Rumors about the new T6 Allied Pilot Escorts have circulated for a while now, and it’s finally announced. Here is the official news.
About time the old Kumari gets a T6 upgrade!
I finally finished the boring and frustrating Omega Event grind and got the Bajoran Interceptor for all my toons. While I have no intention of flying it, any ASS card is good and the console that comes with it looks pretty useful… especially on Phaser builds and I have 3 toons who can benefit from it. Anyway, I may talk about them another day, but today, something I idly wrote over lunch break…
Have you noticed STO has been wonky in the last couple of weeks? Every time you start the game or shut down the game, there is always a gigantic patch waiting which goes away after DLing maybe 10% of it? Well last night the REAL gigantic patch hit because it’s the 8th Anniversary Patch. Even with my broadband connection it took like 20 minutes to DL; I heard it took Fungi 4 hours.
But hey, it was worth it.
While it’s no shock that STO is going to take advantage of STD — Hey, that’s Star Trek Discovery for you! — to bolster the game’s new content, I’m a wee bit surprised that it took so little time for the STD ships to make their appearances. Three of them are coming to the game soon, with the Shenzou (Walker-class) as a lobi ship, and the Discovery (Crossfield-class) and Klingon Sacrophagus as lockbox ships.
For the 8th Anniversary of Star Trek Online, Cryptic announced a couple of things. There is currently a giveaway going on …and never say no to freebies… along with some activities we usually get for Anniversaries. Call me crazy, but whatever the nine new emotes are, those are the things that intrigue me the most.
Of course, it wouldn’t be an Anniversary without a new free ship. In this case, a Bajoran Interceptor.
S’right, there’s a lot of stuff being pushed out on STO lately: Re-Engineering! Re-generating the Infinity Lockbox! Feature Episode Replay! Sompek Returns! It sure is a lot of Re- being used and lots of shit being Re-cycled!
Do I sound excited by all of this through my liberal use of exclamation marks? Hell yeah! Because Exclamation marks are cheap and today my sarcastic bitchiness is just bursting at the seams!
This post is long overdue: I began drafting this in late November but never got around to finishing it, because we were in the midst of leveling these new toons. At this point most of what I wrote is outdated, but I just wanna show off the new guys!
I guess I should go and update the original post (for instance, all the new toons have progressed quite a bit since), but… I don’t wanna. Right now I am sort of in a maintenance mode on Star Trek Online, mainly just logging in to do daily refinements and little else. Frankly, there isn’t much going on — the Winter Event is more of a chore to me than an actual event, and the last time any new content is released was back in October. It’s been a bit of a drought on STO, but it’s giving me an opportunity to focus on something else for a change. Not necessarily a bad thing.
Now on to the original post.
