After concluding the Mirror Universe arc earlier this year, Star Trek Online is set to begin a new multiverse story arc.
Gearbox Publishing and Cryptic Studios just announced Star Trek Online: Unraveled, the latest season of the long-running MMO launching May 9, 2023 for PC.
Here is a quick summary of the new story:
Following events from the conclusion of the Mirror Universe story arc, “Terran Gambit”, your Captain will embark on a humanitarian scientific mission with Captain Kuumaarke (voiced by Kipleigh Brown) to stabilize the Na’kuhl sun. However, this mission is interrupted by a discovery; a transdimentional Reality Vortex is disrupting space-time throughout the Multiverse. A conflict ensues with the Tholians, who reveal that constant use of time and dimensional travel has caused these vortices – and your Captain is partly to blame.
They also released a new announcement trailer prominently featuring the USS Enterprise-F. The ship recently seen in season 3 of Star Trek: Picard was based on a design from Star Trek Online.
UPDATE about the Enterprise F trailer. Gearbox has sent us the following note:
Correction: We wanted to feature the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-F) as a celebration of the ship that was introduced in Star Trek Online, and also announce Star Trek Online’s new season, Unraveled. The ship is currently in the game, however, players can look forward to an updated model of the ship next month. More details will be revealed soon! We apologize for any confusion.
Star Trek Online Unraveled includes the following content:
- New Episode – Wish Upon a Star: While on a scientific humanitarian mission with Captain Kuumaarke, your Captain will discover a group of Tholians interacting with a Reality Vortex. Their intentions and goals are unknown.
- New Task Force Operation – Leviathan: A five-player space Task Force Operation simulating a Trench Run exercise across “The Other” in a “What if?” scenario if the “Terran Gambit” arc had ended differently.
- Two new Patrols: Jupiter Gauntlet and Bringers of War, based off of the “Terran Gambit” story arc. New Hard Mode is included as well for an extra challenge.
- Lockbox and Lobi Store Items: Strange New World items and the T6 Gorn Hunter Pilot Raider have been added to the Infinity Lockbox. Starfleet and Majalan items from Season 1 of Strange New World have been added to the Lobi Crystal Consortium.
