Star Trek Online Releases Free 'Discovery' & Type 7 Shuttles
To commemorate the release of CBS’ brand-new Star Trek series, players can log into the free-to-play MMORPG to claim a free uniform from Star Trek: Discovery. In addition, Star Trek Online is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation by offering captains a free Type 7 Shuttle and releasing a new TNG-themed episode on consoles featuring LeVar Burton.
From now through October 31 at 10:00 am PDT, console captains will be able to claim these items from the Promotions tab of the C-Store on Xbox One.
Starting today, captains can log into Star Trek Online on Xbox One to check out the new Star Trek: The Next Generation-themed featured episode, “Beyond the Nexus.” In this episode, players will team up with Starfleet Captain Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) to aid in rescuing the crew of a Galaxy-class ship under attack. Captains will also be able to purchase a new Galaxy-class interior, which served as home to Captain Picard and his crew during Star Trek: The Next Generation.
But wait, there is more.
From now through November 9 at 10:00 am PDT, console captains between levels 50-60 can team up for the 5-player “Arena of Sompek” event. Rewards for participation include dilithium, marks, crafting material or the new ground weapon, the Sompek Pulsewave. In addition, Star Trek Online is holding a Champions of Sompek Contest which will grant powerful starships and rewards to the top three competing teams.
