Patch 36 – Release Notes

Patch 36 – Release Notes

Commanders,

The Klingons and Romulans have ramped up their war machines in an effort to resolve their conflict over the mysterious hybrid, Roj. Time is running out, and the outcome rests in your hands. Part Two of the Duality arc expands on Ship Cloaking technology and its impact in battle. The Federation have found a way to acquire the highly controversial device, and are now prepared to run their own stealth operations.. New research opportunities have been developed to further increase the effectiveness of Cloaking, allowing for ever more devious plots and schemes to be hatched.

Introducing the Second part of the Duality Arc!

“We must discuss our plans to rescue the hybrid from Romulan captivity.”

Your last attempt at retrieving the hybrid Roj was a failure. Following a trail of breadcrumbs, you learned that you were too late – he was already in the clutches of the Romulans. Now, it is time to try again. 

Storming a secret prison in Romulan space is not going to be easy. Luckily, you have your choice of allies. Take your pick of the Klingons or the Enterprise Crew to help you in your rescue attempt, and make sure you succeed… or lose Roj to the Romulans for good. 

Trouble is brewing on the horizon, Commander… What are the Romulans planning next? How will the Klingons respond? Can you take things in hand before this escalates into an all-out war? Only time will tell…

The second part of Star Trek: Duality Arc in November includes:

  • New Second Repair queue!
  • An important update regarding the Territory Capture!
  • Four new Ship Cloaking Refits.
  • Twenty new missions.
  • Three new officers, including two Epic ones.
  • Ten new Research nodes.
  • A New Battle Pass! 
  • Nine new avatars and Four new frames.

New Second Repair Queue!

We heard your feedback, and we delivered. Today we’re introducing into Star Trek Fleet Command the Second Repair Queue! Following in the footsteps of second builder and second researcher, players will now be able to repair more than one ship at a time, getting their fleet back into the action faster than before.

Territory Capture – Important Update

During this month we will be making some adjustments to Territory Capture (TC) based on the feedback we received. TC launched almost a year ago, and is due for some improvements!

We will make the following changes to T3 territories in the upcoming November update:

  • T3 service buffs will be greatly increased to make them more valuable to the Alliances who activate them 
  • To shake things up, T3 service locations will also be moved to different Zones to give Alliances a chance to compete for them
  • There will be a week-long event around capturing new Zones in both November and December with extra rewards

Lastly, we will add more TC events down the road with more rewards and services.

We are looking forward to your feedback on these changes and about TC in general, don’t hesitate to join our Official Discord and share yours!

New Cloaking Daily Goals

Together with new Cloaking Refits, we’ve introduced two new Daily Goals! Both score off destroying an enemy while your ship is cloaked, and upon claiming a completed Daily Goal. Players will be able to use the rewards to invest into the research nodes to power up further.

New Research Nodes

Additionally 10 Research nodes have been introduced. Many of these research nodes will require a new resource granted by completing the new Cloaking Daily Goals. The first research will be available starting at lvl 26.

  • Increase cloaking duration for Klingon ships

New Battle Pass and New Missions!

A new month, a new Battle Pass. Part two of the Duality Arc will feature a Romulan themed Battle Pass, providing Officer shards, Research materials, cosmetics, missions, materials, and currency for a Prime Node. Progress through the Battle Pass by participating in events throughout the month. Unlock even more rewards by purchasing the Premium Pass!

Roj has been captured. You are going to have to storm a secret prison across ten new missions in Romulan space to rescue Roj before it is too late.

As tensions mount, Starfleet must make the controversial decision to abandon Federation principles, and utilise the cloaking technology in five new missions.

Tomalak is growing suspicious of his compatriot Sela, in five new missions. However, perhaps some doors are best left unopened?

New Additional L33 Borg Systems

We’ve heard your frustration around the lack of L33 Borg systems when hunting Borg hostiles, especially during event times. We are adding 3 new L33 systems to every server to help with the congestion players have been telling us about.

New Independent Miner Refits

The L52 Independer Miner ship, Nova, released last month, will be getting three new ship refits. One for each of the factions. Each faction refit will provide the Nova (and only the Nova) with a 250% increase in mining rate of the specified resource in their sections of space.
