When Star Trek Online: Rise of Discovery launches later this year, it will feature both Captain Gabriel Lorca and Commander Ellen Landry, voiced by Jason Isaacs and Rekha Sharma. As players work through Rise of Discovery, they will fight beside the USS Buran and learn the history of each in their time before joining the crew of the Discovery. Rise of Discovery will launch on May 14th.
Rise of Discovery will also feature a new reputation to chase and "a ship system update that scales all Tier 6 starships to individual player levels, granting all Captains access to the game's finest vessels".
During the events of the main storyline, players will learn the history of Captain Lorca "through the eyes of his trusted commanding officer, Ellen Landry" while they were aboard the USS Buran. Players will take part in a mission to rescue Lorca under Landry's command.
Rise of Discovery features two new episodes, voiced by Star Trek: Discovery’s very own Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter films) and Rekha Sharma (Battlestar Galactica, Alien vs Predators: Requiem). The update also introduces a new Tier 6 reputation, - 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, allowing Captains with varying experience to command these powerful vessels at any time. Additional details on these game features will be revealed at launch.
