Season 13.5 of Star Trek Online was released on July 18th for PC, and with the new season comes a whole lot of new content. To celebrate, TrekMovie teamed up with Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios to give away five shiny new Son’a Intel Battlecruisers, a Tier 6 ship available to all factions for players on PC.
Reunite with familiar faces in “Brushfire”
The new featured episode, “Brushfire” has you teaming up with the legendary Klingon hero Rodek (portrayed by Tony Todd) to rescue another famous Klingon, Martok (portrayed by J.G. Hertzler), from a prison run by the Son’a (Yes, those Son’a. From Star Trek: Insurrection). The Alliance hopes that Martok will be the key to defeating the Tzenkethi, who continue to terrorize the galaxy with weaponized use of protomatter.
The mid-season update for Season 13 – Escalation also marks the debut of the new Endeavor System, which offers captains new challenges to complete for rewards.
Players can participate in a new endeavor every few days and earn immediate rewards for completing specific in-game tasks. In addition, Season 13.5 introduces a new Ferengi Admiralty Campaign, which lets captains send ships on assignments to earn resources in support of the Ferengi Alliance.
Win a Son’a Intel Battlecruiser
You’ll definitely want to try your hand at winning one of these Tier 6 Son’a ships, which are the vanguard of the Son’a fleet and are capable of withstanding heavy fire while simultaneously undermining their foes’ ability to put up a strong fight, all without sacrificing offensive firepower.
This starship features a Commander Engineering/Intelligence Specialist Bridge Officer seat, and a Lieutenant Universal/Command Specialist Bridge Officer seat.
It features Active Sensor Arrays, which allow this Intel craft to gather information about their target to expose a vulnerability in their defenses.
Intel Ships are all capable of passive Warp Signature Masking. This passive ability grants the Intel ship a tiny amount of Stealth, which will render the Intel craft undetectable at long range.

Just making sure, but this contest is for the T6 Intel Battlecriser, correct? Cause the image you’re using is the T6 Command Science Vessel. Just wanted to clarify.
I’d like to win it, but as I understand it, the warp engine’s are supposed to be straight nacelles – so that the coils can spin!
This ship has been to warp 1 too many times.
I am impressed with the Son’a ships most of the form of the ships.
Through their wide front, they are far more dangerous.
Hope I’ll have a ship like that.
