Star Trek Online's Largest Expansion Yet Unleashes Playable Romulans

R-R-Romulans have r-r-ridges. Perfect World Entertainment's is gearing up to launch the most ambitious Star Trek Online expansion to date in May, giving players tired of making excuses for their Vulcan characters to roleplay space sex a more passionate alternative with Legacy of Romulus. And hey look — Tasha Yar is back!

Or at least Denise Crosby has signed on, reprising her role as Empress Sela, created after her more Federation-minded character was killed off, making Mr. Roboto sad. Crosby will voice Yar's half-Romulan daughter in the expansion, which will see players involved in an uprising against the Tal Shiar regime.

Me? I'm just keen to pilot a Warbird. Never was much of a Romulan fan, but I really dig their rides.

DISCUSSION

Denise Crosby already reprised Yar for the three-year anniversary and the Temporal Ambassador event.

The mood around the game right now is "cautious optimism." The fact that all three factions—including Klingons—will now start at level 1 has people hopeful that there will be a lot more content for the non Federation factions. It also has people worried that the game will become an interminable grind for the non Federation players.

Glad to see the game doing well. It's the Star Trek game I always wanted to play, and there have been a lot of new players since the end of 2012. This could bring in a lot more, and bring back a lot of old ones as well.
