I think we’ve met our criteria for success: people keep playing and enjoying the game, making their own captains, talking about how they feel like they’re ‘in Star Trek,’ making videos about our episodes, and talking about our stories and releases. For many years we served as active content while Star Trek didn’t have new shows on television. Now that gap has been bridged and I’m pleased that this gives us new directions to explore, even while people can still find the experiences that they love from the original series, the Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, or Enterprise in our missions.

We also need to look at how gameplay itself has changed over the last ten years. The MMO market today isn’t the same as it was in 2010. Players want different things and we need to respond, and while we’ve already done so – with our new Patrol system (which appeals to players who want a quick, high-action piece of content to play in just a few minutes) and our updated Campaign Events (which give you big rewards when you participate in a series of events) – we need to continue. We want to provide more interesting events with unique and distinctive gameplay and rewards, and to improve our gameplay experience so it’s easy for anyone to pick up the game, play, and stay.

Star Trek Online is set thirty years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis. The alliance between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire has collapsed, and they are again at war. The Romulan Star Empire continues to deal with the fallout of the loss of their homeworld twenty-two years earlier (as shown in J. J. Abrams' Star Trek film), while the Dominion rebuilds its forces. The Borg Collective has re-emerged as a major threat. In later expansions the Vaadwaur, the Iconians, the Na'Kuhl, the Krenim, the Terran Empire, the Voth, Species 8472 (called "The Undine" in the game), the Tzenkethi and the Hur'q are also introduced as adversaries.

Agents of Yesterday is Star Trek Online's third expansion, announced on May 5, 2016, as the game's contribution to the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. The expansion allows for the creation of Starfleet player characters from the era of the original series who become involved in an ongoing "Temporal Cold War" (a storyline that was introduced in Enterprise, and brought into STO with the "Future Proof" missions in Season 11) with the Na'kuhl species. Matt Winston reprised his role as Daniels, the temporal agent who fought alongside Captain Jonathan Archer to stop the Na'kuhl in several episodes of Enterprise. He was also joined by Walter Koenig, reprising his role as Pavel Chekov, and Chris Doohan as Montgomery Scott, filling in for his late father, James Doohan. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
