    Question regarding the rewards gained by joining a fleet:

    Can you join a fleet before reaching level 30 and get the rewards upon reaching level 30, or do you have to wait until you've reached level 30 to join a fleet to get the rewards?

    EDIT: Other than that question, I'm sold on making a Delta Toon for these rewards.

    Q: What happens if I create a Delta Recruit, but do not complete all of the listed Tasks?

    A: Once a Delta Recruit completes their special Tutorial and receives their “Tesseract Communications Device” they will be free to complete the assigned tasks at any point in the future. Although Delta Recruit characters can only be created while the event is running, there is no time limit on the completion of the tasks, or their associated rewards.

    So we can still earn the rewards after the event ends? Even more sold.

    Looks good. A new Talaxian will be born and become my official crafter (with the Gumarre doff that I couldn't acquire on my main. Sigh.).

    EDIT:
    All equipment contained in these packs is Bound-to-Character...

    Any chance of making the above Bound-to-Account?

    Any new playable species during the event?

    I'd figure that tossing out one of these might create an incentive to re-roll.

    Me, personally, I'm leaning towards a Talaxian as a lifer.

    But I'd figure tossing something new out there might ease the pain of re-rolls. There are a few species that are probably at a point where they could get this treatment, like the Xindi.

    I have two comments:

    1: My main doesn't need any more reputation marks.

    2: Are there Delta Recruit-specific accolades, and, if so, can they be achieved by teaming with a recruit (for my main)?

    Otherwise, looking forward to this.

    Still going to have to look at it more closely when I get off work...but IF the rewards stay as listed of increase further, this is more substantial than I was expecting, particularly on the account-wide.

    I am still watching for things to be delivered at the promised levels and without ANY technical or other problems that would prohibit claiming them--and also NO retroactive nerfs as occurred shortly after Delta Rising dropped. Only then will I be willing to call this event a success.

    But I see at least some guarded promise. As long as it is not DOA out of the gate with technical or other issues, and rewards are not slashed, I will consider re-rolling one of my toons as a Delta Recruit.


    Just one question that is already apparent: is the Aegis DOFF going to be account-bound or character-bound?

    Damn you Cryptic for enabling me to be a Altoholic. :P

    Can you join a fleet before reaching level 30 and get the rewards upon reaching level 30, or do you have to wait until you've reached level 30 to join a fleet to get the rewards?

    Think of it as a single mission with two objectives:
    1) Join a Fleet
    2) Be Level 30

    Once both are met, the mission is complete, regardless of the order in which they are done.

    So we can still earn the rewards after the event ends?

    Clarification: Claim. Not Earn.

    Great Scott. Had I known this was coming down the pike, I would've held off on making my Fed Engie. You could make a whole new main character out of this.

    One more thing:

    With the "temporal" nature of many of these rewards:

    Any chance for a revival of the Temporal Lockbox and/or special bonuses for the consoles when outfitted on a timeship?

    I'd think in particular that Temporal Negotiator and/or Temporal Insight improving the Manheim device to not pass on so much damage (or any damage) would be very welcome for timeship captains.

    I wonder if the Photonic Engineering Bridge Officer will be used as an excuse to update the Photonic Science Bridge Officer and that make that one fully customizable.

    Other than that, this looks sweet.

    The Delta Vanguard tech upgrades alone make this well worth it (and make me very seriously considering purging my alt list and filling it up with almost nothing but Delta Recruits).

    Hey question: How much Dilithium is "Only"?

    Some of the rewards don't list a number, they just say "Only Dilithium".

    Temporal Negotiator - Making it a device, priceless.

    Paradox Corrector - Lol, 10 minute cooldown, really?

    Improved Temporal Insight - Awesome, now I just hold off on using HE until someone tries their alpha strike. Combine with the shield trait and a shield heal to say :-P to your aggressor.

    I thought where you were going, you didn't need pikes, Doc. Anyhow, it came off the kirk spire, so you should have known. And if I could fit in anymore allusions and double entendres, I'd be Q.

    Trade them in for Dilithium Ore.
    2: Are there Delta Recruit-specific accolades, and, if so, can they be achieved by teaming with a recruit (for my main)?

    There are two new Titles that can only be earned by Recruits, and are not account-wide. Other than that, I don't believe any new Accolades were added.

    I suspect you will need to get to level 30 to qualify, but whether you can mechanically not join before that? Good question. The level limit seems to be in place to avoid people creating [as many characters as the account allows] and cash in big. You can still do it, but you need to make those 30 levels, which is time in which you maybe could have earned the Dilithium on a main...

    I think my wording was a bit clumsy here. What I was trying to get at was, will the DOFF bind to my Delta Recruit character only, or will he be account-bound to where I could move him to my main crafting toon?

    Well was hoping Spec points would be moved back to start at 10 and make those account wide, but this isn't bad either. Certainly more entertaining than the usual grind.

    Looks like a formatting error.

    That should be read as:
    "10,000 Reputation-Only Dilithium"
    or
    "50,000 Fleet-Only Dilithium"

    Yeah, it is. Unlock the rewards as your Delta Recruit which you can claim on any other character, even ones made after the event.

    I'm afraid I'm having a hard time seeing how that's unclear.

    Well, someone insisted you guys were working on a temporal specialization a while ago. Hope you guys are actually working on some science specialization to be released at some point, because he could have been referring to this.

    With the Delta Recruit are we required to play through the tutorial or can we skip it?
