As the Vulcans say, “Live long and prosper.”

By MMO standards, Star Trek Online has managed to do that, and with its 10th anniversary quickly approaching, developer Cryptic Studios has chosen to go all out with the celebration for its free-to-play title.

Now updated to Star Trek Online: Legacy, which is live on PC and coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 3, the game has two new featured episodes that will take players to Excalbia, using a series of trials to test their abilities and pit them against some of Star Trek’s toughest foes. The episodes, a two-part story titled  “Measure of Morality,” also features guests from the franchise’s two most recent series; Michael Burnham of Star Trek: Discovery (voiced by Sonequa Martin-Green) and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) who makes a return in Star Trek: Pickard.

The update also includes a new five-player Task Force Operation, “To Hell With Honor,” taking players to the moon to stop the construction of a Klingon shipyard, and adds the Mycelium TFO from the previous Awakening update into the Task Force Operations’ standard rotation.

Playing the new episodes and TFOS, and participating in anniversary events throughout the next month, will earn players credits to put toward the game’s new T6 Khitomer Alliance Battlecruiser.

Star Trek Online has come a long way since its February 2010 launch, and with the slew of new content being brought to the game with Legacy, looks to keep building and paying tribute to one of entertainment’s most storied franchises.

“These last ten years have been an incredible journey for Star Trek Online,” executive producer Andre Emerson said in a press release. “And it feels like we’re only getting started.”

Over the last decade, we’ve had the honor and privilege of exploring all of the different series that really defined the Star Trek franchise,” Emerson added.  “Looking forward, we are excited about diving further into new shows like Picard and Discovery and want to thank our wonderful community of players for being the reason why opportunities like this even exist.”
