Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment have announced the third expansion for Star Trek Online, right in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series.
Dubbed “Agents of Yesterday”, the expansion will allow players to create a new Captain in the timeline of Star Trek: The Original Series and will introduce five new TOS-era starships, the iconic Enterprise and two characters from the original series: Chekov and Scotty.
“Star Trek Online has been able to explore other eras in the franchise from Star Trek: Enterprise to Star Trek: Voyager, while continuing to add to the core Star Trek narrative,” said Steve Ricossa, executive producer of Star Trek Online. “The 50th Anniversary of Star Trek presents a unique opportunity and challenge for our team, to faithfully venture back in time to one of the most iconic science-fiction settings and eras in television history. Combining Star Trek: The Original Series with Star Trek Online allows us to take players on some new and unique adventures in a time period that is beloved by fans.”
Players will be able to visit several locations from the classic show, including the Gorn Rock planet and Taurus VII.
