Health Care Workers Salute Bundle

captaincelestialcaptaincelestial Member Posts: 1,925 Arc User
"To honour all men and women who are fighting the good fight in a medical crisis, we present some Medical themed items to enjoy in your adventures. This can be claimed once per character on an account.

"Claiming this will grant the following:

Fed-Aligned Captains: Holographic Bashir Bridge Officer

Klingon Aligned Captains: Holographic Orion EMH Bridge Officer

Medical Tribute Vanity Shield

USS Hope Admiralty Card


Thank you for this offer :smiley:

But I have a question about it....

Is this a one character only deal, or it available to each of your characters that you log on and click this bundle (i.e. you have three characters, but you only clicked on it for two of them and then the third's out of luck because you didn't click the bundle for the third one after this is over)?

It definitely doesn't say it's account unlocked.

    It's worded kinda awkward but you can claim it on every charcater.

    My question here is. How are they going to actually handle the tribute? DS9's instance cap got lowered to 15 at the Omega/Anniversary event and hasn't been raised back up to the normal 20.

    Are they going to raise the instance caps for this?

    There is a slight error in the blog, it says Saturday the 17th.

    Thank you for the pack and, although most are unlikely to read it, thanks of course to all health workers across the globe indeed.

    I think this is an awesome gesture by Cryptic!!!
  • echattyechatty Member Posts: 5,914 Arc User
    It's an awesome gesture. I read the blog to say that it was per character, but I can see where some would misread it.

    My best friend in Bristol also works in healthcare at the children's hospital as an HSE. She takes her germ-fighting very seriously too. I'll be sure to let her know to get this bundle as she'll appreciate it too.

    Reyan, thank you for your service too, even if I'm not UK, I appreciate healthcare workers and all other essential workers all over the world.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    I work with testing for COVID -19 in hospitals and THANK you Devs for the kind gesture. Of course do not have much time to enjoy STO lately since we are pretty busy here but very nice for those who work on the frontlines of this worldwide pandemic. A nice break from reality.​​

    Amazing gesture and a really amazing bundle! Thank you very much, Cryptic! I really really appreciate some shiny vanity items and a new boff in m collection. Julian is great, glad to have him aboard.

    I did notice KDF side that the EMH Boff is the same as in the Doctor EMH bundle. You can't even open the box if you have the other Orion holo-boff as a candidate. I'm not sure if the Fed side holo-docs have the same limitation.

    They won't because it's Holo Dr. Bashir and not the EMH Doctor. I am wondering the same as the OP. If this is account wide that will stay in promotions tab for future characters or is it temporary claim.

    @ambassadorkael#6946 need more info.

    Put the vanity shield on a https://sto.gamepedia.com/To'Duj_Fighter and it reminds me of a rebel fighter from a different franchise..
    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.

    I can neither confirm nor deny since that particular franchise must remain nameless on this board.. :wink:

    Searching my clothes for medical uniform where did it go?!?!

    Seriously though we need medical uniforms and medical ships I mean one day one of these bad guy npc's are going to get smart and release a virus on the alliance and they will be okay alliance launch the medical assault ships to combat this virus. Uhhhh Remember we got rid of those and built warships to kill people instead remember Admiral Quinn. Oh damnit J'mpok and D'tan what about you guys... well ummm we did what you did so we wouldn't look suspicious and end the alliance. So Cryptic J'ula has a super pandemic ready to launch at any time and you must build medical ships to stop them immediately! This gesture cannot end here! No farther! Especially being that we are on the edge of this cliff and we don't wanna die so there! Q's April winter getaway will not last forever so we must prepare for this! Get ready to grind!

    Nice move. A large thankyou to all these new front-line warriors. Usually its the military on the front lines, this is a different kind of war calling for a different class of warrior. Thank you all!

    Qa'Pla!

    I now have 7 (seven) holo boffs that can't have their uniforms altered... Can the devs do something about that please? I spent a stupid amount of lobi to USE the uniform, not be told "You can't do that." every time I try to apply it to a boff.

    Thanks for the health workers and thanks to Cryptic for another nice givaway.
    and for those asking yes every alt can claim..
    and I don't know if it's a glitch, but the Bashir hologram is re-nameable. one alt has Dr Who and one Doctor Hawkeye Pierce.
    Sadly you cannot just back down the {hologram] so it just Julian Bashir.

    and if you are interested in the vanity shield:

    That doesn't sound normal, I've unlocked Bashir on my Fed-aligned Roms and Jem'Hadars (so far, I've been busy today, so I haven't gone through all my characters yet so I can't totally confirm there isn't any glitches).

    Yeah, that must be a bug. All of my Fed-aligned Roms were able to recruit Bashir.

    Same here. I'm an RN in Oklahoma City, Ok. This is very much appreciated.

    I was wondering something similar: I see that it's per character, and I already claimed on one. But is it available indefinitely now? Or do I need to claim on all characters asap?

    Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you're there... you can make a difference.

    your bridge officer slots might be full, if so you can check any pending bridge officer requests

    Well there wasn't any countdown clock on it's C-Store listing like the Borg pack had. Though I would get it done on every character on your account that can (Rommies & Jems need to choose a Ally before they can claim) ASAP.
    I got about half of my account's Characters claimed today. I should be able to finish the rest tomorrow.

    • Full, Story-driven, select from start 1-50 Klingon Side
    • Scrap current Lock Box & Lobi system for something more reasonable
    • Expand Dil and Rep/Fleet Marks to regular story content
