Star Trek Online is getting good mileage out of Discovery co-star Mary Wiseman. In their subsequent huge replace on January 23rd – Mirror Of Discovery – gamers of the free-to-play MMO will have the ability to go to the mustache-twirlingly evil mirror universe in a number of new Discovery period quests. Yes, which means we get to fulfill Cadet Tilly’s comically villainous counterpart, the scary Captain Killy. Yes, actually. Killy was lacking (presumed lifeless) within the TV sequence, however the game now confirms that she’s alive, nicely and an amazing alternative for Wiseman to chew on some surroundings.
Somehow, Star Trek Online’s timeline has turn out to be convoluted sufficient to allow a number of timelines and clashing empires to become involved in the identical episodic quest-lines. Still, the truth that it’s rising and shortly to run in parallel with the most recent Star Trek TV sequence isn’t dangerous for an initially-wonky nine-year-old MMO. The Mirror Of Discovery replace will embrace two new episodes set on and across the planet Pahvo, the idyllic forest world first seen in Discovery. The first of these episodes picks up that story arc 150 years later, though I’d not be stunned if time journey is concerned too.
Other than the brand new episodes, the Mirror Of Discovery replace will introduce the Personal Endeavours System, a every day problem/achievement log that you just tick stuff off for rewards and boosts. To rejoice Star Trek Online’s coming ninth anniversary, they’ll even be operating a worldwide occasion with a pleasant reward. Hoover up sufficient Omega Particles across the galaxy and you’ll commerce them in for a tier-six Vulcan scout ship as seen in Discovery. Personally, I’m simply on this for Tilly and, err, Killy, who I hope get an opportunity to speak with one another – that’s half the enjoyable of mirror universes, in spite of everything.
The Mirror Of Discovery replace goes dwell for Star Trek Online on January 23rd. The second season of the present begins on CBS on the 17th. The game is free to play, and you’ll seize it on Arc writer Perfect World’s platform Arc here, or on Steam here.
