Star Trek: The Next Generation's ship and crew are warping into Star Trek: Fleet Command. The award-winning mobile 4x MMO expanded beyond the Kelvin timeline of the most recent Star Trek films with the addition of elements from Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: The Original Series. This week, Scopley announced that Star Trek: The Next Generation's USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D and its Starfleet officers are joining the fun. The update introduces new in-game characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation and revamps the game's new user experience around The Next Generation content. The Next Generation's soundtrack is also featured in the game.
The update also brings the launch of Star Trek: Fleet Command's new Away Teams feature and adds more than 40 new missions to the game. You can watch the trailer below and find details about Fleet Command's first five arcs via a press release from Scopely:
