Gamma Recruitment was available for a limited time on the following dates:

PC:

  • June 5th, 2018 - July 18th, 2018
  • October 24th, 2019 - November 15th, 2019

  • July 1st, 2021 - July 29th, 2021

Any Jem'Hadar or Jem'Hadar Vanguard character created during this Event will remain a Gamma Recruit indefinitely, allowing players to progress through objectives at their own pace, with certain benefits available for their whole account.

Mission Text[]

Jem'Hadar First is given the [Dominion Transponder] by Loriss.

This meeting is classified.
You are one of a special breed, chosen by the Founders for great things.
To that end, we will supply you with special gear and training.
Use this transponder to directly contact us on a secure channel.
I expect regular reports, especially regarding unusual developments.
And do remember - victory is life.

Features and benefits[]

The Gamma Recruit Window

  • All accounts received an extra Character Slot during the first run of this event, with the launch of Victory is Life.
  • Gamma Recruits have a temporary bonus trait, Gamma Recruit, which awards Salvage for the player's entire team upon defeating enemies. This Trait is only active during a Gamma Recruitment Event.
  • Gamma Recruits will find out quickly that they have been selected to participate in a series of special operations. These will help to prepare for combating the Hur’q threat, and operating alongside new allies from the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Their handlers within the Dominion will issue a special Transponder device, allowing a new UI element to be accessed which will display these additional objectives.
  • Unlike previous Recruitment events, there are no weekly server-side goals to pursue as Gamma Recruits during the event window.

Gamma Recruit Character and Account Rewards[]

  • Completion of Gamma Recruit goals provides certain rewards for all level 20+ characters on an account. Once the Gamma Recruit character has reached level 65+ and accumulated 20+ hours of play time, Gamma Recruits can also claim other account-wide rewards from past Recruitment events by visiting the Temporal agent at each faction's social hub:

Event updates and notes[]

  • This event was updated on June 24th, 2021. All rewards that give marks now include up-to-date marks for all Reputations, including the Discovery Legends reputation. The previous requirements for earning specialization points were reduced from 90 to 45, and the requirements for reaching Tier 5 in Reputations were reduced to a total of 10 Reputations from the previous total of 12, among all currently-existing Reputations.
    • If the player reached Tier 5 in 10 Reputations and/or 45 specialization points on an existing Jem'hadar Recruit, the player is able to claim these reward(s) immediately.
  • New goals were added; as the Jem'hadar are the Dominion's first line of defense against the Hur'q, a goal was added to complete the Swarm TFO five times, with a reward of 100 Gamma Marks and one Germanium Carapace Fragment. The other new goal is to reach Tier 6 in a Reputation. Completing this goal rewards one T6x Ship Upgrade Token and an account unlock: a choice of one Ultimate Tech Upgrade (Engineering, Science, or Shields). There were also Endeavor-specific goals added.
