Today Star Trek Online reaches its sixth anniversary, and everyone at the studio could not be prouder. We know as well as anyone that this is a feat that is rarely achieved, and our thanks go out to the community for their support, feedback, and long-term engagement with Star Trek Online. We love developing this game and we consider ourselves lucky to have such an amazing community to develop it with.
After a long war and the darkness of midnight, we’re finally ready to see the light with Season 11: New Dawn! We’ve put the past behind us and look towards a brighter future filled with a new story arc, exciting gameplay, updates to existing content, and the return of Chase Masterson as Mirror Leeta.
The Terran Empire had an Iconian War of their own and they’re now on their way to the Prime Universe to take the fight to us. Everyone will have to stand firm and hold the line at Deep Space Nine to keep the Mirror Universe forces under command of Terran Admiral Leeta at bay. With two brand new queues centered in and around Deep Space Nine, and a battlezone that takes place in the Badlands, there will never be a shortage of work to be done. To help you with this task, the Alliance has provided gear for the Terran Taskforce Reputation to keep you and your ship kitted out with the best gear for the job.
The Alliance also wants to get back to their roots and see what they can discover in the far reaches of the Alpha Quadrant. There will be two new story missions, one at launch and one shortly thereafter, that will be the first steps on the journey into a brand new story arc that will run through 2016. This is a great time to get in on the ground floor and enjoy the story all at once as a community.
When you’re not in your command chair captaining your ship through the Alpha Quadrant, you can use the new Admiralty system to send your personal fleet of ships on missions. The strategic and tactical elements of this system will give you a true admiral experience
Last and certainly not least, we’ve completely overhauled the existing Cardassian Arc. There are now four new story missions that show the origins of the True Way and Alpha Quadrant Dominion, as well as the influence of the Terran Empire. This story content will give players a much smoother leveling experience, great rewards, and additional information to give the Star Trek Online story even more depth.
Season 11: New Dawn is overflowing with content, and I can’t wait to see you all in game!
Star Trek Online
Widely-acclaimed as one of the most impressive pieces of story-telling in Star Trek Online, “Midnight” caps off a narrative arc five years in the making. It is now time for the galaxy to unite for survival and end the war. Are you ready to close out the end of an era before New Dawn?

Five years of chasing the Iconians' shadows and fighting their minions, all leading up to this moment! With the launch of Season 10: The Iconian War, the Iconians' Heralds begin their invasion, with an occupation force already burning Qo'noS to the ground. Join the front lines and log in today!
The Iconian War is here, and it’s time to see if the alliance is up to the task of repelling the Iconian Invasion. The Iconian War will begin in two episodes that release with Season 10, featuring the voice talents of Star Trek: Voyager actors Robert Duncan McNeil as Tom Paris and Lisa LiCicero as Miral Paris. You will be engaging the Iconians in three queues. The first two represent two fronts of the same battle for Qo'noS, where you will face the fearsome Iconian Heralds in space and ground combat. In the third queue, you will assault a Herald Sphere, a gateway control hub for Herald ships, and attempt to prevent the invasion of other worlds in our galaxy. This war will span months and require teamwork and sacrifice from the entire alliance. What you’re going to see this season is only the beginning.
We've also expanded the Pilot Specialization, giving it a full suite of abilities for hotshot Captains. Finally, we've completely overhauled our existing sector space, converting from 18 sector maps into 3 quadrant maps, improving the feeling of being in the vastness of space.
Learn more about Season 10 in this blog post. Log in today, Captains - you're needed on the front lines!
Last Friday we lost someone dear to us. All of us. Not just the people of the Star Trek community, but anyone who ever tried with varying success to make the Vulcan salute. Anyone who ever said “Live Long and Prosper,” whether or not they knew who brought that phrase into our cultural lexicon, and anyone who can understand the impact a positive public figure can have on the world. Leonard Nimoy was more than just a Star Trek icon—he was a cultural icon. His passing has been felt farther and wider than I think he could have possibly known, and I feel it's that humility, despite all of his skills, talents, and fame, that made him someone we all care about.
I’m certain everyone who knew of Nimoy's work will remember him in their own special way, and I want to make sure Star Trek Online also has an in-game way for people to remember him as well. As of this morning, there are several locations throughout the game that will allow people to take a moment to remember Spock, Leonard Nimoy, and other departed friends from Star Trek history.
Based on where our community chose to congregate and pay their respects, we will be replacing the central structure on the fountain on Vulcan with a stone statue of Spock with the inscription “Live Long and Prosper."
We will be adding the same statue to New Romulus with the inscription “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few”, as building toward Romulan and Vulcan reunification was one of Spock’s great life works. The Romulan Republic would not exist without his teachings. Through the next week we will also hang black flags of mourning in Earth Spacedock, Qo'noS, and New Romulus, so everyone that passes through those hubs will know we have lost someone important to us all.
Finally, we will be adding a memorial plaque to those same locations for not only Leonard Nimoy, but for others in the Star Trek family who have passed. People will be able to interact with this memorial and read the names, the dates of their birth and passing, and a personal quote where possible. In this small way, we hope to honor the memory and contribution of those who helped shape Star Trek into the cultural touchstone it is today.
Captains! We’re happy to announce that both our Crystalline Cataclysm Event and our R&D Pack Promotion are now live! From now until March 26th at 10:00AM PST, Federation, Klingon, and Romulan Republic Captains will be able to fight off the Crystalline Entity earning even better rewards and have a chance at getting the new Tier 6 Jem’Hadar Strike Ship from our R&D Packs!
The Star Trek Online team is saddened to hear of the passing of Star Trek icon Leonard Nimoy.
As an actor, Mr. Nimoy helped define Trek from its first days. Spock was simultaneously an outsider and a member of the inner circle, an alien and the most human of all. As a writer and director, he shaped some of the Enterprise's most memorable adventures. Outside of Star Trek, he was a teacher, a poet, an artist and a father.
We were honored to have Mr. Nimoy as part of Star Trek Online. He helped us announce the development of STO at the Las Vegas convention in 2009, and returned to portray Spock again in the game itself. The few hours we were able to spend talking to him about Star Trek, its meaning and the impact Trek has had on its fans are something we will always treasure.
Today we honor Mr. Nimoy's legacy and extend our condolences to his family, his friends and his fans.
