Star Trek Online: Awakening update

Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have just released the Star Trek Online: Awakening on console, enabling Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players to warp to the 25th Century for a team-up opportunity with Lt. Commander Paul Stamets from Star Trek: Discovery. Are you ready to embark upon a critical mission to save the Mycelial Network?

This latest Awakening update – following Rise of Discovery – to the free-to-play Star Trek Online game challenges you to recover Mycelial spore technology stolen by J’Ula, the sister of T’Kuvma and matriarch of the Klingon House of Mo’Kai. In order to stop the Klingons from causing permanent damage to the Mycelial Network, captains will need to acquire the help of an astromycology expert. As a result, you’ll create a sentient hologram of Commander Paul Stamets (voiced by Anthony Rapp) from the U.S.S. Discovery and have the ability to repair rifts in the fabric of space.

Awakening also features exciting new gameplay content for players to discover, including:

  • 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 Discoveryto 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 Crisis Event – Captains who participate in this special event can earn the new T6 Elachi ship by playing through the new featured episode, patrols and TFOthroughout the next month.
  • New Event UI – The Event UI has been revamped 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 – On 21st November, players will be able to purchase the new Intel Science Bundle, which includes the Klingon Balthand the U.S.S. Somerville – a starship first introduced in the Star Trek Comics from IDW Publishing.

Furthermore, celebrate the launch of bothAwakening on consoles and the fact that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Star Trek Online has also teamed up with Groupees.com to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Captains on PC can purchase a bundle featuring in-game items such as pink Tribbles and T6 starships for STO – 85% of the gross sales (up to a maximum total donation of $75,000) will go to the foundation to help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer.

Been gaming casually since the SNES as a youngster but found my true passion for games on the Playstation 1 (the forbidden word ooo). My addiction grew to its pinnacle with the purchase of an Xbox 360 & Xbox Live Service. A recovering GS hunter that will still play literally any game.
