Star Trek Online: Q’s Winter Wonderland
Dates Active: Active now until January 18th, 2018
What is it? Q’s Winter Wonderland offers a series of holiday-themed missions and rotating holiday-themed open missions (the open mission schedule can be tracked in the Winter Event UI). There are also special Winter Event Assignments which award Holiday Collectibles. These Collectibles can be taken to the Holiday Item Vendor to trade in for items of the player’s choice. This year, new trinkets, costumes and other prizes have been added to the Holiday Item Vendor. In addition, players will have a chance to get a brand new starship (Breen Plesh Tral Heavy Raider [T6]) by collecting Winter Prize Vouchers (2017) and using them to complete the new Event Reputation Project. These vouchers are available via completing “The Fastest Race on Ice” holiday mission, or from visiting the Lobi Crystal Store.
