PC Patch Notes for 8/16/18

By Ambassador Kael | Wed 15 Aug 2018 04:54:37 PM PDT


  • The Crystalline Cataclysm Event has returned for 3 weeks with a new reward and gameplay updates!
    • The Entity shards that it deploys are now immune to control effects.
    • Small Shards will no longer buff the Entity’s damage for the entire queue but instead, they will give the entity buff stacks towards a more powerful Energy Release after its Absorption Phase.
      • This change results in a potentially stronger Energy Release attack.
      • In response to that, we’ve added a growing AoE indicator to show the area of the Energy Release and how long it will be before it goes off.
      • The Entity Beam attacks no longer apply a Flight Speed debuff to players.
        • Instead, Large Shards on Advanced Difficulties will apply a Flight Speed debuff if they are able to explode on a player.
    • The Entity is now entirely immune to damage while in its Absorption Phase.
      • The Entity Absorption Phase is now 15 seconds long rather than 30 seconds in Normal.
    • Once the Entity has been destroyed it will explode into many Small Salvageable Crystal Fragments.
      • These fragments can be destroyed to gain 1-5 Salvage from each of them!
    • These changes will not affect the Crystalline Catastrophe non-event queue with the initial rollout.
    • For more details, please visit the Crystalline Cataclysm blog at:



  • Jem’Hadar Captains:
    • Klingon-allied Jem'Hadar can now play mission simulations of the Klingon House vs. House, Federation War, and Fek'ihri missions. 
    • Resolved an issue that prevented Jem’Hadar Captains from talking to their Security Officer for Duty Officer Assignments.
    • Gamma Quadrant missions are no longer skippable by Jem'Hadar Captains. 
    • Klingon-allied Jem’Hadar Captains can now wear the Honor Guard outfit.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Progress window to show Diplomatic XP for characters who aren't Starfleet aligned. 
  • Removed the uncompletable "New Duty Officers" accolade for non-Klingon characters from the accolade journal. 
  • "Stranded in Space" is once again turned off for Romulan Captains.



  • Resolved an issue which caused some NPC's to have significantly higher than intended resistances to power drains. 
  • Resolved an issue where the secondary attack on Leck's Knives would deal no damage to exposed targets in some cases. 
  • Added the ability to reclaim "Warp Shadow Decoy" Starship Trait if the player has purchased the Aelahl Light Warbird Battlecruiser and are not a Romulan captain.
