Star Trek Online, the online roleplaying game that continues the story of the Star Trek Universe, is proud to announce our fourth major expansion, Victory is Life. Paying homage to fan-favorite series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, this brand-new expansion will bring Captains to the Gamma Quadrant and beyond, in a new story kicked off by the invasion of the mysterious Hur’q. You’ll be able to play as a new faction, the Jem’Hadar; experience six new episodes in the Star Trek Online story; and interact with 10 of the original DS9 cast members. We’re so excited to announce four of those actors for you here today, with more coming in next few weeks.
At the end of the episode, “Scylla and Charybdis,” which first introduced players to the Hur’q threat, players were reunited with DS9 Chief of Security, Odo, played by René Auberjonois. René is the first DS9 actor who’ll be joining us for Victory is Life. When last we saw Odo, he’d returned to the Great Link, but the threat of the Hur’q brings him to our space. What is so dire that it could inspire his return? You’ll find out later this summer.
It wouldn’t be the same to have Odo without his greatest nemesis and foil, which is why it’s wonderful that Armin Shimerman is returning to the role of everyone’s favorite Ferengi bartender, Quark. Quark stayed on Deep Space Nine at the end of the show, but it’s been decades since then in the Star Trek Online timeline. We’ll find out just what fresh schemes he’s been up to, and how they might affect the galaxy.
After taking command of the station at the end of DS9, Commander Kira Nerys went on a spiritual journey that ended with her as the Kai of the Bajoran people. But with Odo returning to this quadrant, Nana Visitor will bring Kira to life once again, bringing one of Trek’s most-beloved characters to life in Star Trek Online.
And finally, the return of a familiar face. J.G. Hertzler has spent the last year guiding players in Star Trek Online as the long-thought-dead Klingon general, Martok. Now he’ll lead the forces of the combined Federation, Klingon and Romulan alliance into battle against the Klingons’ oldest and greatest enemy, the fearsome Hur’q. Adventure once again with the legendary Klingon general when Victory is Life releases in June 2018 on PC, and later this year on Xbox One and Playstation 4.
In addition to these new additions, Victory is Life will raise the Star Trek Online level cap to 65, introduce a new queue, new progression systems, and will add a Sector Battlezone, a new gameplay feature that takes players into a war between the stars to save the Gamma Quadrant. We’ll have more information on all these features soon, and we can’t wait for you to experience them.
Victory is Life.
