The Mycelial Crisis was a Special Event tied to the release of Season Eighteen: Awakening. From September 10 to October 10, 2019 on PC, and from October 15 on Consoles, players who participated had a chance to earn a brand new Tier 6 Elachi Starship by playing through the new content.
In 2256, during the Federation-Klingon War, J'Ula of House Mo'Kai attempted to use a weapon of mass destruction based on stolen Starfleet research on properties of P.stellaviatori to destroy the Federation Starbase One. The weapon blast caused a temporal shockwave which destroyed the station, but also pulled J'Ula, and her lackeys, into the early 25th century.
Now, J'Ula is preparing to use her weapon on Andoria, but the Alliance is not the only thing J'Ula is threatening to destroy. She has been corrupting the Mycelial network to power her weapon. If her intrusion into the network isn't stopped, it could mean an end to all existence. Journey into the Mycelial network and put an end to her dangerous plan! The Elachi who inhabit the network have already been corrupted and will attempt to stop you!
