Star Trek Online tells a scary story for Halloween

    
8
Despite its utopian idealism, Star Trek isn’t a stranger to the occasional scary tale or horror-themed outing. Captains in Star Trek Online have faced many terrors in the night, but perhaps none are as creepy as the one in Hearts and Minds.

This special quest only pops up in the game on Friday the 13ths and Halloween, so you have a very limited time to check it out before it goes away again. It’s a “mad science” theme with a total of 13 (!) enemies that is decidedly different in tone than the rest of the game. The mission features some neat rewards, like a rare duty officer and a Vulcan Lirpa, and since it’s relatively short, it’s worth running to snag these items before they vanish.

Star Trek Online is also running a Halloween costume contest on Risa tonight at 6:00 p.m. EDT that will be judged by the development team.

Haven’t done this one, but could it really be scarier than Bonni Kin, Bonni Kin?

With respect to Mr. Justin, it’s not, Don. It’s a very (very) short “mad scientist” mission which isn’t really creepy at all. The best thing about it is that you receive a special duty officer (“doff”) card upon completion.

For those reading this who want a truly creepy Hallowe’en mission from Star Trek Online, look under the game’s Episodes listings for an episode titled “What Lies Beneath” (a.k.a. “The Bonnie-Kin Mission”) which takes place on Drozana Station. That’s your Hallowe’en Trek chiller, gamer friends — there’s even a nice little mystery to solve.

Cheers,

What Lies Beneath was probably one of the creepiest MMO quests/missions i’ve done in a long time (outside of Secret World setting). I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

They’ve rolled this mission out on Halloween or whenever a Friday the 13th hits for the last 3+ years or so. It’s not bad, but it would be nice if they did a couple more so they could rotate them once in a while.
