Still cant decide on who my Romulan should join...Feds or Klings. I logged in my Klingon on Qo'nos and was totally lost lol. I logged right back out and decided to save hi ma while. Ive been playing the hell out of my Fed captain and am an admirable now so Ive done a lot and learned a lot. I want to play an alt now at times so as not to burn out on my Fed one. Since I know Fed so well now would taking my Romulan to the Klingons be the best so it will be more different?

Love the Fed side. Great ships and great missions.

Really liking the Romulan side with missions but the green color sucks as its hard to see my ship sometimes and the power settings are impossibly to tell which setting they are on,

But my Klingon is flat out dying. Im lvl 22 and still in a BoP. I haven't noticed a ship upgrade waiting on him and in his story missions there a big ass Valdore class kicking my ass over and over and over. I cant progress.

Your Klingon captain is missing something then. Every 10 levels you should get a mission to level up, which you can ignore, sort of. I used to like doing the Fed promotion missions in Earth Spacedock where the guy at the podium would announce your new rank. I don't think those exist anymore.

Regardless you have to go back to Kronos or Earth and get yo'self a new ship from the spacedock dude. It's kind of a pain in the ass to figure out which ships you are eligible for, just go to the ship vendor and filter everything out except ships for your captain's level. Eventually you'll see the ones you can buy with a "ship token".

Kronos is annoying, but that dude is there somewhere. Kapla!

My Romulan only got the choice of 1 ship at free ship upgrade time. My fed gets to choose from 3.

Strangest thing. On my Klingon ship my first officer is dressed in a plain shirt and pants and is pregnant.

Ok my Klingon is now lvl 26 and they are offering me 3 new ships to choose from. Tier 2 ships. Trouble is last time I lvl'd they gave me a tier 3 ship..a K'Tinga battlecruiser. Why would it do that?

Ive returned to STO. Man LOTS of changes and new stuff. Just got back in yesterday and still trying to sort stuff out . Not even playing yet. One of my noob ships was way out in bumbleF so I hit up SOL. Soon as I get there got a fleet invite and joined up. The guy who invited me was in a Enterprise J ship. Its the Feds flag ship. B eau tiful ship. I want one. Someday I hope.

In the pic Im the little Constitution refit near its port nacelle under the usually huge 4 engine cruiser above me. The pic doesn't do it justice with the size and brightness of the engines and such.

Re: Star Trek Online

Ive been back about 2 weeks I guess. I have only played my low lvl human since returning. Had a bit of strangeness to it all. He was lvl 20 or so when I got back to him and in a cruiser of some sort. I got an Akira and started doing missions and lvl'n. But at lvl 32 and a Galaxy class ship he ran out of missions entirely. I have a higher Klingon and Rom and they both still have missions in the home area. But this guy has had to go to the Bajoran area to pick of random quests at lower lvl. I dont get it. I mean he is OUT of quests. None pending, none when I hail fleet..all done or not available.

Anyways this post is about my poor Klingon. Since I came back he has sat at ship purchase. He had a chit to get a free ship and I CANNOT make a choice between a Vorcha Refit (Im in a normal Vorcha now) ..and a Negh-Var. The only diff I see is the NV has a few more hull points and turns 1 slower. Yet online I see people say Vorcha Refit cause it turns faster. But why advance if you dont get a cooler bigger ship? Im stuck and cant decide lol.

That Negh'Var looks pretty darn cool.

I keep bouncing off of STO. I need to get a chance to really play it at some point.

This is one that should have been something I played a lot, but instead I never got around to installing it.

My only worry with the Negh-Var is a slow turn. My Fed Galaxy turns slow but it does turn. My Rom D'Deridex will not $^$%& turn. Its SO slow that I can not get an enemy back in my forward sights once they move out of it and they stay on my ass . I actually had to get my guild to come help me last year....or earlier this year. I want the NV I just hope it turns...guess Ill get it and see huh. I love the Vorcha...one of my fav Klingon ships..I actually own the toy model of it with lights and sounds lol....but its not a big ship compared to others in game...which may be an advantage in itself.

Don't give up on your Fed guy. He has plenty of missions left. Sometimes the story missions don't hail you, you have to begin them on your own. Open the Hail Starfleet window and choose Episodes. It will show you where you are in all the story campaigns and you can pick up wherever you were at.

You might want to restart now though as a Temporal Agent. Doesn't really change anything except for adding some character and account-wide perks for finding weird stuff on the regular episode arcs (time-related junk you have to scan and figure out some puzzles for, more or less.)

Start this guy AS a temporal agent from the past when I first made him when that all came out. I did use the hail...done it all or its all greyed out ...except the Nimbus one and Im not doing that again in my lifetime :P

Yeah I powered through them with my new TAgent guy a month or two ago. I hate that season. It's less annoying now somehow, though. I remember vowing the same thing when I did them the first time. Plus you end up with Law, who is a legendary DOFF.

The other mission I hate with the fire of 1000 overloading phasers is the one where you have fly through the giant "abandoned" Romulan space station in your shuttlecraft. Let's add all the shuttlecraft missions to that.

I was thinking of installing this again. Are you guys in a fleet or anything? From what I remember, playing alone is good, but not great. Then again, I haven't played in a good long while.

I earned a floor mounted trophy with my Romulan but for the life of me I cant find where they are. They are always in the eating area or crew lounge of the ships. Ive used the one in the Federation and Klingon ships. The mission reward even said its there and I looked up the name. But in my Rom ship...a Ha'Apax ....I cannot find where that is at all. I see no display areas and Ive been all over the entire ship. Going to make the rounds once more to see if I missed it.

Do all ships have a display area for trophy?

If I ever earned a trophy like that I have no memory of that event. I only retreat to my ship to get away from creeps. :D

As for Sectoid's q, one of my dudes is in a fleet. The advantage I noticed the most is that you can earn Fleet credits (and Fleet marks) and buy Fleet versions of a lot of high-tier ships. So if you are cool with grinding multiplayer you can get expensive ships that way instead of spending Zen ($, or turning super grindy dilithium -> Zen).

1. Found out Romulan ships have no trophy displays...at all.

2. Can someone suggest what marks to take as rewards from temporal reward boxes? I have a lot taking up room. They dont require a key to open but I have to choose which type of mark I want and I have no idea what to take. Os there a type better than others or more useful? Im not sure which to take or what to do with them once I get them.

Annoying display settings. If I set it to my native 2560x1080 fullscreen then I cant click anything on screen in game with my mouse. Nothing highlights. Its as if the cursor and the location of the pointer are two different areas. So Im forced to run max windows 17xx X xxxxsomething.

Well the Romulan story in STO is broken for me. Ive made 4 romulan character and each one gets stuck at the first promotion. It all works fine until Im supposed to fly to New Romulus and get a new ship and such. I fly there and cant do anything. Usually when you enter a system a box pops up so you can do whatever you need there. But nothing pops up for me. Ive flown into it from different directions. Ive ran into the planet many times. Ive flown around it. Nothing. Its broken right there. I have a very old romulan character that this didn't happen to and is way past this part. but the new 4 I made all end up stuck here. Ive deleted 3 after playing them this far. Other players tried to help but nothing worked.

EDIT: Looking online it is a common bug . Ill have to come back to it later and try to survive in my newb ship for now.

Ran a mission with Seven of Nine. They made her look like her. So cool. :) Fun mission. She had lots of humor and snarkiness to her lines. The space battle part kicked my ass at least 16 times. My poor Galaxy Class. I was rewarded with her pair of rifle to dual wield so that was cool.
