Q's Winter Wonderland Grand Prize 2021?

I was wondering if anyone knew what this Christmas' Grand Prize Ship is going to be? Well, if it's going to be a Ship at all, of course.

It does still make me laugh that with the Summer and Winter Events, which have Ships as prizes, that all the missions to earn them are Ground...I'd love a space mission.

    all they have said is it will not be another felkiri (spelling) ship. they have not hinted since nor will we know until they announce the event. (unless we get luck and something gets slipped up)

    The common assumption is that it may be the Eisenberg class. But again, that's an assumption.

    So we'll never get a fekirhi ship that can use the only actual fire based weapon in the game.

    We've had three already. Escort, big damn dreadnought, carrier. (Although I confess I cheated somewhat, I got the big damn dreadnought from the Mudd Market when it was on sale a while back... I had missed that year's event.)

    I would like the option to use Q's Chair like a ship, image doing space combat with a literal throne. Tiniest T6 Ship, since it is just a chair.

    Candy cane nacelles, a cookie saucer...ooh, even just a candy vanity shield would be more fun than a ship I'll never fly.

    There's one experimental weapon, I believe. I think that's it, actually.

    Candy Cane vanity shield sounds cool :)

    Maybe even a gingerbread vanity shield too, with icing for highlights. :smiley:

    And I can't even say it would be more ridiculous than some of the newest Trek ships...

    Can you imagine trying to shop those things as part of your portfolio? "Wait, that was you?! NEXT!!!"

    Damn it, now I want to make a Trek ship out of holiday treats...

    I'd be down for a vanity shield of candy canes and/or gingerbread. =D

    From what has been said, only certainty is that it will not be a fekhiri ship and not a breen ship.

    I mean the Phlogiston Projector experimental weapon: https://sto.fandom.com/wiki/Phlogiston_Projector since none of the fekirhi ships have an experimental weapon slot they can't use it, yes you can use the fire consoles on another ship but I was wanting a fekirhi ship which could use the projector. Makes no sense how they all get consoles to boost fire damage but none of them can use fire weapons. If they released the other fekirhi escort I've seen NPC's use then it could've been possible it would have a exp weapon slot and could use it but alas.

    i asked in another thread about those slots, and if memory serves, they said the slots are reserved for tactical ships.

    never heard of this console, let alone many experimental ones since i dont fly ships with any. way way way back in the day i think i flew one...but since...nope

    I like the Agonized Subatomic Disintegrator -- multi-target, decent physical dot, no power cost. Combines well with the Torment Engine and plasma weaponry on a temporal ship. But that's just me.

    Cookie Saucer, yule log or swiss roll warp pods, gum drop bussards, gingerbread struts, candy cane torpedoes, etc. :)

    I just wish they would make the entire breen/felkiri unlockable. I would like to get both for some similar characters with all consoles(including the older t5 and older ships.). Maybe they could sell it as a bundle in the cstore. Mudd's is too expensive to get realistically. Make it a 5,000 zen pack and have it available on holidays. Call it the holiday special bundle.

    You're not going to get event ships at normal c-store prices, and definitely not for less than normal ships.

    Cryptic wants people to log in and play the events. If people know they can get the event ships cheap instead of it costing an arm and two legs, they are less likely to feel Fear Of Missing Out and become more likely to skip events.

    The design of the Mars-Class is begging to have a joke "cookie hull with candy cane nacelles" skin.

    That sounds like something they'd do, so I'd place my bet on that too. Their sales depend on pushing for that style to be or at least appear to be more popular in game.

    I support this (even if I dislike it) - variety so everyone can enjoy their unique styles & approaches. The red baron painted his plane red to taunt and intimidate by reason of becoming a highly visible target. The cat is out of the bag after all in this game with alien ships, cross-faction flying, that it feels like nothing matters anymore, so why not.

    In the past it hasn't been announced until within 10 days of the start of the event. Considering the end date of the Klingon/Campaign #5 event is more than ten days away... we're not there yet.

    Someone necro'ed the thread that referred to the outcome of the Jupiter design voting thing.

    https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/9658283

    There are actually some interesting designs in there - some of which don't even look close to anything we currently have in-game.

    https://pwimages-a.akamaihd.net/arc/16/39/16398e2fea6d465ffdd2391cc8044e711447874133.jpg

    The fifth one in that picture for example, with the elevated part covering the full length of the saucer looks nice.


    Similarly, there are still unused designs from other contests like the Risa one.

    https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11419073-vote-for-the-summer-event-ship!

    Design number three looks like it took some inspiration from the Steamrunner and/or Akira ships, so that one may not be that interesting. The fourth one is very different though and would be a good event ship.

    Honestly, I'd love to see all of them as variants of the Jupiter based on specialization and station focus -- tac, eng, or sci (instead of the multi-mission explorers...which are essentially 3 different skins for the exact same ship). A tac-focused one might have better maneuverability and lower durability, and the eng-focused one has the opposite, while the sci one would fall right in the middle.
