Rewards/Loot.
STF rewards do not work like standard missions where you hail your contact and collect your reward. Instead, at the end of the mission, each person gets a bag of loot. (Don't forget to collect it). Each bag contains a number of Omega Marks, Dilithium, and usually a random piece of gear. (Running elite will also get you a Borg Neuro Processor(s) which is used in the store). There is a chance that each borg will drop a piece of loot as well. All these borg drops are subject to the need/greed system. Proper etiquette dictates that you choose "greed" for most things, and "need" only if you actually are going to use the item. Wanting something so you can sell it on the exchange is not really a legitimate "need".

Note: The following information applies to gear obtainable in Season 6, not season 7. Now, the gear is obtained via the Omega Reputation system, and they no longer drop directly from STFs. However, I have kept the information here as it still provides some info on the gear should you be interested in buying them from the reputation store.

There are 4 special gear sets (per faction) that can be obtained from these STFs, plus the old 'legacy' borg set. Each set contains 3 pieces, and give special bonuses if all 3 are equipped. The gear sets are as follows:
  • M.A.C.O. Space set (Fed only)
  • M.A.C.O. Ground set (Fed only)
  • Honor Guard Space set (KDF only)
  • Honor Guard Ground set (KDF only)
  • Omega Force Space Set (Both Fed and KDF)
  • Omega Force Ground Set (Both Fed and KDF)
Each of these sets come in Mark X (recruit), XI (veteran), and XII (elite) versions. In addition, there are title and costume unlocks with obtaining some of these sets:
Omega Force -
  • Omega Force Initiate - Title Unlock - Play any STF segment ground or space once.
  • Omega Force Recruit - Title / Costume Unlock - Collect all three pieces Mark X Omega Ground Gear.
  • Omega Force Veteran - Title / Costume Unlock - Collect all three pieces Mark XI Omega Ground Gear.
  • Omega Force Operative -Title / Costume Unlock - Collect all three pieces Mark XII Omega Ground Gear.
M.A.C.O. -
  • M.A.C.O. Initiate - Title Only - Play any STF segment ground or space once.
  • M.A.C.O. Recruit - Title Only - Collect all three pieces Mark X M.A.C.O. Ground Gear.
  • M.A.C.O. Veteran - Title / Costume Unlock - Collect all three pieces Mark XI M.A.C.O. Ground Gear.
  • M.A.C.O. Commando -Title / Costume Unlock - Collect all three pieces Mark XII M.A.C.O. Ground Gear.
  • M.A.C.O. Team Specialist - Title Only - All Optional Objectives on "Normal" difficulty once on every STF Segment.
  • M.A.C.O. Team Commander - Title Only - All Optional Objectives on "Elite" difficulty once on every STF Segment.
Honor Guard -
  • Honor Guard Initiate - Title Only - Play any STF segment ground or space once.
  • Honor Guard Recruit - Title Only - Collect all three pieces Mark X Honor Guard Ground Gear.
  • Honor Guard Veteran - Title / Costume Unlock - Collect all three pieces Mark XI Honor Guard Ground Gear.
  • Honor Guard Elite -Title / Costume Unlock - Collect all three pieces Mark XII Honor Guard Ground Gear.
  • Honor Guard Specialist - Title Only - All Optional Objectives on "Normal" difficulty once on every STF Segment.
  • Honor Guard Commander - Title Only - All Optional Objectives on "Elite" difficulty once on every STF Segment.
Images: Mark XI MACO, Mark X Omega, Mark XI Omega, Mark XI Honor Guard, Mark XII Honor Guard. Also, you must have the full set - personal shield, armor, and weapon - to unlock the costume, and the set must be the same mark level (so 2 mark XI pieces with 1 mark X piece will not unlock anything). Once you unlock the costume, you can get it at any tailor.

And NEW for Season 7 is the Adapted MACO and Honor Guard set, available at T5 Omega reputation. These sets are basically the Fed/KDF counterpart sets. So the Adpated MACO set includes the gear and stats of the Klingon Honor Guard set. The Adapted Honor Guard set includes the gear and stats of the Fed MACO set. Are you a KDF player that wishes to get a MACO set? Then the Adapted Honor Guard is the set for you. Are you a Fed player that wants the Honor guard set? Then get the Adapted MACO set. Each adapted set comes with a variation of the respective costume (sold separately).
