Star Trek Online is a premium free-to-play MMORPG set in the official Star Trek universe in the year 2409. Players pioneer the galaxy as a Captain of a Federation starship, or they expand the Empire as one of the Klingon Warlords.
Players can choose at the beginning of the game between a wide range of races going from humans and Andorians to Trills and Vulcans. They can customise them further in the character creation tool before they set off on their journey. Apart from the Character, players can also customise their spaceship and their crew. After creating their character, players can choose between three different kinds of officers, giving them unique benefits and they can decide what kind of spaceship they want to flight.
Players work slowly their way up from a mere captain to a high ranked Admiral, running one of the best U.S.S. Starships in the whole solar system. On their journey, players have the possibility to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction like Starfleet Academy, The First City of Qo’nos or Deep Space Nine.
Star Trek Online comes with its own Foundry toolset. This gives players the possibility to create their own content, and they can share it with the community.
