To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, the crew of Star Trek Online could not be prouder to announce our third expansion - Agents of Yesterday - is now live! Prepare your classic Original Series tunics and dust off your Mark II phasers; you’re about to take an away mission to an amazing adventure in that classic 60’s era. Our expansion is full of amazing features to bring you a complete and classic experience here in Star Trek Online.

First and foremost, players can create brand new captains in the Original Series era and engage in a story that takes them through the 23rd century and beyond. There will be a sweeping mystery to solve, one that ties into the overall story Star Trek Online has been telling for years. For players that choose to keep playing with their existing characters, we have a can’t-miss set of five episodes that will tie up the story arc we’ve been telling for nearly a year. 

Next, we have an amazing cast of voice actors joining our captains on their adventure through this episodic content. Walter Koenig will be reprising his role as Chekov, and Chris Doohan will be filling in for his father by playing Montgomery “Scotty” Scott. Chase Masterson will be reprising her role as Admiral Leeta from the Mirror Universe, and Matt Winston will be making his Star Trek Online debut as Agent Daniels - originally seen on Star Trek: Enterprise. Finally, we have Joseph Gatt playing the cyborg crewman 0718, a character from the new Star Trek movies who joins us on our first adventure into that universe.

In addition to the amazing story content and voice actors we have a brand new Temporal Reputation that will grant people not only powers and a new suite of endgame gear but new queue-based content to play. The new Temporal Specialization will let people continue to differentiate their captains at endgame, and provides a full complement of brand new bridge officer powers. We will also be running a new “Temporal Agent Recruit” event for a limited time for any of our new TOS era captains. The recruitment system will provide challenges for players to complete that will provide a reward to that captain, and rewards for any other captains on their account.

This expansion truly captures the feel of the Original Series, and I can’t wait to see everyone in game!

Nearly a year ago, the Alliance began to investigate the possibilities of using time travel as a tool to change the past in order to save the future. With the successful construction and deployment of the Annorax-class Science Dreadnought, the first steps were made into a new future of exploration and conflict mitigation. 

Unfortunately, the recent theft of that same ship has potentially planted the seeds of our destruction, and those seeds begin to bear fruit in the episode “Temporal Front”. There will be political intrigue, an enemy plot, and a massive fleet engagement while the past and future of the Alliance hangs in the balance. This Featured Episode will be an escalation point in this budding conflict that you definitely don’t want to miss!

On top of another amazing episode, we have a great collection of features and updates for everyone to enjoy. First and foremost, we have a complete revamp of the Skill System. This revamp will make creating any build you want clearer, simpler, and easier across the board. Everything in the Skill System has been laid out, rethought, continually tested, and iterated on with you on our test shard for nearly two months. I couldn’t be more excited for this change, and I can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on it. 

In addition to the skill revamp we have the brand new Strategist Secondary Specialization, the Romulan Admiralty Campaign, a new and exciting Na’kuhl-themed Red Alert, and last but certainly not least, the ability to slot ship visuals independent from your starship stats.

All in all, this is one of the largest mid-season updates in the history of Star Trek Online, and I can’t wait to see everyone enjoying it in game.

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!

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!

From STO Executive Producer Stephen Ricossa,

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.

Live Long and Prosper.
