Couldn’t get enough of Jason Isaacs and Rekha Sharma on Star Trek: Discovery? Well, they’re back in character as the voices of Captain Gabriel Lorca and Commander Ellen Landry for Star Trek Online’s next major update, Rise of Discovery. Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios will launch Rise of Discovery on PC on May 14 and later on consoles.
In the game’s two new episodes, Star Trek Online players will embark on new missions featuring Captain Lorca and Commander Landry, battle alongside the U.S.S. Buran, and learn what happened to Lorca and Landry in advance of their assignments to the U.S.S. Discovery crew. More specifically, players answer a distress call from the Federation starship after it sustains heavy damage from Klingon forces, led by J’Ula, matriarch of House Mo’Kai. The attack leaves its sole survivor, Lorca, stranded on a desolate ice moon littered with Klingon search parties. His fate now lies in the hands of Star Trek Online players, who must team up with Landry to secure his survival.
Rise of Discovery also delivers a fresh Tier 6 reputation entitled Discovery Legends, which allows players to earn Discovery-themed rewards by completing Task Force Operations. Starting May 14, all of Star Trek Online’s Tier 6 starships will be converted to player level-less scaling, giving all captains – regardless of experience – access to these powerful vessels at any time. Further game feature details will be revealed upon launch.
