Star Trek Online: Delta Rising is coming soon!

STO_DR_00Star Trek Online (STO) has been running for several years now. As with any MMORPG, it had its ups and downs, but in the growing expanse of gaming options for those who love MMORPGs (like myself), Star Trek Online ranks as one of my favorites! Ever since the release of STO’s first expansion, Legacy of Romulus, the expansion which brought the Romulan faction into the fold, many players like myself have returned to this game and found it to be much different to the version which was released. I’m not saying this is a paradigm-shift like what happened for Final Fantasy XIV which became Final Fantasy XIV: Reborn, but there were many additions and changes that made the experience more engaging than before.

STO_DR_01Season Nine of STO saw the return of Tim Russ, returning to his role as Tuvok, a role he has not played since Star Trek: Voyager. Advancing the game’s timeline to 2410, this season marks the precursor for the upcoming expansion Delta Rising. The story brings factions to the expansive realm of the Delta Quadrant through a mysterious Iconian Gateway. You are not alone! With the help of the crew of U.S.S. Voyager, your journey through the Delta Rising expansion is one of danger and discovery. Alongside Tuvok, we will see the return of Harry Kim (Garrett Wang), Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), Neelix (Ethan Phillips), and the EMH Doctor (Robert Picardo), altogether a working ensemble not seen since the Voyager-series itself. I’m not sure if there are other Voyager Alumni returning, but this is the official list so far.

STO_DR_02This expansion expands into the Delta Quadrant, bringing many of the races previously seen in the aforementioned Star Trek series, the Talaxians, Ocampa, Kazon, etc. Additionally, the level cap is raised to level 60, a new Tier 6 class of ships for all factions, and new storylines that cannot easily be burned through.
