Grand prize[]

Years 2 and 3 rewarded a starship following the first playthrough of the Anniversary episode. From year 4, [Anniversary Qmendation]s were introduced. Events, including playing the episode, rewarded these vouchers. The player had to submit 1000 vouchers into the (now defunct) events tab in the Reputation System to collect the grand prize.

In order to encourage activity each year, from Year 6 these were replaced by [Anniversary Prize Vouchers] linked to the relevant year.

From Year 10 onwards this and the reputation tab was replaced by the new Special Events system with missions rewarding daily progress Appointment Progress instead. This allowed for more activities to reward progress towards the ship.

Party Patrol[]

The mission “Party Patrol” (also “Party Crashers” and “Present Patrol”) was a daily mission at Starfleet Academy and the Klingon Academy. Rewards, depending on the year, included;

Omega Stabilization[]

The Omega Stabilization minigame
