The latest chapter of the Star Trek Online expansion, Age of Discovery, has been annouced as Mirror of Discovery, which will be coming to PC January 23rd! This will see Captain Killy come into the game, voiced by Mary Wiseman from the series Discovery, a familiar voice to many.

In this update, we will learn what happened to Killy, and the crew of the ISS Discovery, after the ship crossed into the Prime Universe. There will also be new content, in the form of Discovery themed featured episodes, the anniversary challenges, and an update the the Endeavor system, which some are likley to be excited to see, and hear more about.

You will see in this article, the release trailer for the new content, which demonstrates the swapping of locations for the Discovery, but doesn't give anything else away other than that. The fate of the ISS Discovery is not all that well known, other than it is believed to have been destroyed by the Kingons shortly after the change of universe in the episode "Despite Yourself".

Mirror of Discovery will open in the year 2410, when Captains travel to the forest planet of Pahvo amidst an ion storm that transports a group of time travelling survivors from the I.S.S Discovery. This includes the one and only Captain Sylvia “Killy” Tilly. The real Killy was never seen on the show, except when she was imitated by her Prime self, Ensign Sylvia Tilly. Now you will now have the opportunity to meet the Slayer of Sorna Prime herself, while uncovering what really happened to the legendary Terran Crossfield-class starship that fateful day in 2256.

These events all transpire across two new featured episodes in Star Trek Online, “Para Pacem” and “The Illusion of Communication”. The missions allow Captains hailing from all of the game’s factions to explore the mysterious woods of Pahvo, while trying to stop Captain Killy from destroying the planet.

With the update, we will see the return of the Omega Molecule Stabilization event, in celebration of Star Trek Online’s 9th anniversary, this time, you will be able to earn the T6 Vulcan Scout Ship, which was featured in Star Trek: Discovery. The update also introduces the new Personal Endeavors System, which offers players daily challenges to complete for account-wide performance boosts.

All the features of the new expansion will be released when the update hits PC on the 23rd of January, also happening in January is the return of Star Trek: Discovery, on the 17th for CBS All Access.

Nice little teaser there, and Tilly/Killy is my favorite character on DISO TREK... but Pike may take that spot soon.
