Version 1.6.0

2016-December-20

Supply Kits

The “Boosts” tab has been renamed to “Boosts & Kits” Supply Kits may be purchased for 70 Dilithium in the Boosts and Kits section of the Time Portal. Supply Kits remain active for 24 hours from the time of purchase. Supply Kits provide the following bonuses when active: 25% reduction in Chroniton cost, double credit rewards, and 50% bonus crew XP. Players may purchase more than one supply kit. Each additional supply kit increases your Supply Kit time by 24 hours.

Bug Fixes

== Players may once again view event rewards before the event begins. == Players may once again see a player’s fleet and battle station crew when viewing their profile. == Holocommunicator is now named Holocomm for text length reasons. == Added an icon for the VIP Level notification. == Added an event unlock icon with the correct padlock image. == Updated the Admiral Division rewards to correct say Admiral in their mails. Previously they said Captain, though they still delivered the Admiral rewards. == Fixed a typo in WWII O’Brien’s flight helmet. == Kes’s items are now correctly called “Kes’s” instead of “Kess’s” == Added four more voice lines for Q when you return to the game.

Ship Battles and PvP

Build and change ship UI improvements == Ships data has been updated to show a ship’s base data, making it easier to choose which ship to use. Previously, this data was only shown when looking at the info button of a ship. == Ships are now much more recognizable from their art. == The Info button has been reworked to better show ship information.

Improved Ship Battle UI == All information on your ship and your opponent’s ship has been centralized on the bottom portion of your screen. == Opponent’s actions are now more easily displayed above the opponent’s ship health bars. == Opponent notifications are now more visible on the right side of the screen.

Improved Crew Filtering for Battle Stations ==Selecting a Battle Station on your ship will cause the Crew that match the Station’s Skill Bonus to filter to the top of the list.

Version 1.5.3

2016-November-7

-On the menu that shows missions to obtain items and the Replicator, certain missions that have actually been completed appear to be locked and cannot be selected or warped. This bug has been fixed in 1.5.3; you should see the missions to get items in order of least-to-most Chroniton cost, and they should be locked if you have completed the mission.

-The Shuttle UI bug that prevented sending more than one shuttle at a time, or completing one shuttle at a time, has been fixed.

Version 1.5.2

2016-November-2

Premium Features:

  • Some players may see new versions of the Monthly Card in their shop! With 1.5.2 comes the ability to test out new, exciting versions of the Monthly Card, giving our players value in new ways. We’ll let you know what’s coming soon!

Ads:

  • Ads have been overhauled!
  • Ad buttons now have their own distinct color, letting you see ad options at a glance. The ability to view ads may now be present for some players in three places: Scanning, Warping, and getting a Chroniton boost!
  • Ads continue to be a work in progress. With 1.5.2, we will be greatly increasing our test group, so more players than ever can utilize ads in the game.

Events:

  • Galaxy Events have been improved, with bug fixes, UI fixes, and more! The UI has been updated and streamlined, including a visual display of event crew bonuses, better showing the failure bonus for the bonus item, and item menu improvements.

Bug fixes:

  • The great Casing/Polyalloy image debate has been put to “rust” by rusting the polyalloys.
  • Extensive changes have been implemented to reduce memory usage and prevent frequent crashes on devices with less available memory. Players with those devices should have a much smoother experience playing the game for longer periods of time. Specific devices that should see an improvement are the iPad 2 and iPad Mini (or equivalent) devices that had 512mb - 1gb of available memory.
  • Squadron leaders can now remove players from their squadron! this is not yet live, more information to follow.
  • Rare rewards now no longer appear on the menu to obtain equipment if they’ve already been claimed
  • The equipment menu now sorts closer to Chroniton efficiency.
  • Fixed some equipment that were at an incorrect rarity from intended.
  • Updated mission text to refer to The Professor instead of Moriarty.
  • Updated Augment/Cardassian/Ferengi Alliance shops to sometimes contain 4-star and 5-star crew.
  • UI polish and improvements.

Version 1.5.0

2016-October-11

New Equipment Menu Interface

  • Long-awaited changes to the Equipment Menu are here! In addition to showing the option to Replicate an item or equipment, the menu will now sort automatically in order of most-likely to least-likely for drops (based on average expected Chroniton cost to get the needed item). The menu also displays better information about the mission type, quality of the reward, challenge level needed to obtain the reward, and the Chroniton cost. This quality-of-life improvement should help players become more efficient in finding items needed to advance their crew!

50th Anniversary ship skin has expired

  • As fun as it was, the 50th Anniversary ship skin for the NCC-1701 Enterprise has returned to the “normal” ship skin. Perhaps it will return in the future!

Privacy Policy is in Support Tab

  • The Disruptor Beam Privacy Policy is now easily accessible from the in-game Support tab.

Faction Events

  • Squadrons will now be able to share crew during Faction Events! The Squadron leader may now choose one of their crew members to share amongst all members of that Squadron, to improve their Squadron’s performance in an event. Squad members can use this shared crew in the event, in addition to their own crew.

Other Text, Bug, and UI Fixes.

  • Events and other parts of the game have had their interface refreshed and improved! Several buttons have been fixed to wrap text correctly, in addition to other text and bug fixes.

New crew have been added to the game with today’s server release for 1.5.0. The new crew include the following limited edition crew that will appear in the Dabo Wheel and future special packs:

An interim release of STAR TREK TIMELINES, version 1.4.1, is being released today, September 12, 2016. This release includes an important bug fix that affects Galaxy Events.

The Replicator allows you to use up excess items in your inventory to create a whole new piece of equipment or component, adding to the ways that you can obtain needed items and equipment. Using the Replicator is as easy as picking an item, putting in the components, and paying a credit fee to create almost any item in the game!

SQUADRONS Changes have also been made to the game to introduce the Squadrons feature for the Second Battle of New York event this week.

STAR TREK TIMELINES version 1.3.2 is available in the App Store and Google Play. It contains the following updates and fixes: Feature Updates:

Cryostasis Vault: This feature has been designed to immortalize all crew that have been fully fused, fully leveled to 100, and fully equipped. Complete crew will be immortalized in the Vault; if a player chooses to dismiss an active crew member that is present in the Vault, he will be able to call that crew back to active service at any time. One-Time Daily Missions: This feature creates a system in which one-time Daily Missions can appear alongside the standard Daily Missions. Tap-and-Hold Training for Crew: This allows multiple training programs to be assigned to a crew with one click, rather than clicking once for each training program used for the crew.

Bug Fixes: -Fix for multiple device and Galaxy Map notifications when shuttle missions are complete. -Minor text changes in several areas to fix incorrect wording or spelling. -Minor changes to the game screen to fix overlap with Special Offers and Event icons on the right side. -Minor other UI changes for readability and correct spacing.

Greetings Captains!

Star Trek Timelines 1.0.7 contains bugfixes and improvements specifically for Android devices. This update makes changes to permissions and fixes some bugs that made interactions between Google Play store and Star Trek Timelines difficult.

The bugs in our Known Issues list are now being worked on for the next release.

Download the latest version for the best experience!

We are working to fix this ASAP and a in game message will be sent to all players once it’s resolved.
