Sure, Star Trek Timelines isn’t the first mobile game that comes to mind when you think of Valentine’s Day, but give Disruptor Beam credit for trying to change that with an in-game event themed for the season when cards and candy flow like Romulan ale.
The Season of Love event, which kicks off Thursday, Feb. 16 and runs through Feb. 20, puts every Vulcan in the universe in danger … of what Disruptor Beam is calling “amorous peril.” It seems that the time-space continuum doesn’t like being messed with in the way we’ve seen in Timelines, so it’s fighting back by activating the pon farr mating period for all Vulcans.
Unless you’d like the Vulcans you know to end up with plak tow, it behooves you to get your matchmaking skills on. Think of it like that episode of Futurama where the gang needed to find Zoidberg a mate, which in turn was a parody of the classic Star Trek episode “Amok Time.” You’ll have access to unique Federation Faction Missions, and using Lwaxana Troi or any version of Kirk or Spock will give you bonuses while you complete them.
Earn enough Event Victory Points and you’ll unlock Event Threshold Rewards when the Season of Love ends. Plus you can acquire Special Event Crew like Ambassador Troi, Kal-if-fee Kirk and Kal-if-fee Spock along the way.
See? You’re going to think of Star Trek Timelines next time Feb. 14 rolls around, guaranteed. Well, almost guaranteed. Prepare for adventure and romance now by beaming up the game from the App Store or Google Play.
