Title: STO: Season 2 coming this July, Tonnes of New Features
Post by: Zach on 23 May 2010 10:26 AM
Cryptic Studios have just issued an update via their website announcing the Season 2 update for Star Trek Online.

For those of you who do not know, the "Season" downloads, add new and exciting features into Star Trek Online.  There has already been a Season 1 and Season 1.1 update, which added new features such as the Difficulty Slider, Injury System, Auto-Firing and more.

The Season 2 Update is looking to be one of the best updates to the game thus far, and will be adding some of the follow features:


If all of that isn't enough, Cryptic is also promising some other minor updates to the game, that will be released BEFORE the Season 2 Update - These minor updates include:


When Star Trek Online released, alot of people commented and felt that it lacked alot of things which were expected - and Cryptic always promised that they would update the game heavily in the months following launch with new features and content.

They DO seem to be living up to that promise, and at Hailing Frequency, we are fairly excited about some of the updates that are coming.

If you are one of those people who have been boycotting Star Trek Online, perhaps July or August will be a good time for you to check out the free Star Trek Online Demo - which allows you to play Star Trek Online for an unlimited amount of time, but only through the first couple of missions!

 A lot of this is great news Zach, but should have been included in the launch. Oh well, better late than never I guess! :P
 I am really excited for the Season 2 update because of a few things.

-Federation Diplomatic Corps: I have been waiting for a first contact mission. I hope the calibre will be up to expectations.

-Faction Free Episodes: The ability to pair up Federation/Klingon ships within the same mission will be great. A chance to see a BoP from a non-lethal perspective!

-Fleet Logos: FINALLY!!

-the Squad System: The ability to play along side your fellow Fleet members who are of a different rank than yourself is most appreciated. Formerly, all one could do was park beside them and stare at their cool ships!

Yeah I'm really excited about the Diplomatic Corps... I just pray they're not a let down.  The accolade system seems pretty fun too.  I logged onto Tribble last week with my RA and sat for about 5 minutes while all my previously accomplished accolades scrolled up my screen.

I don't really feel that a level cap bump is needed yet.  I still feel they could add plenty of content for RA5.  How about more Romulan or Cardassian zone STF's?

Im really looking forward to season 2, including my fleet. Me and my friend are always on STO giving DEV's ideas and we dont plan on going anywhere because we have been waiting since 2001 when I first heard about Star Trek Online to play this awesome game. So good luck Devs and keep listening to your players and I really look forward to seeing great things come from guys. :startrek078:
