I did the staging area and also ran Azure Nebula Rescue. I very much enjoyed what I saw and look forward to season 7. Everything ran without any glitches at all, ty STO for a great preview and a great time.
I just finished playing that new stf, on normal it took forever, they cut through my mk12 honor guard equipment like it wasn't there. And when it was finally over about an hour later. I got NOTHING.. no dilithum, no omega marks. No shiny drops I could vendor, no shiny drops I could convert to dilthum for a nice weapon.
I didn't even get the reward I was supposed to.
Reputation system is just another grind, it only benefits the people that have the time to generate the resources.
I got an infraction on this board before because I spoke out against the old STFs.. oddly they changed less than 6 months later so you didn't have to play a long drawn out horrible mission for little reward. (Oddly my infraction stands though my point was obviously valid)
I will once again stop playing STFs because there is not enough reward for the effort put in.
I won't participate in your reputation system because honestly it's just another resource hog grind. I have enough of that with starbases. And it has nothing to do with reputation. Would have been better if this system actually was reputation bases on statistics through STFs like average dies per stf vs average kills ect... based on performance.
Everything is not costing and requiring dilithum, but one of the main sources of dilithum is being reduced.
I like the new missions, I dislike the lack of any rewards. (or any substantial rewards)
I mean I've gotta grind Omega marks and other resources so I gotta grind omega marks to buy stuff, oh and I have to also use dilithum to do both grinds? Keep it.
I like the idea of the rep system, I dislike it's nothing but a grind reward.
Don't matter though, there will be enough on here will praise the grind crap, because they like it.
This is a game, not a job... grind this to be able to buy this, but you have to grind before you grind, then you have to grind to grind.
Who there has lost their mind? And who's idea of fun is endless grinding?
Of course as a lifer my opinion does not matter since you already got my money. I'm just sad to see changes that will drive most long term players off.
Im having trouble with tribble =O.o= Im doing the dailies trying to get in my hour as I explore the new content, but I keep getting kicked from the server, plus the lag has slowed me. I have to keep restarting the clock all afternoon?
BTW, what I have seen so far seems really cool. This new Romulan content, i hope it starts to bring back the old Star Trek players and fans, Id like to see more people using the theme like they used to before f2p.
love what I'm seeing for season7 so far, wish I hadnt had to recopy my character over to tribble, though (long story) then I would be able to check out the embassy on new romulus...oh well I can wait a bit
Seems kind of odd, I went into Bridge view and walked about the ship. In the ship selection I selected my shuttle and made it my current vessel. Then I left the interior and found myself on my escort. With one difference. I had an extra officer position on the UI. I was able to put an officer in it and use it in a fight. Is this supposed to happen?
It's a BUG...
Borticus posted in another thread that it will be fixed by the time Season 7 hits.
Has something to do with how They connected the new option to have a Shuttle ship permanently available without having to actually switch to it.
For some reason, it's putting your shuttle BO's on your main ship's list.

There are No Longer any STO Veterans... We're Just People who have Played the Game for a Long Time.
I Really Do Miss the little TOP Button at the bottom of the threads.
There are a great number of new misssions, should expand the abilities of STOL The graphics of the homeworld are fantastic. Just did staging area but lots to do. Look forward to fully interacting with alll sectors in the new sector block
Have just played again for another hour or so. This time on New Romulus. Like with the sectors no bugs to report. Barely scratched the surface on New Romulus, but what I did do I really enjoyed. Will seriously be looking forward to it going live. Alot of care and attention has gone into season 7. This should be commended
Yeay, a new toy to play with I hope we get to keep the bug sprayer ^^
Something new to explore in an exploring game, I hope u keep adding that. The daily grind can be a bit repeatative, but sometimes u just wanna see new things thrown into the game that DO let u explore strange new worlds. I think this will be fun new content. Once we get past the cruel grinding for the starbase and embassey, i think we can sit back and enjoy the game...please keep the classic star trek coming. As I have a few toons in holodeck that i like to use for that very thing. Want to see what im up to, google me (CatStarSTO)
Overall I like it. Huge world created on New Romulus. Its nifty. I love that there are notifiers in the mini map to the next mission targets.
The instances I find need a faster respawn for baddies, I played 3 in the couple hours I was gaming and while they were packed with players none of them achived 100% cause we were killing off the baddies too fast and standing around waiting for the next batch to "beam in" By then the time ran out.
the time it takes to FINISH anythign is my biggest critique. For someone who doesn't get a lot of game time like myself I don't want to have a daily only half done by the time I've played for an hour. Increase the percentages, this includes the dailys in the Sector too.
I LOVE the new scan, stuff like that, awesome.
Please dont' make more things cost dilitium unless you are going to let us sell stuff with dilithium too...no wait, use our credits instead. too many currencies for a game based on a universe with only a couple
