Cryptic has announced an in-game event called Delta Recruitment for Star Trek Online. It starts April 2nd, and it involves progression-based rewards “including gear, week-long events, upgrade materials, and valuable numerics through both personal and community-wide goals,” according to a new press release.
The catch is that it applies only to new captains created during the event. Don’t fret if you’re a veteran, though; Cryptic is giving out new character slots so that everyone can create a Delta Recruit. The progression-based goodies also come with “an account-wide unlock variant,” the company says.
Delta Recruitment also features the invasion of an ancient race called the Iconians, who will drive “a story-rich wartime experience that will span several months.”[Source: Cryptic press release]
