Not sure what the issue you're running into, but give it a try after the next update to Tribble goes live.
Thanjks for confirming that. I logged on just fine after Tribble's update. I was trying to use Tribble's Gateway on Android 2.2.2. Navigation is difficult. The links for Ship Systems, Fleet, etc. don't do anything when touched.

I have to do my congratulations to the development team for the work they're doing with the Gateway.
It's just starting to take form but we all can see its potential.
What's my feedback? Here's what I would like to do with it: Everything but 3D.

STO Gateway should became THE App to do anything that doesn't require the 3D environment, like its description states.
I mean any action that we can now perform ingame via UI should be ported to the Gateway.

Mail, Bank, Exchange, Trade and Tailor services, Doff, Rep & Fleet systems, chat, Journal etc...

and if possible even the istant-travel option currently available ingame (beam up and transwarp) to plan the starting point of your next full game session.

This last one may seem OT or OP at first, but it's very important to do your errands, like but not limited to, the doff system (see later)
and it will obviously be restricted to the actual valid destinations you have depending from the place you were at your last log in.

So if you're at ESD when you log off when you log into Gateway you'll only have the options to go to Academy, Ship and Sirius Sector Block (only this one)

Also, any valid Transwarp destination you have with any of your ship is in range, with the same time out we have ingame ofc.

Bridge and Fleet Starbase system should be always available because they are respectively the interior of your ship
and a transwarp destination which connects everywhere.

These last two are istant maps, but if you choose them in the gateway you can only access their features within the gateway UI
and your ingame position will not change (simulating traveling back to do your errands)

It's annoying I always have to log in the last place I was, like ESD, just to load another loading screen to beam to say Academy even if I know it was my objective prior to log in.

This will solve this problem, just like the issue with the doff assignments available in Gateway (you said you'll put them) which depend on location.

It would be nice if the gateway could provide access to the assignments in all the accessible locations but I am aware that this would need to be protected against misuse. If it's too powerful/convenient it would compete with the actual game. Obviously as a first step it would already be very cool and useful to just have access to the current location, ship and department assignments. Later there could perhaps be an option to change the current location but that would block the gateway DOff interface for an appropriate amount of time to simulate travel.

As for the full inventory issue there could be an overflow area to hold things until the player logs in again. Naturally the overflow would be "take only" as to prevent misuse as additional storage

My solution is more safe imo because it limits the traveling to the instant kind ones,
preventing misuse such as jumping across all map faster than you could ingame,
but still encouraging players to acquire the ships with these features.

All with a nice LCARS interface that really simulates your captain activity while "at desk",
keeping you costantly "in touch" in the little breaks of the day doing your virtual errands

so that you can enjoy the action the 3D client provides with say a foundry mission, zone etc
when you have an hour you can dedicate to the game without bothering to say, reading other mails.

I think you devs got the point, I apologize for the lenght of the post, but it's full of nice suggestions and worth a read imo.
About the rest, please bring back doff system alive as it was prior to dilithium extortion on academy services.

is the gateway active still? 've tried several times to log in, and I continue to get the "login failed, probably because the one-time code was incorrect" error.

I was able to log in and use it just now. Did you perhaps try during the maintenance period this morning?

I disagree to allow DOff assignment allocation through the Gateway - you would never have to play the game if it were allowed. Actually, you'd have to play to get the level needed to start DOffing, after that you would never have to log on the game.

Ultimately, it would defeat the purpose of the game.

Um...wasn't the original *concept* for STO Gateway about a way to doff while not in the game? They merely expanded it to allow other features (but not yet remote doffing).

Since the game is more than doffing, I think it'd be a safe (and much wanted) feature.

Also, any reason why fleet pages don't display the fleets logo but instead a generic emblem?

Today's patch notes say that we're supposed to be able to access fleet projects from Gateway now, but I'm not seeing anything new.

very nice addition to the gateway, for the projects that are running you should add the timer and images for the projects like in game, but i really like the direction the gateway is going to good job here!

another thing i would like is some API to get information on the fleet. we use the leaderboard and the number of provisions to calculate what people can get. always copying the data is not that nice for that

another thing: can you change the language of the gatway? it's german for me (the few parts that are translated) but i would like to use it in english because i also play the game in english... and if it's not possible at the moment to select language, pls add the possibility
