Still Boldly Going

Its interesting to see that my last Star Trek Online post covered the controversy over the tier 6 ships.  Of course that's a fading memory now, with tier 6 the norm, and many of the key tier 5 ships subsequently replaced by new and improved tier 5 versions.  The panic over the intel ships did...

Tier 6 Ships

Yup, another Star Trek Online blog. A bit dull. I was going to do a Referendum one, but it ended up drafted and redrafted so much it eventually didn't seem worth it.  Maybe I'll work on a Doctor Who/Capaldi one instead. Anyway, Star Trek Online has announced it's second expansion with Delta Rising coming out... Continue Reading →

Marvel Heroes

I've been spending the last week or two playing the new, free to play MMO Marvel Heroes.  I'll not repeat my thoughts here, as I've got a fairly lengthy review posted on Outpost Skaro.  Check it out, and I hope you'll be convinced to check the game out (short version: I'm enjoying it, but  I...

Star Wars The Old Republic

Well, the NDA got lifted in time for this weekend's big stress test inviting on pretty much anyone who was interested in getting a beta code, so I can finally talk about how much I've been loving Star Wars The Old Republic. Being a huge fan of the previous Knights of the Old Republic games,... Continue Reading →

STO Goes Free 2 Play

Or, why I cancelled my Star Trek Online Subscription... My intention here is not to have some kind of "Wahhh!  Rage Quit!" post.  Indeed the opposite is very true.  I fully intend to keep playing the game and making purchases from the C-Store, as I still really enjoy playing Star Trek Online.  Neither is this...

Season 4: Crossfire

Better late than never, I thought I'd better maintain the tradition, and talk about the big season update that came out for Star Trek Online a month or so back: Crossfire.  Unlike a lot of other MMOs, this doesn't include new mission content, since Star Trek Online has its Featured Episodes to cover that.  Instead...

Star Trek Online – STFs

One aspect of the game which I finally completed the other week, and is also due for a revamp in the near future, are the three Borg STFs (Special Task Forces).  These form a large portion of the endgame content for players who make it to Rear and Vice Admiral, presenting a harder challenge than...

Cutting the Cord

With the Iconian involvement behind the Tal Shiar now revealed, Starfleet decides its time to deal with Hakeev before things get out of hand.  You're sent to the Tal Shiar base in the Brea system, and its not long before you're running around the Tal Shiar-controlled city, with Obisek and his Reman forces seeing their...

Mine Enemy

Things are hotting up in the Romulan Sector.  After events at the Vault, Starfleet assigns you to investigate one of the Remans' targets, a mining colony in the Hfihar system which came under the control of the Ferengi Madran after the destruction of Romulus.  With a mining colony seeming an unlikely target your orders are to...
