I'm still kind of amazed that Star Trek Online is doing so well and adding massive updates four years on. As previously revealed this month at the big Star Trek Con in Las Vegas, Star Trek Online is heading back to the Delta Quadrant in the newest content pack, Delta Rising. Naturally this update focuses on the USS Voyager, with Tuvok apparently hauling the ship out of mothballs and heading back to the Borg-saturated area of space.
I'm interested to see what they do with some of the ideas from Voyager. While I liked many of the characters and ideas from that show, I consider Voyager the weakest Trek series as you could tell the writers were getting really, really tired after 14 combined seasons of Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. It was a show that never hit its potential but in Star Trek Online, they might give aliens like the Kazon their due and make the Borg scary again. Look for Delta Rising this fall.
A new conflict has emerged in the Delta Quadrant, calling for the intervention of the united factions in Star Trek Online. The announcement trailer for Star Trek Online: Delta Rising reveals the first glimpse of the trials and tribulations that lay ahead of them. Can they rise together to save the Delta Quadrant?
Set 32 years after the events of Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek Online: Delta Rising will bring players into the Delta Quadrant – a mysterious region of space recently made easily accessible through an ancient Iconian gateway. As players explore uncharted worlds and interact with alien species, they will partner with well-known crew members of U.S.S. Voyager to investigate an unknown enemy presence.
Star Trek Online is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game where players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship, or become a Klingon Warrior and champion the Empire to the far reaches of the galaxy. In Star Trek Online, players have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction, reach out to unexplored star systems and make contact with new alien species. Its last expansion, Star Trek Online: Legacy of Romulus, added the option for players to rebuild the Romulan legacy as a member of a Romulan Republic Warbird.
