Star Trek Online: Awakening Announces PC Release Date
Star Trek Online‘s next update, Awakening will take captains back to the 25th century in September 2019. September 10th is the release date for PC, with a console release to be announced at a later date. Following the conclusion of Age of Discovery, captains will return to the 25th century and their original timeline. We head to the year 2410, where a mission begins to recover stolen Mycelial technology from J’Ula and the Klingons. But captains won’t be alone, as Lt. Commander Paul Stamets (voiced by Anthony Rapp from Star Trek: Discovery) in holographic form. Captains can also access Awakening to participate in a series of patrols to repair time rifts, as well as a brand new Task Force Operation and a special Mycelial Event. This event will give players a new T6 Elachi ship for completing missions.
“Last fall marked a historical moment for Star Trek Online, as we explored the vast universe of Star Trek: Discovery and developed content in conjunction with a live Star Trek series for the very first time,” says the game’s Executive Producer Andre Emerson. “The show’s cadence also allowed us to build an expansion over time, yielding exciting new missions, dozens of unexplored starships and countless hours of story content starring original Discovery cast members. The time has now come for captains to return home to the 25th century and we cannot wait for them to experience the next chapter.”
During Age of Discovery, players witnessed J’Ula and her Klingon forces stealing Mycelial technology, which pulled them forward to the year 2410. Captains must now follow this ruthless Klingon matriarch back to the 25th century to ensure she doesn’t corrupt the entire Mycelial Network in pursuit of her own dangerous agenda. Unfortunately, the insurmountable threat J’Ula poses to the universe also draws out the Elachi, who fear her actions will lead to the destruction of their home planet – and they will stop at nothing to protect it. In order to complete their mission, Captains must rely on the help of an astromycologist expert, a sentient hologram of the legendary Lieutenant Commander Paul Stamets from the U.S.S. Discovery (voiced by Anthony Rapp), to help them track down J’Ula and repair the tears she’s caused in the fabric of space.
