While those of us in the office will have a fair leaning to a favourite sci-fi world, I’m the one who can’t seem to make up my mind. I’d like to think that I’m reasonably balanced and am quite happy to take up a debate for either side in a Star-* debate, but I think that with the newest releases in the Star Trek Online universe, I’ll be back on the winning side.
The guys over at Cryptic Studios are about to push Star Trek Online into its third year of existence, along with a whole bunch of new content for new and experienced players to enjoy. Denise Crosby, who starred in TNG as the first security officer aboard the Enterprise-D as Tasha Yar, will be making a special appearance in an upcoming episode in-game, Temporal Ambassador, where she takes on here original role. Considering how things like pre-animate matter getting caught in the matrix seem to bring on the oddest of situations into play, this seems legit.
Players who partake in a special event hosted by Q during the three-year anniversary event timeframe can look forward to bagging themselves either an Ambassador-class cruiser (Enterprise-C if you’re unsure) if flying for Starfleet, or a Kamarag-class ship if you’re with the Klingon Empire.

Old hands from the Star Trek Online universe will note that Crosby is but one of several actors from the Star Trek films and TV shows that have lent their voice talent to the game, including Leonard Nimoy (Spock from the original series), Chase Masterson (Leeta from Deep Space 9), and Zachary Quinto (Spock from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek film).
One thing is for certain – Star Trek Online’s future is looking bright indeed! And I'll be winning arguments again!
