Cryptic, developer of the MMO Star Trek Online, has launched their second annual Risa event, allowing players to partake in various summer activities. Running from June 5- July 17, the event showcases new rewards and activities, including swimwear, customizable powerboards, races, pets, and a new ship. “It’s the time of year when the beautiful resort planet Risa offers special hospitality to everyone and unveils its newest luxuries,” states Cyptic’s dev blog.

The new ship, the Risian Luxury Cruiser, is only available to Rear Admirals who complete the summer event reputation project. Replacing last year’s Risian Corvette, the Luxury Cruiser comes with a unique console and registry name.
“The Risian Luxury Cruiser is quite agile for a ship within the Cruiser class,” states the ship’s dev blog. “Despite its agility, it sacrifices little durability.”

Players can also recruit unique Risian Duty Officers, purchase their own monkey pet, shop on the new promenade, or even built their own sandcastle. Various purchasable summertime cosmetic pieces are also available. Players can access the Risa event through the mission journal, or by traveling through the Sirius Sector Block. While most summertime activities are only available through the event, Risa itself is accessible year-round.
