Jason Isaacs and Rekha Sharma return to the Star Trek: Discovery universe. Perfect World has announced that the actors will lend their voices to Rise of Discovery, the next expansion coming to Star Trek Online.
Rise of Discovery will add two new story episodes to the game. Additionally, the update adds a new Tier 6 reputation, Discovery Legends, allowing players to earn Discovery-themed rewards by completing Task Force Operations. Also, beginning May 14th, all Tier 6 starships will be converted to player level-less scaling, which will allow players for the first time to start flying their favorite starships at any level that they acquire them.
Rise of Discovery takes place two months after the Battle at the Binary stars. Over two new episodes, players fight alongside the U.S.S. Buran and learn what happened to Capt. Gabriel Lorca (Isaacs) and Cmdr. Ellen Landry (Sharma) before they joined the crew of the U.S.S Discovery. The expansion will offer some new insight into two of the most atypical Starfleet officers ever in Star Trek.
Rise of Discovery launches on PC on May 14th and will come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at a later date. Star Trek Online is free to play on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
