Overflow Bag Clarification – Star Trek Online PC Patch notes for 2/2/17

Yikes – it’s been a while since I last posted.  Way too much on the go IRL, and little if any time leftover for my second-favourite endgame activity – nattering on about the good, the bad, and the ugly in Star Trek Online.  Tonight, it’s a little more on the good news side after the bug-plagued launch of the Tzenkethi Battlezone. To be clear – I love … Continue reading Overflow Bag Clarification – Star Trek Online PC Patch notes for 2/2/17

Release/Patch notes for Agents Of Yesterday

Well, it’s finally here and like many long-time fans of Star Trek Online, I’m stuck with deciding where my efforts go first.  On top of what we already know – two additional cross-faction episodes have been added at this point of the release.

Release Notes: May 5th 2016 – R&D Mod Unintended Bait & Switch fixed, and Dilithium Vouchers!

Two nice point in this weeks update which also HAS NO MENTION OF THE SPECIAL-SUPER-SECRET NEWS due tomorrow. Crafting Item Modifiers For at least since the last R&D Weekend, players have noticed that the randomly generated modifiers that you see in the results windows do not reflect the item you get.  For some reason there was a ‘rerolling’ of the modifiers when you actually receive … Continue reading Release Notes: May 5th 2016 – R&D Mod Unintended Bait & Switch fixed, and Dilithium Vouchers!

6th Anniversary Main Giveaway – T6 Krenim Science Ship Stats

Posted this morning on the Star Trek Online Blog: the Krenim Science Ship Lootcritter:  My initial impression is WOW.  For a free* ship this looks like a lot of fun.  All the benefits of a science ship (sensor analysis, subsystem targeting, shield bonus), and enough flexibility for a variety of builds with decent tactical capability. But of course, I’m heavily biased towards any science ship;) … Continue reading 6th Anniversary Main Giveaway – T6 Krenim Science Ship Stats

Odenknight’s Gonna Be Happy, Valiant Battle Cloak – Tribble Update for 1/20/2016

http://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/startrekonline/#/discussion/1210527/tribble-maintenance-and-release-notes-january-20-2016 Coldsnapped posted the Tribble notes on the main forums.  While no major hints about the upcoming Anniversary Event (Yay! Omega Particles), or the new flagships, there was a welcomed reference to the recent Valiant set, where having the quad cannons included upgrades your fedcloak to Battle Cloak.   Details to follow.  Frankly I still think that an integral cloak would have been the right thing to do, but … Continue reading Odenknight’s Gonna Be Happy, Valiant Battle Cloak – Tribble Update for 1/20/2016
