Star Trek Online has another update before the big “Victory is Life” expansion comes out in June. Today for PC players, the free-to-play Star Trek MMO added to the latest season (“Emergence”) with the roll out of the Season 14.5 update which introduces a brand new featured episode and secondary specialization. This mid-season update is an epilogue to the Tzenkethi War. Season 14.5 grants Captains access to “The Renegade’s Regret,” a new episode centered around Tzenkethi Captain Neth Parr, who recently sought political asylum on Deep Space Nine after betraying her kind to help the Alliance.
Season 14.5 also features an encounter with Captain Geordi La Forge (voiced by LeVar Burton) and introduces a new style of gameplay that allows Captains to play as Neth Parr and experience the brutal Tzenkethi Crusade from her perspective. Players will also discover the Constable Specialization, a new addition to the Captain Specialization System dedicated to the universe’s peacekeepers, like Odo from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

First Contact Day In STO
On April 5th Star Trek Online will celebrate First Contact Day, the day when Humans and Vulcans first met as seen in Star Trek: First Contact. In the game, the Zefram Cochrane Memorial and Historical Museum is holding a special re-enactment event from April 5th at 8am PT to April 12th at 10am PT.
Captains can scavenge the Bozeman, MT site for useful parts, just like Zephram Cochrane did for the Phoenix, constructing their own model of the Phoenix. Players can compete based on which model reaches the highest altitude, with prizes being awarded. More details on the official site.
