The Mirror Invasion will be returning to Star Trek Online as part of a brand new limited time event starting on Thursday, August 25, 2016, and ending on Thursday, September 15, 2016 (when maintenance begins). This event map will only be playable during this three week event timeframe.
In addition to earning a choice of marks for playing the Mirror Invasion queued event, players can run a new reputation project to earn a huge reward of Dilithium, Marks, and a unique Admiralty Card.
Once a day, players will be awarded a Multidimensional Transporter for playing this event. By turning in 14 Transporters through the Reputation System, players will receive 50,000 Dilithium Ore, 500 Fleet Marks, 250 Marks of Your Choice and a brand new unique Admiralty Card: the I.S.S. Stadi! Each additional Multidimensional Transporter can be traded in for an additional 50 Fleet Marks, 2000 Dilithium Ore, and 35 Marks of Your Choice (Fleet, Romulan, Nukara, Omega, Dyson, Undine, Delta, Iconian, Terran, and Temporal) through a secondary Event Reputation Project that will become available after the main Project is completed.
The Mirror Invasion is a 5-captain, cross-faction queue for level 50-60 players with Normal and Advanced Queues.
We hope you enjoy this event and look forward to seeing you take on the Terran Empire. See you in-game!
The Mirror event tends to be one of those very grindy ones, since you have to run the event 14 times for EACH and EVERY Toon that you want to claim the rewards on. The rewards have always been iffy – An Admiralty card? Not sure if it’s worth that kind of grind. I think last year it was the Agony Gun… which still sits in a few of my toons’ inventory… UNUSED. So I’m not sure I’ll be participating much, but I might run it for Foxy since she’s the newest toon without a nice reserve of Dil.
To be fair, as a queued map I actually quite like the way it’s structured. It’s one of those maps where a knowledgeable and coordinated team can make a real difference! Unfortunately, it also has a tendency to attract a particularly high percentage of leechers and AFKers, and HEIDY DON’T DO FREE RIDES!! That, more than anything else, turns me off from taking part in the event.
