As part of the TNG 30th Anniversary celebration, STO is giving out the Type-7 Shuttle…. and the Skant uniform as gifts. Be sure to grab them now!
Have I mentioned I am a fan of speculative history and speculative evolution? No? Well, I am! This is the sort of thing I read for fun. Today I’m going to stretch my imagination a bit and come up with background information on an original alien species, the Cheuk. I even created an alien character on Star Trek Online, Z’mi Zahl, as a representative of the Cheuk.
Leveling in Champions can be such a slog; it takes a LOT of punching bad guys to get enough XP for a level. No it doesn’t quite take 2.5 years to get a toon to level 25, but it can be so frustrating that you stop playing for 2.5 years and hence not leveling a toon.
Such is the fate of one of my original Champions toons, Fire-Ant. But hey, he made it to that monumental milestone last night!
Wow, seriously, my one and only post about Champions Online was done back in January 2015 — over 2.5 years ago! That’s a little bit crazy.
Star Trek Online seems to be hitting a slow/low spot lately; other than the Martok episode there hasn’t been a lot of notable new content. Instead they’re recycling stuff like Arena of Sompek with a bad twist: the original Sompek was 3-runs-over-the-weekend for an account-wide reward, but now they turned it into a 14-day, per character slog for a lousy gun. So…. 14 runs per toon, Koyabashi-style queue, ground STF, for a ground weapon.
Yeeeeeaaaaah…. no, thanks. I’m not doing that. Did they actually think any player would enjoy that change? Because if they did, boy do I have some bargain waterfront property for sale in the Gobi desert!
It’s somewhat timely then that a friend wanted to try out Champions again, and invited me along… I thought what the hell. Champions only gives you two free character slots (both of which I have previously used); I am El Cheapo and don’t want to spend actual money to buy more slots, I went ahead and deleted level 18 Flashfreeze to make room. And now I have a new Champion toon: Ghosteye!
P.S. Why can’t I use my Zen from STO on Champions? I wish I could. I have a nice little stash on STO that can really help on this game, but now I’m stuck with no money.
I have mentioned my Bajoran toon Kala Kendris a few times in the past, although I have tweaked her appearance and backstory quite a bit since then (she is no longer a Wonder Woman surrogate). She is a Federation Engineer (the original intend was to round out my main Fed toons: Heidy is a Sci, T’Leia a Tac, and Kala is the Eng), but has been overshadowed a bit by Admiral Brown. That said she is at the endgame point even though her build isn’t completely optimized, and she is lacking some crucial pieces of gear and traits etc.
