ok i got one. heres what the console actually does

reduces damage to teams sheild by 20% for 12 seconds

prevents normal damage from bleedthru for your team for 12 seconds.


its not a bad console, but good for a new char when your ships suck.

also trust it to be named team fortress........ sneaky steam.......

shouldnt have to start install so it make the page in steam, click on cdkey, cancel download, redeem on the sto website, and it will appear under the bundles tab of the zstore

I agree. The Federation shipyard is a sad state of affairs. So many ships, too many even.
I don't intend to buy another Fed ship until they release a real carrier, one with like 3 turning speed, 2 weapons fore and aft and 4 hangar bays.


However, I did purchase this Steamrunner pack. The VA retrofit is terrible. Going for a full DPS build on a tactical character just doesn't work. You can do loads of damage for about 15 seconds until it gets blown to pieces. Its base shield modifier cripples it too much.
It has 10 console slots, but you sacrifice one for the new console which isn't that great anyway.

The rest of the pack is very useful for anyone starting a new character though, especially an entry levele ship running 4 console slots. But then again, anyone who already has a VA will most probably be able to kit out a new character with good gear and Boff's anyway...

I will prob turn this into a torpedo boat as well. Managed to crit 400k damage yesterday in an STF using Tricobalt Mines and Dispersal Pattern Beta III

I haven't seen it mentioned here, but Branflakes has confirmed that the shield modifier is wrong. It should have a 1.0 shield modifier.

Man I'm STOked. I've been waiting for the Steamrunner forever!

And I've been planning on getting a Klingon Sci for my Sci Alt on the Federation Side, so this starter pack is perfect for her!

Sorry. I really can't squee enough here. *rushes to laugh in hysterical madness*

I can't wait to switch from my saber to this!

It's too bad the fleet quality trend for C-store ships started after the armitage/regent/excelsior though.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

That actually sucks somewhat. If they continue to take this route, it'll only be Norwegians playing with the Norway Class upon release.

Wasn't the Norway class basically introduced with that one skin for the Heavy Escort?
