In celebration of the release of Star Trek Online's Season 6: Under Siege update, the team has presented to us a brand new trailer! A shipload of new content and changes has come, including new challenges, events, rewards, and social experiences.
"Our primary focus with Season 6 is to have fleets become a more central and fundamental part of the Star Trek Online experience," said Dan Stahl, Executive Producer of Star Trek Online, Cryptic Studios. "Fleets may now work to improve their Starbase category, unlocking additional functionality and increasing the size and grandeur of the Starbase itself.""
Fleet Starbase Defense Missions
New missions and events that call upon Fleets to defend their Starbases include a five-man Starbase Alert, two five-man Fleet Sorties, and a 20-man Fleet Action. Some of these will be available at all ranks, while others will only be available to Vice Admirals (Federation Faction) and Lieutenant Generals (Klingon Faction).
New features to the Foundry, Star Trek Online's popular user-content creation tool, include an improved user interface, which makes it easier for players to identify items prior to map placement.
Players will also be able to find additional items such as vivid backdrops, as well as new ground and space maps in the content library.
Unlock the new Starbase Exterior and Interior options as your Fleet advances in the aggregate Starbase track. In the other tracks, stores that sell ultra-rare Fleet Rewards, such as new high-end gear, starships, costumes, materials and various tactical assets, can be unlocked.
Fleet UI Redesign
Expect a new Fleet Home Page and Fleet Holdings Page, which has been created to provide information on Fleet Status, Projects and Contribution Leaderboards.
New Max-Level Content
New missions, events, challenges, and end-game content designed specifically for max level players are also included in Season 6: Under Siege. Try "No Win Scenario", the five-man space challenge, or "Colony Rescue", the five-man ground challenge.
