Ice And Fire In The Final Frontier


Someone got a new skin today


E-credits as new player? (not asking about farming)

Totally new player here - So I just started as a discovery captain and completed all the missions up until I get to travel through time. As soon as I got to the spacestation I went to try and get some kits for ground combat and realized I have....0 c


Just opened 180 pheonix boxes (XboxOne)

Got exactly zero epic or ultra rare tokens. Ugh. What a waste.


We're Bringing STO's Tribbles to Life!


If the Alliance is fully sharing technology can we get Quad Cannons in the reclaim tab?

This has been a long standing request and would be an "easy win" for Cryptic. It might even drive some extra sales of the T5 Tac Escort, Ning'tao and Ar'kala. More tools for more energy types is always a good thing.


STO Tzenkethi ship designs coming to Star Trek Adventures


How about a Phoenix Box trade up mechanic?

Something I was thinking about... Right now, we can trade down at a 2 for 1 ratio. But what if we could go up, but say at 10 to 1? Gives everyone a second path to epic tokens, but with a legit choice of giving up the Phoenix upgrade box at the lower


Where are the old DS9 and TOS packs?

Where are the old DS9 and TOS packs you once purchased? I can’t find it anywhere in the new layout in the zen store. It’s like they removed it... I want it back .. my future DS9 toon need those special DS9 items it contained. What the heck? Edit


I looted Ferengi and gold-plated my ship, enjoy the view :)

About the Fleet Ship Modules.

Please make it so that you can upgrade the T6 temporal Science Vessel and destroyer from the Infinity Box, similar to the risian corvette, to a fitting standard! Make the Science vessel fully Temp Specced as its fleet version and the Temporal Destroy


Discovery uniform colours

Does anyone have an accurate guide to the Discovery uniforms? The "official" guide colours don't match up to the ingame colours. ​ The white Medical ones are the worst, where the guide colours are actually *green* ingame.


The Allied Cooperative Starship Development Board


I was drawing this ship here in class. It's still a work in progress.


The gold floater & board for winning the biathalon should be impulsive and epic quality

This is by far the most difficult reward to unlock during the summer event and requires either already owning an impulsive floater & board or having very very good flying & surfing skills. And the reward is... the opportunity to pay full pric


Super noob to events here, help with the Risa T6 corvette!

40 vouchers every 20 hours according to the event coordinator, is there a faster way to get the event ship? Pardon my noobness.

What’s the hardest tfo you’ve been in, either by any reason, like other players not doing what they need to, being unequipped, or just a stupidly hard tfo, etc.


Best t6 ship to buy?

I was thinking of getting the Buran Command Dreadnought, or just the plain Yamato Dreadnought, opinions?


New to STO. Maxed my first character, where do I go from here?

I’m still doing the rest of the missions/expansions but I was curious as far as my ship and how to get it to it’s full potential with sets. I’m flying the galaxy class exploration cruiser refit and I’m not sure what sets go good with that or


Real Talk; What Happens to the Legendary Warrior Once The War is Over?

I had a very interesting debate on Discord today. Setting game mechanics aside, we looked at the PC character in Star Trek Online from an in-canon lore perspective. The results were both fascinating, and a bit disturbing. Here we have an individual,


New player wanting to play carriers.

So I have recently gotten back into playing STO after years and when I stopped I barely played. I now see that there are carriers in the game and would like some help in learning the game and getting upto carriers and what is best for them. If anyone
