And now, with the latest expansion, players can work to rebuild the Romulan legacy as a member of the Romulan Republic.
Players now have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the Star Trek universe, reach out to unexplored star systems and make contact with new alien species. With Episode Missions, every moment spent playing Star Trek Online will feel like a new Star Trek episode in which you are the star! Beam up and the join the action!
PROS AND CONS
Sticking with the events following Star Trek: Voyager and picking up on older storylines that finally wrap up loose ends left in the Star Trek universe will make gameplay intensely satisfying for Trekkies.
- Space travel
Unlike Starfleet Command, this game actually allows you to travel through space in three dimensions. Up, down, left, right. Exploration and interstellar battle is finally as fun as it has always looked.
- Playable avatar
When playing space-based games, we never expect to leave the cockpit of our ship. Star Trek Online lets players disembark from their ship to walk around both on ground missions and through your very own ship!
- So much game!
It’s expansive for starship captains and ground pounders alike.
- Ground combat
Clunky as can be.
There are a ton of typos in the quest text…WHY?
