Star Trek Discovery is coming to Star Trek Online, along with Cadet Tilly.

For the first time, Star Trek Online is getting a new expansion based on a currently airing Star Trek series, and will include Starfleet Academy Cadet, Syliva Tilly, voiced by Discovery actress Mary Wiseman.

Set in 2256, just after the Battle at the Binary Stars, the expansion centres around the Klingon threat, with the first instalment planned for this autumn.

Players will create their own Discovery-era Federation character before joining forces with Tilly, who has returned to lend a hand with their first assignment.

Accoring to the official description, players will “journey to iconic locations from Star Trek: Discovery, like the Dilithium Mines of Corvan II, explore the new experimental Crossfield class Starship, the U.S.S. Glenn, and defend Starbase 1 from a fearsome attack by the Klingon House of D’Ghor.”

The update will also include “two new episodes for Starfleet Academy cadets, a new Task Force Operation to defend Starbase 1, and new reputations that expand the game’s Reputation System to Tier 6 and unlock powerful new rewards.”

The expansion is set to drop on PC this autumn, with a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release to follow.
