Nothing found.

Now Data should have told Krite: Well, our weak scanners can actually only work within six kilometers so Riker was just trolling you. We'll have to scan out here all year to cover it with our six kilometer limit.
Actually, scanners work up to 25 STO-km (which, given the size of planets in the game, simply cannot be "kilometers") to detect targets, and map-wide to detect anomalies of any kind, including mission objectiveson my assault cruiser, and I bet you could gear a tier 5 science ship to much higher levels with consoles and energy levels and such.

Does anyone know the maximum achievable sensor range to detect a non-stealthed shuttle in STO?

It's nice that you steer this topic back to Startrek minitua to save it from a watchful moderator's eyes, but it isn't really on topic, is it?

But if you need an additional data point for sensor ranges - The Wounded (TNG) may offer some insights as well. The Nebula/Galor fight is only followed on long-range scans, IIRC, and I seem to rememeber that some range information was in there as well. (And it fits non-show information from technical manuals that indicates ranges in the hundreds of thousand kilometers for weapons...) There is probably more with long-range detection of ships at warp et al.
BTW: Comparing TOS and TNG battles - TOS was the show with extreme high speed and long range battles - ships would routinely fly at warp speeds for maneuvers. Of course, back then they didn't have the SFX to show battles anyway, so they didn't need to come up with maneuvers that must fit onto a TV Screen.

Star Wars the Old Republic is the single most amazing game I've ever cancelled my subscription to (sorry, vet bills are killing me this year, needed to cut out some fluff from my expenses).

I am thinking of doing the same but because my time is hard to get in the game and with a new promo I will have a lot less time. I have been running a lot of ME3 MP though. Another promotion yesterday. So if they ever fix the game ending, I will have a lot of war assets from the start without doing anything.

Plus ME3 has kind of soured my whole gaming outlook. I'm really waiting on 1.2. If it doesn't re-energize me to want to play like I did before ME3 release then I'll be canceling too.

Mass Effect 3 MP is a lot of fun. I should have started it earlier, but I am a story addict and couldn't focus on anything else but completing the game.

Nooooooo!

Now you have given those (you know who you are), people the ammunition to say that TOR is failing!!!!!

That said, I haven't played since ME3 came out

Still, not going to cancel my sub and when 1.2 comes out, what out for my new toon (Black'dynamite), The first Chiss Jedi Shadow!!!!

I nearly had a moment of weakness and hovered over the play button on STO yesterday, but then I thought about what exactly was I going to do and decided to go play Wasteland instead.

2k machine and I'm playing a 25 year game and loving it!

I wish I had chosen to play a Vanguard after playing the MP part of Mass 3 and instead went Adept for the main game.

Still only played 20hrs into the game. Playing it on Insanity mode for my first run through and for the first time, the game really does feel insane (my reflexes are not what they used to be).

Hopefully I can finish this week so I can see what all the fuss is about the ending.

First time I have found the Adept class quite boring and usually I have heaps of fun with it.

Anyone know if their is a nightmare mode after completing?

First let me ask this question, who are we first, Star Trek fans or Wars nerds. Let me remind all of you why we are all ST fans.

1. We don't believe in any weird religions, but the human yearning for science and the advancement of our race

2 our dads don't into a mockery of a Borg drone bad guy with a breathing problem

3. Come do i have to say it, Trek could blow the crap out of Wars.

4. we could have a ST future while on the other hand we could have no future at all.


So i just wanted to remind you all who we are in this STO community, Trekkies to the end and we love

phasers not lightsabers

well when you loose 500k players and 300k subs included in the 500k for the first 3 month then yes i would say failing there are many many many good things about tor that are wonderful but space combat well its just NO.

i still have a sub because of the people i play with but more and more i am coming back to sto why cause the ground combat is complex and awesome the space is epic and really feels like a epic space fight and also when i jump with my chars in sto it does not look like i am trying to take a giant crap and only getting 2 ft of the ground.

immersion and realism are missing from swtor it just is and thats a shame here are 2 examples

1. a bounty hunter cannont use a jet pack to either escape in a fight or to travel through the game

2. the jedi and the sith are weak and pointless they are the elite of the galaxy but are portrayed like they are some first year rookies with a few magic tricks.

i can go on for days but if i had spent that amount of money making the game then i would not be impressed
