As Star Trek Timelines continues to evolve in the months and years ahead, social gameplay will become an increasingly critical part of the game. Players will be able to collaborate and compete against each other, and in doing so will be able to leave their mark on the galaxy. Recently, the game developers unveiled a new social aspect of the game: Squadrons.

As part of a larger fleet of up to 50 players, Squadrons are a nimble group of up to five players who work together to overcome challenges in events. As a huge bonus, squadron leaders are able to share one in-game character with their squadmates for the duration of an event. In addition, top-ranking squads have a major impact on the future direction of Star Trek Timelines by earning the ability to vote on story resolutions and applying small-group strategies to overcome major problems in the galaxy.

As the game continues to grow, fleets and Squadrons will become ever more critical in steering large story arcs. To find a fleet, tap the menu button in the upper right corner of the main screen, select “Fleets and Squadrons” and you’re on your way to an even bigger galaxy.

Available now on the App Store and Google Play, Star Trek Timelines merges the characters, stories and settings from Star Trek: The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise. Gather your favorite heroes -- or villains -- to build your dream crew, explore the galaxy and lead Starfleet through a crisis threatening the very fabric of time and space.
