On the ground, players can acquire new holiday jackets in several styles, new modules, and of course new pets to follow along behind their captains. Meanwhile, players who just want a ship to fly will be able to earn the new Breen dreadnought cruiser, a new Tier 6 ship with a brand-new power-draining trait. The event begins tomorrow, so it’s almost time to start throwing snowballs not for money, but for terrifying new ships. And fun, we suppose.
Star Trek Online makes that a truism because players are not going to take part in this year’s winter festivities for anything so base as money. No, they’ll be taking part in it for all sorts of crazy rewards that cannot be purchased with money, which is completely different.
