Star Trek Online launches Season 12 on January 26

It's hard to believe that Star Trek Online is coming up on its seventh anniversary. But you should believe it; the game has been running for seven years, and it's kicking off its anniversary celebration with the launch of Season 12: Reckoning on January 26th. This patch sees the players facing off against the Tzenkethi with the help of the Lukari to prevent the race from utilizing wide-scale deployment of protomatter weaponry.

Players will have access to two new queues, a new featured episode with actor Tony Todd as General Rodek, and a new reputation to improve. The anniversary event will also include the new Lukari science ship and plenty of other festive rewards for all captains, whether you've been with the game since it first left drydock or only started playing recently. Check out a small gallery for the update just below, and get ready to kick off another year of boldly going in just a couple more weeks.

While it's great to see new content, it would be great if it wasn't always a war against some new alien race.


It's great they are advancing the time, apparently, because they fought like 10 wars in 2410. Which is just ridiculous.

So, they did get license to the NX-Refit that was supposed to be in Enterprise in Season 5 (had there been one). That's pretty cool. T5U ship? I can't see it as a full T6. Probably lockbox at any rate.

I might be tempted to run through that if I didn't already have two subs going but on the bright side I will have something to play once I run out of steam with my current games whenever that may be :-)

Um, you know STAR TREK ONLINE is still free to play, from start to max level with no paywalls in game content, right? Subs are not needed.

@KenFromChicago I said I bought the lifetime sub when it WAS a sub game. Now I get cash for the in game store every month. I'm sitting on 13,000 as we speak. 


I figured out that it was like paying for around 18 months up front. Even 18 months on, the game was still a sub game. It went F2P a bit after that year and a half passed.

@BalsBigBrother I bought the lifetime sub years back on sale when it was still a sub game. I jump in and out as I want and get a decent amount of currency for the cash shop. I havent paid for anything in the game store since I bought the sub. back in it now and having a good time. Lots of content.
