Patch 40 – Release Notes

Commanders,

Introducing the second part of the Rules of Acquisition Arc!

“Let’s just say I have a vested interest in your current situation. I can help you.”

Your back is against the wall. Fess and the black market network has outsmarted you at every turn, and now they have your ally Arrock held hostage. Though the situation looks bleak, you receive help from a surprising source: Quark. Quark plans to pursue Fess, after Fess and Arrock stole Quark’s prize ship, the D’Vor Feesha, before ever meeting you. With his contacts and resources, you manage to put together a plan to stop Fess and potentially bring down the network for good, with the use of a dangerous computer virus that can leave their internal systems and data in ruins.

Of course, it won’t be easy. Both you and Quark are on the network’s hit list. Can you stay one step ahead of them long enough to enact your plan, or will they cut down another one of your plans?

“Even after all the times we have encountered them, I still do not think we understand just how vast and powerful they are…”

The second part of Rules of Acquisition (RoA) includes:

  • Fifteen new missions
  • New type of Events: Cross-Server
  • Two new Officers
  • New Research
  • New Triskelion Torpedo Projectile
  • Seven new Avatars & three new Frames

New Missions

10x new missions conclude the Rules of Acquisition Ferengi Arc! Quark aids you in taking down the malicious black market network that’s been causing chaos. But never forget Rule of Acquisition 200: A Ferengi chooses no side but his own. Quark’s ultimate goal: recover the D’Vor Feesha!

5x missions introduce you to Onash, a Ferengi arms dealer who you’re contacted by who has a very lucrative contract…
