From Press Release:
CHICAGO, IL. – April 8, 2022 – Today, Cryptic Studios hosted a panel at Star Trek: Mission Chicago, to reveal the next major game update for Star Trek Online, the free-to-play MMORPG which allows players to experience the Star Trek universe from within. In a panel moderated by Amy Imhoff (Women at Warp), the team announced that the game’s journey through the Mirror Universe will continue with Stormfall, which releases on PC May 10 and on consoles in June. Star Trek Online’s next chapter sends Captains on a rescue mission in the Mirror Universe alongside epic characters, including Admiral Janeway (Kate Mulgrew from Star Trek: Voyager), Admiral Leeta (Chase Masterson from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and an Andorian rebel named “Rae-Yeet” (Noah Averbach-Katz from Star Trek: Discovery). Together, they will stop Terran forces led by the dreaded Captain Killy (Mary Wiseman from Star Trek: Discovery), from reawakening a dangerous nemesis. Stormfall also introduces a complete remaster of the Starfleet tutorial, two brand new episodes, an added Task Force Operation and other new features for Captains to explore.

In the final few moments of the last episode, “Red Shift,” players discovered that the individual they had been searching for is actually Lieutenant Ilia from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. In Stormfall, Captains will receive orders from Admiral Janeway (voiced by Kate Mulgrew from Star Trek: Voyager) to embark on a mission to rescue the captured Deltan Starfleet Officer from a Terran Space Dock. Ilia tells players she needs their help in preventing the Terran Empire from summoning a powerful nemesis. These Terran forces are led by the dreaded Captain Killy (voiced by Mary Wiseman from Star Trek: Discovery) and in order to stop them, Captains will team up with former enemy-turned-ally, Admiral Leeta, (voiced by Chase Masterson from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine),and an Andorian rebel named Rae-Yeet (voiced by Noah Averbach-Katz from Star Trek: Discovery).
These exciting events all take place in two brand new featured episodes for Star Trek Online. Stormfall also introduces a new 5-player ground Task Force Operation and a special event that allows players to earn a new reward for playing through the latest content. In addition, the developers at Cryptic Studios are working hard to remaster the tutorial experience for the Starfleet faction. This upgraded tutorial will not only provide aspiring Captains with a smoother experience, but will also be updated with new environments, plus more interaction with the Borg and Admiral Janeway. Additional details will be revealed when Stormfall officially releases on Arc Games, Stream and the Epic Games Store beginning May 10.
