Star Trek Online’s new season is called House Shattered, but it is not in fact about shattering actual houses, as satisfying as that might be. Instead, it’s a continuation of the Year of the Klingon storyline, and it’s live today for PC players just in time for the game’s official launch on the Epic Games Store.
“After the tragic events which unfolded at Khitomer during House Divided, Captains have been labeled as enemies of the Klingon Empire. Players must seek refuge on Nimbus with Klingon captain, Adet’Pa, brought to life by Rekha Sharma from Star Trek: Discovery (Fans may also remember her as Commander Ellen Landry from Rise of Discovery). Also on the run are General Martok (voiced by J.G Hertzler from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and J’Ula, sister of T’Kuvma. The Klingon matriarch’s general, Aakar (voiced by Robert O’Reilly from Star Trek: The Next Generation) has teamed up with J’Mpok to hunt players down with stolen Mycelial weaponry. Without taking sides in a brutal civil war, it’s up to players to end the bloodshed and re-establish peace in the galaxy.”
In addition to the new episode, there’s a new task force operation, a revamp of older Klingon missions, a new event – the Widening Gyre – on the way “in the next month, and a the new ship upgrade tokens.
The console launch for House Shattered isn’t coming until January 12th of next year, so PC players, it’s all you for now.
