Long-time veteran players of Star Trek Online may well remember the team events of Gorn Minefield and Federation Minefield – queued activities in which your team tries to free captive freighters from clusters of mines, then drives off enemy ships in order to retake asteroid mining facilities, all capped with a battle at the end against a powerful enemy flagship. The Minefield events are some of the earliest queued content that players will see, as even low-level captains can play them.
Of course, the Minefield queued events come from the earliest days of Star Trek Online, and so it’s about time we put a little bit of polish on them!
As part of the release of our new landing page, designed to help players find interesting things to do, we’ve updated the Minefield queued events and turned them into a new, slightly different story: The Romulan Imperial war machine, always hungry for raw materials, has taken over a remote asteroid mining facility. Starfleet and Klingon officers alike can join together, along with allied forces, to stop the Imperial military from stealing refined materials to make more warbirds.
You’ll find the gameplay of the Romulan Imperial Minefield is substantially the same: Alongside a heroic Starfleet captain, move in on Romulan ship formations, clear out mines, rescue freighters, repair the mine facilities, and finally face off against an Imperial Romulan Scimitar-class dreadnought warbird.
To make this event even more enjoyable, though, we’ve made several changes, including:
We hope that you enjoy this chance to revisit one of our earliest pieces of content in an updated format!
