Not quite that rough.

I want something of a Generic Timetable. Meaning this: Are Katanas coming next month? Mid-Summer? This year? Season 6? Season 7?

An answer similar to any of the examples I provided is what I want.

So, Cryptic, what is the answer to my question?

# 22 tac and science ships

The amount of cruisers that are being released is rediculus.
lets have a look at the ships real quick here....

tactical ships (escorts)
Vice admiral
-tactical escort retrofit
-multi vector advanced escort
rear admiral
-advanced escort
-fleet escort

science ships (science)
vice admiral
-long range science vessel retrofit
rear admiral
-deep space science vessel
-advanced research vessel
-recon science vessel

engineering ships (cruisers)
Vice admiral
-odyssey tactical cruiser
-odyssey operations cruiser
-odyssey science cruiser
-dreadnought cruiser
-exploration cruiser retrofit
rear admiral
-assualt cruiser
-star cruiser
-advanced heavy cruiser retrofit


if anything science captains DESERVE another ship, they have ONE vice admiral ship engineers have FIVE, whats with all the cruisers?
why do you keep delaying the release of escorts and science ships?
and I just have to say this...you can call it the odyssey tactical ship all you want, but at the end of the day.... its still a cruiser. same goes for the science version of the odyssey

Q: (Celtus) Will there be a possibility to upgrade OLDER ships with more slots for consoles or weapons to make them more useful for newer content?

Dstahl: We have been riding the edge with CBS in regards with retrofit ships in the game. Since STO takes place 40 years past the events of the movie Nemesis, there is concern of having too many old ships battling it out with newer enemies. That said, we have talked about ways to customize older starships and consider a crafting-like retrofit system. That does not have buyoff yet and so we are on hold until we can work out all the details of how that would even work.
/facepalm

Nice selective question answering there dStahl.

There were plenty of questions regarding LOWER TIER ships on this months thread, but you take the one that specifically asks about OLDER ships.

LOWER TIER =/= OLDER (At least some of the time)

Nova
Excalibur
Sabre
Olympic
Akira

All these ships are NEWER than some of your T5 ships!

If old is an issue, then kick the Excelsior, Galaxy, D'kyr and so forth, down a tier or two where they belong.

Otherwise, bring those newer, lower tiered ships UP.

Forget it. This topic is just not worth it anymore, and since there is no movement on the horizon in the forseeable future, there really isn't much point in sticking around.

/sigh

Better to get some sort of answer than none at all. Cryptic may be the name of the company (and an appropriate word for some of the answers), but geez, so many players are Cynical.

I hate to be the first one telling you, but if you haven't noticed by watching the shows: Star Trek is a cruiser dominated universe.
In my opinion there are already too much (pew pew) escorts in this game. Maybe it's just me, but i want to play a game that is more like what i saw in the shows, not some generic Sci Fi action game, with dogfighting spacefighters and thousands of minespam and huge Carriers driving around.
If i wanted to, i would play another game for sure.


Live long and prosper.

some of the lower ships are just to small or old to justify them having sufficient hit-points and capabilities to be tier 5, but others are a perfect fit. knocking the galaxy out of tier 5 is silly, it should have been the star cruiser next to the sovereign natively at tier 5 all along. what about the intrepid then, its basically a smaller, scaled down version of the galaxy, it certainly shouldn't be a higher tier then it.

Just wonder when the fleet gets its StarBase like the one like for example like ESD, it's it possible for a Vice admiral level 50 to have a smaller verision like starbase 375, to have it's fleet of ships arranged in manner, that will be awesome.

also wondering if you later customise the interior decks of the captiain quarters, with a walk in wardrobe, also armory. like purchasing something like from Ikea.

Is it possible to go to your ships hanger and select your shuttle craft, instead of via transporter pad, and walking up to your collection of shuttles in that hanger of the type of ship that you have currenty have on,

I know that there's a Blueprints of the Galaxy class, deck by deck, is it possible to have some thing like that for each ship class, maybe later down the seasons.

Completely ignored my question about fixing the chase camera. How can you continue to ignore such basic and game breaking issues?

The current implementation is buggy and slow to the point of useless.

1. When turning it often gets caught in a swinging loop. <<< GAME BREAKING!!!
2. Chase cam should not show me the top(or side) of my ship while turning, it should show what is in front of me. <<< BAD IMPLEMENTATION

Every single person that prefers to use the keyboard to control their ship is being forced to use this stupid buggy camera implementation... It's my fracking game view - and I can't trust it...

Could you create and ignore a more serious bug (and annoyance)??? I don't see how...

I love the game, but seriously, WTF???

Thanks Oaks, for sticking around to answer questions after the monthly Q/A, very insightful even though some of it was bad news.
