Star Trek Online is incredibly proud to announce our fourth major expansion, Victory is Life. Paying homage to fan-favorite Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, this brand-new expansion will bring Captains to the Gamma Quadrant and beyond, in a new story kicked off by the invasion of the mysterious Hur’q. You’ll be able to play as a brand new faction, the Jem’Hadar; experience six new episodes in the Star Trek Online story; and interact with ten of the original cast members from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. We’re so excited to announce four of those actors for you here today, with more coming in next few weeks.

At the end of the episode, “Scylla and Charybdis,” which first introduced players to the Hur’q threat, players were reunited with famed DS9 Chief of Security, Odo, as played by René Auberjonois. René is the first Star Trek: Deep Space Nine actor who will be joining us for Victory is Life. When last we saw Odo, he had returned to the Great Link, but the threat of the Hur’q returns him to our space. What is so dire that it could inspire him to return? You’ll find out later this summer.
Image
t wouldn’t be the same to have Odo without his greatest nemesis and foil, which is why it’s wonderful that Armin Shimerman is returning to the role of everyone’s favorite Ferengi bartender, Quark. Quark stayed on Deep Space Nine at the end of the show, but it’s been decades since then in the timeline of Star Trek Online. We’ll find out just what new schemes he’s been up to, and how they might affect the galaxy.
Image
After taking command of the station at the end of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Commander Kira Nerys went on a spiritual journey that ended with her as the Kai of the Bajoran people. But with Odo returning to this quadrant, Nana Visitor will bring Kira to life once again, bringing one of the most beloved characters in Star Trek history to life in Star Trek Online.
Image
And finally, the return of a familiar face. J.G. Hertzler has spent the last year guiding players in Star Trek Online as the long-thought-dead Klingon general, Martok. Now he will lead the forces of the combined Federation, Klingon, and Romulan alliance into battle against the Klingons’ oldest and greatest enemy, the fearsome Hur’q. Adventure once again with the legendary Klingon general when Victory is Life releases in June 2018 on PC, and later this year on Xbox One and Playstation 4.
Image
In addition to these new cast members and features, Victory is Life will raise the Star Trek Online level cap to 65, introduce a new queue, new progression systems, and will add a Sector Battlezone, a new gameplay feature that takes players into a war between the stars to save the Gamma Quadrant. We’ll have more information on all of these features very soon, and we can’t wait for you to experience them.

Victory is Life.

This looks interesting. I wonder if they will be adding a new tier of starships or if T6 will remain the top with the level cap increasing.

Since Jem'Hadar vessels are already in game as special ships (Lock Box etc), I'm curious how that'll, pardon the pun--or don't--Fly?

We've all been predicting some version of this (Or Dominion, or Cardassian, etc.), for years now, so I'm curious to see how that'll end up working as well, given that the Jem'Hadar are not really a faction unto themselves. Still, it'll be enough to make me play the extra handful of levels regardless.

It would be nice if the Gamma Quadrant is a little more interesting than Delta was. Guess we'll see soon-ish.
