Ready for Battle | STOked 104

Star Trek Online’s next featured episode series gets a release date that’s close on the heels of the January F2P launch. Early hype indicates that it will be the best FE series to date!

Chris takes some time to explain the style in which STOked is delivered and why it should not be confused with the intent behind the weekly production of the podcast. We also cover some new skill UI changes, an update to the purpose of the Red Alert chat channel, some new artwork on ESD and go on a deep dive through the newly revamped Special Task Force mission, Infected.

The new Advanced Combat Tactics (A.C.T.) segment debuts this week and promises to be a great companion for new and established players alike.
