Star Trek Online Couldn't Resist The Borg

Cryptic just couldn't resist using the Borg as its first big content update for Star Trek Online. After all, nothing can move the Borg! Wait, that's not right.

The Borg are the best at what they do, and what they do isn't pretty. Having recovered after the Voyager crew somehow dealt them a severe blow, in 2049 the Borg are back to full strength, and it's up to the players of Star Trek Online to take them down. The Borg update will add a bunch of high-end content to Star Trek Online, with missions including:

• 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 new Borg Queen? She was a bad idea in Star Trek: First Contact. Does a horrible idea become better with time?

The Borg - no one can eat just one.


    Well, it'll give those crazies who power-levelled up to the rank of Admiral in the first week something to do... I'm trying to take it slow and steady, don't want to burn through all the content just yet.

    Are you sure about the year? 2049 seems a bit too early?

      "Before the 15th century" -from wiki

    can you get yourself assimilated?

      Nope. you've got to buy a lifetime subscription for that...

    Naturally these screenshots display just how much gameplay in mmos revolve around standing still doing nothing.
