Greetings Captains,

Big changes are headed your way in the coming days. Later this week, we will release v.3.0 which will include the following:

DISCOVERY CELEBRATION CREW SLOT SALE
In celebration of the forthcoming release of Star Trek: Discovery, we will be giving every Captain 10 FREE crew slots-but that’s not all! Beginning Wednesday at Noon ET (09:00 PT, 16:00 UTC), all crew slots will be on sale for half price until Friday at Noon ET (9:00 PT, 16:00 UTC). We’ll also be adding in 20 new tiers of slots, raising the maximum number of purchasable crew slots by 100.

VOYAGES
A new way to play, sending large crews out on long exploration missions. New storylines, thorny new problems to solve, and riches to earn are all at your fingertips in Voyages. A forced upgrade will follow in the days after release to ensure all features work for all players.

BATTLE ARENA IMPROVEMENTS
A new interface for Ship Battles will bring you even deeper into the action! We’ve also revamped PvP rewards giving access to new ship schematics.

We hope you love these changes! Be sure to check out our blog and social media accounts for more information.

Good Luck, Captains!
The STAR TREK TIMELINES Team

Woah nice!

I’m a fan of those new slots. And curious to try the Voyages.

Will the crew slot sale be half off what price crew slots are currently for me? For me five more crew slots would cost 2450 dilithium. Does that mean during the sale they will cost me 1225? Either price is quite high. Would be great if I could buy five more slots for 500 dil. 100 dil for each slot seems like a reasonable price.

So you will be adding 10 more 5 slots that are purchasable, which is 50. Plus you are giving 10 new free slots. Does that make the maximum number of crew slots possible 310 (it is 250 right now). Or is the max now going to be 300?

And by the way, thank you! That is a huge improvement. For weeks for me its been a battle of leveling crew just to freeze them to make room for the new crew releases that week. It will be good to finally be able to level crew to play with! It is very much appreciated.

Once the sale is live, if you are now seeing 2450 for the next rank you would be able to purchase, the price will be 1225.

Maybe worth a ticket?  They may take pity and give you a refund?

Anyway, thanks DB for the free slots!  Always glad to have room for the spoils of our playing!

Ahhh more crew slots! I’d been hoping for some new free slots to take advantage of gaining Discovery crew. It’ll be a while before I can stop agonizing over who to keep and who to freeze though haha.

This would be ideal, to work out any bugs they haven’t found before this week’s event!

Didn’t notice this until I had cross-posted it to the Subreddit, but shouldn’t the title be “Crew slot sale” not “Crew sale slot”?

Any chance of 8 free pull outs of cryo’ed crew or at least some merits to help.

Shan -
Just a suggestion -
For folks getting all the new crew slots - during those two days where they are on sale, Vault removal should be free.  Just for those two days.
