If you’ve been holding off on playing Star Trek Online because you simply don’t feel like leveling yet another character in an MMO, the upcoming Delta Recruitment event running from April 2nd until May 21st may interest you. The free-to-play game from Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios is advertising this event as the “most new-player friendly (event) the game has seen in almost two years, and the perfect time to join the community of Star Trek Online.”
Basically the event designates characters created during the event as “Delta Recruits” and gives them a parallel story and set of missions to play as they please while working through their faction’s normal leveling missions. Delta Recruits also get Dilithium Ore generated when defeating enemies and members of their group get this bonus as well. Enjoy the extra ore fast though as this trait will go away when the event ends.
The Delta Recruitment event is aimed at getting players ready for the game’s upcoming Iconian War. The more captains each faction has, the better, so get leveling as soon as the event starts.
In addition to all of the above benefits and rewards, Star Trek Online plans to add a ton of extra perks as well. So many so that even their own official announcement says they don’t have the room to list them all out. If you already have every character slot full, don’t worry, every account will be getting a free extra character slot so you can create a Delta Recruit as well.
