Now, fast forward to LoR - Klink are calling Fed using battlecloak = trolling??? Whatever happened to your supposed anti-cloak tactics that many Klink were bragging about prior to LoR release, eh? Using your logic, Feds should just go to Kerrat to be prey that can't fight back? On what alternative universe do you live? My mission there is to protect innocent Federation farmers who will otherwise be harassed or even killed by Klignons who don't believe in fair play, as evidenced by your hypocritical statements here. What are you going to do when Cryptic eventually give Fed access to Aceton Assimilators in a box for very cheap amount of EC? Threaten to boycott STO? I think the Feds will have a celebration party on the Federation planet of Risa to celebrate such eventuality.

If I get attacked by someone that cloaks. I'll just do what I did again and log onto my sci brel made to deal with cloakers and keep decloaking them and then keep using doffed VM and SS on them. It will only work once on me never again will I put up with being trolled like that.
So it was you in that super fast Bug ship that I blew up, sorry I am bad with names. Well that just shows your set up of having 3 evasive doff, super fast speed of 150+ and 2 X APO and 100% uptime against movement debuff doesn't work against anyone who knows how to counter it. If my web mines caught you cold, I apologize, nothing personal. It was a necessary evil to ensure Klignons do not harass innocent Federation players there who have no interest in PvP and simply want to farm in peace. Once a few Klignons are blown up, the rest just went into hiding and become quiet - you know the honorable type - hide & run at first sign of trouble. As for the "Sci Brel", sorry to tell you that's now a weaker version of the T'Varo. I have no fear of T'Varo, why should I care about a weaker version of it? That doesn't make any sense. See, you need to realize Klingon BoP are so much weaker than comparable Romulan ships that the old ways simply don't work anymore. As for trying to decloak me, good luck with that : Rom Captain + 4 X Rom Boff with Superior Operative & Subterfuge + 1 X Reman Boff with Superior Infiltrator & Subterfuge + Aux = 125 There is no way a Klignon with a 2nd tier anti-cloak ability can do anything to this kind of perfect cloak. The stealth skill is + 1100 with the total stealth being over 5700. On the other hand, my Starship sensors = +100 and have the Starfleet technology, Tachyon Detection Field in the inventory in case it's necessary. With Sensor Scan, I decloaked an unsuspected Klignon yesterday and blew him up within 5 sec, which led him to cry: "Sneaky!" As if a Klingon wouldn't do the same in this situation?

As for this Risian Corvette, no self-respecting Klignons should be misappropriating this Federation vessel. Cryptic wants to make money from as many people as possible, no one can't stop them. That said, Klignons trolling on a Federation vessel, then they cease to be Klignons.

Sorry for the delay in getting these questions answered - been a busy day!

Here's a quick FAQ that should address most of the questions that've been raised in this thread:


Q: Will the Floaters work on other maps (like ESD, e.g.)?

A: No. The Risian Floaters are only able to be activated while on the Risa Resort event map. We have no plans to allow personal flight on any other maps, using these devices.


Q: Will we be able to put the Subspace Wake Console on other ships?

A: No. This console is restricted to Risian vessels.


Q: I will not be able to log in enough to complete the Ship Project. Can I still get the Ship?

A: For players that cannot participate in the daily "Flying High!" mission sufficient times during the event, there remains the option of buying out the Event Project and obtaining a Risian Corvette.

As stated in the Dev Blog, additional Lohlunat Pearls can be purchased using Lobi Crystals, at the price of 5 Lobi for a pack that contains between 2 and 6 Pearls. This puts the cost of the Risian Corvette at between 835 and 2500 Lobi Crystal. However, every single day that you can complete the "Flying High!" mission, this cost is drastically reduced by earning a lump sum of 40 Pearls.

For example, if you only participate 18 days out of the 25 required, you will have earned 720 Lohlunat Pearls. Purchasing the additional 280 will set you back as little as 235 Lobi Crystals.


Q: Will this overhauled Risa map remain accessible after the conclusion of the Lohlunat Festival?

A: Our current plan is to allow this map to remain active after the Lohlunat Festival ends. All of the associated Summer Event activities will stop being available, as will free access for Klingons, but the destination can still be used as a social map by Federation and Fed-Romulan captains.

* NOTE: This may change, and isn't currently set in stone.


Q: Does the Risian Corvette have a custom bridge/interior?

A: No. It will come fitted with Federation or Klingon interiors, depending upon your faction (or choice of ally, for Romulans).


Q: Will there be special doff missions that reward items like during the Winter Event?

A: No. There are no Summer Event Duty Officer Assignments.


Q: Will there be a Starbase Project?

A: It will not be available at the release of the Summer Event, but there will be project made available soon. The exact release date of when this Special Project will become available is not yet finalized, but we hope it will be in the next couple of weeks. It will cost Lohlunat Favors to complete.

That sounds promising, Could this be turned into a proper social zone with relevant vendors and consoles? Also, could this mean that the Winter Wonderland and Utopia Planitia maps become more permanent locations?

Whilst I am looking forward to the summer event, I must say it doesn't seem like it'll interest me as much as the winter event did.

The ship is "meh" at best, we've already got a LOT of different escort vessels, I don't really need another one, especially one that looks like it belongs in a pod race. If it wasn't going to take 25 days of taking part in the event then I would perhaps get it just to have it, but I really can't be bothered with the additional grind I'm afraid to say.

The jet pack is by far the most interesting item I can see, though since it serves no purpose other than on Risa, it's again a rather pointless item that I may or may not bother picking up with my toons.

Really the only thing I want is the clothing, yet even there we have the let down of no swimwear and the sunglasses not working on several species that I use.

Don't mean to sound totally negative so I'll finish on a positive, YAY Risa no longer looks like a washed up waste of space.

Well, you just made me a happy camper, Borticus.

I understand that it's not set in stone yet, but I'm happy you intended to leave the ehnancements on Risa. If it helps to definitely decide on it, I honestly believe that all of the players would prefer to have the new additions as permanent on Risa. I imagine a lot of effort went into creating it, so it would be nice to have it for the players' enjoyment all year long. Just stick a bank/mail/exchange in it after the summer event like you just did on Nimus III and watch the rebirth of the Risa social zone.

I should note that in terms of services, the Risa map has a tailor, a GPL vendor, and bank/exchange access.
