Note: think it was 2010, maybe 2011 ^^'
The Red and Blue Naopulse weapons were added to STO during the Winter Wonderland of 2011. STO didn't have a December holiday event in 2010.

As a further point of interest, the nanopulse weapons were added on Dec 20, 2011 as a nod of recognition by the Cryptic Team to the launch of the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO Game. Not only are the weapons reminiscent of the red/blue lightsabers of Star Wars fame, but they were "sold" (for free, at the time, to all players) by a Ferengi Special Weapons Dealer that looked and spoke very much like Star Wars' Jedi Master Yoda (pictured here).
