We’ve been through the Age of Discovery, and celebrated a Legendary Anniversary, but now it’s time to return to 2411 for good, Captains. Welcome to the Year of Klingon. Welcome to House Divided. In this epic new update for Star Trek Online, a brand new face is joining our stories cast – Robert O’Reilly, who played Chancellor Gowron in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, is joining the cast as Aakar, Gowron’s ancestor and a loyal servant of the treacherous Ju’la. Players have already met Aakar in The Rise of Discovery, but Robert O’Reilly brings a new dimension and character to the role. Gowron was a brilliant, crafty leader, and time will tell if those traits came from his Grandfather.
In addition, an old fan favorite returns. J.G. Hertzler is stepping back into the role of Martok, rejoining our cast as our focus turns again to the Klingon Empire. With the incursion of J’ula into the modern era, more and more Klingons are listening to her message of a return to “traditional” ways. What side will Martok choose?
