Sorry, returning F2P player here. What are "episodes" and will I be able to tackle them at Captain level? And can I grab a bug ship as a reward? I mean, they have 2800 of them. I doubt they'd miss one.

A string of playable missions that make up one story.
Each episode is released per week and they level to your Characters rank

Here are the previous ones ...

Luckily they will all warp to the same spot and get destroyed by the warp core explosions of the previous ships. Had that happen in The Other Side and it was glorious.

No. what ever the reward(s) may be, cryptic has pretty specifically stated CBS said no to that. To say nothing of what would happen if people that spent hundreds of dollars couldn't get one a couple months ago and they handed them out for free for playing a mission now. They'd need a bomb shelter to hide from that one.

The 2800

Several months ago, Starfleet and the KDF each started coming across stray Jem’Hadar attack ships in the sector near Deep Space Nine. This was unexpected, as was the fact that the ships appear to be of an older design, not seen in over 30 years. Researchers are busy trying to understand where these ships came from.
The newest featured episode series in Star Trek Online is coming this Saturday. The story explores what happened to the 2,800 Dominion warships that “disappeared” within the wormhole near Deep Space Nine. To catch up on your history of events, find a copy of the Deep Space Nine season 6's episode “Sacrifice of Angels”, or explore further by also watching the season 5 finale and the 5 episodes in season 6 that precede the momentous events in “Sacrifice of Angels”.
The first episode in The 2800 will premiere at 10:00 am PST on February 11, 2012. The series will continue through four more episodes, each releasing on Saturday at 10:00 am PST, and culminating with the final episode on March 10, 2012.
Be sure to tune in during the first run of the series to get the extra bonus rewards that will be available during the first run. Once the series goes into reruns in late March, the bonus rewards will be removed.
Do you have what it takes to face the threat that required the legendary Benjamin Sisko to appeal to the Prophets for help?

Why not set up a Netflix Affiliate ( https://account.netflix.com/Affiliates ) account and get on the passive income market. have it so that you give a 1 Month free trial to Netflix ( which has all of Start Trek: TOS, TAS, TNG, DS9, Voy, Ent, and The Captains: the William Shatner Documentary on instant streaming )

and then you'd make some extra money on the side

Unfortunately, as already in quite some other dev diaries, there is nothing actually new in this one. Some diaries are just sum-ups of older news. I'd like to know actual news in a dev diary, lol.

My suggestion for the reward would be a Jem'Hadar shroud device....

Which will get nerfed 2 days after the series ends because the devs realize how much it breaks the rest of their missions.

Maybe a baby changeling pet? Nah, discussions about slavery would probably rise before the finale has been released.

A Ketracel White injector (non addictive) to enhance your damage and resistance?


In the end my money is on a Boff... not sure if I want Jemmie or Vorta.

I find this idea great. Imagine the Jem'Hadar coming out of the wormhole, overrunning DS9 at unexpectedly heavy losses, with Fed personnel having actually personal shields and all that... and then the fire-baptized 2410 Fed fleet arrives to strike back.
