Star Trek Online captains looking for new adventures can now head into the game to check out the Age of Discovery, new content based on the CBS All Access series. Captains will adventure alongside Cadet Sylvia Tilly, voiced by series actress Mary Wiseman.
Other components of the update include:
- Playable Discovery Era Federation Faction – Players can create a brand new Discovery era Federation Captain with a new tutorial experience and explore Starfleet in the year 2256, just after the Battle at the Binary Stars.
