I only started playing about August, but am familiar with MMOs as I have been playing them several years now. When I heard about episode reruns and a chance to get some limited time rewards, it got me very interested in running them once again. I already reran the one that gives Shard of Possibilities because I think it's a fun little trinket.

In your opinions, which other episodes are worth the time and effort to go through; not only for the weaponry they offer, but also for nice toys like the shard?

IMO they are all worth running. The stories themselves are quite good and they rewards for each are useful.

Give each one a try. They are fun. I wish we had more like them in STO.

personally?

I went for the rewards for the 2800 (the shard)
and the Dividian related story, (wont spoil incase) but a VERY fun trinket to play with

The rewards for the breen and romulan episode reruns didnt really appeal to me apart from a small thing on the romulan rerun (at risk of spoiling... a Boff ability - transfer shield strength - which might be handy with these breen ships at the winter event ^^) I prefer the Bridge officers i chose by hand off the exchange, for traits/abilities

Lobis never appealed to me enough to rerun a mission for 1 lobi, the only toon i bothered with was my original/part time accolade hunter

edit:
Though this is only speaking for me, (this being a person who has had at least 12toons ..some who ment unfortunate transporter accidents) and have played most missions AT LEAST 15times |:.. well kdf/fed shared ones at least ^^

The good point? i know how to speed run em to hell

scavenger hunts, there a lobi hidden in each mission that is of a 'rerun' arc (normally 5 missions per rerun) like 20lobis in total?

in your mission journal, on the left side there is a border with the rerun/christmas event, click on the rerun and a list of missions that have lobis pop up

Bodly they rode and night of the comet basically.

Breen boff and what not might have different skins but remember slots they take up is a loss of "teamwork" and efficient" in space.

Sure if you have a few slots open and want something new to look at for ground missions go for the boffs but how often do you play away missions with your ground personal anyway.

Maybe run through them once on one toon just to get the story, since usually they're pretty good. Then go back with the other toons to farm for the special item. The limted-time items you want to pick up are

Ophidian Cane from "Night Of The Comet"
Reman BOFF from "Cutting The Cord"
Shard Of Possibilities from "Boldly They Rode"
Breen BOFF from "Cold Storage"

Of course if you want the 20 free lobi, you're gonna have to run all the missions.

The FE series are some of the best content in the game, and are worth doing even if they didn't give a reward.
