Event:

  • Battle at the Binary Stars returns!:
    • Battle at the Binary Stars returns as a Featured Task Force Operation!
    • This event will last for 3 weeks and Captains can earn an all new reward!
    • This event version of the Battle at the Binary Stars Event can be accessed via the new Event UI, accessible within your Mission Journal by pressing on the “Events” Tab.
    • Battle at the Binary Stars returns updates:
      • TFO Rewards include a Choice of All Marks.
        • Instead of only including Discovery Marks.
      • There is no Cooldown – play it as frequently as you like!
      • Temporarily removed from “Random TFO” selection.
      • Normal, Advanced, and Elite versions all offer Event Daily Progress upon first completion, once per day per account.
      • Players must have completed their faction’s Tutorial, and chosen a primary Allegiance (if applicable) before being able to participate in the Event version of this content. Advanced and Elite versions also have level requirements of 50 and 60, respectively.
  • Rewards:
    • All players may complete the Battle at the Binary Stars FTFO in order to earn their Daily Progress once every 20 hours, in addition to TFO’s standard rewards.
    • Earn a total of 14 days’ worth of Daily Progress to become eligible to claim all of these rewards:
      • Universal Kit Module – DOT-7 Drone Fabrication (and Account-Wide Unlock for Reclaim).
      • DOT-7 Non-Combat Drone (and Account-Wide Unlock for Reclaim).
      • 25,000 Dilithium Ore (once only).
      • 3x Featured TFO Reward Boxes (once only).
        • Each gives a choice of 1x Specialization Point or an Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade.
    • Bonus Rewards:
      • After claiming the Grand Prize, you will unlock the option of earning additional Dilithium Ore each day, beginning at 8,000 Dilithium Ore for the first day’s completion.
      • Earning Bonus Progress each day thereafter will increase this reward by an additional 1,000, and we have increased the cap on how high this value may scale to a value that is unreachable during this Event (thus effectively unlimited!).
      • All Bonus Progress Rewards are rewarded a maximum of once per day, per account, and are immediately and automatically granted to the active character when the requirement is met.
    • Zen Buyout Option:
      • For players interested in instantly completing the Battle at the Binary Stars FTFO event, we will be offering an updated method for buying out.
        • Within the new Event UI, an option will be presented that allows you to purchase the remaining progress that you need, for a scaling amount of Zen.
    • A Second Chance:
      • Progress after the Event has ended will remain in an all new Second Chance interface, allowing the option to buyout rewards long after the Event has expired.
  • DOT-7 Drones:
    • Players that completed this Featured Event will be rewarded with two different methods of summoning their own DOT-7 Drones:
    • Universal Kit Module – DOT-7 Drone Fabrication:
      • This kit module fabricates a DOT-7 Utility Drone that will follow and assist you.
      • It will periodically attempt to cripple the damage resistance, damage output, and/or movement speed of nearby enemies by using Fuse Armor and/or Weapons Malfunction.
    • DOT-7 Non-Combat Drone (Vanity Pet):
      • This automated replica is only equipped with the most basic AI subroutines and should be incapable of causing issues even when exposed to hostile technology.
      • Obtaining these rewards on any character on your account will unlock the ability to reclaim each of them on other characters, via the Reclaim Store within the Events UI.
        • You may only reclaim this item on characters that do not already own one.

  • Players that still have these will be able to turn them in for Daily Progress and Event Campaign Progress.
    • Each upcoming eligible event will have an option to Apply Legacy Progress to the requirements present.
