Rumors about the new T6 Allied Pilot Escorts have circulated for a while now, and it’s finally announced. Here is the official news.
About time the old Kumari gets a T6 upgrade!
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.
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 At this point most of what I wrote is outdated, but I just wanna show off the new guys!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.
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.
Son’a Dreadnought coming to another R&D promotion. Yes, this is the same extra-extra-extra-exclusive deal with the TOS Constitution and the butt-ugly Enterprise-J, both of which cost like a trillion-gajillion EC to buy from the Exchange. If you want this guy here, be prepared to shell out some cold, hard EC.
