Cryptic has been working hard to expand communication with fans of Star Trek Online, and by all accounts they're having some success.
The latest addition to the Star Trek Online site is a calendar of upcoming events, promising all sorts of goodies in store for fans in the next few months. The calendar currently covers March and April, and shows four upcoming Special Task Force missions in addition to the one released last Thursday. Infected caused quite a stir in the STO community and proved to be a bit more of a challenge than many players had anticipated, and one forum member earned the thanks of his peers by putting together a very well-done guide. It will be interesting to see if the future STF missions hold as much of a challenge now that players know to expect a higher difficulty level.
The other item on the calendar is a release date for Update 1. Okay, two release dates. The title of the update is still unannounced, but we now know that it will be sometime in the second half of March. So enjoy the STF missions while you wait, and we'll be keeping an eye out for patch notes!
