# 1 STF's

First of all,

im a great fan of STO! I think Cryptic went the right way and i hope STO will last for ever because i bought a lifetime sub this month :p

BUT

i must say the STF drops are **** i dont want to do a STF 100-200 times to get a ground or space set! the difficulty is ok. Hard work for hard equipment. But you must revise the drops! please now not in a year.

In the beginning,I played STO with a few friends... who didn't stay, or play less frequently, at different times, and different levels.

I have taken 4 officers to VA, and 1 to LG on the KDF side... all in solo play. I haven't completed a single STF, but I have always wondered about them. I have been in the queue lines a couple of times. The only ones that worked were the bugged ones like Starbase 14, or impossible ones like Big Dig, or Crystalline Catastrophe.

Has Cryptic, or will Cryptic ever make a casual player (read n00b) friendly STF?

Rickpa: Those are all fleet actions and not STFs

When you're on your VA open the PvE queue and the STFs are all at the top of the quick play list. For your first few runs through select the normal missions and then kick up to elite later if you want the extra challenge. They also have STF in one of the columns so you can see which is an STF and which a fleet action.
I'd probably go with the Cure (space) first as the optional is simple and it's easier than the other STFs on normal (less shield drains than KA and Infected) so you can learn without having to worry about your shields every 10 seconds.

i think "hard" is not the problem but you get nothing for it ... you must do the missions hundret times to get the rewards.

The mirror event is just the Borg Alert with different ships. Kill four groups, kill the command ship. Nothing new about that.
