It’s been a long time without new posts! But with the new influx of missions on the official forums, this post will cover the last few months of new missions posted there!

Starfleet Missions

“Uncharted Worlds 4”
by @patcrow
Any Level

In this mission, you are asked to investigate an unexplored star system in the process of forming and a mystery rogue planet which doesn’t belong. What is this planet and where did it come from?



“Attention to Orders”
by @yellowsunwarror
Any Level

Starfleet tradition dictates that a Captain attend the commissioning ceremony of any new ship they are to command. An old friend will be facilitating the commissioning of your latest starship, but old friends sometimes open old wounds.



“In the name of the People”
By @evil70th
Level 16+

You and the valiant crew of your ship saved the New Montgomery colony from certain annihilation. The outbreak that turned the colonists into violent creatures was just a prelude to what appears to be the early stages of a threat to the Federation from within.

by @midnighttlc
Level 41+

Your mission is to apprehend Mirror Admiral Aaron at all costs and discover who or what is pulling the strings behind this nightmare inducing mission.



“Deus In Machina”
by @Thomas_Baston
Level 46+

The U.S.S. Ophion has gone missing on a xenological survey in the Hromi Cluster. Can you find her? And What will you find when you do?



“Omnitabula: Threshold”
by @starfarertheta
Level 51+

The informally self-labeled Task Force Impromptu is now effectively distanced from any help within the Deadzone. With no way out for the next decade, only one mission remains: finding Xausea, the homeworld whence the Omnitabula was made. There lies a potential wealth of knowledge the equal of the Preserver Archives, and a small hope of a way home.



“A Past Forgotten”
by @Gromio
Level 50+

An ancient terror waits in the darkness of space, long ago passing into legends and myth… Now when your allies call for aid, you will discover that darkest of secrets, are not meant to be lost. From the shadows a new; yet familiar foe has set their schemes into motion; searching for a power they believe would make them invincible.

Today is kinda a big deal day in the Star Trek Online foundry universe. While most of us are reeling from the all too soon loss of Mr. Leonard Nimoy, it was announced this afternoon that we will be getting a great big update to how the sectors in Star Trek Online work. Now we need that the walls were coming down between worlds, but we hadnt really gotten a look at the shape of this. And now as of the blog released today, we have, and it is glorious. And here it is:

What does this mean for us? Two things, firstly we are getting a number of CANON PLANETS added and most especially added as doors. What it also means is that they are rearranging the galaxy to move things to a more canonical location. So smirk also posted this: asking that anyone who needs to rearrange the wording on their missions, to get with him so that this can be arranged for when this goes live

Update 2/12/2015

The editor is back online with the completed maintenance today




As many of you have no doubt already noticed, with the release of all the goodies for the 5th anniversary, the editor is offline. All missions are presently republishing, and the reason, per Reddit:

Yep! Couldn’t Tweet the response because it was too lengthy.

ELI5 version:

Basically features like this one cause a change to the version number on related maps. Changes in version number require republishing, because a change in that number could signify a restructuring of the data, for instance.

After Season 4, we implemented functionality: the Foundry editor automatically locks itself when a mass republish is triggered. This is useful for so many reasons. I can elaborate, but won’t right now. So if there’s a mass republish, the editor will be disabled.

Hope that helps a little. 🙂

So now we wait, I guess we can like, play the game or something, right?

From Star Trek Online:

“The Foundry Top 3 System is a new way for players to play User Generated Content (UGC), and will be available to players in sector space. The goal of this system is to make sector space feel more alive as players will be able to explore and find new missions throughout the sector.

When at a point of interest in sector space such as a planet, up to three UGC missions will be available at the “door” to that point of interest.
You won’t see any missions for which you don’t qualify to play because of race or level restrictions.

Missions that need review will not available through the Foundry Top 3 System. The list of missions is the same for all players (assuming identical allegiance and level) and will be refreshed with a new set of missions every few hours. The ones you will see, however, are missions that have been highly rated by other players.

The list of Top 3 UGC missions will appear just below any other missions available to you at that location. Click on one of these UGC missions, and the UGC mission info window will appear. If you choose to accept the mission, it will be added to your Journal.”

Basically this only applies to missions that have space doors, and at this moment it is unknown if any of the systems that don’t presently have doors on them will, such as Earth.

*Edit 1/22/15*
Salami Inferno was kind enough to pop into a thread created over on STO’s reddit and answer some questions offered up, his comments are in bold: continue reading…

We’re back with an additional new host and a new look. Same old format. We review

Shore Leave Under Siege by JohnnySnowball.



It looks like the switch was thrown late tonight to allow players to review (and tip) foundry missions again. We have achieved normality, I repeat we have normality, anything else is your own problem

5 points to Stabbendor for the one who gets that 🙂

Cryptic within the last few moments reenabled the editor for your pleasure.

The republish of foundry spotlights is complete, we can now begin testing to see if there are any greater issues! Plus you can do the IOR 😉
