Star Trek Online: Rise of Discovery Coming in May for PC

Perfect World Entertainment announced that the next major update for Star Trek Online is coming on May 14th, 2019 to PC: Rise of Discovery. This will continue the Star Trek Discovery-based content, continuing with new missions featuring Captain Gabriel Lorca (voiced by Jason Isaacs) and Commander Ellen Landry (voiced by Rekha Sharma). Star Trek Online players will fight alongside the U.S.S. Buran and learn what happened to both Lorca and Landry before they joined the crew of the U.S.S Discovery. Rise of Discovery also introduces a brand new reputation 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.

Rise of Discovery will feature two new episodes and adds a Tier 6 reputation – Discovery Legends. This will let players earn Discovery-themed rewards by completing Task Force Operations. In addition, with this update, all Tier 6 starships will be converted to player level-less scaling so that all Captains can play Tier 6 ships no matter what level they are. These ships will grow with the player, and more details will be revealed at launch.

After the first season of Star Trek: Discovery drew to an exciting close, many fans were left with unanswered questions about Gabriel Lorca. Star Trek Online players can now uncover the truth behind the Federation captain’s past through the eyes of his trusted commanding officer, Ellen Landry. Rise of Discovery takes place when both Lorca and Landry were assigned to the U.S.S. Buran before they beamed aboard the U.S.S. Discovery. Players answer a distress call from the Federation starship after it sustains heavy damage from Klingon forces, led by J’Ula, the matriarch of House Mo’Kai. The attack leaves its sole survivor, Captain Lorca, stranded on a desolate ice moon littered with Klingon search parties. His fate now lies in the hand of Star Trek Online players, who must team up with Commander Landry to ensure his survival.
