I have the same problems with the space set. I got the rare engine tech 7 times!!!! SEVEN TIMES!!!! I need the proto tech!!!! I spoke with a player who got the proto tech engine 4 times. So what are you doing cryptic??? It was easier to get the M.A.C.O. Team Commander Accolade as one full set of 3 pieces. It is a lottery and it seems to make no difference if you solve the optional or failed. PLEASE CHANGE THAT BACK TO THE OLDER RULES. In older days you got your special item after spending 3-4 hours for one STF. Now the STF missions are short but you need month for one item. Why???

dood98998 - Like I said in older posts, I myself fly the anniversary edition Odyssey that I refer as the NX-Odyssey since its the prototype before the C-Store versions came out. I only run this ship since I'm stuck as a true F2P and can't get anything better, but like any good Star Trek captain and engineer (who says Vulcans don't make good engineers), I took a ship that was lacking in several areas and made the damn thing work by adjusting power levels and installing the right parts, so my NX-Odyssey became an effective battle platform, that can pummel just about any large target to death and survive heavy pounding from the vary thing I'm attacking. Too bad most people in the escorts don't realize this and ignore the small ships that swarm me, which makes it difficult for me to do my job of killing the big ones, cruisers are too slow and can't maneuver enough to chase small ships all over the map, that is the role of the escorts, think of it as a bomber group, the fighters protect the bombers, while the bombers eliminate the objective.

Thats how it should be, but an escort with 3 parts borg + maco shield can sit in front of just about anything using only TSS/e2s + Tac Team while sending the borg a double birdie . As for the 'small targets' problem, just get BFaw and/or Tractor Repulsors to destroy/push them away. I can handel 3 spheres or 5 probes by Faw(ing) the hell out of them.
When in doubt, (hehe) c4!

Have been for awhile now... Be it a large sum of EDC's or tradeing rare tech for proto would be nice to know there is a sure fire way to get your gear

Since the failure of the STFs and lack of cap level content for people stuck as true Free-to-Paly, I have been taking a long break from STO, there is basically nothing left for me in this game.

It would be nice to get more of the sets, but with the current player base for any PvE mission you have to que up for, they are like "Shaka, when the walls fell." instead of "Darmok, and Jalad... at Tanagra." or "Picard and Dathon... at El-Adrel." , hopefully these select quotes from a Star Trek TNG episode sink-in.

As for STO itself, until there is more cap level free content or a better player base for STFs, it will be "Terreut, his ship docked." for me. (that last one is my own version of a Tamarian phrase with my STO character name)

Agreed, rare tech + EDCs + other crafting materials to make a proto.

IGE is killing me.

Burnt out ? Naw, not yet. I've gotten some pretty epic loot drops before S6, but I'm afraid to do STF's since S6's release because of all the weapon bugs, not to mention replacing some weapons that were outright broken by S6. I'm afraid I might find more bonus bugs that havent been reported yet.

...Besides, the dilithium grind takes MUCH more time than it used to, time I could be spending doing STF's if I chose to.
