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 →

Constellation Class

One of the final ships from the TV series has finally made it into Star Trek Online, as the Constellation class has been released. Best known for Captain Picard's first command, the USS Stargazer, the Constellation class has been a favourite since its début in season 1 of Next Generation, bringing ships with four warp...

Legacy of Romulus

The first ever expansion to Star Trek Online will be released this week, and I've been fortunate to play through some of it during the beta stages.  Introducing the Romulans as a third playable faction, the expansion gives us the backstory to the new Romulan Republic introduced during the New Romulus launch, as well as...

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...

So, going by the logic I mentioned previously, about balancing short and long missions, you might expect Coliseum to be a bit longer.  But you'd be wrong. Coliseum is a lot longer.  Its potentially the longest of the featured episodes to date, and enjoys an attention to detail that means its going to stick in... Continue Reading →
