Admittedly, it’d be pretty difficult to have a Deep Space Nine-centered expansion to Star Trek Online without some of the original cast. Luckily for Perfect World and fans of the MMO, 12 of the series’ original members are a part of the fully-revealed Victory is Life cast.
Here’s the complete cast list as sent to us in the latest press announcement from the game:
- Alexander Siddig as Doctor Julian Bashir, former Chief Medical Officer of Deep Space Nine.
- Andrew Robinson as Councilor Elim Garak, formerly “just a simple tailor” and covert operative for Cardassia.
- Armin Shimerman as Quark, DS9’s resident Ferengi entrepreneur and bartender.
- Aron Eisenberg as Captain Nog, the first Ferengi to join Starfleet, who grew up on DS9.
- Bumper Robinson who appeared as the teenage Jem’Hadar in the landmark episode, “The Abandoned” and will play Elder First Dukan Rex.
- Jeffrey Combs as Weyoun (a cunning Vorta diplomat) and Brunt (a Liquidator of the Ferengi Commerce Authority).
- J.G. Hertzler as General Martok, hero of the Klingon Empire.
- Max Grodénchik as Grand Nagus Rom, leader of the Ferengi, brother to Quark and father to Nog.
- Chase Masterson as Leeta, former Bajoran dabo girl and wife of Ferengi Grand Nagus Rom.
- Nana Visitor as Kira Nerys, Kai of the Bajoran people.
- René Auberjonois as Odo, former Chief of Security at DS9, who is now a Dominion Ambassador.
- Salome Jens as the Female Changeling, one of the Founders of the Dominion.
In addition to the cast list reveal, Star Trek Online detailed a variety of special events running for an entire month in the lead-up to the launch of Victory is Life.
First, a contest with prizes like a six-day Caribbean trip onboard the Star Trek: The Cruise and every single ship in the PC version’s C-Store is up for grabs. Second, a series of week-long Faction Allegiance Campaigns for each of STO’s four factions are planned where players can represent their favorite group on social media for in-game prizes. These factional events will start with the Romulans on the week of May 7th.
We’re sure that there are more than a few fans of Deep Space Nine who will be happy to see familiar names reprising their roles for Victory is Life. Now it’s just a matter of sitting on our hands and waiting collectively while June arrives.
