    These promotions are a great way to get some good deals on C-Store bling, not to mention contributing to a good cause. I donated to the first Groupees promotion and just finished contributing to this one too.

    Overall, very satisfied. Got some nifty goodies and donated to a good cause.

    Nicely done Cryptic/Groupees!

    Whilst I'm aware console players can donate too, will we see any of the bundles at some point over there or will the in game items be restricted to PC only?

    Four T6 ships, some other bits and pieces and all for a great cause?

    Sold, and well done Cryptic for doing this.

    Seems the items are PC-only unlocks...
    ...pity.
    I'm happy to support the cause, but I'd like to use the items on console too.

    I am not a sales guy, so this is some Cryptic math for me:
    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Star Trek Online is teaming up with Groupees to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, to help win the fight against Breast Cancer. You can head to the Groupees site right now and purchase an exclusive Star Trek Online Bundle - with 100% of proceeds* going to the Foundation.

    Is there a way to see how much of that maximum donation has already been covered?

    Oh, I see there is only a limited amount of packs you can acquire, so that probably covers it.
    EDIT: Oh, and also a counter on the top right. Nice.

    hmm you guys should change the ships to be different than the normal ones found on the zen store... make em all Mirror Universe versions instead... even if the traits and consoles stay the same like the Guardian vs Mirror Guardian... it'll be different for Admiralty cards and for those who already own the regular zen store version.

    The cause is great, but the original post from Ambassador Karl is shown on the console tabs of the STO website and doesn't say anything there about this being PC only. By putting this post on the Xbox tab it implies this is for all platforms. However, other posters AND the Groupees site seem to indicate this is for PC only. Could Ambassador Kael please clarify?

    Of course you would.

    Happy to donate, but it's a little annoying that the PS4 splash ad for this advertises items that you won't get on PS4.

    use... https://www.arcgames.com/en/redeem/

    also you only need to do a min of $10. did it once for my alt accounts since main already had these ships.

    you get 3 codes... 1 for a the vanity pack, and 2 each for 2 ship bundle. so you dont need to claim everything on 1 account. 1 key for the battlecruisers, 1 for the escorts.

    quantity is limited...

    Can the items be claimed on more than one character?
    EDIT: Nevermind, tested it myself and they can be claimed on more than one character.

    can someone clarify if this can be used on ps4 or xbox also

    Why not, good cause. Done
    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.

    PC Only - based on what Groupees says where they reveal the code. I dont know myself for sure since I am at work... will not be able to confirm till late at night.

    Also the page says "Windows" under each box that highlights the item. So it should be PC only... not the 1st time Cryptic posts are wrong.

    Edit: Also even thou the news tabs PS4 and Xbox has the article about event/promo... if you read the article. It says "You can head to the Groupees site right now and purchase an exclusive Star Trek Online Bundle on PC" <- note the "on PC" They probably should of made it more clear or not include it on the news tab for Xbox & PS4.

    For all the console folks, you can blame Sony/Microsoft for missing out. Everything has to go through their approval process before making it to console, but PC is Cryptic-to-player directly.

    Is this once per account or can each character use the tribble and vanity shield? I don't see that covered anywhere, and not even in the Claim window.

    I'm having issues trying to donate, I have gave them my billing address 5 times, and it keeps telling me to add a billing address. So I guess I am not donating then. :(

    I support this charity anyway, this is a another reason to give them more money!

    I bought the battlecruiser pack long ago, so I already have the Kurak. Would that be why the Europa isn't showing up as available on the c-store page? All the other rewards are present and correct and I've relogged, changed zone, etc.

    Pre-emptive edit - Before posting, I decided to check through Promotions and there it is. Clicked that and it's now available in the ship page.
