Star Trek Edition: What Really Grinds Your Gears?

Welcome to our – ‘What Really Grinds Your Gears?’ post – come and share ‘What Really Grinds Your Gears’ with the FG: Tips team!

Lots of events and content updates have been bombarding us all lately, so there must be something that has ground your gears to dust at some point!

We have been playing the Star Trek update for almost a week now, has there been anything in particular that has almost made you tap that uninstall button?!

We would really like to hear what was grinding your gears – is it having to wait the same build time as the original build time when moving a room? Is it not knowing what is happening with the Tribbles? Some players have them, some don’t – are they meant to disappear or always stick around, who knows?! Whatever it is, we would love to hear what has been grinding your gears in the last week!

  1. #$%#$%!@ game keeps FREEZING and now I lost a pile of clams when changing rooms on the ship because it froze and now I bought a stupid McBurgertown room that I didn’t want and it didn’t confirm the clam spend. BSBSBS!!!!!

  2. Crashing!! Grinding my gears. Had intermittent crash problems before, but this event, every time I open the game and play for a few minutes…forced shutdown. Have seen others grind their gears about this in the past and thought it was an isolated issue and that I was fortunate enough to not have that problem. Now it seems more frequent the more events they roll out.

    Also putting my two cents in for Bonnie not dropping the green Synthesizer Ore. Haven’t earned 1 yet and have had her doing her task since the start of the game, almost 1 week and not 1 drop. They should change the drop rate from Rare to NEVER.

  3. There’s a trick to get the synthesizer ore. It might take time but it guarantees you an ore everytime. takes 10 hours though.

    what you need to do is change rooms… if you have all 4 rooms occupied, just go to your super cargo room (SCR) and click change room… change to cargo room for example (4hours to build). Once the Cargo room is ready, change that room again back to SCR…(6 hours to build) and you will automatic get an ore… It’s better than waiting for 6 hours to get an ore…no guarantee as well. This one is certain 10 hours task.

  4. What really grind my gears…. so far, the only thing is the synthesizer ore drop rate; Bonnie is hardly giving the stuff, and that there should be more characters helping (Roger, Alien, Patrick,) but this was only the first week, so, let’s see. The event looks awesome actually, and I really like how they planned this first part. Everything was attainable. I hope they keep this rhythm for the rest of the event.

  6. I have a big problem, I use to play the game in 2 different devises – tablet at home and smart phone when I am on the go but ever since the last update I keep getting a data error msg and can’t play on my smart phone, I work long hours everyday so this delays my progress a lot. The msg is: “there was a problem configuring the game. Please try again” – the goes on a loop every time I reload the game. Also it is very hard – too hard to get the green cubes really want to get mort before we get to the next update 😦

  7. I’m in agreement with the some of the others, the synthesizer ore’s drop rate is really annoying. Especially when only Bonnie and the Super Rad Cargo Bay is the only two things that can drop them. I haven’t received one from Bonnie yet and she’s done her task about 8 or 9 times and I only received 1 from the room and that was upon completion of the room 😒 so that’s grinding my gears

  8. The dark green cubes are really taking the piss, takes forever to drop one and I have nearly 3000 pink diamonds and nowt spend them on

  9. Patrick Stewart & George Takei have 0 tasks for this event. Poor drop rates. Lets not forget the game crashes with no fix in sight other than reboot your phone.

    1. It’s cool Tat, I usually moderate most of the comments and try to reply to every one, but obviously when I’m not around like if I’m asleep or working then the other Mods do it too so it might just be an oversight 🙂 we’ll always try and help everyone the best we can

    1. I don’t know how we’ve missed your comments Tat hun, but I’m sorry about that, it seems to be yeah, I’ve not got him yet as I’m saving my cubes to unlock Deanna Troy tonight but if no part 2 of the quest has been generated after you completed part 1 then I’d assume that’s it for Mort 🙂

      Once again, sorry for missing your comments

  12. I would second the idle characters. At least give Patrick Stewart and George Takei some Trek-related task for crying out loud. That has been a constant gripe though. I understand they utilize the early characters to make the events as accessible to new players as possible but I think they need to reward us early adopters and give us some tasks for Premium/Event characters. Give Buzz and Jake some Life Support drops, give Stewart/Takei Synthesizer Ore drops, etc. Doesn’t detract from the event for the newbies but rewards those of us that have stuck it out by making the event a little easier.

    1. I have been screaming that all along LJ!!! It makes no sense.. and to have joint task quests too!!! NO reason why there isn’t a joint task between Patrick Stewart and George Takei.. Can even have a big joint task with all of the Trek characters.. And yes reward the people that have everyone or everything.. It shows dedication to the game!!!!

  13. The excessive lagging and eventual crashing almost led me to press that uninstall button. It’s obviously been a problem since the game was invented but seems to get worse with every event. They should really fix the lag/crash problem before introducing new events.

    Apart from that, the difficulty of obtaining life support energy and synthesizer ore are grinding my gears. Only one or two characters can drop each and they are rare? It doesn’t seem entirely fair.

    Speaking of drop difficulty, even event xp is hard to get. Please give us more ways to collect everything.

  14. The dark green cubes are what’s killing me. I’ve had Bonnie on that task constantly for 4 days and she’s only dropped 1. Haven’t had much better luck with the rad cargo bay. I Have 2 of them and have only gotten 1 from both of them in 3 days.

    1. OSebhlen… I was in the same boat… I posted on another thread about the drop rate and boom… Bonnie and the rad cargo bay both dropped the last two I needed for Mort!

  15. Drop rates on the green jelly. (whatever it is!) I have 2 super rad cargo Bays and haven had a single one! Bonnie has done nothing but her task for this, all week long and I have 4 to show for it. Sigh.

    1. Take advantage of the (seemingly) guaranteed drop when you build the Super Rad Cargo Bays. If you already have more than 4 rooms, you can swap in the room in storage where you had your SRCB (it costs nothing, just the build time), then swap that one from storage elsewhere. It takes 10 hrs instead of 6, but you get a green cube every time.

  16. What really grinds my gears has been the turbolift. Nearly all the characters with tasks on the enterprise are sent to that room/building thing and when they complete their task, it’s hard to tap on them. This has caused me to miss some of the awesome dialog.

    That and the fact that all the rooms you buy/collect for become decorations at the end is the main reason I’m not buying any premium rooms.

    Even though I’m not too familiar with the Star Trek series, this has been an enjoyable event. Everything do-able, drop rates are decent, most things work properly, and the Enterprise ship is an amazing addition.

  17. The length of time it is taking to level up to level 2, with naff all star trek experience points dropping!! That really grinds my gears.

  18. No characters other than the new ones dropping crystals. Normally you can set some long tasks for crystals on those useless characters that haven’t done anything since the event you paid for them! 3x20hr for rainbows and such slow progress on the levelling up on this one.
