LeVar Burton is back as Capt. Geordi LaForge in Star Trek Online Season 14

Here is the launch trailer.

New episode: Melting Pot

Season 14 – Emergence opens with the new featured episode “Melting Pot,” continuing the story of the intensifying war with the Tzenkethi. Captains journey to the Dranuur Colony in the Alpha Quadrant. This brand-new colony world was established by the Kentari and Lukari, who recently joined forces to protect their ancient homeworld from the Tzenkethi. Lukari Captain Kuumaarke (voiced by Kipleigh Brown) and Captain Geordi La Forge (played by LeVar Burton) lead players on a mission to explore the new colony and see the newfound collaborative spirit between the Kentari and Lukari. While the tour and the colony look to be progressing well, the Tzenkethi may have other plans for this world!

New features

• New Fleet Holding – Players can now build a full-scale Fleet Holding on the joint colony that the Lukari and Kentari call home. This is the first Holding since Starbases to feature five full tiers of progression with rewards and the largest Fleet Holding location ever for players to explore.
• New Primary Specialization and Bridge Officer Class – Following in the footsteps of Geordi La Forge, the new Miracle Worker Primary Specialization allows captains to excel in engineering abilities, such as weapon enhancement and healing. They can also train their bridge officers to do the same.
• Colony Defense Event – Fleets can summon holographic foes as they train to defend their colony world and earn rewards for themselves and to progress their new Fleet Holding.
• Fleet Holding Defense Queues – The new colony world is home to two defense queues against Tzenkethi forces – one on ground and one in space.
• Tzenkethi Red Alert – Captains can team up to destroy the Tzenkethi in this space-based, 5-player queue held in the Alpha Quadrant.

Would love a Captain LaForge Series with the occasional Titan crossover.

What do you think of the idea for the next show, after Discovery: the post-Nemesis Titan show, or a show where we’ll finally see the Romulan War?

I’d prefer a post-Nemesis time frame myself. It frees you from all the baggage inherent with prequels, can break new ground, and leaves room for classic characters to return from time to time. But that’s my preference. It’d be nice to get away from war storylines and go back to exploring strange new worlds.

Yeah, that’s called Star Trek Online folks. All your post nemesis adventures and then some. Why worry about a new series in the future when there is an online game that has it already and making new episodes every 6 months with new world’s, new characters and new ships?

All I see is “emerging” is that Dolphinoceros behind LeVar.

Everyone is so obsessed with post-Nemesis. It’s boring. Life is perfect. Starfleet is the savior of all. Humans can do no wrong. The characters are all the same.
