Star Trek Online rolls out Season 13.5 on July 18

It never ends.
Things are getting escalated again in Star Trek Online with the release of season 13.5 on July 18th. Players will be tasked with breaking the legendary Klingon general (and former chancellor) Martok from a Son’a prison. This marks the addition of veteran Star Trek actor J. G. Hertzler to the game’s cast after originating the role of Martok on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. You can even check out an interview with Hertzler just below.

This update also includes the new Endeavor system, putting challenges before players to complete on a regular basis for rewards. There’s also a new Ferengi Admiralty campaign for players to work through, offering another avenue of rewards for players with plenty of ships under their command. You’ve got a couple more weeks to go before everything comes on to the live servers, but at least you can be assured it will escalate appropriately once it arrives.

Love Martok so much this is almost enough to drag me back to the game. But then I remember Cryptic, Capt. Geko, PWE and return to my senses. If I need Martok fix I can just watch DS9 on Netflix.

I don’t think it’s a good sign for the future of STO when each new half season consists of one 45 minute story mission.

And of course a new “system” that pushes players to re-do old content. (Though the rewards seem so miserly that it will only appeal to those with OCD)


Yeah, I wonder why they call it ‘.5’ because hell Season 13 only added one new mission as well. They may as well have said Season 14 because of late their Season additions have been pretty sparse.

Still it’s neat they continue to get former Star Trek cast members to do VO for new missions. And it doesn’t cost anything to log in and just play it for that.


No doubt there’s a Son’a lock box in the offing, too. Looks like Martok’s been on ice for a few decades. He looks younger than Worf is in-game.

Oh and I need a Kickstarter donor badge, I think. :)

Hertzler has some fabulous facial hair.
