The site has been inactive for a while, I know, but my interest in Star Trek Online has been renewed. I’ve finally hit level 60 (the grind is what discouraged me from playing for a while) and have begun upgrading my gear to MK XIV. I’ve got a couple fully leveled T6 ships, and several fully leveled T5U ships. Also, I’m almost to T5 in the Delta Reputation. (I’m already T5 in all the other reps.)

I’m looking forward STO’s 5th Anniversary, and the new stuff it’ll bring.

If you’ve ever taken a good look at the underside of the USS Voyager’s saucer section, you’ve probably noticed the spaceship-shaped outline at its center. Like the Captain’s Yacht located on the underside of the Enterprise-D saucer that was never seen on-screen, this spaceship-shape was meant to be a ship used in the show. For whatever reason, most likely budgetary, the USS Voyager’s Aero shuttle was never used. Instead, the Delta Flyer was introduced. Now, thanks to Star Trek Online, Voyager’s Aero Shuttle is finally getting its due.


“Console – Universal – Aero Shuttle Bay

The Pathfinder Long Range Science Vessel comes equipped with an Aero Shuttle Bay universal console, allowing the science vessel to deploy a useful support craft to aid the starship in combat. The Aero Shuttle provides support with offensive science abilities and is equipped with special phaser beam arrays that have a greater chance to knock the target’s subsystems offline.

This unique console may be equipped in any console slot on any Long Range Science Vessel variant.”

Excerpt :

[Taken lovingly from the TNG episode, “Conspiracy,” the Bluegill is this little, semi-cute alien that invades people’s bodies, taking over their thoughts and granting them enhanced strength and resilience. Later in the episode, a defeated foe gurgles back to life and reveals a much less cute larval version of the alien. Captain Picard and Riker then light it up with phasers, thus ensuring the Bluegills can do no further damage to the Enterprise or the Federation.]
