  • Slightly reduced xp from provision assignments.
  • Increased fleet credit costs of provisioned gear.
    • This does not include consumables.
  • Players will donate Expertise, formerly Bridge Officer Skillpoints, in blocks of 25.
    • Each block of 25 will provide 1 fleet credit.
  • Updated Federation Starbase interiors:
    • Moved the locations of various vendors to different floors.
      • Military floor: Ship selector, ship vendor.
      • Engineering floor: Ship tailor.
      • Science floor: Bridge Officer trainer, Captain Retrainer.
  • Added Transwarp to Feet Starbase power to all players.
    • Only works if player is in a fleet with a T1 Transwarp.
  • Starbase Operational Assets can now be used with weapons and auxiliary offline.
    • Reduced Starbase Phaser Lance and Disruptor Lance damage by 50%.
    • Changed the proc for fleet elite disruptor weapons.
      • This proc now has a chance to vaporize targets that are already very low on health.
  • Changed unlocks for provisioned gear to be based on Industrial Fabricator or Science Array level rather than starbase xp level.
  • Projects all use 6 items or fewer for contributions.
  • Operational Assets now come in different tabs for Engineering, Military, and Science.
    • Ground and space have separate stores.

Foundry:
  • The following custom costumes have been updated to display correctly:
    • Corsair Flight Deck Carrier
    • Dacoit Flight Deck Carrier
    • Phalanx Science Vessel
  • Added descriptions for the behaviors Legacy Combat and Legacy Contact.
  • Resolved the issue that erroneously allowed Leave From: Whole Map on Cryptic maps.

Systems:
  • Updated Security Escort, Security Crewmen and Shard Of Possibilities Shadows so they now properly land critical hits.
  • Security Escort HP properly increases with player's Squad Command skill.
  • Normalized HP, Damage and Shields for Fed and Klingon Security Escorts.
    • They were not consistent.
  • Increased the time it takes for Security Escort to beam out if you are not in combat.
  • Improved Shard Of Possibilities Shadows HP, Damage and Shields.
  • Shard Of Possibilities Shadows will now always last 60 seconds.
    • They won't leave if you are not in combat.
    • Improved and corrected tooltips for Shard Of Possibilities.
  • Updated Freighter Transwarp Destinations.
    • Removed duplicate Arucanis Arm Starcluster.
    • Added Afehirr Nebula and B'Tran Cluster.
  • Updated the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship, Cardassian Galor, and Ferengi D'Kora so they have bonus HP, bonus shields, and an additional console slot so they are competitive with the fleet ships.
  • Reduced the cooldown of "Experimental Borg Device" from 10 seconds to 5 seconds.
  • Updated the tooltip on Immunosupport Nanites that incorrectly said +20% melee damage to instead display -20% melee damage as intended.
    • This is a text-only update.

UI:
  • The fleet the character is in is now displayed on the login screen.
  • Costume and body variants in the tailor and character creation are now working as expected.
  • Ships in the tailor now show a preview of their updates when options are moused over.
  • Updated Mirror Universe event journal preview to show the new Mirror Universe ship skins.

  • Added event filmstrip images for Starbase Blockade and Starbase Incursion.
  • KDF contacts should no longer use the Federation overhead icons.
  • The "Others" ship filter in the Federation ship store has been re-added.

Known Issues:
  • Tholian reward boxes are not dropping weapons as they should.
    • Sometimes the box is empty when you open it.
      • This is not intentional.
  • The Expertise contribution window is displaying the wrong amount of Expertise you own as well as how much you can contribute.
    • If you try to contribute more than you have, it will fail.
    • To see how much expertise you have, check the Skills menu on one of your Bridge Officers and keep the contribution amount under that number.
  • Some interacts on the second floor of the Tholian cave are behind pods and cannot be claimed.
    • You can still complete the mission without these.
  • In the Tholian Invasion, all Engineer pets catch fire and explode.
  • Prisoners involved in the Interspacial Inquiry mission are on fire.
    • Interspatial is misspelled too.

Due to recent legitimate purchases on your account you have been placed on probation, because that makes good business sense, right? right?
