Got any links to the info on said overhaul? I played the open beta and loved the space combat but hated every second of the very much forced ground combat... I'd be very interested in trying it again if the ground combat was fixed. Or has there been more improvements since beta?

Yes, they plan on replacing the current ugly ass space-dock with the Space-dock seen in the Movies/Series. Possibly in a PVP or PVE event. I'm on the STO forums every day. I play a couple times a week, I have a Lifetime sub. [editline]29th December 2010[/editline] This game is way better then it was at launch.
Sounds pretty good, but what I really want to see is in-ship missions, though. I mean, 90% of the show takes place on their ships, and I find it a bit odd that they haven't taken that into account in STO. Great to hear that they're actively improving it though, I'll have to give it another try.
Does a short period of subscription come with the Steam version of the game? The Digital Deluxe Edition is only 8,75€ and I was thinking of buying it.
[QUOTE=-Jansse-;27094240]Does a short period of subscription come with the Steam version of the game? The Digital Deluxe Edition is only 8,75€ and I was thinking of buying it.[/QUOTE] Yeah I think you get 30 days with the game.
I'll have to update mine, have a lifetime account, but the ground combat stopped me from continually playing it.
Thought it worthy to bump this thread because of new updates. Really like season 3 and its overhaul of the crafting system (I CAN ACTUALLY MAKE SHIT NOW!!!) I tried the foundry on the tribble test shard and it has some great potential to be the best MMO content creator. New utra items (Aegis/Borg) have been added which is cool as well.
Tell me if this gets better, I was hoping for a shooter and a space combat game mixed into one
yeah I remember enjoying the beta a bit, wouldn't hesitate playing this if they implemented the procedural missions or some other cool features

Oh god... Might have to get back into the game, if they really make all the update the game is going to be a lot better since when I last played it (Release)
nonplayers have no idea what half that stuff will do- anyone willing to translate?

-snip double post-
Found 2 old codes for a pet shuttle, Got these at release no idea if they still work. Going to post all 4 because I personally used 2 but no idea which ones.. SRUK5-EAXPC-HDLT4-KFUKC-QYC3V SRUK5-C7QBD-T7L4D-AGHE9-GMTHA SRUK5-AUM8V-JDUBW-EUQPN-7ANEY SRUK5-49J64-BXTU8-X7XNN-DFKY6 They were from pre-ordering from gamestation. No idea if they're obtainable ingame or only via these (not played since first month).
If you guys are on the tribble test server they released a new version of the First post-Tutorial mission "Stranded in Space" they added some cutscenes, new dialogue and changed the maps. You can access it from the Mission replay terminal from your ready room on your ships bridge, or make a new character... but thats the long way. It also scales with your characters level.

[QUOTE=Pinut;27584502]How much exactly? Last I read was that they were adding daily borg missions that had better equipment rewards[/QUOTE] Well a lot... Daily Borg missions? Don't remember anything like that. They have added 2 new missions series 5 missions each, a third one starting February 5th. Klingon PvE missions. new ships, higher level Cap. I dunno, IMO its improved a whole hell of a lot since last year. I would have cancelled my sub the second month in if I was paying monthly, but I had a lifetime so I just kept playing once and a while. I play a lot more now then I did then. Crafting has improved a a lot. There is a mission maker on Tribble test server right now, should be on the Live server by sometime in March.

They updated Spacedock more. I'm assuming they're releasing the new exterior model next week at the one year anniversary.

I'd buy this game if they ever released the Borg as a playable class. I'd love to be in command of a Cube, destroying and assimilating every Federation and Klingon vessel that flies by! :devil:
Is it even worth going back into this game? I played it through beta and mildly enjoyed it even though it was a massive grindfest with quests where you go to point A and kill, kill and kill. Not exactly in the Star trek spirit to be honest to boldly go and kill. On release STO was just a huge dissapointment. Heard it's changed a lot now in that year, groundcombat hugely improved, autofire is back, weekly episodes etc and just wondered if it was worth checking out again?
I see it's a lot cheaper now, just wanted to know.. Is it possible to buy subs through steam's payment methods just like the game itself?
