With the new show, Picard, Star Trek seems to be experiencing a revival in popularity and in the public discussion. Revival may be a strong word, since it never really went away. Star Trek Online is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week, and there is new content headed your way, captain.
Star Trek Online: Legacy will give you two new episodes and a new Task Force Operation (TOF). In a nod to the original series, players will return to the planet Excalbia. It was featured in the episode “The Savage Curtain”. The residents of that planet forced Kirk and Spock to help them determine good and evil by resurrecting past heroes and villains.
The new episodes, “Measure of Morality” parts 1 and 2, will send Seven of Nine (voiced by Jeri Ryan) and Michael Burnham (voiced by Sonequa Martin-Green) to Excalbia. They will compete in trials against the galaxy’s worst to prove that good is better than evil. Seems like there must be an easier way, such as a philosophy course at your community college, but it’s never easy with omnipotent aliens. Matching wits and brawn with them is also a way to earn credits toward the new T6 Khitomer Alliance Battlecruiser.
The new TFO is called “To Hell With Honor”, and it sends five players to the moon. You’ll need to stop J’Ula and some Klingons from building a shipyard to build a new fleet. The TFO “Awakening” will also be added to the standard playlist. You’ll need to prevent Elachi from shutting down probes and destroying the Mycelium network. All in a day’s work for Starfleet’s finest.
PC players will be able to start now, but the new content in Star Trek Online: Legacy won’t be saying “Engage!” on the PS4 until March 3. Check out the trailer for a look at what’s new, and where you’ll boldly go in about a month.
