Holodeck Release Notes: EC Exchange cap ‘adjusted’ to 750 Million, Neutronic Adjustments, new Admiralty XP cap

LaughingTrendy posted this yesterday for this morning’s patch: http://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/9693273 General: Winter Event: Adjusted the Winter recipe ingredient placements to be accessible again.

First Impressions: Hands on with the T6 Jupiter-Class Carrier – 3/5 stars

Updated: Ship trait is working as intended. I have wanted a true Starfleet carrier since the introduction of the Atrox. From the moment Star Trek Online decided to break it’s 4-year old unofficial moratorium on the Federation having a full carrier, the community as a whole waited with baited breath for the stats on this ship. The ‘Pantheon‘ design competition was a great way of involving … Continue reading First Impressions: Hands on with the T6 Jupiter-Class Carrier – 3/5 stars

First Impressions: Hands on with the T6 Faction Dreadnought Pack

This is a great example of a good pack:  each ship is unique and a significant improvement over previous versions.  For me the measure of a good ship is one that I’d play with, but a great ship is one I’d also buy the fleet variant without hesitation because it’s become my ‘new’ go-to ship. Every time I sat down to write this review, I ended up playing … Continue reading First Impressions: Hands on with the T6 Faction Dreadnought Pack

Rush to Judgment – Why the Jupiter-class isn’t DOA…. yet.

Prejudging a ship before we’ve had a chance to get our hands on it comes with a risk, especially when that ship involves an entirely new mechanic. I made assumptions about Pilots ships without knowing their actual value in-game. Fast forward to today, and the Icarus class Science-Pilot ship still outclasses just about everything that has come after it (I’m looking at you T6-Defiant). In … Continue reading Rush to Judgment – Why the Jupiter-class isn’t DOA…. yet.

New Dawn Launches – Congratulations to STO on a Smooth and Successful Launch!

I just wanted to pop on quickly tonight for a quick – spoiler free – recap of my first experience with Star Trek Online’s Season XI: A New Dawn.  Based on my experience, the launch was relatively glitch free, lag-free (for me), and my first battle with the RNG Gods was ultimately very successful.  They’re still tweaking a few elements here and there, but for … Continue reading New Dawn Launches – Congratulations to STO on a Smooth and Successful Launch!

Throughout the course of the conflict, Federation, Klingon, and Romulan researchers worked tirelessly to study and reverse-engineer captured Herald technology.
