Summer is almost here, and with it comes the chance for many special events in video games, especially MMORPGs. The genre loves to give players the chance to revel in the Summer fun no matter where they are in the world, or what kind of video game world they are in. Star Trek Online is no different, as the game wants players to kick back and relax on one of the galaxies most beloved planets, Risa. And they want you to do it for quite a long time so you can celebrate a festival that’s taking place there.
The Risa Lohlunat Festival will take place from June 8th-June 20th. With it comes special merchants from the planet that’ll offer very special items for you to purchase, not the least of which is a brand new ship for you to own. Yep, you can get (with enough vouchers) the Vorgon Ryn’Kodan Carrier shown below. More details on this special ship will be coming soon so stay tuned for that.
But, if you’re looking for a way to actually spend your time (instead of spending your money) then the Biathlon is for you. In this event you’ll go hoverboard racing and floater flying to show you are the best on your craft. There will be two races an hour, so that means you’ll have plenty of chance to let loose, have fun, and race for glory.
And of course, there’s going to be new and special items in the Star Trek Online Summer Event Store. Some of these you can use for quite some time, such as new pets! There’s also special floaters and hoverboards, new costumes for you to wear, and more. For the full list of what’s happening on Risa in Star Trek Online, check the info page.
