Upcoming in STO

Captain's Blog Stardate 90489.96

It is finally here, Season 7. I'm no longer going to bore you about all it's features. Although I do want to give you a quick tip. There is a huge bug that prevents you from changing your bridge officers on your ship's stations. Until they release a fix you can switch to another ship then swithc back,this will temporarily fix the problem.

Now it's time to look to the future of STO. In December Cryptic will be holding a winter event. I heard it will be starting around December 6th, but I don't know how accurate that is. The 2011 winter event was loads of fun. Of course Q was hosting as he does all of STO's events. There were tons of items you can buy with special items that you would win by doing different events in Q's Winter Wonderland. This event is actually what started the whole lockbox idea. Cryptic gave away a Jem'Hadar attack ship which was the first unique ship given to players and it was inside a box.

Well this year it will be very similar. From what I heard there will be more things to do which is always fun. I'm sure there will even be more prizes and items to buy. Who knows, we may even be getting a new lockbox. The winter event has to be one of my favorite events in STO so I'm extra excited for it.


In February we have the three year anniversary event for Star Trek Online. This has always been fun and of course there are ways to get vairous prizes... and yes Q will be hosting. Cryptic always makes a big thing out of their anniversary which I'm happy about. It's always a nice way to unwind and have some fun with other players.

That's all for this week folks! If you live in the United States and celebrate Thanksgiving, then have a great day on Thursday! Everyone else, I hope you're week is great and fun. See you around the universe!

Definitely share the excitement for both these upcoming events. The Winter Wonderland was awesome last year and I hope we'll see it expanded upon this year with more events and prizes to win.

Dan Stahl had a few good comments about the Winter event in his last post: Last year's Winter Wonderland has been updated to include new missions, a new track, new rewards, a new ship, and plenty of fun that will run through the new year.

We will also be running a full month of Feature Episode Replay where all the limited time rewards from all four series will be available all month long. So if you've got some new characters that need these special items, December is going to be your chance to catch up.

STO 3 Year Anniversary Event: This special celebration will be released with a new one-off Feature Episode. If you were at the Star Trek convention in San Francisco this last weekend, Denise Crosby would have you believe that this episode is going to be all about Tasha Yar and Sela. We'll see´┐Ż anything can happen.

The anniversary event will also offer a new special free ship for both Fed and Kdf players much like we gave away the Odyssey during last year's event.
