In his latest dev blog entry, Star Trek Online Lead Content Designer Scott “Goatshark” Shicoff revealed some information about a new event coming to the game: The No-Win Scenario. And while Captain Kirk reprogrammed the computer so that it was possible to rescue the ship, you may not be so lucky.
In this event, captains will be put to the test as they take on wave after wave of enemy attacks. And like the Kobayashi Maru, it’s a simulation—thanks to the Holodeck training program. Still, you’ll want to win and the way to achieve this goal is by defeating the 10th and final wave.
A number of player awards are yours for the taking if you conquer the No-Win Scenario, and you can play by using the PvE Queue to join public or private queues. The event is available any time, but special dates and times that carry additional special awards will be announced as well.
No-Win Scenario will launch alongside STO Season 6: “Under Siege” and is available to both Federation and Klingon players. The event is designed for five-person groups and you must be a Vice Admiral or Lieutenant General to participate.
Below is a look at the various locales, battles, and action you’ll find throughout Star Trek Online.
