  • The function of this Transponder for claiming the rewards is not functioning at this time.
  • Progress for these rewards will still be tracked so when the system becomes available, captains will receive the rewards they have earned by playing through content as a 23rd Century captain.
  • The Temporal Transponder can be moved into the bank of the captains if players wish to not have it take inventory space for the time being.
The patch is available in Star Trek Online right now along with the new "Agents of Yesterday" content.
