Star Trek Online celebrates 5-year mission

The original Enterprise was slated for a 5-year mission when the show aired back in the mid 60s. Sadly that mission was cut short to three years when the show was cancelled, but the Star Trek phenomenon has only gotten stronger since.

This year Star Trek Online is celebrating its 5-year mission as well. The game’s traditional anniversary event, running from January 29th to February 26th, will include special content to commemorate the steadfast MMO’s fifth year in service.

The event will bring a new episode featuring veteran Trek actors Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar) and Garret Wang (Harry Kim). There will also be balance and stability improvements, and an overhaul for the Romulan story campaign.

When Star Trek Online got off to a shaky start (and after an equally shaky development cycle), I was worried that it wouldn’t last. But like Gene Roddenberry and the cast and crew of the Original Series, Cryptic Studios has proved everyone wrong by keeping STO boldly going where no one has gone before.
