Mine Trap

Star Trek Online STO MMORPG F2P Sc-Fi MMO game

Incoming communique…

Mysterious deaths are being reported at the Romulan mining colony in the Hfihar System. The bodies show signs of attack, but there are no energy burns or open wounds. Strange marks have been found on some of the corpses, however, and bodies have been completely drained of sodium. The red rings on its face and neck remind us of a case that involved an extinct creature once found on M-113 that preyed on humanoids for the salt it needed to survive.

We don’t believe that a creature like that would attack a Romulan, though – their blood is copper based and wouldn't sustain the creature. But if someone used the DNA of the M-113 creature to genetically engineer a similar creature that could be unleashed on a population...

The colony leaders are reporting that these attacks are increasing in number. If we don’t intervene now, there may not be a colony left to save. We’re ordering you to the Hfihar system immediately.

In the 20-captain Mine Trap event, players will team up and attempt to save a Romulan mining colony from its impending annihilation. To do so, they must neutralize the threat, save as much of the colony as possible, and evacuate its civilians. Any Vice Admiral or Lieutenant General can participate in this cross-faction event and rewards are based on how many objectives are completed, including how much of the colony and population is saved.

Along with earning Fleet Marks, players will also be awarded with Romulan Marks – these are used in the Reputation System that we provided an overview for in this Dev Blog.

To participate, use the PvE Queue to join either a public or private queue. Mine Trap is a ground event that is always available, but if you play during certain hourly events (calendar updates to be announced at a later date), you will earn even more rewards.

We’re looking forward to you participating in Mine Trap when it launches with Season 7: New Romulus. See you in the queues!
