This year marks the 25th anniversary of the launch of “Deep Space Nine,” and the team behind Star Trek Online couldn’t wait to mark the occasion with our fourth full expansion: Victory is Life. The only way we could see to top our previous expansions was to not only introduce a new player faction in the Jem’Hadar, but also introduce a level cap increase from 60 to 65!
Starting today, captains in Star Trek Online on Xbox One will have the opportunity to create a new captain in their own Jem’Hadar faction. All Jem’Hadar captains will be as formidable right out of space dock as their namesakes, as they will be leveled up to 60 with a fully equipped ship, a fully geared crew, and a variety of completed reputations, specialization trees, and R&D progress. As a fresh captain, you will have all the tools you need at your disposal to dive in and play Star Trek Online at the end game, all 100% for free.
The story that drives Victory is Life dives deep into the history of the Hur’q, the Dominion, and is rich with classic DS9 moments. To tell such an incredible tale we needed an incredible cast, and we were able to feature nearly the entire main cast of “Deep Space Nine.” We have Rene Auberjonois returning as Odo, Nana Visitor as Kira Nerys, Alexander Siddig as Dr. Julian Bashir, Andrew Robinson as Elim Garak, Armin Shimerman as Quark, Aron Eisenberg as Nog, Jeffrey Combs as Weyoun, and Brunt, J.G. Hertzler as Martok, Chase Masterson as Leeta, Max Grodenchik as Rom, Salome Jens as the Female Changeling, and Bumper Robinson as Dukan’Rex. All-in-all, this is the largest cast we’ve ever assembled for an expansion and with a story you must play to believe.
This is an expansion that the team has been wanting to build since the launch of Star Trek Online, and we’re so proud to be able to deliver it during the 25th anniversary celebration.
