Star Trek Online will follow Star Trek: Discovery into the binary star system this fall with the multi-part adventure, Age of Discovery, it’s been announced by Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios. The PC version of the Star Trek-based free-to-play MMORPG’s first Discovery installment will allow Star Trek Online players to create a Federation Captain from Star Trek: Discovery and join forces with Starfleet Academy Cadet Sylvia Tilly, voiced by Mary Wiseman.
Further, Age of Discovery’s first installment will introduce a new Discovery-era tutorial, two episodes, new Reputation Tiers, an added Task Force Operation and several other new gameplay features.
Age of Discovery opens in the year 2256, just after the Battle at the Binary Stars. In the wake of a brutal war against the Klingons, Starfleet Captains now face J’Ula, matriarch of the House of Mo’Kai and sister of T’Kuvma, who seeks to alter the destiny of the Alpha Quadrant. Players must rely on the help of fellow Starfleet Academy Cadet Sylvia Tilly (voiced by Mary Wiseman), who has come home to assist with training and see them off on their first assignment. From there, they will journey to iconic locations from Star Trek: Discovery, like the Dilithium Mines of Corvan II, explore the new experimental Crossfield class Starship, the U.S.S. Glenn, and defend Starbase 1 from a fearsome attack by the Klingon House of D’Ghor.
Additional details – including the release date for Age of Discovery’s first installment on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation4 – will be announced later this year.
