The galaxy is threatened by its own past, as J’Ula, sister of T’kuvma from “Star Trek: Discovery,” has come forward to the year 2411. Her ancient warrior ways and lust for blood threaten to bring the entire Klingon Empire into a dark, bloody civil war.
The next major update for Star Trek Online is now live on Xbox One. Welcome to House Divided, the beginning of our epic Year of Klingon. A brand new face is joining our stories cast – Robert O’Reilly, who played Chancellor Gowron in “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.” He’ll be portraying Aakar, Gowron’s ancestor and a loyal servant of the treacherous Ju’la. Gowron was a brilliant, crafty leader, and time will tell if those traits came from his Grandfather.
An old fan favorite returns to oppose Aakar. J.G. Hertzler is stepping back into the role of Martok, rejoining our cast as our focus turns again to the Klingon Empire. With the incursion of J’ula into the modern era, more and more Klingons are listening to her message of a return to “traditional” ways. What side will Martok choose?
It’s the best time to start a new Klingon. The classic Klingon tutorial experience, has been given a visual overhaul, with new environments, new cutscenes, voice overs, and more. Playing this classic story now feels like a brand new game. In addition, characters like J’Mpok, Adet’pa, Kagran and Worf have been given entirely new models, as have several classic Klingon ships, and there are new hair and face options for male Klingon Captains. This is the only the beginning of the Year of Klingon, and the classic updates will continue as we move forward.
Those seeking the power of time itself can engage in the House Divided event, playing through the brand new TFO, Best Served Cold, three new Patrols, or the two new episodes in the House Divided story to earn themselves a Red Angel Suit. This powerful armor allows your character to transform into a flying warrior capable of sending their enemies through time itself.
How you play is up to you, but make sure you retain your honor. The Year of Klingon has only just begun. Qapla’, Captains.
