Commander, Incensed by the Romulan Star Empire’s puppeteering, both the Suliban and the Corvallen have conspired in secret to form an alliance of their own. Together, they seek to destabilize the existing alliances in the Origin Sector, claiming territories as their own in the process. In their search for power, a newly uncovered Progenitor ruin has been found – one that could spell disaster not just for the Origin Sector but also for the space-time continuum itself. Welcome to Lower Decks Part two Update two.

Introducing G5 Armadas

New level 52+ Federation, Klingon, and Romulan armadas have been introduced to G5 space. These armadas utilize the same directives as their lower-level counterparts to initiate. By defeating these targets, you will  loot in the form of:

  • G5 ship blueprints 
  • Ship parts
  • Faction credits
  • Armada credits
  • Officer shards
  • And more!

The respawn timers for G4 armadas have been lowered to go along with these new Armada targets.

Seasonal Territory Capture

Chroniton Radiation has flooded the Alpha Quadrant. Temporal anomalies have been spotted at a high frequency inside all Territory Capture systems, and Starfleet is ordering immediate evacuation from the sector. This phenomenon has forever changed the galaxy, and all previously occupied systems are now up for grabs. Welcome to Season 1 of Territory Capture.

Season 1 of Territory Capture includes:

  • A reset of all Territory space
  • New services
  • An expansion to the Territory Capture research tree
  • And a brand new Territory Capture season pass

Territory Capture Season Pass

Located in the “Battlepass” tab, the season pass will provide a variety of challenges and rewards while participating in Territory space. With both a free and premium pass, you’ll find exclusive rewards not able to be earned anywhere else. These rewards include:

Forbidden Tech Update – Cap Removal and Q’s Benevolence

Starting this month, we’re making some changes to Forbidden Tech, which will impact when Commanders try to level and tier up their Forbidden Tech. 

  • Forbidden Tech no longer has a “cap” on the chance for success for both leveling and tiering up.
  • This means, if you have a high enough Ascension Rank and Court of Q, you can enter into the attempt with a 100% chance of success
  • However if you you’re willing go to the mysterious Q before hand, he’s also decided to be a bit kinder to all of us mere mortals.
  • The first time you fail in leveling up a Forbidden Tech, Q’s Benevolence will increase your percent chance of upgrading by 10%
  • Each failure after this will increase your chance of success by an additional 5% up to 100%.
