We want to remind everyone that new Featured Episodes are available Saturdays and turned on in game at 11am PDT. When a new episode is turned on, the mission will become immediately available. However, you will need to go to the right location and contact to take the new mission.
To play the new episode "Cold Case" there are a few requirements
You must have access to the Defera Sector (This requires level 10 for both the Fed/Klg faction).
You must have completed previous episodes in the episode chain.
You must be in the Defera Sector and hail Ambassador Surah to get the next episode.
As you discovered with last week's "Cold Comfort", Featured Episodes can be a mixture of combat and non-combat game play types. The episodes and daily mission can be played by both Federation and Klingon faction players. You can play these episodes at any level 10+ and the episode will scale to the team leader level (or just your level if you are solo). The episodes are small bite sized chunks of content, but over time all those chunks can add up into a ton of content. There is a daily patrol mission in the sector "Aid the Deferi" that offers 3 Emblems on completion for Fed/KLG players that are at max level. On this patrol, you may also find other missions the Deferi may ask for your assistance with (note: the patrols are not required to earn the special series reward)
When you complete each Featured Episode - you can return to the Defera Sector and turn the mission back in to Ambassador Surah to receive your unique mission reward.
In addition to these unique rewards at the end of each Featured Episode - there will be a Special Reward (limited edition) granted at the end of the Breen series if you completed the series prior to the next series start. You will not have to wait to get this reward, you claim it at the end of the last episode as the mission reward. That reward will only be available to be claimed up until 3am PDT on October 14th, just prior to when the next Featured Episode Series starts.
This week's episode has players returning to Defera to uncover the secrets of the Preserver ruins where you will pick up your first clue as to the location of the Preserver Archive.
We hope you are enjoying this new content direction and we're always eager to get your feedback. We plan to keep making these feature episode on a regular schedule if you love them, and if you don't like them or have feedback, let us know and we'll course correct.
