Relentless Title
FREE Emblems (250)
FREE Extra Ship Slot
FREE Exclusive Costume Piece (Federation): "Jupiter" Uniform Variant
FREE Exclusive Costume Piece (KDF): Shoulder Cape
Title, but the accolade isn't mentioned... Hmmm... ??? Love the idea of extra emblems. Very nice. My assumption would be that they are given out to each character separately, but is level-locked and only available to VA1s, so people will have to wait to rank to claim them.

Also, if memory serves, the Emblem gear is bind-on-pick-up, so you wouldn't be able to trade/sell on the exchange. I suppose you could sell it to shopkeepers/replicators and "farm" that meager EC, but if you have to level a character to VA to farm out 250 Emblems worth of EC... I just don't see that being a viable cheat.

Love the Extra Ship slot! This is great!

I'll reserve judgement on the Jupiter and KDF Cape until I see them. I'm a fan of costumes though, so I'm sure it'll be a cool.

(BTW, when will the KDF get a 100-day equivalent to the Alternate Future Variant Badge?)

The PhotoBoff is from another promotion and is easy enough to get...

I'm sorry, but I've already got the PhotoBoff, so I'm happy they're keeping it separate.

Yeah, I was wondering about this too. The previous rewards specifcially mentioned the Accolade.

Very cool! 250 Emblems will be a very nice bonus. The Jupiter uniform looks like it could be good, and a shoulder cape for Klingons? YES!!

If this is the case then it's a relatively recent change. I outfitted one of my characters primarily by grinding the dailies with rest and mailing the gear.

Which assumes the reward is level-gated.

You can get Purple gear on ESD. Weapons are 30 emblems each, consoles are 25. They DO NOT bind on Pickup, they bind on Equip, so you could get as many as you want and trade them away or sell them.

Personally, I don't care. The price on many of those purples on the Exchange are outrageous anyway.

Kind of pointless if every character doesn't get the emblems IMO. We wanted a free ship, they give us 50% off (basically). Better than what we expected to get.

Why? I want this as T5 so bad. Why Tease us with a picture when you posted it is unlikely to happen?

From what they've said, they won't be likely to do a T5 Connie anytime soon. It's not only contentious with the player base, but also with CBS.

I'm pretty sure that's what the Jupiter Uniforms are... unless they release the Jupiter uniforms for free (which they ought to do) and the Veterans' version is special.

Excellent point... hopefully it's just level gated, because 250 emblems per account would be a major bummer.

Indeed. Gating either the store or the reward is necessary. Because 250 across an entire account is... well...
