"I'm not sure about this Q guy... How does he come up with this stuff?"
- Gingerbread Veteran

The special Q's Winter Wonderland is a recurring Special Event that allows players to celebrate with festive activities and rewards, and is active in December and early January each year. It is accessible to all captains that have completed their tutorial and selected an allegiance.

Outline[]

Q proudly invites personnel of all ranks, allegiances, species, cosmological variances, and molecular stabilities (or lack thereof) to ring in the holiday season, and visit his Winter Wonderland for fun, frivolity, and prizes!

Players can transwarp directly to the event via the Mission Journal. Alternatively the event can be accessed by talking to Q in person at Earth Spacedock, First City or New Romulus Command.

Event Grand Prize[]

Participate in any of the listed Winter Event activities marked below with Appointment Progress symbol once per day, per Account, to earn Daily Progress toward the Event Grand Prize. Alternatively, the Grand Prize can be bought out immediately for 1000 x Lobi Crystal icon.pngCommon icon.png [Lobi Crystal] (which will be pro rate discounted if the player has accumulated any Appointment Progress on their Account).
