I purchased a collector's edition of the game (love the life-size com badge btw!!!). As a benefit of the Col ed. I received red matter for use on my starship.
My question: Is the red matter a one-time only use item (i.e. only one character will be able to use it), or can all of my characters have access to one? If it's not BOP, can I mail it to my other characters? I tried mailing something to the borg character I created and it would only process the request, and I'm not sure if it's a glitch, or if I'm simply not allowed to mail my other characters items.
You don't mail it to other characters - each of your characters should be able to access the C-Store and get their own RMCap. I've got one for each of my characters.
In use, they are not one-shot items. They recharge in 10 minutes, and trigger the 5-min cooldown for any other batteries you have slotted. Still, the boost to all systems, rather than just one, is not bad at all.
