Star Trek Online goes Free-to-Play

Star Trek Online, an MMO in set in the Trek Universe by Cryptic Studios, is now available free of charge.

The game was originally released in 2010 and featured a hybrid game engine, with both space and ground combat. Each player is the Captain of a starship, fighting, exploring and boldly going on behalf of either the United Federation of Planets or the Klingon Empire.

Now the Free-to-play game is available to anyone wishing to give the game a try, with future content funded through the sale of items in the in-game store. Octavian Vanguard originally set up a ‘Fleet’ (STO guild) when the game launched and this fleet will likely see some activity as new content is released after the free-to-play launch.
