All good Star Trek fans are familiar with the Kobayashi Maru, the "no-win scenario" test that Kirk -- kinda-sorta -- cheated to beat. Now, thanks to Star Trek Online, we get to find out what each of us would try to do to win. We may not be able to do what Kirk did, but we can still test our mettle and see how long we'd last.
This weekend, PC STO players level 50 and above will be able to try their hand at the Kobayashi Maru. The test opens up at 9 AM PST tomorrow, and will run through October 2nd at 10 AM PST. During that time, players will be able to take on waves of enemies while simply attempting to survive. The longer they survive, the better the rewards. There's both an open ended version and a timed version. So, depending on which is being played, the scenario ends either when everyone on a team is dead, or when time runs out.
Players who take part in the event will be rewarded with a choice of marks, and those who manage to survive for a decent amount of time will also be given dilithium ore. In addition, there are special limited time rewards for those who play the scenario during three days of the event. Details on these rewards are available on the STO site.
