if it did then it must be coding in the patch or the maintenance they did to make this happen to some people
The launcher error started occurring before maintenance this morning, so it was unrelated.

That would be fun. The only question is, which ship would we design?

Compensation, what about all those KDF players who couldn't do the Academy Mission (Learning the Lore of the Empire) for over a month last year? None of those got Dilithium rewards for that blunder. Cryptic will never compensate any of us for things like this, wrong I know but it's a company with very little loyalty to the customers who show loyalty to them, like those who continued a subscription for like a year or two when there was no development and the game and Cryptic's future hanged in the balance. Oh how such things are forgotten.

As for the last about Stahl's favourite things last year, he listed just about everything that was done, propaganda at it's finest. It's polished to look like they did more when in fact they didn't and what they did do wasn't even tested. I've never encountered a game with this many bugs on a live public server nor such an upset and disgruntled customer base. Goes to show how much they are doing right.

Dan and Dev's please just make new missions, more story, bring the KDF up to the same content completeness as the Federation then work on both factions equally and fairly while you put down the ground work for the Romulans who a lot of people here are eagerly awaiting. Make us all happy, these endless grind and lock box ships aren't doing it, that's not content, at least not what your customers are after.

Only if they open it up to all players not just those inside the US's boarders. Offer Zen or Dilithium or all the Lock box ships ever done as a reward, something that wouldn't complicate running a contest worldwide. Maybe even a free lifetime to those who don't have it, if they do allow them to choose a friend to receive it instead.

I disagree. The free Odyssey was (and still is) a very solid cruiser. It is strictly better than the assault cruiser (and clearly the star cruiser). Capable of dishing the same damage, yet being a much better tank. Not to say it offers great customisation options if you want to have, say, GW.

Therefore it was the best free cruiser you could get. Now, of course, you can only get it from a Tier V shipyard --> Hardly free, and therefore any good.
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Design that long overdue Tier 5 C-Store Raptor
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

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

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Any idea if the new free ship will be T3 or T5? from what I have read (nothing official so far) the free ship is T3 and the T5 is going to cost ZEN

Hope its a Free T5, but then they will make certain Z-Store versions for sure like the oddy

I sure hope it's a single ship and not a pack when it goes into the C-store (Cryptic Store), hate those 5k Zen ship packs, to get the most out of the ship you need to fork double what it will usually cost. This game is already too expensive and you don't get value for your money not to mention the character bound stuff which is a real pain on those hard to get items.

How is the game expensive? It's free.

I thoroughly enjoyed 2012, the game improved in so many ways with a great FE series, new play grounds and lots of new toys. There wasn't a single bug that stopped me playing although there were some serious ones that were fixed reasonably quickly once identified.

I am encouraged by the fact there are 2 million players, or is that characters? Nevertheless it's a lot and the forums are alive with all kinds of ideas and suggestions.

The future looks very bright indeed for STO, our only Star Trek fix available unless you count reruns.

The only thing that I find objectional are some of the purile and immature whining that we see from the basement nerds on some threads and in particular this one. Fortunately the DEVs have thick skins and are able to ignore the "push button get bacon" brigade and cater for the wider less obnoxious majority of the fans out there.

Keep up the great work Brandon, Jeremy, Dan and the rest of you, congratulations on your 3rd year anniversary, looking forward to the next 3 years
