So, what happens if the project does not get filled before the winter event ends? I assume the 'collectibles' will no longer be available after the event.

We will have an in-game solution for Fleets that find themselves in this situation, either towards the end of the event or after it is over. You will not end up stuck with the project, don't worry.
Hope that answers the question.

Additionally, the Collectible items themselves will not vanish at the end of the Event. It's likely you'll still be able to find them on the Exchange and such. Only the method of obtaining new ones will go away when the Event ends.

So it sounds like this won't be like the other special limited-time Dilithium-based Starbase enhancement projects, where once you start it you have all the time in the world to complete it - interesting. Good thing the Winter Commodities are tradeable this year then!

Sounds more like finish this project before the event ends or it will cost dilithium to finish it off. So get 75% of it done means that it will cost 50,000 dilithium to finish it off.

Sure these items able to be put on the Exchange? I just did a search and didn't find any (surely someone would've put them on the exchange by now). And I used the items themselves, so I wouldn't have a typo problem.

Second, (providing these items are on the exchange), surely people would be price gouging to the point of madness, knowing fleets will be needing these to complete projects.


So why not have the Latinum Counter allow you to purchase the missing items after the Event is over?
NO to ARC!

I found many on the exchange, BUT, they are NOT cheap - the sleigh bells are currentyl going for 380K each, for one. They are there, but because the event just started, people are buying them off the exchange very fast.

Wait for the event to get rolling mid december, hopefully prices will decline as peopel acquire more of these Holidays trinkets.

What gets me though, is why make those boxes that are purchased from teh ferengi "BOUND." There is no logical reason for doing so. Un-bind them and allow it for players to sell on the exchange.

It is already happening, thats why CRYPTIC need to at least increase trinket drop rates "OR" make other means to acquire more. Un-Bind the Trinket Boxes

Has anyone seen any update on info about this? I've seen they added the ability to trade in holiday items for gpl, but I have yet to see anything about the problem of being able to finish the event. Lobi crystals and the exchange are the only way to get the items needed at this point and that's not going to be possible for a lot to complete. I saw something about the 31st being the last day for holiday items, but that's also the last day for the new event, that doesn't seem right.
