Star Trek Online prepares a new task force allowing players to relive the Synth Invasion on Mars

This is expensive.

It’s a bit funny that Star Trek: Picard takes place in the future of all the actual television series, but in the not-too-distant past of Star Trek Online, meaning that major events like the attack on Utopia Planitia on Mars are all in the rear view of the game’s actual timeline. So on that level, it is perhaps a bit odd that there is a new task force on the way in which players get to take part in a re-enactment of that battle. Then again, as the fiction introducing the task force makes clear, this is a unique case.

The preamble is that the invasion is a known historical event which was, in many ways, a tragic failure on behalf of Starfleet. Thus, the holodeck recreation is being put forth as a battle which the participants cannot win… but also one that need not be lost in the direct sense, as it is a lesson to be carried forward. Check out the full introduction ahead of the launch on PC in the near future.

At least its a simulation, we can say its not actual history and more an exercise >.<

I stil disavow anything thats happened in STD as far as canon is concerned. Ironically I find Lower Decks more palatable than their live action shows.

This is how they framed the Battle of the Binary Stars TFO as well with it being a holodeck simulation meant to learn from past mistakes. In that one Burgess will occasionally pause the simulation to suggest approaches.
