The Battle at the Binary Stars is historically one of the most important battles between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. Every Starfleet cadet studies it in the academy, though, until now it has been purely in a historical context. But things have changed with the arrival of Klingon General J’ula in the 25th century.
The Battle at the Binary Stars is the first Featured Task Force Operation in Star Trek Online. Five Alliance captains will be able to take on the roles of Federation ships at the battle, in a new holodeck simulation crafted specifically for the Alliance’s mutual understanding and betterment. During this simulation, your ship will take on the appearance of a Federation ship from the Discovery era, although you will retain all of your powers, bridge officers, and trays – it is only a visual change. What can you learn from one of the most disastrous battles in Federation history, and can your tactics turn the tide of the battle?
This event will last for 3 weeks starting on November 8 for PC players, and on Xbox One and Playstation 4 in early 2019. All players level 10 and above will be able to participate. Complete the TFO on 14 different days to earn the Beacon of Kahless while earning marks and dilithium. The first completion of this mission on an account each week will grant a Featured Episode Weekly Reward Box. This box gives your choice of an Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade or a Captain Specialization Point Box, which gives the character who opens it a Specialization Point.
The Beacon of Kahless is an item that summons your own personal Beacon. The Beacon will appear, giving off a light that blinds and placates your enemies. Then a small group of Klingon ships will warp into the system, answering the Beacon’s call and coming to your aid.
Good luck, Captains!
