That's something else I was in the midst of figuring out when my desktop computer farked up on me: how to assign specific duties to each of my bridge officers. If I'm not mistaken, you're supposed to be able to designate a pilot, security officer, etc., but I never figured out how.

It's in the "Officers/ship" screen. You can assign bridge officers to specific posts, but not duty officers. They represent the "lower decks".

They can be sent on missions that increase your scores in various subjects, which unlocks missions in those areas (such as First Contacts for those with high Diplomacy scores).

Whoops! I'm wrong. It's under the "Assignments" tab.

I'll be posting a couple of pictures shortly.

Amy takes a moment to show some love to Max, her pet Tribble:

She's not a Nottingham, but she's pretty:

Contemplating the Infinite...

Image

Our intrepid admiral takes a moment to relax in the ship's lounge (which I have yet to name):

Image

This is actually very close to my image of a Nottingham class bridge. It's the Diplomat series bridge:

Image

And it's not Christmas without snow (at least to Amy). Here she watches the ice track races in Q's Winter Wonderland:

Image

(I upped the brightness on all of these. They're a bit on the dark side, normally.)

Last I was in the game, I know you could select certain officers as your security officer, science officer, and engineer for space combat and such, in the same manner as you could select a science officer, security officer, and engineer for your away team for ground missions. What I'm talking about is being able to designate who is your Executive Officer, Conn Officer, Chief Medical Officer, etc. I'd read somewhere on the forums they were supposed to be enabling players to do that, but either they hadn't when I was forced to stop playing or I hadn't figured out how to do it.

And that's not a bad bridge. Whenever I get back into the game, I'll have to get a wide view of all my bridges...

Yeah, it's in the "Assignments" area under the "Department Heads" tab.

And thanks!

Well, my 15-day Buddy Invite ran out, so I ponied up the $14.99 for a retail license key and 30 days of play, which should bring me close to the F2P launch on Jan. 17. Fortunately, the friend who rebuilt my desktop after its unfortunate motherboard crash gave me the cash as a Christmas present.

It unlocked a few goodies. 4 new bridge officer slots (so there aren't 4 copies of each of my department heads on the bridge - THEY'RE CLONES, I TELL YOU! CLONES!), the ability to change from NCC to NX registry, the KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN! emote (I'll have to take a pic of that), and this...

Image

Since Amy was at DS-9 anyway, she stopped into the tailor's shop and had Garak's successor whip her up something a bit more comfortable, for off-duty wear.

Oh, and I also bought the open collar option, and I'll be buying the Jupiter style uniforms as soon as I can refine enough dilithium to trade for some Cryptic points.

Wow dude, You should really try upping your display settings. The game is SO pretty on higher resolutions and texture settings.

I play it in my primary monitor's native 1600 x 900 resolution and color depth. Increasing the brightness of the screenshot is what washes it out.

The last image was resized by Photobucket when I upped the brightness.

Oh it's not the washout I'm talking about. I can tell it's brighter. But upping the brightness won't diminish the textures/anti-aliasing. I can tell by the blurriness of your uniform, poly-edges on your hair, and the background angles.

I suggest you check your in-game video settings and set most everything(except Bloom) up higher. Especially Anti Aliasing and textures/models. You will be amazed at how pretty this game can be on highest settings.

Well, I have an older video card, so I need to keep most of the settings down a bit. I'll be replacing it in a few months. I'll try, but I suspect it'll kick my current card's azz...

Precisely why I can't play it on my laptop. I have a dual core processor on it, but the graphics card is too old (and this lappy is only 4).

I'm about to post some images, so you'll see what I mean... I've been meaning to do this anyway.
