That makes me wonder, can you respawn as a fed? I know if a fed gets killed, respawns then logs out then in, he will be "teamed" with klings, wonder if it works the other way around...

Well alright Klingons?. I?m not crying about it. In fact, it is sort of funny watching all my comrades explode while I sometimes do not; only to be sitting in a swarm of Klingon Ships after the dust clears. Sure my hull is below 20%... and sure I?m ramming the first poor sol in front of me?However, it is completely valid that I can now sit and protect the spawn from those who are laying mines with my TBR-III. Just saying?

Is that how it works? It seemed to work differently before.

Sweet! I need to get some Fed kills with my Fed captain.

Also, I'm pretty sure I've seen a KDF on the Fed side a few times in Ker'rat.

I sometimes switch my fed to the klinky side when there are too many feds, makes it more interesting. I've never seen a klink do it though, not sure it's possible.

As for mining spawns, I say go for it. When the feds outnumber the klinks they usually spawn camp once the objective gets done. When the klinks outnumber the feds THEY spawncamp too, thats just how it works. If mining the spawns with mines makes them more useful and makes me laugh when i warp in then instantly fly half way across the map clutching my chair and squealing, then why not? It's a laugh.

Just tested it: It works the other way round, too.

So, all I need to do is just die, respawn, and log out? I was trying to figure out how I was doing it when the time-out timer used to be 15 mins.

No, you have to just log out when at the opposing faction's spawn point, and then quickly log in with the same character again.

From the Ker'rat wiki page, it says:

Meanwhile the opposite faction registers as allies and cannot attack you. This will fix itself if a player changes instances or leaves the map.

Is that not the case anymore?

Well, I just tested it as Klingon, and for a Klingon, STOWiki's description is equivalent to what I wrote. Haven't tested it as Fed lately, though.

Hmmm, that may be a good reason to blow the dust off my fed and spawn him as a KDF in ker'rat.
