If u have multiple chars running this see the sig, I'm not that OCD to keep track of all that between doffing, repping, pvp
problem is since it only runs what 21days, there is hope they can add in a timer like:

I think a simple way to achieve this would be to get a "buff" of some sort when you receive a shard, so there's a marker on your captain that counts down. The idea would be the same as the XP boost you get during Q events, or the CXP boost during the Junior Officer Appreciation events. It wouldn't need to actually do anything, just last for 20 hours.
^This +10 Excellent idea

Good job dev team is a fun event just needs a cd timer i even placed 1st with my sci and engy toons now

Good hunting all

Idea, if they don't add the 20 hr.timer, use your captains log and make an entry. It times it for you. IRC.

"captain's log. Command had asked us to confront the crystalline entity. I knew that I would be joined by others but I did not know that it would be nine. I saw no peaceful way to end this encounter. I was, of course, not surprised to see the Tholians yet again but with the help of the utterly inefficient pick up group we were able to dispatch them and the entity. Unlike our last encounter over a year ago"

I ran the CE last night, got my shard.
I just ran it now and didn't. So I'm guessing there's some 20 or 24hr cooldown for it? It's bad enough I'm going to be stuck running it late in the evening because that's when I first did it (or miss a 'day' to do it earlier), but can we get a counter somewhere so I KNOW when it's ready?

Not everyone can do a 'daily' event every day at the same time. I wish the daily cooldowns were reset at a specific time of day to allow players more flexibility on getting these things.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!
