A History Lesson

Darvus a posted Mar 11, 19

“Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the Senate, and of the House of Representatives:
Yesterday, December 7th, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.
Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya.
Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
Last night, Japanese forces attacked Guam.
Last night, Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.
Last night, the Japanese attacked Wake Island.
And this morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island.
Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.
As Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us.
No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.
I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.
Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.
With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph—so help us God.
I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.

STO Patch Notes 1-10-19

Darvus a posted Jan 13, 19


  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Discovery Klingons to not use modern torpedoes.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Type 7 Shuttle to not appear in the reclaim store.
  • The Borg engine attachment is now properly seated on the nacelle for the Dinaes Warbird Destroyer (T6)
  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Male Caitian Ears to clip through the Vedek Hood.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Duty Officer weekend to display on the Calendar.


  • Captains can now access and begin playing the first episode in any story arc.
  • The Crystalline Entity TFO has been updated with various changes to match the Event version:
    • There is now a 30 second Mission Briefing time before the TFO begins.
      • This allows players time to join the TFO and read the briefing if necessary, before taking on the Entity.
    • The Entity shards that it deploys are now immune to control effects.
    • Small Shards will no longer buff the Entity’s damage for the entire TFO.
      • Instead, they will give the entity buff stacks towards a more powerful Energy Release after its Absorption Phase.
      • This change results in a potentially stronger Energy Release attack.
      • In response to that, we’ve added a growing AoE indicator to show the area of the Energy Release and how long it will be before it goes off.
    • The Energy Release attack no longer is guaranteed to hit if caught in the AoE indicator when it releases, allowing players to outrun the blast if fast enough.
    • The Entity Beam attacks no longer apply a Flight Speed debuff to players.
      • Instead, Large Shards on Advanced Difficulties will apply a Flight Speed debuff if they are able to explode on a player.
    • The Entity is now entirely immune to damage while in its Absorption Phase.
      • We wanted this phase to be about avoiding the Energy Release and preventing the shards from buffing the attack.
    • The Entity Absorption Phase is now 15 seconds long rather than 30 seconds.
      • This was the case on advanced versions of the queue but is now in parity with Normal.
    • Once the Entity has been destroyed it will explode into many Small Salvageable Crystal Fragments, these fragments can be destroyed to gain 1-5 Salvage from each of them.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing enemies in the TFO, “Tzenkethi Front” to not appear with a bombs needed to complete the mission objectives.
  • Tzenkethi Battlezone has received several updates:
    • Increased timer for area reset from 10 minutes to 15 minutes.
    • Adjusted waypoints for blockade arrays so that they match the centers of the array areas as closely as possible.
    • Resolved an issue that could cause problems with the display of various area control UI on the overhead map.
    • Resolved an issue that caused the asteroid towing game UI to show score from 0-10 instead of 0-3.

  • Resolved an issue during the Discovery Era Tutorial that could sometimes block progression when breaching the Engineering room.

  • Resolved an issue that prevented the “Yesterday’s War” accolade from completing.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented KDF Captains from accessing “Spectres” and “Lost Dominion” missions.

  • Resolved an issue that prevented FED Aligned Romulans from taking the shuttle to Starfleet Academy on ESD.
  • Resolved an issue where certain NPC’s would use Discovery Era Phaser Rifles.
  • There is now no limit to the number of flashlights you can own, but you can only have one equipped at a time during Starbase Incursion TFO.

  • Reputation Donation UI has been updated to provide a cleaner more efficient user experience.
    • Streamlined UI for quicker access to Reputation projects.
    • “Fill All” button added to allow quicker contributions.
