Chronitons

Chronitons Chroniton are a kind of energy used to play missions in Star Trek Timelines. They are exchanged for Away Team and Space Battle Missions. Each mission and level have a pre-determined number of chronitons needed to execute (minimum 4, max 24, currently). If no chronitons are available, a mission cannot start.

Many screens in the game will display how many chronitons are available and the total amount that can be stored, in the format of (usable/max).

Earning Chronitons

Chronitons can be earned by:

  • Passage of time: A countdown timer of 6 minutes per chroniton is set in the game.
  • Chroniton Boost: Collect 20 Chroniton at any of 3 specified times during the day (12:00pm, 6:00pm, and 9:00pm local time)
  • Cadet Challenges: Missions available on certain days that use tickets to reward chronitons.
  • Daily Missions and Fleet Targets: several objectives for a potential total of 150Chroniton.
  • Gauntlet rewards: each reward has a chance of awarding between 20 and 100Chroniton.
  • Voyages: Chronitons are part of the reward table of Voyages. Before the first Dilemma players might receive batches of 1Chroniton; between the first and third dilemma they have a chance to receive batches of 4Chroniton, and from the third dilemma onwards players might receive batches of 10Chroniton, meaning that long voyages can return with hundreds of chronitons. Additionally, Dilemmas also reward chronitons, usually 30Chroniton.
  • Purchase: 50 Chroniton in exchange for 150 Dilithium (dilithium). The price increases every two purchases, making the cumulative cost:
    • 50 Chroniton for 150 Dilithium
    • 100 Chroniton for 300 Dilithium
    • 150 Chroniton for 500 Dilithium VIP 1
    • 200 Chroniton for 700 Dilithium
    • 250 Chroniton for 950 Dilithium
    • 300 Chroniton for 1200 Dilithium
    • 350 Chroniton for 1500 Dilithium
    • 400 Chroniton for 1800 Dilithium
    • 450 Chroniton for 2150 Dilithium
    • 500 Chroniton for 2500 Dilithium
    • 550 Chroniton for 2900 Dilithium
    • 600 Chroniton for 3300 Dilithium
    • 650 Chroniton for 3750 Dilithium
    • 700 Chroniton for 4200 Dilithium
    • 750 Chroniton for 4700 Dilithium
    • 800 Chroniton for 5200 Dilithium VIP 14
  • Captain Leveling: When you attain sufficient Captain XP to level up, you will automatically receive a chroniton boost equal to the chroniton storage capacity at your new level.

Keeping chronitons below the max (so that they will always recharge), it is possible to collect up to 300 Chroniton each day for free (24x10 from recharge, 3x20 from boosts).

Chroniton Boost times during local Standard time:

  • 11:00 - 13:00
  • 17:00 - 19:00
  • 20:00 - 22:00

Chroniton Boost times during local Daylight Savings time:

  • 12:00 - 14:00
  • 18:00 - 20:00
  • 21:00 - 23:00

Chronitons are sometimes supplied to players as free gifts in their message inbox. The largest such chroniton gifts have often been delivered as compensation with some apology from Disruptor Beam after an unfortunate incident on their part, leading to the coining of the term Sorryton.

Chroniton Capacity

There is a hard limit on how many chronitons can be stored without side effects. It is influenced by Captain Level (from 30Chroniton to 150Chroniton stored) and by the Transporter Room of the player's Fleet's Starbase (up to 30Chroniton), meaning a theoretical total of 180Chroniton stored.

If a player has exceeded their capacity, chronitons will stop recharging (i.e. no new chroniton every six minutes). However even one a player has exceeded it is possible to gain chronitons from other sources (Chroniton Boosts, Cadet Missions, Daily Targets, Voyages): these chronitons will be stored and will never be lost. A player can keep accumulating chronitons through these other means, and there is no known limit to the amount of chronitons that can be kept.
