Star Trek Edition: What Grinds Your Gears?

I thought I would bring this forward so everyone can rant 🙂

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!

The Star Trek update has been live for a few weeks 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 – Whatever it is, we would love to hear what has been grinding your gears in the last week!

  1. Ug, Peter is on an away mission, and got a new quest alert with his icon, game won’t let me start the new quest, just takes me to the the away mission summary when I click on it. Had this issue a few weeks ago and told TinyCrap about it. Never got a response and guess they havent fixed it yet. Not happy

  2. 1) Still trying to get star fleet Lois (stupid felicium)
    2) Still trying to get Loticus (stupid laser pointers)
    3) Beverly will take a long time
    4) Getting Quagmire’s costumes looks impossible….

  3. I’m irked that somehow, Skimpy Sarong Herbert disappeared from the prizes for Cespool. I have the quest to do an away mission and get the Vulcan Bird, but I have purposefully been waiting to do it until I had unlock Lois so I would have the best chances of getting him each time. Now it’s gone

  4. I’ve been playing since the beginning and this event, albeit full of potential, has seriously drained my desire to continue on with the game. I have dropped some $$$ to buy clams to get some good premium characters only to see them toddle around useless as the days go on. New event brings new characters but now they are required to even do anything!

    They just released Q which made Meg a premium character if you buy Q, Worf, and Guinan (In 24 hours!) I have Worf but passed on Guinan. Probably will still pass which means I have the whole family minus one unless they change Stewie. (Dammit Meg!!)

    And then the laser pointers. NOW they need the upgraded Petercraft. It was impossible before. Now it is insane! I’m not even halfway done the laser pointers on Locutus and doubt I will ever get him.

    And the only way to get condoms? Buy Vulcan and grind away with transporter energy or buy Q and grind him with mariachi or buy however many things you can buy to grind away at getting phaser energy just for the extremely rare opportunity to shoot the shielded Petercraft and not only destroy it, but get something out of it that’s worth the effort!! Vulcan Quagmire isn’t premium but he may as well be since absolutely NO freemium player will ever get him and even those of us who did shell out will barely get him either!

    I’ve dropped some good cash on the game, had some fun, but there is NO FREAKIN WAY I am paying anymore until I see some return on investment.

  5. I just want 25 clams and 50 clams from characters and costume collection. Don’t think it will happen now unless Tiny Co does something about it.

  6. This isn’t a rant but I just logged into my game and found Quagmire performing the flash frenzy right in front of Bonnie!!

    Who else but Quagmire? 😂

      Comments like this make me realise how much I miss you as a comment moderator. This new guy isn’t the same. He NEVER let’s anything be said against tinycrap. He’s either TOO nice or a spy sent from tinycrap. I’m not hating but that grinds my gears sometimes. Now go get your old job back please.

      1. Yeah man come back! I offered you my soul….. Or something similar and I will stop talking about Bonnie for 24 whole entire hours! TinyC**k can suck my big toe this week – content is….. Pants 😉

      2. Haha this is what I mean. The new guy would never say anything like this.

        And are we all allowed to say tinyc**k? I’ve called them using insulting names in the past and got told off for it so I need to know what’s acceptable.

      3. If I rubbed a magic lamp I would have unlocked locutus, sf Lois, Vulcan quagmire and Beverly crusher by now haha. I just asked nicely, something that doesn’t work with tinyc**k. Either way it’s to have you back bro.

  7. Just look at it this way everyone. Even if you don’t unlock all the characters its not really going to matter. They won’t be doing anything else to help in the game ever again! How many characters do you have from special events that you just auto-send to do a 1 day task because they don’t do anything else? Everything will be ok! I do feel your pain though, I like to collect em all like Pokemon.

    1. This is the realest comment on this post. You got my respect bro.
      I only want to catch ’em all to get the clam prize and I don’t like the blank shadows on facespace. Let’s just convince ourselves that these are all premium characters (because they effectively are) so we don’t beat ourselves up about it.

      1. Is it irony that you have to destroy the “Shielded” Petercraft to get Space Condoms? Just sayin’…

    1. I had to pay real money for condoms. Something that doesn’t happen in my non gaming life….. I am just glad it doesn’t come up on my bank statement with itemised things I spent clams on 😉

      1. 100 clams for a trip to Vulcan for sexy time at the Pon Farr Ranch
        200 clams for a Security Officer who’s head looks like a fanny
        125 clams for a bedroom full of dead men.

        Yeah, I can see how an itemized list would be a bit disturbing.

  8. U know what grinds me gears…. I’m to busy with the Star Trek event to put Peter in the Grinds his gears quest for Tom Tucker’s Satellites. Lol how ironic. They are 1/10 they never drop with Stewie. Also the Star Trek drop rates are absolutely outdated I don’t have Locutus or Starfleet Lois and I play every hour with the exception of sleep and school. *Sigh

  9. This will be the first event of all events that I will not be able to unlock all characters. Pointless. Frustrated. This game is no longer an enjoyment to play, rather it is a chore. JUST. NOT. WORTH. IT.

  10. Ever since this event started I can’t play for me than 3 or 4 minutes inside Quahog without the game crashing. It didn’t crash on the enterprise but the frame rate drops to pure garbage!! This has to be fixed. I actually buy things in the game and now it’s becoming a waste because I can’t even enjoy the game!! Plus I’ll add to the piss poor drop rates complaints. Absolutely horrible!!

  11. This entire event is terrible in execution, but great in concept. Collecting has never been this difficult in this game. I have 40+ characters doing nothing and like 4 trying to earn anything towards the event. Feeling like it might be time toove on from this game….

  12. Also, now that I finally got Locutus…….he doesn’t do a damn thing! At least Riker earns Life support energy, but Locutus doesn’t earn anything! SF Lois meanwhile earns items for Bev as well as Phasers. Don’t make no sense!

  13. The insane amount of items to collect to unlock a character and the very low drop rate. As a freemium player this is the only event i don’t think i will unlock all the characters and skins 😦 This makes the game less enjoyable for someone who can not afford to spend any money.

  14. the drop rate for the Star Trek event is the worst ever… I have played all the events and despite the fact that I am checking in once an hour (set a timer), I can not get the drops needed to unlock the characters… 😦

  15. This whole event is killing me. Should have been the best event yet but the outrageous totals, terrible drop rates and the lack of characters who drop items are really making this the worst event ever. There’s a fine line between challenging and impossible and they crossed that line weeks ago. Almost ready to quit this game. Not fun anymore it’s more like work now

  16. Crashing as I EXIT the game. On Android device so I use the Back button on my phone and get the prompt from Ollie to exit, and several times as I click OK, I can see the game freeze and then crash. Then if I try to re-enter the game I am given a black screen and have to force quit the game to access again.
    Crusher can get items for V.Quagmire and V.Quagmire can get items for Crusher. Why do they keep doing this? They teased us with SF Lois getting Batteries for Locutus, but did ANYONE have SF Lois before getting all your Batteries? I know I didn’t because like others it took at least the whole week just to get the Felicium and the Laser Pointers when all other items were gathered in a couple days.
    42 friggen rares for VQ??!!! And we either spend 100 clams, then spend Transporter energy, then still have a rare chance of getting the item, OR try to shoot a fast moving target twice in less than 3 seconds with Phasers that we’re all running low on and then it’s still a rare chance of dropping. It’s gonna be the same story, we’re gonna have all items for Bev and VQ except for the 55 Hyposprays (which are thankfully uncommon) and the 42 RARE Space Condoms for VQ which will take at least another week.
    Haven’t had it pop yet (thank god) but the quest to shoot 50 of those lg ships in just over 2 days seems insane! I’m starting to save up now before I move forward in the questlines.
    I really love ST:TNG but they are making this game like work when it should be fun and entertaining.
    OH, and still no SS Herbert! No idea how many trips I’ve sent or energy I’ve wasted or combos I’ve tried, but it feels like a lot. 😦
    Annnnnnd beath. Really got on a roll there. Maybe I’ll watch some TV and ignore it for a bit 😛

      1. Wrong again, it should be breathe lol.

        While I have all the same problems as you, I want to add one more. In past events tiny co knew when try were wrong and made it easier as an apology, and I respected them for that. But not anymore, as that’s what grinds my gears. Even after 3 weeks of impossible tasks they still haven’t done anything to help us, rather they make every week harder than the last like they’re rubbing it in our faces.

    1. Wow!! my sentiments exactly, but with much more vigor than I could write. I am a bit behind you in the game so some of those “future” unlocks are going to really get me grinding my gears. “Looking forward” (sarcastically) to progressing in this event, if I can ever get out of Starfleet Level 5…

    2. I finally got SS Herbert :D. Been sending Peter by himself all day since he can only get Transporter energy, which I have over 30 of.
