'Star Trek Timelines' Brings Back Holodeck Favorites for "Photonic Fantasies"

Fan favorite characters from Star Trek's holodeck are making a comeback in Star Trek Timelines' "Photonic Fantasies" event.

The "Photonic Fantasies" event sees the return of Minuet, the highly intelligent and alluring holodeck program from the Star Trek: The Next Generation Season One episode "11001001." Minuet has begun appearing, seemingly uninvited, in holosuite programs on Deep Space Nine at about the same time that the space stations inhabitants have started becoming addicted to holosuite activities. Starfleet must find out what Minuet is up to. Is this a personal quest for identity and companionship, or something more sinister?

The "Photonic Fantasies" storyline will play out over four events throughout the month of October as players send their Starfleet captains to investigate Minuet's motives. Along the way, they'll meet new recruitable holodeck characters such as Guinan's holodeck alter-ego, Gloria, the "Author" Doctor, and Minuet herself.

Here's the event schedule for the "Photonic Fantasies" mega-event:

  • October 4 – Pygmalion, Hybrid Faction/Galaxy Event
  • October 11 – Updated and Revised, Galaxy Event
  • October 18 – What Is a Man?, Faction Event
  • October 25 – Captain Proton to the Rescue!, Skirmish Event

Star Trek Timelines features characters, stories and settings from Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise and Star Trek: Discovery, allowing players to collect their favorite characters into a versatile crew capable of handling any challenge.
