Starfleet Academy

Starfleet Academy was up on Tribble yesterday and is now live on Holodeck. Just warp to Earth and then you can beam down to San Francisco.

The map is gorgeous. There’s tailor, exchange, and mail services on the map right now. According to Dan Stahl (here) there are plans to use the map for a ground Fleet Action and as a starting zone for neighborhood missions. Eventually it will also be the starting point for the new tutorial.

Part of the fun when I was on Tribble last night was the party happening on the roof of Building Two. There’s a glitch where if you log out while standing on top of the plaque over looking San Francisco, then when you log back in you’re on the other side of the fence and can literally get behind the scenes. It takes a little running, but it’s possible to get around the edge of the map and up onto the roofs of the building.

    Fascinating pics. Good thing you’re doing that on the test server.

      It was interesting literally going behind the scenes as more walls aren’t textured on their backsides so they seem transparent. They got that issue patched pretty quickly I think.

    Now I’m going to have to go back to STO to check it out, lol. I haven’t played in a couple months so there’s probably a lot more than that I’m missing out on at the moment.
