Last week, we all were informed of the ways that events in Star Trek Online will be changing, moving away from Reputation and towards a progress bar that gets filled via participating. Now we have information about the next game event along with more details on how this new system plays out.
Additionally, there will be a Zen buyout option for those who would rather get right to the Dilithium rewards or who have more funny money than time. The base price will be 6,000 Zen, but earning Progress Points will reduce that cost by a percentage. This buyout option will even persist after the event is concluded, with the price scaled based on Points earned while the event was active.
The Mycelial Crisis will ride along with the Awakening update on September 10th for PC players.
