The Foundry System in Star Trek Online and Neverwinter was a way for players to create and share adventures with their fellow community members since both games debuted. However, as of today, The Foundry has gone dark in both games. Cryptic Studios posted a brief notice and farewell on the STO Facebook page.
A new blog post has arrived on the Star Trek Online site to give players a heads up about some big changes coming to character creation. UI Designer Jo Gianulis writes that, at the start, STO character creation was simple and worked well but that, over time, it became "bloated and overwhelming" due to the addition of new species and factions. The process began to "clean up the UI and cut down on the visual clutter".
Starting today, PlayStation 4 and XBox One captains will be able to pilot their ships into the Mirror of Discovery to "uncover the fate of the Terran Empire's Captain Killy". Killy is voiced by Mary Wiseman, the actor behind the CBS series, Star Trek: Discovery.
Sad news for content creators, Cryptic Studios has announced that it is retiring the Foundry system for both Neverwinter and Star Trek Online. The announced closure of the Foundries will occur on April 11, 2019. "This decision was not made lightly; the Foundry was a passion project for many of us." the blog reads. The cited reason for the closure is that "the legacy knowledge required to maintain the Foundry at our quality standards is no longer available".

The Star Trek Online team has shared a post from an individual named Nick Gasper who wrote about his father's and his love of the Star Trek franchise. The "rant" (according to the writer) begins with how much his dad loved Star Trek and raised his son to believe the same. "Sit down, this is important," Nick's dad would say. By sharing those moments through the years of their lives together, they created a bond that has lasted even after the passing of Nick's dad several years ago.
The Star Trek Online site has been updated with a new developer diary that lays out the details about the game's upcoming ninth anniversary. The event kicks off on January 23rd and will run through February 11th. During the anniversary celebration, a number of activities will be available for party hearty captains.
Star Trek Online will be getting the next chapter in the ongoing Age of Discovery story arc. On January 23rd, the Mirror of Discovery will send players to a confrontation with Captain Killy, "the ruthless leader of ther Terran Empire's ISS Discovery", the mirror version of Cadet Sylvia Tilly from the "normal" timeline. Also included in the update are two Discovery episodes, anniversary challenges and an updated Endeavors System.
The Star Trek Online team has laid out the brand new details about the new Personal Endeavors system, essentially an account-wide progression system for captains of level 60+. Each day, captains will be given a trio of "Personal Endeavors" (easy, medium, hard) "that are shared account-wide and unique to every account" and are an addition to the "Universal Endeavors" (formerly server endeavors). These endeavors will "unlock account-wide stat increases".
When you think of Star Trek you think of a few things, like humans flying around the universe in powerful ships, exotic alien worlds, and races, and the omnipotent beings like Q. The stories that have been told around this universe have had ups and downs but I think that it has been mostly good. One of the best things Star Trek Online has done is the inclusion of events, such as Q’s Winter Wonderland and The Tzenkethi Go to War events. Let’s dig a little deeper into these events.
From today through December 31st, Star Trek Online captains can face off against the Tzenkethi during a special Red Alert event. During the Tzenkethi Red Alert, teams of five are tasked with stopping the "genocidal Tzenkethi" from unleashing a super weapon at unprepared planets.
