Honor of Ferasa

 

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus

The Foundry for Star Trek Online gives players a chance to create and share their very own stories with the world. These Spotlight Missions were designed by members of the Star Trek Online community and are great playable examples of what you, too, can add to the Star Trek Online universe.

This week’s spotlighted mission is "Honor of Ferasa" by sirboulevard!

Faction: Klingon
Level Requirement: 35+
Mission Summary: On the Klingon-allied world of Ferasa, the Ferasan Clans have always kept their problems to themselves. It is a matter of pride for the Prides to deal with their own. Now, one of the Ferasan clans have made plans for themselves that will affect not only Ferasa but the Galaxy at large. At the behest of the High Council you and two other Ambassadors must unravel the mysterious goings-on of the Ferasans before they unleash their plan on the Galaxy.

((To play this Foundry mission, log onto a Klingon or Romulan allied with the KDF character, open your Mission Journal (J), and click on 'Hail' under the section labeled 'FOUNDRY' in the "Overview" tab. You will see that this Foundry mission is spotlighted in that section.))

Warrior testimonials about this mission:

"Fantastic! Love any and all Ferasan content!" – @griffans

"Very cool mission, the maps were nice. And the Ferasans have an interesting culture." – @XelosTi

"It's a solid story with extremely humorous quipps. Well done!" – @shadow8803

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus

To celebrate our Four-Year Anniversary, from now until 10AM PST on Thursday, February 27, 2014, Q is hosting parties and giving away prizes on Earth Spacedock, Qo'noS and New Romulus Command. In addition to the festivities, we are also proud to release our latest Feature Episode, “A Step Between Stars,” with the talented voice work of Voyager’s own Tuvok, as played by Tim Russ! This special episode continues the thrilling Solanae Dyson Sphere storyline and will leave everlasting repercussions on the STO universe as you know it. Don’t miss out on the fun, and make sure to read the rest of this news post for a glimpse of what is in store for you, as well as our Anniversary Rewards Blog to find out what epic rewards await you.

 

Feature Episode – A Step Between Stars

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus

We are very excited about our newest special Feature Episode — "A Step Between Stars." It stars Tim Russ reprising his role as Admiral Tuvok (having earned several promotions since Voyager’s triumphant return to Earth) from Star Trek: Voyager. You have been asked by Dyson Joint Allied Command to assist Admiral Tuvok in thwarting the Voth as they attempt to spirit away the entire Solanae Dyson Sphere, and stop their plans to bring warp travel to a screeching halt across the galaxy. In order to better assist Tuvok, you will be given a chance to fly one of the new Dyson Science Destroyer vessels and get a taste for this Tier 5 ship before you earn your very own through the Anniversary Event Reputation Project mentioned below. BONUS!: After your first completion of this Feature Episode mission on each of your characters, you will be rewarded a one-time-bonus of 400 Qmendations to apply towards your Event Reputation project to earn your specific faction Dyson Science Destroyer (details below)!

NOTE: Captains level 10 and above can contact Subcommander Kaol via the in-game Mission Journal to accept the mission and discuss an operation to push back the Voth and support Tuvok in his mission.

 

Q’s Party Patrol

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus

Once again, Q is throwing the party to end all parties, but as busy as he is, Q always finds the time to amuse himself by allowing limited sub-creatures like us in assisting him with his planning. Find Q on ESD in Club 47, on Qo’nos outside the Great Hall and on the balcony of New Romulus Command. Talk with him to pick up his mission “Party Patrol” to help him round up his ‘q’ minions (only the great Q himself gets capitalization) at the Academies and earn yourself 40 Qmendations each day, as well as your choice of a Festive Party Horn, Dilithium Ore or a 4th Anniversary Party Box containing a mystery prize (random items appropriate for your rank).

ROMULAN NOTE: Stepping through the portal at New Romulus Command (min level 10 and ally chosen) will transport Romulan Captains directly to the academy of your chosen allies where Q’s party Patrol takes place. Upon completion of your daily mission, you can step back through when you are ready.

 

Dyson Science Destroyers

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus

During this year’s anniversary, we are unveiling a new Event Reputation project called ‘Collect 2014 Anniversary Event Rewards’ – when completed, it will reward you with one of three faction specific, Tier 5 ships, the Dyson Science Destroyers. These ships are a cutting edge fusion of Dyson Sphere technology and Federation, Klingon and Romulan startship tech. Powerful, versatile and equipped with new Secondary Deflectors, these ships will pave the way for a new line of vessels made to combat the many enemies revealed in this Feature Episode. Don’t miss out on “A Step Between Stars” or Q’s daily Party Patrol for your chance to claim the 1000 Qmendations needed to complete this Anniversary Event Reputation Project and claim your rewards.

NOTE: These Tier 5 Dyson Science Destroyers can only be earned by completing the event reputation project, and the box that it is contained in can only be opened once the character reaches level 40 [Rear Admiral (Fed), Brigadier General (KDF) or Subadmiral I (Rom) rank]. Ship stats are available here.

Dyson Science Destroyers

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus
Dyson Science Destroyer: Solanae Class

The Dyson Joint Command’s engineering and scientific efforts within the Solanae Dyson Sphere have yielded incredible results. The Romulan Republic, Klingon Defense Force, and Federation have all been able to adapt the astonishing technologies found within this artificial celestial structure to their own ends. The end results are truly unique starships that are inspired by designs found within the Solanae Dyson Sphere, but adapted to suit the needs of each faction without the required use of Omega Particles. Each of these starships is first and foremost a Science vessel, but is capable of entering Tactical Mode to significantly alter how the starship performs.

The Dyson Science Destroyers can be earned by completing the “Collect 2014 Anniversary Event Rewards” Event Reputation project while the 4th Anniversary Event is running.

Unique Features

Dyson Science Destroyers possess unique features not found on any other starship. Each of these are outlined below:

Tactical Mode

By default the Dyson Science Destroyer is a Science Vessel. However, activating the Tactical Mode ability the starship will transform. Many science systems will be disabled or altered while some tactical systems will become active. When activating Tactical Mode the following occurs:

  • Enables Dual Heavy Proton Cannon
  • +15 Weapon Power
  • +Turn Rate
  • +Impulse Speed
  • +Inertia
  • Lt. Commander Tactical Bridge Officer seat is upgrade to Commander Tactical
  • Commander Science Bridge Officer seat is downgraded to Lt. Commander Science
  • Secondary Deflector is disabled
  • Sensor Analysis is disabled
  • Subsystem Targeting is disabled
  • -15 Aux Power

Tactical Mode may be deactivated at any time to return to the default Science Mode, but doing so incurs a 60 second cooldown on the transformation back to Tactical Mode.

 

Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons [Acc] [CrtH]x2 (Very Rare)

These devastating weapons are only available when the Dyson Science Destroyer is in Tactical Mode and are built into the ship. They cannot be removed. When in tactical mode, the starship effectively has 4 Fore and 3 Aft weapon slots with one of the Fore slots automatically taken by the Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons. These experimental weapons are already balanced to do comparable damage to more conventional energy types, and can be further enhanced by Consoles which enhance Cannons and/or Proton Damage.

 

Solanae Secondary Deflector (Rare)

The Dyson Science Destroyer is the first starship to feature a secondary deflector, although it is rumored that all members of the Dyson Joint Command are hard at work at retrofitting all science ships to have the ability to equip this powerful piece of hardware. When this retrofit process is complete, this secondary deflector may be equipped on any starship with a secondary deflector slot.

The Solanae Secondary Deflector is leveless and levels up with the user. It is a heavily modified Deteriorating Secondary Deflector and it causes some Science bridge officer powers to drain a small amount of shield strength from their target and use it to replenish the Dyson Science Destroyer’s shields. This effect is always applied to the following powers:

  • Tachyon Beam
  • Charged Particle Burst
  • Energy Siphon
  • Tyken’s Rift
  • Viral Matrix

 

Solanae Overcharged Warp Core Mk XII (Very Rare)

This warp core provides the standard benefits of an Overcharged type Warp Core. In addition, it also allows the starship to create a Subspace Fold every several seconds. This causes the starship to instantaneously warp approximately 2 Light Years forward while in Sector Space.

This Warp Core is also part of the Solanae Hybrid Technologies item set. The Deflector, Shields and Engines from this set are rewards from completing the “A Step Between Stars” Feature Episode. The stats for this impressive space set are listed in the 4th Anniversary Event rewards blog.

 

Solanae Hybrid Technologies Item Set

This set's Deflector, Impulse Engine, and Shields can be earned by completing the Anniversary Feature Episode "A Step Between Stars," while the Warp Core comes pre-equipped on every Dyson Science Destroyer. Federation and Klingon versions of this vessel come with a Matter-Antimatter Warp Core, while the Romulan variant is fitted with a Singularity Core of similar design. Both separate core types function in this set. Below are this set’s bonuses:

  • 2 Piece Bonus – Cyclical Shield Conduits
    • Passive
      • +Shield Power Setting
      • +Shield Power (Bonus increased at low power)
  • 3 Piece Bonus – Structural Integrity Leech
    • Passive
      • Grants all of your Energy Weapon attacks a 1% chance to repair your hull for 100% of the damage they deal.
        • May only trigger once every 5 seconds
  • 4 Piece Bonus – Advanced Metaphasic Shields
    • Toggle (15 second duration)
      • Outgoing damage is reduced by 20%
      • Flight Speed and Turn Rate is reduced
      • Large Bonus Damage Resistance Rating
      • +50 Shield Power
      • Converts 50% of incoming energy damage into shield healing
      • Immunity to Teleport

NOTE: The C-store ships we mentioned in yesterday’s Anniversary Rewards blog come with neither the warp core nor the secondary deflector that are mentioned above. If you are interested in the warp core or the secondary deflector, especially to use them in the two different 4-piece set bonuses available (first with the Anniversary event and the second from the C-store bundles next month), make sure to complete the 4-year anniversary reputation project for each character.


New Bridge

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus

The Dyson Science Destroyer starships also feature a new unique bridge. While visiting your bridge, you will also be able to access your Account Shared Bank, move into a Small Craft, and contact different ship departments for Duty Officer assignments.

 

NOTE: The stats and features of the above ships are all subject to change.

 

The Dyson Science Destroyer Ships are on the cutting edge of Allied Faction technology, and will become a powerful addition to your starship collection. We hope you enjoy our upcoming Feature Episode “A Step Between Stars” and these new and amazing ships. Have fun Captains, and see you in-game!
