Star Trek Online launches season 14: Emergence

Star Trek Online have launched their fourteenth season of content, Emergence, which sees a new suite of content based around a colony world of the Lukari and Kentari, and Captain Geordi La Forge, voiced by LeVar Burton, helping them get set up. Continue below for more details, after this trailer:



Here's the summary of the story content for this new season:
This season is filled with new content, returning characters, and an amazing reveal almost a year in the making. This past summer General Martok was found alive, broken out of prison in grand fashion, and reunited with the Klingons. Just last month, captains in Star Trek Online were able to team up with Captain Geordi La Forge on a mission near the Nexus - last seen in Star Trek Generations. With Season 14, Captain La Forge is back in the captain’s chair of the U.S.S. Challenger, and he’s been working with the fledgling Lukari/Kentari alliance to build a habitable colony world that will reunify their people. There has been a mystery swirling around the motivations of the genocidal Tzenkethi, and the first major puzzle piece will fall into place with the featured episode “Melting Pot” that releases today.

In addition to this great new chapter in the Tzenkethi Crusade, captains will be able to participate in a wide variety of new content that is all focused around this brand new Lukari/Kentari colony. Captains will be able to head to orbit and defend the colony from space, as nearly any enemy group will approach and attempt to gain access to the protomatter technology of the Lukari.

The Tzenkethi are the most interested in expanding the destructive power of their protomatter technology, and will actually assault the colony itself in order to obtain more of it. 10 captains can work together to clear the beaches of the colony of a massive Tzenkethi invasion, and coordinate with Geordi to get them off the planet altogether.

Captain Tzen-Gravu is also stepping up the scope of the Tzenkethi Crusade through a brand new Red Alert. Captains will be tasked with defending planets from the Tzenkethi’s new protomatter weapons, with failure meaning the loss of an entire world.
The release also includes new character abilities and fleet options. See the full announcement article for details. The first adventure of the season, as mentioned above, is Melting Point. Here's the blurb:
Dranuur is a paradisiacal world hidden behind a space anomaly that warps sensors. There, with a little engineering and a little bioforming, the Lukari and the Kentari have established a new colony. This idyllic home is in its early stages of development, still under construction, but it’s quite the departure from the polluted New Kentar or the tiny moon of Lukar.

In “Melting Pot,” you’ll pay a visit to the new joint Lukari-Kentari colony.  The two newcomers to the galactic scene have forged an uneasy collaboration in an attempt to make their new colony world the best of both of their cultures—if they can find common ground to agree upon!  With Captain Kuumaarke and Captain La Forge, explore what Dranuur holds and find out if the colonists can make it work. But remember, settling a new planet may draw the attention of other galactic powers. And the Lukari and Kentari keep their own secrets…

Alongside the new season, there is a new Tzenketi themed lock box. Among the items to be acquired from this are three new ships, the Tzenkethi Shuk-din escort, Tzenkethi Rhas’bej battlecruiser, and Lukari N’kaam scout ship. You can find stats of all three on the STO blog.




As usual the lock box also offers a variety of character traits, weapons and such like, including a set of Tzenkethi armour. You can find the details of everything available on the STO blog as well.
