Star Trek Online tucks advanced starships into console crafting packs

hold me
The 23rd, 24th, and 25th centuries are so yesterday’s Enterprise — why not jump into the further future with a 26th century cruiser in Star Trek Online?

Console players have a roundabout way of securing one of the newer 26th century dreadnought ships by purchasing one (or many more) R&D packs from the game store. In addition to giving players crafting materials, these packs have a chance of dropping a Universe-class starship, (Federation), a Durgath Temporal Heavy Dreadnought battlecruiser (Klingon), or a Valkis Temporal Heavy Dreadnought warbird (Romulan).

The console edition got a small patch yesterday that liberated captains who found themselves marooned on Nimbus.

Everytime I am orbiting a starbase and look at the vast number and variety of ships around me I think to myself, “Man, those Star Citizen ship-buyers are really getting ripped off…”

The Enterprise-J really is a hideous ship! It’s almost two dimensional with almost no depth, a massive flat ellipse for a saucer and pathetically spindly warp nacelles and struts.

I really hate what PWE did to this game. Its really awful how the whole game is about lockboxes. You want a good ship open your wallet.

Yeah, really not sure what PWE thought they were getting when they bought Cryptic.

First I will never purchase something I do not physically own. Such as a copy of a game, regardless of its EULA BS. Online Copyright protection equals a no sale.

Second, the gambling boxes of any type are something that should be outlawed by law.

Finally, the J series Starship is one FUGLY ship.

You don’t own anything digital, regardless of whether it came on a disc or on a download. Or on a floppy.

You’d think there would be a really hot market for 3D printing ships and avatars. I know it is possible in some games, but you would think that would be a hot commodity. I can think of half a dozen games where I’d love a 6″ – 12″ doll of my character that was nicely detailed.

Cryptic had a deal with a company to sell 3d printed ships, but it fell through.
