Fresh off the back of the tenth anniversary of the Star Trek MMO, Star Trek Online, a second anniversary celebration is underway for the game’s developers, Cryptic Studios. The sci-fi favourite is playing host to its 20th Season and, with it, a generous giveaway bundle to mark the 20th anniversary of Cryptic Studios, in the year 2020. It’s almost as if it was planned...
Star Trek Online: House Divided is the title of the latest season, which delves into a Klingon-centric plot with some familiar characters and respective voice talent front the real-life show. Robert O’Reilly is a new voice for the STO roster, but fans will recognise him as the actor for Chancellor Gowron in The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. Within the Star Trek MMO, O’Reilly will be playing Aakar, Gowron’s ancestor, while J.G. Hertzler returns as Martok of Deep Space Nine fame. The fact that these voice actors are willing to reprise roles for this particular MMO certainly speaks volumes to its reputation.
Within the update, the classic Klingon tutorial experience has been given a visual overhaul with new environments, cutscenes, voice over and more. There are new hair and face options for Klingon Captains and a few new models for familiar Klingon characters and ships.
Engaging in the month-long House Divided event or the two new available episodes will earn players a Red Angel Suit, a 5-person space TFO over the Klingon Penal Colony of Rura Penthe, along with a new Angel’s Wake Lockbox which contains the Ba’ul ship as seen in the Star Trek: Discovery episode “The Sound of Thunder,” and Ba’ul Obelisk from Season 2 of Discovery.
