PWE and Cryptic have confirmed today that the Star Trek Online universe will collide with the JJ Abrams lore. “Players will soon be able to journey to the alternate reality seen in Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness,” the studios posted today. “A new mission awaits our captains there, along with other exciting surprises! Look for future updates on new Star Trek Online content as the launch day approaches, and we’ll see you in-game for the release of Agents of Yesterday!”

Yes, there’s lore justification for it, not that it will calm naysayers, but really, is there anything you can’t justify with time travel and alternate dimensions?

“The sheer destruction from the Hobus supernova has weakened the barrier between our reality and one strangely similar to our own, leaving a strange temporal anomaly in its wake. This anomaly serves as a gateway between our universe… and a quantum universe both similar and different to our own. Interdimensional travel between these two realms is now a possibility… as the crew of the U.S.S. Kelvin found out to their dismay…”
