Bring on the Breen

Star Trek Online is in a bit of a lull right now as the team gets ready for the release of Season 4.  Sadly, this has meant no more Featured Episodes.  To help fill the content gap, they are starting reruns tomorrow. I mean rerun in a good way this time.  Read on for the details!

Featured Episodes in STO have a special reward which is only valid during the timeframe of the contents release.  If you do the mission later, you will not get the reward.  Starting tomorrow, Cryptic will be brining back the special rewards for each Featured Episode.

Each of the three Featured Episode series gets a week in May, starting with The Breen tomorrow (Thursday).  You can check out their calendar of upcoming events here.  I missed the first series, so I can't wait to get started on it tomorrow.  It also means that I will get the Breen Bridge Officer upon completion!

In addition to the original rewards, players can choose from tokens and a special new item set.  The new set is called The Breen Absolute Zero MK XI.  For more information, you can check out this thread.

The Breen series starts with the mission 'Cold Call.'  You need to be level 10 or greater for it to show up in your mission log.  My plan is to do one episode a day.  I also need to get my Reman Bridge Officer ready for active Duty.  He's just been hanging out in the Holodeck all the time.  I'm guessing in some kind of cave program... what do Remans like to do anyway?
