In the year 2411, the Klingon Empire was in ruins. Chancellor J’mpok, mad for power, declared himself emperor, triggering a fracture of the great houses that could spell the end of the great empire. With nowhere to turn, you journey to the Klingon holy planet Boreth, intending to raise the only warrior who can unite the empire under his leadership. The empire’s first chancellor, L’Rell.
Star Trek Online, the free online role-playing game, has always lived instead between the Star Trek series. Now that there are three new Star Trek shows on the air, with more to come, we’re in an incredible position to be able to connect different eras and different storytellers. The biggest example is probably the update that just launched on Xbox One (and playable on Xbox Series X), House Reborn. After a year of preparing for this, the history of the Klingon Empire will take an exciting turn as we bring together Klingons from past and present.
Boreth, the Klingon holy world, has appeared in two Star Trek series. In “Star Trek: The Next Generation”, he was shown as a dark, cavernous place, where Worf traveled to receive a vision from Kahless, the greater Klingon. In “Star Trek: Discovery”, it was a vast medieval place full of light. It’s obvious why the planet looks so different on two different shows – television, and its ability to take us to far-off worlds, has come a long way since we last saw the planet. But Star Trek Online is in a unique position to bridge this gap. Our artists have created a Boreth faithful to both eras. And our writers have created a story that connects them all.
There are over 40 Star Trek actors in Star Trek Online, reprising their roles from the TV show. House Reborn brings together the most Klingons of most eras. JG Hertzler returns as Martok, possibly the greatest Klingon general to ever live. Robert O’Reilly appears both as the original STO character Aakar and Gowron, the treacherous Klingon who appeared on both “The Next Generation” and “Deep Space Nine”. And two newcomers join us. Mary Chieffo is L’Rell, the Klingon matriarch who united the Empire in “Discovery.” Her son, and Boreth’s leader Monk, in this series was Tenavik, played by Kenneth Mitchell. Ken couldn’t save Tenavik’s return, but he was able to coach his replacement, Sam Witwer. You might have heard Sam’s voice screaming “Kenobi!” in the middle of a desert once.
Never played an honorable warrior of the Klingon Empire? Now is the best time to try it. The Klingon departure experience has been completely redone. Take command of your own ship by slaying a traitorous captain in honorable combat. Uncover a conspiracy that threatens the entire Empire and travel to Grethor, the Klingon Hell, to kill one or three gods. You will find yourself shouting “Qapla”! “in no time.
