Star Trek Online: Rise of Discovery Launch Trailer Released

Perfect World Entertainment has released Star Trek Online: Rise of Discovery onto PC. Perfect World also announced that the latest new content update for Star Trek Online will arrive on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 25th.

Rise of Discovery is the third content update inspired by Star Trek: Discovery following Age of Discovery and Mirror of Discovery. The new chapter in the Star Trek Online saga gives players the opportunity to travel back in time and board the USS Buran, meeting Capt. Gabriel Lorca (voiced by Jason Isaacs) and Cmdr. Ellen Landry (voiced by Rekha Sharma). The new episodes included as part of Rise of Discovery reveal the chain of events that ultimately determined the fates of Lorca and Landry in the first season of Star Trek: Discovery.

Check out our interview with Rekha Sharma about Landry's Rise of Discovery story.

Here’s the synopsis of Rise of Discovery: “In the first season of Star Trek: Discovery, fans were introduced to Captain Gabriel Lorca and his Chief of Security, Commander Ellen Landry. However, very little was revealed about their collective past and what led them to assume command of the legendary USS Discovery. These questions will be answered in Rise of Discovery, which takes players to the decks of the USS Buran with Lorca and Landry just one month after the Battle at the Binary Stars. The Federation starship is on a mission to transport Klingon prisoners to a secure facility when it becomes the target of an incursion led by J’Ula, the matriarch of House Mo’Kai. A devastating turn of events leaves Captain Lorca as the sole survivor of the attack. After crash landing on a barren ice moon above Priors World, he must rely on his trusted commanding officer and Star Trek Online players to rescue him before he is apprehended by Klingon forces.”

Here’s the full list of new features included with the Rise of Discovery update:
