    We’re happy to announce that the next major update to Star Trek Online, Rise of Discovery, is coming to PC on May 14th, and to Xbox One and Playstation 4 this summer. This brand new update will be lead by two alumni of Star Trek: Discovery: Rehka Sharma, and Jason Issacs, as Commander Ellen Landry and Captain Gabriel Lorca. This new adventure will feature two new episodes that show Captains the fate of the U.S.S. Buran, and the past of these two fascinating characters, before Captain Lorca took command of the U.S.S. Discovery. But that’s not all. As part of this major update, we’ll be releasing the brand new Discovery Legends Reputation. Players will be able to earn new Discovery marks from the returning TFOs “Operation: Riposte,” “Peril over Pahvo,” and “Pahvo Dissension,” which they can apply towards two new space sets, a new ground set, new kit modules, new traits,

    DefianceIndustries

    has debuted his Bearcat, and it's a beauty! Wingnuts overall have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the heavy fighter, but I've always been a fan. I love the aggressive stance from the head on perspective as well as the substantial engine cluster. It's hard to have a conversation about the ship without dragging in discussion about its wide-spaced guns, but they sure look cool. We really don't get to play with the ships nearly enough, and if we ever got a game where the Bearcat got more play time, it'd probably have a different gun loadout with better beam convergence anyhow.

    Oh speaking of Bearcats...

    This is oddly one of my favorite Confed designs, it's clearly an evolution of the Hellcat but there's some definite Excalibur influence as well. Also on paper, it's actually quite a nice fighter; she's fast, nimble, and has better shields and armor than her big

    This normally wasn’t Lieutenant Whetu’s job, but today she was happy to do it. She stood ramrod-straight, hands clasped behind her back, waiting. She realized after a momentthat she had adopted the stance a little too early, as it was still a few minutes before she heard the soft “thunk” of the inspection pod docking with NX-96400’s hull. Finally, the airlock in front of her hissed as it pressurized. A telltale light flashed from red to green, and the hatch slid open. Beyond it was a tall Andorian zhen in a crisp Starfleet service uniform sporting captain’s pips. The yoke of the uniform was gray instead of captain’s white, as this ship was not hers to command… not yet, anyway. She turned to the shorter Deltan officer beside her. “Thank you, Ensign. This is my first time as a plankowner and my first time to command a brand new ship. The hull was as clean as fresh snow

    The Pilots' Federation has revealed plans to establish a restricted area of space for newly licensed Commanders.


    In a statement, spokesperson Gabriel Sanchos gave the following details:


    "Following discussions with the three superpowers, representatives have acknowledged that independent pilots are a mainstay of the galactic community. As such, a Pilots' Federation District will be created for new Commanders, offering combat exercises and tailored assignments within several designated systems."


    "The intention is to offer pilots an opportunity to complete contract assignments without exposing them to opportunistic criminals. Access to the district will depend on the possession of a permit granted to new Commanders alongside their Pilots' Federation license. This permit will be revoked once a certain level of experience has been acquired."
