RRF Captain Cybyl’s synopsis of the Star Trek Online News for week ending 04/17/2016:
1. Season 11.5 dropped on Star Trek Online players on Tuesday, April 12th with in a blaze of glory! Skill tree revamp, Romulan admiralty missions, a new Strategist space specialisation were added per prior announcements.
2. However a number of unexpected surprises were added: free giveaways of starships, admiralty ship cards, specialization points, Na’kuhl lockbox loot drops with a chance of an awesome Na’kuhl timeship or improved crafting materials packages, new uniforms and other gear.
3. One significant surprise was the addition of a long requested feature from Captains who wanted greater control over the appearance of their ship: starship visual slots. Now STO players now have transmog options for their starships!
4. Na’kuhl Red Alerts were added to the game based on PvE queues rather than the free-for-all model of existing Borg, Klingon, Tholian, etc., Red Alerts. They are a huge, fun improvement with more rewards than the older Red Alerts. Gotta love ’em!
5. The new Featured episode, Temporal Front, is an action-packed time-travel, search-and-destroy effort to eliminate Na’kuhl time agents from changing the time stream. Their evil goal is to to eliminate the Federation and it’s allies from existance. Several short stories were released prior to this mission to supply back story and to prepare players for this epic task.
6. Lastly, a number of UI and player quality-of-life improvements, too numerous to mention, were released as well. For a complete list of these as well as the entire Season 11.5 scenario listings, please visit the Star Trek Online website .
7. For status of the AIE Classis Fleet Starbase, fleet mates are encouraged to check in on the fleet holdings tab in the in-game menu. Contributions of materiel and personnel are always requested to assist in building up the base and fleet holdings to their full potential.
8. Further news, patch release notes, forums, commentary, etc. are always available at . Players are encouraged to check in regularly.
