It’s almost time for our Eighth Anniversary celebration! While we’ll have more details later today on the brand new episode you can experience, and the brand new ship you can earn, we know you want details on how you can get involved with the party. From January 23rd to February 22nd, you can take part in our annual anniversary festivities! Here’s how they work:
Q is up to his annual shenanigans. You’ll be required to stabilize Omega Particles found in various social zones in Star Trek Online. Talk to Q to get the mission “Omega Stabilization (Daily)” and you will be given three zones to visit where you must stabilize an Omega Particle by playing a minigame.
The minigame is simple - Omega molecules will fall in from the left in one of four channels. Captains will use either the keyboard or the mouse to move the capture device into the correct channel as the molecule hits the right-hand line. The more molecules you capture, the more Omega molecules you’ll safely dissipate, and the more points you will score.
Q doesn’t care how many points you score, just that you completed the minigame in order to receive credit for his mission, but the points do matter. The more points you score, the better chance you have at scoring better quality Omega particle remnants which can be used with the R&D system to craft special Omega Upgrade Kits.
Omega Traces come in the three different colors of the Omega nodes themselves. Using the R&D system you can combine 1 of each Trace into an Omega Sliver. You can them combine three Omega Slivers into an Omega Shard, and three Omega Shards into an Omega Fragment. Three Omega Fragments can then be combined into an Omega Upgrade Kit.
Completing the minigame will score you a single Omega Trace at the very least. The better you score, the greater your chance to win Omega Slivers, Shards, or even Fragments.
But that’s not all the problems Q is bringing to you. Once a day, you can complete the mission Party Patrol, and help Q round up tiny little versions of himself running around Starfleet Academy and the Klingon Academy. Catch them, and they’ll make you play a devious game. Win to earn great rewards, like Dilithium Ore, Reputation Marks, or Fleet Marks!
It wouldn’t be the anniversary without a brand new Party Popper to earn. Unlock the power of protomatter as a special reward for completing the Omega Molecule Stabilization Events! Check it out:
By participating in the anniversary celebrations, you can unlock nine brand new emotes! What do you think of that, random Orion warrior?
He’s so happy.
We’ll see you at the party!
