    The STO team is pleased to announce the second full expansion to the game, Star Trek Online: Delta Rising.

    In Delta Rising, enterprising captains are sent to explore the Delta Quadrant, joining forces with and opposing the efforts of well-known species seen on Star Trek: Voyager, such as the Talaxians, the Ocampa, the Kazon, as well as lesser known species. A lot has changed in these sectors in the 30 years since Kathryn Janeway captained the Voyager through this region of space. With a portal recently discovered within the Dyson sphere providing a quick path to the quadrant, many vessels are being sent to explore the region.

    The expansion features a level cap increase to 60, the first level cap increase in over four years. As captains progress past level 50, they are allowed to train in specializations, picking up additional skills to broaden their capabilities. The areas of specialization, and how captains progress in them will be revealed in future postings as we work our way toward the expansion launch in October of this year.

    The year 2410 also brings with it new technology. The Federation, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Republic have been learning from the many foes they have faced, and have developed new series of starships, more powerful than ever before. These ships have new capabilities not seen before, including innovations in bridge officer seating. Briefings on these new vessels will be released in the coming weeks.

    Watch our exclusive announcement trailer from Star Trek Las Vegas here for all the news from our Dev Panel.

    We look forward to sharing the next chapter in the continuing story of the Star Trek universe, so watch for regular news and details while your captains prepare for Delta Rising.

    They have a promo for the jem'hadar attack ship at the moment. Should I try to get it or wait for the tier 6 ships to come out first?

    Of the tier 5 ships, what I want is my dreadnought carrier with attack ships. But I have no idea what the tier 6 ships will be. If there is another carrier that has three hanger slots that comes out, I may prefer it to my current dreadnought. I wanted to hear what other peoples opinions are on the matter.

    Overall, should I go for what I want now and upgrade it later, or wait and hope there is something better to move on to?

    It has been fantastic to see the community’s interest in our announcement of Delta Rising!  This expansion includes our first level cap increase in four years, and the players have many questions about how these changes will affect them.

    As with any level cap increase in an MMORPG, there are going to be increases in and shifts in power levels in the game.  One of the most notable changes in this expansion is the introduction of a new tier of starships, commonly known as Tier 6 because our previous top end starships were Tier 5.  The big question everyone is asking is: What does this mean to my existing Tier 5 ships?

    Developing starships takes a lot of dev effort, so Delta Rising is going to include between 7 and 10 new Tier 6 ships at launch, spanning all three factions.  This is nowhere near enough breadth in starships to satisfy the player demand, and we know our players love the ships they are already flying.  With this in mind, we are dedicated to making sure that players can continue flying the ships they love and still have those ships be competitive at the new level 60 end game.  We do not want players to feel that their investment in the current ships is devalued by the expansion, and this is a very challenging thing to do for a game with four years of history since the last level cap increase.

    While we have a detailed plan, we still have plenty of testing to do. There is a lot that can change as we implement and test our plan. We expect to be ready to share full details on the starships within the coming three weeks. Players will also be able to experience the new changes on Tribble soon, and will be able to provide feedback to help us tune and adjust the systems for many weeks prior to actual release.

    On the road to the release of Delta Rising in October, we will be sharing almost everything about the expansion both in official developer blogs and on our public test shard, Tribble.  The only information we plan to hold back is the story, which we will do to avoid spoiling the narrative for those who prefer to wait for the release and experience it themselves.  We have a lot of amazing things on the horizon, so we’re really excited to share them with you as they’re ready.

    The Delta Quadrant is a thrilling and dangerous place, and we look forward to opening it up to all you Federation, Klingon, and Romulan Captains.  This is definitely some of the best work the Star Trek Online team has ever produced and you’re going to love it!

    Maybe it's supposed to be a temporal ship?

    I always kinda wished that we wouldn't get new ships every few levels. Capt Kirk had the enterprise for 5 years, then she was upgraded and he had her for another 20. It would be cool to be able to enhance your ships, but not HAVE to replace my old one. Ah well. higher levels and more content = good

    I agree.  The Enterprise-A was so impressive not because of firepower, but because the crew knoew how to get every trick and surprise out of her.  I think it would be cool if your BOFF abilities scaled inverse to the ship capability, so if you put a VA(50) and his bridge crew on a tier 2 ship, you get more abilities and they do more compared to on a tier 5.  I like plucky older ships, hence I fly an Excel.

    Yes, I'm just the same about sticking to "my" ship... in fact, for much the same reasons, I still fly the same little Science Vessel that I got right after the Miranda-class! That, and I just really like that ship design, it's so nippy (and so comically little). Luckily she's not LITERALLY the same ship these days, but the fleet version of it.

    that actually would have been a better game, instead of getting more and more powerful ships, you improved your bridge officers and your own abilities. Maybe the ship gets enhancements, but the skin and system configs stay the same.
    Ok, lets buy NC soft and use the STO engine to make our own game! who here is rich?
