TRIBBLE has been updated to a new build.
ST.30.20130513a.3

General:
  • Copying characters from Holodeck to Tribble has been re-enabled.
  • The Scorpion Fighter has been updated so that the Borg Deflector is no longer comically oversized.
  • The Aquarius Destroyer now has the Type 6 material option properly available.
  • Slightly improved the visual appearance of most of the Federation ship materials.
  • The Rator and Chulan systems have swapped locations.
  • Romulan Captains should now be able to train their bridge officers in all of the trainable skills they know.
  • Updated the Romulan Tutorial and Turning Point to grant additional Reman costume options.
    • These costumes are usable by Reman Captains and Reman Bridge Officers.
    • Existing captains may not receive these costume unlocks unless they have not yet completed the Tutorial, as they are given as Mission Rewards.
  • The Tiercel Shuttle now has a unique costume.

Missions:
  • Added a waypoint to the Federation Safehouse so players can find the Spy Master easier.
  • Updated Tradecraft for KDF-allied Romulans to resolve an issue with the Ajilon Intelligence File.
  • The minicontacts in Second Wave are no longer standing quite so close to the viewscreen.
  • Blind Men Tell All Tales: Prisoners should no longer fall onto their backs when they are beamed out.
  • Changed the name of Rhi Atmosphere Event in the PvE queue to Atmosphere Assault.
  • Updated Undying so the mission will no longer get stuck if a Mugato gets stuck in his room.

Systems:
  • Destabilized Plasma Torpedo: Resolved an issue that caused this power to inflict 1 more tick of damage over time than was intended.
  • The minimum power level of any subsystem has been reduced to 15.
  • Resolved an issue that caused all summoned combat pets to report as 1 level higher than they actually were.
  • Updated the description for Singularity Overcharge to more accurately reflect its functionality.
    • This is a text change only.
  • The Jackal Mastiff combat pet obtained in the mission Manhunt will now level as the player does.
  • Players that reach Level 30 will now properly unlock their Profession-specific Traits.
  • Photonic Fleet has been rebuilt!
    • Romulan Captains will now create Photonic Warbirds when using this ability.
    • Altered which ships can be summoned at each rank, and the odds of each appearing:
      • Rank I = 3 Frigates w/ 10% chance of each upgrading to a Cruiser.
      • Rank II = 3 Cruisers w/ 10% of each upgrading to a Battleship.
      • Rank III = 1 Battleship and 2 Cruisers w/ 50% of each upgrading to a Battleship.
    • Ships summoned by Photonic Fleet will now always have the correct abilities and weaponry, will not drop loot, and will expire and appear using the correct photonic FX.
    • All Photonic Ships are now smarter about acquiring new targets during combat.
    • If there are no targets nearby, Photonic Ships will now attempt to follow their owner until a new target can be acquired.
    • Photonic Fleet now has a maximum duration of 60 seconds, and will no longer expire if combat ends.
    • Photonic Ships now generate drastically more threat than they previously did, and have higher Defense values.
  • Photonic Capacitor
    • Updated the description to repair some inconsistent data:
      • This trait can be triggered by any Science ability, not only shield heals.
      • This trait can only be triggered once every 10 seconds, and will only apply if Photonic Fleet is currently on cooldown.
    • Increased recharge reduction.
    • Every Science ability now reduces the cooldown of Photonic Fleet by 20 seconds.
    • If a Science Captain uses abilities perfectly, this can reduce Photonic Fleet's cooldown from 240sec to 80sec, increasing the uptime of Photonic Fleet from 25% to 75%.

UI:
  • The Duty Officer UI Overview page no longer incorrectly tells Romulans to go to Starfleet Academy or Earth Spacedock.
  • Resolved some issues in the Duty Officer UI for Romulans.
  • Journal images have been added for the new KDF episodes.
  • Changed the skill points available/spent part of the skillpicker UI to be simpler and cleaner.
    • This also eliminates an issue in which this UI could resize itself to be too tall vertically.
  • Added the description of Slipstream Drive to the throttle bar when the fast-forward button is Slipstream Drive.
  • Updated "ammo frame" for ground weapons like the plasma flamethrower to use the updated UI style.
  • Published Foundry Missions are no longer missing from the journal.
  • Resolved an issue where some UI elements would oscillate when scaled.

Can we get a little more info on these new costume options, are these totally new costumes or costume parts?. I would like to know if it is worth rerolling my Romulan to get the options or if I should just carry on and forget about it.

I'm happy to see that photonic fleet may now be worth using.

I hope the romulans can now properly train bridge officers.

Also, I am bit dissapointed that Go down fighting is still locked down at 50% health, while Miracle worker and Photonic fleet have no such restrictions.
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.

Nice patch.

My question is, are we going to get more free skins for playable ships? For example, Federation Light Cruisers have the Miranda, Centaur, and ShiKahr classes. But the Romulan Light Warbird only has one free skin (T'liss) and all you can change is the color.
Please fix the Foundry lag!

When you purchase or earn the premium Reman species, you get Reman variants of the Romulan Republic and Ally Faction uniforms as you progress. We've updated it so everyone will get them, though they will only be usable by Remans. This means even Romulan players will have Reman clothing options for their Reman bridge officers.

And my Fed still can't modify his expensive Romulan Embassy BOffs in the tailor. Nor can he FIX the faceless, torsoless one that was damaged via trading to train.

When is that going to get fixed?

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7, the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.

General:
  • The Aquarius Destroyer now has the Type 6 material option properly available.
And I just checked this: I cannot choose any other material than type 1. The Fleet, type 1-4, and type 6 are showing (where's the Veteran material, like I have on my Odyssey?) but I can only use the type 1.
