Opening a hailing frequency to all Trekkies playing Star Trek Online. There is some good news coming your way. Star Trek Online is celebrating its ninth anniversary, and the launch of season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery, by launching a brand new update called Mirror of Discovery.

Perfect World Entertainment announced yesterday (1/9) that the new update will be coming to PC on January 23rd (and later to consoles). In Mirror of Discovery, players will live out the storyline based on an episode of the show where the U.S.S. Discovery and its crew were inexplicably warped into the Mirror Universe in the year 2256.

The update opens in the year 2410, where Captains will travel to the forest planet of Pahvo, amidst an ion storm, that transports a group of time-traveling survivors from the I.S.S Discovery. One of these survivors is the main character of the event, Captain Sylvia “Killy” Tilly (voiced by Mary Wiseman), the Terran ship’s ruthless leader who murdered her way to the captain’s seat.

“This is an exciting moment for Star Trek: Discovery fans, as the real Killy was never seen on the show, except when she was imitated by her Prime self, Ensign Sylvia Tilly. Captains will now have the opportunity to meet the Slayer of Sorna Prime herself while uncovering what really happened to the legendary Terran Crossfield-class starship that fateful day in 2256.”

According to the press release, fans will get to play through two brand new missions titled, “Para Pacem” and “The Illusion of Communication.” Mirror of Discovery will also bring back the Omega Molecule Stabilization event, in celebration of the game’s 9th anniversary. Players can collect Omega particles scattered across the galaxy to earn the new T6 Vulcan Scout Ship (featured in Star Trek: Discovery).

The update also introduces the new Personal Endeavors System, which offers players “daily challenges to complete for account-wide performance boosts.” Stay Tuned to Gaming Access Weekly for a full list of features, which will be provided when Mirror of Discovery launches on PC January 23rd.
