Budget Build for Newbies

For every toon that has good gear and a lot of resources pumped into them, there are two who are barely developed. Lt. Adam Kunzel is one of my newest toons, and also one who has very little resources dedicated to him. His entire build is done on the cheap, but for what he is, Adam is not ineffectual. I thought I’d use him as a template and write a guide for new STO players, on one possible setup for an inexpensive endgame ship.

The Miracle Worker Cruisers

We are still in the midst of arranging for mom’s funeral, but as many people keep telling me, it’s just as important to get back to our daily lives. In that sense, STO has been very helpful; it’s something to keep my mind busy so that I don’t (unhealthily) overthink about real life.

The New Flight Deck Cruisers

State of the Union (September 2017)

Being waylaid for a couple of weeks doesn’t mean I haven’t been following news on STO. In fact, when you’re stuck in bed for the better part of two weeks, reading up on news online is pretty much the only reliable entertainment you get!

A few things were announced in the last couple of weeks… some of which are controversial and some are frankly troubling.
