And 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?

Gawd, I hate multiverses.

100%. 1. It’s degenerated into a plot device for lazy writers. 2. With some rare exceptions, it typically takes away accountability for the characters.

But JJ verse is part of the multi….

Yeah I see your point. 😉🙄

I don’t mind them too much but Marvel has made me sick to death of them as well


Just to add: the reason I hate them is because if anything is possible — literally the baseline assumption of the multiverse — then nothing matters.

(Plus, at this point it’s been done to death.)


Nothing personal, but I love multiverses. My #1: Power Rangers. Star Trek is among my honorable mentions.

Somewhere in the multiverse, you hate them and I love them.😝

Lol, awesome!

If you tallied everything about Star Trek fans have said they’re sick of an eliminated it, there would be no more Star Trek left.

So sick of the multiverse thing….

We Trekkies kind of started it. Isn’t Star Trek online essentially a big “What If” already?

As someone else said, Marvel (and now DC too) have really overdone it.

I mean “Mirror, Mirror” was a multiverse story, so Star Trek has done it from the very beginning.

“Yesterday’s Enterprise” is another great multiverse story.

Sorry to read of his passing. We didn’t much see eye-to-eye politically, but he was good on “Enterprise,” really good on “Alien Nation,” and his body of work will live on.

Really really good on ALIEN NATION and solid in one of the very first episodes of MOONLIGHTING, I think it was called GUNFIGHT AT THE SO-SO CORAL.

I think his portrayal of a Vulcan was up there with Mark Lenard’s.

Oh lawd I’d rather play Elite Force!
