Time travel might not happen on Star Trek as much as it does on, say, “Doctor Who.” But it’s still a popular activity and story device.
Star Trek Online, the massively multiplayer online game from Arc Games, has utilized time travel in several of its episode storylines. But just in time for the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the game will really give players a chance to jump back into classic “Star Trek.”
As part of the third expansion of “Agents of Yesterday,” players can jump back into the days of Kirk, Spock and McCoy to take command of a 23rd century era starship, much like the Constellation class of the USS Enterprise.
“Throughout this expansion, players will visit familiar places, see familiar faces, and show the quadrant what a rough-and-tumble captain from the greatest generation of Starfleet can do,” STO’s executive producer Stephen Ricossa wrote in a blog announcement of the expansion.
