This is the 4th and last major update to SRS Systems this year (probably). Please read carefully as much of this concerns you.
Please visit our new lottery page to learn all about the SRS Lottery and how you can take part, including purchasing lottery tickets with merits! This page is found under the News on the main menu of each page.

New Merit Packs
NEW - Two new Merit packs have been added in October 2019. These are:
Career Bypass Pack - With this pack you can still receive the bonus MRP for using a captain of a specific career as listed in the weekly events even if you are using a different career. E.G. If the current career bonus is Engineer with this pack you will still receive the bonus if you use a Tactical or Science career. This also goes for specific species events.
The cost of this pack is 60 merits as it directly increases your MRP by a reasonable amount
Special Event Bypass Pack - This pack allows you to gain the bonus for the weekly special event even if you don't qualify. E.G. The event may be for Cruisers but you will be able to gain the bonus no matter what ship you fly.
The cost of this pack is 200 merits as it very substantially boosts your MRP score.
Use the "My Packs" button to find out what packs you have, if they are available and if you are eligible.
Use merits to purchase lottery tickets
Here's how it works.
Apart from buying tickets with EC or Master keys if you are also in SRS MACO, SPEC OPS or Section 47 -SRS- you can also buy lottery tickets with the merits you earn whilst running MRP events.
Each ticket costs 5 Merits
To purchase the tickets simply ask the CFOPS officer running the event to purchase a ticket for you. They will click on the button above your name in the MRP Calc sheet. One click equals one ticket, if you want 10 tickets then it will be 10 clicks, here's what this part of the MRP Calc sheet looks like:
The 5 merits will automatically be deducted from your total and neither you nor the CFOPS need do anything else.
Tickets via merits will be checked daily and updated as purchases on the lottery entries listing. Obviously you can only use merits for lottery tickets if you have enough merits.
MRP Prizes for 2019 Finalised
Due to the events of 2019 leading to many members suspending their activities within STO for a good part of the year, the prizes this year are not on the same scale as last year. However we can reveal now that they are still something to aim for.

5th Prize - 50 million EC
6th Prize - 25 million EC

New Exploration Events System
For 2020 I am working on an exploration events system. This is proving very difficult without the foundry but I have some ideas on how this will work. It will be pure exploration, scientific analysis, data collection and alien species interactions with reporting back to a dedicated website for MRP, prizes and awards. If any of you have any ideas how this could work please mail me in game.
We still have a number of vacancies available. Please take a look at the Vacancy page and apply for anything you are interested in.
