Once again, the resort world of Risa opens up its beaches and its activities to visitors from all across the galaxy. The weather-control engineers have been hard at work, making sure that you get a golden summer sky, and touch-ups bring new color and detail to your favorite bungalows. In addition, there are a plethora of new rewards that you can earn this year by participating in all of the regularly-scheduled holiday activities! Come to Risa on all platforms from June 30th at 8am PT to July 30th at 10am PT to get your hands on these new prizes!


By participating in an activity every day you can earn the Cnidarian Defender [T6]. This magnificent creature is a space-traveling life-form that has agreed to work with tiny, planet-bound beings like ourselves so that we can explore the galaxy together!

In addition, this year the Risians have chosen to honor the Andorians with a suite of new rewards and devices that pay tribute to that wintry moon and its blue and white inhabitants. Starting this year, you can acquire...

Andorian Cold Weather Operations Kit Frame:
This kit frame gives you complete immunity to cold—an excellent advantage when fighting the Breen—and in addition is built with a capacitor to improve the defensive capabilities of your EV suits. When you activate an EV suit, it receives significant bonuses to defense for one minute. The capacitor then recharges for three minutes before it can activate again.


Andorian Summer Squall Kit Module:
Summers on Andoria are relatively pleasant... if you enjoy lots of snow and icy mix. The "summer squall" replicates these conditions by creating a swirling blast of ice, snow, and slush in an area. Foes caught in that area are slowed and lose friction, causing them to slip and sometimes to fall down. In addition, they suffer ongoing cold damage and reduced perception, as well as a penalty to their own ability to hit their targets (which reduces their outgoing damage).


Andorian Blue Bores Powerboard:
This high-speed, high-responsiveness powerboard follows the color scheme of the Andorian Blue Bores baseball team.

Andorian Blue Bores Floater:
This top-end floater has the color scheme of the Andorian Blue Bores baseball team.


Andorian Blue Bores Home and Away Baseball Uniforms:
Show your appreciation for the team that never quits on account of rain or snow with baseball outfits themed for the Andorian Blue Bores.


Andorian Blue Bores Vanity Shield:
Put your love for your new favorite baseball team on display with a vanity shield for your ship!


Andorian Caracal:
A genetically-tweaked caracal with Andorian characteristics, designed to help it survive in the snow. The Andorian caracal has the telltale blue coloration of Andorian natives, as well as a pair of sensitive directional antennae to aid it with navigation in snowstorms.

Andorian Tribble:
This blue-and-white furred tribble has developed an extra-dense inner coat that keeps it warm in the coldest of weather. The tribble reminds its owner of the deep cold of Andoria and the ushaan-tor duels, and gives its owner a small bonus to cold damage, melee damage, and damage resistance.

We hope you enjoy your Andorian summer on Risa and we'll see you on the beaches... hopefully without any unexpected snowstorms!

Become One with the Cnidarian Defender!

Shore leave has never been quite as relaxing as it will be during Star Trek Online’s 2022 Lohlunat Festival, starting soon on a Risa beach near you! This year’s Grand Prize for participating in the Event will be an entirely unique starship, of a sort never seen before – the Cnidarian Defender [T6]!

This living ship is actually a sentient and benevolent being, first encountered by Starfleet during the infamous “Encounter at Farpoint” mission, led by the U.S.S. Enterprise under the leadership of Jean-Luc Picard. Many members of this cosmozoan species have entered into a tentative agreement with The Alliance to serve as provisionary members, and are offering their services as exploratory and defense vessels to further this burgeoning relationship.

Earning the ship will require completing various activities available on the Risa Summer Festival map each day, and gathering enough Daily Progress to fulfill the Summer Event’s overall quota. Players may participate in any of the available Summer activities to earn their Daily Progress once per day, per account.

Once you have earned sufficient Daily Progress, you may claim this Starship for your entire account. Just open the Event Reclaim Store to claim a Cnidarian Defender (T6) for each captain on your account.


Cnidarian Defender (T6)
There is no computer record of any such vessel. Unknown ship. Unknown configuration. Not responding to hails. Our sensor signals just seem to bounce off.

Console – Universal – Cnidarian Defense
To facilitate the Cnidarian Defender's ability to revert quickly to its natural form in combat, a portion of the form of the "ship" must be dedicated to these specialized subsystems. Activating these will cause the saucer-like form to be shed, revealing its true form: The Star-Jelly!

Once in its natural state, it will lash out and stun nearby enemy starships, while simultaneously healing and protecting nearby allies. This form can be maintained indefinitely, but does severely limit maneuverability while also making its weapon mounts inaccessible. If the Star-Jelly is reduced to low health, it will automatically revert to its saucer form to protect itself.

This console also provides a passive boost to Starship Hull Restoration and All Damage Resistance Rating. This console may be equipped on any console slot, but may only be equipped by the Cnidarian Defender.

Toggle, Lasts Indefinitely until Deactivated
Deactivates Automatically if Hull drops below 10%
While active:
Weapons Disabled
Flight Speed and Turn Rate Set to 3
After 5 sec, then each sec, within 10km:
to up to 5 Allies: +Hit Points and +All Damage Resistance Rating for 5 sec
to up to 5 Foes: Heavy Electrical Damage and 10% chance: Brief Hold
2 min recharge

Starship Trait – Gelatinous Membrane
Activating any Hull Healing Bridge Officer Ability, or any Miracle Worker Bridge Officer Ability that targets yourself or an ally, grants the target of that ability the "Gelatinous Membrane" effect for a short duration. While active, this effect reflects a portion of any Physical and Kinetic Damage they receive back at the owner of that damage (pre-resist values), while also granting an increase to their Physical and Kinetic Damage Resistance Rating. This effect cannot be stacked, but will instead be refreshed by subsequent applications.

Note that not all sources of damage may be reflected, such as those that originate from indirect sources such as some Anomalies, Hazards, or Mines.

Activating Hull Healing or Miracle Worker Abilities grants to the target (or self) +80 Physical and Kinetic Damage Resistance Rating and Reflect 25% Physical and Kinetic Damage (pre-resist) back at Attacker for 10 sec
