    A quick question, can you only claim the weekend token provided by this event once per day, per account? I claimed it on one character, then ran the event on another character and only got dilithium and marks, no additional token for the second character? If so might i respectfully suggest when announcing the event it is stated, or in the description of the event it could be stated?

    The voucher cooldown is account wide. You can see by clicking on View Cooldowns in the PvE queue window.

    I just did this and a wave of Fed ships blew up the Kobayashi Maru and i didn't get any marks or the Weekend Event Voucher. So if we lose on the Fed wave we get nothing?
    I had that happen on wave 14. Are you sure it was your first run for the day?

    Haha, I did it and lasted to wave 14, my ship took minimal damage, but I have no idea how many times my team mates died... Well, except the guy in the Sheshar, he did pretty good.

    Yeah i just got on. The pic i had showed the voucher was available but i just got out of queue so the queues were red on cooldown. But i did it again and lasted past wave 4 and got the voucher the next time around :)

    I tried it, between rubberbanding every single second and lag that caused my powers to activate 3 seconds or more AFTER I clicked the button(or pressed the appropriate keys) Im shocked I only died once and we made round 3.

    As I said after Sompek finished and again the day they announced this, the Weekend Vouchers are good for all Weekend Events. If you had any leftover Vouchers from Sompek you can use them here.

    Gonna have to do this thing a minimal amount of times, just enough to get the account unlocks. Too much stuff going on graphics wise for my poor laptop to handle. Lag is so bad it looks like a GIF from the 1990s

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options, letting the toon complexion affect the entire body, not just the head. Also a true RGB color picker applied to all costume and appearance options, which would allow for true appearance customization and homogenous colors instead of "this same exact color looks vastly different on two different pieces."
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts. For obvious reasons this would only apply to standard ground weapons.
    4) For the love of Q please revamp Plasma Ground Weapons. They look like demented Supersoakers right now.
    5) True Vanity Impulse and Deflector effects similar to Vanity Shields.
    6) A greater payout for hitting T6 Reputations. Currently it takes more time and resources to get from T5 to T6 than it does to get from nothing to T5. Make that grind really pay out at the end.
    7) Mirrorverse Refugee event similar to AoY/Delta/Gamma, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    8) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    Well I am glad I chose wisely with which toon to get this on.

    The speed round was a really bad idea to have in.

    It starts and BOING BOING BOING its spacehopper online.

    Tzentch round seemed to be one of the harder ones when they all shoot off the bombardment at the same time and the maru drops.

    Announcer starts off aussie then her accent seems to wander off somewhere. BUT at least its not some strange scots like whatsherface on ds9 for the jem hadar or the AoY scotty who is way too clipped.

    Not Aussie. New Zealander. The Maori facial tattoos on her chin give it away.

    I like the "Independent Faction " idea but I also would like to see a faction that seems to simply disappear during the storyline..The Romulan Star Empire. Sure they're evil but who doesn't have a little darkness in them? What happens to the Empire? Does Sela regain control? Does she disband the Tal'Shiar? does the Tal'Shiar take control? What happens during her abduction and the empire is in chaos? How does the Romulan Star Empire fit into events surrounding the spheres and the Romulan Republic? I'd like to play as a Imperial Romulan Officer

    I didn't notice, but is the token toon bound ?
    I earned the token on my weakest toon and am unsure if I should bother using my better toons because if I earn it on one of them, the account cooldown for the event may keep me from earning the prize if I cannot move the token over to my original winner toon.

    Anybody know ?

    The token is account-bound as of this morning, and the implication from the patch notes is that it'll remain account-bound. But we'll have to wait and see after today's patch whether things turn out as intended this time. Apparently the tokens and weapon reward unlocks will be account-bound, but the weapons themselves will be character-bound after each toon claims them.

    will see if I can move it to the account bank after I earn another one, but I'm uneasy about gambling a 20 hour cooldown if they bork the 'fix' and I earn the token on a different character. Cancelling the project may also be an option but I can just see the 'fix' not getting applied to an earlier token, or worse the token evaporates into netherspace when I cancel the project.

    Ya, I had to make room in inventory for all the Risa stuff that gets cycled in/out hourly. That freekin competitive rep junk slaughtered my inventory space.

    I just started STO after last patch, and the phasers have description Mk infinity ultra rare, but i can't find any reclaim for it - i thought the phasers will be already in Events store in account reward claim - like that Vorgon carrier?

    Wow! I dont know how to feel... We finished 15 waves of the Kobi but only got a score of 65, 450dilith and a daily box...

    Thankies! ~curtsy~ We lasted the entire time limit, and we kept the tanker together. SOMETHING one hit killed me, though, not sure what it was, maybe a Planet Killer burp? :o

    Was my NX refit, Sailor Moon's Kelvin Constitution, another person's Odyssey, and 2 more I could not identify. o.o

    Anyhow ~gives Sailor Moon a high 5~ You played well, GF!

    Me too.... When I saw the second, third and amazingly enough fourth row of skull icons (the advanced ones look cool) I thought "amazing - impossible. NWS revised for masses"

    Do you get both weapons as a reward at the same time for completing the event or is it you've got to do the event twice?

      Where's the XP? I see that none of the ships you blow up give any sort of ship xp at all... or any xp for that matter. You only get xp at the end of event and that does not give any ship xp.

      It seems to be bugged for me, I did the event well over 20hours and didn't even get the voucher this time.

      Edit: Turns out leaving before claiming the reward caused it to not happen, how odd.
