While Captain Kirk and the original crew of the Enterprise had an initial five-year mission to explore the cosmos, Star Trek Online
players have had a mere six months to do the same. In this span of time, a lot has happened for STO
-- some good, some bad, some controversial, and some radically different. As the game heads into its second six-month tour of duty, executive producer Dan Stahl

In the latest State of the Game report
