Season Fifteen: Age of Discovery focuses on bringing content from Star Trek: Discovery to Star Trek Online.

Age of Discovery: Part 1[edit | edit source]

Age of Discovery: Part 1 was released on October 9, 2018 for PC and set to release in November 13, 2018 for Consoles. The release included content from Star Trek: Discovery, as well as improvements on the New Player Experience and streamlining of several game systems.

Discovery Starting Experience[edit | edit source]

See main article: Discovery Faction

A new starting experience faction, featuring characters (including Sylvia Tilly) and stories set during the Discovery Era, beginning in 2256.

Reputation Changes and Tier Six Reputations[edit | edit source]

With Age of Discovery, the reputation system is being expanded [1]. Changes to Tier 1 to 5 are:

  • Upon hitting Tier V in a reputation, it now sponsors that reputation for the entire account - replacing the previous Reputation Sponsorship system.

Additionally, a sixth tier has been added which includes the following:

  • Improved Effectiveness of Reputation Traits
  • Improved Set Weapon Damage
  • Cosmetic Social Zone Ability

Alongside additional projects upon hitting Tier 6 for the following:

  • Account Wide Discount for Reputation Gear Projects
  • Alternate Vanity Shield Visuals

Task Force Operations[edit | edit source]

The moniker of “queue” has been retired for both PvE and PvP experiences. Instead, they are now called “Task Force Operations”[2] (Task Force Ops, or TFOs).

With this change, a new feature to TFOs has been added: Random Task Force Operations. Entering into a Random Task Force Operation will be as easy as clicking a single button, located prominently within the PvE Group Content interface. Options will exist to opt into Normal Difficulty or Advanced Difficulty content, allowing players some customization for the type of group content they want to opt into experiencing.

Players may participate in Random TFOs without any cooldown or lockout period, immediately re-entering a new one after the previous TFO is completed. Completing a TFO via the Random system will grant bonus rewards, in addition to whatever the TFO itself rewards for completion. These rewards are granted immediately upon success, and there is no limit to the number of times that you can receive them.

There is also a new Cross-Faction Task Force Operation releasing with Season 15:

New Episodes[edit | edit source]

Mission Journal Streamlining[edit | edit source]

The story progression has been changed slightly[6], with some missions being polished, some being removed until they're polished, some arcs being changed into side content, and the addition of wrapper missions for several groups of queues.

Updated missions:

The arcs turned into side-content are:
