Age of Discovery officially launched for Star Trek Online last week in a well-timed TV tie-in. To celebrate the launch, PWE has granted Massively OP a bunch of goodies to give away!

“Players can jump start their careers as a Starfleet Cadet with the Age of Discovery Starter Pack! This package offers unique rewards that will help Captains explore the Discovery universe from within. Most notably, it includes a new variant of the Walker Class that can be used as soon as players complete the tutorial. This brand new type of starship offers Hull and Shield values that continue to scale up with Captains as they continue their careers (all the way to level 30!).”

Do note that the cruiser can be used by only Discovery Federation Captains, and our codes work for PC accounts only. Read on to enter to win!

Not entering as I already have this, but just a heads up for whoever does win. The exp boost and inventory slots are a one time claim and bind to the character who picks it up. So make sure you grab it on the one you want to use. The ship, guns, and pet are all account claimable so no worries there. Just the exp and inventory aren’t.

I’ve already got mine as well, but good on ya for pointing this out about the pack, Capn.

Well, because of that you could possibly technically enter again even though you have it so you could claim the inventory slots on another character? Or does that not work?

Oh I’m just not entering out of courtesy so someone else who doesn’t have the pack can grab one. Didn’t even think of code stacking, heh.

As for the code itself, it wouldn’t work as the pack is unlocked as a reclaimable item for me. It doesn’t show up for purchase at all any more so I doubt the code would give me more slots.

Though I’m curious what would happen if you tried, would it just not validate the code or would it let you claim the main pack again on another character? From what you all are saying I’m guessing it probably wouldn’t let you enter it again at all and would say you already had that on your account.

I get that you can’t purchase it again on your main, but if you log on a different character does it show that the package is available for purchase at all? I don’t actually expect for you to log on and check, just wondering in case you see this reply and did already look :D

I guess it’s a pack a lot of paying players got right off and is mostly to help out the freebies, maybe it would be selfish to take otherwise, and yet curiosity gets the best of me and it’s a contest for everybody it just makes me wonder :D

I normally skip stuff I already own too, I’m just wondering if there would be any way for you to get the single character claimable again on another character. I guess it’s looking like the answer is no :D To know for absolute sure would help out for future contests and purchases too though.

So how it works in STO is that there’s 2 types of items in the shop. Single use and account wide. Single use is straight forward, buy and then use once. Single use items always show back up as purchasable again.

Account wide is an unlock for your entire account that you can only buy once. What this means is that when you buy an account wide and then switch to another character, the item is already unlocked in the shop as reclaimable with no option to rebuy it. It’s a “One and done” type deal so you can’t buy things over again on different characters. Things like ships and uniforms are the main ones in this category.

Packs like the ones in this giveaway are weird in that they have both. What happens is that when you buy this pack for the first time, the inventory and exp booster get dropped into your character’s inventory and then bound to that character. When I swap to another character, I can only see the account wide reclaim in the shop which does not include those items. When I reclaim the pack, it drops a box into my inventory which I can then unpack for the guns, pet, and title. The ship is automatically unlocked in the shipyard for all my characters.

If you want to take a look at it, you can check out my reply to Bree up above. I took a screenshot of what it looks like for other characters who have yet to claim it.

So yeah, stacking codes for account wide stuff doesn’t work in STO. If it was a single use only item then it would but not for account packs.

Yeah haha I see they’re a one time purchase type of thing only and then it’s marked as already purchased on that account even when on other characters.

I am still sort of wondering if you could fake force another purchase by the use of a code haha, but it almost certainly wouldn’t work. The account will have already have been marked as having purchased the one time purchase so it’s *extremely* unlikely.

Anyway it was sort of a silly thing to be curious about but thanks for indulging my curiosity and for the information :D

It wouldn’t work. You can only buy a n item like a starter pack once for an account. Once you have it, it won’t let you buy it again. The only claimable once item are a few extra inventory slots and everything else is them reclaimable by every character you have and any new character you make on the account – so rebuying it just for a few more inventory slots on one other character (IMO) wouldn’t be worth it.

Depends though, the inventory slots can be worth it if it let you actually have them on another character, but I’m hearing from you all that the way codes work it probably wouldn’t let you anyway.
