I remember this game. I didn't enjoy it much but it did have some of the best damn space combat I've ever played in an mmo (outside of EvE of course). I wish TOR managed to capture the space in STO. I might try it out when it goes F2P.

Woo Top Gun :D
Had to 'buzz' DS9's 'tower' after beating a specific mission.
Star Trek Online added these as a Homage and Tribute to TOR
I'm up for an FP fleet too.
The problem with making a fleet is that five of us have to be in the same party at the same time to make it. I'll go ahead and update the (now goddamned ancient) OP to show current information about the events and prospective fleet.
Cryptic name: Jarmne
STO is adding DX11 support soon, it just appeared on the Test Server

I'll make some Before and after shots if there is a noticeable difference.
I load up on every single damage and shield buff I have, lock on a tractor beam and a tetryon beam, put full power into the forward shields, and launch all weapons. The Romulan loses 20% of his hull strength and most of one shield.
The Romulan launches one salvo of plasma torpedoes. It demolishes my shields and I'm dead in an instant.
Just in case you're wondering, I am playing on-level.

If I were you guys I'd hold off on making the guild until it goes F2P, then you can start fresh with WAY more members.
I was thinking the same thing, but the sooner we make it, the better. It would be much easier to tell a bunch of new people to just hit "join fleet" than ask a group over to a party to make the fleet.
Alright, makes sense. God, I can't wait... I've played the trial twice, and I love space MMOs, this'll be the first decent free one.
Going to be good when this goes free to play. Really want to continue with my Cruisers.
Got the deluxe edition exactly a year ago on steam sale. Waiting for it to go F2P again so i can continue my level 41 cruiser captain thing.(trying to get 1 month right now so i can start already).
Holy shit has the game gotten alot better after the year long break. ground combat is acctualy enjoyable now and the game runs better than before. Looks better too.
Cruisers still turn like pregnant turtles.
This F2P business is cool and all. But those terrible grab bags are getting on my nerves. You pay real money for a [I]very small chance[/I] to get the items you desire, and the rest is total garbage. CO has this as well, and people on the test server found out how incredibly low the chances of getting anything worthwhile out of them. On average, you had to pay over a dozen times more than usual just to get a single worthwhile item. To stop community members from finding further information about the drop rates, they've actually completely removed the C-Store on the test server shortly after that.
Now they're expanding it onto costumes as well. Previously we had Costume packs which, for a small sum of points, guaranteed the full set of whatever you were buying (as it should be). Now you have to buy these grab bags to get your set, which usually consists of more than 10 pieces. Meaning that to get everything you need for your character, you're probably gonna have to fork over [B]a lot[/B] more points to get it. And this is barring duplicates and unlucky streaks.
Interesting news for anyone who has subscribed before but isn't Subbed now
That's great, really looking forward to playing again.

I wonder if they pick that date on purpose.
Like they did in that post 17-01, as a reference to the registry of the USS Enterprise.
Wow, I didn't catch that. It's actually pretty awesome.
Sweet, looks like I'll be playing later on then.
I just realized something going over the F2P changes. You dont get extra bridge officer space when you rank up in F2P meaning at higher levels F2P pepole get compeltly fucked.
The lack of a true endgame has basically turned my sessions in STO to wandering around while assigning Doffs to whatever jobs I can find.
Really? No end game? Hm that doesn't sound too good.
Haven't played this since my initial month, looking forward to trying it out again. As I recall, my Andorian Captain was quite awesome looking

Yeah. Unfortunately, the endgame is pretty much sitting around and waiting for the next season to be released.

I like the changes they've made, except for the fact that everything is harder to get for f2p players.

In what way?
Me in Star Trek Online.
That Romulan Temple fleet action is the worst fleet action in existence, how could Cryptic make a map that takes at least 3 hours to finish and give out the same reward as doing a normal 20 minute mission...
Also, can't believe they've blocked silver players from playing any Community Authored maps, I was under the assumption that we were just blocked from making them.

As of typing this, theres a Crystalline entity fleet action that's been running for 9 hours 46 mins... and that's not the longest one I've seen, but I do agree the Rom temple one is a joke though.

What? you should be able to play them. According to the F2P features chart you can play them, either its a bug or you're doing something wrong.
You've gone to the mission journal and selected the "Community Authored" tab right?
