Star Trek Online

Star Trek Online is a premier free-to-play MMORPG from Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment set in the famous Star Trek universe. Don the official uniforms of the United Federation of Planets or the Klingon Empire, choose the path of Tactical, Science, or Engineering specialties, command Away Teams, captain your very own starship, avoid Borg assimilation, even breed (!) Tribbles, all in Gene Roddenberry’s larger-than-life space epic, and all for free.


STO brings the Final Frontier right to your computer screen, with a stardate sometime in 2049, and in the same timeline set forth in the TV shows. Players quickly become captain of a starship, and are given a trial by fire as their first mission, setting the basis for the game’s story. From there, players are free to explore strange new worlds, new life, new civilizations, to boldly go anywhere in game they wish to. STO has many of the locations made known from the TV series, and is constantly expanding the known universe with many more. Characters, bridge officers, and starships are all highly customizable, and may easily be made to stay true to Star Trek canon.


STO is powered by the Cryptic Engine, allowing for very good space and ground visuals, and focusing on engaging combat tactics, such as the ability to flank enemies on the ground for extra damage, and position starships to make proper use of shields and weapons. Furthermore, the STO Foundry gives players the tools to create missions, and make them available for play by other players. The bottom line is, if you’re looking to get into a solid Star Trek game, Star Trek Online is it.
