More Phoenix Prizes… what happened to Dilex?

In case you’re like me and haven’t been checking STO lately, another round of Phoenix Prizes are now on in-game. These are the packs that give you a chance to earn some old prizes that are no longer available, including event ships you might have missed, Admiralty cards and various goodies; even if you don’t need any of those, you can still cash these into Phoenix Upgrade packs so they’re a pretty good….

….uh….

…what the hell happened to the Dilithium Exchange rate? 200-1??? This is like a stock market collapse!

Anywho! Even if you have no plans or interest in buying these Phoenix packs at 4500 Dilithium apiece, make sure to talk to Grym at Drozana or Onna at DS9; each day until Monday you can talk to one of those and get a Phoenix Pack for free. Never leave free money on the table!

2015-06-29_00002By now you’ll see quite a few of the Ferengi Nandi flying around the galaxy — par for course for any free event ships.

Here we have Heidy in her tropical yellow and black bikini, which I have already posted pictures of in my last entry. As my Fed main Heidy is also my designated Dance-Partier as well as Jetpacker (grinding for the Ferengi Nandi). I must be doing something right with her because I have had several guys PM me about her looks; Fungi even said one time guys were stopping to check her out. 😉 Hey, it’s nice to be noticed!

The second picture shows the beachcomber costume, which is great because it’s an off-duty outfit rather than a beach one (meaning it can be worn off Risa). Next to Heidy there is Tikini, Fungi’s half-Romulan toon who happens to be R’Jal’s daughter.
