The TOS Starfleet is one of the playable factions in Star Trek Online. Not a faction in true sense of the word, the TOS Starfleet presents an alternate starting experience for Starfleet Captains before taking them into the regular Starfleet storyline.

Created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series, players are given the ability to create a new captain in that era and are set on an adventure featuring classic story lines, locations, celebrities, and era-appropriate starships.

Starfleet is the United Federation of Planets' military, defensive, and exploratory branch. Note that "Starfleet" is not the Federation, it is only the military branch to a civil government, similar to the United States of America's naval branch.

Player Characters[edit | edit source]

Upon starting a new TOS Starfleet character, players must choose a career (analogous to a 'class' from other MMORPGs) and a species (or race). The career determines the character's native abilities, and the race determines the character's innate traits and, in certain cases, special abilities. In combat, the career choice and racial traits affect the gameplay and strategies used by the player. When the player completes (or skips) the tutorial, a Pioneer-class starship is assigned to them.

Classes[edit | edit source]

See main article: Profession

In Star Trek Online, players may choose which career they wish their character to adopt. Players are able to choose from the following three career paths:

Tactical Engineering Science

Each profession has its own advantages (and disadvantages) in the gameplay of Star Trek Online.

Races[edit | edit source]

TOS Starfleet characters can choose one of the four founding races of the United Federation of Planets. A player's choice of race is important and cannot be changed, so it is advisable to choose carefully.

Starships[edit | edit source]

See main article: Federation playable starships

The only faction-specific starship is the Pioneer-class vessel. In addition, all TOS Starfleet characters receive the Class F Shuttle from the 23rd Century Bundle for free by completing “Explore Earth Spacedock”. If the player has purchased the TOS Constitution Class Cruiser from the C-Store, it can also be claimed from the Earth Spacedock (23rd Century) Ship Vendor.

After “The Battle of Caleb IV” has been completed, TOS Starfleet players can use any starship available to the 25th century Starfleet players. As part of the Agents Of Yesterday expansion, several new starships, inspired by the designs from 23rd century, were added to the C-Store. However, these starships are not available to players until after joining the main Federation timeline.

There are three main types of playable Starfleet vessel, each with numerous sub-types for different ranks and styles of play, and each of those sub-types may have a number of cosmetic variants. The types of vessel are generally biased towards a specific class, but players of any class can captain any type of vessel.

Storyline missions[edit | edit source]

The tutorial and Agents of Yesterday arc are all set in 2270, which is a year after the end of the final season of The Original Series, and during the second season of The Animated Series. However, some missions within this arc involve time travel back to the three seasons of the original series.

Once “The Battle of Caleb IV” has been completed, player is sent to 2409 and integrated into the standard Federation storyline. TOS players have some specific dialogue to reflect the events they were part of in the past and, to differentiate the two factions, they retain the 23rd century effects and animations (e.g. the transporter effect).

Temporal Agent Recruitment[edit | edit source]

Main article: Temporal Agent Recruitment

All 23rd century characters created during this six-week event received a [Temporal Transponder], becoming Temporal Agents. This gave them access to numerous new benefits and rewards, similar to the Delta Recruitment event.

Temporal Agents played a story which paralleled that of their faction, but had additional unique goals. Tasked with uncovering probes left by the Na'kuhl, Temporal Agents would sometimes find additional mission steps, marked with a Temporal objective.png symbol, leading to something on the map which would help fight the Temporal Cold War.
