      • There is new Accolade associated with defeating 3 named ships that appear only this Sector's Red Alert.
  • New Romulus
    • This is a static adventure zone where level 50 players will be able to beam down to New Romulus and complete missions to earn Romulan reputation marks.

    • Added fleet marks to rewards.

  • Elite Omega Marks are now known as Borg Neural Processors.
    • They are now commodities.
  • Updated the art for the Defera Borg Cortical Array item with a new icon, to look like a cortical array.
    • Previously it was using an icon that looked like a neural processor.
  • Added Accolades for killing certain numbers of Species M-113.
  • The system previously known as the Azure Nebula is now known as the Yan Nebula.
  • Item procs now display properly when viewed in stores.

  • 3 Piece Set bonuses on MACO and OMEGA have had their cooldowns reduced from 180 seconds to 120 seconds.
  • Updated and clarified the tooltip for [KB3] weapons.
  • Resolved an issue where the tooltip for Sweeping Strikes would rapidly fluctuate.
  • Reman Space Set: Covariant Capacitance Cell, the 3-piece Bonus, has been improved:
    • Proc chance increased from 5% to 10%
    • Max stack limit increased from 5 to 10.
      • This allows for up to a total of 50% additional Shield Capacity.
    • The proc now raises Current Shield HPs by the same amount that it increases Max Shield HPs.
    • These extra shield hitpoints will be removed when the capacity buff fades.
      • This has the possibility of taking a shield facing offline, if it was already low.
  • Putting points into the Neural Neutralizer Duty Officer power will now properly increase the duration of the Placate.
  • The Bridge Officer power Medical Generator Fabrication will now scale up in healing power with the number of points invested.
    • The Captain version of this power has been upgraded to the value of the highest powered Bridge Officer versions for the appropriate Rank.

  • Fixed a typo in the description of the Ophidian Cane.
  • The description for Nanite Health Monitor has been clarified.
  • Added to the tooltip of Exothermic Induction Field that the ability has a 15 second duration.
    • This is a text change only.
  • Fixed typos in the description of Torpedo Spread.
  • All stores updated to use Provisions from Embassy projects, instead of using Starbase provisions.
  • Removed provisioning from the Duty Officer store.
  • Reputation:
    • Corrected a math error in the Tier-Up Reputation XP requirements.
    • Corrected all associated Projects that used XP levels as gating, to the corrected figures.
    • Omega Costume Unlock Projects now properly reward Costume Unlocks.
    • Cleaned up some erroneous Accolade text and grant expressions associated with STF Accolades.

UI:
  • Fixed a bug that prevented double clicking a row on the PvE Quick Play tab from joining the queue.
  • Updated the ship chooser UI.
    • The small craft and large craft have been split into two lists.
    • You are now able to set your preferred ship type on maps that allow either.
    • These changes can be accessed via the Ship Chooser contact.
  • Updated the organization of some Federation ships in the ship store.
    • The escort carrier may now be found under Escorts instead of Other.
  • Updated the Rewards information displayed in the PvE queue window.
  • Added faction-specific HP icons for Reman and Romulan faction NPC groups.
  • Improved the tooltip of the Reputation abilities.
  • Reputation abilities not yet unlocked now have additional edging.

Known Issues:
  • Embassy Projects and Unlocks descriptions and titles are all works-in-progress.
    • The final details of these are likely to change, or have already changed but descriptions have not been updated.
  • Zoning into New Romulus can sometimes cause the game client to hang.
    • Closing the client and re-zoning should resolve this issue.
  • New Romulus instanced missions:
    • Some do not yet grant the proper rewards.
    • Do not currently have a cooldown timer, for testing purposes.
  • The KDF has stolen some Starfleet shuttles and parked them in their Embassy hangar.
    • They will be confiscated prior to release.
  • Objects in the Embassy hangar are smaller than they appear.
  • Launching mines or hangar pets causes your power levels to spike briefly.

BTW the issue with launches causing power level spikes also happens when a D'Kyr launches a Tal'Kyr.

Does Acamar have Acamarians?

Will our brains get slowly fried if we beam down to the surface of Galorndon Core?
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Have you fixed all the STF reward bugs? Normals were rewarding 15 marks and Elites 20. Is it 15/45 now or possibly 20/60?
