Sound the alert! Season 11.5, the mid-season update for the free-to-play MMORPG Star Trek Online, will launch on April 12, 2016. The latest update begins with a brand-new featured episode titled “Temporal Front,” where players must prevent Na’Kuhl Temporal Agents from destroying the Federation. Season 11.5 also brings a complete overhaul to the Skill System, plus other new gameplay updates including the Strategist Secondary Specialization, Romulan Admiralty Campaign and Na’Kuhl Red Alerts.
Season 11.5’s new featured episode, Temporal Front, begins at a post-Iconian War convention attended by leaders representing the Federation, Klingon and Romulan factions. What begins as a peaceful summit quickly turns into chaos, as a threat from the future interrupts the meeting to lead an attack on the embassy. Players must now travel through time and space to prevent the Na’Kuhl from destroying the present by invading our past.
Gameplay updates for Season 11.5 introduce both new and revised systems designed to create a more fluid experience for Star Trek Online players. This includes a Skill System Revamp, aimed at making the process of leveling up much more rewarding, and progressing your characters’ skills easier to understand. With this update, skills progression will be presented in a streamlined, easy-to-use interface that includes more detailed descriptions, as well as better explanations for many combat mechanics.
Other updates include:
· Strategist Secondary Specialization – Players can choose from a selection of space-based abilities, which can shift between offensive and defensive effects.
· Romulan Admiralty Campaign – Captains can earn rewards by completing a new set of Admiralty assignments designed to assist the Romulan Republic.
· Na’Kuhl Red Alerts – This alert system will sound off to lets players know when they can queue up in groups of five to fight off the Na’Kuhl.
