Season 11 in Star Trek Online gave us an “Admiralty” system. It’s an equivalent of duty-officer system, except, the players get to use their ships for the ‘assignments’. 1,549 more words
Jan touched on a number of issues I agree with, but my assessment of the system rates it a little higher - perhaps 7/10. The problem I have is finding the right context in which to give my opinion. I'm a ship collector with multiple alts - as such my average toon has 40+ ships each. My KDF and ROM alts suffer from the lack of science ships - I even went back and purchased the Dyson ships to help pad this out. Looking back on that purchase I realize that most players make do with far less in terms of ships. Even with the purchase (15K Zen), I struggle to assemble missions at the rate my fed alts enjoy. There's no easy way around it - Feds have the advantage. Science discrepancy aside, I'm loving the rewards. The number of specialization points I've generated form a simple 5 minutes a day effort has been a real boon to my alts. Leveling from 50-60 just got a lot easier. I can forsee a day when we can buy packs of ships to help out the admiralty system. There will certainly be rewards in the game where we will get these cards. I could even see a day when we could 'trade cards' with other factions - call on a Klingon friend for some assistance, or vice versa. Great Post!
