Cryptic has announced Season Three for Star Trek Online will go live next month.

The studio says the new update “features several upgrades, progressive changes and new features to the game”, along with a beta version of the mission creator.

The third major update will include the following, for all you Trekkies out there:

  • The Foundry Beta (v 0.3) – Cryptic’s player-created content system will go into public beta when Season Three: Genesis launches. The Foundry gives players the chance to design their own missions in Star Trek Online. Players can share their creations with friends, and Cryptic’s proprietary content rating system will ensure only the best missions become promoted.
  • Episode Replay – In Genesis, players will be able to replay every mission they’ve previously enjoyed, and some will feature brand new rewards.
  • Borg Technology In Ships – In Season Three, players will be able to integrate Borg technology into their ships. This new loot from Special Task Force missions will greatly augment a ship’s usefulness as well as its appearance.
  • New Sector Space – Cryptic has revamped Sector Space to give it a more realistic look and feel.

Season Three: Genesis will launch free for current STO subscribers on December 9.
