Each week we’ll roll out additional rewards for the Featured Episode “Sunrise.” Last week’s reward was the Quantum Phase Torpedo. The final week’s rewards are the Quantum Phase Beam Array and Quantum Phase Dual Heavy Cannons. In addition, the first completion of “Sunrise” on an account this week will grant a Featured Episode Weekly Reward Box. This box gives your choice of an Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade or a Captain Specialization Point Box, which gives the character who opens it a Specialization Point. The Weekly Reward Box, Tech Upgrade, and Specialization Point Box are all Bound to Account, and may be freely traded between your characters. The Specialization Point Box requires the opening character to be level 50 or above.
While based off standard Phaser technology, the Quantum Phase Beam Array and Quantum Phase Dual Heavy Cannons are prototype energy weapons capable of triggering severe fluctuations in the quantum phase of their targets. The energy weapons can capitalize on these fluctuations by transferring a portion of the energy generated back to the firing source, draining the target’s shields while simultaneously restoring your own. Players will receive the Quantum Phase Beam Array and Quantum Phase Dual Heavy Cannons at a rank-appropriate Mark, and it is freely upgradable to Mk XII. Further upgrades will require Technology Points and Dilithium as normal.
These Quantum Phase energy weapons are part of the Quantum Phase Catalysts set. Collect pieces from this set to unlock powerful set bonuses:
Quantum Phase Catalysts Set
Phase Transfer Optimizations (2 piece)
This 2 piece bonus increases your Accuracy and doubles the potency of the Quantum Phase shield drain.
Quantum Destabilizing Beam (3 piece)
This 3 piece bonus deals heavy Phaser damage to a single target over 10 seconds. While active, the beam continually drains subsystem power from the target back to your own.
Next week we’ll reveal week three’s reward for “Sunrise.” Stay tuned!
