It is time again for Risa’s annual Lohlunat Festival, and with it some much needed R&R for Captains from all corners of the Milky Way.
From July 1st to July 31st, the residents of Suraya Bay and the Lobi Crystal Consortium have once again partnered to bring festival participants the highest quality wares. Among these exciting prices are the all new Risian Luxury Cruiser Vessel [T6]. A Dev Blog containing full stats and descriptions will be published separately, so keep your eyes open for it. This year’s celebration will launch simultaneously on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, allowing players of Star Trek Online to get into the summertime spirit regardless of their platform of choice.
As for other Risa activities, all of your old favorites from previous years will be returning, including Powerboard Races, the Biathlon, Horga’hn Hunting, Scavenging with Sovak, and of course the galaxy-famous Dance Party. Participating in any of the events will grant progress towards the Risian Luxury Cruiser Vessel!
Also as in previous years, we’re loading up the Summer Event Store with new prizes for you to earn. All of the following new store offerings can be purchased using Lohlunat Favors, earned by participating in various events around the island. We’re continuing the baseball theme introduced during last year’s event, to offer new colorful variants of some of the prizes you’ve loved seeing during previous Summer Events.
Players may access the Event Store to spend their Favors to purchase:
The Jupiter Station Stem Bolts have a maroon color scheme for their engineering theme.
Pick up some T-shirts to show that you know how to get down! Perfect for the Dance Party.
This year’s Impulsive offerings are just as fast as last year’s, but also just as difficult to control – all that speed comes with a price for the rookie pilot!
Pick up yours today, themed after the Jupiter Station Stem Bolts!
Returning this year is a new Team-themed Vanity Shield! As with the other Baseball-themed items, this one is themed after the Jupiter Station Stem Bolts.
A new Risian kit module showcases Risa's command of weather control and understanding of tidal forces.
Tsunami Generator: This Kit Module replicates a wave that rolls out from the creator, smashing into everything in front of it before crashing apart. The force of the wave knocks down creatures and injures them, and has a chance to temporarily disable electronic devices, such as turrets and drones.
A new kit frame from the Risian geoengineers, equippable by any career. This frame contains technology used by researchers who delve into volcanoes. While equipped, it provides rebreather functionality to protect you from toxic gas, and its heat sink controls grant complete immunity to fire!
The Risian Transcendent Caracal is a small animal native to the planet Risa. Closely related to the other caracals present on Risa, they are diurnal creatures with an even temperament.
Tribbles, a cute, round furry creature that purr when touched, have a tranquilizing effect on most races.
This breed has a bright pastel coloration that shows its fearless nature, and can be found in all manner of places as it seems to thrive on overcoming boundaries. Petting the tribble will grant a constant, passive small chance to resist and throw off any effect that would control you, as you refuse to be limited or constrained. If you're on a team with multiple people petting this tribble, the chances stack based on the number of people involved. This tribble is unafraid of Klingons or other species that have treated Tribbles negatively in the past.
