Star Trek Online Announces Legacy of Romulus Expansion

Cryptic and Perfect World aren’t content to roll out action MMO Neverwinter this Spring, they also just dropped the news that one of their other free-to-play MMOs, Star Trek Online is getting its first expansion. The Legacy of Romulus launches May 21, 2013 and includes the ability to play as a Romulan (or Reman) Captain aboard a Warbird to explore that faction’s storyline of intrigue. The Romulans were introduced into the game in the Season 7 update in November, but not as a playable race.

In this expansion, also considered the Season 8 update, ST:TNG actress Denise Crosby returns to reprise her role voice acting Romulan Empress Sela. Also, for you fans of the Star Trek franchise, the Tholians make an appearance and you can gain faction rewards by defeating them.

Throw in some UI and trait tweaks and the fact that the expansion will be free and you got yourself some serious Trek love going on here.

Is this enough to interest you in trying out or returning to Star Trek Online? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

The Romulans are finally going to be playable? I’m intrigued. I might actually pick this up.

New enemy looks interesting. Possibly the Hur’q?

I tried STO, it was an interesting game but had clunky mechanics and a horrid UI. Good to see the the update will at least have UI improvements, it is definitely better to look at, they even softened the harsh Klingon red. I think I will re-download to try out this Romulan faction when it is out.
