The designers are also looking to the future beyond that with plans to expand the Pilot specialization in the Season 10 update. Currently it’s a secondary specialization, but the next major update will flesh it out further and make it a primary specialization, along with adding the ability to slot any specialization as a secondary specialization for limited benefits. Check out the newly expanded abilities in the tree in the full development blog.[Source: New Episode, Pilot Specialization. Thanks to The_Grand_Nagus for the tip!]
Star Trek Online‘s run to date has featured an obvious villain waiting in the wings: the Iconians. Everyone knows they’re out there, but they’re a little hard to just find and deal with, what with the whole “elusive ancient enemies” thing. But on March 26th, the game is launching a new feature episode, Uneasy Allies, which picks up with the imprisoned Empress Sela as the full Iconian plot finally begins to surface. It’s meant to appeal to players who’ve been invested in the game’s storyline to this point.
