Sunrise of a Brand New Dawn - Lets Play Star Trek Online

Hello Dwellers, Welcome To The Basement... It's  Tuesday, So lets play Star Trek Online! 

Star Trek Online's Agents of Yesterday may release tomorrow, but knowing from experience how buggy the launch of major events in game can be, I'll continue to do this series with Admiral Sobar's crew, allowing for Cryptic to get the kinks out before trying the new missions. (Particularly if one has to start a new character, like one had to do with a couple of years ago to get certain perks)

So onto Sunrise, which of course comes after Midnight... I see what they did there with the naming of the missions... anyway, with the Iconian War ended, it's time to explore the galaxy once again, and the Romulan Republic sees this as a way to get new allies and expand its borders. Our mission to investigate a star that is suddenly dying, but its not showing any of the usual signs associated with such an event.

Now this mission ties into one episode of Star Trek The Next Generation, Captain's Holiday, as well as the first three seasons of Star Trek Enterprise, with the Temporal Cold War, as Star Trek Online is starting to reach that point in time, in particular with introducing the Tox Uthat... but let's get to the one in-joke that everyone knows about this mission, Kal Danno's ship... it's Bigger on the Inside... yeah... Star Trek Online basically made it cannon that the Federation will have their own TARDISs... I'm not even kidding with that.

As far as gameplay goes, it starts off very 'Star Trek like', arrive scan things, move to new point, etc, then you meet the Lukari and the before mention Kal Danno to see about fixing the star. You get a little ground combat on Kal's ship and good amount of space combat. After dealing with the Iconians, the Tholian ground and space forces are a cakewalk.

For all intents and purposes this mission, sets up the next several missions that we'll be playing in the coming weeks before we get to the Agents of Yesterday content. And we'll close this out with some screen shots!
