At the Star Trek Las Vegas convention this week, the team from Cryptic Studios and Perfect World dropped a big announce for Star Trek Online in the form of LeVar Burton returning to the franchise to reprise the role of Geordi LaForge – now a Captain.

Starting next month, captains can experience a new Star Trek: The Next Generation-themed featured episode titled “Beyond the Nexus.” For the first time ever, they will encounter Starfleet Captain Geordi La Forge, brought to life by actor LeVar Burton. Players will join La Forge and his crew as they investigate a distress call from a Galaxy-class ship whose crew is being mind-controlled by a mysterious energy source. The episode marks the release of a fully realized Galaxy-class interior available for purchase and includes server-wide giveaways to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The announcements didn’t stop there with the news that Captain LaForge will also be joining us for the plot of Season 14, entitled Emergence. Cryptic also pushed out a new teaser trailer, so lets watch shall we…

Emergence will feature a brand new Fleet Holding in a full-scale colony on the Kentari and Lukari’s new joint homeworld (with five full tiers of progression and rewards), includes a Tzenkethi Red Alert, two new fleet holding defense queues, a new colony map special event, and a new “Miracle Worker” Primary Specialization.
