Hey, Star Trek Online’s a year old now

Hey there! Do you play Star Trek Online? I do, because that’s my guy up there in the header. He’s a Borg named One of Eleventy, and is captain of the the majestic vessel U.S.S. Weekly. He’s standing in front of a big ol’ holo-banner celebrating – you guessed it – Star Trek Online‘s first birthday.

With that birthday comes the obligatory birthday patch! Thankfully, it does more than resolve bugs, throwing in major visual overhauls of the game’s hub areas as well as a few (welcome) interface updates. Also available are some anniversary quests, featuring – among other things – a trivia contest with everyone’s favorite omnipotent being, Q, and some party favors you can use to annoy other people at the auction house.

So yes, if you haven’t logged in in a while, try visiting back and see what the fuss is about. You might even snag an opportunity to gaze at the majesty of the U.S.S. Weekly‘s purple-and-green color scheme as it cruises through space, the final frontier, in search of new life, new civilizations, and HOT CELEBRITY NEWS.
