Star Trek Online goes to the Gamma Quadrant in its new expansion


Wormhole up at the bar!

I can't believe it's been nearly twenty-five years since Star Trek: Deep Space Nine first aired. I didn't watch it when it was new (I was a Voyager kid myself), but despite having joined the party on the Promenade late, I can subscribe to the notion that it's arguably the best Trek series of them all. 

Now Star Trek Online is getting ready to explore its last undiscovered country, in the game's next free content expansion, Victory Is Life. Set to launch on PC in June (with consoles to follow later), the expansion will send players to the Gamma Quadrant itself, which is pretty much the last place in the Trek galaxy that doesn't have all that much content set within it. Sure, it's the home of the Dominion and of the game's current major threat, the Hur'q, but beyond those factoids, little concrete information has been shown in the canonical content. 

Ten Deep Space Nine alumni, including Rene Auberjonois (Constable Odo), Alexander Siddig (Dr. Bashir), Nana Visitor (Major Kira), and Armin Shimmerman (Quark), will return to reprise their roles. The expansion will also debut a playable Jem'hadar subfaction that will start new characters at level 60, kind of like the Hero Classes in World of Warcraft. For everyone, the in-game level cap will be raised from 60 to 65, and all will also be able to partake of new narrative content, progression systems, public events, and playable ships. Check out a trailer for the expansion below.
