Calling all Trekkies! Hensen take the helm and get us to the Alpha Quadrant at Warp 9! Today, Perfect World Entertainment, the makers of Star Trek Online just released Season 12, Reckoning, for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The newest update to the Star Trek-themed free-to-play MMORPG on consoles introduces fans to a brand new enemy, the deadly Tzenkethi. Captains can now face off against this powerful, militant species on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Check out the trailer for the new season below.

Reckoning obviously continues the mission from the last major expansion to release on consoles, Agents of Yesterday. Your factions have discovered an abandoned space station pre-existing from Star Trek: The Original Series next to a remote planet in the Alpha Quadrant.

While you go investigating, players will learn the planet’s entire life force has been wiped out by a protomatter bomb. All signs point to the newest bad guys in the STO universe, the Tzenkethi, as the culprit. This new race is no joke, they are a powerful and highly intelligent warp-capable species. Captains must now team up with the Lukari and a Klingon contingent led by General Rodek (voiced by actor Tony Todd) to stop the Tzenkethi forces from carrying out their doomsday plans.

Season 12 also offers console players new content to explore, including “a challenging new reputation, two new space queues, and new cool new Research and Development school.” According to the press release from Perfect World, the full list of features includes:

  • New Featured Episode – In the brand new episode, “Of Signs and Portents,” captains team up with the Lukari and a Klingon contingent to fight off Tzenkethi forces.
  • New Reputation – “The Lukari Restoration Initiative” allows players to earn marks toward weapons and gear infused with protomatter technology to defend themselves from the Tzenkethi.
  • New Crafting School – Season 12 introduces a new Research School to the R&D System, allowing captains to create new kits and modules.
  • Two New Space Queues 
    • “Gravity Kills” – Captains will lead an attack on a Tzenkethi protomatter facility and collect Hawking particles to drop enemy special defenses.
    • “The Tzenkethi Front” – Players will defend the Eta Serpentis system from a Tzenkethi attack by turning their protomatter weapons against them.
  • Full Space Battlezone – Captains will head into the final frontier to lead an all-out war against the Tzenkethi, in an effort to stop the production and deployment of protomatter weapons.
