New Features:

New Featured Episode: Scylla and Charybdis

  • The new Featured Episode “Scylla and Charybdis” has been added to the Featured Episode tab in the journal.
  • Travel to the Alpha Quadrant and await a hail from command to take the offensive against the Tzenkethi!
  • This episode is available for level 10 Captains and above.
  • For more information, please visit the “Scylla and Charybdis” blog at:


  • Re-Engineering gives the ability for players to re-roll some mods in order to craft and modify certain pieces of Equipment to greater satisfaction.
  • A new resource has been added to the game to make this system work: Salvage.
    • Salvage is rewarded to Captains from salvaging equipment obtained from loot drops.
    • Salvaging a piece of equipment will destroy it and reward an amount of Salvage based on the equipment’s Mark and Quality.
    • Salvage cannot be traded between characters.
      • The amount of Salvage the captain possesses may be viewed on the Assets tab of the inventory.
  • The cost of Re-Engineering a piece of equipment will be dependent on how many available mods the player has chosen to unlock.
    • The overall price to randomize increases with each mod that is unlocked, but the cost-per-mod goes down.
      • This translates as a cost efficiency bonus, at the cost of additional randomization.
  • For more details, please visit the Re-Engineering blog at:


  • All Anniversary Ship Event Reputation Projects from past years have had their inputs updated to require 8th Anniversary Prize Vouchers.
    • If a player still have ship projects from previous years slotted, you may participate in this year's event to complete those projects, or cancel them to make room for this year's project.

    • Fleet Colony: Attaining Tier 5 in the Main Colony Track now grants all members of a Fleet access to the Lukari Dranuur Scout Ship [T6].
