Delta Quadrant[edit | edit source]

The Kazon are one of the many returning species

Story content of Delta Rising takes place in the Delta Quadrant, exploring the effects of the journey of U.S.S. Voyager through the region more than 30 years earlier.[1]

The expansion only explores a small part of the Quadrant, namely the region Voyager explored after it crossed the Nekrit Expanse. Featured races include Talaxians, Ocampa, Kazon, Benthan, Hierarchy, Malon, Hazari, Octanti, Kobali, and Automated Personnel Units. Notably the besieged homeworld of the Kobali will be an adventure zone[2] while another featured world harbors a "dark secret".[3] The new area is covered by the Vyntadi Sector Block and Tekara Sector Block, with the Dyson Sphere gateway in the former.

Voice talents[edit | edit source]

Tuvok will be joined by 4 other Voyager crew members

Tim Russ will reprise his role as Admiral Tuvok and will be joined by Garrett Wang as Harry Kim, commanding officer of the U.S.S. Rhode Island,[4] Robert Picardo as The Doctor, Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine and Ethan Phillips as Neelix.[5] Kim Rhodes also returned as Jhet'leya during the 5 Year Anniversary Event.

Intrepid class revamp[edit | edit source]

An Intrepid class bridge

U.S.S. Voyager and other Intrepid class ships got an extensive visual overhaul. In addition, a complete interior based on Voyager has been slated for release, both for use in missions and as a ship interior for players. It includes Astrometrics and two variants of the Mess Hall (either with replicators or a kitchen).

Level 60[edit | edit source]

The level-cap was increased from level 50 to level 60 (as Fleet Admiral for UFP/RR and Dahar Master for KDF), the first such increase in over four years.[6] The increase includes new Mk XIII and Mk XIV gear[7], new skill specialization, and Tier 6 star ships.

Tier 6 ships[edit | edit source]

9 new Tier 6 ships will be available

Nine new Tier 6 ships[8] were available from launch. The five Federation ships: Phantom Intel Escort , Eclipse Intel Cruiser , Scryer Intel Science Vessel , Guardian Cruiser and Dauntless Class Experimental Science Vessel. The two Klingon ships are Qib Intel Battlecruiser and MaHa Raptor and two Romulan ships, the Faeht Intel Warbird and Aelahl Light Warbird Battlecruiser.

Existing Tier 5 ships are upgradable via a 700 zen fee for one upgrade or 2000 zen for a pack of 4 upgrades, to a Tier 5U ship that provides increased stats, but not the special abilities and intelligence officer seat provided by Tier 6 ships. Very rare ships from Lock Boxes, duty officer survivor packs, the Lobi store or event ships can be upgraded to Tier 5U free of charge. The only tier 5 ships ineligible for upgrade will be free ships, Mirror ships, ships bought with pure Fleet Credits and ships earned through missions.[9]

New Systems[edit | edit source]

Intelligence Boffs[edit | edit source]

A new type of Bridge Officer: Intelligence Officer[10] is introduced as a specialization - distinct from "profession" (Engineering, Science and Tactical). Intel officers will also have a conventional profession and retain such skills and traits in addition to their new intelligence abilities. Their space intelligence skills can only be used in Tier 6 ships that have a hybrid slot for intelligence officers. Ground abilities can be used in the normal way. New intelligence gear will also be introduced which at least includes a grappling hook, allowing players to climb or abseil.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • During the announcement of Delta Rising, developer Al Rivera officially promoted Garrett Wang to Lieutenant Junior Grade, a take on the fact that Harry Kim never received a promotion from Ensign during Voyager's journey through the Delta Quadrant.
