    "spine tingling", is it new? Because the one I played in the past wasn't "spine tingling", it was boring.

    I hate creepy storylines but just curious to know what is the "reward"? Is it worth it?​​

    Dr. Sibak (clone), a Rare level Ground Advisor and a Rare Mk XI Lirpa with Psi and Stun. It is pretty fast, a bit over 5 minutes. You can run it every 20 hours so if you wanted you can run it twice per Event.

    There will be another run of this at the end of the month during Holloween.

    I thought a reward would be the new "zombie" dance emote? How do you get that one? anyone?​​

    I recall that not being the case, that it was just long enough of a cooldown that you couldn't do it again during the event. I guess we'll know in a couple of hours.

    Edit: Be warned, the blog says it's on until 6AM PDT on Sunday the 15th, but it said that last time and the thing ended as it usually does at 6AM PDT Saturday the 14th. Maybe someone should check to see if there is supposed to have been a change, or fix the template for the blog to stop having the same error in it each time.

    I'm not sure I want to do this again. I have 4 of these guys already and they are all locked for some reason.

    They're always locked. I think most special ones from a mission reward come pre-bound.

    It looks like you'll have to do it again when it comes back on Halloween to unlock the new Zombie dance emote.

    it says it on the ingame event calander on the xbox one and that is starts at 7pm oct 12 and ends 7am oct 14, but as of this post it had still not started
  • eazzieeazzie Member Posts: 1,535 Arc User
    Hearts and minds spine tingling (laughs uncontrollably) yeah right. STO have in the past removed some pretty awesome missions. But every Friday 13th they still roll out this rubbish mission. Time for something NEW guys.

    I always enjoy this one, and run it on Alts who haven't amassed the reward multiple times yet. This was a generous gift from a Dev on his own time (not a paid assignment, but a whimsical little Friday the 13th gift), and as such, deserves thanks. He has mine, at least. And I've found the DOFF useful when working up my crews. Newer players may not have him yet, and he's better than most DOFFs you get via recruitment missions.

    Pardon my skepticism, but given your track record with the console version, I won't believe it until I actually see it.

    mission not showing up on ps4, despite being in the in-game calander 2am oct 13th to 2pm oct 14th and the area "Eta eridani sector block" that it references in the event description doesn't exist.

    Read up, we are not getting it now but SUPPOSEDLY for Halloween it will make it over to consoles.

    Well I may have been wrong about being able to run this twice during one Event. You could in the past with a 20 hour cooldown but looks like they may have changed that to 40 hours. I ran it last night and when I tried running it tonight at about the same time it showed I still had a 16 some odd hour cooldown. Were they afraid we were going to be able to pick up two Rare Mk XI Lirpas?

    PSA for all console players...

    Hearts and Minds will be available around Halloween since the PC players need time to Beta Test the content for you.

    It has always been this way and that is the reason PC gets updated first.

    It unlocks when you play 'Hearts and Minds' on haloween.

    For me that emote will be the sole reason to replay that mission. At this time i already lost count how many surplus clones i have pushed into the airlock or executed (i prefer the klingon way since that provides dilithium).

    It'd be nice if all the missions which reward doffs are set up similarly to the mission which rewards "Law"

    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    "It is available to play from around 6pm PT October 12th until around 6am PT Sunday, October 15th."

    Really?

    It was available a couple of hours ago. I even signed up for it and went through the dialog with Franklin Drake. Now? Poof! Gone. WTF?!?

    I was looking forward to at least taking a looksee and seeing if it was worthwhile. I sure hope it wasn't...

    It didn't change. I've been playing it since 2012 and it always had a 40 hour cooldown for an event that lasted 36 hours. You've never been able to play it more than once while it was active.
    Here's a link to the discussion for the 2nd run of the thing, back in July of 2012, where someone mentions the 1 day and 16 hour cooldown timer. I couldn't find the thread for the 1st run, but it was probably a Dev Blog post # something or other, and I wasn't going to dive that deep for it.

    This is the second time they've screwed this up in the blog post. It still said 6 AM Pacific time Saturday on the in-game calendar, but they really need to get everybody on the same page about this.

    It's almost as if I predicted this...
