Star Trek Online gives away free hoverboards

WildStar and The Secret World aren’t the only MMOs getting into the Back to the Future spirit this month. Star Trek Online has its own promotion, as Cryptic’s game is giving away free hoverboards to all players who log in this week.

If you’re interested in getting this “Future Flyer power board” that is in no way infringing on movie copyrights, then you’ll want to snag it before it disappears on Monday, October 26th. Cryptic said that the hoverboard can be claimed in the C-store and has no plans to return.

The hov… power board isn’t the only giveaway that Cryptic is doing. The studio is handing out 12 free inventory slots today and has other gifts planned in the lead up to Season 11.

Well, I started the game a couple of hours ago, specifically to avail of the free inventory space (I hate inventory management). Assumed that logging in was all that was required to to get the reward, but no – I had to claim the free space in the store. By the time I realised this, the inventory space reward was no longer avaiable. :(

Armsman – I didn’t say that I wanted STO to start paying homage to the IP that Star Trek was based on. I said that I wanted STO to start paying homage to the IP that it’s based on – Star Trek -.
In the future you may wish to consider activating your reading comprehension sub-routine before reading my posts.

Peregrine_Falcon  What? You really want items from the IPs Star Trek was based on like:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Video_and_His_Video_Rangers

or

;)

Yeah, sorry. This isn’t a big enough bribe for me to log in.
If STO stopped paying homage to other IPs, and started paying homage to the IP that it’s based on, I’d gladly start playing, and spending money, again.

vicariousfan Apparently there was a flux capacitor in a Kremlin Lab in the latest episode Midnight. STO pays homages to others, there is a Verne Brown doff also.

BKone RaulAnthonyGonzalez Nice going McFly! Don’t you know hoverboards don’t work on water?

Except they do in STO. The Temporal Investigation Agent in Earth Spacedock explains why.

Thanks for the heads up.  Looks like it’s only today, so be sure to claim it on all your characters.
Weird bug I noticed, I am able to claim multiple hoverboards on my KDF characters… not that there’s any point in doing so!
More giveaways coming over the next few days, looks like.  Keep watching the skeees!
