Nicole de Boer Returning As Captain Ezri Dax For ‘Star Trek Online: Both Worlds’

Star Trek Online is now entering its 14th year and gearing up to launch its 31st season which will see the return of one of the stars of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Both Worlds arrives in 2 weeks

Today Gearbox Publishing and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online: Both Worlds, the 31st season of their long-running free-to-play Star Trek MMORPG. Both Worlds includes Captain Ezri Dax voiced by Nicole de Boer from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in her Star Trek Online debut. The new season also includes the return of Captain Harry Kim (voiced by Garret Wang from Star Trek: Voyager) and Admiral Kuumaarke (voiced by Kipleigh Brown from Star Trek: Enterprise). Both Worlds launches on January 23, 2024 for PC and will launch on PlayStation and Xbox consoles on March 12, 2024.

Here is the official synopsis for the story:

Star Trek Online: Both Worlds continues last season’s multiverse story following a misunderstanding with the Tholians and the tearing of the Reality Vortex. Serving as a launching pad for the Mirror Borg, it threatens the multiverse. In this new update, you’ll need to infiltrate the Mirror Borg Unicomplex, a technological labyrinth guarded by relentless Borg, to sever the vortex and save the multiverse. At the heart of this nightmare awaits the Borg King, the architect of this multiversal threat. Will you prevail against impossible odds and rewrite the fate of reality?

Both Worlds also includes the following new features…

New Episode – Scorpion’s Abyss
The Aetherians report a new Reality Vortex in Fluidic Space and ask for help to close it. There, you find Mirror Borg using the vortex as a beachhead for an assault on the multi-verse. A daring mission into a Mirror Borg Unicomplex puts you face to face with the Borg King.

New Task Force Operation – Battle of Wolf 359
This new 5-player space Task Force Operation will let you relive the greatest battle against the Borg at Wolf 359. Learn from the past to defend the present.

Season 31 Event – King and Collective
For this new event, players can play selected content to earn a new T6 ship.

Elite Random Task Force Operations Feature
This new quality-of-life improvement feature will give players the option to queue up for Random Elite TFOs to score extra rewards.

31st season? They’ve missed a trick not having Section 31 inspired episodes. With the multiverse angle, they could’ve brought back Sloan as a good guy and have Bashir the antagonist lol

True that!

Very interesting! What’s the best way to ingest this story (and the prior 30 seasons) without playing the game or reading a summary? I’d love to read novelizations of these one day.

There are some “official” stories set in the universe that are online. I think there’s also a book of fiction.

My God! We get to experience Wolf 359!

I’m wondering if the plan is to move the timeline into the Picard era at some point with all this multiverse hopping.

the game is set in 2409 and PIC is 2402 so it’s already in the PIC era lol it’s why they were able to fit in STO ships in Seasons 2 and 3

I apologize, not what I meant. What I meant was to enter the Picard canon instead of the game’s canon.

The Borg KING? (sigh)

it’s the Mirror Universe Borg and the game’s lore set up that they have a King years ago and this is them finally paying that off

The me from “years ago” stands by his nonverbal response to the notion of a Borg King…
