Well I must admit it does look much nicer than the 2409 Uniforms. I might even change me and my crew out of our TNG Film/ late DS9 unforms.
every Starfleet NPC in the game will be wearing the new uniforms (yes even the mission givers)
Odyssey Tactical Uniform (also includes panel pockets on the trousers)
Odyssey Dress Uniform
Season 9.5 releases today,big long patch notes!

I quite like the changes to DOFF assignments, it seems to pick suitable officers a lot better. The new R&D system is nice and streamlined, but does seem heavily based on Neverwinter's system (lots of time gating). Quite glad I've crafted three sets of Aegis before the changes, I think it'll take a lot longer now.
Best thing is that R&D materials have their own tab in the inventory, so no more having crafting materials filling up all your inventory slots.
Just like on TV. I do like that.
And due to being offline for ages and ages I only just played "Surface Tension" last night. Really awesome!!

Tim Russ will return as Tuvok. Several more Voyager cast will be joining. Garret Wang the next confirmed actor reprising his role as Harry Kim.
Harry Kim will be captain of the Rhode Island.
Talaxians and Ocampans will be allies, unsure if they will be playable right now.
Oooh sounds pretty awesome!
I hope fleet admiral turns up one of these days as I still have a dock chock full of serviceable starships that I want to be able to use.
Fleet Admiral is lvl 60,though there won't be anything that gives you extra ships but it's something the developers want to do further down the road.

Cool and I hope it finally arrives one day.
I do hope they don't charge for the proper Intrepid bridge, thoguh only because I will pay almost any amount for it. Well, a tenner or so, which is still more than a reasonable person would pay. But I would.
and another piece of news the Cardassian Alliance will become a playable faction,but won't be until 2015.
btw ESA peeps, dilithium mine 2 upgrade project is up (needs fleet marks and dilithium mine tokens mainly) and hopefully the Spire 2 upgrade will start late tomorrow (have a load of dilithium saved up but I think it needs ~1m).
The mine upgrade gets us daily dilithium mining (along with +5% dil discount project), while the spire upgrade gets us fleet veteran ships (as well as some other stuff).
I'll add what I can.

They've improved the scaleability of the graphics engine a bit. You can now run the ui at your screens native res but scale down the rest to suit your gpu.
I don't think the min requirements have changed at all.

Must get some STO on this weekend I think, been far too long.
I forgot to say, I took all the crafting stuff out the Fleet Bank to convert it to the new stuff so it takes up less room. This makes it look like I've committed a massive theft from the Fleet Bank and felt the need to return random other stuff, but it's just the same stuff converted to the new system. Honest, guvna!
Tier 6 starship info
Edited by Ranger_Ryu at 21:54:02 26-08-2014
Interesting. But does this makes all tier 5 ships instantly obsolete?
there's meant to be some sort of upgrade program but they haven't revealed what it entails oh and here's the official trailer for delta rising,including three tier 6 starships
Ok fair enough.
