Sorry if this has been asked/answered before , but I have a question in regards to :

Quote:
Rank Required: Rear Admiral / Brigadier General
Quote:
The box that the ship comes in, which cannot be opened until the minimum rank listed above, is bound upon pickup.
Is there a minimum rank required to participate in the race ?
(last year there was)
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .

Yes I added it to the blog earlier today. To get to Q's WW, you need to be 5+ (Fed) or 24+ (KDF).

Interesting stats, a Destroyeresque layout. Was expecting the Breen ship to be a type of Cruiser. Could've seen this as more of a Heavy Science build. Just replace that LT Tactical with another LT Engineering.

Though surprised on 10 console slots for a free ship. While nice, be nicer if we got a 10th console for our C-store ships (especially the refits).

Indeed! I just found Branflakes on New Romulus and gave him a preview.

Had 7 snowballs left over and knocked him down twice!
NO to ARC!

Season 9.5 = STO's NGE is Here! Welcome to the Grind!

New Crafting = It's not Crafting, is an overblown Reputation System.

Thanks !
I'll get to buying/leveling that Ferasan asap then !

EDIT : just noted that you've added the ranks to Q's WW blog (by Borticus) .
It would not hurt to add this info to this blog (breen ship blog) and also to any future blog that is related to Q's WW .
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???

Not if you think about it.

It is free today, but I bet like the Jem ship, it will likely end up in a doff pack or something down the road when people get a second chance at it.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

WTF???? Why is everybody complaining for stuff in game????
Do those brats always have to have everything best and everything new immediately?
Rising a child in the believe that everything best should be theirs?
I have no words....

Why should all ships have same power, weapons, consoles? What balance are they talking about?
Have you ever watched any of the tv series or movies?
If it should bebalanced, then Kelvin would have no problem dealing with the Narada, Enterprise would not have to rush to Wolf359 etc... I bet ther are many more examples. Ships can't be all same power and same equipment. There would be no use for class then.

But I know " I HAVE TO HAVE THE BEST I GAME" applies here as well i guess. As everywhere in life.... pappa and mami gave you everything you pointed at and when some child has better, you step on him, right?

Horray for the complaints for everything

Yeah, that really surprised me as well. I'm not sure why Cryptic went out of their way to make the ship a heavy science escort, they even went out of the way to rename it from Chel Grett Cruiser to Chel Grett Warship.

The way the NPCs dump debuffs on you, I kinda expected a Science cruiser setup with a decent turn rate. We've had so many ships with a Tactical bias lately, I would have liked to see something a little different.

Not that I really mind it, but Science was also used a lot, recently (Wells/Korath, Vesta, Recluse, Orb Weaver.

I really would have liked a sci-cruiser. On the other hand, it can use DHC, and that really begs for tac Boff slots, so... why not?

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!
