So my Galaxy X will be getting both a cloak console and a phaser lance console? ... or are we gonna lose a weapon slot if we use that lance? (unlike now)

Lots of great stuff here.


But can I train my BOffs at the power store?

What about respecs salami?
How will we obtain respecs in the future after we used up our free ones? Since they currently cost "merits" on holodeck.
+1

Any ingame means of respec available now? I find it quite disturbing that all announcements regarding merits seem to miss this VERY important aspect of that currency system.

And what about Ship and Boff names? Can't we have a more comprehensive list as to what happens to every customization option under merits/honour?

I honestly haven't played much STO since shooter mode went live, so when I decided to pop in on Tribble and maybe score a few testing rewards, I was absolutely living the new tutorial for the first time. It took me ages to get someone who could tell me how to get OUT of shooter mode so that I could do things..

like scroll the scrollbar on the help popup
or "talk to" the Chief Engineer

I am soooo glad that this has been switched back to RPG mode for starters.. but eventually the tutorial is going to need to cover how to switch in and out of that mode. Maybe you need to put Quinto on speed dial for more lines.

I think they said that some of the powers would be made into consoles. I'm.. not sure if the cloak would count. The KDF players would rightly scream bloody murder if that happened. The phaser lance might be put into a weapons slot, but... then again maybe not? That's something I can see not being consolized. (I have difficulty seeing the cloak being put into a console, too, but odder things have happened.) Hard to tell, future is cloudy, ask again later. But some good questions.

I am pretty sure they are getting an extra console slot, not consoles. Built in powers were originally done with a lost slot as compensation. I would imagine cruisers will get one additional Eng slot, Escorts and additional Tac slot, and Sci an additional Sci slot. The powers will likely be on universal consoles with a Cruiser/Escort/Science ship only restriction, based on what type of ship it came with.

So Exploration dailies reward refined dilithium, but pvp dailies reward dilithium ore?

Why?

I could see the Dreadnought not being touched given it's unique status, or perhaps making the lance a device and the cloak a console, both of which would be Dreadnought only so that those players have more customization options with the ship? Or making the Lance a weapon slot unique item with Dreadnought restriction...

Thank the Private PvP Queue is my guess. A lot easier to get Dilithium via PvP dailies where you can just start a match and trade off throwing the match with the other player. Whereas Exploration it's 3 missions no matter what, even if you only did non-combat missions you'd have to waste time searching for those or be insanely lucky to get three in a row.

The task for the The Odyssey Class ship as a reward has been a couple of different things. But the gist is that it would be a reward for a series of non-tirivla missions or events. The gist is that the Odyssey Class would be available to all player in game. And I assume it will be the same for the eventual Klingon Flagship, as well.

I'm 80% looking forward to the VA retrofit console change. Interested to see the restrictions, though. I shudder to think what kind of reaction the KDF community would have to a an MVAM with a cloak.
