Lexicon?
 
Is there a Lexicon? I play STO (Star Trek Online) when it first started, but took a long break and came back recently.

I have been reading many "threads" and I can't understand some of it.

I know what DoFF, Boff, but what about all the other stuff like skills/equipment? (like skills are all in abbreviation)

I figure I can post on this thread to find out on what half of this stuff means. (please post stuff refer to STO abbreviation only :) )

Thanks

I presume STOWiki would have everything you need to know about weapon / gear modifiers and such?

they do, but what does THIS mean?

BOffs:
Lt Tac: TS1/TT1, BFAW2
Ensign Tac: TT1
Cmdr Engi: ET1, EPtW2, EPtS3, Aux2SIF3
LtCmdr Engi: EPtA1, RSP1, EPtW3
Lt Sci: HE1, TSS2

DOffs:
Conn Officer (TT CD red)x2
DCEx2
WCEx1

All I see is a bunch of letters. I am hoping there is a page explaining what does this mean.

Those are usually non-official abbreviations for Bridge Officer abilities and DOff specialisations used by forum members for brevity - there is no lexicon for those. That said, it's just a very simple matter of matching the initials to the lists on the Wiki:

TS1 = Torpedo Spread I

TT1 = Tactical Team I

BFAW2 = Beam Fire At Will II

ET1 = Engineering Team I

EPtW2 = Emergency Power to Weapons II

EPtS3 = Emergency Power to Shields III

Aux2SIF3 = Auxiliary to Structural III

EPtA1 = Emergency Power to Auxiliary I

RSP1 = Reverse Shield Polarity I

EPtW3 = Emergency Power to Weapons III

HE1 = Hazard Emitters I

TSS2 = Transfer Shield Strength II

Conn Officer (TT CD red)x2 = 2x Conn Officers with Tactical Team Cooldown reduced

DCEx2 = 2x Damage Control Engineers

WCEx1 = 1x Warp Core Engineer


Sounds like you're trying to duplicate somebody else's build without understanding it...

I am trying to "study" build, but there are a LOT out there. So I am trying to see patterns, maybe something that I can use. I get lost in the lingo and have no clue what I am reading.

That was one of many example builds I see on the forum. Many people start using abbreviation and some don't make sense to me.

Thanks for the clarification.

Sorry, tlamstrike, you've been ninja'd :P
