I wish we had Ferasans on the FSF Starbase.

[6/24 23:12] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 126254 (48978) Radiation Damage to Tactical Cube. Hehe. Suck it Borg!
[10/8 15:47] [Combat (Self)] Crystalline Entity deals 98082 (147136) Kinetic Damage to you with Warp Core Breach. WUT? I blame Kurland for this and all other problems in STO.

It does. Of course, promotion to Elite is at the Masters's discretion. So asking may or may not be a good idea, depending on which Master you ask. Alecto promoted you, though, so no worries! :-D

So close to having my last two turrets. Just need 4.9million total right now.

That is because you are buying too quickly. You buy up all the ones priced at 2 million, and the only ones left are 3-4 million. I made that very same mistake with my Fleet Negh'Var, and I do not intend to repeat this.

In the end, you choosing today to buy is actually good for me, because it gives time for the Dilithium Exchange to stop going up the moment I post an offer, and the item Exchange to lower the prices again after you finish your build. If the Dilithium Exchange ever stops trolling me, my plan is to buy 1-2 turrets a day, which will allow for the price battles to lower the cost again between purchases. Even if this takes me a week to outfit my Odyssey, it will give me a lower cost than buying all at once.

Alecto did request that shadow cats ask about promotions so it would be easier for the masters to keep up.

Why is our fleet set up the way it is? To prevent this.

The Ferasan Shadow Force is a solid fleet with solid leadership. We want to ensure it stays that way. However, as the fleet grows, we will most likely miss some promotions. It is not due to elitism or lack of caring. It is entirely because we just can't keep up with everyone.

If you think you are up for promotion, please contact a Master. Worst thing we could do is decline the promotion which leaves you exactly where you are now. It never hurts to ask.

As for promotion to Master, we have enough for now and you never have to ask about those. If we feel you are worth of being a Master, we will contact you.

I wonder how long until it makes its way into the game. Next patch?


I know in my case, I was never able to make good use of it as a Cruiser. It just seemed in an identity crisis between Cruiser and Science. The high level Science instead of investing in Tactical meant that the DPS was inferior to the default ships of the tier. Although the higher shield and hull did compensate for this, the elongated batted got tedious very quickly. After a while, I switched back to the Stargazer (T3), and the Star Cruiser (T5). The Fleet Ambassador version having a universal slot, well, let's hope it gives someone some usefulness.

What do they mean by "a system that promotes a new Fleet Leader after 30 days of inactivity?" As far as I know, no such system exists, and it will not exist until someone can link me to a page on the STO website that says this explicitly.

I was in a Fleet for a long time that had exactly such an issue. The leader went missing since September. By December, I was the only Fleet Admiral who ever logged in, plus I was #1 in the Leaderboard, but I never once saw any notification asking me if I wanted to become the leader of the fleet.

Apparently there is a system that lets the next highest rank claim leadership if the head honcho has been inactive for 30 days. I've heard that a button or something appears on the roster.

Not an issue with this fleet. You are lucky to go 30 hours without one of us Masters logging in.
