Star Trek Online reveals 1000-day veteran rewards


Starfleet and Klingon captains, your attention please! Cryptic Studios has an announcement that should be especially exciting for any long-time players of Star Trek Online. The game has been going strong since February of 2010. Tomorrow its first wave of players will reach the 1000-day mark, and everyone knows what that means: veteran rewards!

Today the studio unveiled the shiny rewards that these dedicated Trekkies will have bestowed upon them in gratitude for their loyalty, and those players are certainly in for a real treat. Players who prefer the Starfleet side of the game will be given access to the latest in Starfleet technology: the Chimera Heavy Destroyer. This fine starship has a number of top-of-the-line features ranging from the prototype Dynamic Tactical System to the "powerful multi-targeting Lotus, which is capable of piercing multiple targets." Meanwhile, the Klingons in the house will be able to jump into the cockpit of the Peghqu' Heavy Destroyer. This versatile ship is very similar to its Federation counterpart, featuring the same Dynamic Tactical System and Lotus weaponry.

Veteran players who reach the 1000-day mark will also claim a new in-game title, an extra starship slot, and an exclusive forum title. Better yet, all lifetime subbers will also receive instant access to all existing veteran rewards, which is handy since lifetime subs are on sale for $199.99 (down from $299.99) for the next month.
