Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment have taken the wraps off the third expansion to Star Trek Online. Called 'Agents of Yesterday', the expansion celebrates the original television series' fiftieth anniversary and allows players to create a brand new captain from the timeline of Star Trek: The Original Series and command a ship also appropriate to the era.
Original Series captains will be traveling to iconic locations including Taurus VII, Edren and will be able to take command of starships joining the classic Enterprise as well as the Daedalus class Science Vessel. Chris Doohan, son of James "Scotty" Doohan, will be adding a nostalgic touch to the expansion by providing voice acting for both Chekov and Scotty.
“Star Trek Online has been able to explore other eras in the franchise fromStar Trek: Enterprise to Star Trek: Voyager, while continuing to add to the core Star Trek narrative,” said Steve Ricossa, executive producer of Star Trek Online. “The 50th Anniversary of Star Trek presents a unique opportunity and challenge for our team, to faithfully venture back in time to one of the most iconic science-fiction settings and eras in television history. Combining Star Trek: The Original Series with Star Trek Online allows us to take players on some new and unique adventures in a time period that is beloved by fans.”
Star Trek Online: Agents of Yesterday is expected to launch in Summer 2016.
