Updated: Holodeck Release Notes: Season 11: A New Dawn | Mine Trap and The Breach Retired!

Confirmation that Mine Trap and The Breach being removed for improvement:

Trendy just dropped the patch notes for tomorrows launch of Season 11: A New Dawn.  To my surprise they’re retiring both Mine Trap (a lot of fun to this day, fighting Salt Vampires) and The Breach.  The Breach was one of my favorite missions prior to Delta Rising, but with the new difficulty it became too difficult for most players.  I hope both of them receive a reprieve at some point in the future and are brought back.

In the meantime we have several new queues and a revamped Cardasian arc to keep us occupied 😉

On the crafting front we’re finally getting “EPS Flow Regulators” and “Shield Emitter Amplifier” as options, and Traits are now alphabetical! This patch is a doozy!

New Features:

Featured Episode: Sunrise

Admiralty:

  • Admiralty is a new system which allows a level 52 – 60 captain to send out any starship that the captain currently has access to for assignments which will reward valuable assets and advance influence and prestige.
  • The starships that can be used are all currently commissioned ships in the captain’s roster.
    • This does not include starships still in rewardpacks or ones which are unclaimed in the ship store.
    • Captains will only ever have access to a single Admiralty Ship per class of ship they have access to.
    • “Fleet” and “Mirror” versions of existing classes are counted as separate classes.
  • Each Admiralty ship has the following characteristics: Tier, Rarity, Stats, Special Abilities, and Maintenance.
    • These characteristics will be used to determine which ships go on what assignments.
  • There is also a chain of assignments called “Tour of Duty” which lead to the largest rewards each campaign has to offer.
  • With the launch of season 11, players will have access to two campaigns each with their own set of rewards:
    • United Federation of Planets
    • Klingon Empire
  • The Admiralty system can be accessed in the Duty Officer and R&D Systems UI as a new tab.
