Star Trek Online is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game where players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship or become a Klingon Warrior and champion the Empire through the far reaches of the galaxy.

Set in the year 2409, Star Trek Online will allow players to immerse themselves in the future of the Star Trek universe, exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilizations in an ever expanding vast universe. Command a starship as a Federation or a Klingon Captain, outfit it with custom systems and recruit, train and mold a crew into an elite force for exploration and combat. Missions take players into thrilling space battle, planetside for face-to-face combat and even inside starships!

With customizable ships and characters from the Klingon Empire and United Federation of Planets, ground, space and shipboard gameplay and unique options for player-generated content set in the Star Trek universe, Star Trek Online is the MMOG that allows you to boldly go where no one has gone before!

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series, Agents of Yesterday will allow players to create a new Captain in the timeline of Star Trek: The Original Series, where they will take command of an era appropriate ship and begin their new adventure! This third expansion also introduces two well-known characters from Star Trek: The Original Series, five new ships, plus the iconic Enterprise, Constitution class starship.

Agents of Yesterday brings Star Trek fans and Star Trek Online players closer to Star Trek: The Original Series - the beloved series that served as the building block of one of the most popular science-fiction franchises. Fans will be able to take on the role of a Captain from Star Trek: The Original Series and visit multiple locations taken directly from the show, including Taurus VII and Edren (the Gorn Rock Planet). In Agents of Yesterday, five new playable starships from Star Trek: The Original Series will also join the classic Enterprise, Constitution-class starship, including the Daedalus-class Science Vessel.

In an effort to immerse players even more into Star Trek: The Original Series, Agents of Yesterday will feature an exciting cast of characters voiced by beloved Star Trek actors. This includes Chekov, played by Walter Koenig and Montgomery ‘Scotty’ Scott, voiced by Chris Doohan, son of James Doohan. The expansion will also feature the return of Admiral Leeta, reprised by Chase Masterson, and introduce Temporal Agent Daniels from Star Trek: Enterprise, played by Matt Winston.


Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online will kick off its 7th Anniversarywith the release of Season 12 – Reckoning.

Thenewest chapter to the 100% free-to-play MMORPG based on the classic Star Trek franchise releases on PC January 26 and on Xbox One and PS4 at a later date.

Season 12 celebrates Star Trek Online’s upcoming anniversary with giveaways and mini-games, plus two new space queues, a new Research and Development System category and a featured episode titled “Of Signs and Portents.”

This year’s anniversary event for Star Trek Online offers captains the opportunity to complete in-game missions to earn exciting rewards, including the new Tier 6 Lukari Science Vessel, which the community selected the design for last fall. Players can also participate in two daily missions (Omega Molecule Stabilization Daily and Party Patrol) to earn special rewards and play the Omega Molecule Stabilization mini-game with Q to earn materials to construct crafting kits. Festivities also include server-wide giveaways for in-game items, which will take place soon on a daily basis leading up to the anniversary event release.

Season 12 – Reckoning continues the mission from Star Trek Online’s latest update, Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts. 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.

Mission details for Season 12 – Reckoning will be revealed in the new featured episode, “Of Signs and Portents,” which will also feature the game’s first appearance of General Rodek, voiced by actor Tony Todd. The update also unlocks an expansive amount of content for captains to explore, including a new reputation, a new crafting school in the R&D System to create kits and modules, two brand-new space queues (“Gravity Kills” and “The Tzenkethi Front”) and a full space battlezone that has the Alliance pitting itself against the Tzenkethi in a desperate bid to stop the production and deployment of protomatter weapons.
