Welcome to “Joe and STO” (pronounced like “Joe and Stow.”). I’m a casual player. I have over 8 years’ experience inside Star Trek Online and have little to no in-depth understanding of the game, but I fly starships and have fun doing it. Here, you can expect as casual a perspective as I can give on hot-button topics in the community; showing off ships, gear, even item acquisition progress; and perhaps posting build advice here and there for the new or returning STO player. And if I start streaming, you may see links to videos pop up, as well. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe to get updates to this blog. But overall, enjoy and I hope you get a valuable perspective on this game from Cryptic and Perfect World Entertainment.
