Star Trek Online Launching ‘Age Of Discovery’ Tie-in To ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ This Fall

Today, Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online is launching a multi-part adventure tied to the CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery. Starting this fall the PC version of the free-to-play MMORPG based on the Star Trek universe will release the first installment of Age of Discovery.

Mary Wiseman lends her voice to Age of Discovery

For the first time Star Trek Online players will be able to create a Federation Captain from Star Trek: Discovery and join forces with Starfleet Academy Cadet Sylvia Tilly, voiced by Mary Wiseman. Age of Discovery’s first installment will also introduce a new Discovery era tutorial, two episodes, new Reputation Tiers, a new queue (now referred to as a Task Force Operation) and several other new gameplay features.

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.

The first installment from Age of Discovery will introduce a brand new starting experience allowing players to create a Federation character from the Discovery era. The update also includes two new Discovery episodes available to all characters, a new Task Force Operation to defend Starbase 1 and an expansion to the game’s Reputation System to Tier 6 that unlocks powerful new rewards. Additional details – including the release date for Age of Discovery’s first installment on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4 – will be announced later this year.

I wonder if this can run on my old windows pc collecting dust under my bed. I’ve been using chromebooks for a few years now.

So, this mostly takes place between the Battle of the Binary Stars and Burnham arriving on the Discovery. I wonder how they’ll bring the new character into the 25th century, then? At any rate, I welcome new content.

I’m wondering how they’re gonna reconcile the designs of the Disco-era Klingons vs everything else…

This totes ain’t gonna be a mess continuity-wise… Totes.

STO is a fun game. I think the character movements are a bit clunky & could be better, but the ship combat is fun as hell & the customization of all things are really good.

Just my two cents.
