Star Trek Online is a complex game with many different aspects. We've covered the basics already but there there are some topics that deserve more in-depth guides and explorations to answer deeper questions, whether that's ...

If those are topics that interest you, then check out the resources linked above! Below we've also listed out the most crucial explorations off-site that have contributed to our collective knowledge of mechanics and in-game systems.

Revisiting Exotics

This ongoing series dives deep into the mathematical underpinnings of exotic particle generator (EPG)-focused builds. If you're into space wizardry and want to really know how it all works, this is THE definitive series on exotic mechanics. 

Initial Post in the series; introduces the series and derives equations for secondary deflectors

Finesses Jay's early work to bring to modern calculation standards, and serves as an resurrection of the topic

Corrections to Equations in #2

Temporal, Anomalies, and Everything Else

Release of the New Exotic Calculator, since replaced by TRINITY, and temporal formula derivation

Javascript Exotic Calculator by Tilor, since replaced by TRINITY

Corrections to Equations in #4/5, fixing some weird aux power things

Spore Infused Anomalies vs Electrified Anomalies, as well as VCIS, DOC, Boimler DOff, and Torpedoes
