I completed the "Midway" mission and was awarded a Saipan for 24 hours. Except I already have a Saipan.

A 6-point captain came along with the deal. Do I get to keep him, or is he going to turn into a pumpkin tomorrow? I don't see anything in the UI that indicates he is time-limited.

From the event page:

Please note: if you already own either or both aircraft carriers, you will not receive the rental or any compensation for the ship. However, you will still receive the Commander.

So how lucky do you feel? (At least you do keep the Captain)

A 6-point captain ain't nothing.

And it's not like I did anything special to complete the mission.

Well its my first tier 8 CV to try. Not sure its worth even playing more then the few times i tired it in the 24hrs i get it. Its damage potential does seem high per rocket, torp, or bomb, but the squadron size is terrible for how long of a restoration time planes have. With that squad size at tier 8 it should be blazing fast restore time. If you get uptiered you are lucky to get one shot off before all planes are down. With a high service cost for CVs its not easy to make much in credits. Skip playing as a team with that ship, just gotta farm what little damage you can.

Im about to unlock the lex, looks like a better all around carrier. 

Anyone know if you get your credits back or at least the mods put in inventory after it goes away?

That's Saipan.  Higher tier a/c, lower quantities, slow regen.  Those Tiny Tims can hurt CLs pretty easily, but can be a pain to hit DDs with.  Can be done, but not as easy, as say, Enterprise 5-inch rockets.

Enterprise, otoh, lower tier a/c, and fast regen.  Kaga is similar to Enterprise, but has tons already on deck, and not quite as fast on the regen.
