Star Trek Online announces its final Iconian War episode

Star Trek Online has announced the final episode of its Iconian War arc. The Iconians have been a constant threat for more than five years, writes STO executive producer Stephen Ricossa. “With their backs against the wall and the temporal prime directive in mind, the alliance is poised to make an unthinkable decision,” he says. “These are dark times filled with tough choices and personal sacrifice, the future can be bright again but it’s always darkest before the dawn.”

The post doesn’t specify when the final episode — titled Iconian War: Midnight — will be released.

They did a good job with this final episode. Both the mission itself and
the ending are reminiscent of the final battle and conclusion of the
Minbari-Earth war from Babylon 5. You’re outnumbered a 100 to 1 in
numbers by far superior enemy ships which take 10 of your vessels to
destroy one of theirs and everyone knows they’re not going to win this
battle of the line. So your fellow captains instead resorts to making
the Iconians pay for every mile they intend gain, by turning their
victory as pyrrhic as would be possibly, using cunning and wits to gain
small but ultimately futile victories against individual enemy ships of
which, mind you, there are still tens of thousands in orbit. Then
something sacred from their past relating directly to you, revealing
that basically you are much like Babylon 5’s Valen, is brought to the
attention Iconians by you and much like the Minbari in Babylon 5, the
Iconians end the war instantly while they were only a step away from
total victory.

This is what happens when you don’t read. I logged in and saw Midnight and thought that that meant it would be released at midnight.

I will probably involve time travel to The Bombardment of Iconia 200,000 years ago to deal with The One the Iconians mentioned a couple episodes back.

STO and LotRO are the two MMOs I keep coming back to (CoH would be a third, if it still existed).  I’m fairly far behind on STO content–I’ve never seen the Dyson Sphere stuff, for instance.  I think it’s time to patch it up and return once more.
