Ten years ago, the first ever Star Trek Massively Multiplayer Online Game released to the world. Now, it’s time to cement your Legacy among the stars. Star Trek Online is happy to bring our 10th Anniversary Update, Star Trek Online: Legacy, to Xbox One today!
This update has been a huge labor of love from the entire team, celebrating not only the last 10 years of your adventures in the final frontier, but the last 54 years of Star Trek. As huge Trekkies, we wanted to make sure you had an update that was worthy of carrying on the legacy of the final frontier.
The biggest part of this update is one of our most impactful episodes. In Measure of Morality, Captains will return to Excalbia, the planet from the classic Original Series episode “The Savage Curtain.” When Kirk and Spock visited that place, the alien inhabitants forced them to battle some of the worst monsters from history to determine which was stronger, Good or Evil.
Now, you’ll journey with two of Star Trek’s biggest bastions of good: Seven of Nine, played by Jeri Ryan, and Michael Burnham, played by Sonequa Martin-Green. Martin-Green is making her debut in Star Trek Online, while Ryan is returning for the first time since the Voyager themed update, Delta Rising.
The Excalbians have upgrades their simulations since the days of Kirk and Spock, and this massive, two-part episode will take you through the history of Star Trek Online, asking players to make moral decisions that affect how the mission unfolds. Can you convince the Excalbians that Good is the stronger force? Or will your actions lead them to choosing Evil as their guiding principle for all time?
But that’s not all that’s coming in Star Trek Online: Legacy. We’re bringing a brand new Task Force Operation, To Hell with Honor. The viscous outlaw Klingon general J’Ula is building a ship yard in secret, and the Klingon chancellor, J’Mpok, tasks you with its destruction. Listen to Klingon Opera as you traverse this moon, destroying the shipyard, and eventually tangling with massive enemy walkers from the Mycelial Network.
Completing the Episode and the Task Force Operation will bring you closer to unlocking a brand new ship, the Khitomer Class. In the year 2411, when Star Trek Online takes place, the Klingon Empire and the Federation are finally allies, and they have designed their first ship together. The Khitomer Class brings together the best of both design styles, in a ship that signals friendship and cooperation across the galaxy. You can unlock the Khitomer on all your characters by playing Measure of Morality, To Hell with Honor, and our Anniversary Omega Molecule Stabilization Event.
It’s been an amazing ten years of Star Trek Online, Captains. If you haven’t yet joined us in the Final Frontier, now is the best time to jump in and start your own Star Trek adventure. Come see the more than 600 ships you can command from all over Star Trek history, and adventure with more than 40 Star Trek characters, all portrayed by their original actors, like Leonard Nimoy and LeVar Burton. It’s the best, most immersive Star Trek experience you can have today, and it’s absolutely free.
For both new players and old, we also have a wonderful gift. Log in right now and you can claim the uniform worn by Starfleet in the new series Star Trek: Picard. This sleek, stylish uniform looks great on all of your crew, and like all of our uniforms, is fully customizable. Even if this uniform isn’t your style, there’s nearly every look ever worn in Star Trek available to wear in Star Trek Online.
We want to take a moment to say a huge thank you to our players – for the past 10 years, you’ve journeyed with us every step of the way, and we have loved taking that journey with you. The future is bright, and together we can see what’s just beyond the next star on the horizon. Live Long and Prosper, Captains.
