You can catch a glimpse of the lauded hero in the trailer above, and though he doesn’t speak, we do know that LeVar Burton will, in fact, be lending his voice talents to Star Trek Online for the game’s 14th season.
The new season kicks off in October with the episode Emergence, but players won’t have to wait that long to be La Forged. He’ll be featured in the September story, too., Beyond the Nexus. In it, Captain La Forge teams up with players to investigate a galaxy-class starship (the same class that the Enterprise was). The crew of this ship has been mind controlled and it’s up to you and La Forge to figure out why and break the curse.
This episode will coincide with Star Trek: The Next Generation’s 30th anniversary, so all month long, Perfect World will be celebrating with server-wide giveaways and special, TNG-themed items.
The trailer above also shows us a glimpse of what’s in store for Star Trek Online in 2018. Yup, that’s Deep Space Nine. That’s still a ways away, so we’re going to have to stay tuned to see what’s up for STO in 2018.
