Cryptic published the stats of the upcoming Summer Event ship, the Vorgon Vtijara Dreadnaught cruiser. What can I say? It’s… different.

The Jem’Hadar Ships

Whew! That was a lot of Ship Mastery grinding over the weekend!

See, Cryptic decided to nerf the amount of Ship Mastery XP awarded in Red Alerts, so there is a lot more grinding needed to get Ship Traits. On top of that, the new Jemmie Vanguard ships come with a new feature, namely a level VI Mastery that allows that Ship Trait to become Account-Wide. This is not a bad feature, except the part about level VI requiring roughly the same amount of XP from level I to level V! Which means the amount of grinding just DOUBLED.

So, yeah. After a weekend of grinding, I still only got 3 of the 4 Jemmie Vanguard ships done. But after flown all four ships for a bit, I want to write a quick impression on those ships.

STD Lockbox. Use protection!

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.

Good and Evil Kitties

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 At this point most of what I wrote is outdated, but I just wanna show off the new guys!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.
