Yeah. I've got a a couple of mild OCDs. One is for point of detail, which is why I like your Guide so much. The other is a tendency to Collect Things. Poof - Instant Completist. One of Each For Me, ya know? At least on some things. I've managed to focus myself to virtual collections (saves money, heh compared to say when I used to collect Comics, Action Figures, and other useless brik-a-brak. ). So in STO, it turns out I've got a hankerin' for the Uniforms. I can't tell ya how happy I am that they made the Costume mod affect one's full account. Cuz I can has the other colors (Sci/Eng) on my alternates (who are in other Professions, naturally), and that satisfies my craziness. I still need to get that Alternate Gray TNG and I think a couple others, but I'm pacing myself. >Insert Mad Hatter Crazy Laugh< Ahem.

Anywho...

Yes, thems the Lemmings to which I so lovingly refer. I know the real life rodent charges in packs to suicide (or was that a myth >shrug< ), but there used to be a game a couple decades ago called Lemmings and the little pixeled dudes would just blindly walk back-n-forth. The first time I watched one of my Space-Filling-Crew walk mindlessly to and fo across a corridor, I immediately thought Lemmings! So cool, A-02. That might be what I have for them already. Next time I'm at the tailor I'll make sure. Thank you!

Ah, ok, so it wasn't just me. Thanks for explaining. Yeah, hopefully, "someday" they'll fix it. In fact, someone opened a thread about it earlier today.

Drat. They do that on purpose ya know? Hmm... I guess I'll have to buy a couple more slots when I hit 200.

Thanks. Sweet! Don't rush. Enjoy the skill points while ya still gets 'em! I'll be waiting patiently. The nice thing is, the VA1 promotion comes with 1 uniform slot, so your new jacket can go there.

Right on! That's what I'd hope you'd say! How much ya wanna bet, we pay to unlock these unis and they won't come with a costume slot, you'll have to buy that separately.

Now I haven't seen it, but I understand that as Ambassador in the FDC we unlock a new uniform. Is that true, do you know?
