    Thread: Star Trek Beyond Trailer
Post: RE: Star Trek Beyond Trailer

Have to say, I did not like IV, not because it was a bad movie but because I don't want space stories set on earth. As for the new movies, I enjoyed them, but I agree they don't really feel like Star...

    Thread: STO Academy Armada
Post: RE: STO Academy Armada

I like the idea of the armada but ultimately it won't solve the contribution issues that fleets have always had.  The fleet marks will still fill up instantly and the dilithium/doff requirements will ...

Post: RE: New fleet holding coming soon!

Well, given I have about 30000 fleet marks laying around I don't mind seeing this.  Maybe, just maybe I'll get a chance to spend some of them!

Post: RE: Fleet Private STF wait times.

Trying to find 5 from fleet chat can be challenging for sure.  It's simply a numbers game.  When I'm online there are usually about 20-25 people online in chat.  Of those you have to assume 3/4 are cu...

I find that of all of these the Borg Red Alert has the largest variance.  I can get as little as 2-3k and as much as 15k.  It all depends on luck.  For a high dps ship it only takes a matter of a minu...
