What to Know about Season 7

Captain's Blog Stardate 90469.59

As some of you may have heard about by now, Season 7 is being launched this Tuesday with all the bells and whistles you have been reading about. Personally I'm very excited about it because there are tons of changes and features which are going to make the game even better. There isn't much else to do except get ready for the change.

Those of you who have been doing STFs and saving your salvage, encrypted data chips, borg tech, or have equipment requisition items should be aware that all of this will be converted into Omega Marks and put into a crate that you will find in your inventory. Once you reach Tier 3 in the Omega Reputation you'll be able to open it and claim the Omega Marks. If you didn't know, the Omega Marks are used for Omega Reputation projects. You can obtain them by doing Borg missions such as STFs, Defari Invasion Zone, and Red Alerts. Don't worry, you get to keep all of the equipment you currently have from the STFs. If you want more you'll need to work your way through the Omega Reputation system which has stores that let you buy more Borg equipment.

On a similar note, there are two new STFs out. Into the Hive and Hive Onslaught. Both are very challenging missions but a lot of fun. I will be adding walkthroughs on the site while the game is under maintenance for Season 7.

You should also be aware that there is a new sector that has been added, the Tau Dewa sector. This is between the Pi Canis, Psi Velorum, and Regulus sector blocks. You might be wondering what happened to the Arucanis Arm and Hromi Clusters. You can get into them by going to their point on the map like any other system. The Arucanis Arm can be found in the Regulus sector block and the Hromi Cluster can be found in the Pi Canis sector block. In the Tau Dewa sector is New Romulus where the fleet embassy is located as well as a huge map for New Romulus where you will be able to do tons of missions to earn Romuluan Marks for the Romulan Reputation. This works the same as the Omega Reputation.

Speaking of the Reputation system. Each tier for any reputation will give you the option of choosing a new passive ability. Passive abilities aren't the ones you can click on, instead they are active in the background. The fifth tier gives you a new clickable ability. In order to increase in tiers you need to complete projects by contributing to them. Keep an eye out for the reputation guide I'll put on the site during the game's maintenance.

The last thing I want to tell you about is get ready for a change in Dilithium rewards. The STFs have had the amount of Dilithium they reward reduced so it may take you a little longer to reach that daily 8000 Dilithium refinement limit. A lot of people believe that with the reductions in Dilithium rewards and the increase in amount of Dilithium needed for projects, item purchases, etc. will cause a shortage of Dilithium. Frankly I don't entirely agree, but only time will tell.

So now that we are just a few days away from Season 7, I'd like to hear your final thoughts and expectations of the system. So start commenting!

I'm looking forward to it - earning the top gear rather than being lucky makes sense to me. I'm not even too annoyed about waiting to open my little goody-box as it will be a nice bonus. I don't like the requirements that I saw on the test system for the new projects - they seem really over the top for the benefits that you get. For example, 30 regenerators might not seem like a lot, but I don't think I've ever had that many

Well luckily you can easily buy the regenerators nearly anywhere for energy credits.

Having read the Release notes, I guess some people will be disappointed with the future "Investigate Officer Reports" as it only awards missions that grant XP and/or EC. Well, no more hit one console to get 1440 Dilithium.

Interesting that Tau Dewa sector is not adding too much to the "Tour the universe" EC-grind-game. Just a little detour, similar to Beta Ursae/Alpha Trianguli slalom.
