Accolades in Star Trek Online are special missions that track various achievements throughout a player's career in the Star Trek Online universe and unlock various rewards at certain milestones. Players can earn Accolades for many different actions in STO such as defeating a certain number of critters from a species or faction, completing main storyline missions, dealing tons of damage of a certain energy type, and many more.
For every Accolade that is completed players will earn Accolade Points, so earn a bunch and compare your score to your friends!
How can I view my Accolade Points?
Simply open your Journal (the 'J' key by default) and go to the Accolades tab. The total number of Accolade Points you have earned is listed at the bottom of that tab.
If you look at "completed" Accolades you will be able to see specific details about the Accolades you have finished and how many Accolade points you have earned for each one. If you look at "in progress" Accolades you can see your current progress towards completing a specific Accolade.
Will I get retroactive credit for objectives I completed before the system went live?
While some new Accolades may require repeating things you have done, we have been tracking many of the statistics for Accolades since Star Trek Online launched. Accolades that you have already completed should have been awarded automatically when this feature went live.
Besides in-game titles, what else can I earn by completing Accolades?
Titles are the primary reward right now (along with bragging rights!), however, certain Accolades will grant special rewards to you such as unique abilities.
Are Accolade Points displayed on the website?
Our web team is working on implementing this feature, however, it is currently unavailable.
My captain has a title earned from an Accolade - how can I tell which Accolade earned me that specific title?
When viewing a completed Accolade the description should include what specific title was awarded.
Can I purchase anything using Accolade Points?
You can't purchase anything using these points. The number of Accolade Points you have is simply a tally of your accomplishments. Think of it like a score, rather than a currency.
