Star Trek Online 7th Anniversary Features New Episode and More
Players have been boldly going where no one has gone before for seven years now in the online rpg based upon the iconic Star Trek franchise. Cryptic has revealed some of the features starship captains can look forward to when the Star Trek Online 7th anniversary celebration kicks off later this month. The chief reward players can snag is a new Tier 6 Lukari Science Vessel by completing in-game missions during the event. There will also be server-wide giveaways on a daily basis leading up to the STO 7th anniversary, and players can also partake in two daily missions to earn special rewards and gain materials to construct crafting kits.
The main attraction for the Star Trek Online 7th anniversary is the introduction of the new Of Signs and Portents featured episode that is part of the Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts expansion and kicks off Season 12. The synopsis for this episode reads, "Under the leadership of Captain Kuumaarke, the Lukari have set out on a journey to investigate some unusual activity in an unexplored region of the Alpha Quadrant. Upon further inspection, they discover data that suggests weaponized use of protomatter. Fearing the Tzenkethi are behind this, they put out a call for help to the Alliance, who tasks captains from across the galaxy to help the Lukari prevent a looming cataclysmic attack."
Other features abound for the Star Trek Online 7th anniversary. A new reputation faction is being introduced (the Lukari) as well as a new crafting school. Two new space queues are being added (Gravity Kills and The Tzenkethi Front) and a full space battlezone pitting the Alliance against the Tzenkethi. Overall, there's a nice chunk of fresh content for mmo players to sink their teeth into.
The STO 7th anniversary will kick off on January 26th for the PC and for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at a later date.
