Star Trek Online brings back a time travel event for September

    
15

It’s time to go back to Star Trek Online — and we mean way back, back to the original series era. Cryptic announced that, starting September 8th and running through October 7th, it is reviving the Temporal Agent Recruitment event that focuses on the 23rd century content in the game.

The idea here is to make a brand-new TOS Starfleet character, who is then handed special missions to complete for the Temporal Cold War. Do enough of these missions, and you’ll earn bonuses and rewards, including some new goodies this time around.

It also sounds like Captain Kirk’s stomping grounds are getting some touch-ups as well. “Since you’ll be playing through the Original Series era content for this, we’ve gone through and done some visual updates and updated cutscenes for that era, as well as updating and improving the missions themselves,” explained the studio.

This is an event many people cause unlike the other recruiting event it has run only once in the game’s lifetime and gives among the best rewards among the recruit events too

Probably the best starting point in STO.

Always saddens me that they removed the TOS film grain from those missions :(
Love the pics tho, especially the first one!

As a TOS fan I can’t agree. I thought the film grain effect was the stupidest thing they did. For me it just went to show how much disrespect Al Rivera had for the original Star Trek series; especially when this was originally done back in 2016, 12 years after the beautiful high-definition episode remasters were released in 2004.

I’m very happy that film grain crap is gone.

Each to their own an all that, I liked it & it set them apart from the rest of the game.

Although the Cryptic games are grindy (especially Neverwinter), I find them fun as casual games that I can just jump into, do a sort (or long) session, and achieve something. Apart from fun gameplay, they are the most customisable that I play.

I just love how people such as yourself feel that a game, or anything for that matter, shouldn’t exist simply because YOU don’t like it.

You don’t have to play the game, it’s a choice. There are plenty other options out there.

There seems to be this idea that games like STO or SWTOR need to die so they can be replaced with some mystical “better” MMO based on the IP. The problem is, neither game did “WoW Breaker!” numbers. I think when either of them does finally die, there just stops being a Star Wars / Star Trek MMO. There might be more games in those settings, and if we’re lucky you’ll even be able to make your own characters. But they won’t be MMOs. “We’re not spending the money to make that. The last one only did ‘okay.’ We don’t want ‘okay.’ We want *all the monies!*”

For me, the problem is PWE running the IP. I really miss the sub-only days under Atari. It was a better game to me. You had your trinity of tac as DPS engineer as tank and science was the healer. Now everyone is DPS. The game is filled with loot boxes and so much grind content. Now the game is known as the biggest MMO filled with whales. In Atari days everything was earned by playing the game. No ships locked in loot boxes or the lobi store.

I’m pretty sure the whale store was selling ships and character species unlocks even when Atari owned them. And Atari is directly responsible for the situation at launch, where hitting the release date was more important than even finishing the game. Atari is directly responsible for the Klingons being barely even *IN* the game to start, and little more than a PVP only “monster play” faction for ages.

Where’s the downvote button on this website? You are definitely needing it. A lot of it.
