For three weeks, from now until November 24th at 10:00AM PST, Federation, Klingon, and Romulan Republic Captains between levels 50-60 can queue up for Star Trek Online's 10-captain “Crystalline Cataclysm” event to defeat the Crystalline Entity and earn one Crystal Shard every 20 hours. After collecting 14 of them, players can complete a new Event Reputation project to be rewarded with 50,000 Dilithium Ore, 500 Fleet Marks, 250 Marks of their choice (Fleet, Omega, Romulan, Nukara, Dyson, Undine, Delta, Iconian, Terran, or Temporal Marks), and the new ground weapon Crystal Radiation Projector.
BONUS... Once the new, main reputation project is complete, a brand-new bonus 1-Shard project will become available to slot. Completing this will earn players 2,000 Dilithium Ore, 50 Fleet Marks and 35 Marks of their choice (Fleet, Omega, Romulan, Nukara, Dyson, Undine, Delta, Iconian, Terran, or Temporal Marks).
To participate and earn Crystal Shards, queue up for either the Normal or Advanced version of the event – a successful completion of either will award you with one Shard, in addition to the normal rewards.
Lastly, stay on alert, Captains. Recent intelligence reports reveal that there are a few new tactics the Entity and its allies are using during this event to thwart your attempts of destroying them.
Gather your friends for this epic event and we'll see you in-game.
