“Stormfall” Launch Trailer
Here is the story for “Stormfall”:
In Star Trek Online’s last update, “Shadow’s Advance,” players discovered they were on a mission to retrieve the one and only Ilia Decker from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. “Stormfall” begins as Captains arrive at a secured facility to rescue Ilia and she warns them that the Terran Empire is on the verge of summoning a powerful nemesis from their collective past. To secure her freedom and stop Terran forces led by Captain Killy (voiced by Mary Wiseman from Star Trek: Discovery), Captains must team up with two of their former adversaries, Marshal Painway Janeway (voiced by Kate Mulgrew from Star Trek: Voyager) and Admiral Leeta, (voiced by Chase Masterson from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine). On their journey, they will also enlist the help of an Andorian rebel named “Rae-Yeet,” who is voiced by Noah Averbach-Katz (“Ryn” from the third season of Discovery).
A full list of content available with Stormfall includes:
- Two Featured Episodes – Captains hailing from all of the game’s various factions can explore two brand new episodes:
- “Blueshift” – After formulating a rescue plan, Admiral Janeway calls on Captains to team up with former Terran Admiral Leeta and Terran Marshal Janeway to execute a daring rescue of Ilia from the Terran ESD.
- “The Calling” – With the information gained from Ilia, the Terrans are ready to contact a powerful new nemesis using the biggest galactic antenna they know of – the peaceful planet of Pahvo. The Coalition is attempting to stop them but will need help from Starfleet to take down the Terran Empire.
- Remastered Starfleet Tutorial – The tutorial for the main Starfleet faction has gotten a major upgrade! This new introduction will not only provide aspiring Captains with a smoother starting experience, but has also been updated with incredible new environments and added interaction with the Borg and Admiral Janeway.
- TFO Rebuild – “Forged in Fire” is a complete rebuild of a fan favorite, “The Assault on Terok Nor.” In this five-player ground Task Force Operation, players will assemble an assault team to stop Admiral Leeta, who now has the power of the Pah-wraith, non-corporeal beings once native to the Bajoran wormhole.
- “Heart of the Storm” Special Event – Captains who play through numerous episodes and TFOs associated with Mirror Universe can unlock an exciting new reward, the Kuumarke Visionary Ground Set.

I want that case!
I tried to play this game, but the outdated graphics turned me off. It’s a shame because the storylines sound great. If the developers would invest in updating to Destiny-level graphics they would have a smash hit on their hands.
