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…
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 At this point most of what I wrote is outdated, but I just wanna show off the new guys!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.
After the tiresome grind of Mirror Invasion, Fungi and I took time out to goof around with STO’s Alien Tailor options. And we ended up with the Dirties ™! No that’s not their official names or anything, I just thought to name them SOMETHING for ease of reference.
“Sir! We’ve lost aft shields! We have hull breaches in section 10 thru 12 on decks 4, 5 and 6. Emergency structural force fields are up but I don’t know how long they’ll hold!”
Lt. Adam Kunzel didn’t even have time to acknowledge the report as an explosion made the ship lurch violently to the side. He barely managed to hang on to the captain’s chair, but both his navigator and comms officer were thrown off their seats.
“Fire aft torpedoes full spread!” He barked to his tactical officer, who was thankfully clinging to his console, then turned to his helmsman. “Then make a hard bank to port, see if we can shake them loose.”
“Aye sir.” Ensign Collins called back. Ensign Shyant only nodded a silent acknowledgement without taking her eyes off her console — Adam privately hoped that the young Andorian helmsman’s fancy flying could take them out of the mess.
And indeed, what a mess it was.
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.
