Just because Star Trek: Voyager was pretty horrible doesn’t mean we don’t miss the folks who starred in it. Five members of Captain Janeway’s crew are reprising their roles for the next Star Trek Online expansion, “Delta Rising”.
That’s right, Star Trek Online is still a thing that’s happening, and its next expansion is due out in October. “Delta Rising” centres around the Delta Quadrant, that far-off sector of the Milky Way galaxy that we spent so much time exploring back when the USS Voyager was accidentally stationed there.
Along with Tim Russ’ Admiral Tuvok and Garrett Wang as Captain Harry Kim of the USS Rhode Island, we’ll also be treated to the voice talents of Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Ethan Phillips (Neelix) and Robert Picardo (The Doctor).
Instead of travelling the Borg wormhole network as the Voyager crew did some 32 years ago in game continuity, players will access the Delta Quadrant via a recently-discovered Iconian gateway that’s sure to have Harry and the gang kicking themselves repeatedly.
In the Delta Quadrant players will discover strange new worlds, seek out new life and civilisations, boldly going from level 51 to 60 via the new level cap.
Star Trek Online, as mentioned previously, is still a thing — a thing that can be played for free by signing up at the game’s official website.
