You can grab the event from the Events Tab. There are a few ways you can earn progress through the event. You can compete against other players to build and launch a Phonix rocket. Alternatively, you take part in a new boarding event back in time on April 4, 2063.

The event also contains a new event patrol, called One Night in Bozeman. Event rewards include a First Contact Day Badge Box, and First Contact Day Event Grand Prize which contain:

  • "Console – Universal – Temporal Vortex Probe (Account Unlock)
    • Inspired by Borg technology, this probe is capable of opening a dangerously unstable Temporal Vortex that can travel through local space to damage and debilitate enemy vessels in the area.
    • The drone will travel toward the targeted foe's current location, dragging the anomaly with it while emitting chroniton radiation in a large cone facing away from its trajectory.
    • This console also provides a passive boost to Exotic Damage and Cooldown Reduction for Temporal Operative Bridge Officer Abilities, as well as a scaling bonus to Turn Speed that scales with Auxiliary Power.
    • This Console can be equipped in any console slot on any starship.
