Scotty joins Star Trek Online’s Agents of Yesterday expansion

Montgomery Scott casts a long shadow over pop culture in general; if you’ve ever played a game in which the engineer spoke with a Scottish accent, there are even odds that it’s because of James Doohan’s portrayal of the original Enterprise engineer. Doohan’s passing has meant that the character hasn’t had a speaking role thus far in Star Trek Online, but the mantle has now been passed to his son, and the team has offered players a look into what goes in to bringing Scotty into the game properly for the Agents of Yesterday expansion.

The designers went through the series piece by piece to produce a comprehensive model of Scotty’s facial structure and the way that it looked, both in his younger days during the original series and his later years from the films. It’s a fascinating look at how one translates a character from television to the video game arena, resulting in someone you’d be happy to ask to give you more power to the defense screens.

melissaheather Reinstalled it last night myself. The TOS stuff has me interested. A lot changed in a year, especially with skills.

I am sorta feeling the urge to reinstall this game.   I had won a minor-league villain from ST name, an actual lore character name for one of my avatars, and that was sorta nice, might as well keep that character alive too.

That’s pretty neat! I’ve jumped back into this and am playing again to try to prep for the expansion (so basically leveling a fresh character) and plan on subbing for some of the perks (realized there are permanent unlocks, too!) and have been having some good fun with it. This cool news, will be good to hear Scotty again.
Seriously, between the two bullshit fanservice expansions coming out, Legion and Agents of Yesterday, this one is totally the bullshit fanservice I like.

I am excited to see this in game, Chris sounds almost EXACTLY like his dad when doing his “Scotty” voice.
