Perfect World Entertainment Inc. and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online: Legacy is now live on PC and launches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 3rd. Next week, the free-to-play space MMORPG celebrates ten years of exploring and expanding the iconic Star Trek universe.
To celebrate this milestone, the development team at Cryptic Studios is releasing brand new content that pays homage to various Star Trek series spanning the franchise’s incredible 50+ year history.
This kicks off with two new featured episodes, starring Seven of Nine (voiced by Jeri Ryan) from the Star Trek: Voyager and brand new Star Trek: Picard series on CBS All Access, plus Starfleet’s very own Michael Burnham (voiced by Sonequa Martin-Green) from Star Trek: Discovery. Star Trek Online: Legacy also introduces a brand new space TFO and special anniversary events that allow players to earn the all-new Khitomer Alliance Battlecruiser.
“These last ten years have been an incredible journey for Star Trek Online,” said Andre Emerson, the game’s executive producer. “And it feels like we’re only getting started. Over the last decade, we’ve had the honor and privilege of exploring all of the different series that really defined the Star Trek franchise. Looking forward, we are excited about diving further into new shows like Picard and Discovery and want to thank our wonderful community of players for being the reason why opportunities like this even exist.”
“We could not be more proud of the team at Cryptic Studios for helping Star Trek Online become the game it is today,” said Yoon Im, CEO of Perfect World Entertainment. “Ten years in development is a major accomplishment. The game has remained a success during its tenure due to the support of our players and the dev team’s dedication to bringing the Star Trek universe to life.”
This is a pretty cool seeing two characters from the franchise getting to meet. I’ll be interested in learning how Seven of Nine and Burnham will meet as they are separated so far apart in both time and space. With so much Star Trek content available to enjoy this is a great time to be a Star Trek fan.
