Executive Producer Andre Emerson noted that "Last fall marked a historical moment for Star Trek Online, as we explored the vast universe of Star Trek: Discovery and developed content in conjunction with a live Star Trek series for the very first time". As much of the STO content is related from Star Trek series that have been and gone, Discovery has been running during the STO development cycle.

Captains are helped by a sentient hologram of Lieutenant Commander Paul Stamets (voiced by Anthony Rapp), to go back to the 25th century, and stop J'Ula from corrupting the entire Mycelial Network, and repair all the tears caused in the fabric of space. This has been caused by J'Ula, and her Klingon forces stealing Mycelial technology, bringing them into 2410.

These events will transpire over the course of the new episode, debuting with Awakening in september. This update will also introduce a series of new patrols, where you will be going on a mission with Stamets, and other STO luminaries like Lukari Captain Kuumaarke, to reverse the damage caused by the Klingons to the Mycelial Network. This also leads to the updated patrol system as a whole, which will allow better access to the game's patrols, and yield new rewards.

Finally, there will be a new 5-player Task Force Operation and a special Mycelial Event which will allow captains to earn a new T6 Elachi ship by completing the new episode, patrols, and TFO. More details will come out when STA: Awakening launches on PC, September 10th, 2019.

I wonder if this is the game changing announcement that was teased before. I'm happy to return to 2410 and all but I would hope that this wasn't it.

Also happy that we're getting Stamets!!!!! Big Grin

Apparently "changing the face of the game" was just Geko hyping a a storyline he's writing that won't even be released until next year

I'm sure it will be high quality since most of the recent Cryptic stuff has been, but did I read that correctly, it's just one new episode (mission) besides all the fluff of more patrols & TFOs?
