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.
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.
As you probably all know already, Cryptic released a new line of “Miracle Worker” ships recently. There are some controversy over them and it’s time for Heidy to take a look at them.
My mom passed away peacefully in the hospice early this morning, at 5:30am PST. She lost her fight against cancer and I hope she is in a happier place now.
I know this isn’t the right place to talk about this, but I need to mourn in my own way.
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.
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!
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.
