Star Trek Online: Awakening Hits PC Today, Consoles in October

Star Trek Online‘s latest update, Star Trek Online: Awakening hits PCs today, and will arrive on console in October. Players will warp to the year 2410 and team up with a Lt. Commander Paul Stamets (voiced by Anthony Rapp from Star Trek: Discovery) to stop the Klingons from destroying the Mycelial Network.

A new series of patrols will await, where players repair rifts in the fabric of space. A new Task Force Operation and Mycelial Event also await to earn a new T6 starship. A new ship bundle also drops in the Zen Store in the next few weeks, which will include the debut of U.S.S. Somerville, a special collaboration with the Star Trek Comics by IDW Publishing. A full list of features in this update can be found below.

Star Trek Online: Awakening Features:
