Set course for the Delta Quadrant as "Delta Rising" is now available for the Star Trek Online video game.
The largest expansion for the Star Trek Online video game to date builds on the story of Star Trek: Voyager as players uncover a hand-crafted, expansive storyline and brand new gameplay mechanics all available for free.
Set 32 years after the events of Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek Online: Delta Rising brings players into the Delta Quadrant – a mysterious region of space recently made easily accessible through an ancient Iconian gateway. In keeping with Cryptic Studios’ efforts to capture the essence of the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek Online: Delta Rising reintroduces players to key members of the Voyager cast, including Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Robert Picardo (The Doctor), Garrett Wang (Harry Kim), Ethan Phillips (Neelix) and Tim Russ (Tuvok).
"With Star Trek Online: Delta Rising, our team continues to build on our vision of creating the most immersive experience for science-fiction fans," said Stephen D'Angelo, executive producer for Star Trek Online. "The franchise is acclaimed for creating strong storylines, and being able to dig deeper and further develop the Voyager narrative was an honor for a team full of Star Trek fans."
Star Trek Online: Delta Rising also increases the player level cap 60 – the first level cap increase in four years – allowing players to acquire a completely new tier of ships, gear and officers. The expansion also delves deeper into familiar species from the Star Trek franchise including the Talaxians, Ocampans, Kazon and the dangerous Vaadwaur.
Star Trek Online is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game where players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship or become a Klingon Warrior and champion the Empire through the far reaches of the galaxy. Its last expansion, Star Trek Online: Legacy of Romulus, added the option for players to rebuild the Romulan legacy as the commander of a Romulan Republic Warbird. In Star Trek Online players have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction, reach out to unexplored star systems and make contact with new alien species.
