Star Trek is back with the launch of the rather excellent series starring Captain Picard, and joining him on his new adventure is Voyager’s own Borg, Seven of Nine. Star Trek Online are capitalising on the interest in the new series by adding Jerri Ryan’s famous face to the game.
Joining her will be another strong independent woman, Star Trek: Discovery’s Michael Burnham, played by Sonequa Martin-Green.
I’ve not been paying attention to Star Trek Online recently so I have no idea how these characters are in the same game as in the series they live hundreds of years apart, but I’m sure there’s some timey-wimey explanation.
As you can see in the trailer below the game also features the crews of Voyager, the Original Series, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Discovery, and a Borg Queen.
