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!


Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online: Legacy is now live on PC and launches on PS4 and Xbox One on March 3.

Next week, the free-to-play space MMORPG celebrates ten years of exploring and expanding the iconic Star Trek universe. To celebrate this milestone, the development team at Cryptic Studios is releasing brand new content under license of ViacomCBS Consumer Products that pays homage to various Star Trek series spanning the franchise’s incredible 50+ year history.

This kicks off with two new featured episodes, starring Seven of Nine (voiced by Jeri Ryan) from the Star Trek: Voyager and brand new Star Trek: Picard series on CBS All Access, plus Starfleet’s very own Michael Burnham (voiced by Sonequa Martin-Green) from Star Trek: Discovery. Star Trek Online: Legacy also introduces a brand new space TFO and special anniversary events that allow players to earn the all new Khitomer Alliance Battlecruiser.

“These last ten years have been an incredible journey for Star Trek Online,” said Andre Emerson, the game’s executive producer. “And it feels like we’re only getting started. Over the last decade, we’ve had the honor and privilege of exploring all of the different series that really defined the Star Trek franchise. Looking forward, we are excited about diving further into new shows like Picard and Discovery and want to thank our wonderful community of players for being the reason why opportunities like this even exist.” 

“We could not be more proud of the team at Cryptic Studios for helping Star Trek Online become the game it is today,” said Yoon Im, CEO of Perfect World Entertainment. “Ten years in development is a major accomplishment. The game has remained a success during its tenure due to the support of our players and the dev team’s dedication to bringing the Star Trek universe to life.”

Originally released in February 2010, Star Trek Online is officially one of the longest running Star Trek series in the history of the franchise and offers 183 episodes, over 50 queues (now known as Task Force Operations), four major expansions and 18 full seasons of playable content. Over the last ten years, the game has explored some of Star Trek’s most beloved series, including The Original Series, Voyager, Enterprise, Deep Space Nine and The Next Generation. Star Trek Online has also welcomed dozens of original cast members to the game, including Leonard Nimoy (Spock), LeVar Burton (Geordi LaForge), Michael Dorn (Worf), Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar), Armin Shimerman (Quark), René Auberjonois (Odo), Mary Wiseman (Tilly), Anthony Rapp (Stamets) and many more.

Star Trek Online: Legacy pays loving tribute to all the different Star Trek series featured in the game over the last decade. In honor of the episode “The Savage Curtain” from the third season of The Original Series, the game’s newest missions test the morality of the galaxy’s finest. In the original episode, Captain Kirk and Spock came across the omnipotent Excalbians, who forced them into an experiment to understand the difference between good and evil by resurrecting history’s greatest heroes and villains. Legacy’s two new featured episodes bring players back to the planet of Excalbia to face a similar test. Captains will face off against iconic enemies from some of the game’s most popular content updates, while teaming up with some of Starfleet’s finest, who represent the epitome of good. This includes former Borg drone and U.S.S. Voyager crew member, Seven (voiced by Jeri Ryan), from the brand new Star Trek: Picard series, which made its highly anticipated debut on January 23 on CBS All Access in the United States and internationally on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and in Canada on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and OTT service Crave. Players will also rely on help from Starfleet’s brilliant commander, Michael Burnham (voiced by Sonequa Martin-Green), from the popular Star Trek: Discovery series. 

A full list of game features released today with Star Trek Online: Legacy includes:

  • Two New Featured Episodes – Captains hailing from all of the game’s factions can experience two brand new episodes, “Measure of Morality” Parts 1 and 2. A strange anomaly calls players to Excalbia where they are tasked with proving once and for all that good is better than evil. Players will team up with heroes like Seven of Nine (Star Trek: Picard) and Michael Burnham (Star Trek: Discovery) to navigate a series of trials that pit them against some of Star Trek’s most dangerous enemies.
  • New Task Force Operation: “To Hell With Honor” is a brand new 5-player space TFO that takes place on the surface of the moon, where J’Ula and her Klingon forces are building a new shipyard for her fleet. Players will need to work together to destroy this base before enemy forces take them down with Mycelial weaponry.
  • Anniversary Celebration – Over the next month, Star Trek Online players can earn credits toward the brand new cross-faction T6 Khitomer Alliance Battlecruiser by playing new episodes, TFOs and the Omega Anniversary Event. This special event is a STO favorite, which sends players on a mission to stabilize particles that Q has scattered across the galaxy.  
  • Mycelium Task Force Operation – The popular TFO introduced with Star Trek Online’s last update, Awakening, has been added to the game’s standard rotation of Task Force Operations. This special ground mission lets up to five players battle the Elachi, as they shut down probes that threaten to destroy the Mycelial Network.
