dang, I was hoping for another chance at the faction neutral targ pet I missed out on at the anniversary, but it's KDF only this time?

I love the Calvin and Hobbes inspired snowmen and the slip slidin' reminds me of slipping around in a former Cryptic game instance! Loved it!

There was a bug with the accolade, could not complete it. The "Klingon Customs" would not complete for me. :(
Also the race que was really frustrating. It was really challenging to actually get the race started.

1. A few rare gifts will have a Holographic Tribble, which both Federation and Klingon officers can use. The Holographic Tribble creates temporary holographic duplicates of itself when petted, so that everyone on your team can gain a tribble bonus.

2. Some very rare gifts will have a mobile emitter for a Holographic Science Officer, an 8-hour skill point boost, or a booster pack of Duty Officers. where is our chance at getting the playable borg race from the lifers considering you are now giving away a chance at our recruit a friend exclusive gifts.


Once your friend has purchased Star Trek Online, you’ll receive a brand new title – Courier – as well as an exclusive Holographic Tribble Pet! What’s more, you both can enjoy:

A special power to instantly travel to your friend (first 30 days).
A 5% Captain and Officer skill point bonus when you’re teamed up (first 15 days).
A 5% damage bonus when you’re teamed up (first 15 days).

Once your recruit has subscribed to the game for a month, you’ll earn:

A new title: Recruiter.
An exclusive Holographic Bridge Officer (works with Federation and Klingon players).
400 STO-only Cryptic Points.

Definitely appreciate the effort here. I'm still concerned that the Jem Hadar fighter is too powerful. It could easily have been a vanity ship with shuttle like stats, but now we have to worry about its impact on PvP.

EDIT: Please ignore this as I cannot follow my own advice. :(

Just so im clear, can the jem'hadar fighter be earned via the race if we are lucky?

is it permanent (ie not going away after the event ends)

and as its a VA/LG ship according to the post yesterday can a lower level character still win it or can it only be won by a max level character?

I think everyone should also keep in mind that if history has taught us anything it is that anything "rare" or "exclusive" will EVENTUALLY be in the C-store :o
