Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts is live.
The events of the Temporal Cold War were finally resolved with the release of Agents of Yesterday. That epic storyline took us on an adventure from the fall of 2015 through the late summer of 2016. It featured a full and complete story arc that brought the player from an amazingly realized The Original Series setting into alternate timelines and the far-flung future of the 31st century. With that storyline concluded, it’s time to begin anew.
With the release of Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts, Star Trek Online will begin a brand-new storyline featuring the episode “Echoes of Light.” Captains will once again meet up with the Lukari, and head off into a truly amazing adventure to introduce the formerly isolationist species to galactic exploration. You will find strange new worlds, interact with lifeforms both new and old, and make a discovery that will shape the direction of the Star Trek Online story through all of 2017 and beyond.
In addition to this amazing episode and the introduction of a brand-new story arc, we have two other exciting new features in Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts. First, Star Trek Online is proud to bring the amazing new graphical upgrades from our console release to the PC. All of the amazing new lighting technology that brought the console versions of Star Trek Online into the modern era of gaming will now bring a huge revamp to the PC version as well.
Next, we have a new fleet holding in our The Original Series-themed K-13 Starbase. Lost in the episode “Painful Omens” during Agents of Yesterday, it will be found by intrepid explorers in the distant frontier of the Alpha Quadrant. It’s up to your fleet to refurbish it to its original glory.
Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts begins a fresh adventure for the captains of Star Trek Online, and I personally can’t wait to see everyone in game.
