Honestly I'd be happy with having the Chell up for grabs again.

As for the 'zone' it could be the same map as before, but I wouldn't be surprised if they incorporated some of the summer event mechanics into it this time round.

would rather not see the chel grett again even if i wanted one as it is, the past two rewards were two different ships from two different species that were once allied. i expect to see a 3rd different ship for another race. perhaps cardassian keldon class? that appears to be a cruiser/science ship according to sto. it would also be a perfect excuse to bring more spiral wave weapons into the game as well as cardassian boffs?

I want the hologram of Professor James Moriarty to figure out he's been duped and returns with some sort of scheme.

There's so much STO can use from the series, it could give us content for years to come.
Lan - FED - Engineer - Android/Alien [Maddox-type, Soong template] - Fleet Dreadnought

Lt. Commander Data: And Commander, continue your work. When you are ready, I will still be here. I find some of what you propose... intriguing.

he could likely be apart of some featured episode for the feds exclusively one day, i doubt it would be enough for a winter event as its a plot too serious.

That's what I'd imagine, too. Probably the same zone, same minigames and the whole reward system tailored like the summer event. Winter Epohhs perhaps with multiple factions and the ship(s) moved into the rep system. In addition to that maybe a Romulan and a 2013 winter scarf.

IIRC, I read that one of the Devs mentioned in a podcast that there will be ships, so my guess is the Chel'Gret plus another Breen ship. Considering we had a cruiser (Ody/Kamarag/Ambassador), battlecruiser (Chel), escort (Risa) and carrier (Obelisk) as free ships so far, perhaps it'll be a true science vessel.

I doubt we will see a Cardassian ship, given that the devs have stated that they regret ever doing the Cardassian lockbox, as this gives them a headache if they ever go about actually making a Cardassian faction.

As for a new Breen ship, I doubt it. In my opnion, a Voth ship of some sort would make more sense, given that Season 8 just launched...

would actually make even less sense considering how low the general opinion is with the Voth on STO. although i do read the occasional "wanting a dreadnaught".

I think we'll see the return of the Breen Chet... w/e... and maybe a new... Breen... "escort" ?
