Season 2: Ancient Enemies is LIVE
Spoiler:

New Recruit-A-Friend Program

Details:

Once your friend has purchased Star Trek Online, you’ll receive a brand new title – Courier – as well as an exclusive Holographic Tribble Pet! What’s more, you both can enjoy:

* A special power to instantly travel to your friend (first 30 days).
* A 5% Captain and Officer skill point bonus when you’re teamed up (first 15 days).
* A 5% damage bonus when you’re teamed up (first 15 days).


Once your recruit has subscribed to the game for a month, you’ll earn:

* A new title: Recruiter.
* An exclusive Holographic Bridge Officer (works with Federation and Klingon players).
* 400 Cryptic Points.

For each additional recruit that subscribes to the game, you’ll receive an additional 400 Cryptic Points. Once you’ve recruited five subscribers, you’ll receive these great rewards:

* A new title: Master Recruiter
* A special ship: The Tier 5 "All Good Things" Galaxy Class.


Upcoming Changes

Taken from The Season 2 state of the game update:
Everything Coming Soon (That Isn’t Part of Season 2)

You may have already seen it in d Stahl’s engineering reports, but we have a lot of great things coming in the next several months:

* The Accolade System – I know how much you guys have been wanting this, and I have to admit, I’m pretty stoked about it, too. Track your achievements. How much phaser damage have you dealt in your career? How many Federation officers have you shuffled off this mortal coil (assuming you’re playing a Klingon. No killing your allies, guys!)?
* The Squad System – This will let you team up with other players who aren’t in your level, and lets your effectiveness match so you can play together.
* Balance Adjustments – We have those DPS/recharge/global-ability-cooldown adjustments that many of our high-end players have been requesting. Log into Tribble and check them out. Give us your feedback! We’re testing it out now, so this is when we need to hear from you the most. Also – don’t forget to log into Tribble to “play with the devs” early next week. We’ll be there, will you?
* UI Improvements – We’re working on a window that will show you when rewards happen during normal character advancement (powers, unlocks, bridge officer reqs, etc.).
* Bug Fixes and Improvements – We’re always working on fixes and improvements, because a game developer’s job is never done.

But I’m betting a lot of you know this already, because you all read dStahl’s engineering reports, right?

Just so you know, though, we’re going to have to put out those reports without dStahl’s help for a little while, since he’s off becoming a dad right now.
Season 2

Season 2 is nearly upon us, and we’ve been working on a ton of content for that release:

* Minigames – Yes, ThomastheCat, there really is a Santa Claus. Or, at least, there really will be minigames in STO. As of update 1.3, you’ll be able to play Dabo at Quark’s. And we’ll be adding several more minigames throughout your ship and the galaxy in Season 2. There’s a great thread about minigames on the forums. Jump on board and chime in!
* Federation Diplomatic Corps – Federation players will be able to focus more on non-combat content and gain rank within the Diplomatic Corps. There are some very cool rewards in there, and some new diplomatic/exploration Episodes and missions. In fact, I played through a new “First Contact” scenario yesterday …We see a lot of potential for future diplomatic updates.
* Faction Free Episodes –The majority of Episodic content we’re adding to STO will be faction-agnostic. Both Klingon and Federation captains will be able to play through this content (although, probably not together – unless you really want to). The Breen Episodes and the high-end episodes in fluidic space will be available to Klingons.
* Klingon Exclusive Episodes - Because everyone loves Klingons, right? Season 2 has several Episodes just for Klingons. (The Fek’Lhri are scary, but I so want to fly one of their ships …)
* Bumping the Cap – We’re moving the cap up 6 grades to Vice Admiral 1. There will be more rewards and more content for those of you up at the end of the game.
* Ship Interiors – I have walked the curved hallways of my crew deck on the way to MY ten-forward …
* Weekly Content – We’re looking to start rolling out an Episode every week. Like a “STO Tuesdays” sorta thing (it may even happen on Tuesdays, but no promises on that one). We’ll start rolling out weekly Episodes after Season 2 goes live.
* Fleet Logos, High End Content, and Beyond … all before the end of July.

Spoiler:

Ship Info

Cruisers: Designed to be played by circling your enemy. These have a slow turn rate and are intended to be used as "tanks" and damage soakers. The common consensus seems to be that players should stick with beam arrays -- this will give them the largest firing arcs and weapon overlap as they circle their enemy.

Escorts: Designed to be played as a "hit and fade" style of attack. These are very fast and maneuverable ships. They are intended to make multiple passes on their target, unloading all the firepower they can on each successive pass. They have the lowest crew population and the smallest shields. This means they have lower survivability and low repair rates. They must rely on other ships to soak the damage and repair them when necessary.

Science Vessels: These ships are intended to be support ships on the battlefield. They have some incredibly strong buffs and debuffs at their disposal. They are also fairly maneuverable, although not as much as the escorts. They have the smallest amount of weapon slots and their primary strength lies in the usage of their abilities, not in their phaser banks or torpedoes.


The Borg are Scary
(Upcoming content additions)

New missions for the 41+ crowd:
The Hive Mind Is Everywhere

The Borg are invading! Just in time for many of you to reach the rank of Admiral, we've got three new high-level Episodes centered around the classic Alpha Quadrant menace, the Borg. Here's what you can expect:

* Collateral Damage - Help save civilians caught in a battle between the Borg and Undine.
* Recovery - In this follow-up to Collateral Damage, Rescue colonists infected by the Borg virus and fight Undine determined to destroy them!
* State of Q - Q transports you back in time to do him a special favor.
* More to come!
Raid Episodes Coming Your Way

If you're looking for a challenge, look no further than our upcoming Raid Episodes, which combine bold storytelling with our toughest five-man missions yet. These are just a few of the Raid Episodes we'll be rolling out over the coming weeks, beginning a week after launch. Raid Episodes are available to both Federation and Klingon players.

* Infected - Investigate a federation station that Starfleet has lost contact with.
* The Cure - A planet has been completely taken over by the Borg. Fight them for control of the planet.
* Khitomer Accord - Travel back in time and uncover and participate in the events that led to the release of old Borg you encountered in the Tutorial Episode.
* Into the Hive - Track down a missing Starfleet captain and come face to face with the new Borg Queen.

    I just found this site, and the layout is great to find out which system improves which ability when you're not in-game. Also, when you click on a skill, It lists the entire set of abilities modified by it. I admit, I haven't looked at the rest of the site yet, but so far it looks decent.

    http://www.trekdb.com/


    Edit: It doesn't seem entirely complete yet. For example, Photonic theory isn't listed in the Starship operations section, but Photonic officer is listed in the BO abilities, and it links to Photonic theory. So be wary.

    Yeah, I saw your link to that site in the previous thread. I've already added it to the OP. The site looks very well laid out and it will probably be one of the best resources once they get more info on there.

    I really don't know how I manage to avoid shock sites. I didn't even know they existed until my friend told me about them. back on topic though, does it make a whole lot of difference where you put your skill points into in the beginning of the game? I'm not very far in at all, but I don't want to completely fudge my character either. I am a science officer if that matters.

    I loaded up my Liberated Borg alt today to try to get some levels on her. Its been over a week since the last time I played her. Going from my very maneuverable science ship back to the light cruiser is painful. I'm planning on going Escorts with this character so I just need to power my way to 11, but its really hard to stay focused in such a bad ship.

    And I'm definitely not looking forward to doing this a third time for my new Eng Officer I made last night.

    Someone suggested that you do a funds transfer and then buy a Runabout and do levels 1-10 in a Runabout. That's my current plan for my next run through. I don't know if you can make it all the way up to 10 in a Runabout, but it should make things interesting to try.

    I saw another suggestion to try playing with the Miranda, but without shields, so that's another possibility for making things more interesting.

    Sadly, I canceled my account today. I pretty much expect this to be a one month long game. But it's still a disappointment. I really wanted to like the game more than I did, and I think I'll still play until my account runs out, maybe a bit. But like I've said before, I have the same complaints about this as I have with all cryptic games, and I think this will be the last Cryptic game I buy. Sad, really.

    It's an easy conclusion to jump to. I mean, sum up the ship classes:
    Cruiser: You move slow as hell, turn like a greased walrus, and take forever to kill or be killed.
    Science: You do sciencey stuff. Like scan shields or do sensor sweeps.
    Escort: PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW *BOOM* <- half of the time that boom is you.

    I know which sounds fun to me.

    I'm curious though, how would a Tac officer pair up with a science vessel? I think that's going to be my next character, once I get bored of my Science/Escort.

    Is it true that science is the least played? I would have guessed it was the most played, or second most. Everyone's always talking about their ballships and such, myself included. and I'm sure escorts are indeed the most common, but you'd think there were none at all, considering how overflowing the market is with cannons.
