Command the U.S.S. Franklin from Star Trek Beyond!

By Ambassador Kael | Wed 09 Oct 2019 09:23:35 AM PDT

From October 10th to October 31st, we are running a promotion that will provide an additional bonus when opening a Research and Development Pack.

When you purchase a Research and Development Pack from the C-Store and open it, you will receive either 10 Lobi Crystals or a Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack in addition to the Research and Development Pack.

We are excited to announce a new addition to this Promotional Ship Pack: The Freedom-class Exploration Frigate [T6]!

Everyone needs a hobby, and for many, that hobby is retrofitting and flying antique starships – the more classic, the better! A recent incident where one such hobbyist from the future took their prized starship back in time to attempt to view the exploits of a certain prominent Admiral led to a confiscated starship.

The civilian-grade technology of the future is potent.  The future tech the starship was outfitted with is comparable in effectiveness to current cutting-edge technology. The Temporal Affairs department has determined the tech won’t cause significant problems today. As a result, this starship has been made available for use. 

** Complete stats/abilities of the Freedom-class Exploration Frigate are included at the end of this Dev Blog – keep reading for more information!

In addition to this new starship, opening this Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack will give the recipient a choice of any Tier 6 ship found in any previous Research & Development or Duty Officer Promotional Pack. 

The player fortunate enough to win this ship pack will be presented with a choice of claiming a package containing this exciting new starship, or any one of the following ships:

Additionally, your ship’s maneuverability will increase significantly while this is active.

This console also provides a passive boost to Electrical Damage and Hull Capacity. It can be equipped in any console slot, on any ship. You may only equip one of these consoles.
