Look at your own risk.
Heck with the reward, I want th TOS bundle pack.

Regarding the series finale, I have to work a long day tomorrow so I'll be missing out.

Oh well, it will be sad to see it wrap up anyway.

Really looking forward to it, even if it means the end of another Romulan story arc (my favorite ones of the game, really). Also, I was thinking that the special reward would be that, and now I'm just curious as to what the episode's reward is, and if/when we will see the daily(ies) for this series as well.

Also, good to see the TOS bundle coming out at the end of the month; definitely will be getting that if it's as cool as I think it will be.

So, even though I have to work tomorrow and Sunday, I look forward to the episode, whenever I get around to playing it! Do we have to avert the Romulan civil war, or can we try to egg it on?

while I'm downloading the patch it says "limited time special reward" I feel out of the loop, what do we get?

Each of the Featured Series have a special reward for completing all the missions within a certain time frame of the series' release. This one's time limit is until March 24th (a little over 2.5 weeks after the 5th episode goes live), and, after that, people who didn't finish it will have to wait for a "re-run" of the series in the future to get the limited reward (or, if/when Cryptic does so, buy it from the C-Store).

You still will get offered a reward(s) for the 5th episode itself; it's just the limited time special reward that won't be obtainable by finishing the series. If you want to know what it is, they've posted the info about it on the calendar:

Ahhh cool, I assume what it says on there is the reward. I was looking around for what it was. I'm happy for the reward.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to it as well. I eventually want to have my own Romulan character (whenever the faction is added, which I hope isn't too soon; the Klingons still need a lot of love, and I want the Romulans to launch better than they did), but I'll settle for that for now.

I'm just curious at to what kind it'll be, and whether it's appearance will be changeable. I'm thinking that it probably won't be changeable, since most of the special ones like that aren't. I hope that I'm wrong, though.

Ah, okay, I was clicking the link, saw that a video was attached,
but it turned out it was the video they showed at the beginning of the series.
I'm really looking forward to the reman BO, which I assumed would be the series reward,
since in episode 3 one of the reman rebels mentioned he'd like to join a FED/KDF crew...
Hopefully he's customizable unlike the Breen BO
(or so I hear, I don't have the breen. rerun weekend, please come soon )

But all in all, considering the last 4 episodes I have to say that I enjoyed Cloaked Intentions the most.
"The Breen" was good, but it suffered from being the first featured series.
"The Devidians" was better than The Breen, especially "What Lies Beneath" creeped me out to no end!
I kinda liked and at the same time disliked the whole going back into the parts bit, though.
But hey, Dr McCoy!
But "Cloaked Intentions" really is the pinnacle of the featured series so far!
Especially for mixing it up with new stuff to do.... Shuttle mission, Melee combat...
And the environments, with The Vault, the mining town, the ice cave, the desert landscape....
INCREDIBLE!
And tomorrow we'll visit another awesome locale! Awesome, can't wait.
But now enough of me praising the featured series.... Looking forward to Series 4

Sorry to have to disagree, but I sure am tired of uninspired "Limited Edition Rewards"

How many more "unique bridge officers" do I REALLY NEED at VA? Liberated Borg, Holographic, Breen, one for the diplomatic missions...and now Reman? My Away Team looks more and more like a freak show every month it seams like.

Give me something I can use like a Thorlon Torpedo Launcher, Unique weapon, costume piece, universal console etc etc etc... Hell an EMOTE would be acceptable... For all the hard work it's just a little disappointing in my opinion.

But the episodes themselves have been top notch no complaints there, infact nothing but praise for the level design, most of the writing, and the puzzles. Looking forward to the next set of 5.

Awesome Mission! Well done Cryptic! Nice mix of space, ground, and Epic "Last Stands".

Oh, and I liked the Darkness Before the Dawn prologue... The dénouement was a nice touch!
