The event calendar system is definitely one of the highlights of the F2P build. It offers a nice glimpse into the near future and see what is coming up. The MU event is fun and gives a good amount of XP. I just wish that you'd turn the Stadi back into an Odyssey-class ship, though.
Seeing the KDF Academy scheduled with the next batch of events has me excited. I look forward to taking a tour of that place. Good to know that it hasn't been pushed too far back.
