Star Trek Online: Age of Discovery unveils a May 14 PC release date

The steady stream of details for Star Trek Online’s latest content update has reached its logical conclusion: a release date. PC players can fly in to the newest content this coming Tuesday, May 14th, and in the process meet up with some new Hollywood actors along the way.

Star Trek Online builds on its star power by adding actors from Star Trek: Discovery to this round of story content; Jason Isaacs will be reprising his role as Captain Gabriel Lorca, and Rekha Sharma will be starring as the in-game version of Commander Ellen Landry. Fans of the current series will recognize those actor and character names well, but for those of us without CBS All Access, Isaacs is best known as Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise, while fans may recognize Sharma from her role on Battlestar Galactica as Tory Foster.

In terms of story content, information is pretty much the same in the press release as it was in a PC Gamer piece that we previously reported on. There’s also the T6 starship leveling feature to look forward to and a new reputation track to follow. As for console players, it’s the usual “later date” release window for you. Sorry.

Boo to all those ppl who decried discovery as “not Star Trek”
It’s really proved them wrong in series 2! Hopefully we’ll get more series in time…

To be fair, it wasn’t Star Trek in Season 1. It was painful to watch. Then they got Michelle Paradise on board who actually likes Star Trek and that went a long way to fixing it.

Alex Kurtzman had to do a loooot of fixing for all the decisions Bryan Fuller made. I rather enjoyed the season, myself.

From the article:

Um, 5/14 ISN’T “this coming Tuesday…” it’s over two weeks away (just saying) :)

It’s amazing they got Jason Isaacs to voice his role in STO. I wonder if we’re seeing the Prime version of Lorca before he gets swapped by the MU counterpart. Or if we see the mission where he gets swapped. Hmm.

Spoiler
It looks like this will be Prime Lorca, because it also involves Landry in some fashion.

STO does a really good job, especially recently, in getting the actors to reprise their roles.

It would be incredible if they got Patrick Stewart. The Picard show is much closer to the STO era, and I’m certain they’ll have content based on it late next year.

Rise of Discovery, not Age.

Also… I’m usually great at picking out voices and actors (especially voices) so I am now beside myself that I didn’t recognize him as Lucius…

He does not use the same voice as Lorca though

Oddly, that doesn’t usually matter for me, oddly enough.
