STAR TREK ONLINE will kick off its seventh anniversary with the release of Season 12 – “Reckoning.” The newest chapter releases on PC January 26 and will follow on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at a later date. Season 12 celebrates Star Trek Online’s upcoming anniversary with giveaways and mini-games, plus two new space queues, a new Research and Development System category and a featured episode titled “Of Signs and Portents.”


This year’s anniversary event for Star Trek Online offers captains the opportunity to complete in-game missions to earn exciting rewards, including the new Tier 6 Lukari Science Vessel, which the community selected the design for last fall.

Players can also participate in two daily missions (‘Omega Molecule Stabilization Daily’ and ‘Party Patrol’) to earn special rewards and play the ‘Omega Molecule Stabilization’ mini-game with Q to earn materials to construct crafting kits. Festivities also include server-wide giveaways for in-game items, which will take place soon on a daily basis leading up to the anniversary event release.


“Reckoning” continues the mission from Star Trek Online’s latest update, “Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts.” Under the leadership of Captain Kuumaarke, the Lukari have set out on a journey to investigate some unusual activity in an unexplored region of the Alpha Quadrant.

Upon further inspection, they discover data that suggests weaponized use of protomatter. Fearing the Tzenkethi are behind this, they put out a call for help to the Alliance, who tasks captains from across the galaxy to help the Lukari prevent a looming cataclysmic attack.

Mission details for “Reckoning” will be revealed in the new featured episode, “Of Signs and Portents,” which will also feature the game’s first appearance of General Rodek, voiced by actor Tony Todd.


The update also unlocks an expansive amount of content for captains to explore, including a new reputation, a new crafting school in the R&D System to create kits and modules, two brand-new space queues (“Gravity Kills” and “The Tzenkethi Front”) and a full space battlezone that has the Alliance pitting itself against the Tzenkethi in a desperate bid to stop the production and deployment of protomatter weapons.

    This is great I like Star Trek Online it has everything it has the Tech from Next Generation DS9 and Voyager and it has constant battles the enemies are everywhere and it has great War Stories, they should of made this into a TV series but I can see the trektards going ”UGH THAT”S NOT STAR TREK” CBS Should boldly Ignore these imbeciles it’s because of them We don’t have great Star Trek stories like Bryan Singer’s STAR TREK: FEDERATION T.V. Pitch Revealed or Star Trek online was supposed to be a TV series but the Fans shot it down because ”THAT”S NOT STAR TREK TO MUCH ACTION WE WANT BLAH BLAH PC AND ALL TALK” this is the reason why we could not get a Mirror Universe series because the Fans shot it down, and this is the reason why the TNG movies failed at Nemesis it’s because the Fans saw the next Generation movies getting more Action packed they got offended and they destroyed the series CBS Ignore these Imbeciles please.

      Very mature, calling names

      “Star Trek online was supposed to be a TV series”

      No it wasn’t.

        Insults should be expected, when people hide behind anonymous names. These same individuals however, rarely know that their IP addresses are being tracked, and could be traced if needed.

    It has been several years since I played this game. I started it at launch and now wished I had the money at the time for the lifetime sub. I understand the game is free to play now, but you lose some of the features by going that route. Just like when I attempted to get back into the old republic … I just don’t think MMO’s are my thing although, I would love to check out what they’ve done as I officially bowed out in year 2. Does anyone know if they finished remastering the original missions?

    Played this at launch and quit after a few months. Every time they release an update I consider jumping back in. Same with the Star Wars MMO. I mostly quit gaming but… Arg, tempting.
