Regardless of whether the maintenance later is S6 or not, I took the liberty of pre-assigning fleet construction teams & sending pioneering & exploitation plans to unit commanders.

Even if its a dud (which very well could be - rushed releases do not bode well for stability), it was a good exercise in fleet organization.

Also why 7 hrs. Can't your team manage it better by spitting the maintenance between 2 days to minimize down time?
They either don't want to...or they don't know how to do a simple thing like that. and as for me it's 9 AM to 3 PM tomorrow...can they at least have the balls to ASK us whether we want something instead of assuming?

It'll be 9 AM to 4 PM. Your math was a little off there. Sucks a bit since that's when I tend to play, but I don't mind so much if it turns out to be the new season... even if it's buggy. I'm not done with the available seasons yet, but I look forward to more content.

If this is the start of season six, I think the casual single player is going to lose out. *shrugs* Unless they introduce something for my playing style, I am completely unsure as to where I will fit. While everyone builds up their fleets, fleet ships, and fleet bases, I think I will end up being lost in the background. After being involved with "Star Trek: Online" for four to five months, I have started to also lose interest. I might not be able to wait until season seven. As we get further and further away from season five, without any new single and casual player options, I am gradually loosening my grip on this great game. If there was a way to obtain these high powered fleet ships, without belonging to a fleet, I can see myself hanging on for a bit longer.

I just don't see the clearing through the trees.

I really don't know what to do.

I feel lost.

They still haven't said anything either way as far as I have seen. Why risk disappointing a certain percentage of the fanbase that are expecting it to be season 6 and just come out and say that it is not from the start?

Even if it is not S6 and it is just the conversion, just be up front and say that this is all it is.
Unless of course that it is indeed S6.

Just my 2 cents from a PR point of view.

Why not just join a fleet? I tend to be a single player gamer myself but in this case its not really like you are forced to interact with others, its more a group to do missions with. You should atleast give it a try.

If you've only been playing for four or five months then you shouldn't really worry. You haven't played long enough to have perfected a ship with purple mk XII weapons and consoles. (If you have, then you're a master player!!)

Just remember that it will take everyone a Cryptic-set seven month minimum to build a tier 5 shipyard. That gives you seven months until others get uber-ships. Even so, unless you PvP you won't really feel the impact of superior ships on your hull.

My advice? Keep playing as you have been. Maybe start a new toon or two. With any luck season 7 will be fast approaching by the time uber-ships appear and you'll be all good again.

Wepons, are easy... MACO or Omega XII and consoles though, thats a pain and super expensive.. I doubt anyone managed to get all purple XII consoles in 5 months on there own.
