Captain's log, stardate 140320091257. The Romulans are getting restless. Peace has always been a fickle thing in this sector, but since the discovery of a new power source on the beta plane they've found new strength to.... Oh wait,,.. The PTR has gotten an update!

Displays for vehicles, class colors, and off-map pings have been added as well. * Players first entering any dungeon that will result in a lock-out timer will be warned if they are going to be saved to the instance. This warning will include an option to port to the nearest graveyard before being saved. For a more complete list, see MMOC or WoR about this update.
