It's been another great week of new information about Star Trek Online's
upcoming new Featured Episode and Season Eight. We've learned that the new FE, which is set to be released on Thursday, October 31st, will be called Sphere of Influence. The title isn't a much of a surprise as most of us have been expecting that the new FE will carry Star Trek Online's
story from the Iconian gate on New Romulus to the new content featuring a Dyson Sphere in Season Eight.
A new sponsorship system will be added to STO's
reputation system, which should benefit those of us who like to play multiple alts. I've also had a chance to peruse the new Voth Command reputation faction on the Tribble test server and learn it contains some interesting new passive skills.
Finally, a lot more content has been released onto Tribble, including the new Solonae space adventure zone. There's also some great news for those who don't subscribe to STO
but still want to test the new content: Tribble has been opened up to all players
, not just subscribers! If you don't want to know anything about the new content, be warned: This column will have a few spoilers!
