The free-to-play MMORPG Star Trek Online continues to explore the world of the CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery with their latest update, which features Jason Isaacs and Rekha Sharma.
Isaacs and Sharma return for Rise of Discovery
Today, Perfect World and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online’s next major update, Rise of Discovery, will launch on PC May 14 and later on consoles. The update includes new missions featuring Captain Gabriel Lorca (voiced by Jason Isaacs) and Commander Ellen Landry (Rekha Sharma). Star Trek Online players will fight alongside the U.S.S. Buran and learn what happened to both Lorca and Landry before they joined the crew of the U.S.S Discovery. Rise of Discovery also introduces a brand new reputation and a ship system update that scales all Tier 6 starships to individual player levels, granting all captains access to the game’s finest vessels.

Lorca and Landry on the USS Buran
After the first season of Star Trek: Discovery drew to an exciting close, many fans were left with unanswered questions about Gabriel Lorca. Star Trek Online players can now uncover the truth behind the Federation captain’s past through the eyes of his trusted commanding officer, Ellen Landry. Rise of Discovery takes place when both Lorca and Landry were assigned to the U.S.S. Buran, before they beamed aboard the U.S.S. Discovery. Players answer a distress call from the Federation starship after it sustains heavy damage from Klingon forces led by J’Ula, the matriarch of House Mo’Kai. The attack leaves its sole survivor, Captain Lorca, stranded on a desolate ice moon littered with Klingon search parties. His fate now lies in the hand of Star Trek Online players, who must team up with Commander Landry to ensure his survival.
Rise of Discovery features two new episodes, voiced by Star Trek: Discovery’s very own Jason Isaacs and Rekha Sharma. The update also introduces a new Tier 6 reputation—Discovery Legends—which allows players to earn Discovery-themed rewards by completing Task Force Operations. Starting May 14, all of Star Trek Online’s Tier 6 starships will be converted to player level-less scaling, allowing Captains with varying experience to command these powerful vessels at any time.
