Today, Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek® Online: Season 13.5 is now live on PC and will launch on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One at a later date. A dangerous new assignment awaits captains in the 100% free-to-play, Star Trek-based MMORPG. The mid-season update to Season 13 – Escalation sends players on a rescue mission for the captured Klingon General Martok, played by J.G. Hertzler from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Season 13.5 also introduces a new Ferengi Trade Alliance Admiralty and the Endeavor System, which provides challenges players can complete throughout the week for bonus rewards.
Season 13.5 opens as players are reunited with General Rodek (voiced by Tony Todd) in the brand new featured episode, “Brushfire.” The legendary Klingon general has received intel that an important prisoner is being held in a secret Son’a prison and asks captains to join him in a perilous extraction mission. Players soon learn that the detainee is Klingon General Martok, voiced in-game by J.G. Hertzler, who originated the role in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Captains must now join forces with the Klingons to liberate their infamous leader, as his reappearance may have drawn the attention of the Tzenkethi.
With the release of Season 13.5 today on PC, captains also have access to two new gameplay updates. The Endeavor System generates challenges for players to complete for rewards and the Ferengi Trade Alliance Admiralty helps captains boost their economy with the support of the Ferengi Alliance. A full list of features available with today’s update includes:
- New Featured Episode – Players will team up with the Klingons to free legendary General Martok from a secret prison in the episode, “Brushfire.”
- The Endeavor System – Level 60 captains can earn rewards throughout each week by completing challenges with the new Endeavor System.
- Ferengi Trade Alliance Admiralty – The game’s Admiralty System has been updated to include a new campaign helping captains acquire trades and goods with the aid of the Ferengi Trade Alliance. This new feature is available to all captains Level 52 and above.
