    On Stardate 95935.68, the Star Trek Online Away Team returned from its mission to establish first contact with players and Star Trek fans at Destination Star Trek Germany in Dortmund, Germany. It was an amazing weekend and the entire crew is glad that they got the chance to meet all of you. We had three panels during the event, showing off Star Trek Online to newcomers, and revealing more details of our upcoming expansion, Victory is Life. Thanks to Aron Eisenberg, and Robert Duncan McNeil, who joined us on Friday, and Chase Masterson, who joined us on Sunday, to speak about the work they’ve done on Victory is Life. You guys made our panels a heck of a good time for everyone involved. During the weekend we challenged players to compete in the Hodos System Shuttle Race, in the Delta Quadrant. Little did we know what talent we were going to meet during the convention. While Tom Paris challenges

    General: Romulan Imperial Minefield: Mission reward box at the end now shows the player all of the rewards received, not just the random item. Fleet marks awarded to all captains now, not just level 50+. The damaged asteroid mining facilities at Alpha, Beta, and Gamma now have small amounts of mines around them. Be careful! This is a minefield, after all. Resolved an issue that caused Romulan ships to fight each other at the end. There is now a small chance on each play through that a Romulan Republic ship will show up to assist. Resolved an issue that could cause players to get the "Go to Rally Point" button while already at the rally point. Resolved an issue that could cause the reward items at the end of the operation from being of a level appropriate to the player. Temporal Agents: Noted on Admiralty campaign progression that the goals apply only to Federation,

    When the cheers erupted, not every cup in the hall was raised. Just as she did after every performance, Juvat basked in the dissent as much as the admiration as she tossed back her bloodwine and dipped her cup into the vat for a second round. Klingon warriors may seek glory with their bat’leths, but a Loresinger wielded a much more powerful weapon: The crowd. Juvat was among the youngest and brashest of Qo’noS’ Loresingers, and that afforded her a certain amount of notoriety. Rather than spend her time preaching to the converted in the streets of the First City, she sought out taverns and bars and drinking halls, places where the crowd was likely unfriendly, if not downright hostile. She saw her role as one of changing minds, spreading truth, and maybe, on a good night, getting into a couple of fights. She knew it was a great performance when blood flowed as freely as bloodwine. She knew that

    With the release of the Gamma Quadrant and the war against the Hur’q in Victory is Life, we'll have a new battlezone – and a new way for you to participate in the skirmishes across the quadrant! As you’re exploring the Gamma Quadrant and completing missions, you’ll receive alerts about hot spots in various sectors, where the Hur’q are attacking, gathering resources, or building up their forces. You’ll see on the quadrant map all of the places currently under Hur’q threat. Head to those locations to engage in operations against the Hur’q. Completing operations against the Hur’q earns progress for everyone in the war, and earns you personal bonus rewards. The more operations you complete, the bigger the rewards! While you’re completing operations, you’ll see progress updated for everyone in the sector. The more people who participate, the faster you’ll finish all of the
