Star Trek Online: Legacy has officially warped its way to both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This new content had been released on the PC back in January. The release to consoles comes just as Star Trek Online is celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Star Trek Online was released in February 2010 for the PC. It was originally released with a required monthly fee. By 2012 it was relaunched to allow for free-to-play access. Console versions of the game were released in 2016. Since its release, Star Trek Online has managed to explore many of the iconic series of the Star Trek franchise. These include The Original Series, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and even Enterprise.

For Star Trek Online: Legacy, players are offered two new episodes which are Parts 1 and 2 of “Measure of Morality.” Here players are taken to Excalbia, a volcanic planet, and are forced to take part in experiments to determine what is better, good or evil. Trekkies should be familiar with this premise as it is the same one in The Original Series episode "The Savage Curtain."

Representing the side of good in this one includes Seven of Nine, a former Borg turned Starfleet member and introduced in Star Trek: Voyager played by Jeri Ryan. Another character is Michael Burnham, the protagonist of Star Trek: Discovery, played by Sonequa Martin-Green.

There is also an Omega Anniversary Event where players need to stabilize particles spread across the galaxy by the powerful, yet playful, Q. Another is the Task Force Operation known as To Hell With Honor. This 5-player space TFO has players working together to destroy the base J’Ula and her Klingon forces are building.

Players who play the new episodes, participate in the TFO, or take part in the anniversary event have a chance to win the T6 Khitomer Alliance Battlecruiser. This ship is considered as the start of possible peace in the galaxy as it is the first one to have Federation technology combined with that of the Klingon's.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to celebrate and boldly go where no one has gone before.
