Star Trek Online kicks off a new event with a free Tier 6 ship coupon as a reward

Yes, any ship, and yes, that's a big deal

It’s hard to find a single player in Star Trek Online who would say no to a free Tier 6 ship with no strings attached; these things are valuable. That’s why they’re available in the game’s cash shop, after all. But the new Task Force event that’s running in the game with Operation: Riposte is giving you a chance to buy one of those ships for no money down or… well, ever. Earn 3,000 points on the event track, and you get a coupon good for a T6 ship completely for free.

Of course, that’s not going to happen tomorrow; there’s a reason the event is running until the fall, and as it stands you can get 50 points of progress once per day through Operation: Riposte. (For those of you bad at the math, that’s 60 days to get that coupon, or basically getting that one task force in once per day every day for two months.) Still, there are other rewards available from this first major offensive in the war against the Klingons in the 23rd century, and players can even check out the lore about Priors World on the official site. So you’re still getting plenty out of it along the way to the free ship.

yay~ looking forward to this; not so much for the ship unlocks but some new stuff… and even though i didn’t get to log on trek recently much after my stupid-busy schedule for the last half of 2018, and did not get to sort my characters much, i WILL BE READY…. by stealing grumpo’s ship setups since he constantly makes these easy peasy but effective ship builds using generic blue mk xii and episode reward gear which is all readily available for any t5-u+ tier ships…. and since i sorta understand the mechanics of the game (the harder thing about sto to grasp)… i should be smacking my enemies with a fierce … um salvo. fierce barrage…. no, fierce RAWR

prolly my favorite thing about trek grind is that it is a once a day deal for like 20-minutes-at-most activity… though, 14 out of 21 days looks way more than it should be but am chill with it

though i can understand why dilithium farmers get antsy because they want/need to do it across all characters, but am just in it for the doohikeythingy, which is lately and THANKFULLY an account unlock for these events

The TFO events run for three weeks at a time (IIRC). So you pretty much can’t miss more then a couple days and expect to get enough coupons. That’s a pretty tight grind, though the prize is a free cash shop ship. I hope the new TFOs are fun. At least we’ve been assured the next one isn’t a reskin like the last one.

and that’s why spreading the event over months and months is really dumb.

A free ship for a lengthy grind. No thanks. I used to get excited about these ships but not anymore. The DPS players are putting out make the game unbalanced. And the game is truly for whales. So unless you are willing to spend a lot of money it’s not worth it.

With enough cash and waiting for sales, anyone can buy all the ships…heck i got 70% of em roughly and im in no way rich(dil farming and the lifetime stipend helps). But I’ll admit, once i got around 30 t6 ships, the drive to get all of em kinda died, you simply dont have the need to have all those t6 traits.

I already got no trait slots I want to remove on my main(6 chars total) but I just make ship projects to keep my interest up. I dont move gears to new ships but instead I work new different sets from the ground – just for fun.

I returned to the game about three years ago and turned into the kind of “whale” FTP MMOs love. I’ve spent quite a lot of money on the game since then. I don’t have all the lockbox T6 ships. just the C-store ones.

I see, I play a little bit over a year now but first tried the game back when klingons were a pvp race and you needed a fed toon like lvl 20 to unlock them and then checked it out several times but only visited. The last 1+ year I had stayed into it though. For my main engineer I love carriers and I got him a Sarcophagus and an Advanced Obelisk as main ships

Game is GORGEOUS! The people are friendly, and unlike most FTP MMO’s people are actually chatty and will talk to you about almost anything. It’s my go to log in if I just feel like wasting time and chatting up the news of the day or whatever.

I just can’t play to progress anymore. The curse of the lifetime membership I guess.
Every mission is so … samey. After you have done everything, doing it again on an alt is like pulling teeth.

Still the best dance parties in gaming.

Well, guess I’ll be getting that Europa for my Disco character after all.

Its sure grindy and lengthy but I like they give us choice of T6 ship instead of a specific one
