Star Trek Online: Awakening Live On PC, Consoles Coming October 15

By Joseph Bradford on September 10, 2019 | News | 0

The latest adventure in the Star Trek Online universe has warped onto the PC. Star Trek Online: Awakening has hit PC today, though console fans will need to wait till October 15 to join the fun.

Starring Anthony Rapp from Star Trek: Discovery reprising his role as Lt Commander Paul Stamets, players in the free-to-play Star Trek game will join up to stop the Klingons from destroying the Mycelial Network. 

From the official press release:

In the newest update to the free-to-play Star Trek MMORPG, players will warp to the year 2410 and team up with a sentient hologram of Lt. Commander Paul Stamets (voiced by Anthony Rapp from Star Trek: Discovery) to stop the Klingons from destroying the Mycelial Network. Captains will also discover a new series of patrols to repair rifts in the fabric of space, a brand new Task Force Operation and Mycelial Event to earn a new T6 starship. Plus in the coming weeks, a new ship bundle will be released in the Zen Store, which includes the debut of the U.S.S. Somerville, a special collaboration with the Star Trek Comics by IDW Publishing.

Also from the press release:

These events all take place in a brand new featured episode and across five added patrols for Star Trek Online: Awakening. Today’s PC update also introduces an exciting new TFO, a limited-time Mycelial Event that allows players to earn the new T6 Elachi ship, and revamped UI/Systems updates. A full list of features now available with Awakening include:

  • Brand New Featured Episode -  Captains hailing from all of the game’s factions can participate in the new featured episode “Beneath the Skin.” Players will depend on a hologram of Commander Paul Stamets from the U.S.S Discovery to safely guide them through the Mycelial Network.
  • Five New Patrols – Players can embark on a mission with Stamets and Star Trek Online luminaries like Lukari Captain Kuumaarke to close the rifts caused by the Klingons.
  • New Task Force Operation – Up to five players can participate in this special ground TFO against the Elachi, which tasks them with shutting down probes that threaten to destroy the Mycelial Network.
  • Mycelial Event – Captains who participate in this special event can earn the new T6 Elachi ship by playing through the new featured episode, patrols and TFO throughout the next month.
  • New Event UI – The dev team has revamped the Event UI to make it easier for players to access new special events.
  • Patrol Systems – A new tab has been added to the PvE system, which allows captains to immediately enter selected patrols and gain bonus rewards.
  • New Starships – In just two weeks, players will be able to purchase the new Cross Faction Intel Science Bundle, which includes the Klingon Balth and the U.S.S. Somerville, a starship first introduced in the Star Trek Comics from IDW Publishing.

Captains can check out the announcement trailer below, and warp into action on PC today.
