      • This was previously a single player episode.

    • Teammates can now play together on the same Delta Quadrant patrol maps.

Systems[edit | edit source]

  • Skill Points earned via completing missions and defeating NPCs have been updated.
    • The Skill Points earned from playing episodes with captains at levels 50 to 60 have been increased.
      • Previously, if a player completed a mission at level 49 and was rewarded 3,000 Skill Points, that same mission completed at level 51 would reward much lower than 3,000 Skill Points.
      • This update makes it so the player, in this scenario stated above, would earn at least 3,000 Skill Points at level 51 instead of the much lower number.
    • The amount of Skill Points earned via defeating enemy NPCs will now scale upwards with a player's level.
    • A captain's level will not be altered upon logging in.
      • For example, if a captain is level 53 that captain will still be level 53 upon logging in to Holodeck.
