We will be bringing the Tribble server down for maintenance to apply a new update.

  • There is now a new interact effect.
    • There will be some swiping lines as well as a bracketed vertical aspect to it.
      • Give us some feedback so we know how you like it!
  • We made a change that should significantly reduce all of the crashing to desktop. Please let us know if that's the case!
  • Azlesa Expanse exploration missions are no longer a daily, so it no longer awards dilithium.

  • Added warp-to locations have been added to the mission journal through the Romulan Hub.

  • Make the More Info button turn into the Hail button for completed missions if you can hail the contact.
  • Improved carrier pet repair drone healing and carrier pet siphon pod draining capabilities.
  • Corrected text for carrier repair drones and siphon pods.
  • Dampening Fields should automatically disappear after a short time on maps where there creator has left.

    • The Klingon Academy event will be added soon.
      • This event will be analogous to the Starfleet Academy Event.
  • Tour the Galaxy Event
    • The Tour Event will now grant Duty Officer XP as well as Energy Credits.
      • This will give players a great way to look for Sector Block DOFF assignments and earn rewards at the same time.
    • The amount of Energy Credits and Duty Officer XP that can be earned from the Tour event now scales with player level.
    • The tour event will now only send players to visit level-appropriate areas of Sector Space.

Crafting
  • Returned the ability to craft uncommon or rare even-mark gear, but with a cost in dilithium in addition to crafting materials.
    • The dilithium cost is a percentage of the cost to flat out buy the item from the dilithium store. The dilithium cost percentage increases with the rank of the item youíre crafting.
  • Very rare gear is still only craftable at the odd marks (including Mk XI), with a dilithium cost.

  • Disabled discard button for duty officers that are on assignment.
  • Your assignment history will now show your last 20 missions.
  • Bridge officer recruitment assignment and Trade assignment outcomes are now explicitly described. I.e., instead of "Critical Success" it will say, for example, "Extremely Profitable" or "Purple Quality".
  • Bridge officer recruitment assignments will give a modest numerics reward even on green quality outcomes.
  • Increased duration - and thus most numeric rewards - for many Trade assignments.
  • Added new icons for commendation tier tokens for duty officer store.
  • Added numeric rewards to unique personal mobility shield assignment.

Special Task Force
  • Infected Space
    • Destroying the Gate and Transformers is now a much more linear process.
      • To destroy the Gate you must destroy both Transformers.
      • To destroy the Transformers you must destroy all four Generators.
      • All objects are now targetable (damageable) when the puzzle starts
      • You no longer have to damage one object to make a second object targetable.
        • As you destroy the objects, be on the lookout for reinforcements.
  • Cure Space
    • Healing puzzle changes similar to that of Infected Space.
    • The attackers going for the Kang have been increased slightly.
  • Cure Ground
    • Mini Boss Turrets have had a damage and health boost.
    • You can no longer climb over the boss shield in the Armek Fight.
  • Queue
    • Players will be kicked from the STF maps after the mission completes (or fails). You have 3 min to get any loot thatís dropped before you are removed.
    • STF Private Queues now require at least 3 people to start.
    • Fixed the bug that was not giving dead players on the STFs their loot.

  • Klingon Academy is missing itís map.
  • Auto Teaming not properly teaming people in the STFís
  • Gates are immune to torpedo damage, and carrier pets not acting correctly. Fix should be on the way soon for both issues.
  • If you transferred your character and are not seeing your CXP from the Doff system donít worry! Youíre still earning it, you just cant see it. We have a fix coming soon

I just saw that crafting now costs dilithiums and skipped the rest to say this: Wut? Why? But..... uggh I guess it was a way of doing something without being tied into the dilithium economy which made you change it to make yet another feature dependent on dilithium. Thanks Cryptic.
