Star Trek Online: Agents of Yesterday brings Star Trek fans and Star Trek Online players closer to Star Trek: The Original Series - the beloved series that served as the buildings blocks of one of the most popular science-fiction franchises. The expansion harkens back to key themes from Star Trek: The Original Series, including the search for new life and new civilizations. Fans will be able to take on the role of a Captain from Star Trek: The Original Series and visit multiple locations taken directly from the show, including Taurus VII and Edren (the Gorn Rock Planet). In Agents of Yesterday, five new TOS-era playable starships will also join the classic Enterprise, Constitution class starship, including the Daedalus class Science Vessel. In an effort to immerse players even more into Star Trek: The Original Series, Walter Koenig and Chris Doohan, son of James Doohan, will bring both Chekov and Montgomery ‘Scotty’ Scott to life in Star Trek Online: Agents of Yesterday.
“Star Trek Online has been able to explore other eras in the franchise from
Star Trek: Enterprise to Star Trek: Voyager, while continuing to add to the core
Star Trek narrative,” said Steve Ricossa, executive producer of
Star Trek Online. “The 50th Anniversary of Star Trek presents a unique opportunity and challenge for our team, to faithfully venture back in time to one of the most iconic science-fiction settings and eras in television history. Combining
Star Trek: The Original Series with Star Trek Online allows us to take players on some new and unique adventures in a time period that is beloved by fans.”
