the Lobi voucher route and finished the ship on day one. There isn’t an advantage … Continue reading First Impressions: Hands on with the Vorgon Xyfius Heavy Escort 3.5/5 Stars

Overdue Review: Hands on with the T6 Daemosh Na’Kuhl Science vessel 4/5 Stars

wRrrrr-wRrrrr-wRrrrr-ZRrrrr-wRrrrr-wRrrrr-wRrrrr-ZRrrrr Normally we don’t get player versions of an opponent ships until later in that season, or not until after the current story arc runs it’s course. Anecdotally it seems like we’re getting them sooner each season. The Na’Kuhl are a temporal adversary after all, so in theory at least they could have shown up at any time 😉 My first impressions with the Na’khul … Continue reading Overdue Review: Hands on with the T6 Daemosh Na’Kuhl Science vessel 4/5 Stars

Fair Warning: Event Ships Currency & Exclusivity Changes Inbound

With the Summer Risian Event just a few weeks away, and the Crystalline Entity almost complete – Star Trek Online has updated the currency options for major (ship) prizes.  The changes are not a nerf, but contain both a decent compromise and an unfortunate change.  Here’s a summary of the changes to the currencies that impact ship rewards: Event ship rewards are no longer ‘exclusive’.   Previously before … Continue reading Fair Warning: Event Ships Currency & Exclusivity Changes Inbound

Prelude to the Flagship Release: Thomas Marrone offers up a fictional insiders look at the Federations Flagship

During the great wasteland between TOS and TNG, fans turned to grey market productions of ship schematics and fandom supposition to feed our need for more Trek. Based in part on real world publications like Janes Defense Weekly- the defacto public source for military information in the 1980’s – some fan productions created entire mythologies and new ship classes around these publications.  Dreadnoughts, cruisers and even (gasp!) carriers skirted … Continue reading Prelude to the Flagship Release: Thomas Marrone offers up a fictional insiders look at the Federations Flagship
