    • Do not use the channel to claim false Red Alerts, do not discuss anything that is off topic, do not be rude, do not insult other users, do not spam and do not troll the channel.


  3. Borg Invasion Notes:

    • There are no Red Alert button pop ups in the Eta Eridani, Gamma Orionis, Pelia sector blocks or the exploration clusters/nebulas.

    • The Borg will invade every sector block at random intervals on a per instance basis. Look for a Red Alert? button on the lower right side of your screen.

    • When a Red Alert button pops up in a sector block instance, you have seven minutes to get to that sector block before the button vanishes.

    • The Borg that invade all sector blocks but the Orellius and Zeta Andromedae sector blocks are set to level 45 and everyone that is under level 45 will be bolstered to that level once inside the map.

    • Any player above level 45 that enters any Borg Red Alert map aside from those in the Orellius and Zeta Andromedae sector blocks will be bolstered down to level 45.

    • The Borg that invade the Zeta Andromedae sector block are level 51. Players will only be bolstered to level 45.

    • The Borg that invade the Orellius sector block are level 53. Players will only be bolstered to level 45.

    • The Borg enemy in the invasion Deep Space Encounters have no drops but give 5 times XP for kills. This bonus XP stacks with one xp boost and the QXP weekend if its running.

    • Players are offered a mission to receive a 15 minute XP boost upon entering the zone.

    • There are a significant number of accolades associated with this event.

    • There is a daily mission associated with the mission in each sector block, which means 11 daily missions in all. The reward for this daily is either a level appropriate random item or a dilithium container.

I am accolade hunting.

I need to kill Unimatrix 47 ships:
Two of Ten
Five of Ten
Eight of Ten

Which sector block for each? Seems like something that should be the the wiki but I can't find it!

To my recollection, those Boss ships are random. So not specific to any one sector incursion.

I was also under this impression, but I'm not 100%

They are completely random. Completely.

It's random. That means to get all ten ships, the expected number of runs (50th percentile) is about 30 attempts. Or if you already have 7 of them, it'll take about 18 more tries to get the last 3.

To try to get through more of these attempts, you can try to switch instances (upper right of screen) to kill another boss after the initial one.

On the plus side, you'll have to be horribly unlucky to NOT hit all 10 by the time you've completed the "kill 200 ships in <sector>" accolades for all 10 areas, or the galaxy-wide "kill 2000" version.

Is it random? When I had only one left, I also only had one sector veteran accolade left (for completing just one event in that sector, not the 200). I completed the one in that sector, and also got my final Unimatrix accolade.
