Star Trek Online, the free-to-play massively multiplayer online game, will explore the final frontier of Star Trek: Discovery, the most recent iteration of Gene Roddenberry’s venerable sci-fi franchise, this fall.
The MMO will explore a new Star Trek era in a multi-part adventure called Age of Discovery. Players will be able to create a new captain set in the time period of Star Trek: Discovery and join forces with Starfleet Academy cadet Sylvia Tilly from the television show. She’ll be voiced by actor Mary Wiseman in Star Trek Online.
Here’s the official story set up for Star Trek Online’s Age of Discovery content:
Age of Discovery opens in the year 2256, just after the Battle at the Binary Stars. In the wake of a brutal war against the Klingons, Starfleet Captains now face J’Ula, matriarch of the House of Mo’Kai and sister of T’Kuvma, who seeks to alter the destiny of the Alpha Quadrant. Players must rely on the help of fellow Starfleet Academy Cadet Sylvia Tilly (voiced by Mary Wiseman), who has come home to assist with training and see them off on their first assignment. From there, they will journey to iconic locations from Star Trek: Discovery, like the Dilithium Mines of Corvan II, explore the new experimental Crossfield class Starship, the U.S.S. Glenn, and defend Starbase 1 from a fearsome attack by the Klingon House of D’Ghor.
Age of Discovery will include a new starting experience for players, a new Task Force operation and an expansion to Star Trek Online’s reputation system. Age of Discovery will be released first for the PC versions of the game and come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
Star Trek: Discovery is available to watch as part of CBS All Access, the network’s digital streaming service. CBS gave fans their first look at Discovery’s second season at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month.
