Star Trek Online: Awakening launches for PC

Star Trek Awakening

Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment have announced the PC launch of Star Trek Online: Awakening. Players of the space-themed MMO will be warping to the 25th century to partner with “a hologram of Lt. Commander Paul Stamets”. Fans of the long-running television series will recognize the talents of Anthony Rapp, the original actor who portrayed the character in Star Trek: Discovery.

This time, captains are hard at work trying to stop Klingon forces from destroying the Mycelial Network. Along the way, players will be introduced to patrols and a new Task Force Operation. In addition, players will be able to take part in the Mycelial Event to earn a T6 starship! Those who like premium ships will be able to buy a new Zen Store bundle in a few weeks that includes the USS Somerville. This ship is included in collaboration with IDW Publishing’s Star Trek Comics.

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.
