Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios released Star Trek Online: Season 13.5 for PC. The new update brings a new episode and two gameplay updates.
Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios want you to know that Star Trek Online: Season 13.5 is now live on PC. It will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a later date.
This mid-season update to Season 13: Escalation sends players on a rescue mission for the captured Klingon General Martok. The general is 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.
The story starts once the 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".
The detainee is Klingon General Martok, and the "captains must now join forces with the Klingons to liberate their infamous leader, as his reappearance may have drawn the attention of the Tzenkethi".
Two new gameplay updates have also been applied. The Endeavor System that generates challenges for players to complete for rewards and the Ferengi Trade Alliance Admiralty that helps captains boost their economy with the support of the Ferengi Alliance.
All new features include:
- 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.
