You all are ripping this right now but wait until the bug ship and galor are on exchange. When I read that 4th passive ability- that signaled to me that the bug ship is on the way.

The bug ship came and went... might come again "late 2012" (quoting FAQ posted by Cryptic on Winter Event), but not soon

I use it on a power draining sci escort to decent effect. The deflector does boost both the energy drain and disable to subsystem targeting. The engines are pretty good in my opinion as well. Granted this is not an optimum set by any means, but it is kinda nice for a sci oriented toon.

Just adding:

Quote:
Updated description of "Victory is Life" set bonus for Jem'Hadar set:
Corrected proc percentage to match actual proc percentage of 1%.
Corrected description to include the Cardassian Galor as valid ship to receive this benefit.
So they nerfed the proc (I'm sure it was 2.5% originally, but nerfed due to complaints). And applies to the Galor... interesting at least

I hope Jman is reading these posts about the Jem' Hadar set he created. watch the interview he just had with Stoked in it he tries to justify the set bonus and its full of fail.

Minus the infinite shield bug with the Jem'Hadar shield, it's actually looks like a decent shield.

It's similar to a MACO shield, but with ~1.5k less capacity. Also, it has, I think, +50 crew injury resistance and +10 kinetic damage resistance.

I'd still take Omega and MACO gear compared to this, but it's not bad. Put the set on my runabout.

I am a Captain, with a Defiant Escort...

I put a full set of MKVIII Jem Hader equipment on my little Defiant...

Jem'Hadar Combat Impulse Engines

Jem'Hadar Deflector Dish
Jem'Hader Phased Polaron Dual Cannon x2

I repeated several missions numerous times to get a full set, as when I started doing these missions, I was the Commander Rank and originally received two of the MK VI versions which I put on my Akira/Thunderchild Refit, but then I hit my Captain Rank and gained a new ship...

I even did Boldy They Rode, twice in one night so I could get Dual cannons on my Defiant; along with the dual Quantum Torpedoes on the fore that I picked up on the Exchange..

I can say...

I am quite impressed!

I have taken down Marauder Battleships, D'deridex Battleships; all within a matter of seconds!

Originally, in my Akira/Thunderchild refit Escort with max-level MK VI gear loaded on Commander rank; these ships were difficult fights for me; and now I tear through them as though they were empty aluminum cans!

Unfortunately, by the time I may hit the Lower Half Admiralty Rank; I suspect these episodes will no longer be available and I will not be able to acquire a higher teir in equipment for my next rank ship....

Also, before I added the dual Polaron Cannons; I was running a pair of Dual Phaser Heavy's; maxed MK VIII Purples that I grabbed from the Exchange; and replaced my Phaser Relay console with the Polaron Phase Modulator console; and my Polaron's are much, much better!

All the original gear stays on the Replays so you can get it all again. The only thing that won't stay is the special Series Reward: The Shard of Possibility.

The missions are permanent. They aren't going anywhere. The only thing that is going away after the 19th is the ability to earn the Shard of Possibilities. All the other rewards will continue to be present in the game. My guess is they will move them to the end of the Cardassian Struggle arc of missions.

Keep in mind the Devidian series, Breen series, and Romulan series were all Featured Episodes at one point or another. Each time the missions were left in the game. The Devidian series' limited time reward was the Ophidian Cane, the Breen was a Breen tactical bridge officer, and the Romulans offered a Reman scientific bridge officer. Those were the only rewards that aren't available at the current time. All the other rewards from those series are still available.
