It’s been three whole years since Star Trek Online MMORPG left Spacedock, and to celebrate Cryptic is throwing a party and giving away prizes to thank players who have supported the game and helped it to reach this milestone. So while you’re cruising around the galaxy bringing peace to the quadrant during the Star Trek Online anniversary, you could be doing it in style with (best Price is Right voice) a brand new ship!
Starfleet Command has been getting reports about a strange temporal anomaly in the Azure Nebula. Early intelligence has linked this anomaly with Tholian experiments that are using the nebula’s unique properties to gain access to the past. Such a conclusion has been supported by stray subspace signals being intercepted from the area with Starfleet transponder codes dating back to the mid-24th century.
Players that are level 6 Federation Lieutenant and higher can speak with Engineer Kani on Earth Spacedock for the latest information about this situation to begin the event mission. Players who complete the mission will receive a Support Cruiser Starship – Ambassador Class (Tier 3), as well as a Support Cruiser Retrofit Starship – Ambassador Class (Tier 5). The retrofit ship can only be obtained by completing this mission during the Star Trek Online anniversary event, and the box containing the ship can only be opened once the character reaches the rank of Rear Admiral. The ship stats were not revealed, but will be coming in a later blog post.
There’s no need to feel left out if you prefer the Klingon Empire. They too are investigating the Azure Nebula, and as a reward players will receive a Battlecruiser Starship – Kamarag Class (Tier 3) along with a Battlecruiser Retrofit Starship – Kamarag Class (Tier 5). The same restrictions as the Federation retrofit apply to the Klingon retrofit ship.
The master of ceremonies for the Star Trek Online 3-year anniversary will be none other than Q himself. He will be hosting parties on both Earth Spacedock and Qo’noS, and players can stop by daily to help him to coordinate the guest list and receive a prize.
The Star Trek Online 3-year anniversary event will take place beginning at 10am PST on January 31st and run through 10am PST on February 14th.
