Star Trek Online Launches The
Star Trek Online has launched but
the fun is just beginning! Atari and Cryptic are proud to announce The Borg Hub.
The Borg Update is the first of many
post-launch content packages Cryptic has created for Star Trek Online.
Cryptic will be releasing awesome
new Episodes for high-level players to enjoy. These Episodes are Borg-themed and
explain what has occurred within the Borg civilization in the time between Star
Trek: Nemesis and 2409, the year in which Star Trek Online occurs.
Previously, the Borg were thought to
be severely weakened by the actions the USS Voyager, as fans of the show will
remember. But in 2409, the Borg have regained and surpassed much of their old
strength, and Episodes in the Borg Update will add more substance to that
portion of STO’s story. Players will eventually face off against the Borg Queen,
the leader of the Collective, but the road to her lair is a very dangerous path.
Some upcoming Episodes include:
The Cure – A planet has been
completely taken over by the Borg. Fight them for control of the planet.
Khitomer Accord – Travel back in
time and uncover and participate in the events that led to the release of old
Borg you encountered in the Tutorial Episode.
Into the Hive – Track down a
missing Starfleet captain and come face to face with the new Borg Queen.
The Borg content is designed for
high level players (level 43). Work your way up through the ranks and even you
can challenge the Borg Queen.
