# 1 Lexicon?
02-11-2013, 02:07 PM
Is there a Lexicon? I play STO (Star Trek Online) when it first started, but took a long break and came back recently.

I have been reading many "threads" and I can't understand some of it.

I know what DoFF, Boff, but what about all the other stuff like skills/equipment? (like skills are all in abbreviation)

I figure I can post on this thread to find out on what half of this stuff means. (please post stuff refer to STO abbreviation only )

Thanks

I presume STOWiki would have everything you need to know about weapon / gear modifiers and such?

they do, but what does THIS mean?

BOffs:
Lt Tac: TS1/TT1, BFAW2
Ensign Tac: TT1
Cmdr Engi: ET1, EPtW2, EPtS3, Aux2SIF3
LtCmdr Engi: EPtA1, RSP1, EPtW3
Lt Sci: HE1, TSS2

DOffs:
Conn Officer (TT CD red)x2
DCEx2
WCEx1

All I see is a bunch of letters. I am hoping there is a page explaining what does this mean.

Those are usually non-official abbreviations for Bridge Officer abilities and DOff specialisations used by forum members for brevity - there is no lexicon for those. That said, it's just a very simple matter of matching the initials to the lists on the Wiki:

TS1 = Torpedo Spread I

TT1 = Tactical Team I

BFAW2 = Beam Fire At Will II

ET1 = Engineering Team I

EPtW2 = Emergency Power to Weapons II

EPtS3 = Emergency Power to Shields III

Aux2SIF3 = Auxiliary to Structural III

EPtA1 = Emergency Power to Auxiliary I

RSP1 = Reverse Shield Polarity I

EPtW3 = Emergency Power to Weapons III

HE1 = Hazard Emitters I

TSS2 = Transfer Shield Strength II

Conn Officer (TT CD red)x2 = 2x Conn Officers with Tactical Team Cooldown reduced

DCEx2 = 2x Damage Control Engineers

WCEx1 = 1x Warp Core Engineer


Sounds like you're trying to duplicate somebody else's build without understanding it...

My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.

I am trying to "study" build, but there are a LOT out there. So I am trying to see patterns, maybe something that I can use. I get lost in the lingo and have no clue what I am reading.

That was one of many example builds I see on the forum. Many people start using abbreviation and some don't make sense to me.

Thanks for the clarification.
