First Contact Day Celebration!

  • The First Contact Day Event can be accessed through Star Trek Online’s recently released Events Tab.
  • Two ways to earn Event Progress! Compete with four other players to build and launch your very own Phoenix Rocket, or join Seven-of-Nine and travel back to April 4th, 2063, and participate in a brand new patrol surrounding the titular event.
  • Captains that earn 14 or more Daily Progress may then claim Event Grand Prize – a Temporal Vortex Probe (Universal Console).
  • For more information, please visit the “Defend First Contact Day!” blog at:

  • New Event Patrol: One Night in Bozeman
    • Included with the traditional model rocket building First Contact Day TFO, Captains will be able to participate in a brand-new patrol, “One Night in Bozeman”.
    • Access this limited-time content through the Event UI, or the Patrols Tab of the PvE UI.
    • The Borg have altered the timeline to ensure that they succeed in their previously-foiled plan to stop First Contact between Earth and Vulcan.
