yes, in the description of the event (hit 'K', then see it in the left sidebar), says you get the reward once a day. can run it more often, but only get the reward once. Annoying that you don't get a timer with it so you can see how long until the next one, unless it's by calendar day or something.

Either way, one transporter a day, 15 to get the big bonus.

The only way I know of is to look under the Journal Logs, the right most tab in your journal UI. It shows the last time you ran the mirror event, so you can use that to figure out if 20 hours have passed. And yeah I wish Cryptic could design a better UI for doing this.

Check out the new ESD on Tribble. it is so awesome! This actually looks like Star Trek.

Tacofang really has outdone himself here!

Someone posted a number of screenshots you can view here.

And here's the same panorama of the new ESD that I posted to the screenshots thread.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

it reminds me of a shopping mall. There is too much open space for it to be practical..

The big open space in the middle caused a bit of graphics lag on my somewhat above-average graphics card. I think it will lag a lot more for low-end players who use the integrated graphics built-into their Intel/AMD microprocessors, especially if there are many players running around.

But from a layout perspective, it is very intuitive. The shipyard with all ship gear vendors, ship tailor, ship repairs is in front. Admiral Quinn and all the personal skill trainers, boff vendors, respec trainers are behind. Personal gear vendors, commodity vendors, exchange market, tailor and sick bay are to the left. Club 47 is to the right.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Looks nice. On the other hand, wish they'd spend half the time on NEW stuff that they do tweaking and re-tweaking old stuff. 3rd ESD, they've redone the tutorial half a dozen times, lots of 'remastered' episodes, etc. Like they're allergic to new things, and just keep playing with the old stuff instead. Would rather the effort going into a little story content occasionally...

Layout on old ESD was fine, but if you think this is better, looking forward to it I guess. What they really need to fix is First City, if they want to tweak one. I've given up going there because the layout is crap, can never find anything, and it's a hot mess. My KDF toon goes elsewhere when they need something, unless it's Q right in the main lobby.

Yea, my KDF lives at the Academy/Quarry. It has everything I need and I only go to First City to visit the Personnel officer for Contraband. If they put a contraband turn in at the Academy I'd never see First City again.

I wonder when we'll get to see the updated Borg/Undine mission arcs on test, since they've said that those are being worked on to bring them up to date with recent Iconian plot developments.

I just had a go at the season 9 space battlezone on Tribble. It plays exactly like the current ground battlezone, except in space. Instead of Voth troops, you fight Undine ships which felt like tissue paper. I easily ripped through them. Instead of fighting 3 T-Rex bosses at the end, you fight 3 planet killers.
