re: Star Trek Online

So, I recently returned to STO as a diversion. I even figured out the STO equivalent of crafting which allows you to gain levels without actually leaving spacedock. But there is also big news some of you might be interested in.

In advance of a content update, STO is running a promotion for the next five weeks or so for new characters ("Delta Rising") as a way of adding new players and/or reassimilating old players. If you roll a new character and accomplish the tutorial, you get benefits for that character as well as for any existing STO characters you already had. Additionally, completing the story quests will unlock benefits for everyone on the server/shard/thing, as well as for your additional characters. So, it is a way of encouraging folks to play a new character (BTW there is also a free character slot) while not neglecting their old characters.

If you want to contact me there, my new character is T'Byr (Vulcan); my others are: Cygna (Federation, in Andeon's fleet), Vetka (Romulan), and Lyhe (Klingon) -- all @vetlur. None are beyond level-50, so no end-game.

And yes, they have added tributes to Leonard Nimoy, whose voiceovers still appear in-game.

re: Star Trek Online

Is there some sort of invitation that you can send to folks, to get credit for new recruits?

re: Star Trek Online

Oh, you mean if I recruit someone? I don't think so. I think it is just that everyone benefits from the new folks advancing, and my other characters benefit from my new character advancing.

Star Trek: SPV (Secret pie vault)

And now we know where the pie vault really is.

We're through the looking glass here, people.


:P

re: Star Trek Online

One of the three MMOs still installed on my computer. I stalled out around level 45-50 I think. Does anyone from LMB still play there much?

Also, I'm a little confused about what benefits and how to get them. Is there a link that describes it in more detail?

re: Star Trek Online

Ok, trying to get this thing set up. Do I need the ARC thing or is there a separate STO launcher?

re: Star Trek Online

I couldn't find any other way than through the arc thingy. Still trying to figure out if I am through the tutorial and when the MMO part starts. So far, I'm just trying to fly through space (emphasis on try haha) and find stuff to scan or kill, though I finally did get to a part where I get to beam down (no Scotty though sad ) and save people from Borgs. I can't find options for grouping with anyone else, just me and my trusty sidekick... what's her name.

hehe

re: Star Trek Online

If you picked up the temporal device thingy, then you finished the tutorial (I think). So far it is mostly solo content, but you can do group content too (like instances, where a bunch fight a Borg ship). If you're very new, I'd suggest following the solo quest chains to get a hang for all the controls/concepts. The tutorial is just a start (comparable to the LOTRO tutorial; you're clearly not ready for serious stuff at level-7 in Archet).

You will begin to see other players in the main hubs, like space dock.

re: Star Trek Online

OK, I'll try that ARC thingy.

They have hobbits as a race though right? Right?

*dream fade*

Captain Bilwise: "Hey! How come the pie maker doesn't work?!?"

Ensign: "You mean the replicator? All replicators are offline since we need the power for the shields. We're under attack by the Romulans. The ship is more important than pie, right captain?"


...



Ensign: "Captain?"

Captain Bilwise: "Hang on, I'm thinking ..."

*end dream fade*

re: Star Trek Online

ARC does not work for me and I've heard a LOT of complaints about it.

I play STO via Steam. :)

I downloaded via Steam as well - it was quite quick!

re: Star Trek Online

Hmm, pie-plicator ... engage!

I use the Steam version also.

FYI: the STO wiki has useful info (though sometimes incomplete on basics it seems), such as which quests are in which chains (this might be in-game somewhere, such as the Journal): http://sto.gamepedia.com/Episodes.
