Star Trek Online is pleased to once again invite you to join us for the First Contact Day Celebration starting on PC, Xbox and Playstation on April 5th, 2022 and continuing until April 26th, 2022.

Join the festivities by competing with four other players to build and launch your very own Phoenix Rocket, travelling back to April 4th, 2063 to thwart the Borg’s efforts to prevent the historic event, or participating in a recreation of the Synth attack on Mars! Once per day, any activity will grant Daily Progress toward the Grand Prize – the Combat Pet - A600 Android, a deadly combatant that can be used to assist you in ground combat, unlocked for all characters on your Account! It attacks with deadly mining laser fire, taunts foes, and is quite dangerous in melee.

Keep reading to reveal what activities and prizes await those who join us to celebrate “First Contact Day.”

Manufacturing Dissent
Synth Wave returns! The Synths working on Mars have rebelled! Fight in orbit above the red planet, working with a team of fellow Captains to do as much good as possible before you are overrun in the Synth Wave TFO. The fate of Utopia Planitia hung in the balance, perhaps your insight will help us tip the scales if we are tested again someday.

Visit Historical Bozeman!
The Borg continue their implacable advance, only this time the battlefield is across time, not space. Temporal abnormalities have prompted Daniels to slap together an away team to go back to mid-21st century Earth where the Borg have altered the timeline to ensure that they succeed in their previously-foiled plan to stop First Contact between Earth and Vulcan.

Team up with Seven-of-Nine and discover what the Borg have done to alter the timeline, and then do everything you can to correct it. Just make sure not to do more damage to the timelines than the Borg already have.

Modelling Rocketry
Alternatively, if battling robot-zombies isn’t your cup of Earl Grey, you can participate in the good ‘ole Phoenix Rocket Launch competition. We hope you enjoy the friendly rivalry as you scramble to gather parts and assemble the best rocket under the watchful eye of enormous marble Dr. Cochrane himself.

Event Rewards
Completing either of these participating activities once per day, per account, will earn you a First Contact Day Badge Box. Opening this box will grant players the opportunity to choose between 17 Comm Badges as account-wide unlocks. Once unlocked, these immediately become accessible from any Tailor for any Federation character on your entire account.

Daily Progress is also earned once per day, per account, for the first completion of either participating activity. Keep earning Progress to earn your way toward the completion of the First Contact Day Event. Upon reaching 14 days of Progress, you will become eligible to claim the Grand Prize! This includes the following items:

A600 Android (Combat Pet)
Keep reading for more details on this reward!
First Contact Day Bundle – contains all of the following:
1x Captain Specialization Point (cannot reclaim)
25,000 Dilithium Ore (cannot reclaim)
“Launch Toy Rocket” Social Device (Account Unlock)
Holo-Emitter – Phoenix Shuttle (Account Unlock)

Combat Pet - A600 Android

As Synthetics, the A600 series were produced as both strong and efficient Androids in the vision of the fabled Noonian Soong. Their primary programmed directives involved repairing devices and electronics as laborers. Banned for a time in the Federation due to the devastating attack on Mars, their combination of brutal personal strength and electronic security vulnerabilities presented unique challenges to the ideals of the institution – challenges which were eventually overcome. This model, mostly preserved in its historical state, has been hardened against hacking attempts. It fights with the Martian Mining Laser and its fists, both of which are deadly, and its aggressive behavior taunts adversaries.

Launch Toy Rocket
Celebrate the historic launch of the Phoenix year round with this special device! Upon activation, it places a model of the Phoenix in front of you, which quickly launches in the sky.

Holo Emitter - Phoenix Shuttle
A special Holo-emitter for your shuttles and fighters that will make your ship look like the Phoenix. This device has an unlimited duration, unlike those provided by the Ferengi.

Bonus Dilithium Rewards


Earning the Grand Prize from this event for every character on your account is as simple as participating in any of the eligible activities over the course of its run. But remember that completing the 14-day requirement isn’t necessarily the end of the rewards you can earn! Additional Daily Progress also grants you scaling Dilithium Ore bonus rewards, after you have claimed the Grand Prize. You'll receive 8,000 Dilithium Ore for each bonus completion.



Buyout

Players unable to find the time to complete the Event, or interested in rushing to complete their progress, will have the opportunity to purchase the remainder of their Daily Progress using Zen at any time. The initial pricing for this Event’s buyout will be 2000 Zen, but like all other recent buyouts, the price any player pays will be discounted based on the amount of Daily Progress you have already accrued.



----------



We celebrate what we have, remember what we lost, and prepare for change to come. Wonder and challenge come in equal measure when the old order passes into the new. It begins with first contact.
