Remember Star Trek Online? The MMORPG was released back in 2010 for PC and later ported to PS4 and Xbox One in 2016. This autumn the game will be updated in line with the currently airing Star Trek series, first on PC and soon after on PS4 and Xbox One. The year is 2256, and the action takes place at the height of the Klingon War. Here's a bit of story:
Age of Discovery opens in the year 2256, just after the Battle at the Binary Stars. In the wake of a brutal war against the Klingons, Starfleet Captains must face J'Ula, matriarch of the House of Mo'Kai and sister of T'Kuvma, who seeks to alter the destiny of the Alpha Quadrant. Players will need to rely on the help of fellow Starfleet Academy Cadet Syliva Tilly (played by Discovery actress Mary Wiseman), who has come home to assist with training and see them off on their first assignment. From there, they will journey to iconic locations from Star Trek: Discovery, like the Dilithium Mines of Corvan II, explore the new experimental Crossfield class Starship, the U.S.S. Glenn, and defend Starbase 1 from a fearsome attack by the Klingon House of D'Ghor.
Players can now create their own Federation character from the Discovery era. There will also be two episodes for Starfleet Academy cadets, "a new Task Force Operation to defend Starbase 1 and new reputations that expand the game's Reputation System to Tier 6 and unlock powerful new rewards". More details will be revealed later this year.
