Greetings and Thank You! to everyone for the continued feedback on the Weekly Series Episodes and Patrols. The team is really enjoying the way these are shaping up and looking forward to each week just as much as you are!
As another reminder - new Featured Episodes are available Saturdays and turned on in game at 11am PDT. When a new episode is turned on, the mission will become immediately available. However, you will need to go to the right location and contact to take the new mission.
To play the new episode "Cold Comfort" there are a few requirements
You must have access to the Defera Sector (This requires level 10 for both the Fed/Klg faction)
You must have completed the first episode "Cold Call" and second episode "Out in the Cold"
You must be in the Defera Sector and hail Ambassador Surah to get the next episode
As I mentioned last week, Featured Episodes can be a mixture of combat and non-combat game play types. The episodes and daily mission can be played by both Federation and Klingon faction players. You can play these episodes at any level 10+ and the episode will scale to the team leader level (or just your level if you are solo). The episodes are small bite sized chunks of content, but over time all those chunks can add up into a ton of content. There is a daily patrol mission in the sector "Aid the Deferi" that offers 3 Emblems on completion for Fed/KLG players that are at max level. On this patrol, you may also find other missions the Deferi may ask for your assistance with (note: the patrols are not required to earn the special series reward)
When you complete each Featured Episode - you can return to the Defera Sector and turn the mission back in to Ambassador Surah to receive your unique mission reward.
In addition to these unique rewards at the end of each Featured Episode - there will be a Special Reward (limited edition) granted at the end of the Breen series if you completed the series prior to the next series start.
New Daily Mission!
This week also introduces a new daily mission from Ambassador Surah - "Rescue Deferi Captives" which can, depending on your faction, be completed differently. Federation players have a chance to earn Federation Diplomacy XP for completing this mission. Be warned, this mission can be failed and cannot be immediately retaken if you fail! So think it through and read your objectives.
Jiro and Jempok
You may have already noticed that there is a new contact option in the Defera Sector this week to speak to a political representative from your faction. Over the next several episodes, you'll begin to see your faction's political response to the events taking place with the Breen and the Deferi. While there is no direct mission related to these contacts, they are there to help add depth to the story. We hope you enjoy this!
We hope you are enjoying this new content direction and we're always eager to get your feedback. We plan to keep making these feature episode on a regular schedule if you love them, and if you don't like them or have feedback, let us know and we'll course correct.
