Players will meet Captain Ezri Dax, voiced by Nicole de Boer from "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine", Captain Harry Kim, voiced by Garret Wang from "Star Trek: Voyager", and Admiral Kuumaarke, voiced by Kipleigh Brown from "Star Trek: Enterprise". These encounters give the game additional authenticity and depth.
New features and events
"Both Worlds" comes with several new features. These include a new episode called "Abyss of the Scorpion", in which players explore a new reality vortex in liquid space. There is also a new Task Force "Battle of Wolf 359", an event called "King and Collective" and the "Random Elite Task Forces" feature, which offers additional rewards.
Celebrating the 14th anniversary
To celebrate the 14th anniversary of Star Trek Online, an anniversary event will return. More details will be announced in a dev blog in the coming weeks.
