Junior Officer Appreciation Weekend
To those junior officers who work tirelessly in cramped Jefferies Tubes, perish namelessly on away missions, or provide the endless streams of reports and analysis necessary for a starship to function – this weekend is dedicated to you!
For this special weekend event, running from 10:00 am PST Thursday Dec 15 through 10:00 am PST Monday Dec 19, the following will be available:
- Speak with your duty officer contact in the academies – Lieutenant Ferra for Starfleet officers, and Lieutenant S’stas for KDF officers – to receive up to a 50% bonus to all duty officer assignment Commendation Experience Points (CXP) for the weekend. You need only speak to him once to have the bonus for the remainder of the event. The bonus varies slightly depending on the duration of the assignment.
- Receive a FREE special Purple quality duty officer with a unique active roster power by speaking with your duty officer contact. For Starfleet officers, this is a new engineering Exocomp duty officer; for KDF officers, it is a Reman duty officer.
- Duty officer packs opened during the event will each have a FREE additional Green quality or better duty officer inside. This only applies to C-Store purchased packs, not to ones awarded during rank-up or from recruitment assignments, and it applies only to packs opened during the event, even if they are purchased prior to the event.
We should note that Lieutenant Ferra has moved. After spending several weeks in the main academy building, his office has finished being remodeled. You’ll find him in the round building close to the water.
Also starting with this update, it will be possible to acquire additional reserve roster duty officer space from the C-Store, up to a maximum of 400 reserve roster spaces. This roster expansion option will continue to be available after the event concludes.
Moreover, this weekend will also see the introduction of new super-rare duty officers to C-Store packs. There are five new officers for each of the Federation and KDF packs. These include a Xindi-Aquatic, a Xindi-Insectoid, a Klingon Augment, a Suliban and others, each with unique active roster powers adding new functionality to both your ships and away missions.
Have fun, and try not to send too many duty officers to Sickbay!
