Returning player / version question

I’m looking at returning to the game again and I also just got a PS4 how is the game on console? Controller would be better for me as my hands tend to ache/cramp quite easily using keyboards lately but I have invested a moderate amount into pc acc

The 8 and 8b Material: are there more than just the TWoK era ships that can use it?

I ask this because I bought the starter pack on my AoD and I noticed that the Walker class can use 8 & 8b. Since the TOS movie ships and aesthetic is my favorite in regards to Star Trek, I was wondering if there are other newly introduced ships t

I played a round of Borg Disconnected Advanced tonight and it seemed that I was the only one engaging any enemies, the other people didn't even stop to to help me or anything. I've played BC a few times before not a whole lot but I never experienced


Tortured Souls as Carrier pets?

Well we have the Kar'fi carrier in the game, and with rumours of a Fek'Ihri ship being this years Winter event ship I thought I would just throw it out there: I would love to see a "Tortured Soul" carrier pet added to the game, that I could launch f


Can we have the classic warp-out sfx back, please??

Instead of more mini factions, how about revisiting the Big Three?

We've got 23c Fed, the Jem'Hadar, and now Discovery Fed. Mini-factions seem to be the future but I was thinking it would be fun to add in some faction revamps while we're at it. It would be great for existing players to get some QoL fixes and additio


PS4 - Age of Discovery Update has locked out missions

The new update on PS4 has locked out previously completed missions, so I am unable to grind for sets. Edit: also I am unable to further episode progression past Strange New Worlds. Anything past the Iconian War has been locked out due to the new con


[PC]The rubberbanding is even in both Solanae Dyson space BZs(and probably ground)?!

Really?! Devs, I'm hoping this gets fixed in a decent time frame...It's Killing the GAME!! Is this getting worse than the problems that Delta had when released? Paging /u/ambassadorkael....

Tovan Khev...

Cloak still bugged?

From researching about 3 years of posts I’ve been seeing this bug with people being stuck in cloak and unable to de-cloak. It seems to have gotten worse in the recent year after some patches. The most recent info I’m seeing is 2-3 months old.


Using cruisers when I am kitted for cannons
