Star Trek Online is celebrating two iconic moments in Star Trek history with server-wide giveaways for all captains! To commemorate the release of CBS’ brand-new Star Trek series, players can log into the free-to-play MMORPG to claim a free uniform from Star Trek: Discovery. In addition, Star Trek Online is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation by offering captains a free Type 7 Shuttle and releasing a new TNG-themed episode on consoles featuring LeVar Burton. From now through October 31 at 10:00 am PDT, console captains will be able to claim these items from the Promotions tab of the C-Store on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. PC players also have a second chance to pick up the Discovery Uniform and Type 7 Shuttle during this time period.
Millions tuned in when Star Trek: Discovery hit the airwaves for the very first time last month and continued its maiden journey on CBS All Access. Captains can celebrate the debut of this new Star Trek series by dressing their captains in the Federation uniform from the show, as worn by the crew of the U.S.S. Shenzhou (NCC-1227).
The Type 7 Shuttle played a pivotal role in Star Trek: The Next Generation. The crew of the U.S.S Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) often utilized the shuttlecraft for important short-range missions, in place of transporters. Captains can now claim this elite upgraded shuttle in Star Trek Online. Each Type 7 Shuttle is equipped with an Ensign Engineering Bridge Officer station and Ensign Universal Bridge Officer station.
Starting now, captains can log into Star Trek Online on Xbox One and PlayStation®4 to check out the new Star Trek: The Next Generation-themed featured episode, “Beyond the Nexus.” In this episode, players will team up with Starfleet Captain Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) to aid in rescuing the crew of a Galaxy-class ship under attack. Captains will also be able to purchase a new Galaxy-class interior, which served as home to Captain Picard and his crew during Star Trek: The Next Generation.
From now through November 9 at 10:00 am PDT, console captains between levels 50-60 can team up for the 5-player “Arena of Sompek” event. Rewards for participation include dilithium, marks, crafting material or the new ground weapon, the Sompek Pulsewave. In addition, Star Trek Online is holding a Champions of Sompek Contest which will grant powerful starships and rewards to the top three competing teams.
