Star Trek Online launches 2024 Summer event with a free playable starship up for grabs

Once again, it's time for a vacation on Risa. Developer Cryptic Studios has kicked off the yearly summer seasonal event period for Star Trek: Online, its Trek-themed MMORPG. As with previous summer events, players who participate will earn themselves a free playable starship, along with other goodies. The event will run until August 1, 2024.

This year's prize is the Vovin Obelisk Carrier, a spacecraft carrier starship that is a heavily updated version of the original Obelisk Carrier, which was first introduced in 2013 as part of the game's Season 8 update. Designed by an unnamed ancient alien civilization, the Obelisk carriers are capable of using subspace itself as a weapon and fielding swarms of automated drone fighters. The Vovin takes the original Obelisk design and updates its appearance and statistics to the current endgame level of Tier 6.

To earn the Vovin, players simply need to log into the game for a set number of days in the event, performing a quick daily task on the vacation planet of Risa. The tasks include minigames like dance contests and jetpack or hoverboard racing, as well as treasure hunts and quests to find Horga'hn, a Risian fertility symbol.

For their trouble, they'll also earn a currency called Lohlunat favors, which can be traded for prizes, including ground combat gear, as well as cosmetic costumes like baseball uniforms (referencing certain episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and swimsuits. New additions to the wardrobe include wetsuits matching the diving gear worn by cast members in the opening portions of Star Trek Into Darkness, as well as a Rainbow Mellanoid Worm based on the character Murph from Star Trek: Prodigy.

Star Trek Online is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The Summer event lasts from July 2, 2024 through August 1, 2024.
