Captain's Log, Weekly Digest 16

A summary of the past week of posts to my in-character Star Trek Online Tumblr, chronicling the adventures of E.N. Morwen, a science-loving and thoughtful young woman trapped in a galaxy of warring space giants.

  • Crack in the Mirror: In which Deep Space Nine is occupied by duplicates of Starfleet officers. Again.
  • Obrom System Patrol: In which the True Way attempt a multi-pronged attack.
  • The New Link: In which the Phoenix goes looking for an Alpha Jem’Hadar stronghold, and finds something rather more.
  • Aokii System Patrol: In which the Phoenix and Defiant lead a fleet to destroy the main True Way ship repair facility.
  • Seeds of Dissent: In which the True Way is a little less defeated than previously thought.
  • The Other Side: In which Morwen leads the 147th into the Mirror Universe.
  • Cage of Fire: In which an old cult rears anew.
  • Second Wave: In which Morwen attends a conference between Alpha Quadrant powers about the Borg problem.

As the flag officer of a fleet or tactical group, Starfleet regulations also require Morwen to provide a Fleet Status Report briefly summarizing the current status and mission of all ships under her command, every Stardate that’s a multiple of 10.
Also, I am recruiting to found a new fleet (the STO equivalent to a guild), dedicated to roleplay and crossovers between people’s characters. Any Fed-aligned roleplayers welcome! Tentative premise is exploring the fact that we’ve pretty much all done the same story missions at different times, implying some weird temporal or parallel-universe shenanigans for us to investigate.
I have finished the game’s main story. I’m still finishing up the Rep missions, which will be inserted into the story as appropriate, but they’re well off in the distance. I think it’ll be okay timing-wise.
Next month the game is doing something called “Delta Recruits.” Based on what they’re saying, it sounds like it’s mostly a way for new players to catch up to established players quickly, but it’s also got a lot of incentive for people to make alts during that time. I’m probably going to make one per faction. Depending on what happens, I may or may not cross the Fed one with Morwen. The Romulan and Klingon alts I have… other plans for.

  1. The bit of the regular blurb that says “I have finished the game’s main story” might need updating to reflect the fact that new stuff will, from time to time, be appended to the main story.

    • That’s a very good point. “I have finished the game’s main story content released to date would be more accurate.
