I'm not quite sure how you inferred that line of reasoning. But to be clear, what I was suggesting was that in the present the Tholians may seemingly be interested in a number of planets in this sector block, since it seems the Romulans in the screenshots for this dev blog show them fighting Tholians. Exactly how is the Suliban homeworld currently uninhabitable for humanoid lifeforms? Is it too cold, or deathly hot? The latter of which would foster appropriate conditions for the Tholians to consider colonization.

All of which started when PWE bought them. Doesn't really seem like a coincidence to me...

Of course, that's just my opinion. Who knows what's really the case?
Didn't I once see that PWE wanted STO "Aisan-ized" to attempt to make money off both the western (US) and Eastern markets?

Still at it. CBS "restrictions" fell by wayside with freebie Breen. Time to re-examine ENT and ToS at tier 5, repurpose the Connie into Sci and rebuild an Akira escort into the "NX". 6 "eras", spread evenly over all the classes...

You've seen PLAYERS say that, yes.

That's never been said by PWE or Cryptic and I think the truth there is considerably more nuanced.

Do correct me if I'm wrong, but isnt the "hourly event calender" mean it's time gated? Well the bonus, but then again people mostly play during the bonus times since thats the only time you can get a group together

I wouldn't consider bonus rewards timegating, no. If the missions themselves were only available at certain times, then yes.

Bonus rewards means, by definition, an addition to the standard rewards. And unless we're both mistaken, he did NOT say the standard rewards were only available during timeslots.

It's probably a lot like the Fleet Marks events: you earn Fleet marks anyway doing certain missions, but you get bonus Fleet Marks by doing them during a special timeslot. Not required to do, or even necessary, but it's an option for you.

And it sounds like something similiar here, to me at least.

I'm a bit more iffy on The Vault. Do you get ANYTHING outside the windows?

I wouldn't consider STFs timegated because you can still make progress outside the window. Likewise the Invasion zones.

You can only advance your Reman sets by playing in the Vault window event.

If it's like Nukara Prime or STFs, cool. If it's like the Vault, enh.

You do get 480 Dil when the event's not running, per run If during the event, the Datalogs replace the Dil instead
