Star Trek Gold
Star Trek Online is all about putting the grandness of the Star Trek universe at your fingertips.

One such storyline is getting a very interesting twist for players as it’ll allow them to grow their quarters and their abilities despite a tragic loss.
The update takes place because of the episode “Painful Omens,” in which Starbase K-13 was lost to a temporal anomaly. The development revealed that in an update that is set to arrive later this year which likely means next week players will be able to find out just what happened to Starbase K-13 as well as find out what technologies are locked away inside the base. Furthermore this update will allow Starbase K-13 to become available as a Fleet Holding one that will be themed in the style of the original series. This will be available to all fleets in the game.
As for how it’ll improve your character Fleet Station K-13 will feature unlockable projects which can grant you both exterior amenities as well as character improvements. There will apparently also be creature comforts befitting a captain like yourself. Fleets can also unlock inter-fleet shuttle access that will allow for fast travel to K-13’s location.
Finally there will be 8 special project unlocks that will run for two weeks each. The fifth unlock starts today and ends on January 5th.
So if you’re up for finding out what happened to Starbase K-13 as well as helping yourself out in the process go check out Star Trek Online.
Star Trek Online arrived on PC in the busy MMORPG scene in February 2010 just as the sun started to set on the genre. But the game followed industry trends to keep its playerbase relaunching in January 2012 with a free-to-play tier and releasing semi-annual "season" expansions of new content at no cost. Today it's landing on PS4 and Xbox One following other FTP titles in the move to consoles.
Whatever their genre microtransaction-filled MMOs have been erratically arriving on home game systems for a few years. It took DC Universe Online three years from its launch on PS4 in 2013 to jump over to Xbox One last April while the MOBA title Smite came to Microsoft's system in August 2015 and then Sony's this past May. And they keep coming with the third-person MOBA Paragon arriving on PS4 last month. Despite Star Trek Online's troubled development process and hiccups along the way it's seeking new life and more players in a well-precedented move to consoles.
