I use the TOS interior, just for something different, and the trophy is about twice as high as the conference room it goes in. It clips into the ceiling, lol.

Supposedly they're re-doing the trophy to make it look more like the new entity. I hope we get to choose between old and new, though.

Thanks for ignoring Cruisers and Science Ship captains, Cryptic.

EDIT: Seems Branflakes Misunderstood, this is about the First Place Trophy / Accolade you get doing Fleet Actions.

And that STO has evolved to where its about DPS and Heal Spamming.
I got first with an Engineer in a Vesta, so not sure what you mean
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

For those thinking you need an escort for first place, I'm coming in first place pretty much every time I'm doing it, (at time of writing about 6 or 7 times in a row). My inventory is literally cluttered with the purple mark X reward items.
I'm flying the Intrepid Retrofit, and focus mostly on healing my teammates while switching to do as much DPS as I can when no one is in need of healing or when my stuff is on cooldown. I don't think I'm doing anything special, but I do juggle power levels a lot, and use Gravity Well off cooldown on the CE to pull in shards and clutter everything together for AOE.

I've gotten first place multiple times with an Orion Marauder Cruiser fitted with Plasma Beams and the Romulan set, and Advanced Slavers as the fighters.

I've also gotten first place twice in a Galaxy Retrofit fitted with Polarized Disputor cannons and turrets.

Going in with a carrier I can get first place nearly every time if I put my mind to it. I normally don't as I'm so sick of doing it. Thanks for not putting in a timer to let someone know when his character is eligible to get a shard, Cryptic.

Weirdly, the more I play the more I think that escorts have the hardest time getting consistent firsts in the CE event. They get the highest DPS sure, but they struggle with points for other sources and end up in second or third. Instead, I'm finding it easiest to get first in a cruiser these days. Go figure.

Really? That's funny because I have received the 1st place accolade several times, each time I was piloting a sci ship, one with my Intrepid, two with my Orb Weaver and once in my Varanas.

I haven't gotten first place multiple times on any character (I think), but the two times I did get it were in my engineer's Kamarag and my tactical's Varanus. And the best part is I hadn't even optimized my builds or tried to get first place, I'm just in it for the shards.

Funny how this is supposed to be difficult.

I cant explain it but my tac in a JHAS gets 3rd or nothing, every time, and my sci gets 1st place, every time.
