April 16, 2015 — Star Trek Online welcomes Robert McNeill reprising his role as Tom Paris from Star Trek: Voyager continuing the trend of key cast members from the television series joining the online gaming world. McNeill will be introduced in Season 10 of Star Trek Online – titled The Iconian War – when it launches for free on Tuesday, April 21.
Season 10 of Star Trek Online begins the conclusion of a conflict that has been brewing in Star Trek Online for more than five years. The newest season reintroduces the Iconians – an ancient race that has remained dormant for years waiting for their time to strike. As the war approaches, new captains will emerge from Delta Recruitment to bolster forces in defense of the galaxy. It is up to Star Trek Online players to push back the forces of the Iconians. If they don’t succeed, there might be no galaxy to fight for.
In addition to the new Star Trek lore available in Season 10, Star Trek Online will also receive additional in-game updates including a re-vamp of sector space that allows players to navigate the Alpha, Beta and Delta Quadrants uninhibited. Players will also be able to participate in additional queues and develop their pilot specialization further as it moves from a secondary to primary specialization.
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, become a Klingon Warrior and champion the Empire through the far reaches of the galaxy, or rebuild the Romulan legacy as the commander of a Romulan Republic Warbird. Its last expansion, Star Trek Online: Delta Rising, brought players into the Delta Quadrant and reintroduced them to iconic members from the Star Trek: Voyager cast including Seven of Nine, The Doctor, Harry Kim, Neelix and Tuvok. In Star Trek Online players have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek universe, reach out to unexplored star systems and make contact with new alien species.
