Star Trek Online will get new expansion to celebrate anniversary


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.
