Star Trek Online sees a New Dawn

The mirror universe is colliding with our own in Star Trek Online’s Season 11, and it’s going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.

Season 11: New Dawn is a massive content update that takes place following the Iconian War, starting with featured episode Sunrise where captains will investigate a dying star. There’s also a crossover with the Terran Empire at Deep Space Nine, the new admiralty system, a revamp of the Cardassian arc, and a Badlands battlezone for level 60 players.

Cryptic’s been heavily promoting Season 11 lately with giveaways, and the studio is handing out three free starships today to celebrate the update. You can read the full patch notes before warping into the game and check out the trailer below.

Still, nice prize. It’ll come around again.

RicharddeLeonIII Unfortunately, the free “ships for all Captains” can ONLY be claimed if you reach Rear Admiral rank.  Seems silly since the upgrade token could be claimed and held even if you could not use it yet.  :(

BKone Funny, as I recall, Cataclysm was not very well liked overall, and the retention was bad in Blizzard’s management’s eyes; ergo the changes in Mists of Panderia, which by contrast was considered a more successful expansion then Cataclysm.

The new FE was decent trek.  Very little in the way of combat, too much Technobabble, but given the subject matter it’s something that can be let slide.

BKone No one complained? You must be wearing your big boy rose-tinted glasses, or have a REALLY bad memory. There were MASSIVE complaints about the Cataclysm revamp. A lot of the new questlines were pretty good, but they retired (i.e REMOVED) a ton of questlines that were good as well. All in the name of “stream lining” the game.

I patched and logged in again today after about a two-year year absence to claim my upgrade token, and wow, it was like playing a whole new game. One I would need a telephone directory-sized manual to understand again. :D

Armsman You very well know why that are doing that to the Cardie missions. Those are the last remaining missions that the game launched with. Absolutely subpar by todays standards. And they weren’t high quality when the game launched in 2010 either. It was a rushed job and it shows.
Also Blizzard has revamped their old world in their MMO in one go in 2010. Noone complained. Cryptic revamps, everyone goes mad…
