Star Trek Online is wrapping up its Klingon Civil War arc with the launch of its latest update by bringing back some familiar voices.
Year of Klingon ends with “House United”
Today, Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios announced that Star Trek Online’s newest season, “House United,” is now available on PC. With this latest update, the free-to-play MMORPG ends their Year of Klingon, which started last summer with “House Divided,” and continued with last fall’s “House Shattered” and January’s “House Reborn.”
Over the last year, player Captains have seen the Klingon Empire torn apart. The new season introduces two featured episodes centered around Star Trek: Discovery’s L’Rell (voiced by Mary Chieffo), as well as Aakar (Robert O’Reilly from Star Trek: The Next Generation), General Martok (J.G Hertzler from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Adet’Pa (Rekha Sharma from Star Trek: Discovery). “House United” gives Captains the opportunity to earn exclusive rewards by completing tasks in a Special Event and participating in a brand-new Task Force Operation. Plus, anyone who logs into the game on PC today (May 25) will unlock a free Experimental Ship Upgrade. The new season will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on August 3.

After travelling to the sacred planet of Boreth and descending into the pits of Gre’thor, J’Ula, matriarch of House Mo’Kai, has resurrected the famed Klingon Warrior, L’Rell (voiced by Mary Chieffo, who originated the role on Star Trek: Discovery).
