Ready to take the next step in the Star Trek Online universe? It’s time to head off on a Rise of Discovery on Xbox One and PS4.
This new installment is definitely for fans of Captain Gabriel Lorca as it offers a look at his pre-Discovery history. Also featured in the new content is Commander Ellen Landry — who we also get some pre-Discovery insight into.
What To Expect
Two featured episodes with characters from Star Trek Discovery wait for you along with a new Tier 6 reputation to rank up in, and the ability for Tier 6 starships to drop their level restrictions and level up along with your character. There’s also a little freebie arriving to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Gold subscribers in the form of reward packs which include a color-variant Tardigrade Combat Pet, a color-variant Assault Drone Vanity Pet and three Master Keys. Subscribers to each service can grab their goods between Tuesday, July 2nd, and Sunday, October 13th.
