The server push for this will occur sometime this afternoon.

Starfleet scans have detected traces of the most powerful substance known to humanity: the Omega molecule. Wanting the ultimate protection in these uncertain times, the Terran Empire is attempting to synthesize this dangerous compound for use as a weapon. Even a single destabilized molecule could end millions of lives. As per the Omega Directive, Section 31 intends to destroy the molecule at any cost, while the Maquis hope to acquire and permanently stabilize it, providing a near-infinite energy source for those in need. The Terran Empire, on the other hand, promises that if they can complete their research, the Alpha Quadrant will be safe from any and all future threats in this crisis—even the Borg. That is, if you’re willing to place your safety in their hands.

With this server build we are also introducing some changes to The Gauntlet based on your feedback, as well as some bug fixes. These changes include:

- Increased the probability of the Featured Skill appearing in a contest. Players should now see the featured skill in Gauntlets at a much higher rate.
- Merit amount awarded from the Currency Box has been increased from 10-30 to 30-100.
- Removed the Uncommon Training Programs from Gauntlet Rewards.
- Fixed an issue where a Gauntlet match could end up in a tie that favored the defender.
- Fixed an issue with Gauntlet timers, so Gauntlet matches now should no longer end earlier than they should.

Live long and prosper,

The Star Trek Timelines Team
