Don't get me wrong, I love the Fleet Marks all the time and the ability to downgrade our DOFFs, just wondering if the Downgrade is going to be like many of the other DOFF things and provide an unusually high number of Civilian DOFFs that are all but worthless in the Starbase projects.
Still waiting on that character Re-Trait option, what is taking so long? Seems like an easy enough thing to add... and you guys can make money off of it... so come on already... it has only been promised like 15 times by devs over a gazillion years.
That's probably just it though: the Re-Trait option isn't as easy as you think, considering it's absence from discussions.
That... or it's simply a very non-priority thing, so unless they get spare programming time (about as much change as getting a lockbox ship), it's not likely to be done anytime soon.
I don't believe that for a second. If they couldn't do it, they wouldn't promise it 50 billion times.
But trek21 o.O seriously why is every post you make a defensive post for Cryptic? You are becoming their personal excuse for everything.
That is a question you and most everyone else on these forums have been asking themselves, or even directly to me. Many remain mystified
The short answer is rather long, so bear with me:
I've been with STO since Open Beta, therefore I have seen everything Cryptic has done, ALL OF IT. I have seen their business decisions, many of their comments, seen their interviews on STOked and all their collections of ST memorabilia (did i spell that right?), and so on and so forth.
My opinion of all that, is that the Cryptic devs themselves, are good people, doing what they can with a business and with the ST IP in an MMO format. Therefore, I am with Cryptic, knowing full well there are good intentions between everything they do, or try to do. I realize it is the workings of their employers (Atari, and now PWE) who are the ones who desire money, and could care less about how they get it.
Therefore, I support Cryptic, but I do not support their employers. Because it is my belief the core root of the current issues is PWE, not Cryptic.
Why do I continue to do so, even now? One, because I hate when something I like and respect is insulted/bashed/flamed/etc in any way. And two, because I do not believe 'following orders' is grounds for blame for something so minor as business decisions over a game.
THAT is why I support Cryptic, even having been here since Open Beta, and all the implications that intails. It is my humble opinion, and I stand by it.
Added "Officer Exchange" assignments to Personnel Officers at Starfleet Academy and Klingon Academy.
These officers will allow you to take assignments that will exchange a single Green, Blue or Purple Duty Officer for 3 of one rarity level lower.
e.g.: 1 Green for 3 Whites
There are some UI issues. When you select the Very Rare or rare Exchange, it closes the window with the personnel officer. This does not happen when you select the uncommon exchange, her window remains open.

As with all Duty Officers, the type received is random.
I purchased about 100 Tactical boxes. I might say that opening them individually was quite cumbersome and I think an "Open All" command might be helpful here. Aside from that, they may be random but there are a preponderance of Ground and Space Warfare Specialists. It is almost as if each "Specialists Species" is being treated as a separate class. Whatever the reason is, they are swamping out the other Tactical and Security DOFFs.
There is also still the UI bug where if you do the same Exchange Mission more than once, the second time and beyond, your slottable DOFFs will not show unless you click on the empty DOFF slot in the lower right of the Assignment. This is a longstanding bug (Since Season 5's launch) that occurs with the "Reassign Underperforming Officers" on the Vulcan, Andorian, Tellarite, Naussican, Orion, Gorn, and Factional Personnel Officers.
P.S. Can someone check on the Cryptic's Tribbles Fleet Starbase and slot some projects? There are some of us who feel it necessary to keep progressing so we can test things at higher tiers.

There glow around consoles seem to have changed, and now there are these strange vertical lines around consoles. its very distracting and totally not needed. i hope it is just a bug and not intentional
