I just returned to STO after quitting around the middle of season 2 and am confused
The game looks really good and i enjoyed walking around the academy . On my way there i saw some ships with borg tech sticking out of them ! How do i acquire this ? Also will my borg bridge officer stage a coup if get some borg tech ?
Im happy with my ships and my captains skills ! Are there any new officer abilities ?
As a new vice admiral where do i obtain gear(PVE)?
Im in a ship with all green rear admiral upper half gear. ( deep space science vessel )
1.5mil energy credits . 50k star fleet merit
Medal of excel 235 , Emblems 54 , Badges of exploration 5th 75, Mark of exploration 5
Was there ever a use found for the blue particles found through scanning?
Yes. The Rare Particle Traces are now used in crafting higher end (quality) equipment. At the high end of the sake. You can craft the Aegis Gear set (ship equipment) EAch piece is nice, but when you have more then 1 equipped you get abonus effects (Defense and a stacking resistance buff).
The Aegis set looks like something from Tron while the Borg set makes your ship have Borg equipment. There is also the Breen set from the Deferi series which seems to only give a different impulse trail and the Reman shield from the new romulan series. The Borg and Breen sets have a special power for using all of the set.
