A new era is coming to Star Trek Online, or a New Dawn as the game’s newest season is so fittingly called. Following the conclusion of The Iconian War, Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios will launch Star Trek Online: Season 11 – New Dawn on October 27th, 2015. The season will mark the beginning of a brand new era for Star Trek Online, as it includes an all-new reputation, the debut of the Admiralty System and an in-game story arc lasting beyond 2016.
New Dawn begins in the grim aftermath of The Iconian War. The war has officially ended in the Mirror Universe and the Terran Empire has invaded the Badlands, under the leadership of Mirror Leeta (reprised by Chase Masterson from “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”). Leeta has claimed the galaxy for her own and it’s up to player to defend the universe from her MIrror forces. The new season also introduces the discovery of a planet inhabited by a new civilization of bi-pedal humanoids and the arrival of a mysterious time-traveler.
Along with the new lore coming to the game, Star Trek Online will also debut a new reputation and the Admiralty System in Season 11. The Admiralty System allows players to send their starships on challenging assignments to retrieve valuable assets. They’ll be able to earn progress through two campaigns, representing major factions within the galaxy – the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire.
