When we think of Star Trek: Online, it surprises me that the MMO has been around for 10 years now. Over the next month, STO will celebrate its 10th anniversary through an exciting new expansion, Legacy.
The anniversary sees new content come to the game in the form of starships and missions. Battleships, Enterprises and much more join the game over the course of the next month. The game also sees more Star Trek characters joining its ranks.
Legendary Star Trek characters, Seven of Nine and Commander Michael Burnham are joining the game. The new episode will be a journey through locations and events related to STO’s history. You’ll meet past allies and foes you’ve faced before.
“When the galaxy is threatened”, “We must heed the call to action!”
The New Episodes
Measure of Morality Parts 1 & 2 is available to all factions. Captains are going to be sent to check out an anomaly, where they’ll be taken away to “Exaliabla“. Forced into a strange game, they’ll need to prove that good really is better than evil. Through this challenge, players will journey to locations that span the scope of Star Trek Online. Oh, you’ll also face some old enemies as well.
As earlier mentioned, Captains will team up with Seven of Nine and Michael Burham. Having these two join Star Trek Online is fantastic, especially as they’re the forefront of current Star Trek.
Jeri Ryan reprises her role as Seven of Nine for Star Trek: Picard. Meanwhile, Sonequa Martin-Green returns as Commander Michael Burnham in Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 later this year.
Star Trek Online’s anniversary event starts today! The Omega Event runs from January 28th, 2020 till February 27th, 2020. Featuring a brand new grand prize, the Tier 6 Alliance Battlecruiser.
This brand new starship is listed as a Khitomer-class. It represents the culmination of joint research from the Federation, The Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Republic.
To earn the Alliance Battlecruiser on ALL your characters is easy. You’ll need to participate in the eligible activities of the anniversary event over the course of the month. Once you’ve earned 20, or more, Daily Progress then you can claim the brand new starship.
Task Force Operation
To Hell With Honour, is a brand new Task Force Operation. It’s set on the surface of a moon where starship Captains will face off against J’ULA. She has a fleet of Mo’Kai Klingons slowly becoming operational, meaning players will need to defeat them before they’re ready to launch.
The popular Mycelium Task Force Operation from the “Awakening” update has seen a change. Players can now find it on the game’s standard rotation of TFO’s.
The 10th anniversary of Star Trek Online sees a key focus on starships, as it should. STO is releasing “one of the biggest bundles” they’ve ever made. It sees ten iconic starships, like the Enterprise-D and defiant, released with new stats and visuals.
Friday the 13th of February will see the bundles of starships release to everyone.
Star Trek Online is Free-To-Play on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. Today’s anniversary content is LIVE on PC but will launch on March 3rd for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. To download and play STO, click here.
