Star Trek Online‘s hourly events encompass activities such as crafting, looting, and acquiring marks. It has been revealed that when Season 8.5 drops later this month, the events will be converted into daily missions and weekend events. Players will be able to track these events via the in-game calendar. Cryptic has decided to make this change due to data that, ”showed that few of these events were being played often, and so we are re-envisioning the hourly events as weekend-long events with better rewards.”
Star Trek Online‘s Season 8.5 is scheduled to be released on January 30th, 2014.
