Star Trek Online: State of Game (Nov 2012)

Posted on November 10th, 2012 by Zach Nicodemous

Dan Stahl has posted a new State of the Game for Star Trek Online:

As we approach our 3rd Anniversary, the STO Team is thrilled that Season 7: New Romulus is almost here. In recent weeks, we’ve seen a steady stream of blogs discussing the new features and content, and some of you have taken advantage of our public test shard to check out these new additions for yourself. We still have a little ways to go, and some feedback to incorporate, but for the most part, we are on track for release in the first half of November.

Season 7: New Romulus offers great new missions and personal progression features designed to complement the Fleet System introduced in Season 6. It is the first time we’ve revisited the STFs and end game rewards since they were introduced in Season 1 and 2 shortly after the game launched. With this new season, we feel that max-level, Borg related STFs, and Vice Admiral/ Lieutenant General rewards will be finally be in a place where we can move forward towards higher ranks in the future.

It also represents a return to the story of what has happened to the Romulans after the destruction of their homeworld. It sets a stage that will allow us to dive deeper into the conflict that is at the core of the STO storyline. By focusing on the internal strife between the fractured factions of the Romulan Empire, captains will vie for the support of the New Romulans much in the way that the Federation and Klingon Empire campaigned against one another in such episodes as “Friday’s Child” and “Errand of Mercy”.

That is why the biggest new feature in Season 7: New Romulus is… New Romulus! Surprise!
