The new Personal Endeavor system has been out for several weeks now, which as expected, is essentially the same version they put on Tribble. Most of the endeavors aren’t particularly onerous, but a few can be a solid pain in the ass to complete. Overall though, it does succeed in its primary goal: getting players to do different activities that they normally wouldn’t touch. A lot of previously dead places are quite active now, and I attribute it all to the Personal Endeavor system.
Fungi brought this to my attention, and sure enough the forums are all over it. And yeah, it does make for some squinty-eye moments.
Sorry for the very sporadic posts, but things haven’t settled down for me at all. In addition to my unexpectedly poor post-op recovery, I am also dealing with mom’s failing health. As she has been admitted to palliative care, I am trying to see her as much as I can before she passes.
Anyway, today I want to quickly touch upon the recent release of Season 14: Emergence for Star Trek Online. Why am I still playing STO then? To distract myself. Actually I’ve been told that keeping busy and continuing doing the things we normally do help cope with stressful times. And yeah, this is about as stressful a time as I’ve ever been.
The procedure went okay, but the recovery has been slow. I’m still in some pain and discomfort, but at least I can get up from bed and walk around now. I’ll gradually work myself back into things, so this blog is (mostly/somewhat) open for business again.
This is not STO-related, but if you are a Star Trek fan and enjoys playing with Trek ships, you might be interested in a “Summer of Trek” sweepstake/giveaway sponsored by Eaglemoss and IDW.
Here is a news article from Figures.com. Just copied and pasted the whole thing down below.
Do you Americans out there have EB Games? Because that’s what we get here in Canada.
Don’t worry, this isn’t an ad. This is a short rant.
